1) It's a lot sweeter than I thought it would be based on other reviews and the product description - frankly a bit cloying, which too much Stevia can be if it's not tempered with something else. I've tried it a few ways now and have found that it's best when you mix with some tarter frozen fruit in the blender to balance out the flavor, like berries and a little mango with unsweetened almond milk or adding a squeeze of lemon into your green version. I definitely wouldn't add banana to it again though, as it was almost inedible. That said, I tend to like things less sweet, so if you're a person that enjoys higher sugar content and you don't mind Stevia, which can have a mildly bitter aftertaste and can take some trial and error/getting used to if you're new to the world of plant-sourced non-sugar sweeteners, you'll probably be fine with this.
2) The other thing about it is the consistency. After you first blend it, it acts like a smoothie, albeit a chalkier than average one. However, if you're a slow drinker (which I am, especially when there's this much protein involved), the mixture needs to be stirred every 5-10 minutes, otherwise the water content starts to separate and you're left with a gelatinous mound staring back at you from the bottom of your glass like a balled up banana slug, likely due to the chia content of the powder. It's palatable, but not the most eh... how you say... inviting?
Ultimately this stuff is really good quality. I am not vegan but I've been working harder lately to make changes to avoid animal products where possible. This stuff makes you full without feeling heavy and is a solid animal-product-free option for people trying to work more protein into their regimens without contributing to, you know, the ecological demise of human civilization as we know it. That is to say, I'd recommend getting some reusable straws to help even it all out.
After further research I found that the I gradient list has been changed drastically from before. So much more has been added to it. I expect some additives in flavored protein but not the extent to which this company has done.
If you're looking to an alternative to the expense (and sugar and calories) of your morning Starbucks, here's my recipe for a healthy protein packed alternative Vanilla Latte. Every morning I add two scoops of [[ASIN:B016K2P91Q Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy, Iced Mocha Cappucino] to one scoop of of the Vanilla plant protein. Add 16oz of water (or if you want something thicker, nut milk or regular milk): delicious, refreshing, energizing, and MUCH better for your wallet and waist than a Starbucks.
Sucralose in the Extreme Milk Chocolate & many other flavors have degraded this product greatly. Love this protein powder, but the sucralose has given me an upset stomach when I drink it. Absolutely horrible, have to run straight to the bathroom. Not sure why this was added as the product was totally fine before. Ordered Double Chocolate as pictures show it doesn't contain sucralose. If it does it will be returned and I'll be searching for a new brand.

Aunque este producto no tiene carragenanos hay otros productos similares que si los contienen.
¡Basta ya de introducir productos cancerigenos en la nutrición! Gracias
Wasted my 2.6k , Not at all whey protien , i have been using this product frm hkrt and results were visible
Entonces decidí gastar más dinero en una marca confiada y famosa, y estoy más que orgulloso, los grumos se diluyen muy rápidamente, sabor bueno, y sobretodo nada de molestias.
Estoy encantado con este producto, sin duda repetiré.
Precio-calidad inmejorable! Recomiendo
Totalmente precintado, lo he estrenado yo.
Amazon y transportista (ASM) como siempre de 10!
Sinceramente si hablamos de precio real sin oferta es bastante cara, porque aunque te pongan eso de 24g por cada 32(ojo con esto, no son 30) no es proteína Isolda a pura, es una mezcla.
Ponemos que son unos 25-29 euros el kg siendo la cantidad real de proteína 76,8% que además contiene aceite de Palma, grasas, azúcares moderados, etc... Mientras que hay otras marcas que te venden por 30 euros 1 kg con 86% o por 55 euros 2kg de más o menos lo mismo y que encima no usan aceite de palma.
El sabor aunque sea EXTREMO chocolate es un sabor un poco raro si lo mezclas con agua o suave si lo mezclas con leche.
En definitiva, la proteína está bien en sí, pero pienso que por 3-5 euros más se tienen opciones mucho mejores en todos los sentidos.
Onto the performance side of things. I have been using this for the gym, on two occasions, I've noticed I wasn't getting 'light-headed' and out of energy within 30mins of moderate-to-intense weight training. I can say that they were no ''stomach/gut problems" meaning it's digestible and absorb-able by my body without any noticeable problems! .
* The Extreme Milk version is way too sweet, which makes it taste terrible.
* Birthday Cake initially tastes good but tasted terrible after a while.
They all pack the protein punch you need. One of the few brands where the actual protein amounts matches the nutrition label attached based on lab results.
Difficult to really tell how well it works but the science backs up protein powders for recovery and growth. Also amazon sell it for a brilliant price. Much cheaper than high street companies
