how much do you use in a typical protein shake. i had been using 1 tablespoon, but i saw a post where someone said 1 scoop dextrose to 1 scoop nitrean.....i tried that this morning and i think it was way to much dextrose.......seems to be aggrevating my stomach some. thanks

I think it's time you invested in a food scale.

I asked this question not too long ago and the general consensus at the time was that ideally, the ratio of protein:glucose(dextrose) should be 1:3.

In other words, for one scoop of protein, use three scoops of dextrose. My protein (VP2) is 28g, so I need roughly 85g glucose to go with it.

I myself have been using 1:2 ratio since it's just too damn sweet at 1:3 :D
