So a lot of people have commented on the unpleasant taste of pea protein, they weren't wrong. It has a strange, savoury flavour and it has a chalky texture which isn't nice. However, another reviewer suggested blending it with a banana and some peanut butter and this actually made it pretty drinkable. Ultimately I've seen good results from it and I've got a far more settled stomach (compared to whey protein). Plus it's a great opportunity to get away from impact whey which is full of sweeteners. Definitely worth a try!
Easier to mix than the vegan mix and seems to be working so far

One of the more effective ones that I've tried! If you're not a fan of the flavour its easy to tame, add pretty much anything. Add juice or get the blender out and experiment!Goes Well With:Green smothie ...water, banana, spinach, watermelon ! Or almond milk/water
Since becoming vegan I turned to this and the Soy Protein and have to say that this is hands down one of the worst things I've ever tasted. It's very chalky, bitter and doesn't mix as well as the Whey powder. I've tried mixing this with fruit, cocoa, agave syrup and coconut milk, to name a few, but this still tastes awful. Mixing with less liquid to get it down quicker is even worse because it's so thick and chalky XoP Bananas seem to work and also mixing into a soup or stew but this isn't always convenient when you're in the gym.

I was a protein powder virgin before trying this, (and not wanting anything animal based with the nasty additives & sweeteners) after much research I decided to give this one a go. Tried with water at first, and on its own it has a very savoury taste exactly lie you would expect if eating powdered dried peas! But second attempt I blended with a banana and water and to my delight the sweetness of the banana balanced the savoury taste of the pea! Now I have it every day with a spoon of peanut butter, organic banana and a spoon of flax seed oil - makes a great tasting thick shake and super healthy too! :-) Am keen to try the hemp powder next and mix in the same way…! Would recommend…! Goes Well With:Water, 1 Banana, Peanut Butter
Overall good product the only thing i deducted star for is on website they say "gluten free" and on Poach there is sticker witch inform you that this produt is manufactured in facillity that handles "gluten".
Great product and great price for such a generous amount of good quality protein. It has a more-ish yet malty taste. I enjoy putting it in my porridge in a morning for breakfast. it's a real kick start to my day!

I like to think I can stomach almost any food but pea protein has proved my nemesis. I tried it with absolutely every combination and gagged on most of them. For a while, I held my nose whilst drinking it with orange juice, but it got to the point where I dreaded my daily dose of protein. Just this week though, I have finally hit on 2 ways of mixing it which really work for me and don't taste in the least bit vile. 1) Mix with vegetable soup: you won't even notice its presence. And 2) Mix it with Nesquik banana milkshake powder in a 1:1 ratio and add water to mix: quite remarkably, this is actually pleasant to drink! My protein doesn't need to get tossed in the bin after all!!Goes Well With:Banana milkshake. Soup.

I have been working out for a few months now and have tried several other Vegan protein powders including the Vegan Blend and Brown Rice Isolate. All I can say about this product is that it is the best protein I have ever tried. With the other products I would have quicker recovery and my muscles would not ache as much, with this one how ever I am like a son of Zeus reborn to bring his justice down upon the earth. After drinking this for merely one day I stormed into the gym and destroyed my workout. With each rep I let out a roar like a lion as the weights flew up and down like the waves of a violent storm. After leaving I had another shake and felt an immediate effect to my ego and power, so I ran out into the woods. Stripping my clothes off one by one I decided it was time to return to nature and live like a real man. I proceeded to hunt deer and other smaller mammals in the woods, feasting on their still warm corpses like a rabid zombie devouring his meal. On the fourth day I attracted the attention of a bear that was originally the top predator in the woods. He stood on his back legs and let out a vicious roar as he prepared to crush my frail, human body. Little did he know I had the Pea Protein Isolate effects surging through my veins and I leaped forward like a panther. My fist connected with a shattering crack and the bear simply imploded from the amount of power focused down my fist. I am now wearing his skin like a cape as I assert my manly dominance over my wooded domain. 11/10 - no other product will ever come close.Goes Well With:Bear hunters Demi Gods People who wanna lift good

Great protein with good mixability, which helped me recover faster and gain lean muscle weight. I've never had an upset stomach with it, unlike some other proteins. Great value for money!Goes Well With:Creatine

