Last Fall, Optimum Nutrition debuted its newest line of protein powders. This time around their newest product was strikingly different than its other powders in that it was a 100% plant-based protein powder.
This was a HUGE move for Optimum Nutrition as they laid the groundwork for other supplement companies to follow. They were award Bodybuilding.com's Brand of the Year for 2017, so it goes to show that these guys know what they're doing. Now, they've listened to their consumers and have launched their version of a plant-based protein powder.
While plant-based and vegan protein powders have existed prior to this product, what's exciting is quality of this supplement. Several plant protein powders have a knack for being too gritty and chalky, but not this version. Optimum Nutrition's whey protein powders have a reputation to mix well and be flavorful, and this quality is carried over to the plant-based version.
But why else should you give this a go? It's because it's healthy as f*&$. Yes, we said it. It's Gluten Free, Non-GMO, USDA Organic, and is loaded with amino acids. It also has no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. Each serving carries 24 grams of protein, 100% of your daily recommended dose of vitamin C, omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, and tons of vitamin B12.
The product is available in two flavors, Chocolate and Vanilla. A third berry flavor has been rumored, but is not yet released. Since this line of protein powder is quickly gaining praise, you'll want to add this to your supplement list. Check out the label information below.
