While the majority of our ingredients are legume free, our sunflower oil powder and organic pea protein powder are not. As with any ingredient, we can replace these two ingredients for you if they are suggested in your blend. Generally, we combine organic pea protein and organic brown rice protein in our vegan blends to ensure a nutritionally complete amino acid profile. If you cannot consume legumes, we can make you blend with organic brown rice as the protein source. Although it's still a good source of protein, it can taste quite gritty when by itself. If you want to go with this option, we would recommend mixing it in smoothies, other flavored foods, or used in baking!
If you have a particularly acute legume allergy, please note that our whey protein blends contain a negligible amount of sunflower lecithin. If you have enjoyed a chocolate bar or cup of tea before, you have probably consumed lecithin. Lecithin is found in negligible amounts in a wide variety of everyday foods. Lecithin is found in negligible amounts in a wide variety of foods ranging from chocolate to tea. Emulsifiers make it easy to mix powdered drinks, and reduces clumping for a smooth, easy-to-blend protein shake. Gainful's personalized protein powder blends contain a negligible amount (<1% by weight) of sunflower lecithin. Depending on how allergic you are, this may be a perfectly tolerable level.
