Tastes great when made with full cream milk 😋
I have tried the value whey before and I must say that is much better than pe protein.
This does dries out so quickly no much how much water or milk I add to my porridge. It becomes this dry bland paste that you just can't eat. It is good as a protein shake just with water/milk but wouldn't recommend mixing it with anything else.
I purposefully took time during lockdown to try some different proteins. I purchased one from Happy Way the cost for a 500g bag is around $60 (there are some useful nutrients in there) however the taste is horrific. One from Arboone which is delicious but I didn't feel full.
I then purchased your Double Choc Pea Protein and it is delicious and half the price and it makes me feel full. I am so much happier supporting a NZ company too. I have just purchased your BCAAs and will order a fat burner when I have finished my others. Thank you :) I will definately be a return customer. :D
Awesome! creamy and smooth taste
Great flavour and a smooth texture
normally a big fan of this product. have gotten it in various flavours. I think the white/choc raspberry is my favourite.
I recently got the "new formula" gourmet vanilla, and the texture is quite unpleasant. it's very thick and goopy, and I find myself having to choke it down.
I've had good experiences with the white choc/raspberry and the standard chocolate one. I found the orange choc nib to be quite weird, with the nibs getting stuck in my teeth. I remember getting the old vanilla as a sample a while back and I thought it was all right
Having had at least 2kg of both the old and new flavours in both Chocolate and Peanut Butter now, can definitely say I much prefer the old formula. New formula has too much sodium in it, and most of us don’t need extra sodium. But love the old formula in both Choc and PB, cheers NZ Protein!
New formula is better than the original by far, creamier and not grainy. I’ve tried most of the new formula flavours and like the double chocolate and the lemon, honey and turmeric ones the best, very yummy! Great job NZ Protein. Hope the new formula is here to stay....please!
Peanut butter flavor is next level! Love it
Nice flavour of salted caramel. Next to vanilla my second favourite.
I don't like the new formula, it has a strange taste and after-taste. I don't like sucralose as a product and would rather not consume it.
I love the old formula though!
Very impressed. I can't stand most pea protein due to the gritty, sandy texture. But this is creamy and easy to drink. It does have a tendency to get a bit foamy, but besides that it's leagues better than the old formulation. Please keep stocking this!
This is great - the new formula is much less gritty and my girlfriend loves the jelly tip and texture - she feels tastes like icecream and is much more willing to use a protein powder now because it isn't as gritty
I bought the new double choc trial formula as they were out of my usual double chocolate. Not quite as nice as the original, as i didn't quite like the aftertaste it had. Still no stomach cramps and feeling rubbish like normal whey does to me which is awesome.
Thick and delicious . NZProtein service is brilliant ordered and delivered within days
This is a review for the vanilla gourmet flavor with the new sweetener sucralose; For some reason the protein powder tastes bitter. This is probably due to the natural flavor of the pea protein coming through. Normally I purchase Hemp protein because it doesn't have the same taste profile.
Love the new formula!!!! So much creamier
Gourmet vanilla is my go to. I've been ordering for a while now and absolutely love it 👌
Love the new jellytip flavour, you guys nailed it!
I'm so happy with this pea protein, amazing quality, flavour and price. So good on its own just mixed with water, dissolves easily, or I use it as well to make smoothies, baking and cooking. It's surprising how versatile is compared to other source proteins.
A little gritty
Taste is alright, lovely with some fruits added to it!! Best choice to mix with whatever you want and make pancakes, smoothies, etc
Much nicer than other brands i have tried. Easy to drink!
Yeah bloody nice mate, cheers
Fantastic protein powder for vegetarians or anyone to have, high quality taste as well as mixes easily even in Almond milk. Delicious. Awesome delivery software with notification, we've never had issues with courier parcels and despatch is fast. Very happy to have found NZ Protein for certain.
Tastes Great, Mixes Easy. Perfect For Vegetarians, Vegans, Lactose Intolerant And GERD Sufferers As It Quickly Alkalises The Body No To Mention Great For Your Gut Bacteria And So Your Mental Health.
Lovely smooth and creamy consistency. No “gritty” or floury texture. A really nice formula and flavour that I’ll continue to purchase.
Tastes great and mixes well even in water. Also easily digestible
Love it!! Much better than the other one, smoother and tastes better, thumbs up guys!!
I have been using the new formula for the last couple of months. Compared to the previous version the new formula seems to be much thicker and has more of an instant pudding texture and taste (I buy the double chocolate flavour). I have adapted the ratio a bit and now use two flat scoops not heaped and find this to be a good consistency in my smoothies (heaped scoops made the consistency far too thick to drink). There is a definite taste difference with the new formula but I have become used to it quickly and will be buying again.
Awesome! Really good
Great protein and insanely fast delivery!
So gross, doesn't dissolve well at all! Going to really struggle to finish this one. Awesome service from Nz Protein though, got to me really quick! NZPROTEIN REPLY: try adding more water as pea uses more than that whey. And as a rule of thumb, water in the shaker first before powder should do it!
I’m happy with the nutritional value this particular protein offers! Low sodium, low saturated fat, plant based protein that tastes pretty good!
Great tasting and blends in very easy. Not "grity" at all some some pea proteins can be.
Great product. Mixes really easily, texture is pretty smooth compared with other pea protein powders I have tried.
Jelly tip flavour tastes just like the real thing.
I think I preferred the previous version as it seemed a little smoother.
Texture is great! Not grainy at all! Cinnamon chai flavour a tad too strong but otherwise great product and price :)
How does it compare to whey in shakes? The flavour is just as good, maybe better (I got jelly tip). The texture is worse (a bit thicker and grainier) but still much better than casein and my expectations. It mixes easily too. This is my new regular purchase.
Smoother than the previous recipe. Sucrose is a better flavor even if it is less natural than stevia.
Huge fan of the one protein. I have been shopping with you for almost 3 years and was super skeptic about the new formula but it is amazing!!!! 10/10 for the chocolate flavour. Mixes better than before and tastes better too.
Peanut butter is my favourite as it doesn’t contain any articulations flavours and tastes great!
