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!
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!
