The Worst and the Best

In its analysis, the Clean Label Project assigned each product a score for four individual elements: heavy metals, pesticides, contaminants like BPA, and nutrition. Then it calculated an overall score. The heavy metal levels accounted for 60 percent of the overall score because their effects have been shown in studies to pose greater harm to health.

The five products that received the poorest overall scores in this test were:

Garden of Life Organic Shake & Meal Replacement Chocolate Cacao Raw Organic Meal

Natureís Best ISOPURE Creamy Vanilla Zero Carb

Quest Chocolate Milkshake Protein Powder

360Cut Performance Supplements 360PRO WHEY Chocolate Silk Premium Whey Protein

Vega Sport Plant-Based Vanilla Performance Protein

Consumer Reports asked each of the five to comment on the study. Only Garden of Life responded and it declined to comment.

The five products that got the best overall scores were:

Pure Protein Vanilla Cream 100% Whey

Performix Pro Whey Sabor Vanilla Protein with Amino Beads

BodyFortress Super Advanced Vanilla 100% Whey Protein

BioChem Vanilla 100% Whey Protein

Puori PW1 Vanilla Pure Whey Protein

The fact that the higher-scoring products are made with whey makes sense, in keeping with Callanís theories on plant-based vs. whey-based proteins and their differing absorption of toxins.
