we sell Sci Mx Pro V in the shop which is a vegan protein that has a mixture of pea and other proteins. It's cheaper than whey, and supposedly has a superior amino acid profile.

Problem is, nobody ever wants to try it, myself included.

I've got 2.5kgs of it now, all for [1 million dollars] delivered. It's a curious blend to say the least, it would be good to use as stock in soups or stews. Drinking it on it's own is a little odd but if it gets the job done, who cares?

someone said in another thread that a mix of pea and rice protein would be optimal for vegans. so, i think it shouldn't be too bad in comparison to whey or casein.

Your logic escapes me. There is no logical reason that it should be close at all. All you can determine is that it's OK if you have no other choice.

for me it makes sense, cause i know some strong vegans. but without knowing strong vegans, it is illogical, right.

so, my point of view is the following:

i know strong vegans, who also eat pie protein. that makes me think it could be good or not too bad.

if the protein would be totally $h1t, it would not be on the market (speculation).

and i think some people approved it as good in the other thread, where is asked for it.

Pointless correction: Protein doesn't make you strong. It has only an indirect effect on strength. It makes you HOOOGE

I like pie protein a lot. My wife made a pie full of protein just last evening.
