Source Naturals Pea Protein Power™ -- 32 oz
didn't like at first
I have been experimenting with different protein powders since switching to a mostly plant based diet almost 2 years ago. Whey and egg white are out, obviously. I have only used non-flavored powders as I like the versatility of adding my own flavor. I like soy the best, but am wary of soy isolate due to what I have read. Long story short, I like this product; but only mixed with 8 oz. of OJ. With other juices/liquids the pea taste was too prominent for me.

LOVE the Taste
I am a pea protein lover
July 18, 2014
I want to avoid any protein powders with any kind of rice, soy, dairy or gluten... that is kind of tough! So I like pea sources... This works. Taste is good. I add it to cereal and smoothies. It stirs without a blender if need be... As a protein it supposedly works better when you also get grain protein in a day... Thinking of trying pumpkin seed protein powder next. But if you're looking for pea, this product is worth a try.

This may possibly may seem a little picky, however, as health and fitness advocates, we like to follow a strict regimen, including accurate diet portions. Source Naturals' Pea Protein Power leaves a wide variable with its general serving suggestion of 2 "heaping" tablespoons.
While we've found this product to be excellent (taste, noticeable benefits -- greater stamina, etc), the most common complaints are more accurate measurement (serving sizes). One reviewer posed the question "big heap or little heap" (funny but descriptive!).
Ergo, a Source Naturals' researcher responded to our inquiry about more accurate serving sizes with the following: (by "heaping tablespoons") we mean instead of leveling (scraping off the little mound of substance) the tablespoon you leave a little mound of it on top. Two heaping tablespoons will be approximately 18 grams plus or minus 1.
Very helpful feedback especially "+/- 1 gram" vs. just 2 heaping tbsps. However, the standard unit of measure is 1 tbsp = 15 grams, which is the measurement used by most high quality protein powders.
Again, exceptional, high quality, highly beneficial and great tasting product. We recommend Source Naturals Pea Protein Powder to acquaintances, friends and clients.

PERFECT PROTEIN POWDER
I am allergic to soy, eggs, and whey, so protein powders were pretty much off the list for me, until pea protein powder came on the market! This is a great brand, solvent free, and contains no flavor which I prefer. I add my own vanilla extract and stevia to smoothies to offset the neutral taste of the protein powder. YUM!
