MuscleTech apparently feels like it’s their turn to wear the crown.

Between their Essential and Performance Series, they’ve come out with just about every conceivable type of supplement in an ostensible effort to control every industry niche.

The latest example of this is the new MuscleTech Platinum 100% Beef Protein, a rarified type of protein powder that more companies are starting to experiment with.

Benefits of Beef

Any list recommending the best types of protein for building muscle always include beef. Just a 3 oz. serving of beef provides a good source of vitamins B12 and B6, as well as essential minerals such as zinc and selenium.[1]

What’s more, beef is a natural source of creatine and has a high biological protein value.

What to Expect From MuscleTech Platinum 100% Beef Protein

Typically, beef protein is derived from dehydrated and processed beef and transferred into hydrolyzed protein form.

The big knock on beef protein is that it could potentially be a form of gelatin or other lower quality protein source, but MuscleTech is preempting those aspersions with a large “No collagen or gelatin” printed on the front of the product container.

What’s more, you’re not going to have to worry about deciphering a protein blend here. According to the label this is a 100% hydrolyzed beef protein isolate, meaning you aren’t getting the fat, lactose, or other sugars that you’d find in a lot of other protein powders.

Each serving is a respectably low 110 calories per serving, with 0 g of fat, 24 g of protein, and 2 g of net carbs. Additionally, you get 3 g of creatine per serving to help boost strength and improve body composition.

So How Does Beef Protein Taste?

It might be easier said than done, but if you can find a way to disassociate the taste of beef from the word itself, this will taste like a regular protein powder to you.

As of right now Platinum 100% Beef Protein is only available in double dutch chocolate, and I would say the taste is on par with that of an average chocolate isolate powder.

While not necessarily bad-tasting, isolate protein powders lack the rich flavoring that comes from having more fat and lactose. Go into this knowing that the flavor is bland, and not going to be very sweet.

Price and Availability

Most online retailers are selling a 2 lb. container for around $25-27, and a 4 lb. anywhere between $45-48 a container. Breaking it down to cost per serving shows this turns out to be decently affordable protein.

The 2 lb. tub, for example, has about 30 servings per container, and breaks down to just under a $1 per serving.

Bulking Up With Platinum 100% Beef Protein

The nice thing about Platinum 100% Beef Protein is its versatility. The extra creatine will help with strength and lean mass gains during a bulking cycle, or lend itself to maintaining and preserving strength while cutting.

Because it’s also low in calories and high in protein, Platinum 100% Beef Protein fits nicely into any diet or meal plan.
