PDCAAS scores

On May 1, 2010, in Protein, by Andrea

PDCAAS scores I’ve figured for various products.  Kinda a place for future reference.  I don’t like to have to do things multiple times (shh.. this was my selling point for having the blog in the first place…)  Remember that PDCAAS is the current protein scoring method used by the World Health Organization.  It is graded with 1.0 being the highest score possible.  Whey protein isolate and egg white protein both score 1.0 and thus are considered gold standards (and complete proteins).

If you need a protein refresher, read up here.

Some are surprising.  Some, not so much.

Do not take any of this as reviews.  I’m not reviewing these, simply showing the PDCAAS scores.  That’s all. Period.  End of story.  Not telling you to take, not to take, anything beyond the score.
