Is There 25g of Protein in your Protein Powder? - Trusted Brands
Brands You Can Trust
At Shop4supplements we want to make sure our customers are getting the best supplements on the market, this is why we are moving forward and taking on the trusted, batch tested and honest brands like BPI SPORTS
who have used Chromadex Quality Verification, a third-party testing company who test the quality of a brands supplements. This ensures that whatever BPI SPORTS
claims on their products is true and not misleading customers.
Heres a little explanation of Chromadex and what it means:
"Any protein provider can randomly test their products to claim they meet specification, but testing only has real meaning if it is third-party verified and is done as part of an ongoing audit program," said James Grage
, co-founder of BPI
Sports in response to the announcement. "With the ChromaDex Quality Verified Seal program, consumers will no longer have to guess if they are getting a quality protein product or one that's been spiked with subpar ingredients. Our hope is that since BPI
Sports has obtained the ChromaDex seal, other companies will be compelled to use similar types of programs. Quality initiatives such as this will raise the bar for the entire industry and are great news for consumers."
, founder and CEO of ChromaDex commented, "Products bearing the ChromaDex® Quality Verified Seal will ensure that a quality program has been implemented by consumer product companies to verify that cGMP requirements are followed for the consumer products being manufactured. By adopting the ChromaDex® verification program, BPI
Sports has demonstrated boldness and leadership within the supplement industry, giving consumers a reason to feel confident about the quality and integrity of its products."
Unfortunatly there are brands out there who are saying their protein powders contain a certain amount of protein per serving but when tested these claims have been false. The proteins are being spiked with cheap fillers which they are passing off as protein.
Taken from Forbes.com article on lawsuits and protein powders
"third-party tests, attached to some of the lawsuits, show some companies also fill the tubs with far cheaper free form amino acids
like glycine, taurine or leucine as well as other substances like creatine monohydrate, and then portray them as grams of protein
on the products’ labels. Certain amino acids are considered the building blocks to protein but they are not protein by themselves, nor do they have the same benefits as complete proteins.These filler substances can cost less than $1 per pound,
allowing companies to undercut competition with lower prices and dupe price-sensitive customers in the process"
BPI Sports the Brand
stands for Be Powerful Incorporated
, founded in 2009 by James Grage. "What started as two people, a thousand square feet, and an IOU for a pocketful of cash has quickly become the fastest-growing and premier sports nutrition company on the planet. Our headquarters in South Florida now encompasses more than 53,000 square feet and it's growing. Adjacent to our office space is a complete commercial-size BPI
gym, which we built for our athletes and team members"(bodybuilding.com interview)
For 3 years BPI
Sports didn't sponsor anyone, but when they did come around to the idea of sponsorship they sure did it properly taking on one of the greats, 4x Mr Olympia Jay Cutler in 2012. It seems that slow and steady really does win the race with this company, BPI
have taken their time and each opportunity and business decision has been perfect. Sponsoring and building a strong relationship with a top athlete and role model to so many and now in their decision of being Chromadex Tested.They haven't given into pressure in the multi billion pound fitness industry, working hard with the consumers best interest taken into consideration is paying off and BPI
Sports is now one of the top and most respected brands on the market.
