If you're after non a non dairy protein source then this is it, mixes well and with around 24g protein with each 30g scoop you can't go to wrong. The taste however is something else, some people comparing it to cardboard are not far off, but it has to be one of the most disgusting tastes ever. It's taste is so over powering, I've tried to make protein pancakes, protein flapjacks etc. using this protein as opposed to whey but you can't escape the gritty nature and vile taste. When it comes to shakes I've tried to mix it with cinnamon, cocoa powder, honey, chia seeds and a range of others just to try and partly remove the taste but I simply cannot. I've literally just purchased a smoothie maker, so will try and mix fruits etc. with the protein to see if I can get away from the horrible taste. I'm not actually lactose intolerant like some people are, I choose not to take whey protein as I'm a sufferer of acne, and if any of you do any research with regards to whey protein and acne, then you will understand the situation I'm in. I stopped taking whey about 2/3 months back, but it's so hard to get the right amount of proteins in my diet to hit my macros without the odd shake or two during the day, hence why I searched for non-dairy protein shake source. If anyone is looking to take this as a whey alternative due to acne like myself, so far I can tell you I've had no adverse effects so far, just the taste makes it so hard to bare. All I can say is grit your teeth and drink this as fast as you can, have water next to use each time as after every mouthful your mouth becomes dry as if you've just swallowed some chalk. I've given this 4 stars purely based on the reason why we take this - to add protein to our diets to compliment our training and it does that. Good luck!Goes Well With:Nothing to my knowledge so far...
I do not usually post reviews but feel so strongly about the awful taste of Brown Rice Protein I thought I must. When I read the other reviews stating it tasted bad I thought I would be able to mix it with enough fruit and sweet things that it would wipe out the bad taste. I too have found this impossible to do. Anything I mix it with is obliterated by what can only be described as the taste of wet carboard soaked in mud. When mixed, a layer of powder is always left in the foam which then coats your teeth / sticks to the back of your throat, which further adds to the gagging when consuming this drink. I've got to a stage where I can throw it down my neck but it has taken far more effort and mind power than should be needed. I imagine I have developed the sort of mind control that Shaolin monks have. I've got 2.5kgs to get through anyway, I'm shuddering at the thought. Will try pea protein next time.Goes Well With:Absolutely nothing found on Earth, or in the known Universe (maybe)
My nutricianist recommended this for me, as I couldn't tolerate whey protein and he said that this is just what I need at the moment. It tastes fine and does what it's supposed to...fills me up and strengthens me. Also, for those of you who do weights, exercise etc and need extra protein, this is one of the few that doesn't contain all the nasty chemicals and sugar. What's the point of exercise if you don't watch what you're putting into your body?? It's a little grainy but how long does it take to knock back a drink? If you want what's best for you, try it. What have you got to lose?Goes Well With:Purified water
After reading the reviews I was a bit confused but decided to give it a go as I was annoyed how whey protein made me feel. Being bloated is not fun and looking 4 months pregnant is not so enjoyable either. All the negativity was directed mostly towards the taste. Not exactly sure how brown rice protein tastes on it's own because I took advice from a friend and I mixed the brown rice protein with pea protein and mix it just with water without adding flavourings and I must be weird because I totally don't mind the taste. You definitely wont go "mmm that's soo good" but it's not the worst tasting thing that I've drank or eaten for sure. For those really fussy ones if you mix it with juice you wont be able to taste it (tried that with first shake to be on the safe side) I cannot really comment on effectiveness just yet but I can say that it doesn't make me bloated and uncomfortably full after drinking it so therefore I love it.Goes Well With:Tropicana mango and orange juice but I just mix it with water (and with pea protein)
If you want to throw up, buy this product. I bravely bought 2 bags of 2.5kg as it was on offer. I am a quarter of the way through the first bag in a good few months. I literally think I am going to have to throw it out. I dilute it as much as possible and can't handle more than one scoop in my shaker. If I could swap these 2 bags for vegan blend, I would in a heartbeat. Can people actually drink this stuff? It is so revolting. I have to psych myself up for this more than my workouts....Goes Well With:Nothing
My nutricianist first recommended this for me (please see my review from January 2015). I've been using it for just over 3 months and can report that I now actually enjoy taking it. What works for me is about 250ml of water, 30g scoop of rice protein, a liberal shake of cinnamon and some flax seeds (linseed). I don't have a shaker, so just weigh the dry ingredients into a plastic beaker, add water, and mix with a small metal whisk. Then I add 1 tablespoon of milled flax seeds and whisk them in. The seeds make it a better consistency to drink, as it's thicker, and also gives it a slightly nutty flavour. Result: I can now drink this straight down without stopping and without the back of my throat getting dry. The other benefits are as stated: I'm stronger and feel fitter, there's no lactose and no other nasties or sugars. For a good source of protein without unnecessary additives, I can only recommend that you try this, as it certainly works well for me.Goes Well With:Cinnamon and milled flax seeds (linseed).
This is the best alternative to whey from what I've read, although it's been a bit of a shock to the taste buds. I recommend it purely for its benefits, and reasonably high protein content, but if you struggle drinking vile tastes this isn't for you. I've tried mixing with banana, yoghurt, honey, almond milk and berries in a smoothie, but all I've ended up with is a disgusting grey/green gloop. You can try mixing with more honey, sugar, ice cream, chocolate powder or whatever, it might then be drinkable, but that would defeat the object of being healthy, which is why I got this protein in the first place. If MyProtein could create a drinkable, tasty rice protein I would definitely buy again, but at this stage I can't see myself doing so.Goes Well With:A hardy set of taste buds, and a manly attitude.
