Pea Protein Powder
Good product. I am trying to get away from whey protein since it is animal and stick with vegetables and fruits for breakfast as a source for protein. This product is just what I was looking for.

Protein Powder Supplement
Best price for protein supplement. Plus, I learned at Swanson's site about Pea Protein Powder for the first time. Excellent for those not wanting whey or soy derived powder. dredyoung

Still the Best Value
It's too bad the manufacturer changed their formula and, in the process, lowered the protein count. But this is still the most protein you get for your dollars spent (at least compared to the other non soy-based protein powders on this site).
After adopting a mostly vegetarian diet, I've had problems maintaining adequate protein levels. I began using this product and have since brought them back up to normal.

Decent pea protein
This is ok in green smoothies... Good texture but so so in taste.... Doesnt add flavor other than pea. I use this mostly for cooking pancakes and works well.

Good protein product
I put this in a shake every day and love it. I mix this with either frozen spinach or kale, 2 tablespoons of flax meal, egg yolks, Greek yogurt.
Make sure to use enough water, it can be gritty if too thick.
Has a solid BCAA profile, especially when mixed with yogurt (animal protein source). Good value for a month supply.

One serving is far too high in sodium at 330 mg.

Best Vegan Protein
I have a lot of dietary restrictions, so neither animal based nor soy based proteins are options for me. I have tried tons of other proteins, and for the money this is the best by far. Plus it has no added sweeteners which is a must for me. I drink four of these per day with water alone and though very earthy, the taste is totally palatable and, though I know this is a dissenting opinion for sure, enjoyable.
*As of writing the nutrition facts on this website are incorrect for this product. It now only has 24g of protein per serving. I inquired with NOW about the change, and they say it is a result of them "upgrading to a better source".*

Horrible Taste After Formula Change In Febuary
I have been using NOW Foods Pea Protein Powder since November, 2010 and the taste was just fine until my last order, March, 2013. The texture is different, it doesn't mix as well and the taste is horrible. A NOW Foods representative informed me that they had changed their formula and switched to a new supplier and had no plans to change back even though complaints about the bad taste had already started pouring in. If you somehow manage to gag down a full serving (33grams), check the "new" label and notice that you get 4 grams LESS protein than before; 24 grams VS 28 grams. This is my 1st ever return to Swanson. I decided to try the Swanson Pea Protein - 100% Pure and it tastes better than the old NOW Foods product did. I really hope Swanson doesn't decide to change their product or switch to another supplier!

Great protein powder, nice taste
I really enjoy this powder. I find many powders to be too "fake" tasting, but this thickened my drinks nicely and I didn't mind the pea taste. It is much better IMO than the fake taste of other drinks.

Love this protein powder
We have tried just about every kind of protein powder and this one is awesome. It has a great flavor, mixes well and has all of the ingredients you want/need in a protein supplement.

first purchase and pleased
i was glad to find out that not only did this company have a product that so few others carry, but the service was good to. this product was exactly what i was looking for and tastes like pea soup - without the delicious salt and ham flavors! (i still like it, other people want to put a sweetener in it.)

This is the most highly recommended form of vegetable protein available.
It has a nice slow adsorption. It makes a perfect addition to morning oatmeal, because it modulates the carbohydrate spike from the oatmeal and kills that mid-morning hunger .
Highly recommended. Try it.

I used to love the NOW pea protein, but they recently changed sources and it does not taste the same. I actually enjoyed the pea taste that it used to have. The flavor is now completely different and it ruins the flavor of anything I mix it with.

another great product
The best thing for all flavors of smoothies.

Great product for those with allergies
I started using pea protein to supplement my diet after eliminating soy, corn, peanuts and milk from my diet for allergy testing. I actually prefer the convenience and taste of the pea protein over other protein powders. It is very easy to mix this into a smoothie or hot oatmeal. Some may not care for the slight pea taste to this powder at first. How does it perform? I have done quite well on this product while building muscle/reducing body fat. In 8 weeks (combined with exercise regime) I lost 3" around my hips/tummy and 1" on my thighs. My muscle tone is much improved.

Does the job!
This is one of the best prices for this product. I purchased it after reading about JJ Virgin's plant-based protein powder. I mix 4oz. coconut milk, 4-6 oz. water, 1 scoop of powdered greens, and 1 scoop of this pea protein. I blend it up and drink it in the car on the way to work. Yes, it's peas. No, it's not tasty but it's tolerable especially when you know it's so healthy for you. I'm sure I could flavor it with berries or something, but I don't have time nor do I care. It keeps me full and full of energy until lunchtime. LOVE this stuff!

Great source of protein
I add a scoop to my breakfast smoothie. Dissolves quickly. I will even add a scoop to split pea soup to up the protein content. Highly recommend.

Greater than Expectations!
A few days after Thanksgiving, I started losing weight, from 205, on purpose. I was tired of carrying around 5 bags of 5 pound sugar. I started using the pea protein after investigating the most effective and the most economical smoothie additive. I found it and I have bought six tubs since. I reached 176.I am on my new goal to get to 165 lbs. New Energy! Weight Loss through diet change alone.! This is from a coach who only believed in exercise ! What a difference!

I am amazed at the energy my husband awakes with, due to the uses of this product each morning. I am so very grateful that it is affordable! Our budget is really tight. This produce is a wonderful source of protein and great in our morning smoothies!
Thank you Swanson!

I bought this as an alternative to whey protein because it hurts my stomach. This is a great product for its high protein content, but I cannot seem to find a way to mask that terrible flavor! It's like drinking pureed peas (dal). I tried fruits for smoothies, but the pea taste still dominates. The husband blends it with chocolate powder, bananas and peanut butter. I think I am too traumatized to experiment further. He'll finish it though. By the way, Swanson offers the best price I've found to date!

Non GMO Pea Protein
It is becoming very difficult to buy protein products that are non GMO. If it doesn't say so on the label I think we can be assured it is genetically modified. This label does say non GMO, it mixes well and is not at all chalky etc. Swanson gives us a GREAT deal too! Almost all protein powders, even marked 100% whey, seem to contain soy and most soy is genetically modified. ie the Jarrow Optimal Plant Protein sounds great but on the label it says, "product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm". I don't want to put that in my body no matter my age etc! Read about Kettleman City and birth defects, Argentina and Monsanto.... Thank You, NOW!!

Pea Protein Powder is easily digestible, not too grainy, pleasant tasting, and comes with the confidence that it's all from vegetable sources.
Works great in morning smoothies - and provides long-lasting energy.
I've made this my main source for digestible protein powder. And I love the almost instant delivery from Swanson. It often arrives the day after I order!
Good stuff, people. The real thing. From a trusted supplier.

Love it as a soup!
I don't like shakes or anything sweet in the morning, but I've been searching for a high protein breakfast, since I can't stand flax or any cereals hot or cold. Eggs are not agreeing with me lately, and I'd have to have 4 each day to get proper amount of protein. I heard about this on a "show" and since I LOVE peas, I decided to try it. It mixed up better on the stovetop as a nice, warm soup for these chilly mornings! Yes SOUP! People have eggs for dinner, why not soup for breakfast!? I added a jar of baby food carrots, sea salt, garlic powder and curry powder. I'm going to add baby food peas next time, maybe some organic veggie or chicken broth. So easy! This is the one for me.
