Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free Protein Supplement?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have suggestions for a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free protein supplement? I would prefer a powder to add to smoothies (unflavored).

I've tried Jarrow rice and Plant fusion, but the former gets gooey and the latter has too much sugar/sugar replacement.

I've tried some small packets of the RAW protein powders, but a lot of them have wheat and barley grass in them, and they also have more sugars and sugar replacements than I'd like.

So... any suggestions?

Also, did anyone have a hard time with recovery at first? I used to do crazy interval training (a la Insanity) and might be sore the next day, but I could survive. Now if I do a short interval session it takes me days to recover. I'm about four months into gluten-free after a Celiac diagnosis. I was too tired before my diagnosis to work out much, so I know that's part of it.

I'm about 6 weeks in, and have no energy for even a walk in the evenings - I used to be hardcore into bootcamp and working out everyday...now I can hardly get my laundry done. Granted, I've been this way for longer than the 6 weeks since cutting out gluten - it's been this way all year. I completely feel your pain, so does my body! I wish I knew where all my energy and metabolism went.

Hope you find a good supplement, I have yet to find one either.

Trader Joe's makes an Organic Hemp Protein Powder - Ingredients: Organic Hemp Protein Powder, Organic Palm Sugar, Organic Vanilla Flavor. I have used it for a couple of years - high in fiber and Omega 3's. :)

Oh, that's really good to know. We're supposed to get a Trader Joe's soon! The hemp protein powder that one of our local health food stores has has something in it I don't want - I don't remember what, though.

I'm excited about TJ's, but I hope they don't take too much business away from our local ones. I've read varying reviews about how gluten-free friendly they are.

I do feel a little better now than I did several months ago, but I still pretty much just want to sleep. I need to cut back on the caffeine, I think (most days I just have a strong cup of black British tea first thing), and just let myself sleep a little later. I'm probably only getting an average of 7 hours a night, so I definitely need to work on that.

I'll try mushroom's suggestion of the Trader Joe's hemp protein once our store opens. In the meantime, I went back to Plant Fusion. It has some extra good things in it, like digestive enzymes, but it also has fructose and stevia (in the unflavored one!), neither of which I need in a smoothie. There are some raw ones that I'm tempted to try, but a lot of them have things like barley grass juice in them. I know the debate about whether things like that and wheat grass are safe is a pretty big one - and, as I understand it, the issue is whether the grass may contain seeds (the grass itself, I think, should be ok) that would allow gluten to get through the juicing process. What's frustrating is that they're labelled wheat and gluten free, so only careful reading of that complicated ingredient list identified that (I spend a lot of time in the supplements aisle when I shop!).

I've been able to get some short runs in on the weekends, and I'm going to start trying to do yoga most days, even if just for 15 minutes. I know it helps me mentally, and physically I do feel better even if I just do a little bit. Of course, I really want to be at the climbing gym and doing Insanity again, but just thinking about that makes me want to take a nap!!!

thanks, user853 - i tried some of their small packets, but unfortunately maybe some of the flavors i picked were bad, but the sweetness was overwhelming. maybe if i didn't mix them with fruit, but they must have an awful lot of stevia! one drink i couldn't even drink it was so sweet - i tried to freeze it, and eat like a frozen treat, but still too sweet. i'll look for some unflavored versions, maybe online (none available locally)!

I've used plain rice protein powder, hemp protein, pumpkin seed protein (my favorite), and veggie blend, and pea protein. They've all been fine in smoothies.

    • Hi guys. It's me Jenny 😊I feel like I post every other day with problems or questions. Well I'm here again. I have this problem with my left leg (in particular) at night going numb it wakes me up in the middle of me sleeping and is difficult to fall back to sleep. It's not my bed mattress, it's not the location on how I sleep. I don't know what it is. It only happens at night. The neurologist said I was sleeping on my spine wrong because I sometimes end up on my back wrong! Happens just as much on my side. Don't know if this is celiacs related damage or something else my quality of sleep sucks! Any one experience this? Also I have a mysterious pain that started in my neck atleast 2 years ago got use to it but over the summer I noticed there was pain (unbearable) on the shoulder generating down to the wrist on one side. Any one know what this could be. My doctor diagnosed arthrits but I'm only 30
    • I have been gluten free for about 7 months. I had a check with my gastroenterologist at 4 months post endoscopy, and asked him to check my thyroid, iron, vit D and Vitamin B12 levels. They told me all were fine (which I found surprising, but I take vitamins). Shortly after that, my hair started to fall out like crazy. At first I thought it might be due to an accidental glutening in mid Sept, but it is still falling out. I finally did a hair count after yesterdays shower - 919 strands!  Thank goodness I (had) thick hair, but its getting noticeable. Coincidentally, yesterday I noticed bruising on my arms & don't remember hitting anything, but I remember getting bumped by someone. Could my iron change that fast? I'm looking for answers. Yes I use gluten free shampoo & product, but I dont know if my hairdressers shampoo is gluten-free. I only go there once a month though. Any ideas would be much appreciated! 
    • Just wanted to revive this thread with an update. My daughter's appetite/calorie intake is slightly better these days, especially in the morning--though overall I'd say that she usually still has to eat deliberately rather than out of true hunger. The main problem is that she still feels terrible most evenings. She often can barely tolerate dinner some nights (we don't force it, and she eats enough at breakfast/lunch/snack that she can do without major evening calories). She describes it as a general malaise, "like when you have a fever and you feel a little nauseous and bad all over, not really hurting in one specific place." No diarrhea, cramping, or other specific GI symptoms. It seems much more related to time of day than to anything in particular that she's eating. She's still eating no oats. She has a relatively low-lactose diet--a little milk in her morning smoothie (that doesn't seem to affect her at all), doesn't like yogurt, occasional hard cheese that would be low in lactose already. Her diet doesn't vary a lot right now. She uses ginger chews and ginger tea. We're exploring probiotics and did take them a few times, but her celiac specialist warned that some probiotics are grown on a gluten-containing medium and we are awaiting a list of approved probiotics from her nurse.  We are aware that there is probably an anxiety component--she's definitely anxious--but we also don't want to discount her symptoms after all those years of thinking she had a "nervous tummy" when it was really celiac. Does anyone have other insights or suggestions to help with evenings? thanks!
    • My daughter also loves to make ginger bread house every Christmas. I buy this gluten-free kit every December from a gluten free bakery called Sensitive Sweets.   They ship the kit to our house. http://www.sensitivesweets.com/holiday-items/gluten-free-vegan-gingerbread-house-kit
    • We are going to try to make our own this year, but I've seen some great gingerbread houses made out of graham crackers. There are plenty of gluten-free graham crackers out there--Pamela's are nice and sturdy for building! If you make your own, the nice thing is that you don't have to worry whether it tastes good.   https://www.happinessishomemade.net/make-graham-cracker-gingerbread-houses/   https://gfjules.com/recipes/gluten-free-gingerbread-house-how-to/ https://www.glutenfreebaking.com/how-to-make-a-gluten-free-gingerbread-house/
