Dymatize Nutrition ISO-100 Whey Protein
Dymatize ISO-100 – one of the best buy whey isolate proteins. This whey supplement is pure hydrolyzed whey isolate, thus, one of the best whey proteins on the market.
Dymatize ISO-100 comes in many different flavors, with grams of protein, carbohydrates, fats and fibers per 100g of powder, given in the following table:
|Cookies & Cream||81g||4g||1.5g||0g|
|Gourmet Pina Colada||86g||3g||1.5g||0g|
Protein source is hydrolyzed whey protein isolates - and nothing else. Of course, supplement contains smaller amounts of other ingredients like flavors and sweeteners.
As one can see, macronutrient content varies slightly with flavors, but protein content is rather high, while content of fats, carbs and fibers is rather low.
Also, serving size varies between flavors, however, each serving has 25g of protein including 5.5g of BCAA (2.7g are leucine).
That means that flavor, for example, Gourmet Vanilla, contains around 19g of BCAA (9.2g leucine) per 100g of powder or 22g of BCAA (10.8g of leucine) per 100g of protein.
Dymatize ISO-100 comes in 1.6, 3 and 5 lbs containers. Unfortunately there are no 10 lb containers. Also, there is a 10 serving (0.71 lbs) bag for those that want to try this protein supplement.
Powder mixes instantly in shaker or even in the glass with a spoon with very little foam. Taste is good.
Dymatize ISO-100 is great whey protein for Post Workout Meal (PWM) shakes. For breakfast, ISO-100 digests to quickly even when slowed down with oats and similar foods. Also for different shakes with fruits or yogurt, it is simply too fast whey protein. But from time to time, quick snack with Dymatize ISO-100 with bananas, strawberris or yogurt and milk is good thing to increase daily amount of consumed protein. If possible, make those snacks with slower whey protein, or even better with egg or casein based protein powders.
As said before, Dymatize ISO-100 is great for PWMs, but when combined with creatine and additional BCAA, it makes fantastic PWM that greatly helps with muscle recovery even on low calorie diets. If you are on a Keto diet, feel free to choose any of the flavors since maximum amount of carbs per 100g of powder is around 3-4g - at most ~1g per ~30g serving.
If you train around 45 minutes, ISO-100 can be excellent preworkout drink (plus PWM after workout, of course). If you workout more than 60-70 minutes, take one scoop of ISO-100 during your workout (plus PWM).
Real food is real food - real food is generaly cheaper, taste better etc. but many times, it is much more convienient to take supplements.
Price of Dymatize ISO-100 Whey protein is, of course, higher than whey proteins based on 'ordinary' whey isolate, whey concentrate or whey protein blend. From time to time, one can find this (and other) supplement on the sale, at very good price.
Dymatize ISO-100 Whey - recommended. Highly recommended for periods of very intensive workouts and/or low calorie/cargohydrate intake. If low on the budget, buy cheaper whey protein and rest of the money spend on real food.
If you place larger order, 10 serving bags are sometimes even available as sample bags, but that is not very often.
Anyway, if you are lactose intolerant, feel free to try this 10 serving bag - if you don't like it, well, you didn't throw away much money. But, seriously, with practically, almost no carbs, no gluten and no lactose, have stomach issues with Dymatize ISO-100 are rare. Personally, I prefer chocolate flavors, this time too. However, other flavors are good, even if you don't like much fruity and similar flavors.
