Protein powder with no sucralose?



Recommended Posts

This just keeps getting worse! I tried the Beneprotein today and it made me gag slightly. I'm wondering if I will just make my own "Shot" and just gag it down.

From Unjury:

The facility that makes the product also occasionally processes shellfish.

The chance that there would be any cross-contamination of shellfish into our product is extremely low, and the odds that it would be a significant amount are even lower.

But it is not impossible for that to happen, and we understand that allergic reactions can be life-threatening.

So we prefer to disclose everything we know, and allow each customer to make their own decision based on their own sensitivities.

:huh0:

Sorry you're not having good luck finding a Protein drink.

Are you still looking for a home for your unjury?

Maybe you should just have a Protein Drink with sugar. The amount you'll be drinking post op is not that much that sugar is going to hurt you. You'll be getting your Protein from regular food shortly after surgery.

I think I'll try DR. Mercola's Miracle whey. If you've the link handy can you post it here? Thanks Donna.

I am now using Dr. Mercola's "Miracle Whey" Protein powder, and it appears there are no artifical sweeteners in it. Ingredients state:

Defense Nutrition Whey Protein Concentrate, Fibersol, Organic Non Fat Dry Milk, Organic Sweet Whey, Fiberaid, Sun Flower Seeds Lecithin, Natural vanilla Flavoring, Medium-Chain Triclycerides, Gum, Natural Caramel Flavoring, Lo-Han.

That is for the vanilla flavored one. I bought all 6 flavors when they had the free shipping to Canada promotion. I started a thread here on it about 5 weeks ago if you search for Dr Mercola Whey it will probably come up.

Hope this helps.

Donna

Miracle Whey Protein Powder | Six Flavors

They also carry a pea Protein powder for those who are lactose intolerant and/or vegetarians. Links to that are at the bottom of the page contained in the link above.

I just checked with them Lis and they will still honour the special pricing and free shipping that are in the promotion.

Thanks Donna, I will give it a try. I'm a suscriber to Dr. Marcola's newsletter and trust his products. It would be so nice if I finally could get over this aversion I've to Protein Shakes, since I loved them pre-surgery. Thanks again.

Oregon you can have my powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury...just send me your address. Sorry, Vegas, I have not gotten around to taking the stuff to the post office!

I emailed Monica and asked her if I could have brown rice/egg white/etc type Protein while in the clears phase. I found a few good broth recipes and will likely stick with that for most of it.

I am also going to use the BeneProtein (even though it has only 6g) and make Jello out of it, I think.

Usually my shellfish allergy just causes me to...well, not go to Red Lobster! Never has it been such an inconvenience!

Ok, so I am going to admit failure here! I have surgery Monday and my mind has just been swimming with a million things. I will send the stuff but it may take me awhile...sorry Vegas and Oregon.

I am excited -- today I am going to go get some "Any Whey" which lives up to my needs, at least on paper.

Newmom-CONGRATS - I'm so happy you found something that will work for you - I hope it is good in "real time" as it is on paper. If so, be sure to let everyone know as there are others that have the same allergies as you and will be happy you did all the research for them.

Mail the sample whenever you have time, I know with your surgery and the holidays time runs out fast ... I run out of day before I run out of chores that need to be done ...

So I tried it last night and still gagged a bit on that Protein powder smell, but mostly it smells like vanilla. However, it doesn't seem to mix clear so I can't use it for the clears phase.

So clears - Beneprotein

After that - AnyWhey

I also had to laugh. The Beneprotein has a tiny scoop and 7g of Protein. I was so excited that the AnyWhey was 17g per scoop. Then I saw the scoop! It is HUGE! Same as 2.5 scoops of the other...so oh well.

I also got a free sample of the sun warrior in the mail yesterday, but I am saving that for after surgery. It is brown rice vegan powder and it is chocolate flavored. I sent them an email and they were nice enough to send a free sample.

Moral of the story -- if you have a shellfish or any other type of allergy, email the manufacturer before you try any powders!

Thanks for all the help, everyone.
