Not only does this product provide a daily serving of greens, but it is loaded with a variety of fruits, veggies, cereal grasses, digestive enzymes, antioxidants and probiotics, which work together to give your body the nutrients it requires for optimal health.
This SuperFood mix is a blend of organic, non-GMO wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, spirulina, spinach, chlorella, broccoli. Amazing Grass uses only organic, plant based, vegan, non-GMO, kosher ingredients. The Original blend mixes easily with water, almond/coconut milk, juices, smoothies, or even added to many of your favorite healthy recipes.
As this is the “original blend” of a grass superfood powder, you might already suspect that the flavor may not be for everyone. While some individuals may enjoy the taste of a good grassy mix, others may need to add some flavor to it, such as cocoa powder, or a few drops of stevia in order to add a bit of sweetness to it and mask that “grassy taste”. One nice feature about the original blend though is that since it doesn’t have all of the added flavors sometimes found in similar super foods blends, it’s versatile enough to be added to a range of recipes, such as soups, desserts, energy bite recipes, or as a topping for fruit bowls.
Like all of Amazing Grass Green SuperFood formulas, this product provides 3-4 servings of fruits and veggies per serving, and is only around 30 calories per serving. It is low in carbs (4 grams/serving) and offers 2 grams of protein in every scoop. Each serving is filled with plenty of vitamin A (as beta-carotene), vitamin C, and electrolytes. While a single servings may not contain a megadose of vitamins and minerals, it is still a great way to boost your daily intake of fruits and veggies, and powerful phytonutrients.
While Amazing Grass products are not be formulated to contain caffeine, this product may have traces (below 5g) from other ingredients.
Depending on where you purchase and how much, price is around 70 cents to $1, per serving. From a nutritional standpoint, the fact that a single scoop contains 3-4 servings of fruits and veggies per serving makes this product a good value considering the amount of nutrients it contains.