As a vegan, to find protein which i can supplement my diet with, leaves me with few options. Pea protein is not good on its own as a shake, however I have found it is a brilliant way to make soup full of protein. I make soup full of vegetables to get all the goodness with them, add one to two scoops of protein and then you have a meal with few carbs, lots of nutrients and high protein, which tastes awesome. The pea protein taste merely complements the flavour of the other vegetables, rather than trying to stomach it on its own. I also have Hemp protein mixed in with my porridge with some cinnamon which tastes neat, and a way to make one of the best complete proteins (hemp) taste good.Goes Well With:Vegetable Soup
You don't take these things for taste. You take them to supplement your diet. This tastes repulsive therefore you learn not to rely only on shakes for your protein intake. It teaches you to sort out your diet. I haven't lost any muscle mass since I started this and I don't/ can't have it more than two or three times a day because of the taste. It is cheap and does the job. If I was bothered about the taste, I'd eat cake!Goes Well With:Milk and juice

Well I must admit that the pure taste is awful BUT there is always a way to make things way more delicious. ? just mix it with approx. 15 toffee flavored drops. I bought some berry flavored drops as well but it is not that good in combination with the PPI. Toffee is excellent. So buy the protein with these toffee drops and you will overcome the bad taste :)

I started taking pea protein (with brown rice protein for better amino acid profile) - and have noticed huge improvement from the start. Obviously i was laking protein for the intensity of my workouts. The taste is very floury, but that has to be expected. Mixed with couple bananas Goes Well With:water, bananas

I have been using the pea protein and soy protein for a number of years now. As a vegan I was finding it difficult to eat enough protein to build muscle without also eating massive amounts of carbs so I started with the pea and soy powders. I blend it with squash and a banana in the morning and shake it up with some squash after a workout - the banana definitely improves it but hey, I'm not drinking it for the taste. I also tried the other vegan proteins, but for me the price and taste/mix-ability of the pea and soy powders make them my favourites. I guess it has been effective as I'm stronger now than I have ever been - which is good.Goes Well With:Orange and mango squash for taste and a banana to give a smooth texture

Works well , don't buy it for the taste because you won't like it .. I blend it with a banana and some cocoa powder for taste . Gentle on your stomach doesn't bloat you . Pretty good all roundGoes Well With:Banana
I bought pea protein as I'm lactose intolerant hoping to use this as my main source of protein other than meals. I have done that but the taste is awful even adding different things in with it can't take away the awful flavor!
It does what it is supposed to do. Mixes well with water, and the taste is as plain as expected which is just right. One dose before workout and one right after does the trick! very good value. Goes Well With:water
Pea protein is the only protein drink that does not leave me feeling bloated like other protein drinks ! Would recommend it !Goes Well With:Vanilla flav drops
1 out of 1 customer found this review helpful
I don't know what all the bad reviews about taste are. I assume all these reviews are from people who like artificial flavours reducing the protein content up to 5%. The taste is completely fine and it mixes like a dream with no chunks of protein in like some Whey alternative proteins do. People just need to get to grips that its a protein drink that takes about 5seconds to drink. I would definitely recommend it though, a great vegetable protein to counter the amount of meat proteins a diet. Cannot comment on effectiveness at the moment, but great value and easily better than some Whey alternatives.Goes Well With:Chocolate Nesquik or by itself!
Cheapest Pea Protein Isolate I have found on the net, although it does smell rather foul compared to other more famous brands. Goes Well With:Banana and flaxseed in a smoothy
I am happy with this product for its ease of blending and for the fact that it is easy on the stomach, not full of artificial sweetners and most importantly Vegan. I have seen great improvements in my definition having substituted some of my daily calories for pea protein shakes. I take it with enough water to make in thin consistency and your choice of squash or a dissolved vitamin B tablet

Despite plenty of people stating how disgusting this product is, I still bought a 2.5KG bag of it. I mixed it with a banana, some oats, a tablespoon of peanut butter, some rice milk, water and cinnamon and it was one of the best shakes I've ever shake, super smooth as well!!! I havn't tried it on its own yet, but I'm trying to bulk at the moment so wouldn't have it on its own anyway.Goes Well With:(cinnamon, banana, milk, peanut butter)
Very good product, 2 minor downsides : 1. taste 2. grainy feel in mouth best solution i found so far : mix with orange juice (test several to get the right one for you) I drink it non stop in 4-5 gulps and done! :) I mix with BCAA's to get more amino acids since i'm vegan + it gives a sweeter taste.Goes Well With:BCAA (important for vegans/veggies)
i don't like that i don't get any calls and I don't know when exactly the product will be delivered... why don't you request a phone number?
