For the first month or so I could definitely sense the pea flavor of it, but I personally liked it and it is quite neutral. A month or so later I discovered how to make protein-shakes(something you simply MUST try, it's a totally different game that way), I realized how perfect this mix is. It's basically a clean slate that is PACKED with protein and no artificial flavoring, which allows you to add anything you want to it and make your own creation. It's the vodka of protein shakes. I personally loved the thicker, chalkier texture of this stuff as well, though my tastes are admittedly out of the ordinary.
The 28g of protein is fabulous, making the mix extremely cost efficient, especially considering you could honestly use a smaller scoop-load and still get a good amount of protein in. The amino acid counts are great and the lack of carbs is very good.
If you're in the market for a cleaner source of protein and are allergen prone, NOW protein powder comes highly recommended.
P.S. I always buy 2 containers at a time, usually running me around $38-40$, which is a great value in my opinion.
***UPDATE***I have been drinking a scoop diluted in about 16 ounces of water, half before and half after working out in the morning. I am now completely used to the pea protein taste when it is watered down. I have also started sprinkling small amounts on vegetable stews at dinner time and taste blends easily. Taking the time to get used to it was worth it.
Where it lost a star for me is the texture. Yes, others have also mentioned this, and they're right. It's a bit gritty, almost like fine sand. You can let it soak in water for a half hour, and it's not going to change that fact, unfortunately.
Now, the way I've been taking this is with some unsweetened kool-aid and Stevia sweetener. It tastes pretty good that way, but the grittiness is there. One way to avoid it is to dilute it with more water. I'm talking about 30-40 grams of powder per liter of water. Then you don't notice the grittiness very much.
Alternatively, you can blend it with one banana, one cup of soy milk, and 1 cup of some berries. Or use whatever type of milk you want. If you use those amounts, you'll end up with a pretty thick smoothie. It will go down a lot better than having a watery liquid will. And you can increase the concentration of the protein that way. But yes, you will get extra calories. They're "good" calories since they come from good things, but they're still extra calories that you might be able to do without.
Personally, the grittiness is not a big issue for me, even with the kool-aid method I mentioned above. I don't find myself gagging on it.Read more ›
