Muscletech are one of the rare supplement companies that consistently reviews their product range and refreshes their range with a steady release of new supplements. While most of the releases are nothing too exciting nor revolutionary, Muscletech are a company that focuses on affordable products that work and their range easily demonstrates this. Take the latest “Essentials Series” from the company as an example. This Series focuses on simple formulations, which give you all the “essentials” you need to perform, recover and grow. The first product released from the series is Platinum 100% Whey. Let’s take a look at what the product contains and how it compares with other similar supplements.
Muscletech Platinum 100% Whey Highlights
- Blend of 100% Whey Proteins
- Whey Protein Isolate, Concentrate and Hydrolysate
- Fast Absorbing, Easy to Digest and Effective
Muscletech Platinum 100% Whey Ingredients & Dosage
While no details have been released about the new Platinum 100% Whey, knowing that it will be part of the Essential Series will probably mean that the new supplement resembles that of Optimum Nutrition’s famous and similarly named 100% Whey Gold Standard. As such the supplement will most likely contain:
- Whey Protein Blend – Including whey protein isolate, concentrate and hydrolysate.
- Added Recovery Ingredients – Such as creatine, branched chain amino acids and glutamine.
Platinum 100% Whey should be available in similar Muscletech protein sizes of 2lb (908g) and 4lb (1.8kg)
Muscletech Platinum 100% Whey Pros & Effectiveness
Surprisingly, Muscletech only have one other supplement that is a 100% whey protein blend. Belonging to the Premium Series, the 100% Premium Whey Protein+ is a mixture of whey proteins along with added creatine, BCAAs, glutamine and taurine. As such, while it is proposed that there could be similar recovery ingredients in the Platinum 100% Whey, chances are that Muscletech will choose to keep the supplement simple and only have whey proteins. Optimum 100% Whey Gold Standard is still enjoying its success as the world’s best selling protein powder, so keeping the new Platinum
100% Whey as simple as its competition will serve Muscletech well.
Muscletech Platinum 100% Whey Cons
If Muscletech’s latest product is indeed a simple 100% whey protein, then there’s very little negatives one could say about the product. A 100% whey protein blend is fast absorbing and effective for anyone training and wanting to support their daily protein intake. The only foreseeable issue with a blend like this is that one would need to ensure that their meal intakes were proportioned well so as to maintain plenty of amino acid delivery to the muscles throughout the day.
Muscletech Platinum 100% Taste & Mixability
Muscletech have had no issues flavouring their Performance Series range of proteins and they have a lot more ingredients to deal with. Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Whey is a fairly plain tasting protein in comparison, so if Muscletech can maintain that trend for this new Platinum 100% Whey, Optimum Nutrition should be worried.
Muscletech Platinum 100% Verdict
Muscletech have always been a big and successful company. However, the most common complaint about the company was that their products were more expensive than many of their competitors. With the new Essentials Series, Muscletech have the opportunity to take charge of this issue and give Optimum Nutrition and many of their other close competitors a run for their money this coming year.
