For anyone in the know - I've been hearing varying stories about protein powders, and I do enjoy making a smoothie some mornings and have used a whey protein powder these past few months.

I was browsing through a woman's magazine, and in it there's an eating/diet plan that calls for a Rice protein powder smoothies.

Does anyone know which one has a greater benefit - and what rice will do that whey may not and vice versa?

I'm usually clueless with this stuff.

Thanks!

I don't know about rice protein but when I started to look into taking protein powder, I bought the soy protein and found I was quite bloated. A friend who was a bodybuilder told me to get whey protein which doesn't cause bloating and is better for absorption. So I switched to whey protein, and the bloating problem stopped.

Hello bkgirl! Laughing

I agree - I don't get bloated with the Whey either, and I've been happy with it. Then I start reading about Rice Protein powder and since I'm almost out of the Whey I think maybe I should try it....I didn't know if it had more of a nutritional value than the Whey - maybe John Hill will see this and answer for us.

Thanks Laughing

hmm I would never have considered rice as a source of protein... we use whey in our house.

I use whey but only from animals that haven't been treated with antibiotics and growth hormones. I heard that the whey process makes those things worse, but I don't recall details.

I also use soy and like it a lot. Never had troubles with it.

I use a whey protein isolate that comes packed in individual portions. It's easy to bring with me & never needs any pre-measuring. I use it in smoothies & orange juice or stir in with yogurt or cottage cheese. I guess that I have been taking the same product for about two years now & I love it. I can tell the difference when I skip it although due to the cost, I'm wondering about taking it every other day for a while. Anyway, my vote is for the whey!

hey is also fare superior to soy and other lower quality proteins such as rice, beef, and wheat (which are similar to soy protein).

I like Whey protein powder. I mix it with flax meal, some oats, Cinnamon, a bit of Splenda and water and Zap and is a very good high protein brekfast hot cereal (also put a bit of cream on top.

I do not find the soy powder as useful due to taste and texture but I do use it a bit in baked goods.

I do not use the rice ones because they are not as pure protein and tend to contain sugars and I avoid sugar.

I've read that whey protein isolate is superior to just plain ol' whey protein. Ruth, this product sounds very enticing! What brand is it, and where do you purchase from?

Thanks!

The brand that I use is called HMS90 in Canada. I think that it's called Immunocal in the States. I get it shipped automatically each month from Immunotec.com.
A friend of mine in the medical profession searched high & low to find what she considered the best product line to have in her clinic. This one won hands down! Smile
