    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.

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

    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.
