All protein powder tastes a little like pig feed. I would know - I grew up on a hog farm.
Pharmie has NEVER liked protein powder. But about a year ago, we found a winner.
Someone from PowerBar sent me 6 jugs of protein mix! (3 vanilla and 3 chocolate.) I thought I'd be giving some away to family and friends, but we're going through it too quickly. We only have 2 full jugs left. Here's what we've been using:
PowerBar ProteinPlus Protein Powder Drink Mix contains 20 grams of TriSource protein blend, a combination of three protein sources; whey protein isolate, calcium caseinate and soy protein isolate. The TriSource protein blend in PowerBar ProteinPlus Protein Powder Drink Mix was developed to be a high quality protein with a steady delivery of essential amino acids.
Pharmie doesn't get a ton of protein, and she's NEVER made anything with protein powder because it tastes too much like feed. But while she was pregnant and needing more protein, she went through a lot of the vanilla, and she LIKED it!! And I think the chocolate tastes like chocolate milk!
My "selling point" on this protein is that it's very "crystal-like," which allows it to dissolve better than ANY other protein powder I've EVER had. Really. There still might be a LITTLE bit of a clump at the bottom of my glass, but it usually dissolves nearly perfectly. I like to use this stuff after a hard workout in a big glass of milk, as I'm chugging a big glass of water in my other hand.
BOTTOM LINE: It's a good source of different kinds of protein, it tastes good, and it dissolves well.