Close second is the new lemon and turmeric. Really interesting flavour and mixes really well for use in baking and by itself. Love the price of these products too
Jaffa is yummy but banana is yummier.
Both taste like flavoured milk and has a nice consistency
The Jellytip is really nice says Mr 7.
Nice on it's own but really yummy with banana or frozen berries
Had my first Double Chocolate Pea Protein smoothie this morning & It was so enjoyable.
All the previous pea proteins I've tried have had an unpleasant after taste, but not this one!
NZ protein will be my go-to from now! Affordable too, which is an added bonus.
Just finished the new PB flavour and received the old PB flavour again I much prefer the old flavour, the new one is too salty and too sweet. I prefer the old chocolate flavour too. But either way the best value pea protein on the market, cheers!
The pea protein salted caramel flavour is the best thing that could have happened to this planet, for real.
5/5 - double chocolate is my favourite
Really enjoy the Double Chocolate in my oates every morning.
Great flavour and texture
Great, reliable product. Salted Caramel flavour is my favourite to date
I think the chocolate flavour is great! Nice taste and mixes easily. I added a banana to mine and it takes like a thick milkshake!
It has a stronger artificial taste than the regular one, but it’s sweeter which helps.
Been buying Choc and PB flavours for a couple of years now, love them both, love mixing them. Im indifferent with the new formula, definitely slightly different but not better nor worse. What I don't like is the significant increase in sodium, does it need to be so much higher? I dont think I (or most people) need the extra salt. Cheers.
Delcious pea protein! Smooth and creamy, awesome addition to the morning bullet! The taste of the sweetener is something I'm not used to so have offset with a dash of salt but most people will like it I'm sure....10/10 👌👍
Mixes really nice with almond milk. Quick delivery.
I did lots of research on vegetarian protein powder and decided to buy Pea and Hemp seed protein powder. Both are really good and comes with different health benefits.
I would prefer if both the products (Pea and Hemp seed) can be combined to ONE product.
Learn About The Health Benefits Of Organic Pea & Hemp Protein with Thomas DeLauer
Nice flavour, I use Almond Milk to mix and have on oats, quite thick but still ok
Tastes like peas. Not the best flavour compared to other pea proteins.
I have been buying pea protein for a while now. I recently purchased the new peanut butter formula. It is more pleasant to drink in comparison to the original formula. More creamy, less grainy and sweeter. I am happy with the new formula and prefer it to the original. Thanks.
I've had quite a few of the flavours (original and the new trial ones) - see below for review :)
Double Chocolate (original) - 7/10
Didn't have much of a chocolate taste and didnt blend as well as I would have liked
Double Chocolate (trial) - 8/10
Has more of a chocolate taste and blends better
Peanut butter (original) - 10/10
Great peanut butter taste and the perfect sweetness
Peanut butter (trial) - 9/10
The taste is still fantastic but this one is sweetened with Sucralose. I prefer the original one as it's sweetened with Stevia
Salted caramel - 9/10
Great taste and not overly sweet
Chai cinnamon- 9/10
A unique flavour but I tried it and enjoyed it. It has a sweet cinnamon taste
Unflavoured (original) - 5/10
If you're not used to unflavoured (and I wasn't), this won't taste good. Even when mixed with fruit in a smoothie, the bad taste is still apparent. It's better in a fruit smoothie with a sweetener
Orange choc nib - 10/10
I loved this flavour because it had a good chocolate taste (better than Double Chocolate) and had cacao nibs which added a nice crunch to the shake. Not much orange flavour (which was good for me). I think they don't stock it anymore but it was delicious
Maple syrup pancake - 4/10
It tastes just like maple syrup. I enjoy protein pancakes with sugar-free maple syrup so I thought I'd like this. But it's far too sweet and isn't something that's suitable to have everyday. I think they also stopped stocking this
Suggestions to NZ Protein - Strawberry flavour if possible? Maybe trial it out in sample sachets?
A good consistency and flavour pea protein. The peanut butter flavour nicely disguises the veges i mix in with it. I see this is a new trial mix, I can't say how it compares unless I had them side by side.
This is an amazing product - great flavour, super fast delivery, and friendly customer service. The vanilla flavour is my favourite!
Lovely flavour- our favourite infact! Goes great in smoothies or mixed in with coconut yoghurt, yumm!
Nice alternative to whey
We liked the taste but would prefer the natural stevia sugar replacement
The new lemon, honey and turmeric one is yucky.
The old formula double chocolate is hands down my favourite pea protein currently on the market. Will be sad to see this go
Peanut butter pea protein is tasteless, although double choc and caramel are the best ones
I'm not sure whether I like the peanut butter new trial formula? Unfortunately I can't taste the peanut butter taste very well...
Chai cinnamon is so delicious!
Prompt efficient delivery of excellent, modestly priced, new Pea Protein Product. The original was good, but this is better.
Great tasting and filling!!
after trying various other vegetable based protein shakes, I finally found one that I love.
I absolutely love this protein powder. Salted caramel pea protein, banana and ice pakes an awesome iced salted caramel drink.
Love your pea protein! Please retain the old formula with Stevia - I don't do Sucralose! Thanks! :)
Fast delivery and great product! Pea protein smoothies make breakfast so quick and easy in the morning. Chai is great with a bit of coffee added to make a dirty chai! Vanilla also really versatile and easy to add a bit of cocoa powder to it for chocolate. Really liked the Maple Syrup Pancake - hopefully it will come back! It's also great to add vanilla or maple protein powder to porridge for extra protein for multi-day tramps in the hills. Thanks NZProtein!
It’s amazing, smooth and delicious!
Please make some more products with it! This is the only protein I buy! None of the other brands are anywhere near as good.
At first, I have never had pea protein and this is my first time having pea protein.
I usually have whey isolate and tried several popular brands. The pea protein is totally different from the whey isolate. It is very thick compare to normal whey isolate and not very as smooth as milk(as described).
Secondly, it is about the sweet taste is quite different (probably it use a new sweeten). I cannot say it wired taste but it is not a taste we usually have.
