Organic Hemp Protein Hi-Fiber
This seemed to be the best value for hemp powder that I have run into. It is higher in protein and fiber than the seeds. It does not have the same nutty taste that the seeds have, but it tastes good too. I make smoothies every morning with it and I feel really good about it. I keep about a half pound in a container in the fridge for daily use and leave the rest in the freezer until I need it to keep it fresh.

I have been taking this protein for over three years now and I really think the health benefits are great. I wanted to find a protein powder that did not have any of the chemical processing and had plenty of healthy benefits. And after doing my OWN reading on hemp I knew this product was right for me. I use this hemp protein powder primarily in my smoothies.

Our Everyday Yummy Vegan Protein
First thing every morning we make our protein drink with plenty of fiber and delightful taste. Usually have another part-way through the day when energy is running low. This is the finest source of vegan protein I know of, and the price is unbelievable! I like to use it in cooking as well.

New favorite protein
I have to admit that the appearance can take a bit of getting used to, but I enjoy the flavor of this protein. I use it in with cereal and smoothies for an added protein boost.

Wonderful protein and fiber booster to foods. I put it in my yogurt or oatmeal to add nutrition. A very easy way to add fiber to one's diet. The taste is different, kind of nutty--different than flavored fiber powders. Its also a bit courser than other powders, but I love it.

Love the protein! It dissolves easily, doesn't have an over-bearing taste, and seems to be a good value.
Not a fan of the package it came in. I just dumped it into a few containers, threw one in the freezer, keep one in the fridge, and took one to work to keep in the fridge there.
Plan to add to home-made nutrition bars, smoothies, maybe to a cup of milk, and so on...

I add the hemp powder to my goat yogurt with blueberries as an afternoon snack. Delicious.

So Gross, but So Good
This is the worst tasting protein I've ever tasted... I recently went vegan, for health reasons, and gave up whey protein, and replaced it with a mixture of pea, rice, and hemp protein. This is by far the worst tasting of the three. It's not only the taste, but the texture. It's a must to mix it with juice or a smoothie, unlike my whey protein where I could just add it to water. However, I feel like this is a high quality product, and it's organic so I feel much better about using this pure healthy product with so much fiber compared to the cheap whey protein that was filled with a bunch of artificial flavors and colors. This product has a great price, and I'll probably get it again if I remain vegan. It's worth a try if you're on the fence about it!

hi-fiber protein powder
This product is hard to digest and will give you constipation.

Great Bargain. Taste - not so great.
It really does clean you out though! I mix with frozen fruit as a breakfast smoothie. After about a month, I got used to the taste, now it's okay. Great bargain!

good protein suppliment
I have been using this to make a protein bar - mixing a few cups with eggs, almond or peanut butter, crushed berries and coconut oil till cookie consistancy, then rolling in whole flax seeds, smushing till about 3/4 in thick bar and baking 15 min at 350. Extremely satisfying and powerful protein bar!

A good protein product, perfect in any smoothie. Thank you!

LOVE this product - have used for a while
I've been using this product for almost a year in my smoothies each morning. When I don't start my day out with this, by noon or early afternoon, I am craving a nutritional need. When I notice this, it's an "Aha!" moment, and I mix up a smoothie with my hemp protein and fiber, which satisfies my cravings and gets my energy back up. Another added benefit is the fiber. My weight is staying stable. If you're trying to lose weight, this product will also help. If you have never tasted hemp, you may not like it at first, but I started by adding in a little cocoa powder, but now that I used to it, I'm fine. My smoothies usually contain at a minimum, this product, some berries, and almond milk. The benefit of coming to terms with the taste will far outweigh the process. It's not that bad if you're already used to consuming "green" products.

This protein test good and mixes well with almond milk. It gives me strength.

superior super food
I absolutely love this stuff! I found it is a great addition to things like salmon burgers, extending hamburgers (which i share with my doggie by the way) as well as a standard ingredient in smoothies. I also add it to my buckwheat pancakes,
One of my favorite uses, however, it to make "earth balls.' a formula I have developed which includes shredded coconut, dates, chia & flax seeds, almond butter, vanilla, cocoa powder and stevia. I also throw in spirulina and chlorella and wheat grass powder and some high quality salt.
These are handy little devils that can be kept in the freezer and taken along instead of spending the time to whip up a smoothie--also, I prefer them in the colder weather, eaten while sipping some hot green tea...a fantastic combination!!
Nutiva products are consistently reliable, and I prefer the minimal packaging that this 3 pound bag comes in. Since I live in a rural area, going to the city to shop is a major journey, so it is great to be able to get items like this online and save lots of money on gas!

My sister told me to use hemp powder for protein. I had never tasted it but it's not bad.For breakfast I use this in combination of kefir,rolled oats,and nuts.

Good Protein Source
I can't think of a better protein powder if you want to avoid soy and dairy. Hemp could be our most valuable crop if it was legal to grow here. Let's hope things change soon.

This mixes very easily in a shaker with nut milk!

Great way to add both protein and fiber. Only drawback is that 4T is a lot to try to mix into a glass of water to drink! Because of that, I use this in other things and not by itself. I have mixed it in smoothies, added it to soups, sauces and other recipes to get the added nutrition. Great value.

Powder mixes well with juice and not an unpleasant taste-even passed as acceptable with my teenager! Helps to promote regularity and energy.

I'm very pleased with this product. Back for more, in fact. Quitting soy and whey protein. This is perfect. Good price and I'm used to drinking "green" stuff so the flavor seems quite fine to me.

Had to return
I bought this for the fiber content. It was more tolerable (taste) than some of the other powders I've tried, but I still couldn't force myself to take it. I did try it for a few days and it did seem to help my bowels, but I just couldn't tolerate the taste. It's got a nutty flavor, has a small amout of grittiness to it and the amount per serving was just too much for my tastebuds to handle.

Tastes great and smells potent, but the best part is the texture. It doesn't turn your drink into a soggy wet biscuit like so many proteins do.

Fresh nutty flavor
I can recommend this hemp powder as i am ordering my second bag - I am a vegan vegetarian and am changing the protein that i use from soy to hemp - for years i have used a soybased shake for breakfast but now am using this Nutivia hemp protein powder and i really like the flavor - it may take a little getting used to but to me it tastes a little nutty and fresh- i like it and am pleased with it as well as with the price - cheapest that i've found. Maybe Swanson will soon carry hemp seeds another of my new protein 'finds/loves'!
