BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Pea Protein Powder?
Posted by: 107 (Guest), Sunday, December 17, 2006, 5:29am
Anyone used pea protein powder?  I've been looking for a protein powder I could actually use, as all are made with stuff I am sensitive to.  I found this one from one of the companies I order some supplements from.  They are a great, hypoallergenic company, love them and such great customer service.

By the way, I highly recommend their magnesium glycinate, and calcium chelate form.  They work awesomely well for me.  Also, I really like their probiotic, ProBio Inuline Free Gold.  It is good.

But, what do you think of the pea protein for O nonnie?  I need something to drink soon after my workout...

Whoops!  I forgot to post the company for the pea protein.  It is Kirkman and here is the pea protein info.

Tina...if you are looking for a protein powder...why don't you try NAP's for O's.  It has all of the ingredients you need. ;)

Actually, this product looks like a good source of protein for blood tope A's who are suppose to thrive on vegetable protein sources.

On another similar note, the NAP 'A' Protein powder combines peas, rice, and soy as its protein sources.

Shock to see the fiber content at 0% especially since it comes from peas which do have fiber. Unless you get your fiber from other products I would want fiber in the protein. Just my 2 cents.

Hi Buzy,

The product in question was specifically created (extracted) to provide a protein source, that is why the fiber content that occurs in whole peas is absent.

add ground linseed to that and you got yourself great fiber!

I guess my concern is when I fix a smoothie or shake with protein I need the fiber included to avoid constipation. That may just be me. But if I eat a lot of protein it tends to not move thru my digestive system real well.

I will definitely check out the NAP product for protein powder too.  Thanks.  Also, you are right, Laura.  Many times I haven't wanted to cut something out, and it ended up being not too good for me.  Anyway, I know I can make it without the bread every day or at all, but my problem is not going overboard on protein when I am completely grain free.  But, I am definitely cutting back to 2 or so days a week for the bread, and that is my only starch besides an occasional sweet potato which don't sit to well with me.  They just make me bloated feeling!

I found this protein powder too and was wondering if any of you knew about it:  Hempseed powder?  Would that be good for O nonnie?

Here's the info on it from a website:

Hemp Protein Powder (Ruth's Raw Organic) 18 oz
[hempr] $19.95 $18.15





Ruth's Raw Organic Hemp Protein Powder offers exceptional protein, with all essential amino acids, is high fiber and is not chemically processed like most soy and whey powders. Raw Organic Hemp Protein supplies 15 grams protein per serving. One serving = 30 grams = 2 scoops. The powder is actually 48% protein.

Mix into your smoothies to achieve and maintain optimal weight, while imparting strength, endurance and well-being. You can also use it as in baking recipes to substitute for up to 15% of the flour called for. This will lower the carbs and increase the protein in any recipe. Or simply stir into your yoghurt, or sprinkle on hot or cold cereal.

More Information on Hemp: Planet friendly hemp (a non-drug crop) is grown in 33 countries without pesticides, its sturdy stalks produce clothing, rope, insulation, and many more products. Due to its versatility, the cultivation of hemp was mandated by early colonial law and both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were hemp farmers. Hemp was also mandated during WWII for Navy vessel rope. Since hemp cuts across so many industries like clothing, paper and food production and anyone can grow it, it could represent a means of dispersing wealth evenly throughout society. Please support hemp foods and clothing businesses, it feels light and soft yet is 5 times more durable than cotton

Tina, Can you use egg white and/or rice protein powder? Have you tried them?

that's what I use....a combo of the two that I mix up at the time of making the smoothie. Love it.

I don't think I should use the rice powder, being it is grain-based, and I don't do well with grains.  I eat egg whites each morning, and didn't really want to overdo it on that, and my oldest son is allergic to eggs as well.  I was looking for something he could use too, to make smoothies for an after school snack.  I figured since it is a seed, and O's seem to do well with seeds and nuts for the most part, that it would be okay.  The kind I ordered is raw and I don't plan to cook with it, although I read that you can.  

I did order it just now in fact, so I will keep you posted on how it goes.  I guess it won't hurt to try!  I hope not anyway.

Let us know how the hemp experimnet goes.

It may be the starch in rice that bothers you so it might be worth trying some rice protein powder. Luckily it is not very expensive if you decide to try it.

Do you only eat the egg whites? As a type O I wouldn't worry about eating all the egg yolks, unless they bother you for some reason. I'm sorry your son is allergic to eggs.

Did you not get on well with rice protein powder?  I swear by a product made by Nutribiotics.  Contains brown rice protein powder and stevia and thats it
Posted by: Don, Monday, December 18, 2006, 9:11pm; Reply: 19
Stevia is a type O non-secretor avoid.

I bought a container of hemp protein powder just to give it a try because I read such wonderful things about it. I'm sure the nutritional benefits are good but I just couldn't get past the taste. The color was dark green and it seemed kinda gritty and taste like dirt. My husband put it in smoothies for a while and we tried to use as much as we could up but I think adventually I ended up throwing the rest of it out.

Oh yeah, of course

So there is no starch in the rice protein powder?  I didn't know that!  Yes, I figure the starch is one thing that makes me gain weight when I eat grains.  Is that right?

The nutritional content of rice protein powder does vary by brand. Some brands have more carbs then others.

The Nutribiotic Rice Protein brand I have now has only 1g of sugar from the rice itself and 200mg of fiber and no other carbs for a serving of 12 g of protein.

The MLO Brown Rice Powder has 12g (2g dietary fiber, 3g sugars) of carbs and 15 g of protein per serving.