Thirdly, regards the chocolate flavour, I wish it can be more stronger to cover the wired taste of the sweeten. It is not enough.
Lastly, it seems easy to stomach
Sits great in my stomach .
Taste is yum.
Since changing to a more vegetable based diet feel much better all that meat no good for me personally. two scoops a day to help meet total protein level for the day is working well.
Overall a great product and have been using it for about a year now and would recommend it to anyone.
Pea protein is great in my opinion, easy to drink and easy on the stomach. I use mine as a recovery drink and feel it works really well.
NZ protein provide a good range of flavours and their delivery is super fast and hassle free, I really rate them and this product.
Like the pea protein. Preferred the old mix and texture that came when blended in a shake. New mix is more sludgy once blended for me personally. Will still purchase but if had the choice will be getting the previous. Everything else is good for service.
Sorry - I didnt like the taste or the texture, it is also really thick.
I really liked the chocolate flavour, mixes well
Great website. Easy to surf thru it. My package came the same day. TOO Fast. Love my Pea Protein
I was so excited for peanut butter to be back in stock with it being one of the less sweet options, so it was disappointing that it didn't taste like peanut butter and was actually unpleasant to consume. Please bring the old recipe back.
I found the New Vanilla very pleasant to take. It mixed well, was more smooth, a nice refreshing flavor.
Far better than the older product.
How ever I will not be buying anymore as I discovered the product contains Sucralose as the sweetener,
This is not good for my body. Also the Purine content must be very high as I have had an attack of Gout (first one in over 3 years). NZPROTEIN REPLY: thanks for the feedback. We will offer a Stevia option in future and the previous pea
Not bad. I usually use it to make my protein cookie every morning with a coffee. A scoop of pea protein Powder 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. Mix together with a bit of hot water microwave and it taste like chocolate pudding. The texture works well with this protein. Been doing this for the past 3 years. Thanks Nz protein.
Tastes great, small amount of ingredients, no fillers/preservatives
Have tried a fair few flavors and they were all good. Just bought the new chocolate formula and will not buy the new one again. Super strong aftertaste.
Side Note: Will the lime flavour ever come back again? It was Delicious.
After constantly switching between different proteins and brands after becoming dairy-free, I have finally found the perfect protein powder. If you've had pea protein before you'll know it sucks compared to whey in taste, texture and after taste. However, the Chai Cinnamon flavour with the new formula is FREAKING AMAZING. By far the best Pea Protein I have ever had. It goes great with just water and is amazing with coffee. If you're struggling to choose a flavour and like Chat latte definitely go for this one.
I really like the new blend. Chocolate flavour is much better. Yet to try the others
New blend double chocolate flavour much better - more of a distinct chocolate taste, darker colour and a finer texture.
Looking forward to trying the other flavours.
Super fine protein powder, although doesn't really taste like vanilla but more like powdered lentils/peas. Not delicious but not super unpleasant either. It can easily be masked with a banana or something else. Overall definitely worth the price! Will buy again.
Had a scoop of the old formula on hand so did a side by side comparison.
The texture is a lot better, while it take more effort to mix it, it is much smoother than the other (that was probably my biggest complaint about the old formula).
As for the flavour, I buy unflavoured so can comment on the underlying flavour well. It definitely has a different, slightly stronger flavour. It's hard to describe, but it'd say it's a bit more vegetabley than the old one. I prefer the older flavour.
Colour wise it is a lot more yellow, but I don't really care about that side of things.
Overall I'm happy with the new formula since the texture is improved, and any change in flavour will probably be masked by what I add to the smoothie anyway.
Good taste and texture, love it in my morning oats with blueberries.
I have been waiting for the Peanut Butter flavour to come back into stock for months!! I have only tried the new pea protein once since I got it finally last week but so far the flavour is not as good as the original, I am a little bit disappointed but I'll give it another go to see if it grows on me.
Absolutely delicious and mixes really well. Keeps me going too!
Love this product
Great products and very easy on the stomach!!!!
Great price fast delivery
Its great i like the flavours i usually get salted caramel and double chocolate. I like that it doesnt make you feel bloated like whey does and you cant taste that distinctive protein after taste that normal whey proteins can create.
My go to protein powder, taste and texture is much better than other pea proteins I have tried in the past
Top flavor, best blended with lots of ice!! Perfect summer drink!
I love, love this product - tastes great, mixes easily, price is excellent, low in sodium - without exception the pea proteins I have used previously have been too high in sodium - I have tried just about all of them. I even make protein smoothies for my Mum who is 88 and she loves them and has to keep sodium intake low - Thanks NZ Protein for great products!!
I really hoped to love this product, with all the good reviews too - unfortunately I find this has the distinct pea after taste that I find very distracting and unenjoyable. I do appreciate this IS a pea protein however have not come across this in other pea products from other brands. Sadly would not buy again.
Delicious and good texture
Great protein, great price, very low in sodium and saturated fat!!! Good choice if you?re try to keep cholesterol under control and body fat. Kia Ora
I love this pea protein, the whey protein upset my stomach but the pea protein is awesome, great taste as well.
Love the caramel flavour but not the saltiness. Please bring out a normal caramel flavour and you?ll have me hooked.
Best flavor by far!!!
Superb as always, my go to pea protein! Mixes so well and always tastes so good!
Flavors nice, doesnt mix the best in a shaker but fine in the blender. I would still buy it again because of the price and flavor. NZPROTEIN REPLY: water first, then powder. And don't use a mixing ball/agitator.
The vanilla was quite nice, but the salted caramel was too salty for my taste in a shake, but I'm using it in baking where its fine.
Only protein I buy. Maple pancake flavour is SO good!
The salted caramel is amazing!! Great price and surprised how quickly it arrived to the South island. Will be ordering again!
Feels lighter on the stomach than traditional whey protein, especially for dudes with A1 protein intolerance like myself.
Taste isn't as good as whey though not a deal breaker.
fast delivery to the south Island good price great product.
