    Individually listed amino acids including creatine. Just stick to quality brands and you're fine.
    Supplement a good diet: don't diet on supplements.

    What do you specifically mean by "watch out for?" Amino spiking has been an issue in the past, but as of now if you buy from a reputable company that's no longer an issue (we think).

    Some contain Acesulfame Potassium (Acesulfame K) a synthetic sweetener. I personally know of one individual who had severe headaches from it. Never bothered me. I guess it's like MSG, some people have reactions while others don't.

    Btw, not liking those state of California cancer warnings on some I had. Knowing the country of Cali it's probably overreaction.

    It is, almost anything I buy has that warning, even my TV remote has it, same with a cup I bought... it's more of a 'cover your ass' label than anything.

    Nothing specific makes one better than others you just want to be sure the company is reputable so you can trust the label to be correct.

    Don't overpay, especially if you are just starting into supplementing with protein now there is no need to pay a higher cost for things like isolates, strait caseins, gainers, etc.
    Find yourself a quality blend or whey product from a company with a good track record and you are set!

    If your goal here is to buy a protein product to get protein into your diet easily and affordably, when comparing options I would suggest looking at the total grams of protein in the container vs. the cost and compare between brands that way.

    If you narrow it down to a few I would look into reviews to see which tends to mix and taste best.

    It's easier to just put that on the label. IMO every company should if they want to be compliant. The Prop 65 list is absurd. Basically an encyclopedia.

    I've bought a steel hatchet that has the prop 65 warning on it.
