MRM Veggie Protein Review

M

  Flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, Unflavored, Cinnamon Bun No, that score is not a typo. I’ll say it upfront, this is one of the worst protein powders I’ve ever tried, both whey and plant based powders included. The strange thing is that MRM makes another vegan protein powder called MRM Veggie Elite that is actually one of the best I’ve tried. The biggest weaknesses of the product are the...

Flavors: Natural Vanilla, Natural Chocolate, Unflavoured Iron Vegan’s Athlete’s Blend is another Canadian-made vegan protein powder. They differentiate this product from others by using all organic non-GMO proteins. It’s also “all natural,” gluten free, and kosher.

Vega Sport Protein Powder Review

  Flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Berry, Mocha Vega Sport Protein Powder is one of the main vegan protein powders that Vega sells.
