Pea Protein - Unflavored
Neutral bland flavor, I blend in with Chocolate Whey and it's nice to get some plant product into my diet. Price is good for what you get

This protein powder is an excellent option for people looking for a non GMO, non-dairy, non-gluten protein powder alternative. It has more protein per serving than many of the other whey options, and the flavor is not all that bad. I normally mix it with vanilla or regular rice/almond milk and blend in some orange juice and it tastes pretty good. I would recommend this product.

Good protein source
I want a good protein powder for my morning smoothies. Did not want whey or soy. Very pleased with the pea protein. Mixes well and great protein for the cost. Sometimes mix with rice to get broader spectrum of amino acids.

Worked for me
Powder easily mixes with water using a spoon. Has a slight pea taste which I haven't found objectionable. Few if any gas issues. No digestion problems. Seems to make me feel full.

This is a great product. I have noticed more muscle gain switching to this natural form of protein from various whey products I've used in the past. The only negative is it is not flavored but as long as you mix it with something other than water it is a non issue.

Easy protein souce
As a vegetarian, I need all the good protein sources I can get, but I hate whey powder. This pea powder is a mild-tasting, easy to use substance.

Pretty Great Protein
I used this protein as a shake every morning and the taste is okay. It has definitely been one I had to get used to. However, add some fruit/veggies to it and it masks the actually pea protein very well.

Don't believe the hype!
I know that pea protein is supposed to be a very good form of protein, but I am not a bodybuilder or a huge fitness nut, I drink protein shakes more as meal replacements when I am too busy or too lazy to cook- I'd rather make a nutritious drink than eat junk. This stuff tastes nasty! Pea sounds like it would be a mellow or a bit sweet, but this is very bitter and chalky and did not mix up at all in a shaker cup- I had to blend it. I usually don't use much sweetener, mostly almond milk, yogurt and fruit, but I had to break out the steevia to cover the bitterness. I'll give it a few more tries and hope it grows on me, but I think I'll stick with whey protein- the taste and texture of this is too hardcore for me.

Great part of diet, but Not a complete protein
Nutrition: Not a complete protein, close, but technically no. It is low in methionine+cysteine by a hair. It would be wise to mix it with a complementary protein, such as hemp seed protein powder, which is low in lysine but high in methionine. The perfect complement. Flavor: Many people have complained about the flavor and texture. They have no basis for their complaints because all the powders are pretty bad. I mix them in one of those new mixer cups with coconut milk and maple syrup and a liquid vitamin. Tastes great. And it's a great source of very available protein. AND contains 35% of RDA iron. Always welcome in a vegan diet.

Inexpensive Super Protein
Excellent non-GMO protein source perfect for anyone seeking a non-dairy/egg/soy supplement. Neutral taste mixes great with other ingredients.

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!

Pea protein is a great product at a very reasonable price.

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.
