PEScience Select Protein PUMPKIN PIE Comes for 2021!

For years, we’ve been covering PEScience Select Protein, reviewing flavor after flavor. And for years, we’ve been telling them that they need to do a seasonal fall flavor to front-run their usual Peppermint Bark winter release.

PEScience Select Protein Pumpkin Pie

PEScience Select Protein Pumpkin Pie is here for a limited time!

Just months after they returned Cookies ‘n Cream Select Protein, PEScience has finally listened — Pumpkin Pie Select Protein is here!

You can now “Select the Best” in Pumpkin Pie flavor!

We couldn’t be more excited to announce the latest limited edition flavor of Select Protein here. It’s only available for a limited time, and we’re told they’re only running one batch, so jump in it while you can!

As we discuss below, PEScience was one of the first supplement brands to use milk protein (which has both casein and whey) alongside some added whey protein to make a sustained-release protein powder that is thick and delicious. The flavor systems are as superb as the protein blend, but pumpkin pie may put it on another level.

And don’t forget, PEScience publishes third party lab tests of their proteins.

We hope to get our video review up before it sells out, but first, sign up for our PEScience deal and news alerts and see our coupon-powered prices:

PEScience on the record

PEScience’s Instagram gives us a hint of what’s to come here:

You guessed it! Our limited edition Pumpkin pie 🎃 Select Protein is releasing Wednesday September 22nd at 9am EST! No, this isn’t just some basic pumpkin flavor. It tastes just like the name, just like the photo. You can even taste the notes of pie crust and whipped cream behind the pumpkin filling!

Pumpkin Pie Select Protein Nutrition Facts

PEScience always says to mix a scoop with about 8 ounces of cold water. You can take it any time of the day, but its sustained-release profile is great or between meal snacks, before bed, or as a dessert. Anytime you might not get some protein in for a while, Select Protein really shines.

PEScience Select Protein Pumpkin Pie Ingredients

The PEScience Select Protein Pumpkin Pie Ingredients – a dash less fat than Cookies ‘n Cream too! Click here for the full back label.

Below is what one scoop (31 grams) of Pumpkin Pie Select Protein brings:

  • Calories: 120

  • Protein: 24g

  • Carbohydrates: 3g

    • Sugars: 1g

  • Fat: 1g

This is actually slightly cleaner than a few of the other flavors, including the recent Cookies & Cream Select.

Select Protein’s Ingredients

The details are in our main PEScience Select Protein article, but below is a quick overview:

  • Select Protein Blend (milk protein isolate [comprised of 80% casein and 20% whey], whey protein concentrate 80%, leucine peptides)

    Select Protein’s blend is where PEScience has really differentiated from the industry. When you take milk protein isolate (which is mostly casein and some whey), then follow it up with high-quality whey protein concentrate (whose protein is of course all whey), you end up with roughly 50% casein, 50% whey. This means you have a slow (casein) and fast (whey) blend of protein, bringing the best of both worlds.

    Oh we’ll be 100% honest: we definitely stole this from PEScience’s newsletter and replaced their coupon with ours.

    It’s milk protein isolate, so it’s low on lactose, fat, and other sugars,[2] although some lactose will come along in the WPC-80 to follow.[3]

    The casein makes it thicker and richer, although it has a dash of grit to the mix (which PEScience happens to be excellent at incorporating into their flavor profiles), and it’s mostly smoothed out by the thickeners and whey protein concentrate anyway.

    Finally, PEScience added leucine peptides, since casein’s biggest drawback is that it’s lower in leucine compared to whey – so that problem is solved too!

    Overall, this protein blend is fantastic, and we’re often wondering why more brands don’t have a straight milk protein isolate protein — or a blend similar to this — somewhere in their lineup.

  • Natural and artificial flavors

  • Salt

  • Guar gum (thickener)

  • Sucralose (artificial sweetener)

  • Acesulfame potassium (artificial sweetener also known as “ace-K”)

All PEScience Select Protein Flavors

PEScience Select Protein Pumpkin Pie

They’re saying they even got a bit of the cream and crumble in the flavor system too!

    Hurry up with this one – Pumpkin Pie won’t last!

    Select Select Protein Cake Pop

    Cake Pop flavored Select Protein is here – the icing and the golden yellow cake all in one sip!

    When we last talked about Select Protein, it was the return of the Cookies & Cream flavor, which is part of the permanent menu. This is not that!

    This is a one-run limited edition batch, so if you’re interested and your budget lines up, don’t waste any time, it could be gone quickly — and we’re not sure how many retailers out there picked it up.

    Sure, there’s a bit of risk trying a new flavor, but when it comes to PEScience, is there really? Because this brand knows how to flavor their protein blend forward and back.

    Next, we even encourage PEScience to do a Pumpkin Pie (or Pumpkin Spice) type flavor for their Vegan Select Protein. But either way, remember that the brand has the MySelect Program, which discloses lab tests on their proteins.
