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
