I've been using this protein for a while and find it the nicest tasting of the non-dairy proteins. Mixed with a bit of almond milk its a great tasting milkshake.
Looks gross, tastes gross. But it works. I mix with MyProtein pea protein powder in my breakfast smoothie, and can just about cope. Going to take a long time to get through my supersize bag! Having it for breakfast keeps me full up to beyond lunch, something soya protein didn't do so well. I don't regret my purchase, but won't be rushing out to buy again.
It is so good tasting that it saves me a lot of time to just put 2 spoonfuls of it in my mouth with sips of water and chew it. It actually make me to look forward to the moment that I eat it daily, which has never happened with any of the brown rice and pea protein powder that I have tried. It certaintly works for feeling more energized! It can be used in recipes too.I used it with buckwheat flour(2:1 proportion of hemp protein being the less) and organic raisins to make crackers.
I use this as a meal replacement. I mix it into natural yoghurt with some stevia and a good few deops of vanilla extract. Yum. To me it tastes like ice cream with a slightly nutty flavour and does me more good on account of the vitamins it contains.
I bought it because your milk based products irritated my bowels and gave me the runs. Plus I am aware of the useful and naturally available benefits of the hemp plant for the human body. This stuff tastes like hemp and it doesn't really dissolve into the liquid. Its a bit like making a tea using leaves. They get wet and mix into the water, but they remain bits of tea. So this powder remains powder in the mixer and turns the water cloudy green and some settles at the bottom of the container. Its a unique and interesting, not unpleasant taste, of hemp(!) which is a grassy, not sweet, not bitter, vegetable taste. THe effect on the guts is completely benign, and yields a satisfying energy supply. One star off because it doesn't get you stoned. Gutted. Plus its a bit on the pricey side. I may try Pea Protein as an alternative.Goes Well With:Before an apple.
I like that this product is made from hemp. Great for people with lactose intollerence. I like the high vitamin profile. The only issue is the mixability and taste. It tastes like I scooped up muddy water from the ground and it does not mix well at all. I do however think it doesn't taste to bad if mixed with orange juice, so try it with that and get even more vitamins :)Goes Well With:Orange juice
Great product ... mix it with some impact whey isolate and instant oats , cocoa powder , coconut water , honey and kefir . tastes good . Tje kefir is hugely pro biotic and a complete protein source also .
The first week using this protein can be a bit of a challenge in terms of texture, but after that, it's fine. I was looking for a natural, plant based, pesticide/chemical free alternative to Whey, and I'm really happy with the change. The added benefit of Hemp's vitamin/mineral profile, high fibre, and Omega 3 & 6 profile make this a killer addition to my diet. Goes Well With:Patience, Water (lots)
Taste awfull as expected. But I think it is a good product. Need to take for a few more weeks to see if there are any benefits. Recomend you only take half a measure at a time. You need to be pretty hardcore to down this stuff. Great alternative to dairy and soya based protien.Goes Well With:Apple juice
As far as proteins go, this seems to be a little easier to tolerate if you don't like the sickly sweet, all in one, whey based mixes like XS or Extreme. I thought I'd give it a try as I looking for something which lent itself more to a paleo option. TBH, I actually prefer this to the other stuff I was taking (XS & Extreme). They were very sweet and had to tone them down with a spoon of powdered coffee to stomach them. Ok, so it may be a tad lighter on the protein content so take three shakes a day to make up for it. Where the XS and Extreme would play havoc with my insides this is noticeably easier. I still get a bit of gas but that's more likely from the milk I mix it with than from the product. I prefer to use milk as it makes it taste like cold pea soup. To be honest I like the taste this way and I take 3 heaped scoops a day and mix each one with about 2/3 of a pint of milk. It goes down well. Water makes it too watery and as for fruit juice, that would be just plain wrong. Think savoury and you'll be ok. Mixibility is pretty good. A tad grainy but nothing more than usual. I get the odd clump of powder stuck to the inside of my shaker lid afterwards but I shake that off with a bit of water and down it too. Results - too soon to say as it's only been a month. Goes Well With:Milk
Limited to protein shakes I can use due to intolerances. I found this one grand. The taste wasn't great but it was definitely drinkable. Better than I was expecting, I found it tasted earthy or nutty. I haven't tried mixing it with anything other than water so may find something to help it.
