This man is a genius, to say the least. Jay Robb is a nutritional, protein genius. Thank you so much to Beth for sending me some protein packets to review! I now can see why everyone in the blogosphere loves his products SO much.
I got to try three variations of protein powder: Brown Rice Protein, Egg White Protein, and Whey Protein. Jay Robb also has other products to offer such as JayBars, YAMMIT!, Digestive Health aides, Nutritional Oils, and Stevia. I was like a kid at Christmas when I saw the package from them on my front door step!
The Whey Proteins are made with 100% rBGH-Free Whey Protein Isolate as the protein source. Only cold-processed cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate is used as the protein source and this material comes from farm-raised, pasture-grazed, grass-fed cows not treated with the synthetic bovine growth hormone rBGH. Whey Protein, is created by microfiltering liquid whey through a special ceramic membrane to create the highest grade of whey protein possible. They use a very unique process which causes the Whey to be rich in immunoglobulins, alpha-lactalbumin, and beta-lactoalbumin and other immune boosting factors. Containing zero fat, cholesterol, sugar, aspartame, sucralose, acesulfame-K, casein, msg, or gluten, each 30 gram serving will provide you with 24g of protein! Each serving only contains 110 calories, and 1g of carbohydrates and is made from the finest, most natural ingredients possible, including Stevia.
The Egg White Protein is available in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry and has almost the same nutritional value as the Whey Protein, except it is derived from Egg Proteins from chickens not treated with hormones. It also has 4g of carbohydrates vs. the 1g of the Whey Protein. It is chock full of egg albumen, and is even lactose free! However, it does contain eggs and soy lecithin. Again, there is NOTHING whatsoever artificial about this protein powder, but check out the amino acids that each serving provides!:

The Brown Rice Protein comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry as well, and contains another 24g of protein. It is created by using a patent-pending low-heat process that naturally extracts the protein fraction of whole-grain sprouted brown rice. The combination of this proccess and Jay Robb’s natural flavors and stevia are used to create a silky-smooth, vegan, and hypoallergenic, non-GMO, cold-processed, outrageously delicious, highly nutritious, complete protein. Each 110 calorie scoop of 30g contains just .5g of fat (0 saturated), 4g of carbs, and 2g of fiber! It also provides 10% of your daily calcium and 30% of your daily iron!!
Beth recommended the Pina Colada flavor, being that it was her favorite, so that’s the one that I tried first and it absolutely did NOT disappoint!! One thing that I loved about alllll of the proteins was that they made for a silky-smooth texture. You couldn’t taste the granules of clumpiness that you get with a lot of other protein mixes. The flavors were unbeatable too! Especially this one. I never realized there was a way to enjoy a guilt free, protein rich pina colada! I just combined about a handful of ice, the protein powder, and 1/2 C. of Tempt hemp milk. So simple, yet so tasty! You can be as creative or non creative as you like, though! They are very versatile! I think the Pina Colada would’ve been really good with some frozen chunks of mango and banana added too, but I really wanted to get a feel for the flavor, so I just combined the bare bones.
Some of the other methods that I tried using the protein powder included stirring it into my oats and yogurt. I’ve even seen bloggers use it to make protein ice cream using this recipe:
I would love to try this! Also, another winning combo using Jay Robb protein comes from Heather from HEAB when she purreed some kabocha squash and vanilla protein powder in a waning almond butter jar! I MUST try this one. I’m a squash fanatic! If you’re the kind of person who has trouble getting creative in the kitchen, Jay has a recipe page for some neat ways to use his products where you can find ideas for shakes, lunches, dinners, breakfasts, and snacks!
You can find all of his products for purchase online (here), and you even get FREE SHIPPING with a $25 purchase!! Trust me, you’ll want AT LEAST $25 worth 😉 It’s amazing stuff! Thanks again, Beth! I will be re-ordering in the near future!!
