The following test on Arnold Iron Whey from MusclePharm has been requested by our site and is therefore an independend test.


On this product only a nitrogen analysis has been done to get an idea of the possible protein content. A protein content of 67.6% has been measured, on the label is stated 67%. But added amino acids are indicated on the label, and this gives a fictitious image of the protein content. We have found a site where a review on this product is. Also in this trial it has been confirmed that MusclePharm uses amino spiking.


Tested product

-Crude Protein: Unknown because of added amino acids.

On the label you can see the added amino acids. Glycine, Taurine, Leucine, Valine and Glutamine are added. We can therefore say with certainty that the protein content has been fictitious increased through 'Amino Spiking'.

On the report below he crude protein (ruw eiwit) content with a nitrogen factor of 6.38 for dairy products is the correct value for the nitrogen analysis.
