    Default Which protein shake mix is best for me?

    I'm allergic to dairy products.
    I won't touch soy products.

    Default Try...

    Brown rice protein or maybe pea protein?

    I think Pea is more expensive, probably because its amino acid profile is better or something like that.

    There are options such as hemp protein and rice protein. The biggest difference imo is the price.

    I've tried the Sunwarrior rice protein and it was a great product. 3x as expensive as the whey protein I now use though.

    Are you completely allergic to milk? I know that some of the isolates from Trueprotein.com (where I get my whey protein from) are almost completely lactose free.

    I don't think its the lactose.
    I get cramps in my stomach when I injest any whey.
    My throat closes up when I eat creme or butter, but worse with cream.
    I swell up; it sucks.
    Do shakes help? Or should I just eat more protein?
    Vague, I know, but just be general.

    Ryan Andrews, RD, CSCS points to a comparison chart of veggie protein powders compared with Whey.
    the chart uses TrueProtein.com sources.

    If you decide to get some stuff from true protein, you can use my code for a 5% discount. it's MCS110

    Fast answer: pea/gemma protein powder seems to have the optimal profile for non-dairy protein powders.

    And just for the heck of it, if you'd like my whey-based mixes for protein powder based drinks - since you can custom blend at TP - here's a few:

    for post workout, straight up hydrostatic whey - best digesting if you care about optimum absorption rates.
    You can add whatever malto/dextro to these you wish for your 2:1, 4:1 carb/protein post recovery too. Remember to add a twist of salt and if you feel really optimal 3-5g of BCAA's

    For "anytime" protein
    Milk Protein Isolate - 30%
    Micellar Casein - 30%
    Whey Protein Isolate Cold-Filtration -40%

    adding the amogen blend to any of these helps absorption too.

    And again, for during post recover on the vegan side, gemma (pea) is great; hemp is good anytime protein. Rice is a fast one too. ovearll gemma seems to have the best profile.

    hope that helps

    mc - Do you add a flavor or sweetner to your custom mix? Your mix is very similar to a mix that I have ordered in the past.
