Quality of content
Dymatize Elite 100% Whey 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.
Dymatize Elite 100% Whey scored 103 in our DIAAS analysis. This is without a doubt an excellent DIAAS score, but the best protein powder, however, achieves a higher score and thus offer protein of higher quality. The analysis we did on the contents of this product, showed that it is Histidine, which limits the DIAAS score. Dymatize Elite 100% Whey by Dymatize has declared that it contains 70% protein, 4.3% carbohydrate and 9% fat.
In this case the labelled protein concentration is below 70%, which indicates that sugar or fat has been added. This isn’t necessarily bad, compared to most other products, you will get a higher amount of fat and sugar with less protein. Dymatize Elite 100% Whey contains, what we consider, a normal amount of carbohydrates.
Should you choose Dymatize Elite 100% Whey? If your primary concern is the quality of the protein, then there are better alternatives for you on the market, but if you additionally value price and great taste, then the overall score will be a more fitting reference point for you.

The price score acounts for a third of the total score, making it an important review parameter. A product with excellent taste and quality can still have a mediocre total score if the price is excessive. The price of a kilo of Dymatize Elite 100% Whey in the UK is approximately 22 pounds.
