Dymatize ISO-100 review

by

Are you looking for a new 100% whey protein isolate to try? How does zero fat, zero carbohydrate, zero sugar, zero cholesterol, and 25g of protein sound to you?! With those facts it was a no-brainer for me to try Dymatize ISO-100. The hardest part…what flavour to choose! Here is my Dymatize ISO-100 review.

Ingredient ProfileDymatize ISO 100 review   whey protein reviews

The 100% whey protein isolate in ISO-100 is hydrolyzed and instantized leaving a very pure, highly bioavailable protein source that is free of carbs, fats and lactose. ISO-100 has a solid amino acid profile, is quickly absorbed and easily digested. The ingredient list is fairly short so you can easily see there is limited fluff and filler. Depending on flavour, each 28g serving provides 24-25g of protein, which translates to 86-89% protein. Most flavours have the following nutrition facts: 106 calories, 0 carbs, 0 sugar, 0 fat, 0 cholesterol, 25g protein and 50mg sodium. There are a couple of exceptions however. Cookies and Cream has 100 calories, 1.5g carbs, 24g protein, and 80mg sodium per serving, and Chocolate has 1g carbs and 24g protein. Not a major difference but if you’re wanting to stick with a zero carb isolate and slightly higher protein, then avoid these 2 flavours.

Mixability

Dymatize ISO-100 has been processed to such a pure form that it dissolves almost instantly in water. Very little mixing or shaking is required for a great consistency with no clumps. It mixes so easily that all you need is a simple shaker without a shaker ball. It’s recommended to use 12 ounces of liquid for every 28g scoop of protein. I usually use less than 12 ounces, maybe around 8, and I prefer my protein with water, but you can also easily add ISO-100 to milk or juice.

Taste

Dymatize ISO-100 is available in 6 flavours – chocolate, vanilla, berry, cookies & cream, banana, and pina colada – and they are all good. Very good. My top 2 would have to be vanilla and berry. I like to mix it up so I always keep more than one flavour on hand.

Effectiveness

ISO-100 is a great whey protein isolate for me. The low calories combined with zero carbs and fats is great for building muscle and clean bulking. I feel the best when I get pure protein with very little else. Since there is no lactose, I experience zero bloating or digestion problems when taking ISO-100. It also noticeably reduces post-workout soreness and improves my recovery.

Conclusion

Dymatize ISO-100 is a clean, pure 100% hydrolyzed whey protein isolate that is easily digested and rapidly absorbed. It comes in a lot of delicious flavours that provide a solid amount of protein per serving while keeping the calories under 106, and the carbs and fats at (or close to) zero. There is no lactose in ISO-100 so bloating and stomach problems should not be an issue. If you’re looking to gain muscle and improve your recovery, it’s recommended to consume 2-3 servings per day for best results…first thing in the morning, 30-60 minutes prior to working out, and then within 30 minutes after your workout. A 5 lb tub of ISO-100 has 81 servings and should last you over a month if you take 2-3 servings per day.
