Golden Pea Protein

Pea protein isolate is a plant protein with an excellent amino acid profile. It's made from premium-quality natural golden peas grown in Canada which have been dried and ground, then mixed with water to remove the fibre and starch components.

It's then ground and dried again to produce a product which is very high in protein, low in fat, easily digestible, and non-acidic. Low heat isolation is used to maximise bioavailability.

Pea protein is vegan and GMO free. It's also naturally free of dairy, gluten, soy, and other allergens*.

It mixes easily in a handshaker or blender, and also works well in recipes as it doesn't tend to dry out when baked like some other protein powders can. It can be used to make cookies, bars, pancakes, balls, muffins, and more. Our recipes page has some tasty ideas.

Best Pea Protein

Newer generation pea protein isolates are better than before because they have a complete amino acid profile. This product contains all 21 amino acids and is a rich source of branched chain amino acids.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and muscle tissue. Proteins are an essential part of the diet as they help the body to repair cells and make new ones, so are often referred to as the building blocks of life. Because pea protein has a complete profile with high levels of BCAAs it can help the body to recover and build muscle more efficiently.

The best pea proteins are processed without adding copious amounts of sodium to the formula in the manufacture of it. Our product has low sodium - only 53mg per serve or 168mg per 100g on average (unflavoured).

Our product is also far more cost effective than some other pea protein products on the market which go through 'middle-men' and retail into stores.

Clean Lean Protein

Pea protein is considered a clean lean product not only because it's high in protein and low in fat without the allergens, but it's more environmentally friendly - pea crops even benefit soil!

Peas belong to the 'nitrogen fixing' category of crops, meaning they provide an abundant and sustainable source of nitrogen into the soil.

Peas contain bacteria called rhizobia in their root systems which is utilised by crops to convert nitrogen gas from the air into more usable forms for the plant. After the plant dies the nitrogen is released into the soil. That nitrogen assists other plants to grow without the need for added fertiliser. This environmentally friendly aspect of pea production adds to its many benefits.

Benefits of Pea Protein

Pea makes a great alternative to whey and has many benefits:

  • Pea is vegan, hypoallergenic, and alkaline. Whey is not.
  • Whey can cause some people to get bloating and upset stomachs, whereas pea is easily digestible.
  • Plants proteins are slower digesting than animal sources so can make you feel full for longer and enable more prolonged absorption. This study has shown that slower digesting proteins can be more beneficial for long term muscle growth due to the way the body uses the amino acids.
  • Pea may also help to lower blood pressure and with kidney disease. "In people with high blood pressure [it] could potentially delay or prevent the onset of kidney damage." Source.
  • Pea contains minerals including iron, phosphorus, calcium, zinc, potassium and magnesium that can benefit your health.
  • Pea may help to improve glycemic control and balance blood sugar levels when paired with other foods.

loose pea powder


Pea, being plant based, is a slower digesting protein powder than general animal types. In saying that, the digestibility rate is high with 88% of the protein easily digestible.

The better a protein is digested, the more efficiently it can be used by the body. The digestibility of any given protein is related to the concentrations of its amino acids. The Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is a rating that determines the bioavailibility of a protein. The maximum score is 1.0. This study gives pea a PDAAS score of 0.64. This is greater than lentils and green peas but equal or slightly less than some beans.

Good for Weight Loss

High protein diets can help people to lose weight and keep it off as consuming protein can help increase metabolism, reduce appetite, and help control blood sugar levels.

Pea protein may assist with sugar cravings and can make you feel full for longer and enable more prolonged absorption.

Taste and Mixing

This has a mild taste which may take some adjustment if you've never had pea before. Of course, flavoured varieties are available too. The texture has a very slight grainy-ness to it but it's easily palatable. It blends easily into other foods and with other flavours.

It's formulated to mix with water, but other liquids (such as almond milk and yoghurt) can be used. It mixes thicker than whey and more liquid should be added.

Pea Isolate mixes easily in a handshaker or with a spoon but it's always good practice to add liquid before the powder. Our Fill n Go Funnels make this easy.

Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-2 servings daily at breakfast, between meals, post workout, or before bed.

Side Effects

Pea allergies are uncommon. Those with allergies to pea should avoid this product.

There is a misconception that antinutrients can cause pea protein to be difficult to digest and not absorb well. Antinutrients are compounds that can interfere and prevent absorption of nutrients such as proteins and minerals. This is not the case. Though antinutrients are naturally present in peas, they're eliminated through the manufacture and extraction process.

For this same reason, pea protein is unlikely to cause bloating.

Pea vs Whey Protein

Now that we know all the benefits of pea protein we can address which is better - whey or pea?

One serving of our pea contains 111 calories and ~25 grams of protein. One serving of our whey contains 130 calories and ~25 grams of protein, so both have similar protein levels and whey has slightly higher calories.

Both are also high in L-leucine. Leucine is one of three branched chain amino acids and is primarily involved in muscle protein synthesis for muscle growth and recovery. It also contributes to the regulation of blood-sugar levels, growth hormone production and would healing. 

The leucine content of pea is about 7g per 100g, and in whey about 9g per 100g, so both are great for muscle development and initial research suggests that pea is as effective as whey in supporting muscle gain. Another study here found that pea protein vs whey protein taken post exercise both yielded positive results with no difference between the group taking pea and the group taking whey.

