I use the Fat Flush Protein powder in my smoothies. What's your opinion on it? I like it, but I am not sure if it's pure Paleo? Thanks ahead of time!

I love when someone writes the post you were writing, but posts it first. Well done, @Linds! :-) I would add two things. 1) guar gum is a FODMAPs type irritant (it really kills me, too, especially when they sneak it into coconut milk). 2) I'm not hot on stevia, but if you use it, then use the whole-leaf stuff. The hyper-processed white powder, often contains additives, and is ... processed. ;-)

IMO It's not paleo simply based on the fact that it says Fat Flush in the title :P

Ingredients: Pea protein concentrate, Rice protein concentrate, French vanilla extract, guar gum, inulin, and stevia.

Pea protein = legume (not paleo)

Rice protein = grain (not paleo)

Guar Gum = Primarily the ground endosperm of guar beans. The guar seeds are dehusked, milled and screened to obtain it. It has been addressed here before and personally I avoid it as it bothers my stomach.

Inulin = a dietary fiber produced from plants such as chicory root and Jerusalem artichoke. Inulin has minimal impact on blood sugar, and is considered a diabetic-friendly aid in managing blood sugar. Inulin is a soluble fiber often prescribed as a prebiotic to promote healthy intestinal flora. Conversely, it is also considered a FODMAP, a class of carbohydrates which are problematic for certain individuals.

Stevia = Stevia is an herbaceous family of plants, 240 species strong, that grows in sub-tropical and tropical America

You can read more about it here. Many paleo/primal folks use it.

Thanks so much for responding to my question, I appreciate it! I think I already knew the answer, but had read some blogs and recipes where some "Paleo-er"s use it... What is a good protein powder to use? Hard to find in my little town!