Great recovery results when I mix it with the whey isolate
Excellent. I'd highly recommend the orange chocolate, salted caramel and the white chocolate raspberry. I mix it with Blue Diamond chocolate-flavoured almond milk. Best tasting pea protein I've ever had, and no artificial sweeteners either.
I find the protein to be great. I love the fact it is not too sweet. I use the double choc everyday in my porridge.
The order arrived quickly.
Great value for money.
Definitely the best plant based protein I've tried, would highly recommend
Salted Caramel - Best tasting pea protein in the market
my fave protein the orange and choc nib is to die for. MAkes smoothy nice and thick plus it also tastes good on its own with water after workout.
Always love this pea protein! It?s super affordable and it?s yum!
As a vegetarian i need 58grams of protein eavh day and i would never achieve this without for fabulous and delicious product and would not feel ss great as I do
Love the product!
As a vegetarian, and in my 60s I need to get 58 grams of protein per day, without my yummy protein drink this is very difficult, so truly I can say, its a life saver.
Best flavor!!! 10/10
Mixes easy. Great taste.
Good quality, good price
Tastes fine, Super quick delivery
First time trying the maple syrup pancake flavor, still prefer the chai cinnamon and salted caramel over this one.
Great value. fast delivery
Good, easy, a bit too much Stevia taste. Less sweet would be good, but I might just get the plain one next time. Mixes easily.
As we are trying to use less plastic, it might be worth offering a paper or compostable bag option that can be used with a re-fillable tin.
Veganism is growing fast among the 16 to 26yr old generation. My daughter is and many of her friends are vegan. As it's an environmentally motivated thing, plastic free packaging would be a strong selling point with the pea protein. NZPROTEIN REPLY: paper doesn't provide an oxygen barrier. The packs are foil based.
The worst tasting protein I?ve tried. I definitely won?t buy it again. NZPROTEIN REPLY: pea protein is different to the milk based proteins you may be used to, and can be acquired. We recommend the salted caramel flavour.
Love the chai flavour
Tastes good, cheap and fast delivery. great service
Goods received 2nd day after ordering. Delicous taste. Hoping me it will help with my recent chrohns diagnosis, previously I was using whey protein.
Very yummy! Would definitely recommend
Taste is good and yes it is a bit thicker than whey but all in all a good product.
As a shake it can be a little grainy but it does mix easy. The gourmet vanilla flavour is OK, however prefer the whey vanilla flavour - but this is a good alternative to whey based protein powders.
Excellent product and fast delivery.
Maple Syrup flavour: best I've tried so far! Big fan of pea protein, I usually get either the Salted Caramel or the White Choc Raspberry. I think it's an acquired taste and might not be for everyone. I personally love it, it's light on my tummy and doesn't make me bloated (unfortunately whey does). Very pleased!
Great taste. Fantastic value. Thanks.
Average to bad taste, Mixes badly, Dosent bloat stomach which is good. Makes you feel satiated.
Good product at a reasonable price, and very prompt service.
Love the product! And always a speedy delivery, even when I was living in Australia
I have loved all other NZ protein products I have purchased but unfortunately I really did not vanilla pea protein- taste or texture. Much prefer there whey products.
Great taste and great value!
Delicious, mixes well, good nutritional profile, better than whey in my opinion
Amazing, I?m so obsessed with this protein. The best tasting out of all the pea proteins on the market. Mixes with oats so perfect and thick consistency
NZ Protein has amazing customer service & speedy deliver.
However this product wasn't for me (luckily only got samples)
I didnt enjoy the taste or thickness of the product at all, however I can tell that this product is a great alternative to Whey or for anyone on a plant based diet. Would just take a bit to get used to.
Salted Caramel would be the best flavour out of the bunch :)
Great tasting a reasonabley easy mixing in a shaker.
Hands down my favourite pea protein powder I?ve ever tried. Mixes well and the flavour tastes pretty good. Chocolate or the Maple syrup pancake are my go to flavours.
great service, very prompt delivery
I've been using this protein for a few years and its really good on my gutt - no digestion or irritability issues. Good range of flavors too. Raspberry and white chocolate is my favorite
Best pea protein around.
Super awesome pea protein! All great flavours and really fast delivery. My favourite product!
Great powder, good taste, can be used for anything. Awesome service too.
Fast delivery. Great tasting powder.
Great product. Value for money
Sadly the taste is way off and couldn?t finish a single serving. Back to whey protein it is
Awesome Dairy free alternative!
The price is great, consistency good, have only ever ordered the salted caramel flavour, but goes great with banana for a good dose of morning protein.
Great product, great taste.
My favourite pea protein by far, makes any smoothie nice and creamy. Gourmet Vanilla is delicious!
Great product and service - my order didn't arrive due to an issue with the courier pst service, and the NZProtein team sorted a replacement really quickly.
Very happy with this product. Repeat buyer.
Best value vegan protein around. The taste isn?t too sweet and has awesome macros
Value for money
Excellent product and great taste. I mix it as a smoothie with almond milk, half an avacado and a banana - delicious!!
Great and efficient service. Love the product as well!
Tastes great, easy mix. Delivery was really quick.
I wish I didn't have to write such a review. Bought a 1kg of the pea isolate plus some samples.... wish I'd just bought samples to begin with, as this is quite possibly one of the worst proteins I've tasted. Probably not the worst, but I definitely won't be buying again. Very strange bitter taste that comes through, and NZ Protein doesn't offer returns.. hopefully banana will cover up that god awful taste.
Love it. Fantastic flavour (I am buying gourmet vanilla), easy to mix with anything, makes creamy smoothie and super easy to digest. I am plant based and hardly ever eat meat so it?s an important part of my diet and makes sure I consume enough protein per day.
Very reasonable price, fast delivery
The Protein powder is always consistent and tastes great.
Mixes well, great taste profile (best of all the many plant based protein powders I?ve tried) and provides great recovery post hard training sessions.
Salted caramel oh my god Great product easy mix
I?ve tried a lot of plant based protein powders and yet I keep coming back to this one. The chocolate is my favourite flavour by far. It mixes pretty well for being a plant based protein and tastes delicious. Would love to see a coffee flavoured pea protein come through some day.
