Default Protein digestion and Farts???

Ok, I have read this everywhere across the net and I do not know what to believe. I have read, that if you get bad gas, it means you are not digesting all the protein and as a consequence you should switch protein until you find one that your body can absorb more easily.

Is there any basis behind this? Because if this is true, I have yet to find a protein that absorbs well with me. I have tried many protein powder....syntha 6, Muscle milk, 100% by On, Body Fortress, Designer, and many others and all give me gas unless I take very little quantity.

What is the truth behind this whole gas and protein. I think its crap, but want to know none the less. And what is it that with protein that makes one have the raunchiest farts on the planet. Damn, they damn near kill my wife!

Do those proteins have a commonality: like they are all the same type of protein?

lyle,

For the most part they are all whey protein isolates. I think the only exception is muscle milk and Syntha 6 which are protein blends.

I think you have identified the problem. some people don't handle whey well. especially if it still contains lactose in which case it's just flat out lactose intolerance.

So find something that doesn't use whey.

But I do not have any symptoms when I drink milk by itself. And I drink a lot of milk. Wouldn't I show similar symptoms?

Milk is a ~80/20 ratio of casein/whey, so maybe it's about enough whey you can handle.

You could try either replacing dairy protein with something else for a bit (egg, soy, pea, rice, whatevs), and see what happens.

You could also just cut out the protein powder entirely and see what happens.

You could try more or less fiber.

You could also just keep whining about it.
