I'm a really big fan of the NitroFusion brand. It has 25g of protein (Pea, Brown Rice, & Artichoke), it's good to mix with water or almond milk, and it's soy free. I already tried the Vanilla flavor. I'm going for the Mocha next.


I swear by that protein, although I am looking forward to trying the SunWarrior Rice protein and getting my hands on some hemp powder (not easy to find in Australia).
Soyfreewarrior, I found mocha to be my least favourite, preferred van. choc. and berry personally

I just tried the Mocha and it's not too bad, in my humble opinion. It's somewhat similar in taste to the Vanilla.

This is from Carl at www.trueprotein.com.

"none of the flavor systems we currently offer contain any animal byproducts, so you should be safe to use any of those materials! Thanks again and have a great week, -Carl"

I just wanted to put that out there. This site is pretty awesome in that you can get exactly the type of protein you are looking for (except no raw/organic options) and the prices are really good. I have so far only ordered straight gemma pea protein isolate and have mixed it with my previously purchased brown rice protein and soy protein. I am still in the process of lowering my soy intake. I haven't tried any of the flavors yet, but they have a forum in which people comment on the flavors. They have an Orange Creamsicle flavor I'd like to try.

Hey Joel,
I'm located in australia also i just had a quick question.

Where do you buy your nitro-fusion from?

I bought some from bodybuilding.com not long ago and the service was great but i'm keen on trying to find it for less than what i paid ($AU110 ppd).

Cheers mate.

I'm for Nitro-Fusion it's great. I like the chocolate. It goes great mixed with cold coffee and rice milk. Need my morning wake up. Or you can do 1 scoop Nitro Fusion, 1 scoop Vega berry flavored, a banana, some frozen blueberries, and ice cubes. Yum.

Thank you for sharing this. I am wondering how to figure out how much of each protein source to have in mix. I am blending rice protein, hemp protein and pea protein. Have never had pea protein so I don't know how strong it tastes. And I usually just get vanilla flavor as I will probably only use it in a smoothie or with almond milk.

I just started doing a raw vegan diet with green smoothies as the mainstay but am really concerned about the protein levels as in the past I have done best on high protein low carb style diets.

I would really appreciate input from someone who has "been there, done that" and learn from their wisdom and experience.

Thanks!

Did you mean supplemental sources?
I would personally like to try hemp, pea and rice as a blend, even just adding hemp to the Nitrofusion or Sunwarrior or something.
As far as how much protein to take, I think 1 gram per pound would be more than enough, coming from foods and protein powders combined

I am trying to combine rice/pea/hemp proteins in a supplement via http://www.trueprotein.com and wondering what percent of each to have in the custom mix. Rice and hemp taste fine to me but I have never had the pea protein. And I am wondering what the best ratio is of the three as to complimenting amino acids.

Someone just posted on this like 2 days ago and put up a comparison chart. I forget who it was, and I cant find the post by searching it out. Was it Troy...?

Maybe I can post the image, I saved that.
