Was just wondering why Nitrean has 24g of protein per serving? It seems to me most other protein drinks have upwards of 40g of protein for serving. I know this is not an issue since I could just have 2 scoops of Nitrean but I couldn't help but wonder why the serving size isn't 2 scoops instead of 1. Thanks in advance.

Because not everyone needs or wants 40g in a single serving.

None of the proteins I've used ever exceeded 25g per serving.

Because 24g of good quality protein > 40g of garbage (not to mention most of these are 3+ scoops per serving)

Most proteins I've tried range from 21-29 g of protein, anything higher is normally a gainer/ MRP.

What's the difference? The powders with 40+ grams of protein per serving are more than one scoop anyways (or have a larger scooper). If you want more protein, just take 2 scoops of Nitrean.

I personally have never seen a protein powder exceed 30 grams. Typically they tend to be between 20 grams and 25 grams.

Meal replacements and weight gainers, sure. Opticen for example is 40 grams per serving and Maximus is 62 grams per serving.

It's just the serving size, look at the total mass of what you are scooping, if it has 40g of protein it's probably about 60g or more of powder.

As already stated, it is all about serving size. 24g per 30g serving of just protein is about tapped out in terms of what can be done. There is no powder which is 100% protein by weight. That is not possible. The fact that most abundant form of protein in Nitrean is whey isolate is why its protein per gram is so high.

yeah...those ones that pack a lot of protein in each serving are making you scoop twice ;)

its just a marketing trick.

ALN has very good protein: powder ratio...its basically ALL protein isolate (besides some little bit of flavoring agent).

one of my primary reasons for loving ALN is because they dont EVER try to pull any marketing crap on you. They are straight up with their advertising...no BS. Good stuff.
