In defense of protein drinks

24th June 2010

This blog entry attacks the recent Consumer Reports article on protein drinks as “hack science”. I’m with him when he says the random PhD who said 5-9 grams of protein per hour is totally unqualified but when he says the tests should be totally ignored, I start to lose him.

Why not use the tests to start buying protein powder with less crap in it? Although it wasn’t tested, my next purchase (well I just ordered it last night) is Perfect unflavored Isopure – is anyone surprised that the stuff with artificial ingredients and whatnot might contain bad crap? Hopefully Nature’s Best does not.