The first time you drink this get ready to vomit - but you just got to man up and take the pain. I now add warm water, fill just enough water so that it is thick then straight down with one breath and have something sweet afterwards to kill the taste. Been taking this for 2 weeks - unsure of gains just yet.Goes Well With:Anything with flavour afterwards to kill the taste.
This is a great value for money pea protein. As a shake it does not taste great. However, if I mix a scoop with water into some curry sauce & vegetable stock, the nasty taste is completely gone; a great high protein curry sauce. Throw in a portion of rice and you've got all the essential amino acids. As for shakes, I mix this half and half with another chocolate flavoured pea protein which costs three times as much, and some almond milk. Again; tastes great. I definitely think savoury dishes work better with this powder though, it's a great way to add protein to vegan meals.
I have always struggled to find a protein drink that didn't bloat me until now ! This protein mixes well with no side effects such as bloating ! I have ordered more ! Shame about the taste tho I have got use to it !
It's ok. Solid vegan protein. Tastes pretty rank - mixes well with fruit juice or into food like chilli or similar. But is cheap and presumably useful! A bit more problematic if cutting as there's nothing low/zero calorie it mixes with without being so foul tasting (say if mixed with water) as to be inedible. Goes Well With:Apple juice
Have been mixing this in with my muesli for breakfast. Not as sweet as the soya protein I was previously using so maybe an acquired taste. I like the flavour as it does not really taste of much and so doesn't taint the muesli. Dissolves well into the soya milk.Goes Well With:Muesli
Good price which convinced me to give this product a go - having used pea protein in my diet for well over a year now. I have found that this one has 10 calories more per 20g serving then another leading manufacturer. It also contains far too much sodium - which you can taste - in my humble opinion. It mixes up slower but does turn out to a similar consistency but with less volume. I am stuck with 5kg of the stuff - and wish I had paid out for my regular pea protein for the many health benefits it has. But if you are on a budget and want something simple to add to shakes or porridge etc. - try this as you know no different. I often mix it with water - add my own vanilla and sweetener and it almost tastes like angel delight - especially if you make a bowl and pop it in the fridge for a bit so it thickens. Goes Well With:Porridge, weetabix, yoghurt, fruit, shakes.
The taste isn't great, I couldn't have it on it's own. I mix it with soy protein strawberry cream flavour and it still tastes pretty bad. I'm looking for other ways to use it but not sure how
Although it takes quite a lot of other ingredients to make this into a pleasant shake, I found that Pea Protein Isolate blends perfectly into savoury dishes. Be creative; half a tin of chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock, garlic, chilli powder and a scoop of pea protein powder mixed with water and you've got a high protein, low fat, low carb dish that tastes great and fills you up. Add some rice/red pepper (anything with methionine/cysteine) for a great amino acid profile.Goes Well With:Soup/curry/stir fries.
My boyfriend started taking super chemical whey protein but I do not want to take that stuff. I try to stay away from gluten and I am intolerant to dairy. This is the first protein I ever bought and will be probably buying again (maybe trying rice protein as well). The taste of Pea Protein Isolate is not good at first, but it does mix really easily with even just water (or non-dairy milk). Also, with nesquik/cocoa powder - some peanut butter too and some ice cubes, it tastes great! It satisfies cravings, and makes a great snack too. It is completely natural and the price is good, so you should definitely try it!Goes Well With:cocoa powder, yogurt, nesquik, peanut butter, bananas
I mix my Pea Protein Isolate with yoghurt and fruit (and a little fruit juice) to have for breakfast. The taste is masked well by anything else with a flavour but if you try mixing it just with water the taste is not so good! It does not mix well to make a drink but is excellent as a snack.
Pea Isolate Protein was recommended to me by a friend. When I first tried this, the taste was absolutely disgusting! However, if I was to buy a shake on how it tastes, I'd sure enough be buying 2.5kg of Nesquik instead. I've tried multiple shakes from bigger brands such as USN and Maximuscle and they've also worked well in the past but not as well as Pea Isolate Protein and not as greater value for money either. After about the second day I had gotten over the bad taste so that was no longer an issue for me. I've got the shaker with a mixing ball inside, it mixes pretty well with a higher volume of water then is recommended, I'd say around 400ml, every now and then there are the odd lumps. If you're mixing with milk, less volume is required, I'd say about 200ml. The Pea Isolate Protein has been the best at reducing the aching pains by far and has helped gain weight muscle weight the quickest, it's actually one of the main reasons I've been able to hit my target weight (along with a balanced diet and strict exercise regime). I have a serving straightaway in the morning after I've had a glass of water but before I've eaten, one serving post-training, I take this immediately and one serving just before bed. This shake has given me no internal discomfort i.e. stomach doing back flips of all dodgy chemicals you may get in other shakes. I'm writing this positive review because I'm actually just about to buy myself another 2.5kgGoes Well With:Not that I've tried it myself, I've been told it goes well with Nesquik.
