I've used both of these.

Naturade Veg Protein Booster is vegan and soy free. The amino acids are complimented and balanced to be a complete, high quality protein. It even has vegan centric supplements in it:

http://www.naturade.com/Naturade-SOY-FR ... z-p81.html


Another good alternative is protein powder extracted/made from brown rice. Brown rice is hypoallergenic. Protein from brown rice will also have the amino acid strengths of grain proteins. Since most of the protein in a vegan diet is from legume protein, brown rice protein powders will balance out the protein vegans consume from the food. They will get more total protein as well as more of their protein complimented ( made complete )

Thanks for the info. I use powders when cutting so I'll give this one a try!

Hey Richard or Syr Linus;

I like my stickies can locked, so can you go ahead and lock this thread?

I just made the sticky so I wouldn't have to keep looking up this URL every single time someone asked about soy free protein powders.

Thanks

Why do you want it locked and not have a stickied thread with suggestions from others?

I've tried the first one pictures, I think it tastes completely horrible.

I use a 50% gemma, 50% rice blend from trueprotein.com

Ditto on not locking this. I appreciate reading other's opinions. I don't know why we would need a single sticky that singles out only one non-soy powder.

I haven't tried the naturade stuff, but the Vitamin Shoppe version is awful. The gemma and rice proteins from TP are good, but you still need a lot of other things (fruit, etc.) added in to make it palatable.

I have to add, this does taste, not great. I will try the TP one too! Thanks for posting this.

I used to take protein shakes made from soy protein powders but when I realized I'm getting loads of soy protein from my food already, I moved to rice- and pea-proteins. The latter can be ordered from bulkpowders.co.uk and I can really recommend it, once you get over its taste (but that applies to practically all protein powders, doesn't it?).

I agree cbob3000, pea is good.I actually like the taste, while my family have tried it & think it tastes horrible!

I get mine from myprotein.co.uk, the stuff you are getting looks to cheaper by £4.00 a kilo, which is quite alot.I may try it.

I get a rice and pea blend from trueprotein.com. I get them sweetened with stevia, and love them.

Hey Everyone,
I just recently started using the Gemma Pea Protein from True-Protein.com, and I was wondering what percentages/mixes other people like. I was thinking I would want to mix Pea and Hemp (which I used to use, but is expensive on its own). I'd be into mixing Pea, Hemp and Rice. Does anyone have a mix they like?

Also, which flavors/sweetening do you guys add? (if any)

well done endcruelty! I've taken a lot of this stuff in my time and it was never soy free. This is why the sticky should not be locked.

A lot of "veg" protein is pretty much just soy, this certainly demonstrates the need to check labels. I'm a trueprotein consumer now. Good products.

I'm a really big fan of the NitroFusion brand. It has 25g of protein (Pea, Brown Rice, & Artichoke), it's good to mix with water or almond milk, and it's soy free. I already tried the Vanilla flavor. I'm going for the Mocha next.
