Allergy Friendly Protein Supplements

Finding Nut Free Protein Powder and Other Allergy Safe Supplements

Finding nut free protein powder or protein bars without nuts can be next to impossible. The same is true for many of the other top allergens like egg and dairy. This can make the fitness journey difficult for anyone that has life-threatening food allergies. The goal of the Allergy Store is helping food allergic fitness enthusiasts to find the resources they need to get the most out of their workouts and lead healthy lives.

What to Consider Before Starting

There are a couple things that you’ll want to be aware of when selecting your workout supplements whether or not you have food allergies. You’ll always want to start by consulting with a physician before exercising and ask your nutritionist or trainer about what macronutrient goals to set. If, for example, you want to add lean muscle mass, you may want more grams of protein than someone who’s looking to cut.

In any case, a key component of weightlifting and other physical training programs requires protein for muscle growth and recovery. Two of the best ways to supplement protein found in regular food items is with powders and bars. The rest of this page serves as a guide for some of the best allergy friendly protein powders and bars available.

Protein Bars without Nuts

One of the quickest ways to recover after a long workout is with a protein bar. The advantage is that they’re quick, easy, and often quite tasty! The issue, however, is that finding protein bars without nuts or other common allergens is difficult. That’s because peanuts, tree nuts, milk, and egg are all great sources of protein. This makes them a staple in the majority of workout bars and other supplements.

And then there’s the issue of cross-contamination. Even when your allergens are not listed as ingredients, they’re usually used in the facility. The issue with shared supply chains in the sports nutrition industry makes it difficult to find safe-to-eat options.

We suggest going a step further than finding protein bars that omit your allergens. Instead, we recommend finding companies that actually manufacture in dedicated allergen-free facilities.

One brand that we work a lot with is No Nuts. As their name suggests, they are a nut free protein bar that are also free from egg, dairy, and gluten. Each bar includes 12 grams of protein and other healthy nutrients. They come in four flavors that are available through our site and have a variety pack option if you’d like to sample them all.
