Amazonia Raw Protein Isolate: the all natural protein powder
Amazonia Raw Protein Isolate is the world’s first prebiotic, raw, organic protein, by the guys behind the acai bowl revolution. It’s made from bio-fermented peas and brown rice, along with prebiotics and live digestive enzymes. I picked some up online while searching for an effective organic protein powder for myself and my clients.
Amazonia Raw Protein Isolate is available in natural, vanilla and cacao coconut flavours. I tried the vanilla one and it tasted delicious; the real vanilla flavour (made from organic vanilla bean) shines through with each mouthful. With its natural ingredients it feels gentle on the stomach too – it supports digestive balance, which has the added benefit of helping the body break down and absorb the protein.
A single serving contains 24.3 grams of protein, 1.8 grams of carbohydrates and just 108 calories, making it perfect for working out or adding to breakfast smoothies or protein balls.
If you’re vegan or lactose-intolerant, this protein will be of particular interest to you, as it contains absolutely no whey.
Even though it may not be quite as potent as some of the more well-known protein powders on the market, I’m still a huge fan of Amazonia Raw Protein. The fact that it’s all natural, with no nasty additives, made my workout feel much cleaner. It’s an effective protein powder and it’s actually good for you – unlike the chemical-ridden proteins many people consume. Overall, I’m pleased that I discovered Amazonia, as their products allow me to still have a productive workout and build muscle mass while shopping ethically and eating sustainably.
