Brendan Brazier's 'Thrive' book doesn't recommend Soy or Rice protein isolate as it is deemed acidic. But he didn't mention Pea Protein Isolate. Is this any better?

I'm trying to find a happy medium between the Robert Cheeke and Brendan Brazier worlds (on a budget!)

As far as I know, almost all sources of protein are acidifying in the body. Meats, diary, soy products, fake meats, protein powders, etc. Pea could be different because it's extracted from a veggie, I don't really know, but I think it's a fair assumption to think it's acidifying as well....

As mentioned above, all proteins are amino acids (some lack essential ones, but thats another story) which are acidic. It is not necessarily a bad thing either, your body must keep an acid/base relationship within a given range . Furthermore, nitrogen is also released through the breakdown of proteins (roughly 16% give or take) and would have a ph in the acidic range.

Right.

Though keep in mind that just because something is alkaline or acid before being ingested doesn't mean it retains that property once metabolized.
