NutraPlanet's Own Protein - Samples Review
When I got home tonight, there was a package at my door from NP with samples of the new "home-made" whey protein.
Flavors I will be reviewing are: Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Lime, Peach, and Fruit Punch.
Chocolate - Uhhhmmm....delicious! I'm not a chocolate fan but this is pure heaven. Mixed it with 8 oz of light soymilk and it dissolved after a few stirs with a teaspoon. Nice, thick consistency, not too sweet, and very easy to digest - no bloating or gas (I have lactose intolerance)
Now that I think of it - it tasted like a chocolate ice cream without all the sugars and fat, such a nice treat! Since it doesn't require a blender, this makes it very portable and would be great to have in the office for a quick snack or take to school.
It was so good I drank it all with milk sorry didn't get a chance to mix with water but maybe someone else will.
Stay tuned....more to come!
To be continued......

That's a good start. Glad to hear it's low in lactose

Saw a question about price....we are looking at VERY competitive pricing. I think everyone will be pleased with the price.
Rottie, thanks for the post so far. To me, the chocolate mixed with water tasted like a yoohoo.

OK, so when the heck it is coming out. I am on my last 5lb package of protein and I need to order ASAP. I am holding off for you guy to put Xtend on sale and either ATW or Dymatize protein on sale. But if NP own protein has good protein profile and tastes as the other two brands, I will buy your stuff. You guys been good to me :-)

great review! Looking forward to seeing thoughts on all flavors
I agree as well, mixability is a huge issue. Nothing worse than drinking an entire shaker cup of protein to realize there is still all this dried out protein at the bottom

This morning, following a 3 am workout, I mixed the vanilla sample into 1/2 cup of steel cut oats prepared with water. It dissolved after a few stirs with a spoon, again - no clumps whatsoever. It has a nice, mild and pleasant taste with no chemical undertone, unlike the Muscletein (GAT) I've been drinking lately.
It was a bit watery but still very filling. I usually have to add a tsp. of natty PB to make the oatmeal "stick to my ribs" so this is a plus.
Digestability gets 10 points, no bloat or stinky
I've tried many different vanilla proteins over the years but this one is the best! The only issue I can think of is that the flavor is too mild.....but I guess a few drops of vanilla extract or even adding a few drops of vanilla flavored Splenda would do the trick.
More flavors to be reviewed later today...

I am looking for a chocolate with better taste to mix with almond butter, nat peanut butter, or nutella. So far I cannot find any choc that is decent in water. They all remind me of water from a poorly filtered city tap. All the Whey and T~P (mods might not like me spelling out the name) are satisfactory. But I want more than just acceptable since I consume at least 8 pounds of whey a month. Think I will give this a try.

Actually, vanilla is the absolute hardest flavor to get right when it seems like it should be the easiest.
Real vanilla is an incredibly complex of chemicals and constitutes. Trying to replicate that in a lab is a serious chore. If any of your wives are bakers, check the price on real vanilla extract next time; it is usually about $10 for 2-4 ounces.
My house actually goes through so much of it, that when we went to Mexico last year, the only thing we brought back was vanilla - about a half gallon of it - as it is so cheap down there with local producers.
Anyway, long story short is if our vanilla is on, it is very good news.

NutraPlanet Protein line. Who'da thunk it? It's like those Monkey can read minds too.
FWIW - My dreams have come true.
Time to dream another dream.
Thanks Sam, Matt and crew!

Fruit Punch -
Expecting a Pepto Bismol flavor, I reluctantly mixed the fruit punch sample with 8 oz of ice cold water. This was at the office and I don't keep a spoon at my desk so had to gently shake the plastic cup, anticipating swallowing chunks of undissolved stuff. But no...it dissolved instantly in a matter of seconds!! Wow!! All I can say is amazing! I've never had a protein (blend) that would dissolve completely.
Taste - delicious, refreshing, more of a berry taste. Definitely something to have post-workout, it was very, very good. Not as filling as the vanilla I had this morning but perhaps because I only used water
Digestability - no bloating, no farts, can't believe there's no added enzymes.
Wonderful product - good job Nutra! Deserves 9.5 points out of 10 (gotta leave some room for the other flavors)

Stirred into 6 oz of light soymilk to make a milkshake. This one had a bit of trouble dissolving, it eventually did but it just took longer. Maybe I'm just getting spoiled..
It smells wonderful and tastes just like Nesquick flavored milk. It has a very strong strawberry flavor which is slightly artificial, but mixing it with milk will smooth it out nicely.
Digestability - as it proved with all the other flavors, no problems at all. No bloating or gas.
It's been a while since I had strawberry Myofusion so it's hard to compare but I'd give it a try....so far it gets 8.5 out of 10 points.
Decided to use skim milk instead of water. I usually mix the "peachy keen" flavor of Nectar in water but since Nutra's is a blend I chose milk.
Mixability - nice and easy with a spoon, made a smooth milk shake.
Taste - rather bland compared to the strawberry. but OK, has a nice yet subtle peachy flavor.
Digestability - very good! as it proved with all the other flavors.
This one gets 5.0 out of 10
So far, chocolate is the winner! It was absolutely fantastic and I can't wait to buy at least 5 lb. It's a tie between vanilla and fruit punch, then strawberry and peach. I haven't tried lime yet so will post a review tomorrow.
Would love to see what a chocolate peanut butter would taste like. But then again, the combination could make it so good for people to get addicted.
