    Default Clear Liquid Protein Drinks???

    Are all Isopure drinks considered clear liquids, or is it only the 'fruit' flavored mixes? Not talking about the RTD in the bottles, but the powder mixes.

    What about the unflavored Isopure powder?

    Thanks!

I am fearful someone has picked him up and removed him from the area, the more people who see his picture the better, he could be anywhere. Please like & share: Please Help Find Reggie

    My doctor says to count my protein drinks in my liquid totals. It doesn't matter if I use powdered or RTD.

    No, not all Isopure drinks are considered clear. Only those fruit flavored ones they sell in the ready-to-drink bottles unless they have a powdered version of those flavors (not sure). But like the chocolate, vanilla, etc are not.

    You could buy the protein shots (like New Whey) and add that to water for the clear category - but again, those are fruity flavors.

    Either way, try ONE before you buy a large quantity because you may not like it. Hope that helps!

    Thank you SO much Kim!! I don't mind the fruity flavors, just the concern about the sweetness, but can always dilute. And regardless which airport I fly out of, I will be able to hit a walmart, so the shots will be an ok temporary fix. I will stop in at the little GNC that is inside RiteAid tomorrow and see what they have. Worse case, I will add gelatin to everything, its primarily for those clear liquid days.

    I think I will have to try to get to a Vitamin Shoppe on my way to the airport to get the RTD ones... The closest Vitamin Shoppe is 3+ hrs away in Boise, but not far from the airport if I end up flying out of there. There are the powdered mixes for the same flavors as the RTD, so maybe I will just order one so I have something to drink the 3 days of clear liquids.

    Can't wait until next year and my move to Dallas, I am really tired of not being able to buy things here! I ordered isopure online, but they were the vanilla, cookies and cream and the unflavored. Somehow I thought 'all' isopure drinks were clear

    Any chance the unflavored will be clear liquid?
