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!)
Many vegetarians seeking to maximize their protein intake are familiar with the idea of combining foods which compliment one another's amino acid deficiencies. Combinations like rice + beans or peanut butter + wheat bread provide protein with an amino acid spectrum closer to that of meat than either food does on its own. In keeping with this idea, I combine this stuff with a roughly equal amount of unflavored rice protein. I believe the result is a higher quality protein; for instance, looking at the labels, the rice protein has about 3 times as much methionine per unit as the pea protein (legumes are typically low in methionine), while the pea protein has about twice as much lysine as the rice (grains are typically low in lysine). I have been waiting for someone like Now foods to take up this idea and offer a protein powder derived from multiple vegetable sources for an improved amino profile. Something else I'd like to say about this stuff is: not only does it dissolve easily when mixed, without foaming up; it also seems to improve the solubility of the rice protein powder and other powders I mix it with. I actually pre-mix the powders, just to avoid having to open up 4 different jars every time I make a protein shake. I take an oversized 2 gal container and combine the 2 lbs of pea protein with 1.5 lbs of rice protein, plus about 1 lb of Now "Carbo-Gain" maltodextrin (I currently need the extra calories) and a very little bit of calcium/magnesium citrate powder. The rice protein, calcium, and (worst of all) maltodextrin powders all like to clump on their own, but not when pre-mixed into the slightly-coarse pea protein. It all dissolves easily in a regular drink shaker w/ no agitator insert. Finally, about the flavor: I have spent a lifetime choking down various unpalatable protein powders -- mostly flavored and unflavored soy and whey proteins. The flavors and textures I've encountered have ranged from mildly unpleasant to nauseating. Swallowing a protein shake always used to require a minor act of will. But mixed into low-sodium vegetable juice, this pea and rice protein combo I have been using is actually pretty delicious. It honestly tastes like some kind of veggie soup. It's good with or without the maltodextrin, which adds a slight sweetness. I have mixed it with grapefruit and orange juice too; the combination of flavors is a little peculiar... little bit unpleasant. I try to stick with the veggie juice.
Misleading Reviews almost stopped me

From the reviews I thought this powder tasted horrible not just tasteless but when I tried it I found it's just tasted like unflavored vegetable powder and not that bad.. this protein does what it says an unflavored Junk free protein powder so stop crying about its taste coz it's tasteless. the only drawback for this protein is that it's very fluffy affected by static electricity that when i take a scoop alot if it flies away it doesn't have this steady texture of whey protein i even stop breathing whenbi pick the scoop and drop it deep inside my shaker bottle to avoid powder waste...
This has the Best variety of essential Amino Acids .

I bought this as it has such a great variety of amino acids that are essential for your health , it is one of the best protein powders that some one that has Diabetes can buy as it is low GI and does not elevate your blood sugar . Whey proteins' elevate your blood sugar and keep it high for days . this product does not do that and is very good for you , Great ingredients , the only down side it tastes like baby formula a little .

really good product!! vegan, gluten free and gives me energy when for my intense exercise!
Bad taste is an understatement.

Now, I only got this because my stomach is awfully weak and I've tried other protein supplements and they all gave me issues. I was, to be really honest, extremely excited for the product to arrive. I blatantly ignored all the reviews about the terrible taste and trusting my Chinese taste buds and that everyone else was just weak. Well, first of all, it smells like fish food. So, I really do not want to be a fish in my next life. Next, the taste of it by itself is... terrible. The texture is sandy and thick and the taste is just bad. I mixed it with six HUGE spoons of honey and it was still quite terrible. I then mixed that with Mcdonald's ice lemon tea and it was a lot better. But let's be real, buying a large iced lemon tea every time I need a boost in protein isn't exactly practical. The final blow for me was when I mixed it with oatmeal. I do add condensed milk into the mixture and it nearly made me puked. I really wish I could return this and exchange it for something more palatable. If you want a challenge, go ahead. The price is great and what it provides is excellent. The taste, however, that's a different story.
