Mike Adams of naturalnews . com conducted a series of lab tests and found that this product contains high levels of Tungsten and other heavy metals. You can find articles online if you google. I bought this product but it never just felt right to use it. I'm glad we didn't use it more than once, and I threw it in garbage after reading the lab results.

Hello, I am from Croatia, and been looking to buy organic supplement for my bodybuilding. I have narrowed it down to Raw Protein and Boku Super Protein, but went with Raw Protein due to the facts it got 14 sprouts. Product mixes great when you put it in your Klean Kanteen and shake it with 2dcl of water. No chunks, only foam. Smell and taste takes a while to get used to. Protective foil rips from the container when opening the container. There is a plastic measuring spoon inside. Garden Of Life wouldn't respond to inquiry about How much percentage in raw protein is sprouts from rice and how much other sprouts, but rice is listed first, so it's clear that there is most rice sprouts in it. Raw probiotics are plus. Product is actually 99% organic, due to the fact that probiotics can't be classified as organic or not ( to my understanding ). Make sure you buy 1 or 2 containers at first, to make sure you are okey with the taste and smell. If that doesn’t bother you, I think you will do fine with this product. I have given it 5 stars. It's organic, and RAW, it shouldn't taste like chocolate, so we need to get over it, in my book 5 stars.

The most complete and healthiest option when it comes to protein supplements ! It doesn't only help build muscles and recover, it also improves your health and extends your life at the same time. That is what I am looking for in a product. Looks expensive, but then, look closer, the list of ingredient is impressive! The taste will only suit "hardcore" raw-vegans, but you can get away with it by mixing the protein powder with apple juice. Xavier Dolino - Ireland

The reason that the people in this country are sick & dying is because we've allowed taste & price to guide our eating behaviors for the past 50 years. This is a product of the Earth, thus the very earthy taste. I would say that it tastes like basic white flour. I mix 2 scoops (~40grams protein) in a 32 ounce mason jar with 12-16 ounces mixed berries & 8-10 ounces organic apple juice. To me it tastes pleasant but not overly delicious. That said, you didn't buy/try this powder for it's taste. You did so because it's a superfood source of protein which will not only fuel, but cleanse your body. Think of certain foods/supplements the way you do exercise...not always pleasant while you're doing it, but the benefits well worth it.

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this or not...I don't care for the green drinks particularly, and am gluten/lactose intolerant. So, thought I would give this a go for a quick protein snack. It's actually very mild in taste and even quite delightful tasting! I take containers of it with me in the car with my shaker bottle and water. I have a "shake" after a gym workout (before coming home) and also have it with me in case I'm out and about longer than I think I will be...then I can have something healthy and tasty to consume without buying/eating junk. I will definitely buy more.
