(NaturalNews) Continuing our article series on new raw foods, today we take a look at an exciting new raw, sprouted protein product from Sprout Living ( It's called Sproutein, and it's a (relatively) high-protein powder made almost entirely from freeze-dried sprouts.

The raw protein supplement market is simply exploding with consumer demand. As people learn about the benefits of plant-based proteins and raw foods, they're increasingly looking for raw, plant-based protein products that provide the nutrients they need to stay healthy and fit.

Sprout Living ( has just come out with a new protein product called Sproutein. At the Raw Spirit Fest, I was handed the very first sample of this product, along with a hot-off-the-press label that I had to stick on it myself! Made from freshly freeze-dried sprout powders (see below), this product is raw, nutrient dense and absolutely packed with phytonutrients that nourish the body and eliminate degenerative disease (like cancer or heart disease). There are so many anti-cancer nutrients in this product, it would take me a whole book just to cover them.

(See below for a 15% discount code, exclusive to NaturalNews readers...)

Most protein products are one dimensional and don't provide many phytonutrients. That's fine if you're adding your own superfoods to your protein smoothies, but some people want a protein source that's rich in sprout nutrients. That's where Sproutein fits the bill. The drawbacks are that it's only about 1/3rd protein and it's a bit on the gritty side (13g of fiber vs. 11g of protein per serving). The taste is also definitely not for beginners looking for a sweet-tasting protein. This is more for hard-core folks looking for very high nutrient density in a protein powder. I really enjoyed it in my smoothies, but then again I'm the kind of guy that drinks marine phytoplankton in my water.

The incredible healing power of sprouts

You're no doubt familiar with the remarkable healing benefits of raw sprouts. Sprouts are nutrient-dense superfoods, and they're loaded with enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. They even pack a potent anti-cancer punch: Many in the raw foods community consider sprouts to be the most powerful class of cancer-fighting foods in the world, and eating raw broccoli sprouts every day, for example, bathes your body's cells in a healing stream of anti-cancer nutrients.

The Sproutein product from Sprout Living is brand new, just released days ago. It's USDA Organic and 100% raw. It contains absolutely no fillers, chemical sweeteners or additives of any kind. Here are the ingredients:

Freeze Dried Sprout Powders (Sunflower Sprouts, Amaranth Sprouts, Millet Sprouts, Flaxseed Sprouts, Kale Sprouts, Quinoa Sprouts, Mung Bean Sprouts, Alfalfa Sprouts), Hempseed Protein Powder, Goji Berry Powder, Black Maca Root Powder, Yacon Root Powder, Lucuma Powder

As astute nutritionists will note, the yacon root and lucuma powder add a touch of sweetness to the formula. The maca root gives a bit of energy, and the goji berry powder offers a wealth of health-boosting phytonutrients.

The kale sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, sunflower sprouts and flaxseed sprouts are all powerful anti-cancer superfoods that many people have used to actually cure advanced-stage cancers. The number of people curing cancer on a raw foods diet is simply astonishing, by the way, and sprouts are one of their main foods.

The flaxseed sprouts offer healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and the quinoa sprouts offer healthy, full-spectrum protein. Together, it's an impressive formula that really delivers hard-core nutrition to those who want a nutrient-dense form of protein in their diet.

The nutrition facts on Sproutein

Each serving is 4 scoops (57g) and contains:

• 5g of fat (all plant-based, healthy fats)
• 35g of carbohydrates (all plant-based, low-glycemic carbs)
• 11g of protein
• 13g of fiber

So how does Sproutein taste?

For starters, it's a bit on the gritty site. I recommend blending it with a smoothie rather than just stirring it into water. The texture is definitely not as smooth as something like SunWarrior brown rice protein (, but this is understandable, given that it's made of freeze-dried sprouts.

The taste is quite nice if you're really into hard-core raw foods nutrition. I loved it. But for regular folks, this product is too green-tasting and intense. In other words, your kids are probably not going to ask for seconds. It's not a mainstream consumer product. It's just for the most well-informed health-conscious consumers who understand the incredible healing power of sprouts and want a superfood supplement that delivers it.

Compared to other superfood products, it's nowhere near as tasty as Delicious Greens 8000, for example (, nor does it come close to the really smooth taste of Emerald Balance ( It's more along the lines of superfoods from Dr. Jameth Sheridan of HealthForce (, which are widely considered the most nutritionally-potent superfood powders in the world.

Fresh is still better

One thing you should always consider about superfood supplements (including this one) is that fresh is always the best. If you can eat fresh sprouts, that's better than eating freeze-dried sprouts. And freeze-dried is better than cooked. So always go for the fresh, raw, living foods when you can. At times when you don't have access to fresh, go for the superfood supplements (or use them together).

For example, each day I blend up a fresh batch of raw food juices. I blend organic celery, carrots, kale, parsley, citrus fruits and berries into a delicious RAW green smoothie. But I don't stop there: I add superfood powders like Boku Superfood (, Living Fuel ( or Emerald Balance. I'm now starting to add Sproutein powder to that mix.

This gives me a combination of fresh, RAW superfoods and the freeze-dried superfood powders. I also like to use Vitamineral Green or other nutrient-dense powders to crank up the nutrient density of the drink.

If I were traveling and blending up food in a hotel room, I would obviously have to go with just the straight powders, and that's fine for a few days, but I always get back to fresh, raw juices as quickly as possible.

Sproutein is also more convenient than live, fresh sprouts. Growing sprouts takes time and effort, and if you've ever grown a farm of sprouts in your own kitchen, you know how much work it can be. Sproutein makes it simple for you: Just eat the powders, and you can eliminate the time (and mess) of growing the sprouts yourself. For that fact alone, it's worth every penny.
