What are the best types of protein for lactose intolerant women?

I am lactose "unfriendly" as I like to call it. I can not have whey protein because it hurts my stomach. I have tried pea and soy proteins that are dairy-free, but are there any other options and which are the best?

Hello Kelly,

Researching this question for you, I found many lactose intolerant individuals chose plant based protein shakes. Vegan protein powder was tolerated. The sources of protein came from hemp, peas, rice and alfalfa.
