Maybe I can post the image, I saved that.

TrueProtein has the breakdown of each on their site as well. But I am not knowledgeable enough to use the chart to balance them. And I don't know how they taste together either so I was hoping someone else had blended the three and knew how palatable they were. At this point I am even debating whether using a protein powder that has isolated nutrients is the healthiest way to go. Health and vibrancy are more important to my long-term goals than seeing how big I can grow my muscles. And then there is the debate about raw vegan giving the body all the amino acids in a form it can easily use and combine to get its protein requirements........

I've been doing a lot of experimenting with vegan soy-free protein powders after years and years of not bothering with worrying about how much protein I was taking in. I've been a lot happier with my strength gains, although it's only been two weeks and I've been using a multitude of different products. So far, purely on a flavor scale, best to worst:

Vega (chocolate)
NitroFusion (also chocolate)
Veganique (chocolate again)
Vegan Complete (vanilla)
Plantfusion (vanilla)

(I live in the U.S. I see a lot of people here are from other places, so I'm not sure how available any of these are. Fortunately for me, I'm in the same city as Vegan Essentials, so I just order things from them.)

Some people don't want to use it because they get so much soy elsewhere in their diets. Others are sensitive to it. Still others are afraid of it.

I've tried the first one pictures, I think it tastes completely horrible.

I use a 50% gemma, 50% rice blend from trueprotein.com

i didnt like the gemma all that much BUT it was doable with extra water added as it got thicker them most other powders.
rice i forgot if i like or not i got a free sample i didnt remember hateing it.
been using them for 3 yrs now.
order like 25-50lb at a time (i wont tell you of what or you guys may hang me lol)
but i think there a decent company.
used the hemp it was ok i prafer it when i make smoothys out of frozen berrys, a banana, soem penutbutter, and fill up with rice milk blend its very nice the hemp.the gemma also but dont use too much or it will be more like puddinglol

Check out the current issue of Muscle and Fitness Magazine..it must be the May or June 2009 issue.

They have reviews of all kinds of vegan non-soy powders from Cranberry powder, to buckwheat powder, to artichoke powder, etc.

Great stuff!

The Muscle & Fitness is still on newsstands. It has a guy holding up some raw steak with "Eat like a man" text. BUT- They look at alternative protein powders and breakdown who they would be good for. Uniformly, they're all for vegans. Buckwheat protein got the biggest boost. First time I've heard of it. Hemp protein was recommended to NOT use before or after workouts, due to the high fat to protein ratio and fiber. Brown Rice protein was recommended, too.

The article says there's more recommendations online, but I couldn't find the link.

yeah and Buckwheat got more attention in a previous issue of Muscle & Fitness too, so something they seem to be promoting a lot these days!

Is Buckwheat such a new product so they're giving it more press? (so many things come in cycles...)

M&F is a good magazine, alas, it's reader beware. The freelance writers may
make mistakes, or prone to hype. (For Ex: their 2 parter on protein intake states that 1.5 ratio to body weight is okay, based on studies of individuals consuming less than 1 ratio. That .5 may just overdo the kidney. Maybe not, but extrapolating numbers from studies doesn't build confidence.)

They gotta fill pages. I almost bought the issue for the protein article alone. But I questioned their ratings of protein.

At least Thrive Diet is based on one individual's experience.
Does the revised edition still advocate hemp as much?

That nitrofusion looks good, but can anyone tell me how this is possible:

Total carbs: 9
Fiber: 2
Sugars: 9 (from fructose)

Is the label messed up, or do i not know how this is supposed to work?? :?

I've never seen it on a shelf, but it looks like it is worth a try, thanks!
