I think pea protein tastes like ass!
I presently use both brown rice and hemp which I love.
I mix brown rice with chufa (a spanish milk made out of tiger nuts) and the hemp with passion fruit juice..mmmm!
I get them sent out to me in Spain and it still works out fairly cheaply..the brown rice is especially economical. I order them from http://www.myprotein.co.uk/
I like to take the rice at night because it fills you up more than the hemp...I think I digest the hemp really quickly and I use this after my workout. I'm really happy with the prices and delivery service offered my this company. I've bought from bulk powders uk before, but they take ages to deliver and apart from the pea protein which is vomit worthy, dont have much in stock for vegans.

Unfortunately I'm only 50% of my way through a 2.5kg bag (from myprotein.co.uk) and I only have a scoop a day. I feel like I'm punishing myself when I have a smoothie with this in it :vom: I'm either gonna start on sunwarrior or vega (if money permits - prob won't), or mix brown rice with my hemp instead. Can't wait to finish this crap!

Yeah the prices on myprotein are great! And they label what's vegan which is cool :D

i always mix my pea protein with soy protein, what works pretty well.

My friend actually vomited down his nose after taking pea protein!
Like I said, if you are gonna drink it, the best way I found to disguise the taste was with passion fruit juice, or failing that, pineapple. I bought 5 kilos and in the end made it into crackers which I ate with hummus ;)

can one buy chufa or the tiger nuts here in the states?

never heard of them but sounds interesting!

regarding the 1st soy-free protein powder pictured i find it has a weird aftertaste thats kinda foul imo, brown rice protein i find ok but a bit gritty?

buckwheat protein powder was/is amazing but i believe kemistry the one company that was making it discontinued it?

recently i heard of a cranberry seed protein powder, that robert mentioned earlier, but it only appears to be available in bulk to companies not individuals (so far).

plus you have spirulina from places such as veganproteins.com...

I don't know if you can buy chufa in the states, you could try in one of the stores stocking food for latinos. It's an unusual taste and you either love it or hate it. I only buy it because its very cheap at about 1 euro a litre. If you find it check the ingredients because sometimes they add cow milk, but not often. Its just usually tigernuts, sugar and water.

I've recently tried the brown rice and hemp powders. Specifically "Jarrow Formulas" brown rice protein and "Manitoba Harvest" hemp protein (both chocolate flavored). I really like them both actually. There is some sediment that separates in the hemp protein though. I'm not sure if I should go out of my way to get it out or not... anyway, these all mix wonderfully with soy milk :)

I tried jarrows brown rice like two months ago and now I'm hooked on it. It doesn't shake well but if I use a blender it comes out real nice.

I don't think it was that expensive. I don't remember honestly, I just picked it up to try. I'm going to look for it online though; I'm sure that would be cheaper than retail from Whole Foods.

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

If the fiber is insoluble (meaning indigestible) then perhaps they are using 'net carbs' for their number, i.e. only the carbs that add calories to the product...
