Plant-based, tastes great!
All from sprouted grains, completely organic, NO Soy, No Garbage. This powder is very fine, mixes easily and has a delightful nutty aroma to it.

A Few Problems
I am certain that this protein powder is high quality and a good source of non-whey/soy based protein but it doesn't mix as well as other protein powders I've tried in almond milk. This is a big deal for me because I only use almond milk in my protein smoothies. And it's not bad if you mix in some fruit or berries but the taste of the powder itself while fairly tasteless is extremely chalky.

Only protein powder that does not hurt my stomach
I have been using this protein for at least 6 months. I have tried almost every protein out there. This is the only one that does not bother me. Others either made me feel nauseous or gave me sharp pains in my stomach.
I love the neutral taste that can be used with any flavor. I also appreciate that there is no sweet taste to it so you can control how much "sweet" you want.

This product is a sugarless way of getting protein.

Great Product Awful Packaging
Love the ingredients for this product. Product is extremely fine, appear high quality, and lots of benefits; BUT, the container is such a disaster and I lost at least 1/3 or more just trying to deal with the size of the top and label slides around suggest taking it off. Anyone without a very large hand will have difficult opening and closing the top. I am an older small framed woman and I believe I split more than I got to drink. Also, didn't mix up very well in just water or almond milk. Wouldn't order again due to packaging issues.

Great "whey" to get your protein!
I saw this product advertised in my local organic grocery store magazine. I thought this looks great, especially the raw ingredents. I checked on Swanson's and sure enough they had it, and at a cheaper price than the local store. I can't imagine all the good and healthy stuff this protein powder does for my body! I mix it with almond milk too, thanks to the suggestion from a past reviewer. I plan on using this product for many years to come!

Best Vegan Protein Powder!
I used to use Whey and noticed a remarkable difference in my strength. Then I became vegan and started using Soy. I used many different brands, but didn't notice much help in my workouts. Then I read about the Hexane used in the processing of Soy Protein Isolate, and stopped using it. I was getting weaker, until I found this stuff. I love the taste, and I'm able to gain strength in my workouts again. It is wonderful, and so much cheaper through Swanson's.

Definitely Raw Protein!
As a vegetarian, this protein definitely satisfied my need for a high quality supplement. My only qualms are that the product is a bit messy and doesn't blend into drinks as well as I would have hoped. The raw taste is also very evident. I personally am not too bothered with it, but you may consider one of the flavors if you don't want the taste of straight veggie protein.

Best Protein Source
I've been looking for a non-whey, non-gluten protein source, and this fits the bill. The taste is neutral so it goes in just about any shake concoction. It doesn't mix particularly well, but it will mix eventually. High protein grams and good price.

nice package of raw protein
It is organic and nice to take..tried my first table spoon today..in fruit juice, water, and 4 table spoons of yogurt blended well together as a breakfast drink..It was nice.. I like the idea of sprouts..which means it has been enzyme activated...from the seeds... the combination of products feels well balanced and comfortable to digest. because of the enzymes..
I would definitely consider reordering this for myself again when I finish this
I especially like the packaging design and concept of shrinkwrap labeling and usable container ... ..

I bought this as an alternate source to whey as it is gluten free and very natural - wasn't sure what to expect due to some of the other reviews...however, after getting this and simply adding it to the 40 calorie almond milk (8 oz) I found it pretty tasty. Then I started playing around with it - I would blend up 1/4 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup veggie berry juice - 3 ice cubes, spinach, raw stevia and 1/2 cup water and blend - then take a shaker cup and dump in and add RAW protein mix and shake and it was DELICIOUS! It is actually one of my favorite drinks (and healthy) drinks to make. This in addition to the other Garden of Life product has made a huge difference in how I feel and I am so happy with this company - too we love Swansons for their large variety and cost effectiveness. Anyway - great product if you are looking for another source of protein!! Thumbs up!

I've tried several brands of "protein powder' and GoL's Raw Protein is the winner in my opinion. I combine it with SuperGreens, some sweetner and some cocoa.... yummmmm! An excellent meal substitue.

The ingredients look healthy. thats why I bought it. but unlike most protein powder drink mixes....this one tastes really awful . Chaulky tasting. mixing with milk doesnt help. mixing with other protein powder(chocolate) doesnt help. I cant see myself buying it again. a shame,because the ingredients are good.

Orangic & Raw
I just tried the Raw Protein and I have to say I think it's pretty good. Those who are use to a sweeter protein drink may have to add fruit or juice. I mixed it with water and organic blueberries and a splash of coconut milk (vanilla flavored) and this really was tasty. I love that its raw, organic and has no fillers or synthetic anything. To me, its worth adding a little fruit for taste as I think the quality of the product is superior to most out there.

Very difficult to use
The powder goes everywhere. Very messy. I tried using this at work at lunch and it went all over my office. I decided that I will wait until they come out with the travel packs of this. It did seem to help in terms of protein supplements.

I Love this Protein Powder!
I have dairy & gluten allergies and don't do well with soy protein. I love the taste (and I have tried many other protein powders that I didn't like), and I feel great when I'm taking it. I also love that it has enzymes and probiotics.

I need an non-dairy protein powder. Raw Protein fits the bill. The fact that it is a raw, whole food item makes it that much better!
I mix it into a flavored, no calorie vitamin water and sometimes add an Emergen-C packet to give the drink a C-boost and added flavor.
It gives me energy with easy digestion so that I can complete my fitness routine without stomach upset and fullness.

This stuff tastes bad. Couldn't add enough sweetner to overcome the taste, besides sweetner overrules the whole notion of health food anyway. Also always felt hungry, so the amount of protein in it is nebulous or ineffective

Highest Quality Protein Ever!!
Very neutral taste & easy to mix with SuperGreens or fresh fruit, etc. Taste is very pleasant and the ingredients are fantastic! I've finally found a high quality protein with all the ORGANIC ingredients I've been looking for!!
