Rated 5 out of 5 by AmaranthRose Pea Protein Powder
This protein powder is almost flavorless. It doesn't taste like peas. It mixes well in liquids and would be good in a smoothie to add protein. It could also be added to baked goods as a partial substitute for eggs. It has a slightly thickening effect when stirred into water. This is priced at a good price for the quantity obtained.

My first order was a trial order since this was the first time I had ordered from Swanson and also the first time I had used the Organic Pea Protein Powder. I was very pleased with the price and the taste of this product and have already placed a second order.

I love this protein powder. It doesn't have a strange taste like some other protein powders, and gives me energy. I only taste the fruit, milk and juice I have in the smoothies. I also love that it is organic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FormerYooper Doll it up a bit!
Just received my first shipment a couple of days ago. Tried it the first time just mixing it in cold water. The taste & texture wasn't that great, but tolerable. I was surprised how full it made me feel for several hours. I can see why they caution on the label to use this as a supplement and not a meal replacement. Be sure to follow those directions as you may be tempted to use this as a meal since it is so filing. So today, I made the following shake & it tastes out of this world .... Mix well a scoop of the pea protein, 8oz. unsweetened almond milk, half of a banana & a teaspoon of Swanson Xylitol. OMGosh! This is so yummy! So, for those who don't like the taste of the pea protein by itself ... doll it up a bit!

I got this product when you could buy one and get one free and I believe it was a good deal. The protein powder has a good flavor and taste better than whey. Easily the best non-dairy, organic protein supplement.

Those of us older than dirt need more protein than we once did. For near-vegans, this can be a little challenge. This protein powder doesn't have the dreaded almost ubiquitous lactose, nor gluten, nor rice with its arsenic. It's super easy to use. I like peas, a lot, but don't like everything I eat to taste like pea soup, which it does with this powder mix. But, it's a good product, for a good price, and worth working into the diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ROBH Not bad
I was a little skeptical about pea protein since I hate the taste of peas but this is actually pretty good! I mix it with some chilled water, vanilla drops, powdered stevia (NOW Foods), Maca root powder (Swanson), and a pinch of Himalayan Crystal salt (Swanson) and it tastes just fine. It's a bit bland on it's own. I usually use this as a supplemental protein since it isn't a complete protein (not sure how important that is). I like to add a scoop of this to another vegetarian protein powder (MRM Veggie protein).

Gives you a good protein that satisfies hunger. I mix it with organic fruit and a little stevia and it is great.

If you have a slight lactose intolerance problem like me, then you probably are looking for other sources of protein besides whey protein after working out. As I've seen others point out, drinking this protein powder down as is would be awful. Just like any other plain supplement drink out there, this one needs a little love :) I highly recommend using stevia (to taste), a tsp of cinnamon and a hint of vanilla almond milk when making this. Also, I've found if you add 1/2 hot water first and stir for 20-30 seconds it dissolves the powder so you don't have clumps floating around. Though the powder will settle down in the bottom of the glass if it isn't drunk rather fast.
Overall, I definitely recommend this as this is organic and, in today's society, you never know what you are eating when you purchase something outside the non-GMO / organic range.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AnnaP Absolutely Awful taste
I have tried many different protein products and this by far is the worst tasting protein I have ever had!!! I like peas but have yet to find anything that can disguise the horrible taste. I am stuck with an unopened jug and 1 that I will have to throw away!
I really don't know how anyone can drink this????
Do not buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToYourBestHealth Good Source of Veg-based Protein
This is a good source of vegetable-based protein offering a healthier alternative to processed protein sources.. I really like the fact that it's certified organic AND non-GMO. The Swanson price and great delivery make it an even better purchase. I add this to my smoothies and it blends well.

Swanson Pea Protein is a quick easy breakfast before my exercise in the mornings. Also a snack in the evenings combined with some cocoa for a satisfying and healthy chocolate fix.

I have been drinking diet supplements for quite some time now and I can't believe people are trying to drink this great source of protein and essential nutrients straight up! Good gosh people, mix it with whatever you like and it becomes palatable. One of the best attributes of pea powder is it's ease of digestion. It's quite worth the effort to mask the bitterness.
P.S. I'm glad I found this website! Saving me quite a few bucks.

Mixes well with just about anything as the flavor is not strong; I generally mix it in with my morning green tea and almond milk with a bit of honey to get my protein without having to eat breakfast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustTerry Happy with this product.
I mix this with my regular protein drink on days I workout, which is about five days a week. I find I am less inclined to nap when I get home after my morning three hour swim, on the days I use this. I like that it adds more protein, without a lot more calories. Also, I like the many other benefits pea protein offers over other kinds of protein. It does not taste good, I will admit, but disguised with my other organic chocolate protein drink, plus a little added stevia and chocolate it is fine. I mix it in milk. I do not get hungry for quite awhile after drinking this. I think it would be fine in smoothies also. The price was pretty good.

Okay, this IS a good source of vegetarian protein, and is a good value at BOGO. Having said that, the flavor is on the horrid side, and I LOVE peas. The smell is also not to my liking. Granted, I don't want any added sugars or artificial flavorings in anything that I consume, but still. Just add this to something that has flavor to hide it's taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 737Healthnut Yummy and creamy
We add this to our nutribullets (aka smoothies), and it really makes them creamy smooth. It almost gives a malted flavor. We haven't tried it by itself though. We love the fact that its organic, non GMO, in addition to catching as a BOGO! It offers 15 g of protein per serving, and its healthy vegan protein.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lindylu Best Pea Protein
We love this pea protein! When on sale, it's an excellent value. It mixes/dissolves quickly without those gritty lumps of the other brands (especially works well in a shaker cup). Very mild tasting ... Mix it with lemon water and stevia ... or add it to an almond milk and berry smoothie. I'm vegan, hubby isn't, but we both love this for a protein source before or after our workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MJH321 great alternative to whey
I've tried all sorts of whey proteins (including Isopure, GNC, etc# but could not digest it well before, during or after workouts. So I switched to plant-based proteins to supplement my protein-intake... and this pea protein powder is the only protein powder I can easily digest. I started with half-scoops at a time to make sure it digested well - and it did..and no gas-sy feeling either.
My recipe to make taste better: blend almonds #or another tasty nut) to a powder and add the pea protein & big table spoon of Organic HONEY.... for a simple & tasty protein drink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by roselover Not my favorite
I am on crusade to find a protein powder that works best for me. My understanding is that pea protein is made from yellow split peas. Quite honestly I love yellow split pea soup (homemade) in the winter and would eat that before I would buy the pea protein powder again. It's all about the flavor. I don't mind the somewhat gritty texture but have a hard time with the flavor. I got this product on a BOGO so I finished one container and returned the other. I am glad I tried it but will keep looking for a tastier protein booster!
