This was my first time trying out this product; I decided to cut back on my supplements spend on Whey and this product was my guinea pig. I have used a lot of Whey powders in the past so I had range of products which I was able to compare Scitec 100% Whey Protein Professional with; my review is for the vanilla flavour in size. The packaging is eye catching in a see through tub, which was what initially got my attention while shopping online. Most important for me is the ease of mixing. This one does it quite easily using either shaker or blender with water or milk and doesn't leave any unsightly clumps. The vanilla flavour is great tasting, you catch a whiff of that as soon as you rip off the security seal. It also turns out excellent tasting protein pancakes. The only downside is that if you (like me) do not have a sweet tooth, you may find it a bit on the sweet side. However this can be useful in taking the edge off if you have cravings, I take advantage of this and use it (with milk) as a last meal before I retire for the night. The sweetness can mask the taste of bland 'extras' you choose to stack the shake with oats, kale etc if you have a sensitive palate and can't handle those. Overall I am very impressed with my purchase of Scitec 100% Whey Protein Professional. It ticked most of my boxes... great tasting, looks good on top of the fridge and most of all great value for money. I will certainly be purchasing it when it runs out.
Net Protein Utilisation (NPU) is the percentage of ingested nitrogen that is retained in the body, and the Biological Value (BV) gives the percentage of absorbed nitrogen that is retained. Biological Value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, thus it’s Biological Value is great compared to other dietary protein sources like meat, fish, eggs or soy. “Anabolic” is the physiological term for metabolic processes in the body that build up something. Dietary proteins are the source of nitrogen and indispensable amino acids, which the body requires for tissue growth and maintenance. Therefore, Anabolic Whey’s protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass, and also to the maintenance of normal bones*. Proteins from milk are so-called complete proteins, because they provide the body with all necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids (. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine) that are considered essential for life, because the body cannot synthesize them. Anabolic Whey is a source of calcium. Calcium contributes to normal muscle function, neurotransmission and energy-yielding metabolism, and is needed also for the maintenance of normal bones*.