When I had my first shake I was doughtfull, it didn't taste great but it wasn't bad. But after a 1kg pack the taste has grown on me and I quite like it. To my suprise it's great with milk, I mix it with a bit of dextrose for post work-outs and that tastes great to. I still haven't tried it with juice yet. I just brought the vegan belnd which I will never do again, this product it far superea in taste and mixability. I havn't been working out long enough to know how it effects performence and growth. It mixes well and doesn't effect my stomach in any bad way, neither does it make me fart while squating. Can't wait to finish my vegan blend so I can get back onto this,
Being lactose intolent and vegaterian I've been a bit limited in my choices. I've tried brown rice protein (it's grainy and doesn't agree with me), I've tried pea protein (which is ok) and even mixed the two (it's supposed to give a better amino acid balance) but this was the only protein I've tried which is easily digested and has noticable results. Yes, as others have said, it has a strong nutty / earthy flavour but once you get over the unusual flavour it's the best out there for vegans.Goes Well With:I stick with water!
Nice natural product!
As i like to have diversity in my protein intake i discovered that this kind of raw proteins are a great way to do that by mixing them in half parts with other flavored proteins. I like to try things that aren't usual, i was sceptical with mixing it with whey but after i tasted it, this became my favorite blend, the shake gets lighter, and i find it to be more easily digested. In raw, this tastes like what it is but i find it to blend very well with any other flavour, so the taste shouldn't be a issue.Goes Well With:Other flavoured protein blends.
I call this product excellent -despite its downfall in mixability- because of its purity and rawness as a food. Having used whey protein for a couple of years when I was in my late teens I almost always found problems with it, whether from it being difficult to digest or the bloating that many people complain of. I could 'feel' that I'd had it, and that my stomach didn't like it, for pretty much the rest of the day. Having done a bit of reading it seems that the methods of extraction, the agents that it comes powdered with, and the nature of the protein as animal (and hence not optimised for human stomachs) all contribute to these complaints about whey. I have to commend myprotein on their range of plant-based products as well as the quality and affordability of this one in particular. As other reviewers say, this is raw hemp protein which means it will digest in your stomach just as though you had eaten the seeds. I've found the shakes so digestible that I can have them before/after meals and not feel bloated or over-full, nor does it feel heavy in the stomach during exercise. The product doesn't mix particularly well, but you can't expect much else since it's 100% hemp. Hemp doesn't naturally mix into a solution and it is heavier than milk and water so it tends to sink to the bottom of the shake. You can also feel the powder in your mouth as you drink it, but that isn't unusual with shakes in my experience. It isn't an offensive taste, but the shake benefits from adding your own flavouring. Goes Well With:1/3 water, 2/3 milk, chocolate milkshake powder.
I'm pretty new to the whole protein supplements thing, but as a vegetarian I decided to try this as it was recommended by a friend. First few goes I mixed it with just water and found it a bit, well, odd - kind of like drinking cold, thin pea soup! But mixed with skimmed milk it's much better - actually quite smooth and really quite tasty. And I have to say that it does seem to help refuelling after a session at the gym. I'm certainly coming back for more!Goes Well With:Milk!
Very good choice, it's vegan and healthy protein! Mixing it with water is okay but it tastes much better mixed with fruit juice. I'll definitively buy it again! Goes Well With:water, fruit juice
This one is the only protein that is not UHT treated - which means it retains most of its minerals/vitamins and is fully assimilable. It is also cold processed (obtained by physical means) and without a use of solvents and therefore does not get your bowels bloated. The only thing is the taste but it could bypassed by mixing with 100% chocolate. You could mix it with banana as well but do not forget to add a spoonful or two of flax oil to slow down the carbs intake (high index). Goes Well With:100% chocolate
Researching nutrition, I have come to learn that this source of protein is the most natural and purest protein out there. Before, I think it was raw eggs, but those days are long gone. Thank goodness, this protein tastes like plants, and takes some getting used to. It can be mixed etc but the taste is quite strong and overpowering. I won't lie about that. However, you can get used to it, and it is fantastic for recovery! A few shakes of this a day, will soon become habit and really does speed up recovery after a workout, also I have noticed an increase in muscle gain compared to other protein powders. The main selling point for me was the purity of the Hemp, nothing is added, or taken away.Goes Well With:I mix it with milk or water, ideally with the Myprotein Shaker.
No stomach upset at all even if taking few servings per day. For all the fusspots out there, its on par with pea protein taste wise (not great) but in blender with berries and orange juice it is fine, actually adds a nice thick texture. Cant complain on this stuff, taste is irrelevant really unless you are a fusspot and more worried on taste than quality. Sticking to this gear from now on.Goes Well With:frozen berries and juice
I recently started running/jogging with a group of other middle aged women. The reasons for this is first to get fit and hopefully lose a little weight. I have been trying to improve the muscles in my body and this protein was recommended to me. I have only just started using this product along with making other changes to my diet and running/jogging three times a week. Up to now I have no complaints and I am happy with what I received. My fitness has improved and I am slowly losing weight as well as toning my whole body. Give it ago and find out for yourselves. It's never to late.Goes Well With:Shakes and soups
At first, I didn't like the taste of it, finding it too overwhelming! But then I used 400ml of oat milk, a banana and a half scoop of this protein and it tastes delicious.Goes Well With:Oat milk and a banana.
