FDA Warning for Muscle Milk
In 2011, the FDA sent a warning letter to Muscle Milk’s manufacturer stating that they are not allowed to call their product “healthy” because it contains a lot of fat, and several toxic chemicals including metals like mercury and lead. Horrible. They also said it was mislabeled as “milk”, because there is no actual milk in it. “We are gratified that the FDA has finally gotten off its duff and done something with respect to at least one product,” said Chris Galen who works for the National Milk Producers Federation.
Muscle Milk Uses Low Grade Sugar Substitutes
The sugar substitute found in Muscle Milk is called sucralose and acesulfame potassium. Just google them and you can research the side effects. It is all synthetic products – even the fiber inside it is synthetic. It comes from cellulose gum and carrageenan, which is horrible for your stomach. Really, really cheap chemical preservatives.
