There you guys go. I'd like to thank smokinghawk. He sent me the Biotest sample a while back.

The next products in line to test are Isomatrix and NlargeII by prolab.

It doesn't sound any so far have really lied to much on the lable climas at all. They all look withiing say 96% of the addvertised contenct and it would very possibly be a settlying thing that leads to the contenct sperating into something slghtly off of the addvertised contenct.

Its too bad a test can't be done to determine the amounts of each type of proten that these products contain.

Supnut, that is exactly what I would like to see, for instance - how much soy protein isomatrix contains. I have heard of certain companies cutting their products with cheaper proteins as it still registers as protein when analyzed.

I tried pricing this type of work and it was not cheap AT ALL. If they used lower quality proteins, the % wouldn't be correct.

1Fast, I have even heard cutting products with glycine, which would register as pure protein, I think.

Will you have a section on your site where results are posted?

You can perhaps include a banner that says "a portion of all protein sales is used to determine if that product is actually protein".

They could use a cheaper form of whey protein and yes it is still whey its a cheaper grade. I want to know the 'grade' of protein in some of the less expensive (cheaper) ones, such as Optimum.

Optimum was checked a while back. They were a tad over claims (by .2g per serving). Quality won't be a problem with optimum. They make other people's stuff and stand to lose to much if they make a crappy product.

😆 Okay, close your eyes for a second, then open them pretending that you are a consumer who just happened upon Mike's site now seeing that statement. Thanks for the laugh. Too funny.

Can someone give me a brief breakdown on the differences betwen AOAC and HPLC?

1Fast, what does it cost per ingredient, per assay, and what kind of ingredients are more expensive to test for?

As far as Opti's cheap whey you might be able to determine an amount but I was under the impression that a lot of cheaper whey's were heat dried and that denatured the protein. I don't have any problems with soy as long as the over all quality is good. I try to avoid cheaper proteins because of faulty claims, ash and what not usually showing up in the protein. Cheers.