Overall, while both have excellent amino acid profiles, the amino acid profile of whey is better and whey generally tastes better. Pea is also slower digesting than whey, but has many other benefits as outlined above.

For more information see our blog articles plant vs animal protein and hemp vs whey vs pea.

Pea vs Rice Protein

Traditionally we were told to mix pea protein with rice protein because they were incomplete proteins - ie, missing one or more essential amino acids, and that the combination of both 'filled the holes' and made them complete.

This is not the case.

Both pea and rice are complete proteins, containing all essential amino acids. Both have powerful amino acid profiles suited to muscle building, with high levels of branched chain amino acids.

Though rice is a very good source of protein it has a grainy texture and can be unpleasant to drink. Pea is only slightly grainy and easier to drink than rice, so we recommend pea over rice except for those with pea intolerances.

The flavour wasn’t that good and it was a bit gritty.
Review by: Penny on Fri, Oct 11, 2019 9:18 AM
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.

Review by: Jordyn on Wed, Oct 2, 2019 6:30 PM
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.
Review by: Alice on Wed, Oct 2, 2019 3:46 PM
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Review by: Anonymous on Wed, Jul 24, 2019 12:18 PM
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.
Review by: Emma on Wed, May 29, 2019 12:35 PM
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.
Review by: Nadia on Thu, Mar 21, 2019 8:02 AM
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.
Review by: Ben on Tue, Feb 26, 2019 11:42 AM
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!!
Review by: Lisa on Tue, Feb 12, 2019 11:09 AM
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.
Review by: Hunter on Mon, Jan 28, 2019 10:55 AM
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.
Review by: Leo on Fri, Oct 19, 2018 2:21 AM
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!

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
Review by: Jodie on Tue, May 29, 2018 10:56 PM
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
Review by: Anna on Tue, May 22, 2018 8:05 AM
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!!

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).
Review by: Laura on Wed, Jan 31, 2018 5:04 PM
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!!!
Review by: Stuart on Wed, Jan 17, 2018 10:09 AM
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 !
Review by: Casey on Sat, Nov 25, 2017 11:14 AM
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 :)
Review by: Kendall on Tue, Nov 21, 2017 5:11 PM
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!
Review by: Julia on Tue, Nov 21, 2017 1:32 PM
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 :)
Review by: Liv on Mon, Nov 6, 2017 3:41 PM
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 !
Review by: Anonymous on Wed, Jul 26, 2017 10:58 AM
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!
Review by: Andi on Tue, Jul 25, 2017 4:22 PM
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.
Review by: Luke on Sat, Jul 8, 2017 8:55 PM
Hey guys, thanks so much for the excellent quick service in getting us the pea protein, the gourmet vanilla tastes great too!
Review by: Gary on Tue, Jun 13, 2017 9:41 PM
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
Review by: Jonathan on Sun, May 7, 2017 10:21 AM
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

Review by: Emily on Mon, May 1, 2017 10:48 AM
Best pea protein I've ever had! Excellently priced and completely delicious. Always great shipping times and great communication from NZ PROTEIN.
Review by: Lara on Wed, Apr 26, 2017 9:37 PM
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.
Review by: A on Tue, Apr 25, 2017 2:46 PM
Fantastic product and even better service.
Review by: Madeline on Fri, Apr 7, 2017 5:22 PM
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
Review by: Maggie on Fri, Oct 14, 2016 8:42 AM
Fast delivery and tastes great.

The only fault I find, is it does not blend well and feels grainy when drinking.
Review by: Alan on Thu, Sep 1, 2016 8:58 AM
Fast replies and shipping, thanks team.
Review by: Leo on Tue, Feb 2, 2016 6:15 PM
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.
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Dec 22, 2015 2:23 PM
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!
Review by: Mia on Sat, Nov 21, 2015 8:10 AM
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.
Review by: Stephen on Thu, Oct 22, 2015 12:08 PM
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 :)
Review by: Vanessa on Mon, Oct 12, 2015 4:46 PM
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.

Pea protein is an excellent product. This company delivers great customer service and is always prompt at delivery.
Review by: Carolyn on Sun, May 17, 2015 4:19 PM
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
Review by: nicholas on Sun, May 17, 2015 3:09 PM
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
Review by: Anonymous on Mon, Apr 27, 2015 4:42 PM
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!
Review by: Dani on Mon, Feb 23, 2015 11:44 PM
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
Review by: Hine on Thu, Dec 18, 2014 6:41 PM
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.
Review by: Anonymous on Wed, Dec 17, 2014 7:10 PM
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.
Review by: Catherine on Thu, Nov 20, 2014 6:58 PM
Really cheap, tastes fine, recommended A+ !
Review by: Benny on Tue, Nov 4, 2014 4:05 PM
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
Review by: Dave on Wed, Sep 24, 2014 7:55 PM
Real fast delivery and real good product without the bloat that whey gives me
Review by: Sammy on Tue, Aug 26, 2014 2:43 PM
This is wayyy cheaper than other pea protein
Review by: John on Wed, Aug 20, 2014 10:59 AM
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
