Muscle Milk is NOT Vegan (#Contested)

Please leave the reason for contesting in the comments below or this contest will be revoked.

20110318-023600.jpgDespite the omnipresent label “Contains no milk” on all muscle milk products, the beverage indeed contains 3-4 ingredients that are undoubtedly animal derived, including and most of all, from milk.

According to the label, muscle milk contains a compound called “evopro” consisting of

micellar alpha and beta caseins and caseinates, whey concentrates rich in alpha-lactalbumin, whey isolates, whey peptides, purified bovine colostrum extract rich in secretory IgA and IGF-1, glutamine peptides, l-taurine, lactoferrin

Here are the ingredients in context for one of their products, Blueberries n Crème. Again, notice the words “whey,” “casein(ate),” and “bovine.”

LeanLipids (Trans-Fat lipid complex consisting of Canola oil, Sunflower and or Safflower Oil, MCTs, L-Carnitine), Fructose, Maltodextrin, CYTOVITE I (Vitamin and Mineral Premix consisting of Vitamin A acetate, Ascorbic acid, folate, Thymine monohydrate, Riboflavin, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine HCL, Cyanocobalamin, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Di-Calcium Phosphate, potassium Iodide, potassium chloride, Ferrous Fumarate, Magnesium Oxide, Copper Gluconate, Zinc Oxide, Chromium Nicotinate), Freeze-Dried Blueberry Powder, GCC (Proprietary endogenous Creatine precursor consisting of Glycocyamine, Betaine Anhydrous), Natural and Artificial Flavors, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, Soy Lecithin.
