      I tried this for the first time about a month ago.
      Took it every day after my workouts, using the directions provided on the cannister. While the value may have been better than most protein, the product itself was terrible. It did not mix well with any amount of water or milk. It tasted flat, even though it says chololate, it tasted like chalk. I could not finish the cannister.

            The chocolate use to have a different consistency and it made the perfect protein shake. it's now grainy like sand not powdery and dense. Now I have to mix it with the vanilla to give it a decent viscosity. BOO Go back to the old Vitamin Shoppe!!

                Was a little unsure because of the lack of reviews and samples at the time of purchase. Taste is good and has a more natural flavor with no aftertaste. Wish there was more protein per serving, so I just take 3 scoops. Also, adding some powdered peanut butter makes it even better!

                      I really like that this protein powder is made with stevia and cocoa powder. I was disappointed when I looked at the label and it didn't contain any amino acids, especially BCAA's, so I have to supplement them. But I think this tastes great! If you are looking for a "natural" protein powder, this one is great, just make sure to supplement your amino's!

                          I love the taste of this protein powder, and I love that's its all natural . Its not loaded with sugar like other protein powders I've tried.

                          Fantastic taste, fine powder that mixes thoroughly with a few shakes, AND DOESN'T LEAVE YOU GASSY! (Unlike some whey products.)

                          I know the product delivers 20 grams of protein but I cannot find anywhere what the amino acid breakdown is? I am looking for the amino acid ratios and they are nowhere to be found on the jar.

                          Best Answer: I use this as a meal replacement for breakfast. I blend 1 cup of almond milk and a frozen banana with this protein powder and have for the last 3 years. I am also a runner that averages 20 to 30 miles a week so its important that I don't get hungry on a long run. I drink it at 7am and have lunch at 11am. Plus it taste great and is made with stevia.

                          why choose this whey protein over any other?

                          Best Answer: The reason you would choose this product is because of the "no artificial colors, flavors, or sweetners" - and it still tastes very good. The reason you wouldn't choose it, and why I won't anymore is that it will not break up in a shaker cup - no matter what is in the cup to break it up, nor how hard you shake it. You still drink lumps of powder.
                          If you only make your shakes in a blender, I would recommed it - otherwise, I would not.

                          Does this product have any soy-based ingredients or soy derived whey protein? Does it have any GMO's in it's ingredients?

                          Best Answer: According to the product description on the label it does contain Soy but mainly whey from milk. There is no indication on the labeling that it does not contain GMO's though there is a comment on the label that says: No banned substances, unlisted ingredients or harmful impurities. Which I would take to mean that if there are GMO's True Athlete has not been as truthful as they could have been. In this case Natural is only a name not to be confused with a quality.
                          I have used this product and the vanilla version for over two years and enjoy it because it blends very well and has a pleasant taste.
                          Good luck!

                          Is this organic, and/or gluten-free?

                          Best Answer: This is a protein powder that my husband used for some time a while back. He believes that it is gluten free but not organic. Overall was a great protein powder

                          According to the label this product is nut free and there are no eggs in it either. This should be a good product for my eight grade grandson to use after workouts for recovery. He is allergic to nuts and eggs so I need to know if you think this product will work for him? Thanks!

                          I was wondering if there is any soy lecithin in this product. I'm asking because I have bought protein powders before that list no soy and when I receive it the label says it has it. Thank you?

                          Since the directions don't indicate when to take this product, when is the recommended time taking into consideration an active workout schedule? Is it recommended to take another supplement BCAAs because this product does not seem to include them?
