    Peas are a legume so kinda not Primal. I use Jay Robb's egg protein powder (when I use one at all, rarely).

        Doing my research and digging up old threads Is this true, pea protein isn't really paleo? I'm hoping to find something that won't trigger my irritable bowel syndrome, and apparently pea protein is hypoallergenic so it's good for that according to most of the websites I found like this one -

        Do you guys think pea protein is OK or should I avoid?

          Seriously, are you asking permission to eat peas?

            Mark Sisson: Where Do Legumes Belong in the Primal Eating Plan? (The short answer is that Mark is OK with legumes now, though not enthusiastic.)

            Loren Cordain is not OK with them, but he is the old guard, inflexible and restrictive on many fronts.

            The bigger issue in my mind is whether protein powder from any source is paleo. It's not even close to real food. I'm sure that plenty of people do fine on protein powder, but then again plenty have no complaints living on bread.

              If your problem is IBS avoid it and any other protein supplement besides gelatin. Look into GAPS or SCD protocols. Both will likely help resolve your IBS issues with an eye toward primal in the long run.

                Great Lakes gelatin or collagen hydrolysate. 11 grams protein per two rounded TBSP. The CH is gelatin that has its gelling ability removed, so it dissolves in my coffee or tea, in hot chocolate or smoothies, soups, yogurt. I add it to everything but a G+T.

                    Stronger Faster Healthier Protein is very clean, has a great amino acid profile, almost no sugar, and is very easy to digest. Though if you can't do whey, try Sun Warrior protein, it's a vegan protein that is pretty clean as well.

                      Can't think of any common reason why anyone would have a problem with whey. It's amino acids. No carbs, no lactose.

                      "Organic Certified Classic Plus builds on Sunwarrior’s original rice protein by adding in the amino acid balancing effects of peas, chia seeds, quinoa, and amaranth. This superfood combination still relies heavily on the gentle nature of whole-grain brown rice, but with a hefty dose of the strength that has made Warrior Blend so popular."

                      Has to have a boat load of carbs with that kind of minimal protein. Certainly minimal compared to animal products. Superfood, my patooty.
