Sci Fit Econo Whey Protein Review

SciFit Econo Whey - Cost Effective?

I've used Sci Fit Nutrition's Econo Whey protein quite a few times (inter-changing with my Optimum 100 whey for variety) since I was introduced to it a while back, and I have to say that I really like it, for cost and quality considerations!

As the name suggests (econo whey protein), this is a very competitively priced whey protein supplement, with all the fixings like any other whey protein concentrate powder on the market today. However, the major plus side of this is that Econo Whey Protein is about 10% cheaper than any other brands. Typically, a 5 pounder will cost around $50 to $65 (online prices), and quite a bit higher at retail stores. A 5lb tub of econo whey can be purchased for $39 online.

For comparison purposes, we'll match up econo whey with one of my favorites, Optimum's 100% Whey Protein. I'm sure many of you probably have read my Protein Powder comparison guide, which ranked 25 top protein supplements by category and cost. Let's take a quick look at how well Econo Whey matches up against 100% Whey.

100% Whey Protein

  • Cost - $46.99
  • CPS - $0.626
  • CPGP - $0.0261

Econo Whey Protein

  • Cost - $39.00
  • CPS - $0.4875
  • CPGP - $0.0271

CPS - cost per serving
CPGP - cost per gram of protein

While the Econo Whey Protein is the winner in the cost per serving category, ON's 100% Whey is the winner when it comes down to cost per gram of protein - as it contains a higher protein count per serving (24g vs 18g).

Sci Fit Econo Whey Protein - Quality?

Besides price considerations, quality is something that everyone considers as well. Econo whey's protein content, like most other whey concentrates on the market, consists of mainly micro ultra filtered whey protein concentrates and ion-exchange whey protein isolates. Obviously, the concentrates will make up the larger portion than the isolates. If you're not sure what these micro filtered and ion exchanged terms mean, take a look at our protein processing guide, and learn about the different methods of making whey protein.

So quality wise, Econo Whey isn't a stand out in any way compared to other brands, but its very comparable to other brands. However, the main attraction of this product is its price.

I think a big plus which many users will enjoy is the fact that econo whey protein contains no Aspartame.

Econo Whey Protein - Taste?

The third major factor is taste - probably equally if not more important to some than previous two factors. Econo whey comes in quite a few flavors:Chocolate, vanilla, chocolate mint, banana, lemon, raspberry, and a few other flavors as well. So far, I've tried the chocolate, vanilla, lemonade, and banana flavors.

The standard chocolate and vanilla are still probably my favorites. The lemon and banana flavors were very nice tasting as well. The lemon actually tasted "lemony", and the banana actually tasted like bananas. The econo whey shakes are quite light tasting, and I find it really enjoyable.

Mixing is never a problem at all. Every flavor I've tried mixes easily in both milk or water with minimal shaking, and best of all, there's no clumping at all. Follow the links below to purchase Econo Whey online at great prices.
