Best Tolerated Protein Supplement Ever
I have tried many different protein powders - soy, egg white, pea powder, etc. and they all left me feeling bloated and miserable. This Rice protein has worked GREAT for me. The taste is ok, but the taste is affected by whatever I add to it such as fruit, coconut water, almond milk, pineapple etc. Never has it tasted unpalatable. I do price shop at vitamin websites online and at the time I ordered my last shipment of this Rice powder it was the cheapest price that I found online at that time. I have ordered many products from Vitacost and have always been happy with their excellent customer service and all orders have always been accurate and arrive in a timely manner. Thanks Vitacost for providing an excellent provide that I higly recommend.

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.
