Yes: A pure protein powder has no fiber at all. There are many types of protein powder. If from soy make sure it is non-gmo soy. If whey try to find one from grass-fed cows not given hormones or antibiotics and processed at low temperature such as whey cool by designs for health. Protein powder from hemp seeds is another good choice though make sure it is a pure protein powder without fiber.
