Test for amino acids in Protein shakes (Experiment)

  1. Sep 14, 2010 #1
    I was wondering whether anyone knows an experiment relating to bodybuilding protein shakes.
    I want to find out which amino acids are present within the protein shake by doing an experiment but i have no clue what how to carry it out. The protein is in powder form. I was thinking of chromatography?? Could anyone help please ;) Thanks
