no one knows the exact amount of glutamine or any other amino acid(infact any micronutrient) in a food.

things that can effect it are

1) seasonal varations
2) the type of soil or the food the animal is fed
3) times of druaght, or lack of food give
4) for animals the amount of exercsie(eg leaness of the animal)
5) even if the above the same, two eg pigs would have slightly different levels in their muscles.
6) gender of the animal

for bb'ing purposes you can not get enough glutamine from whole foods it must be supplemented

If you're in calorie surplus you're dandy in a hat.

If you're cutting it may be beneficial during the latter stages.

The sheer amount you need to take to make it worth while rockets the cost in to 'Not worth it' territory for 99% of the population.

I agree with Chigs' Geordie colloquialisms.

what about the glutamine in some whey shakes, is that legit? ive heard conflicting opinions some saying that its actually not the same, and that you still need to take glutamine specific pills.

There is glutamine in whey, yes.

And most protein powders now include added glutamine anyway.

Don't focus too much of your efforts towards one thing, but rather focus on the situation on a whole. That is, focus less on 'Glutamine' and more on 'protein'.

People got HOOOUUUGE before without supping with glutamine... Unless your HOOOUUGE don't worry about it yet.

and probably more kcals for most of you as well.

you can eat lots of glutamine, but if you do not have enough kcals, and normal protien and even fat you will still not get optimal gians.
