It looks like I can't have any of the protein powders from Trader Joe's because they have fructose and maltodextrin in them (which I have many cans of in my cupboard!)...

and I have a can of "Whole Foods 365 Whey Protein Powder" which says:

--Ion exchanged
--Microfiltered
--Hydrolyzed
--Lactose free
Ingredients (Cross-flow micro-filtered and ultra-filtered whey protein isolate, micro-filtered whey protein concentrate, natural vanilla flavor, ion-exchange whey protein isolate, hydrolyzed whey protein concentrate, free-form branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) (Leucine, valine, isoleucine), free-form L-glutamine, Stevia.

Is this ok to use for my protein-fruit smoothies?

And what is the most economical-best kind/place to get protein powder for smoothies for me?

Thanks for any help with this?

Oh, and why can't I have regular (or decaf) black coffee.  I don't have any stomach acid or digestion problems (that I am aware of).

coffee plays havoc with our system in general....
insulin mimicking response for one.....

NAP s protein powder has the right balance for your physiology....
avoid whey and fillers as well as additives found in all other brands

I think you answered your own question.  "That I am aware of".

I guess my question really is:

Can I have "lactose-free" whey protein powder?

Or can I only have rice and egg protein powder?

You can have whatever you'd like to eat. The diet suggests avoiding whey completely.

I alternate between NAP Protein power and NOW Whey Protein Isolate.  I add carob power to the Now brand.  I get that at the Health Food Store.

I use whey even though its an avoid. Make sure it doesn't have lots of additives, sugar and it high quality.  Its the only dairy product I consume. Also I can't bring myself to eat other sources of protein, like eggs.
To me, whey helps with stamina and weight control. Haven't noticed any negative side affects, but I may be overlooking something, too.

I have been trying a very high protein whey protein on 2 separate occasions; week before last for 2 days (1-2 serves each day) & now last week for 2 serves (1 on each of 2 successive days)
It was just as an experiment to see if on a needs basis I could have it as a protein source occasionally...but on both trials I developed mucous symptoms & this second time have ended up with a sore throat too... Not fun - I know, dumb to experiment but if I hadn't, I would not have known...
