Nitrofusion, chocolate flavor. Look it up on amazon or bodybuilding.com. It's got a nice, thick consistency - more so than casein protein. And the taste is not to sweet or artificial.

I used to take sunwarrior as rice protein but after i've tried a tub of rawlicious i have a mind to switch, maybe someone else have tried them and have some advice?
Never tried Vega performace protein but i'm actually using the VegaOne shake and it's damn good!

I found sunwarriort revolting, I have tried several different brands, favours, sources, and.the best.tasting for me was flavored rice from a bulk seller, mixed with pea for amino spread, flavored pea is good also but has a slight bad taste to it, whereas rice is almost tasteless, 1 scoop of each with handful of ice, 135g frozen banana (about 1.5 big bananas), 2 cups soy milk blended to oblivion, very very palatable, using warrior or flavored proteins would spoil it
Also, generic soy protein is nasty

Vega sport is delicious and is the best for quality, but its expensive. Sunwarriors "warrior blend" is very good nutritionally, but has lower protein per scoop, and the pea protein in it can be overpowering. But im used to it. I love plantfusion, but im not a fan of the fructose in it, adds too many carbs while cutting. But those are my top 3. So most weeks I check my wallet and then buy vega sport, because then I dont have to buy glutamine as its already in there.

Mm, I steer clear of those premium proteins, they coat 3x as much as what I get from bulknutrients, and the ones I've tried were nasty, not to mention, most aren't sold in au

Its more about trusting companies like vega and sunwarrior for me personally. Because they care so much about what they put in their products, and they care about the vegan community as well. Truenutrition.com can also be good too for cheap bulk powder. I think you can get 10 lbs. of their vegan blend for what a tub of vega costs. They took forever to get my order shipped though. Two weeks is too long to wait for powder.

The only one I've ever used is MyProtein Vegan Blend. I have no basis for comparison, but I know it blends hemp, pea and brown rice protein so should be pretty complete.

Really, sometimes i had troubles to digest their rice protein

SunWarrior wrote:Sunwarriors "warrior blend" is very good nutritionally, but has lower protein per scoop, and the pea protein in it can be overpowering..

I use 2 scoop of them with a banana and avocado or coconut milk as preworkout or in the morning, really overpowering xD. It's a good alternative to the VegaOne nutritional shake!

I'm from Europe too so i have a mind to order some proteins from here (myprotein), what's your opinion about their product? There is also http://www.bulkpowders.co.uk that do a similar service but i never tried it!

Anyway as rice protein i would definitively suggest Rawlicious, is even a little cheaper then sunwarrior classic protein (about 5€)!

It's the only one I've used so can't compare really, but it's good service and the price is pretty good.

First post WOO!
I use the Vega vanilla protein powder...it's ok by itself, but if you mix it with the Vega Berry Recovery Accelerator and use 95% apple juice (I use local organic apple juice or Simply Apple...nothing made from concentrate) and 5% water, you have yourself a tasty post-workout drink right there.
I used to absolutely love the Beachbody Recovery Drink (ice cold, mind you) and when I went vegan needed something to substitute it with. I came up with this excellent concoction and really look forward to drinking it after every workout. It helps when I'm shaky after a heavy workout like Body Beast.
I've REALLY wanted to try some other protein shakes due to the cost of Vega, but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. I'm sure I'll break down and try Sun Warrior or Garden of Life soon just for a variety.
Stay healthy, my friends.

Does anyone have any opinions about Pure Green Protein by Vibrant Health? I looked at Vega, but don't like the sweeteners added to it.
