Q. Is Cambridge like the Liquid Protein Diet?

A. No! The Liquid Protein Diet was not a balanced formula. Its protein was extracted from boiled cowhides and didn't contain all of the essential amino acids.

The protein in Cambridge products is derived from milk and soy isolates and contains all 22 essential amino acids. The Cambridge formulas also contain all of the vitamins and minerals required for good health, and are perfectly balanced.
