TNS Trutein Cinnabon Protein Review
As a lover of all cinnamon flavored products, it was inevitable that one day a tub of TNS Trutein Cinnabun flavor would end up in my hands. Let me just preface the review with this, buying this protein was one of the greatest supplement purchases i've made to date
I bought my 5lb (67 serving) container for $44.95. This comes out to $0.67 per scoop, as compared to myofusion cinnamon roll's $0.86, and XF ultra peptide cinnamon roll's $1.37. This makes Trutein not only the most affordable Cinnabun flavored protein in its class, but overall an extremely affordable protein powder.
Ingredient Profile: 10/10
I'm not sure where to begin for this category, almost every aspect of Trutein's formula nears perfection. Only 120 calories, 1g of fat, 5g of carbohydrates, and 1g of sugar make this protein very attractive to those on a cut or keto diet. Each scoop also contains 24g of protein, 2.5g of fiber, and 100mg of Protease enzymes. I really enjoy the breakdown of the protein sources that Trutein uses: 40% whey isolate and concentrate, 40% micellar casein, and 20% egg albumen. In my eyes this is the ultimate clean, balanced, and effective protein blend.
Imagine taking one of those cinnabuns from the mall kiosks, melting it down, and throwing it in a blender with milk. That is how I can describe the taste of Trutein. I chose to mix 8oz of milk with one scoop before bed and boy was I in for a treat. When you take a sip you are first hit with a delicious cinnabun doughiness, which then mellows out and the cinnamon and sweet icing start to kick in. It has the perfect amount of cinnamon flavor and the sweetness brings together all the flavors for one incredible shake. As a bonus, the shake is mouth-wateringly thick and creamy, just like milkshake. Bottom line, I look forward to drinking Trutein all day and often times have to resist the urge to make a second one before bedtime.
The powder mixed perfectly with a few shakes in 8oz of milk. No clumps or settling of any of the protein. The only "flaw" in the mixability is the fact that the cinnamon particles settle at the bottom. I expected the cinnamon to stay undissolved, and with a few shakes of the drink, they were easily gulped down.
Clean, balanced profile + affordable price + great mixability + mind blowing taste = TNS Trutein Cinnabun. I highly recommend buying a small tub, or at the very least a sample pack because this is my new favorite protein powder on the market. More tubs will definitely be coming my way
