Protein With Cheap Fillers...

Hey all,

You’ve probably seen the articles here that reference supplement companies replacing some of the protein in their formulas with cheap dextrose. Which companies are these? PM me if you know or think you know who the heck Biotest is talking about regarding this.

lol. good luck getting an accurate answer. please post the responses here i would love to see them too

Do you mean companies that use dextrose in place of protein, and don’t list dextrose on their ingredients?

Or just which companies use dextrose as a sugar, and have it listed on their ingredients?

Obviously the seconds are easy to find…just read the label.

Companies that fit in the first group…no idea.

That’s the claim Biotest makes - that there are companies that replace protein with dextrose and don’t disclose it on the label. I was just wondering if it’s some common knowledge thing.
