    How long is the protein isolate stable once it's mixed into a shake ie. milk or water? in other words, how fast does it deteriorate once its mixed?

    is temperature a factor?
    is the solvent a factor? (water, juice, milk, etc.?)

    reason for asking its that mixing my prot-shake at work is a PITA and always ends up full of clumps, nowhere as good as the ones i mix at home w/a blender, plus at home you can always add more goodies like peanut butter, strawberries, oatmeal, bannanas, etc. :yum:

    Just try to find a free shaker somewhere. Or just buy a quality one.

    its as stable as milk, so if you keep it cool it should be fine

    what brand protein isolate are you using? I've never really had a problem with clumping and I've always shaken my stuff.


    BTW: if you guys are looking for a cheap and effective shaker, go to target and buy one of those lexan drinking bottles. They have them on sale for like 1 bux for the small one and 3 bux for the huge 32 oz one.

    I use both ON, and Isopure,
    but use ON during the day most of the time.
