Even though I am a vegetarian who eats eggs and limited dairy (organic cottage cheese mostly) which I am trying to eliminate, I find it hard to get enough protein without adding too many calories and/or carbs to go along with it. I work out A LOT at the gym and my life is one big diet to stay slender. So, I've been searching for an extra protein I could add in without excess calories, fat, carbs.... THIS IS GREAT! I put off trying it for so long because I kept reading people say that the smell is awful and the taste is worse. That they can't mask the taste no matter what they do. It also seemed that all these people were trying to blend it into sweet things, like smoothies and such. I never even bothered to try and put this in something sweet! It's from a vegetable after all :) I have made it two ways so far. One, which is the easiest, is to mix it into soup. It thickens it, makes it more of a meal and I don't have much more in the way of calories. The second way, is that I made veggie burgers with it! It ups the protein content of the recipe and gives it much more substance. P.S. I don't really smell anything, let alone a foul smell. For me, this has been AWESOME and great post workout. I hope this helps someone who has my same issues :) (Great price for a HUGE size of protein powder of any kind!)

Really nasty taste, serving size way too big!

I`m finding it difficult to hide the strong flavor. Mixing it into a smoothie with fruit doesn`t work.

This power does have a distinct pea flavour, and is not very pleasant.

This is one of the worst tasting protein powders I've ever had. I love that it has great ingredients and a higher level of protein, but the taste of chalky and weird! Even with berries and fruit, I can't get past the taste!

Flavour for me is fine, but if I can't get it to blend up well enough then what's the point? Will not repurchase.

No problems with packaging, everything feels secure and safe to consume. It's easy to dissolve but the taste is very sandy and harsh. It's cheap, but after using Garden of Life protein, I'm stuck to that brand's protein shakes. Creamy goodness, but it's so expensive.

The taste is not good for me.

This stuff is all-natural and with no other additives, which makes it an attractive proposition. There is no stevia and no flavouring. It also has a complete amino acid profile. So far so good. Unfortunately it just doesn't mix with any liquids! It goes like paste and if you don't drink it immediately it sinks to the bottom of the liquid and forms a clump. Oh and it tastes foul. Putting into porridge or soup is the only way to use this powder in my opinion and I need a powder I can put into a shake.

I found that I had to make lots of dark cocoa powder and frozen bananas into this protein powder to make it remotely drinkable. I did like the final results of my concoction; however, I doubt that I will ever buy this product again.
