Best Protein Powder for Least Farts

I know that the lactose that comes with whey protein can cause farts.

I also know that whey isolate is better than whey concentrate, and causes less gas.

I haven't bought protein powder in years until recently....just bought what was cheapest at Costco, kind of a saw it so I bought it purchase without any research.

That was Muscle Pharm Combat Protein https://musclepharm.com/products/com...otein-powder-2
Holy shiznit. The gas it caused was ferocious....and noxious....probably toxic....no need for a fumigator at the house as I've killed all the termites myself. The smelliest farts ever. Still have half a 5 pound bag left, probably gonna toss it. Quantity and smell probably due to there being more concentrate than isolate.

Then tried Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard https://www.optimumnutrition.com/en-...0-whey-protein
Much easier on the quantity of gas and less smelly, but still causing some gas. Quantity of isolate is higher than concentrate. Weirdly and inexplicably, it seems to stimulate my appetite as well.

Trying to dial everything back in again but hadn't used any protein powders at all for probably 20 years. Are there other types of protein powders I should consider besides whey that aren't so prone to cause gas? There are so many kinds and brands on the market these days it's hard to know. Vegan powders, soy, egg, etc.

The goal here is to build quality muscle....I can put up with some gas if necessary, but not the kind that gives you *giant* farts every 5 minutes that smell so bad you have to go outside to do it. No pain no gain.

So....what do you use/recommend? This totally sounds like a newbie question, but those MusclePharm farts were unbearable and I'm stuck in analysis paralysis. Protein is also more expensive these days and would prefer not dropping a ton of money experimenting with too many different brands/types.

Iíve never gotten gas from protein shakes so I canít comment on that aspect. Optimum Nutrition mixed in water has been my choice for years because itís the only one that taste good, mixes smooth and goes down easy. Some are too sweet or too thick imo

I think straight isolate removes most lactose and is very digestible for most. Concentrate is rough for many. One could power a small city with the farts from many folk with cheap protein powder.

Isopure goes down super smooth but is $$$$

My gas comes from what I mix it with. I moved to almond milk and started taking pro-biotics with the shake. No issues now.
