I'm looking at alternatives to whey protein like Pea, Egg and Hemp proteins. I use MyProtein.com in the UK: any thoughts on the following products?

http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/pea_protein_isolate http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/organic_hemp_protein http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/egg_white_powder

Cheers

@kadesigns The peas in pea protein are absolutely a legume. What on earth made you think otherwise? Peas are in the fabaceae family like all legumes.

The peas in pea protein are not officially classed as a legume.

Would gelatin fit your needs?

Out of the proteins, I would go whey, beef/egg protein, hemp, and pea in that order. Vegetable proteins just don't hold a candle to animal proteins for protein cost/benefit.

Probably depends on his goals. He might want to be boosting protein levels for bodybuilding type activities without eating a ton of food.

Why not just eat more meat, fish, eggs, and other protein rich foods? The paleo diet is all about eating real, whole foods not processed powders.

Protein Powder is far, far, from Paleo.

I agree with getting real food in when you can but if you're in a bind I'd use a clean beef protein. There is a company called Ultimate Paleo Protein that uses grass fed, non-GMO beef as its protein source. Has a couple other ingredients as well (l-glutamine, mct powder, probiotics) for muscle recovery and protein assimiliation. Overall very clean, tastes great and is a good option for me when I don't have time for a meal.

I've replaced protein powder post-workout with little meat salads, about 150g shredded meat with salt, pepper, lemon. Vegetable protein offers so much opportunity for contamination, why bother?

Egg whites and powders are oxidized cholesterol.

Pea is a legume.

Hemp was historically used as a plant fiber far before then food. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp

These protein powders tend to be used by vegan or vegetarian people.

All are inferior to pastured meats and wild seafood but you could probably use them a few times a week.

The hubby and I used to use whey, egg, and pea powders but post-Paleo we can't stand the taste of them.

We prefer real food to powders!

I love Whey and the results I get from it; basically the only dairy in my diet but there's nothing that compares to it for muscle growth and recovery. Not for everyone but a Paleo approach with a little dairy has been proven effective for those wanting to perform athletically.
