    One Scoop Of Whey?

    This question might sound stupid, I dont know but anyways, I recently bought the 100% whey protein and it says 1 serving equals one scoop which equals 29.5 or something like grams. Well one full scoop (meaning the whey protein dust filled all the way to the top) with the little scooper thingy is I think in my opinion much more than 29 grams more like double? So how much would an actual serving be???

    whey is quite light also so 30 grams of it will have a larger volume than say 30 grams of sugar

    Most scoops of concentrate are normally 27-30g, standardized for 20-24g protein (+/-)

    bulking and whey are irrelevant????? whey gives protein which you need to build and repair muscles........bulk means you gain weight from more calorie intake......am i right? I can graduate anytime soon.

    Read the frickin' label.
    A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.

    "Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him."

    1 serving(per the label) is a heaping scoop ~ 29.4g
    1 scoop is less than that, probably around 23 or 24g (net wgt, not protein)

    If your are tring to bulk with ON Whey, try consuming a 5 lb contain every week, and mix it with whole milk. Maybe, just maybe you consume enough calories for bulking.
    If you can't do that, then stick with using it to build and repair, and seek out a good bulking diet.

    really??

    now it all makes sense because one guy told me his 10lbs ON 100% whey lasted him 6 months.

    why the hell don't they just give a bigger scoop to make 29.5g one full(fill to the top) scoop??

    Yes, on the scooper it says something like 70 CC on it, meaning that it holds 70 Cubic centimteres of pure water, or a little over 2 OZ of water(if ur american) 1 cubic centimeter of water weighs exactly 1 gram.

    Since thatscoop holds around 2 1/3 OZ of water and water is a lot heavier than WHEY it means u are right, the volume is over 29 CC, it's 70, but mass wize is different.


    I did a calculation on it and found that WHEY is 1/3 as dense as water so scoopers which are 90CC like Prolab are 1 oz.


    you are getting maybe 23-24 grams of whey, per normal scoop with that.

    I believe a 5lb tub of ON has a volume around 8000 CC(8 liters, 2 1/3 gallons) and there is 80 oz of whey in it.



    So 90-100 CC equals around 1oz(30 grams) of whey, and 70 CC is how large the ON scooper is. 1/3 of 70 equals 23.33 grams of whey.

    Though since whey settles and they don't fill the container up all the way, the only way to truly test the density of whey is to to a density displacement test with distilled water(9th grade science people).

    Yes that makes sense, that 10lb of Whey he has has a volume of around 16 000 CC, and the scooper they give you is 70CC, so if he had 1 scoop times 6 months, that would require 180 scoops, even though their is only 160 OZ of whey there. so they definately give u less per scoop.

    I don't have a scale or water beakers to figure this out, just reading the CC labels and Volume size of the Tubs they give to figure this out.