I have recently bought this Protein and must say, I was pleasantly surprised as the previous vegan pea protein was REFLEX chocolate flavour. It was a lot more expensive and the first two times after a workout I ended up throwing it up and projecting it in the bathroom while showering! Then I used to keep it down but dreaded having to take it the smell alone would make me reach. So I have to say because this pea protein is what it says and isn't made to taste like something it isn't by adding vulgar sweeteners, it is very consumable - I put some in a vegetable juice of celery, broccoli, and carrots. The texture was like mushy peas (funnily enough!) which does mean stomach reflux actions for me! Thanks MYPROTEIN for fair prices and ZERO B.S. !!! I am sure make you my first choice for everything in future! PS I take this choice of protein as whey does not agree with my stomach, so really happy for these alternatives which were not available just a few years ago. Goes Well With:The bland taste means you could pretty much mix with whatever you prefer to taste!
This is worst protein powder I've ever taken the taste is horrible. I tried mixing it with everything I could think of but the smell and taste just put me off I am going back to Brown Rice Protein. I can handle the taste better. Goes Well With:none
Fabulous value as far as protein goes. Awful taste, though - as others have suggested, mix with banana and / or peanut butter and it's edible.Goes Well With:Banana, peanut butter, yogurt.
I just got my 2.5kg pear protein.. However when I tried it I was in shock it taste soo bad, I tried adding chocolate flavoring from MP, tastes even worse, tried other options still can't get it down. It's first time I can't drink something due to the taste and I used to take spirulina, chlorella etc on it's own, so be aware. Also you need 2x more water as when it mixes it has thick consistency.. Talking about effectiveness, amino acid profile is not that food so gave 4Goes Well With:nothing
I think this stuff's really decent. I've tried it and compared my results when taking whey and the progress I make seems similar so it obviously works. As for eating it, I do just that, measure out the amount as a powder and then just spoon it in my mouth (half a tablespoon at a time) and swish some water round my mouth and swallow it down. It's actually much faster to measure and consume than whey by doing this. I tried it as a shake but wasn't keen on it at all, so i'm sticking to this method. Highly recommend this product, it's great value.
Excellent product from a reliable company Quick shipment and fast delivery..Goes Well With:The Fast Diet
This is a very good alternative for those of you who don't tolerate whey. I always mix 1kg of this with 1kg of rice protein for an excellent aminoacid profile. No more bloating, no gas, excellent digestion. Mix one scoop with one glass of rice milk, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, One teaspoon of cocoa powder, oats and two tablespoons of organic cold pressed flaxseed oil for an excellent Meal replacement ( about 450 calories ) giving you the highest qaulity of protein, carbs and fat possible for an unbeatable price.
Use this protein for making protein pancakes in the morning and it mixes perfectly and makes a great consistency. It also tastes good too! I've added it to soups and stews to up the protein content too and it's worked really well. I haven't used it for shakes so can't comment.
The first time, I tried mixing with water and it was terrible, that awfull taste in my mouth. But like some suggest I tried to be creative. I mixed with some rice milk or almond and to be complete honest the awfull taste was transformed into something quite enjoyable. For the price it is, its great value.Goes Well With:Rice Milk Almond Milk
Yes, Pea Protein Isolate doesn't taste great. But you just have to be a bit creative with what you do with it. I add it to a banana/peanut butter/honey shake and can't notice it.
Needed to add lots of cocoa powder to disguise the bad taste.
Tastes ever so slightly like earth, which is strange, and it needs a lot of fluid to be mixed, though after adding some agave nectar it did taste quite nice!
I'm so glad I found this product. I've been needing to take a vegetarian protein supplement for a long time but just got fed up with them as they were either too expensive or just too disgusting to drink. This pea protein is not only the most economical protein powder I've come across but it's also bearable in taste. I can drink it on its own but if you add it to things I think you wouldn't even taste it at all. You could add it to porridge with some cinnamon and it would be a great filling breakfast. I've been taking 2 scoops a day for the last couple of weeks and I already feel a bit leaner - it's very high in protein. Great vegetarian protein problem-solver.
