Ok guys I have blown up the internet hunting for a protein powder that is just protein no artificial sweeteners (including stevia). My body has started misbehaving when I take in artificial sweeteners, but I miss having my protein shakes. Any ideas?

I believe Sun Warrior Natural Blend might be completely sweetener free. They use cranberry's in the blend, and I don't think need as much sweetening. If there are any sweeteners in it, it isn't on the label. This is a raw vegan mix, so it isn't the cheapest, but other things in that category might also exist without sweeteners.

Garden of life puts out a raw protein without artificial ingredients and/or stevia. Usually the unflavored kinds do not contain stevia (biochem, designer whey, etc. are pretty good quality brands). I work part time at a health food store so we get asked this question a lot.
Just curious, do you just prefer no stevia or does that irritate you as well?

Wow, thanks for the info! Stevia causes a reaction too aaaand it usually leaves a weird bitter flavor in things so 2 fold reason for avoiding it. Super helpful posts I am so appreciative.

Pretty sure Boomers doesn't have any type of sweeteners if you can get it in the States, it's from New Zealand and it's really good quality

The only protein powder I know does not have any sweeteners is the unflavored kind like this

If you find one you like, let me know. We try to stay away from all artificial sweeteners. I've got a bunch of Complete Nutrition V-CORE stuff here to use up. It contains fructose, so if you're looking for something with "real" artificially derived sugar, rather than something in the "made from sugar so it tastes like sugar" family, then it works, but it's not particularly healthy. I used to use the all-natural, vegan, non-sweetened protein powder, but I got hives from it! Go figure!!!

Ah, okay! I'm sorry to hear you have reactions to so much! But yes, I definitely agree with you about the after-taste. I hope you find one that you like!:)

I use Isopure unflavored whey protein powder. I get it at the Vitamin Shoppe. The ingredients are: Ion Exchange whey(milk) protein isolate, Microfiltered whey protein isolate and soy lecithin.
May 29, 2013 1:33 PM look for the unflavored variety. They use FDA standards even though they are not required. Pharmaceutical grade protein with no additives.

Really old topic but thought I'd share my latest discovery. Really great tasting Protein superfood powder with no sugar or artificial sweetener. UK company called Marvellous Superfood have a Super Protein Powder, It's made with hemp and pea protein and has some other 'superfood' ingredients such as Maca and Goji. I think they ship worldwide. So happy I found this product it tastes great.
