Okay so there are many different supplements out today, and all have slightly different amounts. Some say "one level" scoop and others say "one heaping" scoop. Now my question is what exactly is a "heaping" scoop? I have weighed out different "heaping" scoops and all have come out differently. Especially my creatine, which says "one heaping teaspoon". Well my teaspoon is wide, and I've actually scooped out a "heaping scoop" and its weight was 12 grams. According to the label, that is almost 3 servings...
The real question is, are theses supplement companies telling you to take a "heaping" scoop so you waste some and need to buy more, forcing you to buy their product again? Or do they say "one heaping" scoop because some supplements settle and compact tight? For example Myofusion products come in a semi clear container. When comparing two flavors of their protein, I noticed one looked like it had more powder in it then the other. So I asked the store clerk to weigh each, and they both weighed the same. One possible explanation is the one settled, hence why some scoopers are all ways at the bottom (such a pain). However, some flavors differ in servings, but usually very small, say 1-5 servings.
Your probably thinking why doesn't this person weigh out the serving listed on the label and put it into a scoop and see what it looks like and approximate this each time taking a scoop for a shake. Well I did this, and once again, they range in different sizes. Also, the similar results occured when using a protein that says "one level" scoop. I am very curious to why this is? Because after each workout, you may not be getting the full 25grams or whatever your scoop says it should be, thus limiting you results.