This Pea Protein Isolate is a good product at a brilliant price. I found it to be barely drinkable on its own, however if mixed with strong flavours like peanut butter or bananas this product is an excellent way to get protein in without the drawbacks of whey. I strongly recommend this product to those on a budget or who have issues with whey.Goes Well With:Peanut butter, bananas.
A lot of people say the Pea Protein Isolate tastes pretty disgusting. If any of you watch Scooby on Youtube, he'll tell you that you're eating for nutrition, not taste (he even says if it tastes good, don't eat it... but that may be a little extreme!). But in general, he's absolutely right. It's a protein shake, not a McFlurry. I often make straight pea protein shakes, which really aren't that bad. However, I usually mix up my daily shakes in one go with water mixed with a couple of bananas. The bananas tend to mask the taste, and your getting some slow complex carbs in the mix. I also use it to make some simple high protein flapjacks. Use: 2 large cups of rolled oats, 1 cup of pea protein, 2 table spoons of peanut butter, a handful of crushed nuts, and a handful of dried fruit. Blend it together by hand (a workout in itself!) adding pure honey until the mix binds. Get a metal oven tray and lay out the mix into a slab about a half inch thick. Preheat the oven to 100 degrees, then cook for 15 minutes. Allow to cool, cut into slices, wrap in clingfilm and put then in the fridge. Oh, and eat them of course.Goes Well With:Bananas
As a female who cannot eat gluten and prefers to stay away from dairy, I was excited to find this product as I was looking for ways to incorporate more protein in my diet (I'm a vegetarian) and this fit the bill perfectly. After reading some of the reviews on the taste, I was a little apprehensive. But the taste is NOWHERE near as bad as I expected. In fact, its earthy taste is quite refreshing and blending it up with a banana and half a tspn of coffee makes for a nice cold 'latte' substitute! This item arrived the day after I placed my order, I am super impressed with My Protein's service. Many thanks!Goes Well With:Blended banana, soups, just water
Tried Pea Protein Isolate as an alternative to whey. As a shake its pretty disgusting, the pea flavour is very strong and hard to mask. However, it is excellent for adding protein to cooking savoury foods. I have been using it as an alternative to stock in soups and you can make a tasty soup that is packed with protein and keeps you full for ages.
I found the taste of this stuff not that pleasant at first as others have stated. However, a little honey, peanut butter and fruit make it quite acceptable. Just takes a little getting used to, but the preparation isn't instant.
Don't let any bad reviews put you off this Pea Protein Isolate! It's great, I suffer celiac and lactose intolerance so any nutrient boosters are very few and whatever available is really expensive. I've been using this in savoury dishes with great results. It mixes easy and does not have a strong taste in food. This is good, high protein content that will help me put on some much needed weight in a healthy way. Please try it, it's such good value and easy to use in your meals.Goes Well With:Stew, soups, casserole and savoury dishes.
Pea Protein Isolate is a good protein, mixes pretty well, taste isnt bad, nowhere near as bad as hemp protein and a good protein content. Very reasonable for the money. Would recommend.
This Pea Protein Isolate is a brilliant product. It gives me all the amino acids I need and is really helping with muscle strength.Goes Well With:cocoa powder and cinnamon.
I have been using this protein for three months now, I was a little scared off by people saying its so horrible tasting. The first week it takes a little getting used to but now I am accustomed to it I find that it tastes very wholesome and natural. I take it with water every morning because I did not want to become too reliant on whey protein. I can only assume those who say how bad it is also have an equally delicate attitude towards training. It's only pea for goodness sake. Goes Well With:water
Pea protein isolate is great stuff. It has high protein at a low price. The taste is not so good but is still drinkable. It's not bad in soup, I use pea protein with Whole Psyllium Husks 3 times a day.
Pea protein isolate contains all of the essential amino acids and in proportions which are the closest thing you can get to human muscle in any food. Some people say that the taste is not that good, but I think it's OK. It does the job, it's healthy, cholesterol-free and at a very reasonable price. This gets top marks.Goes Well With:I take it with water.
The taste of Pea Protein Isolate is kind of funky but for the price I don't mind a bit. Just make sure Pea protein isn't your only source of protein, as the amino acid balance isn't the best, in comparison to Whey, for example.Goes Well With:Perhaps 50:50 with flavoured whey.
