Anyone using Hemp protein powder?


#1

How does it taste? It seems a no-brainer to use this for scalability as it would be easier to produce they whey protein.

My concerns are how does it actually taste?

If no-one has tried it let me be the first to jump and report back.


#2

It probably does not have an ideal protein profile like Whey or Casein do. Also, not that cheap!


#3

just ordered a kilo of the stuff. should be here in this week.
Will work out the comparison as far as costs go and update on the taste.

I did! You need a mixture of 60% Hemp protein, 40% Pea protein to get a complete protein profile.

However, it was absolutely revolting(And turned the drink green! xD), and I doubt I could have downed it without throwing up. Haha! And I don’t know how one could make it consumable(Aside from burning off your tastebuds).

If we could get flavored hemp protein, maybe.


#5

hah. just after I order you tell me this :slight_smile: Now I have to guzzle a kilo of the stuff down. I think If it is mixed with enough oil the taste might pass ( hopefully ).


#6

And hold your nose! Lol. Maybe add some heavy artificial vanilla… And extra water.


#7

Soylent…green? Incredible! :smiley:

I take hemp protein after my workouts because I needed something that wasn’t based on milk.

The taste is revolting and I’ve read the pea/hemp mix in more than one bodybuilding/crossfit forum.

I’m waiting for my current batch to end so I can try whey protein isolate and if that doesn’t trigger my lactose intolerance, I’m sticking with it.
