TRUE-MASS is the weight gainer by BSN. It contains 28% protein, 53% carbohydrates and 11% fat. In our opinion, its high fat content contributes to a more creamy taste, but the fat comes partially from corn syrup solids which is not healthful. Furthermore, like most weight gainers on the market, it contains the artificial sweeteners acesulfame potassium and sucralose.
What the label doesn’t tell you, and it is with most American protein powders, is that True Mass might contain rBGH (or rBST). rBGH is a hormone that diary farmers inject into dairy cows for increased milk production. European Union, Canada, Australia and New Zealand ban this hormone. The US did not. We’re not saying all American milk products contain rBGH. Ben & Jerry ice-cream for example refuse to use rBGH milk. Unless it is specifically stated on the label otherwise, you should assume all American protein powders to contain rBGH.
If you would like to avoid rBGH, sucralose and acesulfame potassium, you could choose White Knight Anabolic Mass.
