NutriBiotic Rice Protein Powder Raw Vegan Vanilla -- 3 lbs
Wouldn't buy again
low cost per serving
high in protein
overpowering chalky flavor
Just one heaping tablespoon (which is one serving) added to 50 ounces or so of smoothie completely zaps all the flavor.
I didn't realize this the first time, so I kept adding fruit and adding fruit, then adding sweetener (stevia in the raw) and more stevia to try to bump up the flavor until I couldn't add any more because it was getting ridiculous.
A typical smoothie I make for my husband and myself is: two very ripe frozen bananas, at least one cup of frozen strawberries (often more), 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries, tablespoon of chia or flax seeds, some stevia and enough water to get the Vitamix going. It's always yummy. We can taste the each fruit flavor.
Before purchasing this protein powder, we were using a plain pea protein powder. It added a bit of creaminess, but did not alter the flavor in any significant way. So it didn't occur to me right away that the new protein powder was to blame.
This one just deadens it. I proved it to myself by making the smoothie as usual, having hubs and I taste it, then blending in a tablespoon of powder and tasting it again. It went from banana-berry wonderfulness to bland.
Maybe the Plain variety wouldn't affect the flavor so much, but I'm not willing to find out.

Great plant protein
I have been using this rice protein in different flavors for the last few years. Nutribiotic is not gritty like some other rice proteins. Also, it actually tastes pretty good. I mix it with all kinds of things to make my pre and post workout shakes. Excellent choice for a plant protein.

Filling & satisfying
Although a little powdery in texture when mixed, the flavor is good and when used in my morning smoothies I feel full and energized all morning.

Good Protein Source & Flavor
I've been buying Vanilla NutriBiotic Rice Protein Powder for years. As a vegetarian, I try to maintain a healthy protein and mineral intake. This is a good protein starter but I actually use it as 1/2 of a mixture with The Ultimate Meal. The Ultimate meal is full of my mineral needs but I find its green taste a tad much for my liking. Combining the very expensive Ultimate Meal with the very reasonably priced NutriBiotic Protein Powder makes the overall price acceptable while filling my protein, mineral and taste desires.

Great opportunity for vegans
This product is excellent for those loooking for a vegan protein option. The quallity is great. The only problem is the taste, wich doesn't remind of vanilla or anything good. But this is due to the lack of artificial components, wich in the end is also a good thing.
