Café au Lait Protein Wake-Up
jauburg says:

What protein powder can they have? thought they could not have soy Dietitian comment: Whey protein is usually lower in phosphorus and potassium compared to soy protein powder, but there is a big difference between brands and ingredients. Check with your dietitian for a list of the most kidney-friendly protein powder choices.
