A copy of the original certificate is on file at Reflex Nutrition. All products tested were bought from suppliers throughout the U.K, all seals were unbroken until testing at the lab, and each product was tested 4 times to exclude any error.

PS. I cannot guarantee that these lab test results are real because I havent seen the lab documents. Futhermore, Reflex Nutrition also sells whey protein-containing products.

The flavour tested in each case was chocolate btw, which I seem to remember people were unhappy about because chocolate usually has a slightly lower protein percentage than other flavours which may have skewed the results slightly. Even accounting for this however, most of the results are well below the manufacturers claims.
I believe (and please correct me if I'm wrong) that in the US manufacturers are allowed a 10% leeway and therefore many use this to alter nutritional data to their advantage? This may explain the variation to some extent.

Neither Reflex Nutrition did produce any evidence, nor did they back up their Whey Protein with any kind genuine info getting upto 80% mark!".....Enjoying my life to fullest extent possible; you should too"
Hundreds of whey protein products reviewed.....the process is on!

Also, at the time the original report was made I think they claimed 78% on the label, not 80%.

FYI...to the other poster, you can not round up or have a 10% margin of error in the US, you can only round up to the nearest whole number i.e. 23.51g of protein per 30g serving becomes 24g. This is why is looks LESS per 100g as is law in the UK/EU....CR-Technologies Advisory Board Member
