I am struggling with this very issue now. I want to go on a detox program that utilizes protien powders in the nutritional portion of the program. Thus, I am doing all of the research I can to decide whether to attempt utilizing any form of protein powder. The only mention I have seen in any of the literature regarding MAOI's and protein powder is a reference to whey protein powders in a single study, without any explanation as to why it is prohibited.

Tyrosine is the amino acid in protein, that through decarboxylation (which generally occurs due to aging or spoiling) becomes tyramine. Tyrosine, however, is NOT tyramine and, as long as it is not spoiled should present no problem.

I think what I have personally decided to do is to try Rice Protein Powder, which contains no whey and no soy. As with anything that presents a risk, I will try it in very small amounts first to see if there is any reaction at all. I'll report back on what I discover.
