I am allergic to dairy (whey), gluten, etc., so the only two protein powders I've found that I tolerate are hemp protein and rice protein.
I usually go with Vegan Rice Protein Powder because it's almost completely protein with almost no carbs or fat, and it has a pretty benign taste.
The Hemp Protein Powder has a stronger taste and has slightly more carbs in it, so it depends on your goals.
If I could stomach the Hemp without anything else but water mixed in, it would be the perfectly balanced 40-30-30 snack (if you follow that diet), but it really needs something else in it.
I don't remember the brand names for either, but you can buy them both at Whole Foods, and the hemp kind is available at most healthfood stores and coops. I think it is organic. The rice kind is not organic, which is its only drawback, IMO.
Oh I use a Rice Protien that I get from Whole Foods.. I have found it to be very good because it is basic and clean and is not filled with a bunch of flavors etc...
I would have to go look up the brand though but it has been the best one I have found that is readily availabe without ordering on line etc.
