Love Complement Protein - taste, ingredients, packaging material, care taken in production. It is the best vegan protein we have ever tried. Well done to the Complement team.
Love that it is in pure form.
I used to make frothy shakes in the morning with frozen fruit, flax, chia, etc. It was time consuming to make my shake have nutrition on top of all the extra added ingredients. Now I just mix complement protein with room temp water and drink it. It's easy to drink and not harsh on my stomach. Thank you so much for making this!
PROS: LOVE the fact that there are no sweeteners of any kind, and the ingredient list is clean, as I have significant dietary restrictions. I can feel good about using Complement, and since it doesn't have any added flavor, it works well with any food. Today, I tried it shaken in my blender bottle with a little water and oat milk, (how I'll likely use it while traveling) and it was delicious!! Blends up beautifully in smoothies with frozen fruit, greens, whatever you fancy. AND, I appreciate the compostable/biodegradable packaging immensely!!
CONS (and why I deducted a 1/2 star): In thinner, non-frozen mixes, there is a slightly noticeable grittiness to it, but not so much that it's unpleasant, or a deterrent. When I mix it with a frother with just H2O (another travel method), there were a few clumps that didn't mix in, and it caked up in my frother whisk. As some other reviewers mentioned, I had 1 of the 3 bags arrive with a small hole in it, which allowed a surprising amount of product to leak out, and the ziplock style closure gets filled with product and won't actually zip closed. But, I transferred it to a perfect-fitting glass canister, which works quite well.
I don't mind the missing scoop in the least; I seem to have dozens of them around the house left over from all the other products I've purchased, and I don't always use the manufacturer's "serving size" of protein powder, anyway. With Complement Protein, I just use a measuring spoon or a coffee scoop - easy!
I used complement plus probably a year ago. The capsules were larger and more firm. There was no smell about them at all. I will use these and see how it goes. The smell is a bit like fish! Besides the bottle and design colors what is different? I feel your product is one of the best a definitely most convenient available. Thank you.
I purchased this protein powder after hearing Matt talk about wanting a little extra protein for his kids. I’ve added it to nice cream and smoothies and I love it. It doesn’t add a chalky texture or a funky taste. My 6 year old didn’t complain about this protein powder like she has other ones, so I call this powder a win!
I love Complement. All the protein I need to help my body recover from challenging runs with none of the fillers and sweeteners I don’t need. Complement mixes well in smoothies without any chalkiness.
Tastes bad. Very dissatisfied. I ruined my smoothie.
I have only begun to experiment with Complement Protein. I discovered it works hot or cold. Tonight I blended it with almond milk, dates, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, and tea. Then I warmed it up. I look forward to new recipes.
As a vegan athlete I've always been on the hunt for a clean plant based protien, but the problem is they all have had sweetners (stevia, cane sugar, etc...) Not only do I try to avoid added sugars in my diet as much as possible, but I dislike the taste of alternative sweetners such at stevia. Very happy with my new go to protien in Complement protein.
It is what it is! There was a bunch of loose, leaked powder all over in the shipping envelope, but none of the bags were ripped so it came from somewhere else. So, shipping was messy but product is good so far.
This is the protein powder for you if you don’t like chalky texture and/or artificial taste. It’s tasteless as far as I can tell and silky smooth!
I like the product - neutral taste and mixes well, plus it is actually filling! I also really like the fact that the ingredient list is limited to only what is needed.
However, of the 3 bags in my shipment, 1 had rips in it and the powder had spilled out into the shipping packaging. And a 2nd bag had pin-prick holes.
The bags are larger than I expected. Thanks!
Good taste and blends better than my previous go-to (Simple Truth whey). Those two factors on top of the simple vegan ingredients put me all on board with Complement. The attractive packaging design is a plus too, as it lives out in the open on my countertop.
One request for change: The bag's ziplock style closure gets powder in it and doesn't close well. A zipper-style closure would probably work better.
The taste is neutral and it blends pretty well in a smoothie. However, the bag is HUGE - what a waste. Plus, there's no scoop included. Please make the bag smaller and add a scoop.
Love what's in it (and what's not) and haven't even noticed it in my smoothies (which is a good thing)
What a great find. Everything is transparent and the product is delicious. I had to email the team a few times with questions- they responded quickly and were a pleasure to work with!
I just received my first order of the complement protein. I love that they have provided the percentages of the 6 (only 6!) products that make up the protein and have taken the time to make sure it is providing a pretty even supply of all of the 9 essential amino acids. I really appreciate that they have put the product in a compostable pouch. It's not full zero-carbon cradle to grave, but it's a start. The taste is fine; there is no sugar, or fake sugar, so I wouldn't say its delicious, but that's on purpose and it is perfectly edible. The only thing I think they have to still work on is the pouch doesn't really zip closed. I'm just folding it and using a clothes pin to keep it closed, which is working just fine.
The powder is virtually tasteless. I use it in a berry/kale smoothie I make every day. I think my only comment would be the cost relative to the qty - sure I'd like more ;-). Now, that said, there really isn't a analog to this product and the amino acid profile is excellent. I'm pleased thus far and I'm happy to support this product. It will be in my permanent rotation in terms of usage. Cheers to the team that created it.
The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating is that the taste takes some getting used to when you first start using it. My 4 year old son wasn’t too fond of it, but we are figuring out new ways of masking it with fruit in his smoothies. I also wish it came with a scoop for ease.
Do you mean ""compliment"?
Nope :-) That is one of the foundations of our mission:
1. a thing that completes or brings to perfection.
Great to know what is actually in my protein powder
Just as described! Thanks for a quality product.