I like pea protein just not a fan of the chai flavour, too sweet
Well, it does what it is supposed to do which is provide protein for muscle growth with no inflammatory markers. I noticed that I started fat burning straight away (within 1 hour aswell). It is best, because of its consistency, made into an iced Mochachino. (ie water, ice, choc pea protein and espresso coffee). Pea protein is also cost effective (ie make 1 x 31 gram drink at 250 ml split into 2 drinks for the day.) Important for burning fats to destroy genetic muscle groups that are not specifically your genetic muscle groups ie muscle groups that are not specifically your muscle groups - too many asian gene pools in the population. Overall, this product tastes pretty awful but is worth it because it does what it is supposed to do. 5 stars.
Best vegan protein I came across so far! Super delicious especially when mixed with cacao and almond butter in a smoothie!
By far the best alt to whey,
An excellent pea protein brand and normally I really like the flavours. However I will not be reordering White Chocolate and Raspberry as it is too sweet and artificial for me.
Really good product. Vanilla is my fav flavour, versatile and can add cocoa or fruit depending on what you feel like
Amazing! Finally found one that tastes good
Cost effective, tastes good.
Fast delivery. Good costs. Mixes well with baking
The flavour wasn?t that good and it was a bit gritty.
High quality products and fast delivery are the standards of this company. One serving of this reasonably priced pea protein isolate is part of my everyday breakfast (in an oat bowl with fruits and nuts. Yummy!) I prefer peanut butter flavour for breakfast; chocolate, vanilla or caramel in deserts... A simple chocolate mousse I enjoy as a treat: 1 banana, 1 serving of flavored nzprotein pea isolate, 1 table spoon of cocoa, half a cup of almond milk (add starch or flour of choice if looks too watery). I cool it in fridge for an hour or two, and top with frozen berries while eating. Delicious and low calories :)
Love this protein powder. So cheap compared to others out there and delivery is SUPER FAST. Not a huge fan of the Double Choc flavour in the pea protein range, sort of gritty and weird. Salted Caramel is THE BOMB and shout out to Peanut Butter and Vanilla too. Love it, thanks NZ Protein.
Great packaging. Glad to see it's not in a huge hard plastic container. Great product. Will definitely buy again. Also amazing service- free delivery and arrived the next day!
I would recommend the unflavoured pea protein for putting in recipes like smoothies or oats to make the protein content higher. Great price for a 1 kg and fast delivery. Would recommend NZ Protein
Seems to be the best brand for my stomach, some others I have had reaction to.
This time around ordered the chai cinnamon flavour by mistake. Definitely not bad, but imo the best flavour is white choc raspberry, followed by double chocolate.
Love the Salted caramel and Chai Cinnamon flavor.
Average. Wouldn?t recommend or buy again
I decided to try this as an alternative because whey bloats me. This is the first non-whey protein I have tasted and I am very impressed. The taste is excellent, not too sweet and is not heavily flavoured. It also blends very well as it is a finely-processed powder. I will now purchase this instead of whey.
Pretty good. As always, super quick delivery. The powder mixes well, tastes nice and is everything you need it to be. My only complaint is that I think it's a little too sweet. Otherwise this powder is superb. A great substitute for whey powders.
Great stuff, and excellent service
Not too keen on the flavour (this one was unflavoured).
This is the best non-dairy protein powder (I?ve tried them all!). Huge protein per serve, smooth texture and blends quickly. Flavour works well with other ingredients, doesn?t overpower a smoothie and tastes good on its own. Have in the past for gaining muscle & recently to support long distance running. Highly recommend.
Have been using pea protein for years, Love this brand and the ease of ordering.
first time trying plant based protein, double chocolate was all good
The peanut butter pea protein has been my go to for the past few months - I am obsessed! It?s not too sweet or overpowering which is perfect for me. I recommend this protein to everyone. The shipping is insanely fast too. Thanks heaps NZ protein. I?ll be a life long customer for sure
Very nice great taste
Great products and love the hemp protein mixed in with the pea protein for a shake. Super fast delivery everytime and seamless transaction etc
My only concern was all the bags the protein comes in and is it recyclable
Easy to mix, easy to drink and easy on the stomach, totally recommend...oh and good price!
Always great products, love this!
Quality, modestly priced Pea Protein Isolate, always arrives promptly. I did try the Hemp Seed Protein Isolate due to it's superior quality, but not as smooth as Pea Protein.
Love pea protein to give my morning smoothie the protein I need
Love pea protein, the texture did take a bit getting use to but the flavor is amazing just finished the salted caramel which was absolutely delicious and just ordered the peanut butter flavor. Best protein powder I have ever bought.
I got the Peanut Butter flavoured for a change and its pretty good. I get all my protein powders from NZ Protein, wouldn't shop anywhere else. They offer good value for money and quick delivery, not to mention very good customer service when I've needed it.
Great taste, super fast delivery, amazing value!
love the gourmet vanilla smells delish! also taste good in smoothie bows and on its own. I always loved the salted caramel but this is just as good.
Great vegan product, great price and lots of flavour selections.
Mixes easily. Not gritty, nice mild flavour compared to other pea proteins I've tried (more expensive).
Nice as a shake at the gym, just a quick shake up and no lumps EVER if used with a shaker ball (put water in first) and nice with my gluten free rice flakes (porridge) and soaked chia seeds.
Approved by my nutritionist to use in my nutrition plan.
The gourmet vanilla flavour is better than ever - 5/5 :) happy customer
Such good value for money, and it tastes fine! I don?t know why you?d waste all your money on other expensive protein powders when you can buy one just as good for less than half this price here!
Love the salted caramel flavor. Great value for money and always fast shipping. Only wish it came in a bigger size!
Good alternative to animal based protein.
Good product for a great price. Highly recommend
Pretty good for the money!!
The taste is great and not too sweet. Dissolves easily and is great value for money.
Excellent product, great quality and taste.
Thank you for always delivering promptly. 100 percent reliable service. I love your products and will continue to purchase them as I am very happy with the professional service you provide.
