  • Protein powder measurements

    Hi, my jar of protein powder says one serving is a "rounded scoop" or 32 grams. I want something more precise - does anyone know how many grams are in one even tablespoon?

    It didn't come with a plastic scoop thing?

    What are you worried about, 31.6 grams versus 33.7? Why?

    SWPL, precise measurement of whey protein.

      different powders are different anyway.
      Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

        If you can forget powders and eat real protein. If you find its difficult to eat, slowly build your portion size up.

          Grams is weight. Tablespoons is volume. <-----bad grammar.

            figure out how many tablespoons go into a scoop and divide?

              None of this was helpful.. it didn't come with a scoop. Tablespoon measurements are too variable and I supplement with protein powder for the same reason many others do: to make sure I get plenty of protein when I don't feel like cooking a steak for breakfast every day.

              But I don't want to overdo it either because I don't know what "a heaping scoop" is! Does ANYone have any experience in measuring protein powders?!

                THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT! There is NO standard scoop size. Different companies, different scoops. Different types of supplements from the same company may have different concentrations and different scoops.

                It *might* help is you say what brand and what type (specific NAME) of the supplement.

                  It did come with a scoop you just haven't found it yet. Guaranteed.

                  Find the scoop and fill it. It might not be exact but it will be close enough that it will make no real world difference. If you are worried about it further get a food scale.

                          ...can't you weigh the amount that fits in your tablespoon?

                          Over here, a tablespoon is 1 oz-ish which is 25g-ish-ish. But yeah, a weight/volume comparison doesn't really work.

                              The answers are not helpful because the question is actually impossible to answer.

                              Different substances have different weights (masses).

                              So if you had a teaspoon of feathers, it would weigh under one gram. If you had a teaspoon of gold, it would probably be more than 50 grams.
