Gluten and Lactose Free Protein Powders

So in my current get-fit regimen, I realized I needed some type of recovery formula post workout. I always thought protein powders were for gym rats and serious fitness buffs, but realized that having a protein drink afterwards really helps keep my energy up, and takes the stress out of having to cook something or find food soon after.

Then came the eternal question - are there good, edible gluten and lactose free protein shakes out there??  Without the intolerances, it's hard enough to find a formula that tastes good.  Syntha-6 came highly recommended, but after contacting the company, I learned that none of their formulas are gluten free.

After much searching, I finally found what I was looking for: the ULTIMATE listing of gluten and (some) lactose free powders!  This site is a great resource in general, but I'm especially thankful that the author took the time to put this list together.  There are no reviews for the products, but at least it's a starting point in even knowing what to look up:


  1. Great post Tingaroo! You'll be drinking the Crossfit Koolaid before you know it. Check out Sun Warrior. It's highly recommended by people who know what their talking about. I'm not sure if it's lactose free though. Syntha-6 is also known for having a lot of soy protien; not a good thing for men.

  2. OOH thanks for the rec, Gary! I looked up the Sun Warrior product, and it looks like it's both vegan (lactose-free), and gluten free (rice-based). Can't wait to try it - hope it tastes good!
