Pea Protein - 100% Pure
Good price-just wish it tasted good
Value wise, this is a pretty decent product. But that doesn't really help when it tastes awful. Gritty, clumpy, really messes up fruit smoothies. Have bought it a couple of times because, as a vegetarian I wanted to up my protein intake. But I have tasted other proteins (including pea protein) that are superior to this one.

It tasted terrible, so I sent it back to Swansons for a refund.

Worst Protein Ever
Is not soluble. Most of it ends up unmixed in the bottom of your shaker. What does mix is gritty.

I have used pea protein for 3 years now and Swanson's brand has a milder taste and mixes easier with almond milk than the other brand I use.
At the current discounted price you cannot beat the value!
True,there are better tasting plant based proteins out there but they can be 2 to 3 times the price. I am more than willing to mix a little cinnamon and sweetener in my protein drink to make up for the taste and texture. If you must have a perfectly smooth drink then use a blender.
I have also mixed this product in soups with good results.
I definitely recommend this product!

This IS the only product I have purchased from Swanson's which is truly terrible! very disappointed!
No wonder it is now being sold at an amazing discount.

Great product but...
I love this product but I noticed that sometimes the color is off, from tub to tub. I also noticed that the taste is different. and does change the flavor of the many different smoothies I make.

Good product and great price
I had been consuming another pea protein powder and decided to try Swanson's. Overall, I am quite satisfied with the powder and recommend it. Each serving requires the same amount of powder as the others, has virtually the same nutritional value as the others, and mixes easier than the others (I mix with almond milk). It is a bit 'gritty, but maybe would be not so if allowed to sit a few minutes. It also has a bit of a bitter aftertaste, but a bit of honey or other flavor easily masks it.

Worst I have ever tasted
My husband and I tried this protein in smoothies with different fruits, strawberries, blue berries, pineapple, apples, raspberries, and a combination of the fruits that we have tried before and loved. This pea protein overpowered the flavor of all fruit to the point that you could not taste any fruit in it. I finally threw the protein away tonight and recycled the container. The container was the only value in the product!!

ROTTEN Taste, CHALKY
Has a ROTTEN Taste to it like it's been stuck in a Hot Garage since 1924. Tried to mix it in water, yet it stayed super chalky and when I took a sip, I almost gagged. CHEAP and BAD Quality Product!

I have made the change from whey to pew protein becuase of it's versatility. The only drawback is pea protein does not dissolve entirely so if you are making a drink it will have a slight gritty feel, but in a smoothie it is not too noticeable. But it can be added to hummus, yogurt, peanut butter and it makes for a very thick smoothie.

I just finished my tub of this protein and have to say I do like the results.The taste Isnt that good or bad but If youre looking for perfect taste than try those over priced and over advertised proteins.Its cost efficent,alot of servings for the price and Its non GMO which Is always a plus.This protein may just be my main protein from now on.Thanks Swanson!

Good Protein Source Plus....
After trying probably all of the protein powders that exist, I have finally found this one. I really like it because: No sugar, flavorings or other additives, no unpleasant taste, no grittiness and, it totally disappears in my smoothie and best of all, for me, it is very digestible. And also contains a good amount of protein.

Great product at a fantastic price! Can't go wrong with this protein powder.

This is nasty! Bad taste and gritty.

Vegetarian needing protein...
Have incorporated some of this in baked goods but it imparts an odd smell. Prefer it just mixed in water where it has a very bland, smooth taste and texture. I've also used whey protein. With both products, uncertain if body is utilizing the protein properly as they leave me feeling hungry.

Love my pea protein!
Excellent Pea protein! I mix it with almond milk, blueberries and a banana..... Soooo good!
Wish it came in a bigger size!

Been using this product for over 1 year. Tried other
protein prod. for 2 previous years. Digestive issues w/ others. Am very satisfied. Appreciate that it only has pea protein w/o any added stuff ie: sweeteners, vanilla or choc. Make it w/ triple berry 1/4 c., lemon juice, kale or spinach & h2o in magic bullet. Sometimes add flax seed or coconut oil. Helps to keep me full longer. Thank you Swansons

This product is very healthy and mixed with a fruit is very tasty.

I have multiple allergies and this product is great. A quick, great source of protein.

This is my opinion and I know it may differ from others because I've heard people say they really like this. I know Pea Protein is good for us but it doesn't really taste very good. I'm looking for a creamy, milk substitute since I'm allergic to milk, but this isn't it. I'll use up the rest of the container but probably with chocolate to cover up the taste.

This is a great protein intake for muscle building strength. I put it in my chocolate (cacoa) smoothies.

This is a good product and I love the Swanson products. When is French vanilla or just vanilla going to be added to this product. My son is always on the go, and would drink it if it had the vanilla flavor. Thanks. :0)

Good versatile protein product
This pea protein is higher in protein levels than some other powders, and tastes great, with a subtle pea flavor. I mix it with fruit juice, and mixes well in a blender.

Good protein powder for smoothies
This protein powder is good for making smoothies, though I admit really the only smoothie I make with it is: almond milk, avocado, this protein powder, and cocoa. I make it in my Magic Bullet, it blends just fine, and with the other ingredients I don't taste anything adverse. I have not done much else with it, so can't vouch for it in other applications, but I think it's an excellent value for what it is! I have a really sensitive stomach and I haven't had any problems with adverse reactions, so it definitely gets a thumbs up from me!

will buy it again
I feel the absorbtion after a strong workout when I take about a scoop and a half to 2 scoop, I take it with half a banana.
