- The best plant-based, unprocessed protein
- Excellent nutritional profile; rich in nutrients and low in sugar and calories
- All flavors (vanilla, chocolate, etc.) are fully natural; decent taste
The flavor isn't quite as "natural" as advertised; and this protein is one of the most expensive on our list.
Function: This raw, unprocessed protein is made with all natural plant-based ingredients, making it an ideal option for those on a Raw Diet, Vegetarian/Vegan diet, or anyone who wants to “eat clean”. All of the ingredients are USDA-certified Organic, 100% non-GMO, and the protein powder is free of soy, gluten, and dairy. It’s the perfect protein powder for individuals with food sensitivies or on restrictive diets!
Nutritional Value: Not only does this plant-based protein contain 19 grams of protein per scoop (a tad on the lower end, but still enough for muscle-building), but you get 5 grams of BCAAs, 60% of your Vitamin C DV, and plenty of Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) for faster fat-burning. With just 100 calories per serving, it’s as good as it gets!
Features: Mix this protein in a blender or Blender Bottle, and you’ll find it’s smooth and easy to drink. The natural flavor may bring out the Stevia aftertaste, but you can’t help but love the rich raw cocoa flavor of the chocolate-flavored protein powder. It’s easy on your digestion, rich in nutrients, and great for a quick protein pick-me-up before or after your workout.
Price: This is one of the biggest downsides of the product. The price tag is $45, but you get just over 2 pounds. Still, if you can afford the higher cost, it definitely delivers excellent value in terms of nutrition and quality.