A vegan getting into working out. Perfect for getting intake and gains
Good taste, mixes well. It does has a distinct taste compared to dairy based proteins. Not a bad thing, just different and you get used to it. Much like any protein mixes and bars.
The vanilla is the best flavour in my opinion, mixes super well and is my go to non-whey protein.
The vanilla tastes a bit too close to whey protein for my liking compared to other pea proteins. The chocolate flavor is great though!
Great taste and easy to blend
I couldnt really taste the flavors.
Great product for the price.
Regular whey protein never agreed with my stomach but I continued to have it as it was convenient and delicious. I finally decided to switch to a plant protein and pea protein seemed better to me than other types. NZ Protein was priced well and had great macros similar to regular whey protein powders so I tried it and I enjoyed it! I got Double Choc and Peanut Butter. The texture was a little gritty and thicker than whey protein but you get used to it quickly. They're sweet but not too sweet which is good. Most importantly, the protein doesn't upset my stomach! Overall, it's a great protein powder which I'd recommend to someone who can't stomach regular whey protein.
The vanilla flavour is delicious in smoothies and these guys have an incredibly fast and reliable shipping process. Highly recommend :-)
Best protein in NZ. Double chocolate is the one
Placed order late Friday night was here Tuesday morning and I live in Blenheim. Protein tastes great. Great service
Really liked the price. Fast shipping. Wasn't a huge fan of the raspberry white chocolate powder. The vanilla and slated caramel flavours are white good.
Great Tasting, blends up smooth and not all chalky. Id give a 5 if the packaging was recyclable.
Suuuch good value! Super tasty and smooth.. love mixing it in with my oats at breakfast! Will defintely be a re purhase :)
Easily digesting plant protein ..best one I've tried
Love it, fast delivery!
Very reliable product and great quality
Goes realy good with my diet plan
Great flavour, can be a bit grainy but I knew that pea protein was like that in general, prior to purchasing.
Good protein content
I have used the unflavored, salted caramel, white chocolate raspberry and peanut butter types; and my favorite is salted caramel so far. The plain one has a strong taste by itself; yet it mixes well with other stuff in breakfast bowls or in baking, and becomes more neutral.
I ordered in two separate batches and both my orders arrived the following day. I love having a reasonably priced plant based protein powder option in NZ. The quality is the same as other highly priced ones in the market.
I bought the raspberry and white chocolate flavour. It is so delicious, doesn't have a strong raspberry flavour but tastes exactly like the flavour of a raspberry and white choc muffin in my opinion. Great in porridge and smoothies. Shipping is super fast and this is the best value for money whilst still being great tasting protein that you will find! You won't regret buying some, next time I will definitely get two flavours.
purchased the double choc pea protein and wish I liked the taste but it is undrinkable, texture and taste. Love other stuff from nzprotien, but this was for me was a disgusting flavour.
NZPROTEIN COMMENT: due to the nature of pea protein we recommend trying the salted caramel and some of the other flavours as pea can have an acquired taste.
Hey team at NZProtein, thank you for bringing such affordable and yum plant based protein to the market! I have been using your pea protein for the last 3-ish years pretty much every day and love how well it mixes with a cup of oats and handful of blueberries for a quick morning breakkie, and do not miss the extraordinary cost of other plant based protein brands! My friends and family are pretty much all sold on your product, and are happy to be supporting an innovative NZ brand (love the mousse/granola!). Hope to be buying off you for many years to come! Cheers, Barney.
Possibly the best value protein powder on the NZ market. Blends well, it isn't chalky, taste great.
I highly recommend the peanut butter, and white chocolate raspberry flavour, these are my favourites! Personally I find the cinnamon chai flavour way too strong for my liking, and I found the lime flavour quite bland. Can't wait to see what other flavours you release in the future!!
I have been taking pea protein for a couple of months now and have found it to be a fantastic alternative to whey, I had to stop taking whey as it was making me bloated and gassy.
I only wishNZProtein had a banana flavour for the pea protein, fingers crossed it gets added in the future.
I got the gourmet vanilla & I love it! cant even tell its a pea protein! I did try the whey protein as well and found the texture of this brand a lot more powdery than im used to but it didnt take long to start enjoying it and now i will never go back! the recovery is amazing and the price is an added bonus. I do wish I found them sooner
I always order unflavoured whey isolate and have been pretty happy with it. This time, I decided to try unflavoured pea isolate. OMG, it tastes so gross :(( no matter how much fruit, almond milk, coconut water, ALS and even honey I add to the smoothie, the powder taste is still very strong and unpleasant.
NZPROTEIN UPDATE: Due to the nature of pea protein we recommend a flavoured version, and sample packs are available to try.
I have been buying this product weekly for about a year now, I wish I had discovered it sooner. Consistent product that is substantially cheaper than its competitors and just as good, if not better. Delivery times are great too, I order at 7am before work, and it is usually delivered by 4pm that same day, or the next morning at the latest. Recommend the Double Chocolate flavour, goes great with smoothies and is easy to down after a workout.
First off I was so impressed with delivery. I don't think I have ever received a parcel so fast! Ordered late afternoon and I had it the next day.
I was told by my nutritionist to switch from whey to pea protein so I ordered the vanilla and salted caramel.
I couldn't do the salted caramel at first as i wasn't used to the pea protein, so if you're transitioning I definitely recommend the vanilla flavour first. Now that I've been having this protein for a month, I absolutely love both flavors in my morning and post workout smoothies!
Just wanted to say how impressed I am with the turn around time from order to delivery. I have ordered 3 times now (late afternoon) and have received the item the next day - including an item received on Saturday. Thank you for the excellent service.
I've tried all the flavours, and double chocolate is definitely the best, in my opinion.
This pea protein has worked out really well for me. I usually don't have time to eat right after a workout, so it's helpful to have this so I don't lose my gainz.
Chai Cinnamon is a great flavour - best pea protein I've had.
