Plant Fusion Protein Review

A few weeks ago my favorite brand of plant based supplements, Vega, had a product recall. This left me in a state of shock as not only was I completely out of my favorite supplements, but I could not purchase any since the shelves were cleared at my local Whole Foods stores. You may think that this is no big deal but as a girl who is on a strict bodybuilding program, I drink this stuff three times per day – I had to find an alternative and fast.

I looked at the ingredients in many of the other plant based protein powders and was not impressed. They either had too many carbohydrates, too much sodium, or simply not enough grams of protein per serving. On the bottom shelf I came across a protein called Plant Fusion. After carefully studying the macros and Amino Acids profile I decided to pick some up and give it a try. The flavor that was in stock? Cookies and Cream. Sounded like a great alternative to the boring vanilla and chocolate I had been drinking at the time.

When I got home and opened the container, I couldn’t believe how smooth the consistency of the powder was compared to the other plant based protein I had tried. This meant that it would mix well and it did! The flavor was good too – although the Cookies and Cream did not taste like Cookies and Cream, it was a nice chocolate flavor that I would have no problem drinking multiple times per day.

The next time that I went to Whole Foods I decided to try another flavor – vanilla. (yes, Vega still wasn’t in stock) This flavor was great as well. Plant Fusion was awesome to send me samples of the other flavors as well and I have to say, all of them are fabulous. This protein is easily digestible and doesn’t leave you feeling bloated or gassy like some plant based protein will. Check out the nutrition facts and amino profile in the picture below!

After weeks of using Plant Fusion, I have made the decision to continue using it in place of Vega. Now only does it taste just as good but it is a better price point too! Afterall, drinking three of these shakes a day gets a bit pricey and if I can save $20 per tub, that’s a plus. Give this stuff a try. Go to plantfusion.net or check out your closest natural foods store to see if they have it in stock.

  1. Thanks for the review and the heads up on this protein. I too have been on the hunt for a new powder for myself and one I can recommend to my clients. I’ll give it a try! 😀

  2. I’ve been using aria designer whey for women. But the protein per serving isn’t high enough. I might try this-thanks!
