Why is everyone recommending True Protein? Their product pricing is great, but that doesnt matter because their shipping is ridiculous. A 1 pound 50% rice, 50% gemma powder cost me $5.03 with a promotional code, ground shipping? $10. No thanks.
If you know of a place with a better total price, why don't you share with the class?

I doubt most of their customers order a single pound at a time. 1 pound might cost $10 to ship, but 10 lbs cost around $16.

Even with your ridiculous example they're cheaper than GNC who want $16.99 for a pound of soy protein.

You're right, it's just I wanted to try the powder before I bought it on a large scale. Don't want to have to choke down 10 pounds of something I find disgusting. Don't have a blender or this would be less of a concern, I'm planning on mixing in water or unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Good luck! It's hard enough to eat protein smoothies with loads of fruit in them....

Really? What kind do you use? Pea? I've heard pea protein tastes pretty bad, but what could be bad about rice protein? People eat gluten straight as 'seitan' or 'mock duck meat'.

Does anyone here take MAP Master Amino Acid Tablets? What are your thoughts on it?

Here's the website: http://www.masteraminoacidpattern.com/char/index.php

Never heard of this MAP stuff before but it seems gimmicky. I wonder how many times they can mention that patent number on a single page.

I believe that straight amino acids are a suitable substitute for supplementing whole proteins, but I'm curious how this compares simply to BCAAs or EAAs. The abstracts for those references are pure junk, also curiously published by the same people.

I especially like this FAIL:
Quote:
8. Q: Are amino acids from animal or vegetable source?
Amino acids cannot be classified as either animal or vegetable. They are, simply, natural compounds.

I'd be interested in how the amino acid profiles of different foods compare with these sources, especially nuts and beans. What's better, for example, having a 20 grams of hemp or pea protein powder or eating beans or almonds?

You can look that up on nutritiondata.com.

Wow; thanks! That will keep me busy for a while. A couple of questions:
Am I reading this right that nuts are basically just a mediocre source of protein? I had always heard that they were a very good source.
Is the amino acid profile much better for raw than for frozen spinach? It looks that way. Freezing it is bad for the amino acids? What about bagged baby spinach?

Seeds seem to have a better amino profile;

Pumpkin seeds

Flaxseed

OMG! FANTASTIC POST. The greatest find was of www.trueprotein.com !! I totally flipped when I saw it. So excited now to order Gemma protein! And as for hemp's greater amounts of Tryptophan, I'm going to use hemp milk to mix it.. :D.. What a great website!!!!

Does the amino acid score indicate how "complete" the protein is? If so, am I understanding it right that many, many vegan proteins are more complete than ground beef? I guess I assumed meats were more complete.

There really should be a Quinoa protein, it is complete and has a lot of nutrients.

Btw, is there a True Protein discount code from anyone on this forum? It'd be cool if we could promote this forum by using the same code for all orders
