Side by Side Comparison & Taste Test of Vegan Protein Powders

The taste taste was a success.  The kids consumed vegan protein at breakfast.  Raw Protein was not to their liking, they loved the Shakeology, and Plant Fusion was ok.  The Shakeology does have double the sugar of Plant Fusion so that may have impacted the kids’ decision.

Taste is a huge factor but I can’t forget about the actual protein.  “The DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, or 0.36 grams per pound (1) (AuthorityNutrition).”  My kids weigh just over 60 pounds so they should consume a little more than 21-24 grams of protein a day.  Plant Fusion offers 21 grams of protein in one serving!

Google+Cost is also a factor.  At $132.06 for a one month supply for one person, Shakelogy is budget buster.  The Amazon price for Plant Fusion ($0.035/g) and Raw Protein ($0.044/g) are much more reasonable for a family of four.

It looks like we have a clear winner on the cost and protein counts with a taste we can handle.  Plant Fusion it is!

  1. Keely,

    Now will you bake this protein into the muffins? Is the protein that you chose flavored or will it most likely take on the flavor of the muffins you make?

    This is a very interesting project!

    • Meredith- My muffin post was sort of a knock on muffins. Not that I don’t love a good muffin but it seemed like many vegan breakfast recipes were carbohydrate heavy. I am exploring vegan breakfast options that are based on protein. These protein powders are for serving shakes for breakfast. My kids are not ready to transition to tofu quiche (lol) for breakfast so this seems like a great step toward a plant based breakfast. Thanks for the question.
