Pea Protein - Unflavored
Pretty flavorless in a good way. Blends well with anything. I've gotten used to mixing it with cinnamon powder, calcium powder, and coconut milk. It's great and filling. I will admit it takes a while to "stir" it down. So if you could shake it (or if you had the time to blend it!) that would probably make your smoothies/drinks, etc. more fulfilling!

I was looking for a great, vegan protein option that didn't break the bank...and I found it. This protein really holds up in comparison with other protein powders on the market, in terms of grams of protein per serving as well as the amino acid profile. The fact that it *only* contains pea protein and not 100 other unnecessary ingredients is really great as well. There isn't much of a taste (which is really nice) - I blend it with my smoothies and it's fine. I just ordered it again and will continue to use it.

Good product, good value
I wasn't sure whether to order this product after reading some of the reviews re: taste. But someone put a recipe using cocoa powder and stevia with the powder. That's how I've been using it and it's been fine. I was using the JJ Virgin protein drink but it costs 3x what this does. I think it's a good product at a very reasonable price.

It definitely works
This protein definitely works. Everytime i search for any product on this website, i click on the "gluten free" and "vegetarian" tabs. When i did that for this product, it was the top result. I liked the fact that it was also vegan, non-gmo, AND it had so many ratings for it and it still had such a high score. So i read some of the reviews, looked though the ingredients, and thought that it sounded good enough for me to buy. I have a more cut and defined body type naturally, but when i started using this after workouts, i noticed that my "cuts" seemed more deeper as well as my muscles being more defined. The one and only problem that i have with this product is the taste. I almost didnt buy it because i just kept telling myself that pea protein sounded absolutely disgusting and it is sometimes... It's unflavored, so the taste isnt unbearable, but the aftertaste can be downright torturing and bitter. At first i thought it wasnt that bad until i started paying attention to the label and saw that i was putting too much water in the mix, which was diluting the flavor and probably the nutrients, so i started using 8 oz. of water with the mix and the pea flavor became a little more highlighted... I tried to mix it in with a fruit punch sports drink, but that only made it worse, so i figured i'd just stick to the water routne... But still, i will continue to buy it because it really, really works. It's definitely worth it, despite the taste and the price is 2nd to none. I cant wait to reorder again when i run out of my initial tub!

Very good product. I make protein shakes every morning. It is better for you than the Whey protein. :) I would recommend to anyone interested in living a healthy lifestyle.

protein in the best way not WHEY
If you are going to get protein, this is one way to do it not WHEY. This doesn't make my skin break out, and doesn't upset my stomach. Takes great with coconut milk, carrot juice is my favorite and anything else you prefer. I mix it with a fork and then beat it with an egg beater to fluff it up and then I take all my vitamins with it instead of drinking water with them. Best way NOT WHEY

Hmm, NOT unflavored
I bought this hoping to add protein to my diet at a lower calorie cost than meat. I tried it twice. One serving is 33 grams which is more than a quarter cup of powder; it contains 24 grams of protein and 120 calories. There are 27 servings in a 2 pound container. I tried mixing a quarter cup of powder into a glass of water. The flavor was really distinct and for me, really unpleasant. I don't like vegetable smoothies, and I can't imagine how bad the powder would make a fruit smoothie taste (not to mention that part of trying this was to keep my diet lower in calories). The second time I added it to V8 juice and that was only marginally more tolerable. Right now it sits in a cupboard while I try to figure out how to make myself use it.

I love, love, love sweets to a fault. I am very good about eating only cane sugar but sugar still adds to the calories. After I eat any carbs I always crave sugar and I have found that taking pea protein stops the sugar cravings.

I use this for my lunchtime smoothie
I use a scoop of this for my lunch smoothie, which is my meal. I was looking for something that didn't have flavors or any sweeteners in it, so this is perfect. The price is great. It isn't that tasty, but it isn't bad at all. I add blueberries and some other things to my smoothie that make it taste good.

I bought this after seeing pea protein recommended on a popular tv show. I was a little leery of the taste after I read several reviews that said it tasted like peas but decided to try it anyway. I don't understand the people who said they could taste nothing but peas. When I first opened it I stuck my finger in the powder and tasted it plain, without anything added to it and honestly it tasted just like you expect protein powder to taste like. When I mix it up in a smoothie made with almond milk, some frozen fruit and a little bit of stevia, it doesn't taste any different to me then any other protein drink personally I cannot taste anything that reminds me of peas. It leaves me feeling full for several hours after drinking it and much cheaper then a lot of other "protein" drinks on the market. Give it a try, I think it's worth the money.

No artificial sweeteners
I wanted a quality protein without artificial sweeteners, soy or dairy. This is a good product although a little gritty in my smoothie. I have found that adding a little agave syrup or honey smooths out the grittiness.

Best Purchase Ever!!! Okay one of them at least...
This is an EXCELLENT source of protein!!! Finding the right way to consume it will be your only hurdle. Everyone is different, but here are some things to keep in mind when consuming. You CAN somewhat disguise this in a smoothie in small quantities. If you like pea soup/porridge, then you are in for a treat. I don't have the exact measurements, but I will tell you approximately what I do. I should probably document it and submit it to Swanson for their recipes e-mails. I use two scoops of pea protein powder, a tablespoon of Better Than Bullion Organic Chicken Bullion, dash of salt, pepper, cayenne, cumin, onion & garlic powder. I have filtered hot water dispenser. I start out with just the pea protein in a bowl and slowly add the hot water mixing it until all of the pea protein is dissolved. If you add too much water too fast, you will get floaters/blobs. Once thoroughly mixed, you can slowly add more water stirring and add your bullion and other spices. You can add water to your desired consistency. Sometimes I eat it like soup, other times I eat it thick. Obviously this will give you some other ideas about ways to season it to your liking. Hope this helps! Sometimes I also add ground flax seed.

This is quick and easy to use. It digests easy and keeping you feeling full longer. Not flavored so you can add any of your favorites to spice it up.

Came across this when I had to do a liquid diet. Seems to liquidify well. gives a good amount of protein without any milk or soy products/by products in it.

Have searched for alternative to whey protein and found this product to be superior in mild taste, blend-ability, and protein source for my protein shake/smoothies that I make with fresh and frozen vegetables and fruit on a nearly daily basis.
As well the price is more than reasonable!

Much better than I expected....
Was looking for a good natural protein supplement and found this....was hesitant at first, didn't want a protein that actually tasted like peas. But it is really tasteless. I mix it with cocoa powder, stevia and ice to make a shake. Keeps me full & satisfied. Don't want to run out of this product.

This powder mixes well into my morning smoothie. It keeps me feeling full until lunch time, and is pretty easy to digest. I like that it is non-flavored so I can add to it what ever I want for taste.
