Firstly, thank you Amazon for your usual flawless delivery.
So, I’ve been shopping around for a quality organic whey isolate powder for a few months. I was drawn to this one due to its cold filtration system which is said to preserve more nutrients in. This provides a higher quality protein source and, as it closely resembles protein in its natural form, makes the nutrients more bio-available. I like the concept.
Ok, packaging - nice quality. Has high quality velcro style grip sealing tape (the sort that doesn’t clog with powder on the first use!) - good! Going well so far.
Powder - good consistency -no ultra fine powder spewing out the bag when it’s first opened to inhale. No strong synthetic flavouring odour - excellent.
Mixing - smooth consistency, very very easy to mix using a shaker with a simple mixing ball and with 300ml of organic Almond Milk. Thick enough, with a creamy tide mark left around the rim of the cup and smooth foam - great!
But! Where is the taste? I was loving the idea of the almond milk blending with the Madagascan vanilla but it was very absent. It closely resembled a plain protein powder. Still palatable - but I wanted a vanilla shake!
So - maybe I have a poorly settled bag, or just a batch lacking the flavour. This could be five stars all round if the flavour is addressed!
Price? Well, if you’re shopping organic, you are already accepting of the higher price in the hope it means higher quality. This is a good drink, but just let down by the lack of the flavour. Sadly, therefore, I’m going with three stars for value as I want that Madagascan smoothness please!
