Non-dairy Protein Powder



Recommended Posts

Hello, I am trying to prepare for surgery and am having trouble finding Protein powders that are non-dairy and include isolates, which my nutritionist recommends. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am having this same struggle. I can't tolerate whey Protein. Unjury Pea Protein is touted, but I thought it was SUPER GROSS. There's rice protein on Amazon. I love 365 Everyday vanilla Soy by Whole Foods, but they stopped selling it on Amazon and there's no Whole Foods near me.

whey isolate is made from milk, but it's a highly refined form and has most if not all lactose removed from it. Whey concentrates are bad for those looking to avoid lactose. When purchasing Proteins, if you have lactose sensitivity, avoid "concentrates" and stick with Isolates or even Casein (still made from milk but does not react the same way lactose does, if you are allergic to lactose you will more than likely not be allergic to casein, and vice versa).

Isopure has an unfavoured whey Protein isolate that is zero carb, zero fat and lactose-free...I add Decaf instant coffee to make shakes or add it directly to food (soups, yogurt, etc).

I also have Isopure's Dutch chocolate (0.5g fat, 3g carbs, zero sugar and lactose free) which I like specifically because it is NOT sweet. I've read some hate it for that exact reason though.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
