Almased and Exercise

How to use
Dissolve 50 grams (5 heaped tablespoons) of Almased in 200-350 ml of water with 2 teaspoons of oil rich in essential fatty acids (e.g. rapeseed, walnut, flaxseed, olive) or substitute water for 200ml of low fat milk.
Mix thoroughly with a spoon or Almased shaker to ensure a consistent texture.
Please follow instructions carefully.
