I was a great fan of the earlier version of Vega vanilla plant protein and greens. I was happy to find this new version until I tasted it. I find it sweet and artificial tasting. The earlier protein just tasted and “felt” healthy to me; this does not. A quick look at nutritional info from this one (first photo) compared to earlier (2nd and 3rd Photo). I’m interested that sugar and fat content both increased but the flavor is worse. I’m guessing cheaper less healthy ingredients and flavor cover up. Notice also that no amino acid profile is provided for the new protein powder. If anyone has found a powder as good as the old Vega, please let me know!
I’m sorry to hear you’re not a fan of the taste. If you’d be interested in trying a different flavor that you may find more flavorful, we’d love to help you out with that. We're happy to let you know that we use a multisource plant-based protein blend that offers 21 grams of complete protein (has all essential amino acids) per serving. For your reference, here is a typical amino acid profile per serving (grams), based on Vanilla Vega Organic Protein & Greens* Alanine 1.1 Aspartic Acid 2.9 Arginine 2.2 Cystine 0.4 Glutamic Acid 4.4 Glycine 1.0 Histidine 0.7 Isoleucine 1.2 Leucine 2.2 Lysine 1.9 Methionine 0.2 Phenylalanine 1.4 Proline 1.1 Serine 1.3 Threonine 0.9 Tryptophan 0.2 Tyrosine 0.9 Valine 1.3
