Oryzatein Organic Brown Rice Protein
I mix this rice protein powder with pea protein to come up with a nice amino acid balance for my daily shake. Add to it a bit of gelatinized maca, raw cacao, and stevia with ice water..... healthy and delicious.

Good substitute for Whey Protein Powder
I cannot consume whey, so I use this rice protein powder instead. I use it along with almond meal to bake breads and to make a good breakfast with eggs and flax seed meal.

I had to return this stuff. It is gritty and doesn't mix well. Didn't like the taste either. It's great that Swanson stands behind their products.

Good vallue for a different kind of protein
I eat this protein as well as pea protein in shakes as alternatives to milk and soy based proteins. This rice protein has a mild flavor and is great in smoothies.

Great product for the price
I use this in my protein shakes and enjoy it very much. The price is excellent compared to many other brands, and the quality is just as good.

Brown Rice Protein
Did not like the texture or the smell. Will not use the product.

If you are someone that has to watch your caffiene intake, then this is the product for you. I love the taste too. Great product. Mexes best in a blender or with some type of a blender other than a spoon.

Great source of vegetable protein
This is a great alternative to animal protein sources. I love that it is organic as I've heard terrible things about arsenic levels in brown rice lately. I mix this in a smoothie with chia seeds, sprout protein and fruit. It mixes well, dissolves completely and the taste is great when combined. I like that it is not flavored, as that makes it better for mixing.

I tried several other powder proteins on the market but had difficulty digesting them -- upset my stomach. I have not had any trouble with this product and I really like that it is organic. I add it to my smoothie each morning. Now on my second container.

First time trying protein powder
This is a great product enjoy it in my smoothies.

This protein drink needs to be put into a blender and it still comes out so powdery and taste so bad that it gags me. I could not drink a full glass. I returned it and am waiting for my refund.

Product is awesome. It is what it says it is. Eating gluten and dairy free, I am satisfied with this product. Only wish it came in a bigger container. Will continue to re-order this product.

Brown Rice Prot.
Very good product. However, The only problem is that it doesn't mix extremely well. I cannot see a way around the mixing problem, but one may exist. This is the only reason why I gave it a 4. Will probably order again.

Not too tasty, but high quality
The texture is the worst part. It's not flavored so I don't expect to taste good. It's a little chalky tasting, like a soy protein Naked juice. But the quality is nice and it's very pure. Unfortunately, I haven't been using it long enough to tell if it produces the gains like whey protein, but I feel cleaner using it. If you're looking for an alternative to whey protein, this mixed with some pea protein and maybe some hemp protein would set you up for some vegan protein awesomeness!

Looking to cut back on red meat .
This powder is easy to digest.
I mix it with a little apple juice.

I love this product, I've ordered it twice. I mix this 1/2 and 1/2 with the whey and it keeps me full.

I have tried brown rice protein from several sources and could never get pass the taste. It is too gritty. If you are looking for a vegan protein source, try Swanson Vitamin Pure Pea Protein. It's smooth and has more of a neutral taste.

I like this product!
It is not as gritty as some rice protein powder. It mixes very well and taste very good. Great quality! I would like to see a vanilla version of it!

It's rather fluffy and light. I have to use two scoops each time to feel somewhat like a breakfast/snack. The taste is very neutral too, rather pleasant.

I'll have to try the other reviewer's smoothie recipe. But I've got to say that one scoop added to my usual fruit-and-yogurt smoothie made a noticeable difference in taste, texture and color... all for the worst. I'll stick to my unflavored whey!
I imagine this is fine for baking... I'll probably use it up in my bread machine. But if you're buying it as a kicker for your usual smoothie, brace yourself for some unappetizing results!

Best I've Found So Far!
I've tried Jarrow and NutriBiotic brands of brown rice powder, and I think this one is the best. The others are fine, but this isn't as strongly flavored (which I like, because I don't like to taste it in my smoothies) and it's a great deal. Also, I like that it's organic. I can't tolerate other protein powders, esp. egg white or whey, so brown rice protein offers an well-tolerated alternative. Note, this does have some flavor, but it's not overpowering. I found this to have a very slight almost nutty flavor, and, if you use it in a smoothie (with a blender), it blends very well with very little gritty texture (which all powders seem to have). I haven't tried stirring this into anything with a spoon, so I can't comment on how well it mixes, but I don't think any powder is going to be very palatable that way. Toss a scoop into your fruit smoothie, though, and it's great. Try this:
8 oz. organic soy or almond milk
1 scoop of this powder
1 frozen banana
1 Tbs. cold pressed EV organic olive oil
1 Tbs. ground flax
1 Tbs. wheat germ
1/4 cup or so of oatmeal (uncooked!)
Squirt of raw honey (optional)
Small handful of kale or spinach leaves (optional -- you don't taste them, promise!)
A couple of frozen strawberries (optional)
Blend and drink immediately for a satisfying and very healthy breakfast or snack!
