I have a teenage son that is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. He's a swimmer and I go to a boot camp class. I would like to find a peanut/ tree nut free protein powder that we can both take. Are there any protein powders that you can recommend?

Hello writer!
I've found that the UMP protein by Beverly is great AND has several flavors totally nut-free, tree nuts or peanuts.
It's available directly from Beverly or through Amazon at a decent price.

Quest makes three different flavored in protein powder. Totally free from nuts and soy. Don't order the Quest protein bars though, the taste is hard to get down. Their protein powders mix well in liquid and I also add it to many of my recipes so I know they are getting enough protein. Love the vanilla. Hope this helps. Karen

This is a great brand, especially for kids: https://nutracelle.com/pages/allergies
And I like that all of their products are totally peanut-free.
