Hi AMS, I was going on holiday so thought I would buy some BCAAs for intra workout and any other times I needed it.
Naturally I looked for the most cost effective to a point, price wise it was between this and RecoverPro by AI.
I went for Body Mortar as I have tried samples of it, the taste is nice, it mixes well and Royd kindly chased up problems with samples not being sent out by a UK distributor so it created some brand loyalty. I bought two tubs of different flavours.
The single product on the website I purchased from stated the ingredients were
"4:1:1 Growth Complex
So, I assumed this was the CF version and bought it, those were the only ingredients stated apart from Citric acid, flavours, colours and sweeteners.
When I got it I realised that 30g of each 45g serving are carbs and 15g are sugars. I can't see them listed anywhere in the ingredients list so have no idea what they are.
When I looked back on the website I realised that the nutritional information is there and carbs are listed, so it is my fault for not paying more attention. When buying a product and the only ingredients are amino acids, I didn't even think to look at the c:f and calorie content.
I emailed the company I purchased from and they kindly offered a refund. As I was leaving for my holiday the next morning I could not arrange one so I am working my way through the first tub now. If I had the time I would have got a refund and bought the CF option from another website or RecoverPro.
I don't know labelling laws in USA but is this legitimate? The carb content is 66%~ of the container yet the ingredients(s) aren't listed.
The distributor acted very quickly and it is partly my fault for not checking the nutritional information to realise the majority of the product isn't listed in the ingredients.
I am concerned and not very pleased. I don't want to take in 90g(?) of carbs for 30g of BCAAs and 7.5g of glutamine.
Is the carb content correct, if so then what are the ingredients listed? I am using the scoop and despite using 16.5 scoops of the product so far, I am barely a third into the tub. Something isn't making sense.
