Churros & Dulce de Leche! MuscleTech Nitro-Tech Whey Gold Limited Time Flavors

MuscleTech Logo

Long-time readers of PricePlow will undoubtedly be familiar with MuscleTech. It’s a brand that prioritizes innovation, as is evident with their hugely popular use of the novel caffeine-alternative paraxanthine in EuphoriQ and Burn iQ.

Another element of MuscleTech’s prowess is in their ability to flavor – the Boogieman Punch flavor of EuphoriQ knocked it right out of the park. Today, we’re pumped to announce two new similarly incredible flavors of Nitro-Tech Whey 100% Gold, MuscleTech’s fantastic protein formula.

Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold: Churros & Dulce de Leche!

MuscleTech Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold Dulce de Leche & Churros

MuscleTech Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold has two new limited-edition Latin-inspired flavors: Churro and Dulce de Leche! A delicious twist – literally.

Nitro-Tech Whey Gold is a sturdy protein formula built with a blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, and whey peptides. We’ll dive into the details below.

What truly sets Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold apart, however, is all in the flavor system. It can be a challenge to flavor protein powders – no matter how hard you try, it’s quite difficult to get around that classic “whey” taste. Through the utilization of the above protein blend combined with world-class flavor systems and the right texture agents, MuscleTech’s managed to do a fantastic job with all of the flavors we’ve tried so far.

Cinnamon Treats and “Caramelized Milk”

The two new flavors being released – Churros and Dulce de Leche – are limited time only, so don’t miss out on your chance to enjoy the rich deliciousness. Churros is based on the classic fried, cinnamon-spiked Mexican treat, while Dulce de Leche is based on the dessert jam also known as “caramelized milk”. Both are tremendous recipes for a satisfying post-workout experience.

We’re going to dive into a little summary on how MuscleTech Nitro-Tech Whey Gold works, but first, let’s check the PricePlow for good MuscleTech deals, and check out our video review of the new flavors:

Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold Nutrition Facts & Macros

Macros vary by flavor, but both of these flavors are the same. Each 34 gram scoop of Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold contains the following macros:

MuscleTech Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Churros Label

  • Total Fat: 2g

    • Saturated Fat: 1.5g

  • Total Carbs: 3g

    • Total Sugars: 2g

  • Total Protein: 24g

All told, Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold is a fairly clean protein powder offering little in the way of carbs and fats.

Nitro-Tech Whey Gold Ingredients

  • Whey Protein Blend

    Whey protein is one of the best sources of protein due to its bioavailability. Extracted from cow’s milk, whey contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein.[1] In addition, whey is insulinogenic, making it incredibly effective for recovery following exercise.

    Research has established that whey supplementation – in addition to a well-rounded diet – can help further improve strength and body composition in both men and women.[2-5]

  • Whey Protein Concentrate

    MuscleTech Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold Churros

    Whey protein concentrate (WPC) is a form of whey protein that is standardized to anywhere from 34-80% pure protein by weight. While it is less pure than whey protein isolate (WPI) – which we’ll discuss below – it retains some additional constituents such as lactoglobulins, immunoglobulins, and lactoferrin.[6,7] All of these compounds are beneficial for immune system health, which is vital for proper growth to take place.

  • Whey Protein Isolate

    Whey protein isolate, as alluded to above, is standardized to at least 90% protein by weight.[8] The big benefit of WPI is that it makes it straightforward to calibrate your macros. As it is almost entirely pure protein, you can easily scale your intake up and down without adding too many additional grams of carbs and fat.

  • Whey Peptides

    Proteins, which are commonly referred to as polypeptides, are essentially chains of amino acids that your body requires for optimal repair and function. Whey peptides are similarly composed of conjoined amino acids extracted from whey, but they are smaller. This means that peptides can provide a more isolated, targeted approach to intake and optimizing bioavailability with better digestion.[9]

  • Additional Ingredients

    Depending on the flavor, Nitro-Tech 100% Whey Gold contains flavor (think cinnamon for Churros) and texture enhancers such as silicon dioxide, sucralose, cocoa, and more.

    Remember, MuscleTech manufactures internationally — they use approved facilities in each geography they’re in, so the flavors stay true to palatte and don’t have to get shipped all over the world!

    Heavy flavors after a workout

    Flavoring is as much an art as it is a science. What may work for one type of product may not work for another. For example, it’s difficult to make heavy, rich flavors work for a pre-workout, when you’re trying to get amped up. On the other hand, these types of dessert-like flavors work perfectly with the post-workout bliss.

    MuscleTech has certainly keyed into this idea with the two newest flavors of Nitro-Tech Whey Gold. Both Dulce de Leche and Churro flavored protein powders are perfect rejuvenating snacks following a tough workout.
