I actually saw on a protein container that you shouldn't use a blender with it.... too bad I can't find it anymore... Something about how it breaks up the bonds and basically degrades it.

Somebody make sure and pass this on to Muscular Warrier. He might be mixing his Myoplex in a blender.

Blender will have no negative effect

Mechanical agitation will have no effect on the chemical bonds of the protein. It's like saying that a blender will break up water into hydrogen and oxygen. Last time I checked that didn't happen.

As long as you don't throw the shake into the microwave you are fine

It just so happens my blend DOES do this. It's quite annoying.

Haha, well then your wiring is f'd and you have a current going through the water. Probably not the safest thing

I just press the clump button on my blender and it clumps the protein up tight and I swallow them like golf balls and chase them with milk I find that I get a good pump afterwards hehe in my mid section for some reason.
