Gastric bypass patients may absorb even less. The
recommended "dose" is approximately 30 grams.
Taking double doses won't hurt, it just costs more.
We do not get the benefit of the larger dose. No one

approximately 30 grams at one time.
daily doses can be pre-measured dry; however, mixing
the powder with liquid ahead of time can cause a loss
of protein value and an accumulation of bacteria.
