There was a post on this a week or so back.
I still consume Whole Foods Whey protein powder that contains Stevia, but I limit myself to between half and one scoop per day. My doctor does not have a problem with it. In fact, due to food aversions, it's been a major source of protein for me on many days. If you're worried, give your doctor a call.
mrs.mastro:I think it depends what brand and what the ingredients are. I used to drink one (I cannot remember the name), but it had all kinds of enzymes or something in it, so it was not recommended for pregnant women. I am pretty sure it even said that on the jar, so I would check yours or look it up online.
FWIW...most protein powders...and a lot of products in general will say they aren't recommended for pregnant or lactating women. A lot of times it's a general disclaimer to avoid any potential liability. I would just check with your doctor if you're worried.
I know this response is a little late but I just bought vegan one protien power bc it's all natural and the protien comes from veggies. It has stevia but that is a plant based sweetener. It tastes good and I don't worry that there is additives, soy or anything else that potentially could harm the baby.
