Sun Warrior Protein (Product Review)

Note: Thanks to Annette from Sun Warriors for sending me Sun Warrior protein powder, a SUPER YUMMY, all natural, raw vegan protein powder. So far, I have had the vanilla and it was delicious! To be honest, I was a bit skeptical of how good it would taste, since I am not a huge fan of stevia... but this was definitely one of the best all natural protein powders I have had so far. Unlike traditional protein powders made from whey, this is made from brown rice protein. I love that it's all natural. Not only does it taste great, but their macros are awesome: One scoop of vanilla (22 grams) has only 70 calories, 1 gram of fat, 4 grams of carbs, no sugar and 15 grams of protein! I definitely recommend you try this brand. They come in 3 flavors: natural, vanilla and chocolate.

Benefits of this protein (From their website):
  • Made with 85% protein, Sun warrior has the Highest (non soy) raw (Not Heated over 90 Degrees) whole grain sprouted vegan protein on the market.
  • By using a third generation process, we have created the best tasting vegetable protein on the market that has a silky smooth texture that blends well and tastes great compared with other chalky & grainy vegetable proteins.
  • We use old world process of combining the sprouted endosperm and the bran from Raw Sprouted Whole Grain Brown Rice. This unique process creates the first complete hypoallergenic Protein which is made up of all 9 essential amino acids and other non-essential amino acids in a perfectly balanced amino acid profile.
  • 98% Correlation rate to Mothers Milk and a 98.2% digestion efficiency making it one of the highest digestibility and efficiency ratings of any other protein sources (compared to whey and soy).
  • Highest Net Protein Utilization score of any vegetable based protein and the highest ratio of amino acids converted to proteins.
  • Created with a Low Temperature natural Enzyme process that does not use any chemicals or acid hydrolysis (like most proteins do).
  • Naturally Rich in Vitamins and Minerals. Sun Warrior Protein contains high amounts of antioxidants Tocopherols, and Tocotrienols and other essential nutrients — such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, phosphorous, iron and potassium.
