Good ingredients, stevia-heavy
on June 17, 2012
I like that this has better ingredients than other protein powders (no artificial sweeteners, no solvents - google hexane and isolate for info, no radiation, and vegan). I do not like the heavy stevia taste. I know that part is subjective, but if you are at all sensitive to the taste of stevia (as me and my fiancée are), you may have a difficult time with the taste of this flavor.
I called Sun Warrior and asked about a non-stevia product (among other questions) and they were very helpful (& friendly!) steering me in the direction of the Natural flavor, which has ONLY the protein powders & MCT. As we await the package of Natural in the mail, we'll use bananas and peanut butter to help cover the taste of the stevia in the Chocolate.
N.B.: My mom (who doesn't mind stevia) finds this to taste amazing and will be the happy recipient of our remaining chocolate powder.
I do wish this also had Brown Rice Protein, and that the ingredients were organic, but, as it is now, the ingredients and the "Cold Extrusion process" which is "free of solvents, GMOs, radiation, artifical colors, & preservatives", along with superior mixability, help make this protein powder my top contender among all others.
I rely on Amazon to help me make informed buying choices. I hope this review helped you in the same manner :)
