Tried hemp protein powder in smoothies, just couldn't get over the gritty texture. I'm an avid runner and enjoy mixing this into a smoothie after runs...almond milk, banana, and a lot of greens and ice along with a scoop of this is awesome. It mixes really well. I enjoy the vanilla flavor and although there is still a little texture I can detect of the powder in the smoothie, it is far more tolerable than other vegan options out there.
What happened to Strawberry flavor?
I love this product because it has everything I am looking for in a vegan protein power, and omits everything I don't want such as soy, etc. I have been buying the strawberry and also the vanilla and I love them both, but I can't find the strawberry flavored one anywhere, even online. What happened, did you discontinue it?
I sure hope not! If so, are you going to make another flavor to replace it? I like to switch flavors every day to make it a variety for me; I don't drink the chocolate often, as it isn't my favorite--only a once in a while thing. Can you please let us know what's up with the strawberry flavor? Is it being discontinued and antoher one will replace it? Thanks!
As others have noted I too have a health condition that warrants me to be a vegetarian. It took months to find the right protein that my body would accept and this was the product that saved me! Have now been using this product for going on three years and after all the others I tried this one was the best. I'm a little unhappy that the strawberry is going to be discontinued. Please keep up the good work because finding truly good sustainable products for better health are hard to find. Thanks Genuine Health.
I just got the Vegan Protein- Vanilla . I have been a whey protein drinker for years and actually bought this protein for my fiancé so i can get her to get more protein. I ended up liking it. I mixed it with Almond Milk and SUper Seed Fiber from Garden of Life and i was in heaven. I will be buying this protein for a while. Thanks
When I started the JJ Virgin elimination plan, I was lucky to walk into Vitamine Shoppe and choose your product after reading a gazillion labels. There are so many, I liked that your product combines a few different types of proteins. Both chocolate and vanilla are yummy. I add chia seeds or ground flax, almond milk or coconut milk and some blueberries and its delish! Since then I have tried other powders and they are awful. I'm sticking with you guys! Thanks!
Easy to digest, Masks raw greens
Though not now, I was vegan for two years, vegetarian for ten, so have not been so good at eating enough protein. I've tried numerous mixes and your mix is the best: easy to digest, high in protein, absent of a bunch of additives, and non-offensive taste. (It is a tad sweet for me but I blend it with a banana and raw spinach and unsweetened almond milk--guaranteeing my greens in the morning. Thank you so much for developing this mix. Please keep it in production.
I've tried a lot of protein powders and this one is the best. I added a handful of frozen raspberries and it whipped up into a thick frozen drink. I'm going to try the chocolate next.
My health had always been a priority since my early childhood. I suffered from an automobile accident age 3. Am a living miracle 2b here - 1963 attempting to cross a busy-city intersection alone and was run-over by a delivery truck driver. I've suffered extensive intestinal re-constructive surgery at the toddlers age of 3. Over my life the sensitivity of my bowels , stomach /digestive function consumed my ability live freely. At the age I now live your protein has revived my insides. The ease in which my body reacts to just one (1) daily morn shake of ORGANIC vegan protein strawberry flavored changed me.
A newbie here. This is a super product. I also would like to see one that has less or no flavour, but am very pleased with the results and that is the bottom line.
I started using Genuine Health Protein Powder when I was at my weakest, most fatigued state. When visiting my friend, she was alarmed and immediately started me on a program with the most important being the protein. You see, I'd been ill for many years, had gained 70 pounds, and my digestive system was so compromised from surgeries, medicines, and limited food choices. I hardly ate anything because I couldn't tolerate most everything... especially proteins; with protein so very important to our bodies for fuel, my health just continued to get worse. More fatigue, more weakness, and pain. With my new program, I started on the protein powder, beginning with two shakes a day and was able to absorb the protein because it was so easy to digest. Within three weeks time, I was completely turned around and on the road to complete wellness. I had more strength, energy, and stamina than I had in many years. Now, seven months later, I've lost the seventy pounds and get up every morning with a protein shake, starting my day with energy, and the joy of being able to plan a day without being too fatigued to finish even one task.
I would like to add this; I once ran out and went to the local vitamin store that carries this particular brand and they were out of stock. So I looked at labels and picked another brand that appeared to be the very same ingredients, thinking that I would only need to use this until my next order. I didn't expect any difference but there absolutely was; it took me several days to figure out that my lack of stamina and general feeling of being sluggish was the this other brand. As soon as I was back on the Genuine Health Vegan Protein Powder I was back to myself again. I'll never use anything else!
