My how time flies. In 2014, I reviewed Sprout Living Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder. To the best of my knowledge, it was the first mass marketed seed protein powder on the market. Fast forward to 2020, and the “Simple” line of Sprout Living Seed Protein Powders now includes sunflower, flax, and watermelon seed options, too. Each variety is not only dairy-free, but also soy-free, gluten-free, nut-free and made without top allergens.
Sprout Living Seed Protein Powders are Simple Top Allergen Free Supplements
To date, I’ve still tried just the pumpkin seed protein powder, but it is their top seller. Unlike so many protein supplements, it didn’t have a powdery mouth feel, and was surprisingly neutral in flavor in smoothies. I enjoyed it most in Pumpkin Spice Protein Shakes – I just couldn’t resist the pumpkin theme.
I’ve included details here on all of the Sprout Living Seed Protein Powders in their Simple line. Feel free to leave your own rating and review below if you’ve tried any of them.
