Pea protein is a natural, vegetable-based protein powder derived from yellow peas (pisum sativum). Yellow peas are more commonly known as "split peas" and are used extensively in food preparation such as in soups & purees.

Most commercially available protein powders are derived from soy, rice, egg, or dairy, which are often problematic for those with allergic dietary concerns. We've chosen Pea Protein because it is a plant-based, hypoallergenic protein that yields a high biological value. The BV is an accurate indicator of the biological activity of protein. It measures the actual amount of protein deposited per gram of protein absorbed. High BV proteins are a better choice for increased nitrogen retention, enhanced immunity and IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) stimulation. They are superior for reducing lean tissue loss from various wasting states then proteins with a low BV score.

Through a clever extraction and purification process, our Pea Protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to 90% protein content! This unique process products a protein powder that is highly soluble and easy to digest. Pea Protein is ideal for vegans, offers an excellent nutritional profile, is free of gluten, lactose, cholesterol and other anti-nutritional factors.*

Comments about OLYMPIAN LABS 1011961 Olympian Labs Inc. Pea Protein-Vanilla:

I liked that it was high protein and low carb. It smells like a great vanilla taste! However, the taste really is just horrible. It is thick, it is chalky, gritty, and something I truly have to choke down. I don't want to have to mix with juice and fruit, because that adds a lot of carbs. I liked the whey protein in that the taste and consistency were both good. However, I was looking for a gluten free option hoping this would be a good buy, and I don't think I could stomach buying another tub of this again.

Comments about OLYMPIAN LABS 1011961 Olympian Labs Inc. Pea Protein-Vanilla:

I mix this with almond butter and diet grape juice and usually half a banana, strawberries and/or blueberries. I have it for breakfast and sometimes lunch. I love the taste and consistancy - but I do put it into a blender to make it smooth.

Comments about OLYMPIAN LABS 1011961 Olympian Labs Inc. Pea Protein-Vanilla:

This stuff gets VERY fluffy like dough when mixed with water. It becomes thick like a milkshake and is very difficult to swallow. Also it tastes horrible. I dont know anyway around this. I wouldnt buy it again.

Comments about OLYMPIAN LABS 1011961 Olympian Labs Inc. Pea Protein-Vanilla:

I decided to try pea protein as I am a vegetarian body-builder & need the extra protein throughout the day.

I had heard reather good reviews about Olympian Labs from other sites so gave it a shot. I was absolutely disappointed when I tasted it. It's very hard to drink unless I add about 3/4C berries or some other type of fruit to mask the "green chalk" taste.

Not a fan at all!

Comments about OLYMPIAN LABS 1011961 Olympian Labs Inc. Pea Protein-Vanilla:

A little while back, I made the decision to become vegan. I am a runner, and definitely had concerns about the fact that I may or may not be getting enough protein on my new diet. Since a lot of proteins are whey proteins, I wasn't quite sure what my options were in terms of protein mixes. I knew about soy protein, but like many other people, soy tends to upset my stomach. After some research, I found out about Pea Protein. This stuff is awesome. It is very easy to mix. I usually mix it with water or almond milk, and it is very easy to digest. I have used whey based proteins in the past, and found that it would occasionally upset my stomach. After a month of taking Pea Protein - I have no problems to report.It has 28 servings and is only [$] with my GNC card - a little less than a dollar a day - great value!
