Hemp Protein Organic Superfood
This is The One!
Having tried a selection of types of protein powders, pea, goat milk and whey, hemp is the winner. I love the nutty flavor of this product which I consume plain with almond milk and water, but also tastes good with fruits. The hemp powder is filling, satisfying and easy to digest. Thanks to Swanson for offering such a great variety of products.

I find this product to be tasty. I use it with pea protein to help supplement my protein since I am lactose intolerant. I add it to my veggies and fruit that I Juice.

Nutiva makes great hemp protein powder. I find it to be easily digestible and to have a fairly neutral flavor when added to other ingredients. Also, this is a wonderful price for such a good product.

Best for my system.
I use this product almost every morning. I mix it with 1/4 banana, 1/2 tbls each of organic carob & cocoa and green nutrition in a blender.
Tastes great (gets better once you are used to it), gives me energy and keeps my system running smooth.
Sometimes I have something extra but usually this keeps me till lunch.
I even recycle the container which is wonderful and use it for my Carob & Cocoa which I buy in 1 lb bags - unsweetened.

More Uses than a Monkey Wrench
Vegan protein, very soluble in liquid. Needs an extract flavoring and Stevia to sweeten it, in my opinion. VERY easy to digest, and very sustainable -- hemp is the new wonder-plant!

Tastes Good; minimally processed
Nutiva Hemp Protein 15g should not be thought of as just a protein powder. It mixes just as easily as Pea or Soy, and tastes just as good, if not better. Plus, it is a minimally processed natural product, containing fiber, omega oils, easily digested protein, and other vitamins and minerals. I mix it with pea protein, coconut milk, a dash of cinnamon and a splash of maple syrup. Don't forget to refrigerate it after opening. Take note though that hemp seed powder is not a complete protein. It is somewhat deficient in lysine and so cannot be called a complete protein -- at least according to the FDA. Yet when mixed with pea protein, which has a surplus of lysine, the resulting drink is a complete protein. That's exactly what I do

I really enjoy this protein. It has a great flavor and I love the fact that it is organic!

This is my favorite tasting hemp protein powder. Beware of other hemp powders that have more fillers in it. I first took it during a cleanse, putting in my smoothies. I still like to put in my smoothies for added protein. Unfortunately, a lot of scoops are required to get the amount of protein for the servings. I don't like to put more than 2 as it does get too powdery with any more than that.

Besides pea protein, this is my 2nd favorite for smoothies.

Great For Smoothies
I make my green smoothies with a scoop of Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein to make a fast, easy, nutritious morning meal. It blends well, has a faint nutty flavor, is easily digested, and I have more energy and focus for the rest of the day. I love this stuff!

First time buying this; the taste is "different" something to get use to. I do feel a difference. Lots of energy

Great plant protein
This is a great brand of hemp protein! It mixes well and has a mild earthy taste. I add it to my homemade protein bars for a little boost. I have found it causes gas though (especially for my hubby ;) so be aware of that. Very pleased with the product overall

Wish it mixed better.
The taste isn't anything special, but no hemp protein tastes amazing anyways. I wish it mixed better, but hey, the value is incomparable.

Hard To Digest
This would be a good product if it where easier on the intestinal system. Not for me.

I really enjoy using the Hemp protein powder in my smoothies, blends easily and doesn't overpower the other ingredients. I especially like the effects that I get from the protein. I am a gardener and need protein in the morning to do the work and this product does its job in keeping me going!

good protein source
This is a great source of protein. I am very happy with it. I am always looking for extra protein sources since I eat a vegan diet. It is good stirred in a smoothy or mixed with Coconut Water.

Vegan protein alternative
Works well in green smoothies and keeps me feeling full longer. Great alternative to animal protein! Also best price around.

Nutiva Hemp Protein
I am new to plan protein. I really enjoy mixing this with almond milk and peanut butter. My wife doesn't like the texture, but it doesn't bother me at all. The high fiber in this protein keeps me feeling full for a long time.

This mixes better than anything I've purchased from a store

This brand of hemp protein powder is superior to other brands that I've tried. Less gritty and tastes good when mixed with a flavoring.

Best Product Ever, indeed!!
I'm delighted with this protein shake!! I don't eat much meat nor I take enough of dairy products, so it's quite difficult to reach daily amount of needed proteins with food only, as it is especially hard to combine a nutritious postworkout meal. I've tried several protein shakes, but they are all too sweet, they all have unpleasent taste&their smell is even worst. Also, all of them are burdersome to the digestive system. Then I discovered Nutiva shake, which is very pleasant tasting, it melts well in different types of beverages and it also fits quite good with soya jogurt. Also, it makes a great breakfast when you're short with time. It has the lowest price on Swansonvitamins.com; the only problem is that they don't sell it's biggest package-I warned the customer service about it and I hope they will include it to their offer, so I can keep ordering it from my favourite website :)

Not Pleased with the Taste or Texture
Altough this is a very healthy product , I can barely tolerate the taste. I've tried mixing with rice milk and orange juice, but I still don't like the taste. Also the texture is too gritty. I will try mixing it in the blender with some fruit so it will hide the taste. I doubt I will purchase this again.

For people who may have challenges digesting whey protein, hemp is your alternative. Not only does it have a nice, nutty flavor that you could actually drink in just water, but it is so easily assimilated in the digstive system! I love my hemp...

Good protein powder
I'm very happy with this product. The claims that it doesn't make you gassy and bloated like whey based protein powders are right on. The taste is not offensive, but rather herbal, and is delicious with other items mixed in for a smoothie (even though I use use 8 TBSP to get 30 grams of protein after my workouts). I mix it with coconut or almond milk, and whatever berries or fruit I have on hand and sweeten to taste . Makes a delicious and nutritious shake that maintains my muscle mass and keeps me satisfied for hours.

When I took this product the first time. ( I made a smoothie), I felt so good and so much energy for the whole day. I will continue to take it and see if any other changes occur.
