If you can get past the texture...
If you can get past the texture and taste then this is a great value but the particle size is large compared to other protein powders and will sink to the bottom if you dont drink right after shaking/blending. Yeah I will stick to pea powder and just taking flax oil for omega 3.
Simple Natural Hemp Protein - vegan
Great inexpensive, 100% organic, animal-free protein source. After opening, you can put some in a jar for current use, and freeze the rest in a Ziploc bag for later. Adds a slight "grassy" taste and texture, so may be better for bars, baked goods, and sauces, rather than protein shakes or cereal toppings.
BEST PROTIEN YET:
I started using this product for the first time today. I can't drink Whey anymore as my allergy test showed I am allergic to something in it and that is in milk. So, on a whim I decided to order your hemp product. I don't understand the first comment about "It does NOT dissolve well in liquid..." I hate to make smoothies and I only like to put powders in about 3 ounces of water in a Corn Starch tumbler and mix it up with a Corn Starch straw and drink. No gritty texture and I was so surprised that there is no bad taste! This evening I decided to add my tablespoon of Lecithin and a tablespoon of Chia seeds--adding no extra water--was great! It wasn't thick; wonderful! Thank you for such a great protein product! : ) Em
Does not dissolve well; tastes icky
Had high hopes for this hemp product, but very disappointed. It does NOT dissolve well in liquid, but retains a gritty texture. It also has a flavor that is not particularly pleasant, even when I mixed it with vanilla. I switched to split pea protein powder in vanilla, which is fantastic. My original goal was to find a protein powder that was not dairy, since milk proteins, when dried, add a lot of cholesterol to your protein drinks.
Nutiva Organic Hemp Protien 50% makes a great post work-out meal. I prefer the 16 oz size of the original flavor. If you are looking for an alternative to whey or soy protein supplements-this is it. It blends well with frozen fruit and fruit Juice. I blend mines daily with orange juice and frozen bananas and mango-yummy. It’s a great source of protein for vegetarians/vegans or for anyone who wants a low fat high protein nutritional supplement.
