Beware. Amazon description & photos of labels show completely inaccurate ingredient list, doesn't show half what's in there now!
on 29 May 2016
I mysteriously developed heart problems last year when I went back to the gym & once against started using the O/N gold standard product to top up my protein levels in my diet. It was traced to the protein shakes. I couldn't understand this as I'd used it for a couple of years, two years previously, with no problems. I thought maybe it was something in the flavouring as I'd originally used the choc mint and when I went back it was the banana cream, and then the strawberry (they both did the same thing, awful heart palpitations, to the extent I had a week long ECG fitted under a heart consultant!)
Having narrowed down the cause to Sucralose (a process of trial and elimination, where something with NO protein but sucralose triggering it again) recently, I ordered the original flavour. Checked on Amazon and the photos clearly show it's JUST whey protein and a couple of other things, natural flavouring, no sucralose. Product description says nothing about Sucralose.
What turns up? Something with an ingredient list as long as my arm AGAIN - just like the banana cream and the strawberry was that both triggered heart problems. And in there is Sucralose! The one common thing in all the stuff I've tried that has cause the heart problem to show up.
And yet, it's being sold based on the very small ingredient list, which is COMPLETELY innaccurate.
Protein content has gone down per 100g - because of all the other things they've now added in to it.
Completely disgusted about this. It's being returned and I've highlighted the description and photos are COMPLETELY out of date.
What's happened, optimum nutrition? You used to be the go-to for minimal ingredients, not any more, it's full of the same junk as everyone else.
