Need new source for protein powder

I cannot assimilate whey protein. I was thinking of egg protein, or even soy (yes, I can hear the objections now, but let's talk about it).

Here's the debacle: I am finicky. I want it completely unsweetened. I don't want any of those artificial sweeteners that usually inundate powdered supplements. I also don't want it flavoured. If I simply MUST, I'd do vanilla, but then again, when flavours are added, so are some various derivatives of sweeteners.

If I want "chocolate" then I have the choice to add PLAIN unsweetened baking cocoa powder. If I want "vanilla" I will add extract. Etc., etc.

The store where I was purchasing my protein powder, (the only place I could find ANY protein powder that was unflavoured and unsweetened), no longer carries it. They carry whey protein and only the stuff that's sweetened and flavoured and coloured.

Given the finicky nature of what I'm seeking, does anyone have any sources for me? Frankly, I haven't been on DF in so long, I think I've lost touch with what may previously have been regular sourced threads.

Thanks everyone.


Merrida

Hi Merrida,

I don't feel qualified to make a recommendation as to which plant or animal your protein should come from. I don't use protein powders anymore, but when I did, I was quite pleased with trueprotein.com. You can even customize a mix for yourself. The prices were always reasonable too.

LiftGirl,

Thank you. I wasn't looking for any particular "type" of protein recommendation, (as long as it was clear that I couldn't do whey)....but rather, a source for me to find protein not loaded with flavours and sweeteners, and I can take it from there.

Thank you very much!

You cant even take WPI (as opposed to WPC)?

No. Go figure, eh?

But I need to get some additional protein (beyond what I'm getting in my diet),...(get this -->) Even my surgeon's recommended it!

Any thoughts?

I will check out the site LiftGirl mentioned. I recall cursor and LadyC and I think Scott, told me about a site where I could custom blend (maybe the same place?)....

But as you know,...I haven't been too present here for some time.

Thanks for any help you guys!

LiftGirl,

I have tried to order from that site a few times, but it always gets mixed up. They list in my shopping cart things I've never ordered, and I can't seem to delete them. I enter my billing and shipping address, and (get this),...a name and address I've never heard of in WA state keep popping up as the address they'll ship to.

I've been at it all morning,...

Any other site you recommend?

I know I've ordered from others before, but this is nutso.

Hmmm, how strange.

I don't really have other recommendations because that's the only place I ever ordered from. Maybe someone else has some ideas?

Leave it to me. If something's going to go wonky, it'll happen to me.

I just ordered a generic, unsweetened, plain egg protein from Amazon to get me started. Rather than wait until I either figure this site out (isn't that the strangest thing, ever?), or find a new one, I at least want to start supplementing my body.

I'm still looking, btw. The protein powder from Amazon (forgot brand at the moment), is to tide me over. Most important was that it was not a form of whey (Isolate or Concentrate), non-dairy, non-sweetened, non-flavoured.

It'll get me on the track.

I sure do feel silly that for whatever reason, the site spit out random products, names, and shipping addresses (but got my billing address correct)....here's to hoping nothing got charged to my credit card.

This may not fit all your criteria but Optimum Nutrition offers some Whey Proteins that INCLUDE Lactase enzyme and other enzymes that allow for easy digestion and thus avoid the bloating and gas problems most other whey proteins have

Whenever they use a sweetener it is only Stevia

Thank you for the reply Mike.

What I'm really looking for is a protein powder that won't disagree with me, but also that is not flavoured and is not sweetened at all, naturally or chemically.

Have you considered Hemp Protein? Also check out Moringa Powder.
Both are amazing sources of all natural protein powders. Taking one, or both could do the trick for ya, and give your body the protein kick it needs!

I ordered a supplement regiment from Beachbody. It's more then just protein for your workout. It covers all aspects of energy and recovery. I do not know if they have flavoring that you don't like but always worth a look into.