I have an intolerance to whey to found hemp protein a good replacement, this protein tastes they best of any I've ever had. It mixes as well as hemp protein can just I make it as required or if taking it to training I just give it a good shake before I drink it. Value for money and quality myprotein is the best there is highly recommend it.
The taste of this protein is great, it's kind of nutty, like a mild peanut butter. Better than Whey in my opinion.Goes Well With:Me
It taste better than it looksGoes Well With:Meal replacement shakes
Not a good taste by itself but it is really effective with recovery!Goes Well With:Tomato juice and tabasco sauce
This protein works for me as I alternate between pea and hemp proteins and they go well with my paleo (dairy and gluten free) diet, but the taste is not too good.
Lovely to drink as a smoothy, with a nice taste. It gives good results and is a very good vegetarian source.
Excellent product that's a much smoother and finer mixture than those available on the high street. Taste is an acquired one, although mixed 50/50 with impact whey protein and berries, this makes it much more palatable. It mixes easily and smoothly.Goes Well With:CLA
I love it. As well as being a brilliant raw food (which combines beautifully with banana and cacao!), I love baking with it. I don't eat any grain and only have monosaccharides and find the natural albumin content of this means it makes wonderful breads and cakes without the need for loads of eggs.Goes Well With:everything!
I'm a big fan of this protein source, for me it releases slower than whey protein and so that makes it a useful ingredient in my breakfast shake. Unlike with whey, I stay full for longer when I use this one (without feeling bloated). The colour can be a bit strange, as anything you mix it with will result in a green slime. However, I find the taste to be pleasant, and it mixes quite well (with flax) - better than whey protein. Goes Well With:Fruit juice, ground flax.
I am not one to complain about taste in general, but I found this Protein to be pretty hard to swallow. It has a horrid flavour and texture. It tastes better with almond, hazelnut or rice milk than water. It needs something to sweeten it, and use water to water it down. I will continue to use it as an effective alternative to whey.
Very good, natural, plant-based protein powder. I've used it for some time now, sometimes on its own, but I also mix it with pea and brown rice protein. It has much more than just protein, as it's packed with a lot of good stuff. It's highly recommended.
What can I say, this protein is a great product and tastes fine to me when just mixed with water, but make sure you use a bit more water about 300ml per scoop. I'm enjoying mixing it up and not just having whey all the time. The price does seem a bit high, but it's definitely worth trying out!
Probably the most nutritional protein one can consume. The taste may not be as 'good' as some other proteins, but once you get used to it, it's perfectly palatable.
I've used it on and off but I am using it now all the time I got back into training. I have one after I've finished a workout. I mix mine with water plus add spirulina, barley grass, chlorella, plus other powders and drink it. Yes, the taste is different. I know from what I've read on different sites the benefits of taking this stuff is amazing, and it doesn't bloat like whey. I find whey to sweet, this is why I enjoy hemp, which is a bland non-sweet product.
it tastes very good mixed with water + tbsp of raw cacao powder and tsp of raw agave nectar.
"Wow, I'm surprised at how many reviews are giving this five stars. I haven't tried it for very long so I can't yet vouch for it's effectiveness just yet (am trying to find a protein shake without lactose), but I can say it's not easy to drink. It's a bit like trying to swallow a bag of crushed brazil nuts - hard going. Mixing only with water is just not good - it's more than a nutty taste, it's really bitter and strong and I defy anyone to have more than one scoopful per shake without gagging. However, I've found the most palatable way to drink it is to mix with Hazelnut milk and a banana (almond milk doesn't quite mask the taste enough for my liking), and would like to know if there are any better options. An acquired taste indeed, and one I've yet to acquire."
"well I was surprised with this protein, mixed with almond milk its not bad tasting, the average person will probably think its a rank taste, but out of all of the proteins this is now my choice, it has so many health benefits out of all the vegan proteins. throw in some banana oats and you have a delicious healthy post workout shake "
"I stopped buying whey protein as it gave me chronic insomnia, no matter what time of the day i took it. My girlfirend, who is vegan, put me onto this stuff. I was worried at first is wouldnt be as effective as whey but i have actually seen better results in the gym, which i put down to the good nights sleep i am now getting! Certainly as a protein source it is a good as whey, and MUCH better for you. I feel so much better having switched from whey to hemp, especially my insides! I can also take a massive scoop before bedtime and sleep like a baby. As far as the taste goes its not too bad. It mixes much better with water than whey and i guzzle down 3-4 glasses (1 scoop) a day no problem. My GF doesnt like the texture so she puts it in a yoghurt and loves the taste. I HIGHLY recommend this product. PS. PLEASE BRING DOWN THE PRICE!"
