After buying the 2.5 kg pouch I was impressed with the value for money compared to other brands such as high 5 as you get more bang for your buck. I wanted a pure protein shake and not a sugar shake with very little protein in it so opted for this. The taste like many other reviews state isn't nice and after trial and error I have found 300ml of water and 300ml of milk together with a flat measuring of the powder in the scoop provided is the most palatable. Milk on its own is too thick and water makes it taste worse but is much easier to drink so I've found that half and half has the best taste to drinkability ratio.
The powder worked well and made me feel stronger plus aided my weight gain.
So a lot of people have commented on the unpleasant taste of this 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 but I deducted one star because on the website they say "gluten free" but on the pouch there is sticker which informs you that this produt is manufactured in a 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 this 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. This protein source 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 it (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 this 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 this 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
The only protein drink that does not leave me feeling bloated like other protein drinks ! Would recommend it !Goes Well With:Vanilla flav drops
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 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.
Great value for money. 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
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 this Protein 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 the Protein 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 it 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 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!
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 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, it 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.
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 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.
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 that this 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
