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.
Decided to remove as much dairy as possible from my diet and read some great reviews on benefits of Hemp protein. I dove right in and bought 2 x 2.5 kg bags. I read the reviews and people mentioned the taste as being bad but ok when mixed with almond milk, fruits etc. so I thought "how bad can it be? stop being a wimp and drink the dam thing". i was grotesquely wrong. the taste. wow. it's very earthy and artificial. like how I imagine soil tastes after a car tyre was melted on it. it lingers in the nasal canals forever, clinging to your nose hair. you may think I'm joking, but, the drink, it knows how bad it is and wants to punish you for as long as possible. the thought of particles of this soil drink clinging to my nose hair consumed my thoughts so much I considered pulling out the hairs as an attempt to outsmart it. I mixed it with, peanut butter, fruits, hazelnut and almond milk, amongst others and it only makes it worse because the initial taste is relatively ok, but then the evil b*stard ambushes you at the end when all the lovely flavours have left your pallet. bam! burnt tyre soil in your nose. people giving this 5 stars and pretending it's OK, I'm annoyed at them. under no circumstances is this ok and I bought it on the back of People saying it was ok. it's simply not true. I managed half of a bag before I succumbed to failure and went back to whey. fellow my protein customers have let me down with their reviews. for some reason , they're pretending it's OK because they're scared to admit they made a terrible mistake. "I mix mine with a banana, Chia seeds, manuka honey and really compliments it". That's BS. only purchase this if you want to do bush tucker trials. Goes Well With:kangaroo nut, meal worm, cockroach and all bush tucker trials. Satan's post work out refuel
After research i decided that hemp protein was for me, it sits well with my lifestyle and training choices for my food and nutrition. The Hemp Protein hits the mark as it has all the essential aminos and the right balance for omega 3 & 6. I love the taste (took a little adjustment), The Raw Hemp flavour is "earthy" which reminds me how real and natural it is and how much better that is for both my mental and physical development. If you are trying to follow a natural eating process this is the product for you
Despite its nutty smell, this product really does taste like pondweed when mixed with water alone. However, three teaspoons of instant hot chocolate and I've become quite addicted to it! Perfect if you're trying to avoid the lactose and gluten found in other products. I have been using product for two weeks and am already seeing the benefits in conjunction with my healthy 5:2 diet and normal routine of going to the gym 3-4 times per week. Getting the lean definition that I just wasn't achieving with my normal eating/ exercise habits. Highly recommended if you're looking for leaner definition! Goes Well With:Water, instant hot chocolate and a dash of almond milk.
Tastes of hemp, can't really judge effectiveness yet, but does postpone hunger and facilitates recovery.Goes Well With:Bananas, nut milk, cranberry juice, vegetable soups, homemade protein bars. Enjoyable savoury or sweet.
I was scared of buying this as people where talking about how bitter it was, but if you can down the taste BCAAs this is a walk in the park. It's slightly bitter, but bitter tastes are meant to increase your bile production helping digestion. You can also taste it's nuttiness in whatever you're making but you will easily get used to it. I have flatulence problems with almost every protein powder on the market but this has eliminated it completely. I've even stopped getting acne too as my gut has healed from the damage. I haven't lost any mass since switching from dairy and egg proteins and it mixes easier than Casien and Whey. It absorbs a lot of water so you're going to have to add a lot more moisture to your recipes.Goes Well With:Vegan Proats: 1 scoop with Rolled Oats, Banana, Sweetened Soy, Mixed spice and/or Cocoa. Vegan Pre/Post Workout Shake: 2 scoops with Creatine, Spirulina, Green Tea, Cocoa, Ginger, Spinach Beetroot Juice, Mixed Berries, Banana, Ceylon Cinnamon. And the best recipe....Water.
