Paleo friendly Protein Powder Europe

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 02, 2013 at 9:35 AM

Hi, I??ve been reading a lot of posts about paleo-accepted, paleo-friendly etc. protein powder, since I??ve been thinking to include a protein shake after my work-out. I do crossfit 3 times a week and and follow the paleo diet.

After all this reading, I??ve come to think PaleoPro , SFH and SPN are good choices, but only the first one is shipped to Europe, and the price of the shipment is actually higher than the product itself.

Does anybody know any similar products (paleo-friendly, organic, grass-fed, or similar) available in Europe?

Thanx

I think the anti supplement jive is hippy bullshit at this point.

Is it paleo? No, but neither is heart surgery or wearing hoodies. We shouldn't ask did paleolithic people take whey protein, we should ask the following:

Does whey protein supplementation have benefits?

Does whey protein add protein to a diet with little to no side affects for dairy tolerant people?

Is whey protein more bio available than beef chicken and eggs?

Is taking whey protein easier to do straight after deadlifting 455lbs tyhan going home, cooking chicken and eating it or eating cold gross chicken in a container at the gym?

Are you aiming to perform better than skinny hunter gathering ancestors did? Did cavemen squat 600lbs, if they did would they of liked soem whey protein after?

If you tolerate dairy, quark is a great way to get extra protein. Available in central Europe in grocery stores.

Carlos, to answer your question directly.

It really depends on the fat content of the whey protein you are purchasing. The protein (amino acids) are not effected whether the cows were grass-fed/organic or not. The choice in purchase is more about what else comes along with those proteins (flavouring, sweeteners, etc) or of an ethical one, that being are you contributing to good farming practices etc.

In the UK I bought PinkSun: Whey Protein Powder (Grass Fed, Hormone Free) before I read up on the subject. Once I finished it I haven't bothered to buy any more. If I was going to buy again I would probably go for one from: http://www.bulkpowders.co.uk/, but honestly it seems to matter little really. In the end I actually found I was eating enough protein, and since I work out in the evening I was having a full dinner straight afterwards.

Why do we eat grass-fed meat and milk? Grass-feeding can affect the fatty acid, antioxidant, and micronutrient content of meat and dairy in a favorable way, but not the amino acid profile. Whey protein is about the protein – the amino acid profile. And the amino acid profile of grass-fed whey protein is identical to that of grain-fed whey protein. You could make an argument based on ethics if you want, but if we’re talking strictly nutritional content, the two are indistinguishable. - Mark Sisson.

Skip the protein powder and just eat real foods. If you tolerate dairy, eat some no sugar added yogurt after a workout for the placebo effect. For most (99%) of people, dietary protein is more than enough to sustain muscle growth, and any extra will just tax the liver and kidneys to process it. I am not recommending cutting back on the amount you consume, but just eat your protein rather than drink it and you will save money and get plenty.
