Hey At Large fellas.

Do you think it's safe for me to be taking in 100g, or, half of my protein intake from Nitrean on a regular basis?

It's really convenient, low calorie, pretty cheap, but, is it healthy?

I am supplementing with multi vitamins.

Also, i've heard the body can only absorb so much protein per hour. Do you think it would be silly to have more than 1 scoop per drink?

If your daily protein needs require alot to come from powder so be it, as long as you are hitting your caloric and macro goals for each day you will be fine. Currently 90% of my protien comes from powders and there is no difference compared to when it was way less. Alot of people just prefer to eat their food.

There is no problem with what you are proposing as long as you have a healthy diet otherwise.

No. . . you wont. And dont post rediculous BS unless you at least to try to back it up. Which you will do poorly and then be flamed. And on goes the cycle of people who talk out of their ass.

Lmao, you kill me smalls. But agreed, 100grams should be fine, as long as the rest of your diet is in check.

If you go by BV whey protein approaches 100. I'm pretty sure the only way to beat whey protein is by getting all your protein from eggs, which is 100.

Of course BV isn't the end all of protein quality, but it does give a good idea of how much it is utilized.

If im not mistaken egg protein is 100%BV and whey concentrate is 104%BV giving it a better BV however the slower absorbtion off egg protein probably makes it higher quality to the body.

"If im not mistaken egg protein is 100%BV and whey concentrate is 104%BV giving it a better BV however the slower absorbtion off egg protein probably makes it higher quality to the body."

This would assume one can absorb 104% of the protein one consumes. BV is the percentage of protein a human can absorb from the food they are eating. It is not possible to have a BV over 100 because you can't absorb more protein than you eat. This would violate the law of conservation of mass energy.

I have the folliwing protein from supplements.

1 x Opticen - 52g
3 x Nitrean (post workout) 72g

Thats 124g real protein.

I have that on top again through real foods such as chicken, tuna, eggs etc.

To my understanding, originally the scale was based upon the egg however later whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate were found to absorb more fully into the body, however the scale was left unchanged. My mistake for using percentages because I don't think the numbers are an indication of how much percentage wise is absorbed.

Whey Isolates are in about the 130 range as far as BV is concerned.

"In theory, a biological value of 100 is maximal. The BV for whey is often listed at 104 because the extra 4 percent represent a margin of error in the calculation."

According to this link 100 is maximal and it provides an explanation for the over 100 BV ratings given.
