We have been using the old formula for over a year, practically every morning in smoothies. Purchased this new formula and tried it once. Using the same amount we always had produced an extremely thick and gritty goo that was unpalatable. This new formula has cut out the hemp powder and the sodium has gone way up. We returned it immediately and went to our local Natural Grocer to find a replacement. Ended up trying Garden Of Life RAW Protein and Greens; It is a much better substitute than this New formula.
Sorry to hear you're not a fan of taste and texture. We removed the hemp protein because it opens up opportunities for certification in the future, as well as sharing our products in other markets. Please note that most of the sodium found in this product is inherent in plant-based ingredients in our blend - especially pea protein which is a part of our premium plant-based protein blend.
Thanks again for sharing your feedback with us, I'll make sure to pass it along to our team.
