Yeah, though for different reasons. If you have tried a ton of different supps you have scoopers everywhere. You lose them. They get swapped into different containers… Good meaning house members collect them in one place in the name of “tidyness”…
Ive given up. I work on the more is better when dealing with proteins, etc. Larger scoops with the bigger scoop.
well, I certainly don’t ‘swap’ the scoops, I always weigh them when I first open the bottle. I’m also looking for an exact amount of protein, not just the biggest scoop in my collection.
For example: I want 50 grams of protein in my post-workout shake. The protein I just bought says that each scoop is 30 grams with 21 grams of protein (not the best, I know).
So with these figures, I need to put two whole scoops and about a third of another scoop to get about 50 grams of whey. BUT, when I weighed the scoop, it weighs 9 grams, and the powder that fits in the scoop is only 21 grams.
SO, if I wasn’t so obsessive and just trusted the nutritional info, putting 2 1/3 scoops would only give me about 34.3 grams of protein in my shake, in effect depriving me of almost a THIRD of my protein after EVERY
WORKOUT that I would use this particular protein, not to mention the other times in the day that I may want to take it.
Not only in proteins have I seen this, but also in glutamines, creatines, and creatine mixes as well.
Hell, I just weighed some AA pills that I have, it says 4 is 6 grams, but they weigh 9!!!
And no, my scale is not broken.
I hope somebody else tries this and lets me know what they think