"My first review ,i received my parcel today . even tough i read and researched about the advantage of this protein source i wasn't looking forward to the taste. But to my surprise it taste nice i made a smoothie it had tropicana orange juice 150ml,1 banana,3 strawberries .i used to take Promax extreme and will be honest didn't see any change used to take it after and before training and it was vanilla flavour which didn't taste nice . the only thing missing here measuring spoon in the bag which would help to get the right quantity ."
"mixes ok, tastes exactly like i expected (hemp seeds) no problem for me to mix with water,i quite enjoy it.previously used pea protein for lactose,gluten free protein which is great but thought i,d try something which brings a bit more to the party ie enzymes,better amino +fatty acids profile,vitimins and nutrients.havent used it long enough to review results but im sure it gives me a better pump on drinking one b4 gym."
"ok this is my first review on this site, ive had many of the products, Hemp protein as you know has many benefits compared to whey. i bought a bag and tried it out. the taste was a slight shock to the system so dont buy a big bag first, but mixed with GUAVA JUICE OMG IT TASTE AMAZINNNNGGGGG! I WILL NOW BE ONLY USING THIS PROTEIN. ITS A WHOLEFOOD ! Ive seen gains that seem to be stable and dont reduce in size like when you stop using other proteins. So Buy it and find a suitable juice to mix it with and you'll be fine. i even put a scoop of the powder in my sweet potato mash for lunch. :)"
Very expensive for hemp as you can get it very cheap from other places but I bought with a few friends in bulk this stuff and it really works and it is a healthy alternative to whey and has a more nutritional complex whereas whey just tends to provide protein and very little else nutrition wise.
"I enjoy this hemp organic protein powder as it is healthy, organic, very effective too. I eat meat very rarely and non free range eggs in regular protein shakes I find not so friendly to chickens. I went for a vegan protein to use alongside a good whey protein immediately after the gym. I have felt my bodies strengh, endurance and tone improve with my lean mass increase from this product. Thankyou"
"I am allergic to loads of things including dairy, soya and wheat/corn/grains, so was so pleased when my lovely Brother told me about this, though it took me a while to get round to ordering as I read some of the reviews.... and was a bit put off, but I should have just gone with it! It is not nasty in any way at all - it has a slightly nutty flavour (well I as I remember nuts from my childhood anyway - as I'm allergic to them now too!!) I drink wheatgrass and Spirulina too, so the greeness is of no consequence, and it does mix provided you are drinking it straight away, or drinking it from a shaker so you can giive it a quick shake before you swig, as it does settle a bit. I imagine it will adapt well to flavourings, but personally I thought it tasted really nice. Can't comment on it's effectiveness as only just had my first one, but I enjoyed it and will be back for more!"
"This is anecdotal evidence I admit, but I have to say that there's something about this protein powder which works really, really well for me. I don't know what, but I've tried around half of the different types of protein supplement and this one really gives me some kind of boost in the way no other has. I sincerely hope they start offering a bulk discount however as it's very expensive. A recommendation: mix it with Pomegranite juice. It's an acquired taste, but it really grows on you after a couple of days. Although I genuinely think my body just recognizes it as great nutrition and has psychologicallyl made it taste great in response. This is *much* better than any whey protein for me."
"Dont buy this if you want a nice taste when drinking protein. This is natural ground down hemp seeds. The first time i tried it i heaved, honestly i have a high threshold for putting up with revolting tasting drinks as i have taken all sorts of brands of whey for over 5 years. I kept going and found my tolerance level improving and the taste becomes more bland. However the effectivness of the product is unbelievable. I feel better and have put on good clean lean muscle and lost body fat. This stuff really is the real deal, its a whole protein and superfood all in one packed with minerals EFA`s vitamins loads of fibre ( great Stools ) low PH level compared to high acidic whey powder. I have more sustained energy and better skin, I am not tell porkys when i say i chucked a 5kg tub of whey in the bin. Shame that MYPROTEIN dont add a natural flavouring to help take this diamond in the ruff."
"This tastes absolutely fine; quite nutty, which I had no problems with. I wouldn't want to drink it neat with just water, but the first time I used it was in a smoothie and didn't use quite enough liquid so it came out really really thick. The taste was fine and not at all overpowering (unless you're taking it neat I guess), it just adds a slightly grainy texture to whatever you're drinking and a very slight undertone of hazelnuts. Only thing it needs is a bulk discount!"