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
For those struggling with the texture and taste, try putting a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter in. I also mix it with cashew or coconut milk too. Yes it leaves an aftertaste still, but just keep chanting "hmmm, peanut butter, hmmm, peanut butter" and it may be a bit more palatable. But so far so good for me, I've noticed there's high fibre in this and it doesn't leave me gassy like whey powders. Goes Well With:peanut butter
Recently I ordered and tried the hemp protein for the first time. Having used whey and soy proteins happily for a year I just wanted to try something different for a change. This hemp protein makes me very nauseous with severe vomiting and gives me hours of stomach cramps. I also had my wife try it and she metabolized it just fine. So it seems that I have an intolerance to it which was baffling to me because I can literally eat anything and my stomach never argues with me. I had this kind of reaction for the first time in my life from this protein. Anyways, I wrote this just as a precaution to try a new protein first and see if it works for you before you order the biggest bag and then realize you have an intolerance to it.
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)
Being vegan and lactose intolerant I was looking for a good plant protein powder to help with my fitness. Hemp protein is definitely my favourite as it has a complete set of essential amino acids and it's very kind to my gut. It does have an earthy 'green' taste if you're having it on its own which I'm not particularly a fan of, but I blend it in a smoothie with 2 frozen bananas, berries, spinach, chia seeds, nuts and almond/cashew milk and it tastes great. Blending it mixes it well and I haven't noticed any issues with it floating or separating. Finished the first bag and about to buy my second one. Thanks!
I have been looking for a supplement without all the additional nonsense they put in some protein powders these days, and this is it. Very clean and natural, great in the mornings in an earthy breakfast smoothie and perfect for a post workout shake. You have to play with different food combinations to get the right mixability and taste in a smoothie initially, but the natural, earthy flavour remind you of how clean it really is. Regarding post workout a full scoop of hemp with alpro coconut milk is all you need to chug it down, personally a perfect tasting combo. Ps. the new sealant on the unflavoured bag is a big hit, easy to press together and fasten without needing to match the sides up. Goes Well With:Coconut Milk
This product is literally the worst tasting product I have encountered. The taste is literally like eating leaves and it doesn't mix with water at all. I will definitely be sticking with the brown rice protein!Goes Well With:nothing
Well I've never had hemp protein before so this was my first time. I chose it in alternative for whey. It is proven to be more healthy than when but it tastes really bitter. Ive tried mixing with smoothies. But it still tastes bitter.Goes Well With:Erm yet to discover what it goes well with.
Very very happy with this product goes great with my veg smoothies and feel fantastic after drinking them. I blend it so it mixes very well but without a blender its a bit harder to get rid of all the lumps. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to stay away from milk based proteins. Goes Well With:Kale and avocado smoothies
For all those who cannot take the taste of pure hemp protein - be a men and just swallow it - it's about the effectiveness and when it comes to the later one - there is second to none. Best, pure protein on the market!Goes Well With:Kiwi, banana, chocolate
Fully digestible and natural - forget everything else - this is the one you need.Goes Well With:Dark chocolate, ginger, milk.
Mixes well. The taste isn't terrible, nor particularly pleasant. Just tastes vaguely nutty. The best plant power protein for vegans and anybody looking to cut down their animal product consumption. I have mine after workouts in the evening so that I dont have to eat late - digests very quickly with no hassle so it doesn't disrupt my sleep at all.Goes Well With:Water
I'm currently trying to make as many vegan changes to my diet as possible and after being disgusted with the soy protein I thought I'd try hemp. It doesn't look or smell great and instead of diving straight in, I thought I'd try half hemp half whey to see how I got on. I agree that the taste it earthy/nutty but again, it's better than the taste of soy. It mixes better than soy, it doesn't go all thick and gloopy but yes, as other reviews have stated, it is quite grainy. However, as long as you've got a glass of water with you, you can just wash it down with a sip to get rid of the taste and texture it leaves. I'm willing to finish the bag to see if my taste buds adjust. Goes Well With:I use 1 scoop whey, 1 scoop hemp, 1 spoon of Cadbury's highlights hot chocolate and a spoon of sweetener.
Perfect vegan protein source for active people. Tastes mostly nutty. A slight grassy note under the nutty taste but quite pleasant. Mixes very easily. Seems to assimilate well, easy to digest. Liking it a lot. Goes Well With:Mixes nicely in water. Also works blended in with seeds and oats for a milky drink.
