My broke ass hasn't bought a scale yet. Does anyone know how many grams there are in 1TBSP of EAAs?
I believe it's 5 grams per teaspoon. 4 teaspoons to a tablespoon. 1 tablespoon=20 grams. peace
That sounds a bit heavy...the EAA's are not very dense, so I was getting right at the 12.5 grams per rounded table spoon.
I previously used BN's BCAAs, and if I recall correctly, those came out to a little less than 5g per tbsp. I was guessing the EAAs would be similar.
I'll check to make sure...maybe it was 2 tablespoons...I'll post the results tomorrow morning.
very close to BCAA's if not exactly the same I believe.
the 12.5 grams is 2 heaping table spoons.
Cool, thanks. That is better than I expected
Would the EAA's be tasteless if I were to mix it in with say, Gatorade?
not completely, but the gatorade will take care of it!Originally Posted by natedogg
I find that if they are in there for a few hours they taste worse. On their own they are quite rancid. Crystal Light Red Grapefruit does a good job covering up the taste.Originally Posted by natedogg
The methoine(sp) in the mix is defiantly the culprit. It is by far the most horrendous thing I have encountered. Smells like a mix of rotten skunk and dirty feel.

Custom, for BCAA's is it the same measuring??? 12.5 grams 2 heaping table spoons
It will be a tad less (gram wise) because the luecine is just so fluffy, but yes that is pretty darn close.
Hey, how much would you say would be a safe amount to mix at one time? I was going to mix 30 grams of EAA in about 32 oz of Gatorade. Would 30 grams have too strong of a taste?
You'll be fine with 30g, but you might want to dilute the gatorade a bit.
Cool, thanks. BTW it's powdered gatorade so I can adjust how much or how little I need. How many EAA's have you been taking every day Beowulf?Originally Posted by Beowulf
