When protein sits in liquid for an extended period of time the amino acids can become unbound and cause a breakdown of the proteins rendering the solution biochemically useless.

Never been a big fan of them. For some reason they all give me acid reflux. I keep a tub of ON Whey in my car for use in a pinch. I don't know much about the absorption rates.

I'm also sceptical of these products. If you don't want to keep whey around your car/workplace/locker, consider making your own protein bars (or buying them, even though they're overpriced)

I've tried them all. I've always thought as though they've never done anything for me until I tried Inner Armour's Nitro Peak 50g. I just got back from afghanistan and that was the only protein I could get my hands on and I made tremendous improvements in strength and size. But goatfishtwo I think is right. I'm not sure how long protein can be stable in a liquid environment. Whenever I've taken them I just subtract 25% of there protein and use that amount as the actual amount. There's no science in that, just my own thing. I'll ask my girl, shes has a double-major in biology and chemistry.

Goatfishtwo answered your question but I haves used the same liquid protein as you have, I don't remember it having good leucine, isoleucine, or valine ratios. I could be completely wrong though.

Made mostly of collagen protein. The guy at gnc was right stay away from them.

When protein sits in liquid for an extended period of time the amino acids can become unbound and cause a breakdown of the proteins rendering the solution biochemically useless.
If the solution contains the proper amount of filler or carrier proteins (e.g. lactoalbumin bovine albumin etc), then the shelf life of amino acid activity can be increased from about a month to a year, depending on formulation.

That's actually a pretty good rule of thumb when dealing with prepackaged protein drinks. Most companies label carrier proteins in their overall totals anyways.

Every single one of these protein shots I have ever tried had a taste that would make you rethink your life.

I think the one i tried was a steak protein or something. I thought "oh that's convenient, not a bad idea. When I get in a pinch I can just slam one of these." Well after tasting one I almost threw up and threw the rest of them away.

Exactly, a recent article talked about this and how they are poor sources with very low bioavailability.

If only they all could taste like Crush orange soda.
