True protein change


Recommended Posts

I wanted to post this since I thought it was important. I have been using the gemma pea powder from True Protein for a year now. Up until recently the lable stated that sodium was 20 or 25mg for 30 grams. (about) I don't remember the exact number but it was reasonably low. I basically live on the stuff for contest prep. This morning I went to order 5lbs and now the label says that it is 600mg of sodium for a 30 gram serving. That is right 600mg! I confirmed this with the company that it is now correct. I don't know if it has been this way the whole time or there is a new formula. I just wanted to let everyone know since this is such a significant change.

Hi Paige,

Here is what TP sent me; looks like it has been that way for a while.



Yes, the nutritional info was recently updated with current information from our manufacturer- the 600mg per 30g serving is correct.

Here is a copy of the e-mail I received from TP this morning.


Good morning Paige and thanks for the e-mail, we recently noticed the odd amount when we were updating the nutritional profile based on our most recent batch. We assume it is a typo, and we have contacted the manufacturer for verification. Thanks again and we apologize for the confusion,

I hope so. I am getting to the point that I feel that I have nothing left to eat for contest prep. I am thinking that I am going to go back to basic fruits and veggies and give up on anymore of the processed powders and tofus. I just can't seem to trust what is in the products anymore.

Yes, I told them the old values and they are apparently looking into it. I have asked them to email me once they figure this out and I am also watching the site to see if there is any change in the nutritional chart on the gemma. I will post as soon as I know more. Trust me, I am sort of desperate for the stuff as it is one of my staples. Although I may just order the rice protein since it looks like a pretty decent alternative as far as the stats are concerned.

Here is the final word on this one:

Hi Paige,


We've checked again with the manufacturer of the Pea Protein, and the sodium amount listed is, indeed correct.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.


Now I am just depressed.

This is my mix; I last ordered on 9/2010. I still have around 10 lb. left. Looks like I will have to readjust my mix so I am not getting all that sodium...


what a bummer...it doesn't make sense why the sudden spike in sodium...wonder if it is a change in the processing?


The reason I went with this was to get the most "bang for the buck", as I do not have a lot of extra cash to spend on expensive protein formulas.

I have powder that I bought in December. I am not going to use it anymore. I just have 3 weeks until my next contest and I have no idea what I am going to do since that powder is most of what I eat. That and green veggies. Right now I am at a loss as to what to do.
