Soy Free Protein Powder??

Just recently spent time searching for whey protein powder that doesn't have added soy lecithin to it. . . you guys know a good one?

Or what do you think about Whey protein powder that has soy lecithin added to it for the emulsification? Suppose if I'm avoiding soy, no soy means NO soy, none at all, right?

Jammer,

I was hoping the experts would arrive to answer this Q for ya. I'd like to know too.

I'm hypothyroid, so yes, technically I should avoid soy. But I'm eating my whey protein powder until someone tells me I shouldn't. (I eat about 2-3 Tablespoons per day, sometimes a bit more)

Unless, of course, I see major side effects/disadvantages.

I drink any protein powder that is made with whey. My protein powders do have the lectihin in it, but i believe it's minimal and I am adequently replaced.

How much are you planning on using. Most of your meals should be whole food.

Now Foods makes an unflavored whey protein with no soy products. 105 calories, 25g protein, 1g carb, .3g fat, Doesn't taste very good by itself, but you could add whatever flavor you like. They also make an egg white protein powder. Good brand to try if you are on a budget, too.

Well, from what I can see, Jay Robb brand doesn't have added soy. . I almost bought this at Vitamin Shoppe the other day, but it seemed expensive. Since I only use it a few times a week, it might not be that bad of an investment, though. He also claims it tastes really good, too . . . anyone tried it?

I'll have to double check, but I think Muscle Milk is another soy-free WPP?

Now Foods whey protein powder (not the isolate) does have lecithin in it (they just omit the word 'soy' in front of it).

I personally use ON and other brands that do have a little soy lecithin in them (this helps the product stay powdered) and have no ill effects at all from them. I suppose if someone had breast cancer (or an estrogen driven cancer) they might not want to use them, but I don't think there's enough in there to make a difference.

Check the Jay Robb label and see if it says 'lecithin' cuz that's soy...I'm allergic to soy and can use the protein powders that just have 'soy lecithin' or 'lecithin' in the ingredients list as long as it's not at the top of the list.

Netrition has a new tool called the Product Analyzer that can help: http://www.netrition.com/cgi/product_search.cgi

You can use this to search for protein powders without the ingredient "soy" or "lecithin" and all kinds of other types of product analysis.

Wow, that's great. Thank you Tom! That especially will come in handy for people with allergies (like me, lol).

I am using a milk and egg protein powder. Doesn't taste good on it's own, but mixed in something isn't bad.

Oops, guess I should have specified ISOLATE. That is what I have and I had to go back and look at the label after reading your post. The isolate does not have any soy products (at least that is what the label says) Thanks, I'll be more careful to be specific next time!

Heather, it doesn't really matter since the amount is so low...and I wish I could afford the isolate...I've tried it once (not that brand)....and it was the bomb! But, I can't afford the extra cost of it, so I'll stick with my Optimum Nutrition whey PP.

I drink Jayrobb all the time... it is absolutely AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about it... sweetened with Stevia (not splenda, etc.), no soy... just amaZing taste and everything

Samantha, thanks for your affirmation on JayRobb! How do you drink it? With fruit or just with milk or water?

I mostly add mine to food or shakes with fruit, so I'm less concerned with taste, but more with pure, quality protein with no added sugar, soy, etc. and also lower price.

Just water... I mix it with a few tablespoons of warm water just to make sure it all dissolves, then I add cold water & ice and I stir. It tastes like a crip chocolate milk. I don't like the vanilla nor strawberry, but if you were adding fruit etc. to those flavors they may be good? I'm going to try his eggwhite one, too... less carbs and lactose-free... but the whey is amazing in chocolate!

haha crip = crisp... like a lighter chocolate milk, depending on how much water you add.

Soy = Estrogen

I wondering why they would put this in muscle building supplements?

I have stopped buying protein powders back since news of all this. It wont help me at all..

But please, someone let me know when a good supplement company brings out dollar for dollar value that we pay for.. That means no soy, no Aspartame, no sucralose.

here is another link to what they put in.. Where we are taken advantage of for our dollars.

Sucralose Side Effects

Soy Free Protein Powder

I checked all but one of those suggestions, and they all say they contain soy or soy lecithin in the ingredients/warnings on the label.

Also, the nutrition analyzer link listed several choices that, upon examination, actually did contain soy or soy lecithin, even though I asked for a search of only products that didn't contain either term.

Anyone know of a whey protein product that really is soy/soy lecithin free?

The product only contains 4 ingredients: Cold Pressed Ultra Micro-filtered Whey Isolate, Natural Flavors, Xanthan Gum, and Stevia. The warning is on the label because the product is manufactured in a plant that processes soy products so they must include this allergen warning on their label.

Has anyone actually finally found one? I checked out the Now Protein Isolates, and it contains soy.

I found one at Whole Foods. However, it is a rice protein powder, not whey. I have not found a whey protein powder without soy (lecithin). Anyway, the rice one tastes just fine and has a decent amount of protein. Whole Foods had several different brands....hope this helps someone!

Whey protein powers

I have looked everywhere for Whey protein powders without Soy in it.. They are hard to find.. But I know that DR. Mercola does NOT like Soy ingredients.. in his food... So he does have a Whey protein drink, with No Soy.. But has Sunflower Lecithin in it.. what ever that is.. But it is pretty reasonable..
My Naturepathic dr.. said also the Hemp protein drink, or the Bean Protein drink powder.. But I don't know how they taste though..

Earth Fare

I've been using Earth Fare's "Show Me The Whey" product. It is free of soy, rBGH and artificial sweeteners. I've yet to find another product which is free of the things. It mixes good in room temperature water, with just a few grains left on top. I have the Chocolate flavor (natural) which tastes good, even straight from the can
