ng. The organization, which is comprised of dietary supplement manufacturers, defines protein as “a chain of amino acids connected by peptide bonds” and states that protein calculations should only be based on this definition. “Non-protein nitrogen-containing substances” should not be included, AHPA indicated.
According to the lawsuit, whey protein is a complete protein source that contains all of the essential amino acids needed to build protein-based compounds, such as muscle tissue, skin, fingernails, hair, and enzymes. The lawsuit states that amino acids, although the building blocks of protein, do not offer these same benefits.
Body Fortress’ label makes misleading claims about its protein content, the lawsuit alleges. The product labeling claims to have 30 grams of protein per serving, but this number allegedly also includes free form amino acids, including Glycine, Threonline, L-Glutamine, Leucine, Valine, and Isoleucine; the non-protein amino acid, Taurine; and the non-amino acid compound, Creatine Monohydrate. According to the lawsuit, testing reveals that the actual content per serving of whey protein is 21.5 grams once the “protein-spiking” agents are removed.
Parker Waichman LLP continues to offer free lawsuit consultations to consumers who believe they have been subject to protein spiking. If you or someone you know purchased a protein supplement that may have been spiked with free form amino acids and other non-protein ingredients, please visit the firm's protein spiking page at yourlawyer.com.
