I decided to buy this product because I was unhappy with the amount of toxins (artificial colours, preservatives, sweeteners etc) that I was putting into my body from Normal protein powders. I wanted a protein powder that was as healthy as possible that did not cost the earth or contained any meat or dairy products (Vegan protein). I wanted it to be organic (Antibiotic, Insecticides, Pesticides & Herbicides etc free).
I was alarmed to hear that 90% of soya worldwide was from USA and that 90% of that is Genetically modified (GMO). Soya is one of the best proteins to take because it's 90% protein and it has an amino acid profile score of 100 (contains all the right amount of amino acids in the right proportion). Vegan-wise, only Hemp can match this, however the downside with hemp is that it contains only 45% protein with around 12.6% fat (albeit healthy fat), 21% fibre and about 15% carbs (albeit slow release carbs ).
This product is 100% natural and ticks all the desired boxes on paper.
The price was reasonable given that Hemp protein & Brown rice protein were far more expensive whilst Pea protein was exactly the same price which I also bought at the same time. (Refer to Pea protein comment at the end of this review)
When I prepared the product for the first time, I used a pint glass and a large spoon and added 40g of it to cold water (about 36g protein in 40g product with fat & carbs content being extremely low). It did not mix very well and I ended up with an unmanageable paste which I did not want to eat. The taste was exactly what I expected; Soya! (Yukkk!!). Not very tasty on its own I'm afraid.
My second attempt at making a protein shake from it was much better.Read more ›
