Something ain't right, got to be 25 grams of carbs not 250 grams. 250 grams of carbs and 50 grams of protein = 300 grams. 454 grams is a pound, so your telling us the instructions tell you to use like 3/4 of a cup to mix in a glass of water, that should be fun. I think it would more like pudding than a liquid.

That's what the product advertises, though ... Serious Mass - $31.49 | Optimum Nutrition: True Strength

and since the first ingredient is maltodextrin, yes, it would be puddinglike.

And they also have the nerve to refer to it as no sugar added ...

But notice that whilst the nutritional values listed 'fess up to 250 grams of carbohydrate (84% of recommended daily intake *) in a serving of 334 grams, the "sugar" element of that is only 21 grams.

I think I said it before but.. Our marketing teams are great at telling the truth but not the whole truth and certainly not nothing but the truth.

Of course, maltodextrin isn't sugar

As the others have said, please re-cycle that container while it's still full!

* And I've learnt something new - we're supposed to scoff 300 grams of carbs each day? I thought 180 grams was excessive and said so to another poster here!

Actually, my daughter is in her first year of medical school and in her nutrition class they said that the carb standards have changed to 190 grams of carbs per day. Don't get excited because in the same lecture she said that the nutrition labels on what we eat haven't been updated since the late 60s and that they are trying to transition into a more Fact Based field based on research, science, and hard facts. So, nothing they say or believe is actually based on hard evidence. LOL!!!

Sorry to divert from the thread. Comic relief keeps me sane.

I looked it up and it is carb pudding to be sure. One would have to be doing some serious exercising to be able to handle that kind of carb load every day

But as a weight gain (i.e. fat gain) tool it's probably hard to beat. Muscle gain on the other hand?

Hefting that glass might be exercise.
