Best all round vegan protein powder

Marketed as a game-changing vegan protein shake to rival whey protein powders, we had high expectations for this product from The Protein Works. Packing a pleasing 21g protein per 25g serving, it’s also impressively low in calories.

才不辜负的炒作味道测试?由一个nd large, yes it did. It has a very chocolatey flavour that was sweet enough to taste like a dessert without being sickly. There's an ever so slightly floury aftertaste – a very common pitfall of vegan protein powders – but it didn't spoil the experience. The powder mixes really well, even in a shaker, and isn't chalky or grainy.

最后的加点是物有所值 - 每次摇动的成本约为1英镑。它进来的浴缸也很不错。大拇指。

Grams of protein per serving: 17g per 25g serving
每份卡路里:97 kcals
Type of protein: peanut flour, yellow pea protein, raw pumpkin seed protein, hemp seed protein


The ingredients list on this powder is reassuringly short and recognisable. It’s a blend of four different organic protein sources – fat-reduced peanut flour, yellow pea protein, raw pumpkin seed protein and hemp seed protein – with no sugars, sweeteners, additives or flavourings. As a bonus, peanuts and pumpkin seeds are a good source of typtophan – an amino acid that helps our brain produce melatonin, a hormone that’s linked to sleep.

This powder had a lovely roasted peanut flavour, and paired beautifully with almond milk and banana, which added a touch of sweetness and creaminess. When it was mixed just with water it was thinner, and as it’s unsweetened, it has a very natural and earthy taste, but was still palatable. As a side note – the packaging doesn’t specify how much liquid to use per 25g serving, so we experimented and found 250ml liquid was the right amount to produce a nice smooth shake. We didn’t test it out, but the packaging suggests adding to pancake batter – and it would likely be a welcome addition to a bowl of porridge, too.

Vega Essentials蛋白质巧克力

Calories per serving: 145 kcals
Type of protein: pea protein, flaxseed powder, hemp protein, quinoa powder
Type of sweetener: steviol glycosides



有了所有这些成分,您可能会期待(ahem)异常的味道,但我们发现它具有可爱的牛奶巧克力味,可以喝可爱。它确实需要一个很好的旧奶昔才能结合所有粉末(将其视为额外的手臂锻炼),但是一旦混合在一起,它就很好又光滑 - 当我们使用搅拌机时,我们根本就没有问题。

There are 18 servings in a 648g packet which costs around £31.99, coming out at £1.77 per scoop.
Holland & Barrett (£18.08)
Planet Organic (£29.99)



Type of protein: pea protein isolate, white hemp protein
Type of sweetener: steviol glycosides


More than just a protein shake, this product is formulated specifically to support women's nutritional needs, providing several key vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium and vitamin B12. Free Soul also include a few extra ingredients so you get more bang for your buck – including Peruvian maca, ginseng, guarana and L-Carnitine.

它也是测试中最好的品尝香草粉,具有非常微妙的天然风味,不太甜,与香蕉搭配得很好。它确实有点粉料,但没有以令人不愉快的方式 - 让人想起面糊,这不是坏事。

It's pretty good value-for-money too, with 20 servings in a 600g packet, costing £24 – £1.20 per shake.

Liberto Dark Chocolate & Sour Cherry

Grams of protein per serving: 21.7g protein per 40g serving
Calories per serving: 150 kcals
Type of sweetener: coconut palm sugar


If you're after a full-flavoured protein powder with minimal processed ingredients, this is a great choice. Delivering 21.7g protein per 40g serving, it’s also high in omega 3 ALA fatty acids from chia and flax, along with maca, prebiotics and probiotics – with over 1 billion live cultures per serving. It ticks a lot of boxes, being organic, gluten-free, soya-free and high in fibre.

The real strong point of this powder is the taste – it has a very bold sour cherry flavour with a rich dark chocolate base. It also mixed easily to a nice smooth consistency, even just with water in the shaker, and has minimal grittiness or chalkiness. Like the others, it does have a slight floury aftertaste but overall, it's thoroughly enjoyable to drink.

This product is the highest in sugar out of all of those featured, at 3.34g per serving, but it’s a great option for those who want to avoid artificial sweeteners without sacrificing on taste.

这也是我们测试最昂贵的产品之一,每280克包装中有七份,价格为14.99英镑 - 每流价为2.14英镑。

Nuzest Clean Lean Protein Coffee Coconut & MCTs

Grams of protein per serving: 18.2g per 25g serving
每份卡路里:106 kcals
Type of protein: pea protein isolate
Type of sweetener: steviol glycosides


Coffee fans – this might be the protein powder for you. It's gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, lectin-free, non-GMO, and contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) – a type of fat-based supplement popular among athletes and body builders, and said to be more easily digested than the longer-chain fatty acids found in other foods.

The powder has quite a strong coconut flavour and a more subtle coffee kick, making it a perfect option after a morning workout. It dissolves nicely, isn't gritty at all and had no lumps, even when mixed briskly by hand in the shaker. When mixed with water it's on the thin side, but can easily be thickened up by mixing with almond milk instead.

If you're regularly getting enough protein from your diet, adding a supplement might not make a noticeable difference to your health.

Increasing protein intake in a form that is palatable and suits their lowered appetite may be effective in protecting against muscle loss.
