My Thoughts:

Without getting into a whole discussion on all of the various proteins that are out there, lets just say that finding a protein that I believe suits me best has been a major focus of mine in regards to my diet. I’ve essentially concluded that I feel and perform better (running and weight lifting) when I do my best to limit my consumption of grains. Because of this, I’ve tried to generally dodge protein powders that are derived from brown rice. I am still very much a proponent of hemp protein (which is one of the few plant-based proteins with a complete amino acid profile), which is a part of this Prime protein blend (brown rice protein, pea protein, hemp protein). I would keep this protein in my grain-free routine if it contained only the hemp protein.

That said, I realize that there are many individuals who are vegan or vegetarian and are looking for plant-based protein options. For those people, I’d recommend this protein. Since this protein is non-gmo, it is heads and shoulders above many other protein brands you’ll see in the store. Organic is best, and I’d love to see organic ingredients in this blend (if they are organic, they are not listed that way).

Taste-wise, this blend is very good! You know a blend has a great taste when it’s great mixed with just water (as they suggest). The chocolatey flavor tastes real and satisfying. The drink itself is very filling as well.

I’ve had a very pleasant experience interacting with this company–and that is no trivial thing. They have been very helpful in answering my questions about the protein, which has helped me gain a fuller understanding to their approach in creating this protein. They also happen to ship their protein in the coolest boxes that read “Heck No GMO.”

Like I said, I would consider being a regular customer if they created an only-hemp protein blend! I love the passion behind their product and their stance on overall health.

  1. Proteases (protein-breaking enzymes) are NOT used in our process. In other words, the protein is NOT broken into its constituent amino acids, so there is no “free” glutamic. Therefore, MSG is NOT created during our process and is not present in our plant protein products. Many (but not all) rice and pea proteins are created this way.
