    I would guess it would be fine, but would advise shaking it lest it stay settled?

    yeah I would shake it, but does it matter if its been refridgerated? i know hot water breaks down the Amino acids but what does cold do? I'd like to take some to work, but blending them here is not an option.

    as long as its refrigerated, sure. its just a component of milk, and milk doesn't go bad in hours when refridgerated

    If you're just putting powders in it, blender bottles are where it's at.

    GNC has some awesome shakers with a metal coil inside.

    I just started using 1 of these instead of an actual blender and it works great.

    Put your protein powder in a ziplock, then throw some cold water in the shaker and dump in your protein powder and you are all set.

    I put the powder in my blender bottle, add water when I'm ready to use it.

    OH lol :o. I don't put anything in it for work, just the powder plus water, I don't want it to get chunky mid day. I put stuff in it for breakfast though, like today i put strawberries and low fat yogurt.

    I guess it would make sense to buy a shaker then, because I will need it when I go to school too.

    i took my thermos to work today and i shook it myself, it tastes so much better in a blender because it comes out thicker and tastes more like an actual shake :hs:

    that link you just sent me, does the shake come out thick?

    maybe, but doesn't your body break down protiens to their amino acids anyways?

    that sounds like what happens to creatine>creatinine to me.

    wouldn't the protein in milk be broken down before it reached the truck at the farm if that were the case? AFAIK, protein needs heat or chemicals to breakdown, neither of which is found in room temp water.

    just look at those whey shots, they are stored in liquid form and are good when you buy them
