Vegan BRANDS of BCAA's

#1 Postby robert » Tue May 27, 2008 3:22 pm

Hey, a friend just phoned asking about Brands of products that are vegan BCAA products.

I couldn't find mine at home (moved to a new house) and couldn't remember brand names.

Anyone know brand names of for Vegan Branch Chain Amino Acids?

Thanks!

Yeah - you have to check with the company to see if its vegan. Some are derived from dairy.

These brands have a vegan BCAA product:
Scivation Xtend
NOW
Arizona Nutritionals (Blox)
Optimum Nutrition
