    at what point does a cluster of amino acids become protein with a caloric value? from what i understand things like glutamine and BCAA's tyrosine, etc do not have any coloric values but something like whey protein (which is just a cluster of amino acids) does. if anyone could shed any light on this id be very thankful.

    They DO have caloric value despite what the FDA's rules are.

    No calories? I'm going on a 1kilo/day amino acid diet.
