    Trying to squash a rumor


    Hey Gang. I need a little assistance.

    There is a rumor going around Halifax that Optimum Gold Standard was recently product tested and it came up that it was mostly soy.

    I figured that if it were true, it would have hit the boards. I did a search on here and on BB.com and didn't realy find anything. I'm pretty bad at search engines and I haven't been on the boards in a while, but I haven't seen anything.

    Distributor prices on Optimum have gone up quite a bit in the past while, forces several stores to stop selling it. I have a suspicion that one of the stores that used to sell Optimum started the rumor to try and switch over customers to another brand.

    If you know anything, please, help a brother out.

    Thanks,

    DB2000

    This is totally what I was thinking. The last brand I would expect to do this is ON. The problem is I know exactly where the rumor started, and I need to be sure before I call someone a liar.

    I think that's a load of rubbish, but I'd happily wait for someone to confirm this.

    I seriously doubt it. Like you said, it's just a rumor. ON could lose their azz for some type of fraud and/or false advertising. Also, I refuse to believe it's true because I've been using their protein for the last 3 years.

    Soy and me do not get along. I still don't have any troubles with ON.

    Haha, yeah Patrick can get like that, but it wasn't him. If it was him the boards would have exploded. I'm pretty sure it is a Halifax based supplement store owner who no longer carries Optimum and is trying to switch people over to a different brand that he does sell. Still very unethical.
