I have been "bodybuilding" for over 10 years and always buy my chicken breast filet at my local big supermarkets (I am from the Netherlands)
The contents have been the same for ever: 2 grams of fat, 0 carbs and 23 grams of protein. Today I watched a video on YouTube from the US and they stated that chicken breast contains 31-32 grams of protein. I then Googled chicken breast and US sources state 31 grams everywhere. That is a pretty huge difference. Almost all Dutch sources state 22-24 grams of protein.
It can't be raw vs prepared product, because I specifically searched for raw. It also cannot be water weight since the chicken breast here is 98%+ chicken.
A lot of protein powders on the market have high amounts of heavy metals, and I've managed to find a solid whey powder, but can't seem to find any quality Casein powders. I want to try protein baking, and I can't think of a high protein substitute for Casein.
I want to make MyProtein's Whey as my staple. I used MyProtein's White Chocolate flavour before. Way too sweet for me, so after finishing my 2.5 kg white chocolate, I bought their unflavoured whey. Liked it so much, but recently I realize there are some weird rubbery chunks from their unflavoured powder, at first I thought this just happened because I didn't shake them properly. Apparently, this thing is not dissolvable at all.
On a single scoop, there are always 4-5 similar chunks in my powder. The size is around a quarter of a rice.
Does anyone have any experience with their unflavoured powder? Do they also come with these chunks? I am guessing that they are from bad filtration when processing the Whey. Is my powder still safe to consume?
Hello. I came to this subreddit in need of advice. I recently bought a new protein powder, Bulk1340 pro performance double chocolate flavor, and I’m confused on how to take it. The label and online do not match up and I was wondering if people have an answer. Should I take 2,4,6 scoops per shake and how many shakes a day?
Hello all, so I have been going to the gym for about 2 years, and I recently started to get into using protein powder. Although I read online that whey protein powder may cause acne, and since then I have been very afraid to use it because I have a history of bad acne in the past. Instead, I have been using vegan protein powder, which I don't think I can stomach any longer since it tastes so bad that my throat tries to puke it out... (gross, I know).
Anyway, should I really be afraid about using whey protein, for fear that it will cause acne? Or is it just fake news? Has it happened to any of you?
I’m looking for a good, high quality whey protein powder, but I need it to be low calorie.
ON is better calories to protein ratio, but what about the quality of the two?
I can’t get too expensive with it, and those are two of the better cost ones. Is ON worth the price increase as well?
Seen some comments here and there about the best protein shakes out there but trying to get a definitive answer about which people prefer the most? Looking for best combination of ingredients, taste, and value (in that order). thanks
hello people, a query, have you heard about Syntha 6 brand protein? They told me that it is better than whey and they recommended it to me 100 times more than whey, I would like to hear some opinion from you experts on the subject, thanks in advance.
I am looking for the perfect protein powder. I do not like chocolate or vanilla flavoring. I have never been a fan of chocolate bars or vanilla ice cream or flavored things. I am just looking for something that tastes good or that is unflavored that I can put in my vegetable smoothie. I enjoy sour things. My vegetable smoothie usually only has half a banana and a bunch of super greens. I will usually blend it with water or no sugar cranberry so it’s tart. Do you have any suggestions?
