"Protein Spiking," or "Amino Spiking," has recently become a common deceptive practice throughout the sports supplements industry. In efforts to combat diminishing profit margins due to relentlessly rising protein prices, companies are slashing the amount of true, whole protein and replacing with cheap, free-form amino acids such as taurine, glycine, alanine or even arginine. They get away with this because they exploit a loophole whereby using these nitrogen rich amino acids, they fool the benchmark Kjeldahl methods for testing protein content. Functionally, this test relies on and measures nitrogen content to determine the amount of protein within a given sample; therefore, deceptively nitrogen-rich free form amino acids will not only register as whole protein gram for gram, but they register as far more protein than this allowing companies to use even LESS protein in their products. They mask these modifications by masquerading like they are adding extra amino acids, when in fact, they are substituting them for the whole protein you are paying for.
Consuming enough complete protein throughout the course of the day is an essential part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle. MyoFeed has been specifically formulated to provide an enhanced amino acid profile over many whole food sources and is an invaluable addition to your daily diet. For best results, spread your desired protein usage between several smaller meals throughout the day. SHAKER BOTTLE: Add your desired amount of protein to a shaker with 6-8 oz of water per MyoFeed serving and shake vigorously. Adjust your water usage to achieve your preferred sweetness level. If possible, always add MyoFeed into a shaker already filled with to ensure solubility.
