Dear Sproutman,  Really appreciate your book on Food Combining and have quick question.  How would you classify protein powders? Egg protein powder is easy. What about Pea protein and Rice protein?

Sproutein – A Sproutman Recommend Sprout Protein Powder available on

Dear Bruce,  The pea and rice protein powders are usually isolates. In other words, in that case they are an extract or a concentration of the protein in those foods. So even though the foods are not described as protein foods, the powders need to be classified as proteins in terms of their food combining.
