For all the people who pledge the allegiance to the United States of Whey Protein likely has been a fan and or current customer of Optimum Nutrition. Well, that is unless you watched game changer and decided to go full plant based for the uber long life and vegan superpowers. Joking aside a lot of people want to go plant based and or start to blend the plant-based lifestyle with their regular diet and routine.
Optimum Nutrition for a while now has been offering their protein wisdom and superior supply chain on a plant-based version of their 100% Gold Standard label. They are now offering two flavors in the standard chocolate and vanilla and one unflavored option that you can use to bake, make smoothies, and or just be a glutton for a punishment drinking plan flavored whey protein!!
They use a blend of pea, brown rice, and sancha ichi protein which up the amino acid profile to that of a well balanced protein capable of supplementing the diet with all the EAA it needs. They also blend some whole food grains for fiber and some carbs to round out the protein and smoothness. Not low carb, but not high carb either…plus who doesn’t need a little bit of fiber in their diet.
