yeah unless I missed it they don't have a company forum spot, and NP sellsand their whey in 10lb units, so I'm kinda surprised.

BCAA's have less than one calorie per gram so they are not required to list it on the package. But it is very close to one calorie per gram. So if your adding it into your daily totals, you can count it as one calorie per gram of BCAA.

Ah, that's good to know. I'm not counting cals THAT closely, but still good to know.

It depends on the postage class. The Post Office uses splenda to make no-calorie glue as an incentive to use the more expensive first class postage. Second class postage stamps use sugar, and therefor have more calories.

I've heard that BCAA's are the same, calorically as protein and carbohydrates. 4 calories/ gram. I have also heard some very passionate arguements against this, so let's not debate it because honestly it doesn't matter. Find any fat person and ask them if BCAAs are what caused the problem.
Here, I'll just tell you-- no, BCAAs are not what caused the problem.

Im fairly certain that its less than one calorie per gram. If it was the same as protein, at 4 calories per gram supp companies would be required to have the caloric value on the label. Since its less than one calorie per gram they dont have to, because by definition it would be calorie free. Same as when a product is labeled as fat free, it does have some fat sometimes, its just less than 1 gram per serving, so they are allowed to call it fat free.