This is easy to mix, tasty but not too strong a flavor to mix with coffee as I often do. I chose vegan because it is a mix of proteins, not because I am a vegan or even vegetarian. I do have some issues with lactose, and don't like to overdo soy. So I am very happen with this one, and am back for more.
In the blender with frozen blue berries and water, is amazing way to start the day.
I got used to the taste of unflavored whole food protein with banana, strawberries and udo's. this is too sweety flavory or something. I'd rather have a plain version and add fruit for natural flavor and sweetness.
I mix your natural vanilla product with juice and frozen fruit in the blender. It is delicious with all types of fruit and juice. Now I know some will say any product would be good with fruit and juice but I have tried other brands of vegan protein mixed the same way and couldn't even get down one glass. Wonderful product!
I change up my protein powders to make sure I get a variety: rice, pea, hemp, green-based, sprouts, etc and so have tried (and use) a good number. This is actually one of the better ones I have tried. Kept me sated for hours. It has a bit of that stevia taste but not as bad as some of the others. Add my vote though too for Natural Flavor without any extra additives.
Re: Great product, but too much packaging
Thank you for your comment. All our powders are sold by weight as opposed to volume. The powders can settle during shipping and storage and this explains why the containers may appear to be less than full. When the containers are filled at our warehouse, they are virtually full. Every container is weighed to ensure the correct number of grams are present in the container.
Great product, but too much packaging
I've been trying this product for the past several weeks, and am quite satisfied with everything about it... the taste does take some getting used to, but I've found mixing it with rice milk or soy milk is a definite help. The only complaint I have is in regards to the containers they ship it in... they're only filled up halfway to the top! In this day and age where environmental issues are so prominent, it's surprising to see that companies still resort to wasteful packaging practices just to create an illusion of better value. Anyone who buys the product quickly realizes this, so why not give up the charade and cut down on plastic consumption?
Finally a protein powder for those with Food Interolances!
I am Non-Celiac Gluten, Casein, and Soy Intolerant. Obviously, because of this, I've had to modify my diet drastically!! I have been looking for a protein powder that was free of these ingredients, and have tried several different brands. This is by far the best tasting powder I've tried. And the consistency when blended is smooth - especially considering that Hemp protein powder I've used in the past has had a sandpaper grit texture to it.
The only reason I couldn't give this protein powder a 5 star was because of the vanilla flavor. I have never been a fan of vanilla flavored things, as I'm a proud Chocoholic. I agree with a few of the other reviewers on other flavor choices: flavor free and chocolate.
Best Vegan Protein I've Ever Tried
This protein powder mixed really well in the blender and added a wonderful flavour to my normal protein shake. You should try it with a teaspoon of Nutella and a banana; the taste and texture are phenomenal.
I am an avid exerciser and teach bootcamps and body sculpting. It took days for my body to heal after workouts, leaving me lethargic and moody.
Literally after two days of Vegan Proteins...I have more energy. I am not in pain, my body has healed incredibly and I have energy so I don't tucker out towards the end of the week.
Far Better Than I Anticipated.
I have been searching for a healthy alternative to soy, whey and other additives, flavoring and artificial everything.... this is the product for me. I wanted to make it even more flavorful, so I add 1/2 teaspoon of organic cocoa powder. Wow, it really trumps up the taste. This product was recommended by my Naturopath.
GREAT PRODUCT TO BAKE WITH.
I have a dancer daughter who is very hard to keep weight on when she is competing. She's lactose and dye intolerant so a number of weight gain options are immediately eliminated.
We didn't want to use soy products beacuse she is so young and whey based proteins give her trouble.
I use the Vegan proteins plus in baked goods like muffins, bread, cookies and loaves to help her keep her energy and weight up. The only thing that would be better is a flavour free option of this product.
I felt great in less than 21 days, I would highly recommend this product for energy and weight loss as I have lost a couple of pounds on it over a 2 week period and my energy levels have increased. I can assure you will not be disappointed with Vegan protein+.
tastes great and mixes really well!
I've tried different vegan proteins in the past and all either taste bad or don't mix well.
I'm not vegetarian but I like to rotate my protein sources and Vegan Proteins + is excellent!
I LOVE IT!
EXCELLENT VEGAN ALTERNATIVE
Light flavour and a great alternative to my usual whey protein. Great breakfast alternative!!
