Trader Joe’s Brands Include Unique Products for Folks with Food Allergies

Having found out I was allergic to soy, I began my mission to search for a protein powder that had no soy. This was no easy deed, I looked through all of my containers of it, and there biggest day, was a listing of soy in the ingredient section for each one of them. I was pleasantly surprised one day while shopping at Trader Joe’s to find a protein powder containing no soy called Trader Joe’s Hemp Protein Powder. When I looked at the ingredient and nutrition label, this is what I found:

  • 130 calories per serving
  • No saturated fat
  • 9 grams of protein
  • 500 mg of Omega 3
  • 10 essential amino acids
  • It is also gluten free!
  • It is soy free!
  • Low in sodium
  • High in iron
  • High in dietary fiber

Anyone who has suffered from food allergies knows it is no fun. I believe Trader Joe’s Hemp’s is great for those allergic to soy or gluten or for those who just want to see if it may make a difference in their life.

This powder’s taste does take some getting used to. I do not know if it is the absence of the soy or the gluten, but it definitely has a much grittier texture than most powders I have used. I have tried the chocolate and the vanilla flavors, and the chocolate really does not taste like chocolate but it okay. I do like the fact, though; that it has a small list of ingredients in comparison to some others (that taste like candy).

I was also taken back a bit by the amount of protein per serving in the Trader Joe’s brand of Hemp Protein Powder in comparison to other protein powders. This one only offered 9 grams of protein per serving while many protein powders now offer 15-25 grams of fiber per serving. Because I like this product so much, I just mix it together with things like natural oatmeal or yogurt ( mixes well with creamier items) to make up for the protein it lacks.

Trader Joe’s has so many great products and such great customer service that if you have a specific need in regard to foods or drinks just ask and they can probably help you. Their food categories include gluten free, kosher and vegan.
