Hey guys, long time user of Plenny here (been 4+ years already). To start, I LOVE Jimmy Joy and it has made my life remarkably easy for the past 4 years. Favorite one so far has been the active banana bag, in regards to taste and the nutrient profile.
However last week I received my last subscription shipment and found out that the recipe had changed to v3. No big deal I thought and started eating from the new v3 active bag. One day later I find my eczema to be as bad as it was when I was drinking milk (which I stopped because I learned I have a milk protein intolerance). It’s normal for me to have flare ups with the eczema, so I thought it will just pass. However a week later the eczema is in the worst state in ages and I have started noticing swelling in parts of my body. After looking at the v2 to v3 comparison and googling around for the changed ingredients I noticed rice allergy is caused by the same protein bands as milk allergy. Top suspect: rice flour.
So I’m now taking a break from the Plenny Shake and then eating it again for a time to confirm the allergy, but I’m fairly confident I might have to stop eating it altogether. Is there any way to bring the maltodextrin based shake back, or replace the rice flour with something else? I really don’t want to go back to making food for myself 4 times a day. I even took a look at the other brands’ powders and they are using brown rice protein which doesn’t sound good to me…
Anyways, hugs and love to Jimmy Joy peeps. I seriously hope I don’t have rice allergy but I’ll keep you updated.
