    Ancient Grains Protein Powder

    Hi all,

    I know that grains are (obviously) off limits and I try to avoid them as much as I possibly can, but I just have a question about protein powder derived from grains (specifically one made from quinoa, millet, amaranth, and brown rice). Are the harmful effects of anti-nutrients, lectin, phytates and gluten still as prevalent in this protein powder form? Or are they even more prevalent? I guess I'm wondering just how harmful grains are in this form.

    Thank you!

    Thank you! Yes, I do also worry about nuts/nut butters...it's hard because I love them so much

    I would eat it, since it's mostly protein powder, but that's just me. *Shrug* Is it as good as whole food protein sources or even whey protein? Nope. Is it PALEO? Nope. Is it bad? Not really.

    Also, I don't think any of those grains mentioned have gluten in them. They're all considered gluten-free grains (and quinoa is technically "not" a grain). List of Gluten-Free starches: The Gluten-Free Diet | NFCA

    If you're worried about lectins/phylates you should probably worry more about all of the nuts/nut butter you consume than gluten-free grains. PLUS, ancient grains protein powder is made from SPROUTED GRAINS, so there's even less worry about those anti-nutrients, etc.

    Looks pretty clean to me. http://www.nutritionhouse.com/organi...l#.VLrIzivF81Y

    Hahaha I kind of thought that might be the response I'm not thrilled about the thought of putting it in my body!

    Someone bought it for me to use in smoothies, not knowing that I am mostly Paleo, and I feel quite bad not using it. I guess the only reason for me taking it would be to please this person (bad reason, I know)
