Do you use any of the following whey proteins?
This is something you need to know. It might cause you to change the brand of whey you buy from now on!
A recent study sought to find out the real BCAA content of 7 x popular whey protein products.
BCAAs are branched chain amino acids. They are Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (Leucine being the most important).
The brands of whey tested were:
- Muscle Milk
- GNC House Brand
- Syntha 6
- Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard
- Optimum Nutrition Hydrowhey
I’ve never tried or been interested in the first 5, but I’m disappointed to hear that Optimum Nutrition seems to have overstated their BCAA content on the packaging.
So let’s have a look at the result. The actual BCAA content as found in the study is seen in the left column and the company’s claimed BCAA content is displayed on the right.
That’s quite a difference, right?!
But the rest of the products failed miserably!

Why I trust them? They were the first UK brand to achieve ISO9001 production certification. On their site they state,
“We test every single raw material on entry into our factory and every finished product before it leaves by using our state of the art Near Infra-Red machines.”
So when a bag of protein states 90% protein for example, you can have peace of mind that there really is 90% protein in there. That’s why they state on their site that they are the “UK’s #1 Premium Whey Protein.”
ALSO…YOU CAN GET 10% OFF EVERYTHING FOREVER

Then input code: MUSCLEHACK. The code MHACK will also work 😀
That’s all you gotta do.
I hate seeing these kind of results. These companies play us for fools, since they know we can’t test the products for ourselves.
Thank God there are people out there that are willing to spend the time and money conducting indepent tests.
Be smart out there!