I'm in love with the new Peanut Butter Pea Isolate it tastes as you'd want and expect like peanuts and it's satisfying cuts cravings instantly. This product is 5 Star
The Salted Caramel flavour is the bomb! So DELICIOUS and moreish. Have to agree with others about the Vanilla being a little grainy - popping some strawberries in really remedies that though. Awesome and quick delivery, great prices. Will be buying again!
Great product but piss poor that you are out of stock, consistency is the key for training and having the right protein is the vital, will have to look else where for a backup supply.
NZProtein's reply: Sorry but all the latest pea we got in for the choc and caramel from the importer was faulty and to make it worse there is none left in the country. We are flying an emergency batch in, due within the week. It's the fault of our suppliers, not us.
Yes we could have used an alternate supply but none are as pleasant tasting. Fortunately there are still some flavours still available in stock.
Such good value for money, so much cheaper than other pea proteins I've tried. Double choc is not as chocolatey as I would like so I always add a bit of cocoa powder. I got a sample of salted caramel and it is soooo good, a lot smoother than double choc. Highly recommend! I will be buying salted caramel next time.
Find these protein powders by far the best vegan ones ! The new flavours cinnamon and salted caramel are so so nice , I actually look forward to my protein shake whereas I have previously dreaded having to take it ! Would recommend mixing it in with yoghurt or icecream as it?s a reatbway to add flavour and taste to a flavourless aka vanilla flavoured product !! Really love your delivery times and your excellent customer service , I had a problem with delivery and they were so happy to accomodate and help me to get my protein ASAP
Powdery finish takes some getting used to after using whey but it's all good! Found the vanilla a bit too sweet even in a smoothie so am trying the natural unflavoured this time.
I always recommend NZ protein for anything as they are cost effective, fast and local. Love your work guys x
Super fast service (received overnight), no fillers or crap ingredients (only 4 ingredients, all of which I recognise and understand), the Double Chocolate tastes as good or better than all the other vegan chocolate protein powders I've tried (and I've tried lots), super good value ($1 per serving, compared with up to $3 per serving for other brands), and support a NZ made product. What's not to like about this?? Great product NZ Protein, I will be buying this again, thanks!!
I never write reviews, but wanted to let people know how great NZprotein really is. The shipping times are unbeatable, by far the quickest - most onto it supplement company I have dealt with in NZ.
Have tried all the flavours now, Salted Caramel is by far the best.
Hope to see more flavours in the pea isolate in the future!
Salted Caramel is delicious and doesn't upset my tummy :)
Really happy with this product! I ordered Salted Caramel and Vanilla. Both are delicious. Vanilla is perfect for adding to fruit and veg smoothies, whereas Salted Caramel is great on it's own. Will definitely buy both again. The ingredients are good, and the price is right! Thanks NZProtein!
I was reluctant to believe that a pea protein could taste good, given my previous gag-worthy experiences, but this product is AMAZING. My cousin recommended it and I reckon I owe him a training-friendly beer! Salted caramel is so yummy; I can?t wait to try the other flavours too. Totally impressed with the product and the super quick delivery. Awesome!
Great product! Easy on stomach and Salted Caramel tastes good (as compared to Choc & Vanilla). Great alternative if you do not want to feel bloated.
The best pea protein money can buy. Great flavours and fantastic texture. The new Salted Caramel is my favourite for sure!
Great price, great flavor. Has a very slight chalky texture/taste but otherwise besides that its fine. I prefer it over whey protein and I enjoy all three flavors (vanilla, chocolate and salted caramel).
For a pea protein it really mixes well with water and tastes good. Every other pea protein I have had clumps and tastes like chalk. Highly recommend, especially the salted caramel - yummy!!!
The new salted caramel flavour is delicious!! Good stuff.
I found the double chocolate almost the same in flavour is the vanilla. Still good but could definitely use more cocoa. I added some myself.
Considered a cookies and cream flavour? Or peanut butter?
Pea protein has an "earthy" taste and the chocolate flavour isn't great (as people have said the vanilla is better), but I'm still giving this a 5-STAR rating because A: It's vegan friendly! B: It's great value for money. C: I don't get bloat from it. D: They use Stevia instead of nasty artificial sweeteners. E: Buying this means you're not supporting the dairy industry which personally means a lot to me.
Also if you make smoothies like I do, which involves a whole lot of other things like bananas, blueberries, leafy greens, crushed chia seeds (etc) then you can barely taste the chocolate flavour anyway. But next time I order I'm going to try unflavoured as I don't think I need flavouring anyway...
I have seen decent results from this product although I feel deceived by the reviews about how good the flavour is. I bought the chocolate flavour and it is the most disgusting thing I have ever tasted.
***COMMENT FROM NZPROTEIN: Sorry to hear that you didn't like the chocolate flavour. Pea protein can take a little bit to get used to, especially if you've been having dairy proteins before. We suggest trying the vanilla or the salted caramel as we feel that these work well with the pea isolate***
My order was delivered this morning. Awesome service. The caramel flavour is SO good. Thanks so much !
I've been buying this product for just over a year now. It's a great dairy alternative and definitely very affordable with super fast delivery. I usually buy 1kg of Vanilla which is delicious. This week I ordered a sample of the salted caramel and OMG it is to die for. Now I'm patiently waiting for the 1kg bags of it to be in stock...Thanks NZProtein :)
Great service, super fast delivery. Only got samples of different flavours, but will definitely buy more! The chocolate one is my favorite so far. Keep it up team!
After switching from a very similar, popular, & significantly pricier product, I've been using this pea protein (both vanilla & choc) for over a year now & I love it - tastes great, versatile, & fantastic value! Plus, the service/delivery is second to none. Please consider adding a strawberry version to the lineup :)
Excellent product , I have the chocolate flavour and it tastes good! A problem I've found before is powder not tasting good but this one I loved ! Delivery time was so quick ! 20 mins after ordering I got an email to say it was ready to be dispatched ! Very happy with the service and product and very good price too !
