Sun Warrior Vegan Protein Powder Review

We’ve all heard protein powders bad-mouthed by some ‘pure-foodists’. This is ignorance in my opinion. If whey protein, a derivative of milk, is ‘not real food’, then neither is butter, also a milk derivative. But as with all food choices, protein powders are of course not all equal. Highly processed, heat-treated, unnecessary artificial additives, cheap fillers – some protein powders are actually protein ‘junk’.

Whey protein is the sport and fitness industry’s favourite supplement, but vegan options are often not a high priority for manufacturers, leaving vegans or people who don’t tolerate dairy-derived proteins with a limited selection of mostly poor quality powders that are equally nasty in texture and taste.

Thankfully Sun Warrior have come to the rescue. I am intolerant to casein, and can only have whey in limited amounts, so vegan blends are my way of knocking up a convenient, tasty, nutritious breakfast, snack, or pre/post-workout shake. In fact as a very busy business woman, wife and mother who would love to make homemade protein bars every day but doesn’t have time, I get through quite a lot of Sun Warrior protein!
