    I'm not being a **** I'm stating fact, if you think whey contains crushed pig bones, you are an idiot, trufax
    Whilst the whey doesn't some weight gaining products do contain gelatin as a thickener which can have pork as a source. I'd agree it's something that should be explained to the father but this may help shed some light on where the confusion is arising.

    Very rarely (if ever). Thickeners aren't particularly necessary because dumping large amounts of dry powders into a liquid has a similar effect.

    There is a much greater demand for emulsifiers (eg; potato starch, soya lecithin, etc) which help to prevent the powder clumping.

    I was fully ready to argue this point to the death, then I went and had a look at the things I was talking about and realised I was looking at capsules

    So yeah OP your dad is a bit of a mug sorry, but so am I so that's okay

    I believe there is such a thing called Egg Protein powder. Though, I'm not entirely sure. Imo, I think large amounts of fish could cover your protein needs.. unless you need like 200g of protein a day.