Good source of non-dairy protein and mixes great. Taste is not the best but would not call it bad. Definitely will order it again in the future.Goes Well With:Egg white powder
Been using the pea protein for a while with good results, so decided to try the brown rice protein as it's amino acid profile complements the profile of pea protein. I've been using half a scoop of each powder and whacked it down in a shaker with a good amount of water...the less water in the shaker the harder it is to mix I found. Taste wise it's a bit weird, not particularly nice but mixed with the pea protein it's a lot better. I can definitely identify with the gritty texture it leaves on your teeth afterwards which isn't pleasant, but it's good protein when all said and done and it definitely helps feed my muscles with good stuff to help repair and recover. My advice is man up, and get it down, for a non dairy protein coupled with pea protein you can't go far wrong with this product.Goes Well With:Pea protein isolate and water and the ability to ignore your taste buds!
I use Brown Rice Protein as a filler in homemade low carb bread, it's easy to mix with other dry materials.
First of all this tastes foul. It isn't helped by the fact that it comes unflavoured (MyProtein please introduce flavours!!!!) and it isn't the best to mix. Having said that, the reason we have 'vegan' protein is because we are intolerant to whey (like me) or vegan and also, the main reason, to aid in the building of muscle. So the fact that it has 24g of protein and virtually no fat or carbs is great. It's also fairly cheap. So either close your eyes and chug it back or mix it with other stuff. I put oats and peanut butter in my morning and night shake and it tastes a whole lot better. To sum up: if I could have chocolate cream or banana or cookie whey protein I would, but I'm gonna have to make do with this for the health benefits and the impressive protein content per scoop. Goes Well With:Anything. Put anything and everything in.
So, all things considered if you're vegan or can't have dairy and gluten then this is an alternative, and at 24g of protein per 30g serving it's pretty decent. However, this stuff is revolting!!! It does not mix well in smoothies (I put fruit, yoghurt, milk and juice in with it and it still didn't blend), and it also doesn't mix with water, milk or anything else for that matter! It's constantly grainy and powdery. I personally cannot stand the smell or the taste, so it was a bit of a waste of money for me! I would recommend other protein products if you can take them as this is just unbearable.Goes Well With:Literally nothing
I had such high hopes for this protein! I love the Soy Protein Isolate but worried about the potential health impact of too much soy in the diet (breast cancer?) so wanted another vegetarian dairy free alternative. I read the previous reviews warning of flavour and texture but i felt they were generally positive and i'm used to unflavoured protein and don't mind texture. Well I was wrong and this beat me! The texture is very weird, gritty but also somehow chalky. The flavour is not pleasant. I mix with Almond milk, oats and banana and i couldn't even get half way through it. Flav drops didn't help either unfortunetly. I think if it was either texture or taste i could get on with it, but both together it's not possible. I don't think i'd even want to make protein bars with it. Big fail on this one for me i'm afraid, but i'm grateful for the chance to try alternatives. Goes Well With:Nowt
Tastes very neutral, it mixes without lumps, but it keeps having a gritty texture. It's like it doens't get rid of this texture even after 5 minutes of mixing with a high end blender! The Vegan Blend, to my surprise, is a lot better in this regard. Would recommend it, it's still a good product. Goes Well With:Anything! Water Plant-based milks Smoothie
I bought this product because I wanted a protein shake that wasn't full of sodium or sweetener or other additives, this is the most natural I have found so far. It mixes well, but it does taste awful, I have to stand at the sink and drink it quick...but then that's only takes a few mins and I would prefer that to added flavours etc. I can't tolerate the whey etc shakes so this works for me and its good value. Give it a go, just be prepared for the taste.
After finding out im allergic to whey protein i opted to try this. I think i would rather suffer the crippling stomach cramps than consume anymore of this product. By far the worst tasting thing that i hhave ever had plus it leaves your mouth coated in a fine powder. Not impressed at all.
Discussing the taste is ridiculous as it's 'all a matter of tast'. Some will like it and some won't. I like the taste, it's quite a nutty flavour. I mix it, using a fork, in a glass with HMB and water. The only thing about it is, it's a bit gritty. Goes Well With:Water
I can't really comment on the taste of the powder alone as I mix it's with a few other ingredients in a blender. Before buying I read a number of reviews that said it was impossible to cover up the taste regardless of what it's mixed with, I haven't found it to be an issue. I will usually blend a scoop with 2 frozen banana, pure fine oats, 2 tspn MP organic cacao powder and some peanut butter if I need extra fat in my macros. Haven't experienced any of the gritty texture that's been mentioned in previous reviews. I would definitely recommend this product instead of other whey powders on the market. It doesn't give that bloating feeling that you can sometimess get. My recovery has been as good as if not better as when I've used other powders in the past. Goes Well With:All of the ingredients mentioned above and cannellini beans in a blender for extra calories
Amazing to add into most smoothies as you can't taste it but as mentioned it can be quite chalky and I've noticed it makes me a bit gassy unless I put it in my high powered blender for about 4 mins to the point where it becomes warm and emulsified. Goes Well With:Any beans as it makes its amino profile complete, blended oats and banana to mask the chalkiness.
Good source of protein BUT it is chalky as expected. tastes good with just coca powder and i will be adding the myprotein instant chocolate oats which will probably be awesome:)Goes Well With:Protein, Instant oats, cocoa powder
