When you are following the Low FODMaP IBS Diet, at times, it seems that everything is off limits. The topic of FODMaP Friendly protein powders comes up quite often, so I thought I would highlight two of my favorite FODMaP friendly protein powders.
1) About Time Whey Protein Isolate- Unflavored
This is a great all purpose Low FODMaP protein powder that is 100% all natural. The protein is derived from whey protein isolate. In the process of manufacturing the protein, they remove all the Lactose– making it perfectly FODMaP friendly. In addition, it is sweetened with Stevia which is an all natural zero calorie sweetener. In my mind, this is what separates this Low FODMaP Protein powder from the rest– there are NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS! No Aspartame. No sucralose. All natural.
In addition to being a great source of protein– 25 gm per serving, this Low FODMaP protein powder supplies important essential amino acids, branched chain amino acids and L-tryptophan.
Finally, because it is unflavored, you can use it any way you like: add it to your bowl of oatmeal or yogurt in the morning, add a scoop to your favorite gluten free pancake or waffle batter or boost your favorite shake with a little protein.
2) Perfect Fit by Tone it Up
This is an organic plant-based protein powder that is all natural as well. The protein is derived from brown rice, so if you are following a Vegan diet and looking for a Low FODMaP protein powder, this is a great option for you. In addition to being vegan and gluten free, it is sweetened with stevia as well– NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS!
Until next time,
