Ingredients - Rice Protein Concentrate
Nutritional Details (/100g)

Fat               5g      
Carb            15g
-    Sugars     0g
Cholestrol    0g
Sodium    <5mg
Potassium<5mg

2) Brand  - Aminoplex Rice Protein Powder
Ingredients - Rice Protein    98.5%
                   Natural Vanilla Flavour (from Vanilla beans) 1.5%
Nutritional Details (/100g)
Protein    22g

Carbs    18g
-    Sugars    7g (seems this is from the rice, not an added sugar (see ingredients)

Please let me know, and thanks in advance!

Thanks accidental_chef,

Do you know if these can be ordered through health food stores or are they practitioner ordered only?  

Whichever way they seem good especially the first one

Thanks Lola, thanks shells!

shells, I'm not sure really. My friend does health food and such...and I managed to get walnuts from him. Been searching high and low for a compliant protein powder to suppliment my diet, and he found me this. The link works only for practioners, however  . Let me check and let you know..?

I remember the pre BTD days when I used to take soy protein powders. I used to blend it with juice, and L carnitine and drink it during my exercise. Produced great results and stamina (of course who knew about the long terms effects of sucrose laden fruit juice & soy and all the other   bits in the protein drink huh?), so I'm thinking whether I could follow the same method? What do y'all think?

So I'm getting 2 tubs of this product. I'm very excited and relieved at the same time, coz there's a temple pilgrimage coming up very soon for 2 weeks and eggs will be totally out of the question. I wont be able to follow my structured diet & exercise routine...and it's going to be grains galore. I will be able to say no to wheat products but definitely not to rice. With this rice powder at least I'll have some supplimentation.

God help me

just checked typebase and nonnies are to avoid vanilla, but since you don't have your secretor status as of yet it is considered neutral Right?

I would opt for the first protein powder.  

Often times, natural 'flavor' in a food label constitutes corn derived products.  I encourage you to contact the company or e-mail them to make an inquiry to confirm this information if corn poses problems for you.
