Vitacost Whole Food Pea Protein Concentrate - Non-GMO -- 16 oz (454 g)
Great Price and Good Taste
I am always on the lookout for other protein powders to alternate with my main one, rice protein. I only purchase Growing Naturals rice protein and have tried their pea protein too. I found the texture of the pea protein to be smooth enough but the taste was a bit strong so I never ordered it again. So I see Vitacost's pea protein for under $10 and thought I would give it a try. It's as smooth, if not a tad smoother than the name brand and the taste isn't as pronounced. It's very comparable nutrient wise to the name brand too so I'm sticking with the Vitacost brand. I just added it to my Set and Save.

Nutrition my way!
I usually have a smoothie for breakfast and I prefer to add my own flavors. With this product, I can make a quick drink, my way, and know the nutrition is there!!!

Clean pea taste
This pea protein is clean tasting and has no funky aftertaste. Also, it blends completely into a fruit smoothie. Because of the superior taste, I even substitute 1/4 c of pea protein for 1/4 c of flour when I make dough for my samosa dough!

At least it's cheaper
I bought this product because it seemed to have a good balance between calories, protein grams and price. Compared to what I was using before, this does not taste as good and does not "act" the same in a smoothie, leaving it runnier than what I used before. So, I mixed the two kinds together, pretty much making the initial product as bad as this one. *Check out my recommendation! = D

I have no idea why this product is rated as low as it is. It is an unflavored plant-based protein powder, so it is not going to have a creamy consistency like a dairy protein would. But it blends well and once I add my berries and mango to my shake, the taste is indistinguishable. People who want a vanilla-flavored protein can either add a drop of vanilla extract and some sweetener to their beverage or buy one that's already flavored (and has a long list of ingredients). That's NOT what this product is! This is a pure, non-GMO, pea protein with one of the lowest sodium levels I have seen in a pea protein, Overall, I think this is a great value.