I also mixed this into a paste with water, and added it to soup. Pea and ham is good.Goes Well With:soup and vegatbles
Pea Protein Isolate just tastes too strong of peas, so I mix with cold water, into a paste, then add it to mashed sweet potato and mix well. The taste is reasonable.
I've been using Pea Protein Isolate over a year now as I am following the alkaline diet (no diary, gluten, wheat). This product is superb and I have built incredible muscle definition using this alone. I only wish Myprotein had more products without diary and gluten e.g. protein bars and a weight gain vegan free protein would be great too.Goes Well With:Alpha Man tablets, Omega 3 6, 9
I'm sorry to say this Pea Protein Isolate is horrible! I cannot eat it! It tastes of very concentrated peas, which I know shouldn't come as a shock to me, but it was so strong that I could not drink it! I intend throwing hit out, it's so bad. I will go back to the Soya Protein. Goes Well With:Nothing!
I get this all the time, Mainly because it's cheap and 80% protein - it cannot be beaten! Also because I cannot take too much whey or lactose - used to give me extreme flatulance ! The taste is very unpleasant at first but you get used to it. The one downside is you need alot of water to mix it, I used to take the brown rice protein which didn't need as much water and you could down it fairly quickly - this one for 1 1/2 scoops you need at least 30ml water so can be a chore to down. Would definitely recommend.
I would recommend this Pea Protein Isolate as a good non dairy option. As expected it doesn't taste nice, but it's easily drinkable. It goes quite well with strawberry Nesquik powder.Goes Well With:Strawberry Nesquik
Pea Protein Isolate is such a good source of natural protein to add to any savoury dishes! It mixes well, tastes great, and has high protein content. What else do you need!?
Pea Protein Isolate doesn't taste bad at all, it's not nice but it's not horrible. Good option for a dairy free protein.
This Pea Protein Isolate is ideal to compliment my new diet, which is dairy and gluten free. The taste is OK, but not great.
I have been using this for several months and I have noticed considerable benefits in my energy and well-being. I am a vegetarian and I have a heaped dessert spoonful two or three times a day and so I do not need to worry whether I have had enough protein. I know some people do not like the taste but to me it seems wholesome and inoffensive. It is easy to stir it into a glass of orange squash and send it down the hatch!
Tastes fine to me, I mixed it with just under a pint of water, put powder in a cup and stirred water in as I poured it and it mixed really well, and it's just a bit thicker than milk. It doesn't taste sweet at all, is this what everyone is complaining about? I think it tastes quite pleasant, kind of like chick peas (as to be expected) with no after taste. Sits easily on the stomach tooGoes Well With:water
As a protien, this Pea Protein Isolate is not bad, with no bloating or gasses, but the taste is beyond vile. I just can't get over the way it collects in the back of the throat. I've tried all additives to make it taste better but nothing helps. Overall, it's too hard to stomach the taste and texture.
So far so good with this Pea Protein Isolate! I am a cyclist and runner, and this has really helped me make sure I get my protein after an intense session running, on the bike, or at the gym. I have gained some muscle and lost some fat in the last 2 weeks of using this, but the biggest thing for me is I feel lighter on my toes and my recovery is a lot quicker! The the taste is okay. I mix mine with soya milk, a little sugar and a tea spoon of coco powder, and it tastes just like chocolate milk shake.Goes Well With:soya milk, coco.
I've just been using pea protein for a couple of weeks on the advice of my personal trainer. At first, I was gagging and drinking the whole thing in one go as I could not bare the taste. However, the taste is not that bad, it has a slight aftertaste of walnuts. I mix it with BCAA. I don't know if it's working yet but I trust my trainer.
Pea Protein Isolate is a great alternative to whey, feels more natural with no bloat or gas. Does not taste great and is tough to disguise in smoothies, but it is perfectly fine and I just drink it down with water, it mixes well. Too early to compare gains. Goes Well With:Water.
I bought this Pea Protein Isolate and mixed it with the soya protein which I usually buy for a bit of variety. People appear grossed out by the flavour/texture, but I use a hand blender so find it's fine to mix into a cold chocolate shake with pure cocoa and sucralose. I tend, at home, to incorporate it into a high protein soup, by heating whatever my choice is of about 1/2lb vegetables, adding a few scoops of this, seasonings (stock cube, pepper, garlic etc) and boiled water for a filling, tasty and healthy 5 minute soup.Goes Well With:Vegetable and fish soups, stews, savoury seasonings and sweetened cocoa-based shakes.
