(03/01/14): This stuff only has one ingredient which is perfect. :D Just be aware that it has 3x the usual amount of sodium than some whey protein powders. :P The taste is decent....not advised to "just add water" if you are picky with taste. :l The texture even after shaking can feel like you are still inhaling dust.....but it shouldn't make you gag. The stuff is really cheaply priced for a considered "healthy" supplelement when compared to others with minimal amount of additives. About to finish my 1st tub and have 2 more tubs on hand. :) Decent stuff.

NOW Pea Protein ReviewHi MFP land. Ive had a few people ask me about the Pea protein I am currently using so I thought Id write up a quick review for anyone interested. First let me say I usually use Whey as my primary protein supplementation choice. However, I like to switch things up from time to time. I also like to try new things and had heard good reviews on this product. Okay on to the particulars:Taste:So the first time I drank this I pretty much almost threw it up all over the kitchen. Im not going to sugar coat it&it was not pleasant. I ended up guzzling it down just cause I am not one to waste things but I thought to myself oh crap, I have like 30 servings of this stuff left!. However, I quickly become accustomed to the taste

This tastes like garbage and I'll probably dump it out. I'd go with hemp protein.

...Okay, established it tastes like dried vomit. Still a great product however, and if you are trying to do without harmful sweeteners and sugar I s****est mixing it with: almond milk 1 banana cacao powder or cocoa almond butter or peanut butter your sweetener of choice OR frozen blueberries almond milk almond or peanut butter your sweetener of choice So tasty....good as a breakfast shake or post workout if you work out or can make it home from the gym in time. Recommend!

This tastes delicious in homemade soups. I put a scoop in my veggie soup and it makes it creamy and adds a good flavor

I have made the leap from whey protein to hemp protein and now pea protein. You can't beat the price, the amount of grams of protein per serving and the amino acid profile. It mixes well with just about anything in a blender. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a whey protein alternative.

I like the fact that it's clean and organic protein. The flavor is not good and it's too thick when you mix it with any liquid. I make fruit & vegetable smoothies, so the flavor is not way too strong. I'll continue to but it just because I'm into organic foods.

I cut out whey and dairy over a year ago, no do I take soy protein. This is a great alternative with 25g per serving, and the most bang for your dollar! The flavor is horrible. I never complain about food, but this is that bad. Small drawback to a great source of alternative protein. My solution to this was blending it with a teaspoon of cinnamon, banana, almond milk, and ice making the perfect smoothie. I will continue to buy this product because I believe in it.

not a bad product, I don't like it as much as the other milk based proteins I use but it works good in vegetable and fruit juice. I also like having a varied diet which is why I got it. great price too. about half of what I pay for other protiens.

It is a challenge to find quality vegan, organic, non gmo protein supplements and NOW Pea Protein was fantastic. It was easily digestible, fast acting, and promoted super lean gains. It is a shame that BB.com has stopped carrying it, I will now have to go elsewhere on the internet for it.

This is a really great product that I've been using for the past year and a half with great success. I see that BB.com has now discontinued this and this is alarming as it has become one of the staples in my diet. I tried ordering from another company but the consistency was not the same even tho it was the same product. It smelled different and the difference in taste was substantial. I hope bb.com will carry this again someday.

I was really excited to finally try this. I have no issues with whey protein, but sometimes I think it would make me a little bloated and gassy. I also Juice a lot, so I just mix in the pea protein into my JUICE blend. I love it, texture is fine and it is unflavored so great to mix in. I will also be making some muffins with this. I am Paleo as well for the most part. So its great to get an on the go protein source. I recommend everyone to try this Live out side the box. Pea Protein sounds scary but dont knock it until you've tried it. Ashley Horner.

This protein is great except for the taste! Since I am allergic to whey based protein this is a great substitute for me. I have been taking it for two months months (I didn't take any protein before) and I have seen significant gains in my strength and size. I recommend this to anyone one who is either lactose-intolerant or vegan who is looking for a good protein source to supplement into their diet. Let me say again, this is not a protein powder for someone who is very picky on taste.

Others have complained about the taste (like "disgusting). Guess what? It tastes like.....not chicken, but, of all things, PEAS! Not objectionable at all, if you're prepared for that fact beforehand. I'm a vegan, so I take a scoop and a half for insurance. That amount is difficult to get to completely suspend in a coffee mug. No problem though, I just take 3/4 scoop twice a day.

Doesn't mix well and tastes awful. If you're in the market for vegetarian protein, avoid.

Being Vegan, i had to give up any Whey's that i was used to buying. However, most of the Vegan products on the market are very pricing, because they are Vegan. However, NOW's products have always been a bit cheaper then their competition, and frankly, just as good if not better. This Pea Protein, is very high In Complete Aminos, and because of this i think it's amazing for it's price. Have you been scared off because of the bad Taste Reviews? Listen, it doesn't taste good, rather, if you take a scoop and put it in a shaker with just water, you are going to have a bad time. But, having tasted some AWFUL gainers in my past, i tell you that this is a bar above them. Add some Peanut Butter, a Banana, and you'll be happy.
