I bought this protein powder because it had no added sugar and it was one of the few that also had high fiber, 7 g per serving. Unfortunately, the fiber comes with carbs, 8 g per serving in this case. And even though it has no added sugar, all of the other ingredients bring the sugar rating to 1.3 g per serving. But if you are aware of the carbs and sugar you may be able to fit it in within the allowed servings to add the necessary fiber to your diet. Complete nutrition info can be found by clicking on the title above. I made this as usual in my "bullet" blender with a little crushed ice and water to make 8 oz. I also added 2 tsp of Benefiber to add even more fiber so the final carb count for MY drink was 12 and the fiber count was 10. The texture was a bit of a pleasant surprise, it came out more like pudding so could be used as a sugar free mousse type dessert with a spoonful of whip cream on top.
Pros: high fiber, lots of "green" food ingredients
Cons: carbs, sugar
Cost: $11.99 for a 1 lb pkg (about $.80 a serving)
