Optimal Plant Proteins 4.4 5 12 16
great product Good tasting and easily dissolves in my morning green smoothie. February 21, 2014
I prefer others I tried this protein powder in green smoothies and plain blended with water/almond milk - the smoothie didn't taste very good compared to other powders and the plain mix was not well flavored and gross texture. My favorites are: Lifetime Life Basics, Sun Warrior Blend Vanilla and Olympian Labs Vanilla. December 10, 2013
Optimal Plant Proteins I use this to make my protein drink. This taste good and mixes well with the other products i use in my protein drink. Any one who wants to mix their own this is a perfect product. October 30, 2013
Tasty and Easy-to-mix Vegetable protein My background / reason for looking for a product like this: Being an active person who is lactose-intolerant and values good quality as-natural-as-can-be foods, I am always on the lookout for lactose-free proteins that are organic and/or amazing quality with little additives. I eat a lot of food daily in order to meet a high energy requirement, and as an omnivore, I eat a lot of animal products for protein (meat, eggs, yogurt). But I also value having alternative protein sources so that I don't elevate my cholesterol levels. My experience with this product: Having tried various vegetarian/vegan products in the past that are chalky and don't mix well to the point that they make you cough (brown rice protein, most hemp proteins, and Garden of Life RAW varieties), I've found it challenging to find to options that work well for me. But the Jarrow Optimal Plant Proteins is AWESOME. Not only does it taste great, but it mixes easily. I experience no bloating or discomfort with this product. I also appreciate the way the chia seeds sit at the bottom, contributing to a little texture. I really like the blend of plant proteins in this product - it's unique, and it's great if you don't like soy. I happen to be fine with organic soy products in moderation, and I'm fine with pea protein as well - those are both healthy options. But this product is more balanced in its amino acid content than a single plant protein, and it doesn't have any strange flavors like NOW pea protein or brown rice protein. If you think that this price is a bit higher per pound than other simple plant protein options without additives (pea protein, soy protein), you're right. But it's totally worth it. Jarrow Optimal Plant Proteins is about the same price as Spiru-tein but doesn't have as many additives, and it also less expensive than other plant protein mixtures. I'm a fan of every aspect of this product. August 31, 2013
Great for Body Building This is a great product for vegetarians who want to get away from Soy and build muscle as well. I've gained 10 pounds taking half of what is recommended on the container. I'm feeling great and I'm not on a weight increase diet. I haven't changed my normal diet whatsoever. I think it tastes great with or without fruit but I prefer it with. April 8, 2013
good stuff we really like the Optimal Plant Proteins. Quick and easy to use! March 14, 2013
Good protein source This is a good plant source of protein. Mixes well and tastes OK. Use it almost every day. February 23, 2013
Awful! This tastes awful, has an awful after taste, doesn't mix well at all. I am usually a fan of Jarrow products, but they really missed the mark on this one. I tried mixing it in my blender bottle with 4 ounces of juice and 4 ounces of water, as I've done with other protein powders, and this just does not mix well at all. Lots of clumps and just tastes awful. This is the first product I've ever been so dissatisfied with that I'm returning it. I'll stick with the Plantfusion protein powders! February 13, 2013
Optimal Plant Proteins really like this product, have bought it before and it works great in my breakfast smoothies. February 4, 2013
I Wanted to Love This I have tasted some pea/rice powder that tastes ok, but this stuff is just too grainy and the taste is not good. I'll probably gag it down because I don't want it to go to waste but I won't order more or recommend it. January 15, 2013
Best product out there This is by far the best mix of vegan protein I have tried and you cannot beat the price! January 14, 2013
Pleased with this product I have used several protein products, and have liked this one, and it is more affordable with the Swanson's discount price on Jarrow products.it has a fairly good taste, good texture, and is easily digestible. I sometimes enjoy it in juices as well, and also mixed with other supplements. March 18, 2012
