NutriBiotic Rice Protein Powder Vegan Plain -- 1.5 lbs
Use it daily
I bought this because I had been using soy protein and I wanted to take a break from both soy and dairy. I have tried other rice protein powders and none of them dissolve as well as soy or whey based powders. I use this in a smoothie with coconut or almond milk, fruit and sometimes Vitacost Greentastic prepared in a blender. My vegan son uses this 2-3 times a day in smoothies and has not made any comments to me...so I guess he likes it! I used to think that rice protein powders were more expensive than the soy...not true if you do the math. Vitacost Soy protein Powder "looks" like it is half the price, but a 1lb can only has 13 servings and it uses a scoop. This product is a little over a pound, costs "twice as much" AND makes 40 servings - you get 14 more servings (figuring 26 servings = 2 cans of soy powder) than the Soy. You also get 2 grams more protein per serving. The only problem is that the directions say a serving is a "heaping tablespoon." I would prefer that it either come with a scoop and the serving be a "level scoop" OR that the measurement would be 1 1/2 level TBSP. Everyone knows what level means..."heaping" can mean a different thing to each person.

I use it to boost my shakes.
I use Life Time Basic brand protein shake powder. I use the Rice protein by Nutribiotic to add more protein, since I make a double shake in the AM, so I have it for breakfast & lunch. It mixes well & does the job. No funny taste either.

Wrong Size Listed
This says it's 1.5 lbs. It's actually 1 pound, 5 ounces. (5 ounces is NOT 1/2 pound!)
I like this since the ingredients are simple. It doesn't taste very good, but I can't usually taste it in smoothies and oatmeal.

This is a great choice for a plain flavor
I usually buy the 3 pound container. However, they were out of stock. I like the fact that the plain flavor has no sweetners or extra flavorings. Good quality and mixes well in water or in a blender. I will continue to buy this product and recommend it as well.
