    I've gotten tons of people asling what exactly is the "protein spiking" issue... For anyone looking for a quick def of protein spiking, I just stole this off the internet:


    Nitrogen is used as a measuring factor because protein is made up of different amino acids that are strung together in a chain, and every amino acid contains nitrogenthus explaining how nitrogen can be used to determine the amount of protein in a product.

    However, the issue at hand is that instead of using complete proteins in their product (such as whey, casein and egg), manufacturers are adding extra amino acids such as taurine, glycine, glutamine, and creatine to protein powders. So whats so bad about these extra fellas joining the party? First, let me clarify that amino acidswhen taken as a supplementcan be beneficial for an athlete. Creatine, for example, has been shown to enhance recovery, boost brain function, and increase muscle strength. In fact, taurine and glycine are already found in proteinthe problem is that theyre not found in very high quantities. Complete proteins, on the other hand, are made up of nine different amino acids that the body cant produce on its own, and therefore have a high protein counthence the name. Complete proteins include foods like meat, fish, poultry, eggs and milk (where casein and whey come from). So it stands to reason that when we grab our post-WOD shake, we want something that has a high content of protein to help our muscles rebuild and recover, which is why complete proteins are so valuable. Most importantly though, if youre paying for 25g of protein per scoop, then you should be getting 25g of protein per scoop.

    Because complete proteins are so valuable, theyre expensive to add to supplements. So, to cut production costs, certain manufactures are spiking their protein supplements by adding in extra amino acids (like taurine, etc) because they are A: far cheaper to add than complete proteins and B: boost the nitrogen content of the powderthus giving the false impression that the product contains more protein than it really does. So when its tested (the powder) for protein content it still hits that 20-30g rangeeven though the added aminos are NOT considered to be part of the true protein content of the product. And because complete proteins are expensive to add, these particular supplement companies are making a killing through the nitrogen spiking process. So when you spend your money on a 20-30g protein shake, you might only be getting 10-15g. Not very good bang for your buck.

    How is this legal?
    Despite the recent lawsuit against Body Fortress, current FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) guidelines contain logical loopholes that supplement companies can exploit. As Price Plow (a supplement news blog) explains, the FDA doesnt count pure amino acid products as protein (if you grab a tub of pure aminos youll see that the protein count is zero), but nothing is specifically stated regarding protein that includes extra amino acids.
    To see this, find the FDAs Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Part 101 (Food Labeling), section 101.36 (Nutrition labeling of dietary supplements), which specifically talks about supplement labeling:

    Good information here.. Is there a way to tell or test the protein your taking?

    no fillers for real?

    im aware of the chromadex seal, but sry to say i have my doubts. in malaysia, i used to get nitrotech & myofusion advance for rm170 each (rm176 after 1mdb scandal & goods and services tax). both products are the cheapest available as far as i've known. nutrabolics & optimum gold standard are more expensive, costing between rm190+ to rm200+. after i discovered this amino spiking news, i did some research & the chromadex news popped up, i contacted musclemania store yesterday & was told the bpi whey hd cost rm169 only. ok point is, if this bpi stuff is so good & for real, how is it possible to cost lesser than the inferior, & the price gap between whey hd and nutrabolic as well as optimum gold is like rm20-rm40. is this bpi stuff for real or does this mean nutrabolic & optimum have been ripping off people too? i though the cost for raw materials are not cheap. but then again, i dont mind that its cheap & real cuz im just a college student, & living in malaysia is kinda tough considering that im a big eater. gotta take whey after meals to make up for the expensive chicken, fish etc.
