Greetings. I based my recipe on QuidNYC’s Superfood, but thought I would be clever and replaced the whey protein isolate with PlantFusion, which is a complete protein blend from plant sources. (The thought of getting my protein from cows pumped full of BGH and antibiotics is less than appealing.)
However now that it’s arrived I realize that it has way more sodium (390mg per 30g scoop). “No big deal,” I thought, “I’ll just dial down the sea salt.”
Sure enough dropping the sea salt to ZERO grams comes out about right, but low and behold the chloride content has dropped to almost nil.
When I was entering PlantFusion as a new ingredient I only input what I see on the label, which makes no mention of chloride. I went and checked the label on my sea salt, and it’s not listed there either.
Is it likely that PlantFusion has some chloride content?
