Dymatize Elite Whey Protein
The first big WOW is the price. You can find 5 pound jars of this protein for under $36 online. That’s really good, and much less than what you’ll be paying in a store for lower quality protein. Even compared to better known brands the price is great.
Of course, price doesn’t matter if the ingredients are no good. So let’s check out the two main areas of interest:
24g of protein
Ok, 24 grams is pretty standard here. It’s broken down into Ion exchanged whey isolate and CF Ultra protein concentrate. This means it’s a blend of high-quality whey isolate cut with concentrate. The CF Ultra process does denature some of the whey protein, but it’s still good to go.
2g of fat
Some people are advertising this as great for dieters. 117 calories is indeed on the low end of the caloric sale. This is mostly because there are no carbs in Dymatize Elite Whey.
Also, Elite Whey Protein includes a proprietary enzyme blend to help digest the protein. That’s a nice bonus since many other of it’s class do not include digestive enzymes.
You normally see protein powders with low carbs (like this one) load up on stevia or aspartame to add flavor. Instead, Dymatize uses Acesulfame K for sweetness though. If AceK is a big deal for you, I’d have to say pass on this then. If you don’t mind artificial sweeteners though, it’s okay.
They make 11 flavors so you can definitely find one you like.
Excellent value. Cuts out lots of the fat and carbs from protein powder, along with a ton of cash off the price.
