Here’s a few questions that hopefully someone out there can answer, all relating to protein/protein powder. Some of them may be considered stupid, but none the less I am really interested in getting answers to all of them for I feel they are quite important. So, let’s begin
1)Aren’t there 20 essential amino acids? Why do on all the labels of protein powers (that I’ve seen) do they only list 19? Where’s the 20th?
2)What exactly is an isolate? What benefits do protein supplemets have that contain more or double?
3)Is the protein in meat any better than the protein in a tub?
4)Is the protein that I buy at the health food store in a bulk plastic bag, with no additives any better or worse than the more commercial powders?
5)Is there any evidence that sucralose or other artificial sweeteners cause cancer, or other biological malfunctioning?
