  • Soy-Free Protein powders

    Im working on recipes for energy bars for backpacking trips, and I like to add protein powder to them to up the protein levels. Could someone suggest a powder that contains no soy lechtin?
    I saw some hemp protein powder today, but wasnt sure if that was an acceptable type to use under this diet. any recommendations?

    Why not whey protein?

      Pure whey, ftw.

        Whey would be fine, but every one I looked at contains soy lechtin. along with that, I cant afford paying 480 for a can of it. Worse comes to worse, I'll skip it.

          What is lechtin? Do you mean lectin or lecithin? They are very different things. First one is bad, second one haven't heard it is. I think its the latter thats in the protein powders.

              I searched long and hard for just such a thing, for just such a purpose, and found it, surprisingly enough, at The Vitamin Shoppe. It's called Solgar, and it contains only WPI and vanilla. It's rather tasty mixed up with whole milk as a shake, but also I use it in nut-based energy bars, to very good effect.
