Hi guys.

It seems hemp protein is going up in price quite a bit while pea protein (which has double the listed amount of protein as hemp) is now half the price.

I'm not sure if they two are different between the UK and US (due to your food laws and ours) though I wanted to ask if anyone has tried it? Thinking of switching due to the price.

Here in the UK we have a brand called 40+ which do a vegan protein consisting of pea protein, I really don't like it so won't ever switch to it. I use brown rice just because it's flavourless and I can mix it with juice

I am in the UK *points to tag and post* heh.

I really don't mind about the taste, really I don't think anyone buys protein powder for the taste (never found one that tasted good anyway) plus I mix mine with fruit and so on so it doesn't taste AS bad.

Rice, I don't want to eat too many carbs. I try to keep my carbs to one meal and one snack a day just because they go right to my gut which I have a hard time keeping off. The pea protein has less carbs, more protein and is about half the price of Hemp.

:oops: sorry!
Should have paid attention to that.

And that's fair enough, it's not that I buy the rice protein for the taste it's just that I found pea protein so gross that I would use a crap load of agave nectar or maple syrup to make it bareable ahha :D I'm just fussy, fair point with the ratios of carbs and proteins, the rice protein I get from the vegan section of myprotein.co.uk and it's 80 odd percent protein which is good enough for me 8)

Don't see why a guy who kills animals for TV is popular.

Hahaha Vega is the best tasting protein powder by far and its a quality mix of several proteins but its not cheap. Looks for deals and discounts, I know you can get some discounts off the main page here but its like 10% or something like that.
I like pea protein and hemp protein. I normally go with whatever I can get a deal on but I like to switch it up so I'm not always consuming the same thing all of the time.

Okay so my stuff arrived during the week and I had my first shake with it today.

Pea protein + fine ground oats + banana + Water....

It has to be the best tasting protein shake I've ever had, including the old flavored whey protein I used to have (before turning vegan).

It's like banana'ish porridge, sweet but not too sweet..

One thing I did find which annoyed me is an advert for vegan bodybuilding powder that said "Vegan diets are typically low in protein".. Says who?

To be fair most vegans I know have shockingly low levels of protein in their diets. Not helped by the fact that some pro-vegan literature you'll see seeks to make a virtue of this fact.

Regarding Bulkpowders, their customer service is terrible. Last few times I ordered it took ages to arrive & it's very difficult to get hold of them (they don't publish their phone number anywhere so I had to get hold of it on the grapevine). If you want decent cheap supplements & good service your best bet is http://www.ironscience.co.uk/.
