Calorie Content of BCAA, Glutamine, and Citrulline Products

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating potential deceptive marketing claims as they relate to Calorie content of Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), Glutamine, and Citrulline-based supplemental powders. Many of these products across the market, including those listed below, prominently display on the product’s label a representation of 0-5 calories per serving or omit the Caloric nutritional fact completely from packaging so as to indicate to customers its irrelevance. However, contrary to such targeted marketing efforts, independent testing has revealed that many such BCAA, Glutamine, and Citrulline-based products actually contain anywhere from 25 to 60 Calories per serving. This poses a major issue for customers who purchase nutritional supplements as part of their broader health and fitness goals and are depending upon accurate information from the manufacturers’ representations of Calorie content.

Potentially mislabeled or misleadingly labeled supplements include:

  • Advanced Bionutritionals- Perfect Amino XP Powder
  • Advanced Molecular Labs- Preworkout X-Treme
  • Alani- BCAA
  • Allmax- Amino Core BCAA
  • Bulk Supplements- BCAA Products
  • Beyond Raw Chemistry Labs-L Glutamine
  • Body Tech- BCAA + Glutamine Powder
  • Clean Machine-Clean BCAA
  • Jay Cutler Nutrition- Generate Superior BCAA & EAA
  • GNC Pro Performance- L Glutamine
  • Granite- Essential Aminos
  • Max Muscle Nutrition- Pro BCAA
  • Muscle Tech- Amino Build
  • Mutant- BCAA 9.7
  • NutraBio-Glutamine Pure Grade Amino Acid
  • Nutrex Research- EAA+
  • Nutricost- Performance BCAA
  • Now Sports- L Glutamine Powder
  • Six Star- Aminos + Energy
  • Transparent Labs- Stim Free Pre-Workout
