How to read a label and spot the good guys, Marc Lobliner shows you what to look for


In case you missed it last week, Marc Lobliner posted a video covering the sensitive subject of amino spiking in protein powders. To sum the issue up, brands have been able to use amino acids and creatine instead of whole protein sources, to add towards the total amount of protein listed on their product’s label. As an example a company may have 25g of protein on their facts panel, of which 20g might be actual protein, and the remaining amount made up by aminos or creatine. All this is achievable without the need for it to be listed anywhere on the supplement’s label. Of course this isn’t something anyone would want to be lied to about, especially when it comes to a product most, if not all users rely on. To help everyone understand how they can avoid the trap, Lobliner originally listed a few steps for people to follow to make sure they weren’t being scammed. He has now released an entire video dedicated to the actual reading of a label, to help further educate those who want what they pay for. At the moment all we can do is spread awareness on the spiking drama, in hopes that we can weed out those companies who believe it is a good idea, and highlight the heroes.
