Muscle Milk is Not Healthy – Warned by the FDA

Yes, Muscle Milk is bad for you. I used to drink tons of Muscle Milk in my early twenties because I thought it was healthy and would give me protein. Wrong. Muscle Milk is full of fat, no milk, and toxic chemicals. The amount of fake / synthetic protein you get from Muscle Milk can easily come from eggs, yogurt or actual milk itself. It is not worth all the toxic chemicals in Muscle Milk.

FDA Warning for Muscle Milk

In 2011, the FDA sent a warning letter to Muscle Milk’s manufacturer stating they were not allowed to call their product “healthy” because it contains a lot of fat and several toxic chemicals including metals like mercury and lead. How horrible is that?? They also said it was mislabeled as “milk”, because there was no actual milk in it. Chris Galen, a spokesman for the National Milk Producers Federation stated, “We are gratified that the FDA has finally gotten off its duff and done something with respect to at least one product.”

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, even the fibers inside! It comes from cellulose gum and carrageenan, which is horrible for your stomach. Would you want really, really cheap chemical preservatives?
