As a health enthusiast and athlete for many years, I've supplemented my diet with various types of protein powders. Due to a number of food intolerance recently, I transitioned from whey and isolate protein powders to plant based powders that were easily digestible, non-irritating to my GI and were sourced from minimally-processed natural ingredients. Even with all the options available on the market these days, there wasn't one product I absolutely loved enough to write a review until now. I purchased Aloha's vanilla protein powder after thoroughly researching the company and its business practices. It was important for me to know what I was buying, where it came from and how it is produced. The criteria I used in determining my purchase included whether the product was free of pesticides, if the manufacturing process retains its nutritional quality, the nutritional content, if it contained artificial flavors, heavy metals, etc. Overall, it was a question of quality over...
Obviously a bunch of protein powder amateurs are reviewing this one... I have to address the majority of negative comments I've seen.
>Don't dump the packet on top of sitting cold water and try to stir it in, or pet your dog and put your quiche in the oven while it turns to cement. Use a shaker bottle and shake vigorously immediately after combining the powder and your liquid of choice. One reviewer even noted that a blender would not reduce the graininess. I suspect a mixup of countertop appliances. Stay on task and it's smooth enough.
>Know what you are buying. Don't like the taste? Does it give you scrunchy face? Do the ingredients list sweeteners? No. That should be part of the reason you are buying this particular powder. If you are addicted to sweets, there are plenty of other powders full of chemicals made just for you. Not everything has to taste like cookies and cakes. Also-- any, and I mean any, non-fruit flavored protein powder...
I love this stuff. You have to accept it for what it is though. This isn't a sickeningly sweet ready-to-drink protein shake full of artificial sweeteners and flavors and hydrogenated oils. This is 100% natural, using vegetable proteins. So it does have a bit of a different flavor and more subtle sweetness. It is a bit "gritty" in texture, even when mixed in a blender. But I love the subtle sweetness and the organic flavor. It fills you up and you know you're getting real nutrition instead of a bunch of chemicals. I make mine with milk and a few ice cubes in a blender and it makes a thick, satisfying, filling shake. You could also add peanut butter, bananas, or whatever to it and they'd be delicious varieties. Both the chocolate and vanilla flavors are very good. Highly recommended if you're wanting a healthful meal replacement shake.
