A good one-a-day could cost me 20 bucks for a months supply, so shouldn't I just stick with the vega?
Even if you go to rip-off GNC you can find a 3 month supply of vegetarian multi for $18: http://www.gnc.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3244940

You should definitely take a sublingual B12 supplement regardless of vega or a multi. Aim for 1mg twice a week. I don't know about dementia, I think the first symptom of deficiency is loss of sensation in your fingers and toes, but by that point the damage is basically irreversible.

Re: Soy free protein powders

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this enquiry,

I found that using Soy powders gave me bloating and gas. I looked around for others and eventually purchased Garden of Life *Raw Protein* and *Raw Meal Replacement*.
My only problem with these powders is the the PRICE. I go through them quite rapidly and it gets expensive (VEGA is 64 bucks a hit).
I own a Vitamix machine with a grinder attachment for making flour. I have considered using it to grind dry lentils, split peas and maybe some beans to use as protein supplement.

Has anyone here tried doing this with good results? Is it safe to consume dry peas and legumes without cooking them?

Thanks for your time,
Chris :)

You can consume uncooked beans and legumes if you sprout them.
Not sure about non-soaked/sprouted.

Another alternative, if you can find it, would beHarmonized Vegan Protein. I try and stay away from soy and it's the powder I can get around here with the most bang for my buck.

I'd also be interested to know if anyone's had success grinding their own powder, though, because that would be ideal.

Cool I'll have to try those out next order. The biggest problem I have is their flavorings are weak and they didn't change that for these mixes.

this is a really interesting thread!
I leave in europe and I think the only store that will ship in Italy are myprotein and bulkpowder.
So my choice is limited to pea powder protein, brown rice powder protein and hemp powder protein. I have to exclude the pea's proteins because their taste is horrible... someone confirmed that in this topic.
So I'll buy the brown rice powder protein and hemp powder protein.. are they complete protein?
To obtain complete proteins, how or with what I can combine or mix these proteins?

My fav are Sunwarrior and Vega. Also like Garden of Life. These days I can have Shakeology too (yay vegan flavors) so I get that in as well.

I only really worry about adding extra when I know I'm super active...which I'm going to be over the next few months.

Does anyone know if sprouted bread has a better amino acid profile than regular?

I would recommend that if you guys go with a vegan protein powder (and I'm sure that's pretty much everyone on this board because we all need protein). You do a little bit of research about the taste. I've wasted way too much money on powders that I couldn't down.

The best ones I've found are hemp powders. They're easy to cover up in fruit shakes and it blends pretty easy. The best one I've found is the Nutivia hemp powder.

I would try http://veganproteinpowders.net, the dude gets a bunch of samples and posts up reviews of each one. Please do your research before dropping money!

HAHAHA I've got the exactly issue going on.
Allergic to soy. Pea tastes horribly. Hemp is only 55% protein. Brown rice last possibility! There are also online shops selling wheat protein. But I am consuming much seitan, which consists of wheat gluten. So, no option for me!

Anyone ever tried lupine protein concentrate?

i think we dont need extra protein powders at all. Hemp is terrible, and I dont even want to know what pea protein tastes like
and Fallen Horse: i heard sprouting makes wheat grain become complete protein... but should you really care? protein combining ... not necessary
