On July 1, 2014, a consumer class action complaint was filed in the Federal District Court for the Central District of California against Body Fortress alleging that two of their whey protein products were misleading consumers as to protein content. Protein content is indirectly determined by testing the nitrogen content of the product. The complaint alleges that in an effort to cut costs, cheaper free form amino acids and non-protein ingredients were purposely added to the product to inflate the nitrogen content. This “nitrogen spiking” resulted in testing, labeling and marketing that deceived consumers as to the real protein content, which according to the complaint was 30% less than claimed.
