## 25 tbsp. of dex?

I know in PWO you're supposed to take dextrose in 2:1 dex to protein. So if I'm taking 50 g of protein I need 100 g of dextrose, right? OK the dextrose I bought from the company NOW has 4 g per serving of 1 tbsp. So to get 100 g I need 25 tbsp?

Is this right?

Yup.........or 1/2 cup is 75 grams carbs.

~SC~

3. yeah, sounds right. the dex i have works out to be right about 2/3 of a cup for 100g's. sounds like a lot, but you get used to it. now, i can't hardly drink whey without it.

I could be wrong but, are you confusing tablespoons with teaspoons?

2/3 cup
10.4 tbsp

So, you guys are telling me that 2/3 of a cup would be 100 g of dextrose?

Also, I know I'm dumb but how many teaspoons = a tablespoon?

yes and 3. i had to adjust up to 100g. at first it was too sweet. i started with 1/3 cup and kept adding more each day till i was used to 2/3 cup. now it's one of the highlights of my day!

15. Dextrose is dextrose... They're all the same. 4 g per tsp.

16. my dex is made by Now Foods. it's 4g per serving which is 4g of carbs at 1.25tsp. the dex that Kent sells is 11g per serving, but it's only 10g of carbs (don't know what the other g is) see label here: http://kentnutrition.ihoststudio.com/dexfac.html the dex at true protein.com has 50g's in a 70cc scoop. http://trueprotein.com/store/comersu...p?idProduct=78 that means that 100g's is 28.4 tsp or 9.46tbsp. so i wouldn't say that all dex is created equal, but it's close enough that you could just do 10tbsp and be close enough IMO.

I use NOW dextrose as well. I was incorrect in my last post. The label on my NOW dext says: 1.25 tsp = 4g carbs

yes all dex IS created equal. Some just have filler that prevent caking and such. It is not enough to bother trying to compensate, as the weight of anti-caking agent is minimal!

alright, we're getty petty now. that's why i said it was close enough to use 10 tbsp for 100g. problem is that grams is a mass measurement and tbsp, tsp, and cups are volume measurements. that's what causes the discrepencies.

20. 25 TEASPOONS is about 100g, 25 TABLESPOONS is about 300 g, so 10 TBSP is about 120g

by the Now Food ratings, 100g's is 31.25tsp which is 10.4167tbsp. so 10tbsp is about 96g's of dextrose. again, so close that it's petty.
