I'm a trying to gain muscle and I just dont have the appetite to eat the amount of protein I need. I'm allergic to whey protein and I don't do well with egg protein either. Sometimes I use gelatin as a protein supplement but too much of it doesn't sit well. I've tried rice and beef protein powders too but I'm looking for something different. I want to be as healthy as possible and I'm curious what kind of anti-nutrients I would be ingesting if I took this potato supplement? Thanks!

well white potatoes do contain anti nutrients, i don't remember the name of them off the top of my head. Some people feel that potatoes are acceptable, while others don't. conventionally grown potatoes are typically subjected to a pretty large amount of chemicals when being grown, even if they are non-gmo.
that being said it looks like a decent protein powder. i don't think if there is another plant protein powder with that high of a percentage of protein. Its also a complete protein, not something to be too worried about if your also eating meat, but its still a good thing.
another alternative i could think of would be hemp protein. hemp seeds contain no phytic acid or other anti nutrients like other seeds. it would also be a complete protein, but the powder only contains 50% protein, and isn't the greatest tasting protein powder either.
