Orgain Protein Powder Review – Product Overview
I’ve been looking forward to trying Orgain Organic Protein Powder, so I figured this would be the perfect time to do so. Both regular Orgain Organic and the Orgain Organic with Greens were purchased.
I went overboard and even bought the 12 packs of the individual package pre-mixed “on the go” drinks in both the regular Orgain Organic and the Orgain Organic Vegan selection.
This couldn’t have come at a better time as I have been searching for a protein powder that was a little healthier. I wanted to get away from artificial sweeteners such as sucralose as well as the artificial colors and flavors of a traditional post workout powder.
Orgain Organic also leaves out the man-made chemicals, fertilizers, and preservatives. The other thing that caught my attention is the 21 grams of protein per serving. This is an excellent concentration for a plant based protein powder.
Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to try hundreds of different protein powders dating back to when they tasted like sawdust. They have come a long way, as nowadays most of them taste great. Even the healthier ones like Orgain, that don’t use artificial ingredients come with some great reviews.
Being an “Organic” non-believer and skeptical of everything Plant Based in my past life, I’m ready to give in to the “Organic madness”. Eating healthier alternatives have yet to kill me yet.
In this review, I’m going to point you in the direction of the cheapest and best link to get Orgain Organic Protein Powder. I’ll also give you a little background on what it takes to be an Organic product, and what to look for in a good protein powder. Part of my review will be listing the “pros” and “cons” of Orgain to help you make a decision whether or not this protein powder is right for you.
It time for me to put my shaker to work and get shaking with these new products.
Orgain Protein Powder Reviews and Tasting
Taste is pretty important to me when it comes to nutritional supplements. I hate a too sweet or too strong tasting artificial sweetener taste, or when the flavor is sickeningly over-exaggerated. I’ve tasted awful, stinging booberry and a burning, desert tasting strawberry shortcake flavor.
To keep it simple, the flavor that I purchased was simply a “creamy chocolate fudge”. Orgain protein powder also comes in 4 other flavors. One is called “natural unsweetened” flavor. Not too sure about trying that one.
On my first run with my new protein powder, the shake was thick and foamy with no powder clumping. The directions are 2 scoops of powder with 12 ounces of water or almond milk in a shaker or blender. I choose to use unsweetened almond milk to make my protein shakes.
My taste opinion… Nice and chocolaty without it being too artificially chocolaty flavored. And not too sweet. The Organic post workout category is generally not overly sweet, because there are no artificial sugars or flavorings. Some regular post workout powders try to overcompensate with fake sugars and flavors, sometimes with terrible results.
For this review, I’m taking 3 scoops of protein, so I am upping the almond milk to 20 ounces. The reason being is that one serving of Orgain has 21 grams of protein and I wanted to get a little more because of my weight and because of my heavy workout routine. Of course, this is not for everyone, I just happened to be pushing myself harder in the gym lately.
The standard Orgain Organic serving size of 2 scoops is only 150 calories. This is less than a small sandwich.
Later this evening, I was still a little full. Not that this is a meal replacement shake, but it definitely curbed my hunger for the evening. I could have eaten dinner, but as a single man I preferred to do some snacking tonight as well.
⇒Here are a couple of healthy shake recipes that I recommend trying with your Orgain protein powder:
Potential Orgain Negatives
Personally, the only negative that I could find is its price. Unfortunately, eating healthy costs more and always will be, so look at it as an investment in your body. The strict USDA regulations, as well as a higher quality of ingredients, make Orgain more expensive to grow and manufacture. Everything must come from products that are grown without chemicals and fertilizers.
Orgain may be the best $30 dollars that I have ever spent. However, it only contains 20 servings per container. The serving size is 2 scoops instead of the 1 scoop like some traditional protein powders. The serving size is larger because plant proteins are not as concentrated in Amino Acids as animal proteins.
For such a great Organic protein, it comes out to only $1.50 per serving. Since you most likely don’t exercise every day, this powder can last some a couple of months. Sounds like a worthy investment for your health.

Orgain Protein Powder Reviews
In general most of the reviews that I have read were on the positive side. People really seem to like it. This is saying something since Orgain is competing with regular brands that spend a lot of money, time and research to make their’s taste better by using artificial flavors and sugars.
Some of the negatives that I read were user error. Such as, taking it before the workout (it is a post workout supplement) or taking more than the recommended serving making them bloated.
As I figured, a couple of people out of a thousand didn’t like the taste or it wasn’t sweet enough. This comes back to the absence of artificial ingredients. Personally, I don’t care for my protein powders to be super sweet.
One review talked about the awesome “almond butter and banana protein smoothie” that they make out of their Orgain Organic. I may be trying this one for myself.
Orgain Organic is a super popular product and evidence of this is the over 70 customer ratings as of this writing. Below is a screenshot of one of those reviews from a verified purchaser. You can click on the image to see more verified customer reviews.

The Orgain Organic Conclusion
As a long time user of Post Workout Protein powders. I’m more satisfied with Orgain Organic than many that I’ve tried. I’ll go ahead and give my blessing on this protein powder. Not only is it better than many other post workouts, but there are no chemicals, fertilizers and artificial ingredients.
The Chocolaty taste and no clump formula were up to par. Not too sweet, and not an exaggerated “fake” flavor. Along with the almond milk that I chose to mix it with; it was a great, filling protein powder.
I was also happy with the Orgain Organic and the Orgain Organic protein premixed shakes. These come in 12 packs, are pre mixed and are a great choice for “on the go”.
There are no real negatives to Orgain Organic unless you are on a tight budget. There are definitely less expensive proteins on the market, but none of those come close to the purity of the ingredients in Orgain.
Many protein powders advertise natural or plant ingredients when it is just false advertisement. Make sure it has the USDA Organic seal before you purchase.
