Ok so I was making my protein muffins as usual but I decided to go with a different flavor. So I start mixing up the batter with 3scoops Metabolic Drive, add in some fiber one, ect. and I start baking them.
Then I read the nutrition label and like the blueberry flavor each muffin has 3grams of fat, but with this flavor 1 gram is trans fat!
So my question is just how bad is this stuff? Is it worth throwing out 11muffins that have perfectly good Metabolic Drive in them? I didn't use all of the mix so my guess would be that I have 10grams of trans fat total in the muffins. I was planning on giving about 1/2 of them away at the office.
The diet is pretty much dialed in, although that's not too hard as I am in a bulk right now haha. Always nice when you get to eat carbs again!
I'm just kinda pissed that 1) I didn't think to look at the label at the store and 2) that there is trans fat in the apple muffins when there isn't any in the blueberry. haha I guess that's what I get for mixing things up!
I know it's not the fruit; it's listed in the ingredients as partially hydrogenated oil, and its 3grams total fat in the mix, 2grams unsaturated and 1 gram Trans fat.
No clue if the MD breaks down during baking, but I figure some extra protein can't hurt. To make them I add in the MD, egg whites, fiber one, and some flax seeds with the idea of making them healthier. I don't make them that much, just every now and then.
Any protein you eat gets broken down to ammino acids in your GI track anyway, so who gives a fuck if the protein structure degenerates during cooking? This "heat will denature the protein and that's bad" shit is just retarded. If anything heating makes it easier for your body to use.
