I know, you didn’t have a peep out of me last week
What was I doing?!
Well lots of top secret confidential CP tasks which I wouldn’t want to bore you with!
But I want to share my frustrating experience with a Graze product
Now I think Graze are great BUT…
They have fallen into the ‘phoney protein claim’ trap
Because while at Sainsburys in Solihull I saw a protein flapjack type product…
Great I thought, Graze is all good, and so I munched back on it
(to be fair it was about 2 mouthfuls as there wasn’t much)
So then when reviewing the nutrition content on the back my:
‘does this qualify to use the word protein in its name alarm’ went off
While many personal trainers are happy to recommend anything with the P word in the name, I discovered…
With a mere 8 grams of protein, it meant I would need THREE PACKS to get a genuine protein serving
For one which would help quash the chocy urges
But ironically it wouldn’t, as I would then be also gobbling down 36 grams of sugar (half of what I have a day easy!)
Equivalent to Shandy Bass claiming it’s a beer…
On par with a Rivitta branding itself as a ‘mass gainer’
Stevie Wonder claiming he makes house music
The lesson for you
Anything which claims to be healthy, protein, organic, vegan, healthier than air, can often be TOO GOOD TO TRUE…check yourself before you wreck yourself!
