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.

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.

GOL is an excellent line, but this Beyond Organic Protein Formula tastes like ground chalk with the grit to prove it. No question - this is horrible stuff! I do not care how "good" it says it is on the label.

I used to use this protein powder regularly to up my protein intake. That was also the time when I would get severe breakouts all over my face, particularly on my jaws. I did a lot of research and tried everything I could - keeping a diet journal recording everything that I ate, taking up elimination diets, stopping certain supplements, buying and switching all kinds of acne products, etc. - to no avail. All this time I was still using this protein powder almost on a daily basis because never did it once occur to me that this could be the culprit. It was through a painfully long and frustrating process that I finally got it figured out. As soon as I stopped using this protein powder, my breakouts also ebbed away. I was dumbfounded at first, then it all became clear when I found out that it actually contained fermented soy (natto). Just wanted to share my experience in case somebody out there is having similar issues!

This is a great protein supplement, but it tastes terrible. It comes through no matter what you make it with. I've tried fruit, juice, rice milk - they all make it worse. I've been very disappointed in the taste of Garden of Life products and it's a shame - because I think they are excellent quality.

This protein powder taste like coarse brown rice powder and impossible for me to drink without sweetening it. Every time I drink this protein I will get sore throat, nausea, stomachache and bloatedness and there was once my intolerance reaction lasted about 3 days. I am not going to buy this protein anymore despite having organic and healthful ingredients and stick to whey protein.

Is this complete protein? Why doesn't it mention anything about being complete, and where is the amino acid profile? I only figured out this after using it. Not all protein powders are the same. I found the Sun Warrior Blend provided much better results.
