Quality of content
Cyto Sport Muscle Milk contains a type of protein called whey protein concentrate. Whey protein concentrate is probably the best source of protein you can find. It has a great amino acid distribution, has a great taste, and is usually fairly affordable.
Cyto Sport Muscle Milk scored 142 in our DIAAS analysis. A score that high indicates a great amino acid composition. It means that the protein is great for either building muscle, retaining muscle during weight loss, or adding a high quality protein to your regular diet. The analysis we did on the contents of this product, showed that it is Threonine, which limits the DIAAS score. Cyto Sport Muscle Milk by Cyto Sport has declared that it contains 46% protein, 27% carbohydrate and 13% fat.
This product contains a low concentration of protein and actually has a composition more akin to a weight gainer than a protein powder. Because of that, we have reduced the quality score. If you are looking for protein supplementation without added calories from carbohydrates or fats, we recommend that you find a different protein powder. Furthermore, Cyto Sport Muscle Milk contains a high relative amount of carbohydrates, which means that compared to other products currently available on the market, you get less protein and more sugar. This is often done as a way of optimising the taste of a product, but if you are trying to minimise your daily intake of carbohydrates a bit, then there are more suitable options available for you.The product does, however, contain a relatively large amount of fat, which has probably been added by Cyto Sport.
All in all, this product received a score of 9.5 for the quality and the level of protein, which the product contains. The score is based on the DIAAS analysis, which produced a score of 142. That makes Cyto Sport Muscle Milk a sensible choice of protein powder, if you are looking for great protein quality.
Taste and mixability
We shipped blinded samples of the product to our review panel, so they could review the product in a blinded manner. Cyto Sport Muscle Milk got an average score of 4.9 out of 10.
A score this low means that the taste was unappealing to most of our review panel. This protein powder obviously does not suit most people’s taste buds and, therefore, will probably not suit yours either. There are plenty of better tasting protein powders available on the market, so if you care about taste, then consider opting for a different product.
The standard deviation was 2.5 across the review panelists, who rated this product. We do not consider this to be a high standard deviation. It does, however, tell us that there were people, within the panel, who had quite different opinions regarding the taste of Cyto Sport’s protein powder.
Pricing is obviously important to take into consideration too. The price of a kilo of Cyto Sport Muscle Milk in the UK is approximately 21 pounds. That means that you will pay 0.64 pounds for a 30 gram shake and 0.02 for each gram of protein.
This is, to be blunt, one of the most expensive products on the market. There is most likely better products that cost the same or similar products that cost less available on the market.
