    Easily digestible proteins

    I am doing a 24 hour mountain bike race next weekend and I need to bring some protein sources that are gentle on the digestive system. The races tend to wreak havoc on my innards, so I need to eat protein that is gentler on the stomach. Any suggestions?

    There are like 17 diet mods here, so I am expecting good feedback from them.

    Whey and egg whites are the fastest and easiest digestable proteins.

    Are you looking for quick absorption or just easy on the belly?

    Are you lactose intolerant?

    Thanks. Egg whites aren't really an option since I'll be camping out all weekend. I do have whey on my "to bring" list.

    I'm more concerned about the protein being easy on my stomach.

    I am indeed lactose intolerant, which sucks because I love Fruit Loops.

    You can take some packets or containers of Amino Vital (either/or: liquid or powder). Are you going to be eating the protein while riding? or while camping, pre/post ride?

    If you're riding, you're better off taking in primarily carbohydrates, with SOME protein (amino vital is the better choice). If you're taking the protein while camping, then maybe consider taking some POWDERED egg whites (won't spoil, and there are no eggs to crack), or some unopened cartons of Papetti's Egg Whites or Egg Beaters Egg whites...

    I'll only be drinking water and an electrolyte drink during the race. The protein will be pre and post-ride. It's a team race, so I won't be riding the entire time. I need to eat during my rest periods.

    yeah, but it's not going to be very hot and we have coolers! And you said Doug was bringing a stove!

    Gotcha! Go get some Pea Protein then. There is a brand for now called Pure Advantage, they sell a protein made from yellow peas. It's a complete protein too with all essential amino acids. It's easy on the stomach, contains no dairy, no artifical crap in it. Don't get the vanilla though, trust me lol. I'm can't drink whey anymore due to allergies and stomach problems and Pea protein is allergen free and so by far the easiest protein on your stomach.

    You may want to reconsider whey if you are lactose intolerant. Most whey still contain some lactose.

    Even so - during the ride, you can get some carbs in your water/electrolyte drink.

    Jodi's pea protein (pre/post meals) is a great idea. i keep forgetting that stuff exists even though she talks to me abotu it all the time! hahaha!

    How does pea protein taste. Forgive me but it sounds absolutely revolting.

    At first its an aquired taste because you don't know what to expect, but it's pretty good with the right flavoring. Don't get vanilla lol.

    Pea protein, eh? I'll check it out. I don't care how bad it may taste. I NEED to get some protein into my system without getting sick.

    FYI, here is the electrolyte replenishment I'm using: http://www.eletewater.com/
