I just got some of NOW's Pea Protein and it is NASTY!! :lachmal:

Was wondering if I can cook with it??

If not I can try blending it with something but first I need to know if I can cook with it. It shouldn't hurt the protein right?

I dont think pea protein is nasty as rice protein...but i use olympian labs. Ive been curious about mixing in with my oats, too scared to try and ruin the batch tho lol...let me know if it works for u! do u know if the protein loses its properties if its heated?

I imagine you could cause I cook with rice protein.

Got it!! All I did was add a tsp of Splenda. Its great now! I guess any protein powder would be nasty without flavoring so it should have been a no brainer.

I'm also in transition from Splenda to Stevia but that's a slow process. (had to add that for the hardcore vegans, lol)

Since its not totally nasty with flavor added to it I'm thinking I can probably just add it to a dish (like a pasta recipe) after it has been cooked but still hot. That way I'm assured of no denaturing.
