Questionable Protein Drinks?

On May 30, 2010, in Protein, by Andrea

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Well.  This is a fun way to wake up.

Consumer Reports did a study on 15 protein drinks and found questionable “additives” in some of them.  Included is the full text of the article, along with a few bullet points.

I find this a bit curious because I DO drink 3-4 protein drinks a day.  While I don’t drink the ones that tested high, it does scare me a bit.  WHY do I drink so much?  Well, to put things in perspective, I still have problems with food somewhat and do better with liquid protein.  We went out yesterday and I ate food mostly.  And my pouch was all “stuck feeling” for most of the day.  So it clearly was not happy with food.  Go figure.

Keep in mind, though, that these additives are tested in extremely high doses in rats and even doses in humans may not matter.

So while it does make me curious?  I’m not about to go out and toss all of my protein, either.  I’ll wait.  It’s too soon, with too little research at this point.

Well.  I’ve been putting this review off for a very long time.  After reviewing the vanilla version, I just couldn’t make myself do the chocolate.  It sat in my box-o-samples that I purchase to try for some time.. but I dug it out and decided I’d be brave today.  I’m not sure why today was THE day, but, well, it was.  Maybe it’s because I have 3 canisters of Click in the house and a canister of Vanilla Syntha-6 that I can use as doctoring agents if I need to..

An initial sniff test makes me optimistic.. just like hot cocoa.  I swear.  So maybe?
