Best Dairy/Egg-Free Protein Powder?


#1

So I did an IGE and IGG food test and tested positive for all dairy products, gluten products, rice, and eggs.

So I guess this limits me to Hemp or Pea Protein.

Anyone have a recommendation on a good quality, good tasting protein powder?

I also thought maybe I could take 20-30gms of BCAA with 1 scoop of protein powder. I normally do 2 scoops of whey (50-60 grams protein) and 5-10 grams of BCAA post workout.

Any suggestions.

beef

I've got a bunch of pea protein. Didn't cost too much, just wanted to try something different.
Tastes like shit, but oh well.


#4

Pea protein

Can't really mention other brands on here. Google it.


#5

I seen an add for a protein supp made from beef somehow? I haven't looked into it because this mag was from about 5 years ago. I figured if it was popular i would have heard about it by now.


#6

its called something like carnivore. i think kai greene endorses it


#7

I haven't tried it myself, but I've heard it tastes fucking disgusting.


#8

...well so does chicken breast


#9

I love them. I have eaten upwards to 5-7 chicken breasts a day.


#10

im joking i eat CB pretty muc every day too.... the beef protein i tried wasnt that bad but then again i dont despise chicken breast which seems like every one else hates lately tooo


#11

^^LOL that's exactly why I couldn't tell you were joking. I don't think there's a food more hated on these forums.


#12

people need to learn to cook. OP there are places that let you mix your own protein. just google custom protein blend.


#13

What do you guys think of only taking high dosages of BCAAs and glutamine after workout.


#14

I bought a tub and didn't even finish it. It doesn't taste too bad, but every time I opened the container my whole apartment would smell like rancid meat. Makes me gag to even think about it.


#15

Supplements are great and all, but there's really no point in half assing your workout nutrition. Back in the day people would just eat a regular protein and carb meal immediately after training.

After you lift go home and cook yourself some meat and potatoes. You will be fine.


#16

OL Pea Protein isn't bad. Many pea proteins taste like your drinking crushed up peas! I've gone through about 3 tubs of this stuff. You can pick it up at The Vitamin Shoppe for around $25.

This might be naive, but couldn't the OP just, say, shotgun two cans of tuna out of the can and get the equivalent of two scoops of whey PWO? I mean, do we really think that pea protein powder will make that significant a difference?

Sorry to hear about the food allergies, OP--that's rough going. Some people suggested it already, but I'll just echo that I've heard that high quality isolates don't aggravate lactose intolerance.


#19

2 cans of tuna every day, post workout?

The risk of mercury poisoning is overstated for the most part but 10-14 cans of tuna per week is just silly.

The difference in satiety alone is enough to make that a far from ideal answer.


#20

Agreed. 2-4 cans a week is more than enough!0
