Ripple "milk"


7 posts in this topic

Hi all. I just came across a new "milk" called ripple. It is pea plant based. 80 calories for 8 ounces. 8 G Protein 5 g fat and 0 carbs or sugar. The unsweetened tasted kinda yuck when I drank some but I squirted a tiny bit of liquid Splenda and it wasn't bad at all. I am trying to reset my carbs and sugar for a few weeks and this may be helpful and thought I would share. I use fairlife quite a bit but my grocery stopped carrying it and I need to find again.

I don't remember where, it could have been on my fitness/weight lifting forum, but I thought I read somewhere that pea Protein is not a quality protein and is really only suitable for vegans. That being said, it's better than a Yahoo I guess!

Aha! Found it:

One primary difference between whey and pea powders is that whey is a “complete” Protein, meaning that it contains all essential amino acids, and pea is an incomplete protein. Whey is a byproduct of cheese-making, so it is a type of animal protein as well as a dairy product -- and all animal Proteins are complete. As a plant-based protein, pea powder is a suitable choice for vegans, but it's missing some essential amino acids, so it's not appropriate to use as the primary source of protein in your diet.

It wasn't a question of quality, rather it isn't a complete protein. So you would still need to supplement it with something else. I have no idea what though. I know that rice and Beans together provide a complete protein, but you should be eating rice so that is out.

Thanks! I will probably use it as my coffee foam as it is supposed to foam nicely. We shall see. I will finish it out since it was pricey compared to milk milk

I just read a little more of the article, looks like there is more bad news:

If you have a history of gout, pea Protein may not be the best way for you to get more protein in your diet. Split peas are a source of purines, which can increase the amount of uric acid in your blood, potentially leading to a gout flareup. The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center suggests you limit your intake of legumes, such as split peas, to two 1/2-cup servings a week, which translates into about 1 1/2 scoops of pea Protein Powder a week.

Something to be aware of!
