Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder Review
Broth made from skin, fat and collagen from animals just sounds gross, and protein powder made from bone broth seems even less appetizing. Nevertheless, I wanted to try a Paleo-friendly protein my friend, who is into CrossFit, uses, so I purchased a sample of Ancient Nutrition’s Vanilla flavored Bone Broth protein powder. The 20 grams of protein per serving comes from chicken bone broth protein concentrate. It has only 1 gram of sugar, 100 calories, and only 1 gram of fat per serving. The sweetness comes from stevia and monk fruit. It’s not certified organic so I don’t know if the “natural vanilla flavor” is something I need to be concerned about. They do have an organic vanilla flavor on-line, but they didn’t have a sample packet of it at the grocery store.
The directions say to blend with water, juice or a vegan milk. Since many protein powders I’ve tried are extremely thick, I blended one cup of cold filtered water, one frozen banana, and the entire sample of vanilla bone broth protein powder in my Ninja. The end result was a very thin, watery, overly sweet drink that tasted like old iced coffee. I didn’t noticed any vanilla flavor at all. It had a weird taste, and not unique-weird, but yucky-weird. I gave the drink to my husband who finished it, but he said he didn’t like it either. He gave it a grade of “C.” I give it a grade of “F.”
My friend that likes this brand buys the chocolate flavor (she said it tastes better than the vanilla) so I might try that one out, but even so, it’s $40 for a bucket for 20 servings. Their certified organic bone broth protein powders are even more expensive at $49 for 17 servings so that’s just under $100 a month for protein powder. There’s lots of protein powders out there that are better priced and much-better tasting.
