Are Orgain Protein Powders Low FODMAP?

Orgain is a health and wellness company that sells a number of protein powders. If you are on the low FODMAP diet, and you are looking for a protein powder, you might be wondering if Orgain protein powders are safe during the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet. In this article, we have analyzed Orgain protein powders and identified which are low FODMAP.

Orgain Protein Powder Overview

Orgain has four protein powder product categories listed below:

  • Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Protein Powder.
  • Orgain Clean Whey Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder.
  • Orgain Grass Fed Pasture Raised Collagen Protein Powder.
  • Orgain Organic Protein & Superfoods Plant-Based Protein Powder.

Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Protein Powder

  • The Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Protein Powder is 100% vegan and contains 21 grams of organic plant-based protein. It comes in five flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter, unsweetened, and chocolate peanut powder.
  • The product mostly contains low-FODMAP ingredients such as organic chia seedxanthan gum, and guar gum.
  • It also contains erythritol, which is also considered low-FODMAP. However, erythritol poses a challenge for people on a low-FODMAP diet, as it leads to fructose malabsorption, which could trigger Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms.
  • People on a low-FODMAP diet might need to limit their intake of erythritol. Click here to see recommended intakes.

Orgain Clean Whey Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder

  • The Orgain Clean Whey Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder contains 21 grams of grass-fed whey protein and only comes in the chocolate creamy fudge flavor.
  • The product contains both low-FODMAP ingredients such as xanthan gum and high-FODMAP ingredients such as inulin.
  • Inulins belong to a group of dietary fibers called fructans. They are known to cause serious digestive problems for people diagnosed with IBS.
  • People in the first phase of their low-FODMAP diet should reduce their fructans' intake, including inulin. After the first phase, they can check their product's tolerance to see if they are ready to add it back into their diet. Products with "high levels of naturally-occurring inulin and added inulin" should be avoided.

Orgain Grass Fed Pasture Raised Collagen Protein Powder

  • The Orgain Grass Fed Pasture Raised Collagen Protein Powder contains only collagen peptides as ingredients, which are low FODMAP.

Orgain Organic Protein & Superfoods Plant-Based Protein Powder

  • The Orgain Clean Whey Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder comes in two flavors: the vanilla bean and the chocolate creamy fudge flavor.
  • The product contains high-FODMAP ingredients such as apple pulp, green onion as well as ingredients untested for FODMAP content such as wheatgrass.
  • It also contains erythritol.

In summary, only Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Protein Powder and Orgain Grass Fed Pasture Raised Collagen Protein Powder are low FODMAP. However, Orgain Organic Protein Plant-Based Protein Powder contains the sugar alcohol erythritol, which could trigger IBS symptoms, even though it is low FODMAP. 

Casa de Sante protein powders are tested and certified low FODMAP. They are gluten, lactose, sugar, soy and sugar alcohol free. They are guaranteed not to cause gas, bloating, cramps or IBS symptoms.
