I am not sure but I use my laptop to purchase it showed $122.78 :)
How do you even know you're getting protein with this powder? Couldn't they just add in anything?
Those tests are worthless. They make no mention of the GMO soy and harmful artificial sweeteners and food dyes.
He asked how you know you are getting protein. These answer that question. Not sure how that is 'worthless', unless you are bad at comprehension but great at pushing some weird conspiracy barrow.
@jjcf: Fair point mate. I never was that great at comprehension at school, haha. I just figure if people are taking protein powder, they most likely go to the gym to get fit, strong, look good, be healthy, etc. So why would you want to risk your health by taking heaps of artificial ingredients. It just doesn't make sense to me. I suspect that many people believe that if a substance has been approved by the FDA (or whatever body) then it must be fine, but the truth is a lot of these chemicals have not been tested thoroughly and we do not have long enough test data to know the long term effects.
Thanks. That test was 4 years ago and says there's a possibility they may be amino spiking to boost results. Businesses are greedy, and wouldn't be surprised if they're dropping quality to improve profits. I've bought my fair share of tubs of protein, and it just occurred to me that I really have no idea what's going in to each tub.
I've tried many different brands over the years. Most of them use soy lecithin as a mixing agent which I'm not particularly fond of (although it is hard to avoid these days as it seems to be in everything). I also can't stand flavoured protein powders. They all use way too much artificial sweetener and I find the flavours quite sickening (and I can't tolerate the chemical aftertaste of sucralose).
Professional Whey is my go-to brand. Their Australian WPC is the cleanest protein powder I have found:
@aldroid: Awesome mate thanks for the recommendation. Having a good look
@aldroid: Is this some elaborate ploy to market another brand of protein powder?
@Rosicius: Haha, not at all. I have no affiliation with Professional Whey whatsoever. I just like their products and their ethics. And I like to make people aware that there are healthier alternatives to some of the crap that's pushed so frequently in this community.
@aldroid: Except soy lecithin supposedly makes your loads bigger 💁♂️
They do add a lot of junk. Added ingredients include soy lecithin, Sucralose and Acesulfame-K (artificial sweeteners) and FD&C yellow #5 (which is now banned in Austria and Norway and requires a warning label in the EU).
Do you know why they banned it? Asking cause I have a bag of this somewhere at home.
Lots of into on the web. But basically the three dyes (Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6) have been found to be contaminated with benzidine or other carcinogens. ie cancer causing.
@aldroid: In such minute quantities, nobody's liable to get cancer from artificial colours.
Most manufacturers have limited the amount of free benzidine within their products, without the need to utilise different food dyes.
For claims unrelated to benzidine, such as for the "risks" of red 40, the study which concluded the dye shrank the latency period of tumour development, used such absurd quantities that it would be nigh impossible to naturally consume equivalent quantities ("7,300 and 8,300 mg/kg/day" for 2 years straight, vs the 30mg per serving found in the most "offending" of products, which is easily accommodated by the conservative 7mg/kg/day ADI).
I'd much rather consume those artificial dyes, when they're properly regulated/not-contaminated, than the scale insects used for E120/carmine/carminic-acid/cochineal, found in Allen's lollies, Tim-Tams, etc, all thanks to anti-synthetic hysteria. Not to mention that some are reporting allergic reactions to carmine, now.
@ProfessorBargain: Thanks. I just avoid it all. There are cleaner, healthier options available so I choose them. Curious to hear your take on artificial sweeteners, specifically Aspartame, Sucralose and Acesulfame-K.
