I would also pont you to check out http://www.trueprotein.com/
They offer the best bang for your buck bulk wise. You can customize ingredients and packaging even create your own blend such as pea and hemp protein. The only thing i dont like about them is that among their sweetening options they offer aspartame. Kinda makes me wonder how a supposed health conscious company can do business with aspartame makers Ajinimoto.
I was just checking out that site and it looks good. The prices aren't too bad at all.
I'm confused about some things though:
1. There's a lot of different choices under the flavors (unsweetened, natural, premium). Would the healthiest option to be to choose one of the "unsweetened" flavors, or does it not matter? And if I do choose one that's sweetened, I'm assuming stevia is probably the best choice then since it's natural right?
2. Which flavors of the pea/rice protein are good and are there any that taste bad that I should avoid? I know this mostly comes down to opinion, but is there a certain flavor that you've come across or heard about that is just disgusting and wouldn't see anyone liking it?
3. Which additives are recommended, if any? I was thinking maybe the enzyme/vitamin/mineral mix. Would that be a good choice, or is there a better option?
Sorry if these are basic questions, but I've been a long time user of just regular whey/casein/egg protein and I'm trying to go completely vegan, so I'm not sure exactly what I need.
Looking forward to hearing all of your responses.
