Can you look at the serving size on the back and see how much is in each serving? I asked my husband about it as he used to use protein in shakes all the time so he said you want to get one that's mainly protein rather than some of the ones that have a lot of additives like sugar, cholesterol etc. If it has cholesterol in it it tends to clump up and not taste good he says. He recommends that you go to a supplement shop like a GNC store or something and ask which ones are the best and why so you can learn about it more and compare the one you bought to the ones they sell.

Like people said, should say on the box how much protein is in 100 grams or per scoop, like any other food. I doubt that it's "100% protein", which is usually a marketing gimmick, splitting the proteins from the food source is costly, there is probably a few grams of complex carbs / fibre in the rice protein or something. The label should show you.

Something like this should be on the box:

By pure protein do you mean isolate?

Also there are tiny amounts of carbs/fats in it yeah. Even in isolate, but it's usually very little. And 100g of the powder won't get you 100g protein. Thinking off the top of my head you're probably going to need about 120g-130g of the powder to hit 100g protein. This is going from what whey I've seen, rice could be different (most likely you're going to need more).

But as said above check the package. If it's not on the package it will be on their website if you bought online (I buy online, my package has no values!)

Also as posted above, GNC is a good place to check. I haven't actually been inside their shops since I get all my stuff online, but they're likely to have some scoops you can use to weigh your stuff. If you need recommendations on what brands to buy just send me a PM or ask here, I'll be watching!

Well I had a look at the labael on the protein and it has 80grams of protein per 100grams of powder.

So i found a scoop that holds 20grams of powder and I worked it out I need 6 of theese scoops to get the 100grams of protein so I will put 3 scoops in one shake amd then the other 3 into the other shake please correct me if I'm wrong

Are you getting any other sources of protein right now? 100g of supplemental protein is a lot. The human body requires about 0.8g/kg of body mass per day, anything additional is a lot of extra strain on your kidneys to get rid of the excess.

Why aren't you using albumin or whey isolate protein then though, they're much more bioavailable than rice protein. Honestly I assumed you were a vegetarian after you said you chose rice protein, but if you're not I would get better protein than rice protein.

Don't forget whey protein is made from milk, so it might upset some peoples stuff. But yeah if it doesn't whey is the best.

Have you ever tried any other sources of protein that aren't meat? Things like lentils and quinoa? It's always worth trying to balance out your diet.

And to be fair, milk protein would be casein protein, whey is from the cheese process when they split it from the curd, and then whey isolates are once more ionised or filtered. It is from milk, but whey isolates have very little to do with casein protein from milk you can buy.
