Sproutein Review

You may recall my review of the raw vegan rice protein SunWarrior. Now there’s another new entrant on the scene, and I promised the good folks on the Eat To Live Yahoo! Group I’d review this one as well.

Rice, soy, and even hemp protein powders have been around for a while, but this is a rather different concept. Sproutein is a concoction of eight different freeze dried sprouts, hempseed powder, and the superfoods, goji berry, maca root, yacon root, and lucuma.

Check out that 2nd-to-last symbol. It’s a “certified raw” seal from approvedraw.com. Great concept. (Unfortunately, as of this writing, their website is not yet live.)

So, how’s it taste? Let’s see… It starts off with an earthy flavor (must be the maca), but soon brightens with crisp sprout goodness taking over the palette. There was an aftertaste, not unpleasant, just lingering, like the onions at Subway.

They also offer single variety freeze dried (and fresh) sprouts that I’m betting wouldn’t have as evident an aftertaste; I’m thinking it’s some of the superfoods that are doing it, but that’s just speculation until I get the chance to order them. You could always mix it in a more strongly-flavored drink, say, a juice or smoothie, instead of water.

How do the numbers stack up? Well, though billed as a protein supplement, it sure is a calorific way to get it! Compare the calorie:protein ratio of rice protein (4.4 calories per gram) to that of Sproutein at 21. As a calorie restrictor, it’ll have to remain a treat.

    I have used many green drink mixes for my morning ritual. I tried this products and was very pleasantly surprised. I mix mine in a 3hp blender and use almond milk and it really does give me more energy and a lighter feeling than my old mixes

    I’ve never tried “green drinks” but it sounds like a pretty damn good idea. I’ve heard lots of great things about maca, so I think that’s good enough reason to give it a try.