When I first tried Pea Protein Isolate, I wasn't impressed. I'm not a fussy eater but I didn't care for the taste of it in a drink, especially as it seemed to go lumpy if I put more than a few grams in a pint of water (which led to me drinking a lot of water to get my required dose!). I actually just shovel this stuff in my mouth, half a tablespoon at a time - when the powder is sitting on your tongue, have a swig of water and wash it round your mouth like a mouth wash and swallow it down. No bad tastes, nothing. It's great because I can have my 25grams of protein in about 30 seconds! It's great value so ideal for anyone on a budget or anyone vegan or with allergies. Check it out.
Pea Protein Isolate is a great product. It's definitely best used with savoury goods though! It mixes well and does what it says! Goes Well With:Savoury recipes
Pea Protein Isolate is excellent for me because I'm gluten and lactose intolerant. The taste is foul but it can be improved, I use cocoa powder and/or ordinary sugar to mask it and it's quite bearable, even early in the morning. This obviously isn't possible for everyone though. I've tried mixing it with the brown rice protein and it was still foul, you really need something sweet and strong to take the taste away.Goes Well With:Anything really sweet
I've read some of the reviews previous to my own and I must say I laughed a little. Okay, so I've just been using pretty much the recommended intake, 1 large scoop and filling up with water up to 300ml. I'm about 98% plant based diet anyways so I guess I got used to the taste of stuff like Pea Protein Isolate. As I drink it I don't taste anything and get an after taste of walnuts. This stuff ticks every box for me and the price is great. I've even started to incorporate it into meals as suggested in another review. It's good, clean protein. This is great stuff.Goes Well With:Water. Almond milk. Coconut milk. Various smoothie concoctions. Soups and solid meals.
The repair of Pea Protein Isolate seems to be the same as whey and high protein content in comparison to price. It tastes horrible though, and thickens into a horrible looking/smelling/tasting slop when water is added, for easily downing you are looking at 700-1000ml per 100g (suppose this could be a benefit when you are cutting and want to feel full up). I am slowly getting through my bag by mixing it with eggs, syrup and banana flavouring to create, a still funny tasting, protein cake.
I bought this Pea Protein Isolate to "mix up" my protein supplementation with the standard Whey Isolate I have been using. It has a very low sugar content so it's good for a low GI, fat burning diet and training regime. The taste is okay - obviously not as sweet as other supplements that have higher natural sugar contents, added sugar or artificial sweeteners added. It seems to be equally effective for muscle repair and recovery as the Whey Isolate. Could do with the nutritional breakdown printing on the actual product although the information is available on the website.
Pea Protein Isolate is not for mixing with sweet ingredients, it does not taste nice. It's for savoury and soups use only.Goes Well With:Soups, savoury
I read the reviews here before I gave it a try as I was worried about the taste, and it turns out it was way way worse that I expected. This stuff is absolutely disgusting, even on it's own! Do not try to sweeten it, it's a savoury powder and it's like adding sugar to salt-water! Texture wise, it thickens very quickly and needs a lot of water. I can personally manage with drinking unflavoured whey protein concentrate on its own, with just water and I have no problem with that. But this stuff will probably get you gagging and puking. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the effectiveness but I'd rather manage my lactose sensitivity with whey instead! Just a warning, if you have a stomach of steel you may be able to endure it but do not waste your money otherwise.Goes Well With:Anti nausea medication
Pea Protein Isolate is an excellent product at a great price. I received excellent service from MyProtein. It's easy to mix, with a very faint taste of raw peas. Goes Well With:Anything, especially a 'starvation' diet.
I'm not a fan of whey protein as dairy upsets my tummy a bit, so I checked out alternatives. This clocks in at very similar levels of protein, and is so effective that I actually scaled back a bit last year when I realised I was bulking up more than I wanted. I use it post-workout both for conditioning and cardio work, and find my recovery time is a lot better with less aches and pains. As mentioned, my arm tone improved massively when I was using this in combo with a lot of crossfit and boxing sessions; I find myself able to run and swim more frequently and easily when I'm boosting my protein too. The main drawback is flavour - it's quite vegetable flavoured so I've tried mixing it with low-sodium veg stock for a veg broth, stirring it into coffee and necking it (and ignoring the flavour and texture) and, most successfully, putting a bit of time in to mix it with cocoa powder, oats, MyProtein natural peanut butter, vanilla essence, a bit of agave and a pinch of salt and quite a bit of water to make protein bars. Rolled in unsweetened dessicated coconut these are delicious! Goes Well With:Peanut butter, veg soups
The Pea Protein Isolate tastes fine once your used to it, it goes down a treat and doesn't clog up my gut like whey does. Cheap and wholesome. Goes Well With:Instant Oat Powder
Pea Protein Isolate is not nearly as bad as I was expecting. Mix it with 200ml of water and it is okay. It definitely seems to help with recovery as well, I notice less soreness since I have been taking it.
