Pros:

  • The product contains nearly 90% protein
  • It’s dairy and gluten free
  • The chocolate praline flavour is delicious. It tastes like a milkshake
  • For the amount included, it’s great value for money

 

Cons:

  • The shaker to mix the protein with is difficult to open
  • The sweetners used could be more natural

 

Overall:

Since turning my diet to vegan, I was hesitant to try a protein powder because I knew that most of the main brands use milk. What completely surprised me is how healthy pea protein is to the body in general. I am slightly addicted to the taste and couldn’t imagine not drinking after my workouts. I feel less muscle tension after. Overall, I recommend.

 

They say:

Recently crowned European Brand of the Year 2017, Scitec Nutrition products are valued by elite athletes and popular with fitness enthusiasts because they combine quality performance with a great taste and overall experience.

Scitec Nutrition 100% Plant Protein is an ideal alternative protein source for anyone with a lactose intolerance or those on a vegetarian or vegan diet.  Made from Highly Pure Pisane® pea protein, this GMO-free protein source is incredibly versatile and has nearly 90% protein content.  It has a great all-natural amino profile, directly comparable from a performance perspective with Scitec’s top quality whey protein products.

Pea protein powder is becoming a firm favourite for gym-goers and health-conscious people alike.  It’s  also been proven to be beneficial for your kidneys and heart as well as muscle recovery and building lean muscle strength.

 

Application:

Mix 1 serving (30g) in 300ml water. Best time to use is after a workout.

 

We say:

I have tried a couple of protein powders before and have never tasted one as nice as Scitec Nutrition Plant Protein. The shaker included is a double-edge sword. Meaning, the lid stays tight and I don’t have to worry about leakage, however it’s quite tough to open.

I also find that there’s a hint of powder always stuck to the bottom. I wish the recommendation was more than 300ml because I could happily drink a large glass of this.

The sweeteners in my opinion could be better, nevertheless only a tiny amount is included and they are calorie free.

I didn’t notice much difference within the first few days of opening. Now on the other hand, I no longer feel lethargic and exhausted after training – specifically HIIT cardio.

 

Effectiveness

Tasty, great for recovery and has been helping me improve my strength. 4.5 stars

 

Packaging

Easy to open and the measuring cup inside was sat near the top. 5 stars

 

Value for money

For the amount you receive, the protein is really good value. 5 stars
