Pro-tip from our Senior Flavorist - Robin J. Rusinko
When choosing flavors for sports nutrition powders, look for fruits that complement the natural acidity of the powder, such as citrus or berry flavors. Green powders, may be flavored with virtually anything, such as mango/vanilla, watermelon, or a tropical blend. Plant proteins generally don't have citrus flavors because they lack acidity and have a heavy, frothy, and fibrous texture. Instead, chocolate, vanilla, and dessert flavors are often used.
