I just have a quick question about the Bulk BCAA from Nutraplanet that either Dsade, Stryder, or another AM member could explain to me.
Is the bulk BCAA powder from Nutraplanet the same (amount per dose) as the Optimum's BCAA powder? I am aware that Nutra's is a 2:1:1 ratio and contains 400mg per teaspoon, but what I'm asking is does one teaspoon of Optimum Nutrition's BCAA powder equal the same amount of Nutraplanet's BCAA powder?
I had used Optimum Nutrition's in the past but switched over to Nutraplanets brand to support a board sponsor and because I know that Nutra's bulk line is great quality.
The reason I ask is because "one rounded teaspoon" of Optimum Nutrition's BCAA powder gives you 5000mg (5g) of BCAA. Nutraplanets gives 400mg per 1/4 teaspoon or 1600mg (1.6g) per 1 teaspoon. Now I understand that Optimum's is a "rounded teaspoon," which implies that it well over just a 1 teaspoon measurement. But even if you tripled Nutraplanet's BCAA, you would only get 4800mg (4.8g) of BCAA powder, and that would be in 3 teaspoons total?
...Am i missing something here, or is Nutraplanet's BCAA just a lower concentration than Optimum Nutritions? (I am not trying to bash Nutraplanet's bulk BCAA @ all. Many of my threads praise Nutraplanet and their bulk powder line, and I'm almost positive I'm just not realizing something here)
Thanks in advance
P.S.-One of the reasons I ask is because I am currently using Nutraplanet's bulk BCAA (obviously) as well as some other products I had ordered and trying out different combinations of pre-workout drinks. Once completed, I will post full reviews as always.