Awesome protein. I've had both the vanilla and chocolate and to be honest I think vanilla definitely has more flavour. A couple of things I've found really hard with pea protein is; a) finding one that doesn't leave a texture in your mouth like you've eaten a heap of dried peas/flour & b) finding one that isn't an absolute overkill on the stevia. NZ pea protein doesn't have either faults that I've found in every single other pea protein. If anything the chocolate only lacks a bit of flavour. Mixes easily and great in smoothies. For the price it is I would expect much less but this stuff is value for money. Don't hesistate to try it!
Very happy with the customer service! I ordered the Double Chocolate flavour by accident, so I sent a quick email asking for the Gourmet Vanilla option instead, and it was taken care of without any hassles. Reading some of the other reviews, the taste seems to be a bit subjective, but I will say that after using a non flavoured rice protein, from another brand for the past few months, (tasted revolting!) switching to this was like a dream! Personally I think it tastes great.
Hey guys, thanks so much for the excellent quick service in getting us the pea protein, the gourmet vanilla tastes great too!
I am so amazed there is 5 star comments. I love your chocolate mousse and regular whey double choc but i brought this because what I wanted wasn't in stock and I am soooo disappointed. I wish I just waited now to be honest, the double choc flavour of this is absolutely foul. I don't want to waste it either so now I'n stuck with it until I give in and buy regular Double choc isolate whey. REGRETS :(
The Natural Pea Isolate is a really premium product! Great taste, mixes easily, very affordable and arrived on my doorstep within 2 days of ordering. Will definitely shop again
I love this product. I have recently become dairy free and NZ Protein have everything sorted.
The product is tasty, cheap and the service is fantastic. Cheers guys keep up the fab work
this stuff tastes really good and is excellent to use in baking!
Best pea protein I've ever had! Excellently priced and completely delicious. Always great shipping times and great communication from NZ PROTEIN.
I am not in agreement with most of the reviews here for this product. I have been using the vanilla flavoured pea isolate in my morning smoothie for a couple of weeks now and I find it just awful. I blend it well in my blender with banana, berries and soy or almond milk, but it is still grainy and I find the flavour cardboardy and sickly. I have reduced the amount I use in each 2 glass shake to a scant tablespoonful to try to at least use up the 1kg packet I have, but it still permeates the whole smoothie and I think I am done with it now as I am sick of it ruining the taste of the other lovely ingredients in my smoothie; I could barely even drink this mornings shake. Very disappointed in my purchase of this product.
Fantastic product and even better service.
Blends well and is such a good price! Will definitely be ordering again.
Not only is the product always top notch but the service is even better. I generally get the product the next day. Amazing service even when I order on the weekend. Highly, highly recommend
Fast delivery and tastes great.
The only fault I find, is it does not blend well and feels grainy when drinking.
Fast replies and shipping, thanks team.
I am dairy intolerant and I have tried just about all the dairy free options for protein over the last few years. I gave this a try 6 months ago and I love it. Great value, mixes really well just in a shaker, and is also delicious. This is now the only protein powder I use.
A friend recommended this to me. I had been using another brand which was nearly twice the price but I prefer this one because it has a smoother consistency and tastes better!
Got an email reply back at 11pm and had the item delivered to me the next day. Great service!
I've only tried the natural flavour. Recommend for those people looking for a nutritious alternative protein. Delivery was fast.. Overall - excellent.
I love this protein! Really affordable! Have order lemon/lime, chocolate and now waiting for vanilla to arrive. Easy to drink and keeps me full! I notice if I do not drink this in the morning I am hungry all day. Great product :)
I purchased 6kg of pea protein isolate, 3kg unflavoured and 1kg each of vanilla, chocolate and lemon/lime. I liked vanilla and chocolate for shakes. The unflavoured is good for making protein pancakes and other goodies. The service from NZProtein is prompt, professional and friendly. I initially ordered rice protein but there was none left, so after a couple of emails we sorted my order to be just pea protein. It turns out my idea for combining pea and rice powders is unnecessary. The pea protein is high quality and suits me fine. I recommend NZ Protein to anyone looking for good product, good service and good value.
ordered on the Monday and arrived on the Tuesday, just how I like it. And its YUMMY.
Ordered on a Sunday and received an email same day that it was packed and ready to ship first thing Monday. Awesome.
Pea protein is an excellent product. This company delivers great customer service and is always prompt at delivery.
Had always used clean lean protein but someone told me about this. I tried the vanilla and it tastes better and is much cheaper, 5 stars from me. Recommended highly. Nick
Best tasting pea protein iv ever had. And pea protein is one of the best proteins there is. No toxic animals products is a start to the advantge of pea protein
The Lime pea protein was the BEST pea protein I have ever tried. I LOVE chocolate (so please make one!!!) haha so, I was a bit scared of buying a lime flavour, but it was AMAZING!! It tastes sooo much better than any other I have tried (and I have tried several now) Its like a lime milkshake, without the bad side effects. I strongly encourage anyone considering this to try it and you will fall in love - I love it and am ordering more!! Well Done :) Great product? (Ashlee)
I found this to taste best in water, it took a drink or two but I really like it now. keep up the good work guys!
Absolutely Delish, very happy with this product. Have used another similar protein, and I have to say prefer this product over the previous...NZ Protein will be our preferred supplier.Thank you Hine Lum
I recommend buying the sample first. I bought the gourmet vanilla flavour and although it smells amazing, the taste for me is almost sickening. I've never had a stevia-sweetened product before however. The last pea protein I had only contained vanilla for the flavouring, and in my opinion worked a lot better than this. However, for half the price of the other pea protein options in New Zealand it's worth a try.
Pretty good and the best pea I've found, slightly grainy but to be expected that and adding more water helps. Less bitter than others I've had, and priced better.
Really cheap, tastes fine, recommended A+ !
Had been using another brands and paying $80 for 1kg, this is under half of that and I like the taste of this one a bit more as well. Recommended to everyone
Fantastic value and great product . Good for all those protein baking recipes
Real fast delivery and real good product without the bloat that whey gives me
This is wayyy cheaper than other pea protein
Tried some of this as a healthier option. Had the unflavoured and it doesn't taste great, but I tried rice before and it's much better than rice
