Postby holly3372@msn.com » Sat Mar 13, 639576 1:33 am

Wondering if soomeone can explain what "trace amount of protein" means? I have heard +1 +2 +3 but what exactly does trace mean? Is it trouble? Thanks

A trace is below 1+, meaning just a tiny bit of protein is present. So it's none, trace, 1+, 2+ etc.
