RO/DI are always the way to go. When you pH drops when using RO/DI, it isn't buffered. You'd still need some sort of acid or base to add to the water if you wish to change it's pH, although it would...

Thanks for the chime in, Tom. Luckily my boyfriend also works for GNC, so I'll definitely try out protein loading the worms.

I might try the milk too.
