Rated 3 out of 5 by Petite1 Yuckiest tasting I've had
As others have mentioned, this is a gritty and unpleasant hemp protein compared to others I've tried, which may mean it's more authentic and natural.
I don't know how hemp can taste so different from brand to brand. Curious.
Further, the package did not reseal (manufacturing defect?), so I had to fold it over and clip it.

The price value is good and taste is fine, however the package does not want to seal as it properly should. I have to keep it in an additional plastic zipper bag.

I found that this protein powder does not mix well in smoothies--the taste and grittiness. I had truly hoped that I had found a good vegan protein for my breakfast smoothie but I am very disappointed so far. Not sure if it is the manufacturer's product or a fact of all hemp protein products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by justicefinder Love the product, be sure to check expiration date
I love this product & add it to numerous things, however the last bag I received had an expiation date soon to come! I checked the bag I had ordered months earlier that was almost gone & it had the same expiration date! So buyer beware & be sure to check dates & let customer service know!

Rated 3 out of 5 by noGMOplease organic hemp powder
This product was 6 months from expiration when it arrived. When I purchase it in the health food store it often has 2 years left. I find this to be true more and more with swanson and I am starting to order elsewhere . Swanson was always my first choice for good value. But if products expire before I can use them they are of no value. I would like to see the expiration or production date along with the price.

I agree, this is not the most appealing protein powder. Try 1 Tbs. hemp protein powder plus 2 Tbs. Now Pea Protein powder in 8 or 10 oz. glass with equal parts water & V-8 juice. Then add some celery salt to taste.

Not a bad taste, but still gritty. Upset my stomach. I just don't like powders! You can't ever get rid of that powder grit!

This product is as good as it will get with hemp protein, organic and the best protein value you can get from hemp. I used it many times in smoothies and with buckwheat as a oatmeal substitute but I still feel stuck with this product before it expire.
It taste okay but it takes a lot to get a lot of protein that a whey or iso protein powder could give you and it's full of soluble dietary fiber so it needs water with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Snewl It's okay
Swanson's was out of my usual pea protein, so I decided to try something different. First, I didn't pay close enough attention to the label and didn't realize it must be refrigerated after opening (pea protein doesn't require refrigeration), so I ended up throwing some of it out. Second, I couldn't get past the ugly color it made things. I tried it in smoothies, oatmeal and added to pancake batter. Although the taste isn't bad at all, it has an ugly green hue to it. Seriously, nobody would eat the pancakes but me (and the dogs) because of the color. Also, it doesn't have as much protein per serving as pea protein and some other types.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pastywhitegurl great vegetarian protein source
I was looking for a protein powder that was non-dairy and non-soy, and I'm pretty happy with this hemp protein product. I also like that it gives you those good omega 3's along with the protein.
It's dark green, but that works in well with my green drink smoothies. There is a bit of chalkiness in the texture, but you get used to it. It's a good value when compared with similar products on other sites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Damun Effective wide spectrum protein
Hard to find in the USA for reasons everybody knows about. This organic hemp protein dissolves easily in a blender. I find it best with green, leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, chard. It contains all 21 animo acids and a good deal of essential fatty acids, so it's an "all-in-one" food. I use it primarily to recover from intense physical activity. In my experience, is more effective than isolated proteins found in the huge plastic jars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JudyL516 USE IN MY SMOOTHIES
I add a scoop to every protein smoothie I make, but also use other proteins from Swanson. Pure Pea, Brown Rice (Choc, berry or plain) and whey isolate. I dont know how it might be adding to my dietary needs other than what i have read ....but certainly there is no taste problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dinobaga it feels dry using it on anything but that is mostly to the nature of product rather than anything else. will have to find ways of how to consume it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slicnick awesome protein source
I was looking for an alternative source of powdered protein to make shakes with instead of dairy based sources. this is an excellent product. I have mastered the art of making a fruit shake with this product in it that taste awesome.
The product has an earthy taste too it which does not bother me ive had it in just water a few times. My wife made a shake and put a tbsp of peanut butter with it and you could not taste the hemp.
bottom line if your looking for a healthy organic non dairy source of protein this is a good product i highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by choomuff Really good tasting protein
I wanted more protein in my diet with no cholesterol or sodium. Refrigeration after opening is the only thing I don't like. It easily blended into my daily soup and added a wholesome taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vegiegirl Very pleased
This along with the soy protein goes into my smoothies every day plus other other products from Swanson's. It is very smooth and the taste is enjoyable. And with the Hemp Seeds goes into my veggie patties.
