    At the top of the recipe, there are 9.2 grams of protein per serving listed, but when a person asked the amount of protein per serving in the comments a Lifesum team member stated that there are 40g of protein per serving. Which of these amounts is correct? Why is nutrition information for Lifesum recipes often-times incorrect?

      Hi Loryn,

      At the top of the recipe it says 40 g as well, maybe you mis-read it somewhere. We hope this helps.

      Kind regards,
