Nitro Tech is another whey protein powder which we compared in our
price shoppers' protein
comparison guide. It came in second last in terms of the cost
for protein content, just beating out Methoxy Pro.
A lot of users have had positive reviews on Nitro
Tech. But before you go out and buy some for yourself, you should
read the rest of this Nitro Tech review article.
97% Whey Protein Isolate? Don't Be Fooled!
In every single Nitro Tech ad, you'll see this
line: "SynthePro is an exclusive blend of whey protein including
whey peptides and a new 97% whey protein isolate". Wow! Doesn't
that sound great? A whooping 97% whey protein isolate content! Well,
not really... If you've read our article explaining the difference
between Whey protein isolate and concentrate, you'll know that
Whey protein isolate costs a lot more than concentrate. A protein
supplement containing 97% whey isolate is gonna cost you an arm
and a leg! ;-)
Muscletech Nitro Tech isn't 97% whey protein isolate.
It just means that the isolates used are 97% protein, not 97% whey
protein isolate. This reported percentage is also on a dry basis,
which means the isolates in Nitro Tech is 97% protein after all
moisture is removed. In general, protein products has 4 to 8% moisture,
which means on an "as-is basis", Nitro Tech could have
less than 90% protein content.
I think this needed some clearing up, as many
people believe that Nitro Tech is almost all pure whey protein isolate.
It's a mix of whey isolate and concentrate, like most other whey
protein supplements - to keep the cost down.
MuscleTech Nitro-Tech Taste Test
Nitro Tech comes in 3 standard flavors: chocolate,
vanilla, and strawberry. It has a pretty decent taste (I've only
tried chocolate so far), and many other users have had some positive
reviews on its taste.
Quality-wise, I don't think Nitro Tech is a standout
from the rest of the protein supplements. It's not made of pure
whey isolate as some might think, and it has a pretty standard line-up
of ingredients and amino acids like Glutamine, Leucine, Arganine,
Phenylalanine, and it also has some creatine as well.
Each serving of Nitro Tech has 110 calories, 1.5g
fat, 3g carbs and 20g protein.
At retail, a 4lb tub of Nitro Tech can cost you
upwards of $80 bucks. pretty expensive if you ask me. Even though
Nitro Tech works quite good, and many people have had good results
from using it, I find the price tag a little hard to swallow. But
you can save some money, and get Nitro Tech for under $60 bucks
purchasing it online.
