With so many Plant Based or Vegan proteins on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one to choose. Since almost all of them, or at least the higher quality ones, contain no artificial sweeteners or colors, and many are gluten free, a lot of the difference comes down to protein sources and flavoring.
One of the biggest things to be aware of when looking into a plant based protein is the amino acid profile. Unlike animal based proteins, plant proteins are known as "Incomplete Proteins". This means no single source of protein contains every amino acid. To make up for this, a quality vegan protein should use complementary protein sources to ensure a full amino acid profile. NutraKey includes a blend of Pea, Brown Rice, Artichoke, Spirulina,Quinoa, and Amaranth. These 6 protein sources provide a much comprehensive amino acid profile than a pea isolate alone.
It's no secret that plant proteins can taste... terrible. So many on the market are almost impossible to drink. Unfortunately, the natural texture of plant based protein sources is that of sand, as the ingredients aren't as soluble as whey protein. Some companies attempt to cover this up with excess flavoring, which just leads to a strong tasting gritty mixture people still struggle to get down. NutraKey VPro has a finer mixing powder, so while there will be some texture when compared to a whey, it is minimal when talking about plant based protein. They also managed to use a very smooth flavor profile, so it is not overbearing when drinking it alone, or mixing into a smoothie.
Overall a very high quality raw plant protein powder. Vegan, Non-Gmo, Gluten Free, with no artificial flavors or colors, NutraKey VPro checks all the boxes when it comes to a plant based protein powder, and on top of all that it tastes great.
