I absolutely love this product! I find that a lot of vegan and vegetarian protein blends tend to have higher levels of sodium, thus bloating me. This vegan protein powder contains lower levels of sodium in comparison to other vegan powders I have come across in the past. The taste is perfect (you are buying vegan, gluten free don't forget...so it's not going to be like other protein powders that are cake batter or brownie deluxe flavored). I also find that this powder is smoother than other vegan powders I have tried. For the health conscious out there, this is the vegan powder to try! I love it mixed into my oatmeal with a little almond milk and cinnamon, blended with fruits in the blender or simply mixed in a shaker cup with water. GNC definitely nailed this one! Price wise...it's like all other vegan powders and its well worth it.

This Vegan protein is one of the best I have ever tried. I have used RAW, sun warrior and a few others. The GNC brand it the tastiest. It tastes a lot like Vega Brand, but it is half the price. It blends nicely and it's not chalky at all. People need to remember that this is VEGAN protein, meaning it won't taste like regular protein. For a VEGAN protein, it's really a great product. It doesn't leave me feeling bloated like other brands. It's easy on the digestive system. Yeah, it has Stevia in it so i see some people complain about that … but if you are buying something that is branding itself as a CHEMICAL FREE product you should probably expect their to be stevia in it… if you don't like the stevia taste then don't go for a chemical free product… common sense. I happen to love the flavor of stevia, therefore I am really happy to have found this product. Thank You GNC for making something Vegan and chemical free at a great price (when it is one sale) !

Ok taste... but willl not buy again.
I had bought this product because I am TRYING very hard to stay away from dairy and plain soy products. Taste is ok, however it needs to be blended with fruits or something else. I do not care much about the texture. Does not hold my appetite for long (about 1/2 tops).

Get what you pay for!
When looking for a protein supplement, I wanted the most natural plant-based protein possible, and I wanted it to taste good. First I tried Jarrow's Optimal Plant Proteins, but that brand has a warning label on it -- it has a chemical known to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. OMG!!! I threw it out. This is when I first entered a GNC store to find a safe product. Naturally I found what I was looking for in GNC's Puredge Complete Vegan Protein powder. The natural vanilla flavor tastes good and also offers antioxidant support. There is no soy, dairy, or gluten in this protein powder. Read the Supplement Facts & Ingredients. It is non-GMO, no lactose, no wheat, yeast, fish, eggs, or any banned substances. Plus, it has one full serving of veggies and it tastes good. It doesn't make your smoothies look muddy or murky like some other protein powders do. I absolutely love it! Thank you, GNC!

This Vegan protein is so good! I have tried so many other brands, RAW, Sun Warrior and more and this is by far my favorite. I really like Vega Protein but the prices are outrageous so this is the next best thing. It's vegan so it will never taste like a regular protein. It doesn't make me feel bloated like other brands either - it's easy on the digestive system. I love the taste of Stevia in there also, but I am used to that taste so it doesn't bother me. Thanks GNC for finally making a "clean" brand and one for vegans !

WON ME OVER!
Chocolate Lover, Not a fan of Vanilla but was amazed and won over by this product, GR8 flavor. If you're expecting super sweet taste you won't find it here. Super Clean; GR8 4 lactose intolerants, blends very well.I use a shaker. I'm not a "smoothie" person just looking for effective clean pre/post workout and meal replacement protein. 100% satisfaction delivered with PUREDGE! If you've got to have the sweet tase I reccomend adding a little honey. PS beware of the "use by" dates. I've found that the Vegan protein turnover is not as quick as the whey in GNC stores. I purchased the chocolate Puredge in a store in late December 2016 & was disturbed by the moldy taste. I checked the "use by" date and it was Feb 2017.I thought it might just be me but after a week I threw it out. & went back to the Vanilla. I'm going to give it one more chance with the chocolate but next time online.

Great Results no Tummy Ache!
I switched away from Whey because I'm lactose intolerant and I see a huge difference in my strength, endurance, and muscle growth in only one week! Plus I no longer have tummy aches, cramps, or ... You know what belongs in the blank. The big culture shock for me was that you CANNOT blend this with milk to make a milk shake. I used to do banana, peanut butter, ice, lactaid milk and blend.. NO you cannot do that with this. You have to mix this with an BCAA supplement, a glass of water, and a few table spoons of a NON sweetened tart juice such as cranberry. simply shake with ice, do not blend. I take one scoop of this and the BCAA before and after each workout. Good Luck!

I like it
No soy, non GMO, Gluten free, it's everything I want in a protein supplement. I'm happy I came across with this product! It kind of smelled like bananas at first. I would recommend to blend it with berries. I love it.

I wanted it to be good....
So I wanted to be good and not use Whey (which is actually an animal protein), but as with Whey over 10 years, they've got a LONG way to making plant based protein taste even close to consuming. This was literally so nasty tasting that me and my mom had to dump our shakes out. It's like I walked back in time 15 years when Whey protein shakes tasted like chalk. Maybe in 3 years it will taste good enough to get down, but right now, I'd say avoid.
