I weigh everything pretty much already. I have a scale in my kitchen and a scale at my desk at work if you really wanna know how important I feel it is for me. If I add dextrose to a shake I weigh that 20g. I weigh my chicken, meat, vegetables, coconut oil, etc. I never just think "oh that looks about right". I can do that pretty well, but I'd like to be more precise.
In the end the better control I have over the long term will yield me better results.

Besides I'd rather be ignorant about it, instead of weighing it out and making myself crazy about it. Like they say, ignorance is bliss.

What flavors are you talking about?. Maybe they don't count the cookie pieces in the cookie lovers, and just the powder...Did you separate the cookie pieces first before weighing out the protein?.

considering i have an extremely tight supplement budget this is a HUGE problem. I didn't pull the trigger on some no name brand for 10lbs of flavoring or wasted protein in too big a scoop...
So the real question is, is it really 38g a serving or is it a rounded scoop a serving?
Either way it's annoying.
NP cust service.... can we get a definitive answer to this issue from the manufacturer please?

I hate to be a "conspiracy theorist" but it is almost like this is done on purpose.
It says to mix a rounded scoop into 14-16oz of liquid. That is A LOT of liquid for one serving of protein, even with a 38g serving size. Most are 4-8oz.
If you mix a weighed 38g into 14-16oz of liquid it is beyond bland, and super thin. A full rounded scoop will give you a much more "typical" shake. It is probably why people are complaining about how thick it is. They are probably mixing a scoop into an amount of liquid they normally use. 38g should probably be mixed in 6-8oz.

Fellas, even though we did not produce the protein, nor make the label claims, we do apologize for this discrepancy. But, if the issue is use 1/2 of a scoop, I'd say use 1/2 the scoop. I feel they possibly weighed out the protein, before the candy pieces or something, IDK. The owner of this place started/sold ABB to Optimum, he knows his stuff I'd say, but I do understand how this could throw off the calories/macros. So, maybe they need to go with 1/2 sized scoops then. I'll pass on the info, but there is NOTHING wrong with the protein. I'd just use 1/2, if that is your preference in the mean time. Thanks for your attention to this matter, as well as patience and support!

so is it still half a scoop in 14 oz water or half that as well?
I wondered the other day while drinking there was no way it was 170 cals, i was half full

If the worst problem/complaint is that the scoop is too big, well then, I'd say it must be pretty good protein. Simple solution, use 1/2 a scoop, or get extra muscle feeding goodness, the choice is yours.
I will however point this out to the manufacturer when I next speak with them.

Man it's great. I am not sure why people have ever complained about the taste (most say it's delicious!). A couple of complaints came in on the vanilla. Therefore, we popped one open and gave that flavor a whirl....one I had yet to try. I will say, while I can't vouch it's the best tasting I've ever had, it was very very good! I guess some people are more picky with protein than others, IDK. But, I will say this too, I have never seen ANY protein that EVERYONE liked. I have even heard people claim that Ultra Peptide 2.0 is gross....I laughed my a$$ off!!

So a 1/2 scoop is 25g protein and full scoop roughly 50?? Just curious as I saw it back on nutra planet and am interested
12-10-2012, 10:48 PM
There's a line in the scooper that is the 25g serving. A full scoop would probably closer to like a serving + a third. So maybe 32-35 ish grams of protein.
