Hi, I’m Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom
Bariatrics and today we’re going to discuss a few very helpful tips for bariatric patients.
Today I’m going to talk about some whey protein alternatives. So if you’re tired of your whey
protein powder, or you just can’t stand it anymore. Sometimes you develop an intolerance
to your whey powder, or if you’re just plain allergic to all things dairy, there are some
alternatives. You can actually look in to purchasing a plant-based protein powder. Lately
they’ve been becoming really delicious and creamy, not grainy like you think that they
would. So some of the best ones out there are still no sugar added or sugar free. You
can get chocolate, vanilla, strawberry. They’re getting very creative with the flavors just
like the whey protein powder companies. Typically you’re going to look for rice and pea protein,
sometimes just pea protein works. Sometimes You’ll see it with hemp, or rice, or pea protein
mixed. All of these foods together create complete amino acid chains. Thanks for watching.

Have a healthy day.
