    Protein Scooper for Dextrose?

    I have been using four scoopersful of dextrose from my All the Whey protein. I figure this to be about 112g. Does that sound right? Mark

    just use the scoop they gave you with the dextrose...and see how many scoops it takes to fill up your protein scoop....

    So you're saying that the 28g (1 oz) scoop is 48g of carbohydrate? Crap. I've been over doing it then. Mark

    I found this on the website of the Dextrose I use. www.barryfarm.com

    NutritionFacts
    1 cup
    Amount per serving
    Calories 1060
    Sodium 224mg 9%
    Total
    Carbohydrate 265.1g 88%

    If I calculated correctly each TBSP has about 16g of carbs. If I wanted 50g of carb that would only be 3 TBSP. That doesn't sound like enough. Aaargh! Mark.

    dextrose serving of 4 carbs is 1.25 tsp which turns out to be about 48gcarbs in 1 protein scoop.

    I ordered a 50lb of dextrose from www.honeyvillegrain.com and it came in a brown bag with no label. I e-mailed the company asking for a label and he said he had no idea how to help me. Anyone bought from them before? Will the measurements be the same for all dextrose?

    due to its structure/nature fructose is metabolize in liver and does not do much for the expediant transportation of nutrients to the RAPED muscles.

    My protien scoop is 1/3 of a cup. If yours is the same this would mean that you are adding about 250g carb.

    so 80g of carbs (dextrose) = 25tsp, which = .52 cups...is that right?

    1 tsp = 4g
    1 tbs = 12g
    1 cup = 192g
    .5 cup = 96g

    Other useful equations

    3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
    16 tablespoon = 1 cup
    48 teaspoons also = 1 cup.

    ok....I feel like an idiot. So if 1 of my scoops that came with the dex equals 3 tsps then.... 7 of my scoops equal 84 grams of carbs?

    It would be a tablespoon if it is equal to 3 tsp. If that is truely it's size, than you are correct. If you are not sure, why not run to the 99 cent stopre and pick up a measuing cup.

    Great question Diesel (and I shall overlook you mispelling of my name and assume that it is a typo). It seems to depend on which site you check.

    I am really not sure which estimate is closer. For my own purposes I can share with you what I have been doing and with which I have been having some success.

    I am using one cup of protien mix, which should yield 51g of protien and 6g of carb. I am adding half a cup of dextrose which by my estimate would yield 96g carb. So, in total I figure I am getting about 50g protien and 100g carb. If you really think that you can refine your measurements to .52 of a cup, more power to you. For me I am just too simple a person, so I feel it necessary to derive a simple solution.

    you're right, i got my lazy ass up and googled it...everything i found confirms your measurement of 1tsp = 4g...so, to make it simplier on my end, i figured 7tbsp to give me around 84g, which is my target...thanks Beeny...

    dood, just kiddin' BEENIE!!!!

    What?

    1 protein scoop is roughly 30 g's. The dextrose serving scooper is 10 g's...

    1 protein scoop full of dextrose is 30 g's.
