Due to an allergy to the proteins in milk, I've decided I must find an alternative product. I've used whey protein for years, but I can't continue with whey because the allergy is getting worse.
I don't really see the allergy as a problem for most meals of the day, but for the peri-workout nutrition, it's a big deal. It seems that all options have casein and or whey (hydrolyzed or not).
Are there any good and fast-acting, non-milk based proteins out there?
I can't use soy, and don't want to use egg protein either.
I've read that Dr. John Berardi has said that "Rice protein extracts are a great hypoallergenic alternative to milk and soy proteins. Some rice protein on the market have been fortified with the limiting amino acids and can be a good choice." So rice seems to nail the hypoallergenic aspect, but where can I find a complete rice protein (at a decent price) and what about the fast acting part?
I also know about pea protein isolate, but I'm unsure if this is hypoallergenic. Has anyone tried this, or know of any studies using it?
Thanks as always.