Excelent Protein! Better gains than whey, easier to digest. The taste is not good, but if you mix it with 400-500ml of water and not with 150-250ml per scoop, it is drinkable. Will buy againGoes Well With:A LOT OF WATER
This is great value for what you get. Does exactly the same thing as whey, mixes well with milk or water without clumping. Make sure you put the powder in after the liquid though, otherwise it clumps. Tastes nasty, but if you aren't very picky about your foods like me then you will be fine. Just man up and drink it.Goes Well With:cocoa powder
Taste is okay but mixability isn't really that great.
Protein Quality: Is considered to have a complete protein and amino profile, however some individuals may considered combining rice or soya protein to increase amino profile. When compared to whey, pea is deficient in two amino's. In terms of digestibility pea has an absorption rate of 85%. Taste: Depends on what you can tolerate in terms of taste, not pleasant but tolerable if you're used to drinking unflavoured whey. Unflavoured protein increases the overall protein content, allows you to control the flavour and ingredients within your protein. Coco, bananas, or vanilla extract are all good substitutes to sugar. Mix-ability: Smooth texture, no lumps or bits. Due no thickeners shakes will not be thick or creamy although you could try to adjust the liquid content. Results: Similar results to whey although individuals will need to consume more protein, gram for gram, when compared to whey to achieve similar results. Overall: Due to price, results and taste. Pea is an excellent option when compared to more expensive whey powders. Improvements: Due to the less than adequate taste individuals may prefer to add coco, bananas or other flavoured extracts, to increase amino profile add BCAA's, EAA's or L glutamine to your shakes.Goes Well With:BCAAs, L glutamine, EAA's
I bought this as it was cheap and the protein was very high. I read about the taste and thought it couldn't be that bad because I have taken lots of unflavoured proteins before and just drank them in one go. This however has a very strong taste and is very hard to disguise. I tried to hold my nose and gargle it down but it was thick and lumpy and I nearly threw up. It was a waste of money but for the price and the high percentage of protein it is a brilliant product, so if you have the taste buds of steel and a strong stomach then go ahead. Goes Well With:Not much
The Pea Protein Isolate is okay but it tastes awful. That's unavoidable with a product such as this but I've found ways to mask that. The product itself is fantastic. I've been looking for a lactose free protein supplement that my girlfriend and I can share, and this is exactly what we need. It fits our macros and is perfect for anybody who gets digestive troubles assimilating whey supplements.Goes Well With:Flavoured instant oats
I don't eat milk, eggs and meat so I discovered this Pea Protein Isolate. I have been using this protein since November and I've grown 3 kilos of muscles training after four days a week. I use mixed and blended with water, one banana, one apple, two or three spoon of this on and two spoons of instant oats. Banana and apple do the great job to cover entirely the taste of this one. I've ordered hemp protein an will use that for the morning and this pea protein for the evening. Hemp looks good but is expensive, I think that the ratio of quality to price, this protein is amazing. Good job MyProtein. Goes Well With:banana, apple, water
After developing Coeliac Disease and finding traditional whey proteins no longer suitable I decided to turn to Pea Protein Isolate as an alternative. I must admit I was a bit nervous about the taste after reading some of the other reviews on this site but I was pleasantly surprised. Don't get me wrong this will never win any taste awards but it's not that bad, in fact, after mixing it with some fruit, juice and water it actually tastes okay. I would say it has a rather neutral to sour taste but it is easily drinkable. I also use a blender to mix it up and don't have any problems with the mix. Again it's not the smoothest in the world but once more it is quite easy to drink. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an alternative to traditional whey proteins. Mix it properly and after a few sessions you will get used to the taste. So much so that I have ordered 3 months supply.
Used as a flour substitute for savory things while cooking it is fantastic.Goes Well With:Things that are savory
This stuff is never going to win any awards based on taste, but it mixes well enough and provides a great alternative source of protein for those allergic to dairy
