[Amazon.ca] Green Superfood powder

Hey guys, green superfood powder is on sale. It doesn't get much cheaper than this. I use it for my daily breakfast/post workout shake.

Yes, you can eat fruits and vegetables instead of using a powder supplement. Yes it's cheaper.

Yeah, I've gone through half a dozen or so different kinds. They all taste pretty sweet. It's powdered fruit after all.

Greens + a banana is pretty much the only sweetener I use.

Good sale price but sometimes it's really a case of getting what you pay for. How are some greens supplements $2+/serving (athletic greens) while this one is $0.5>?

For $6 more I'd recommend something like:

I'm not affiliated or anything but atleast it's not a proprietary blend.

I mostly agree. It's an unregulated industry, the players make wild claims and the ingredients are all over place from brand to brand.

I eat a lot of whole fruits and vegetables so I'm not overly concerned but it's worth pointing.

Will try yours next..

Yep, makes it's almost impossible to do a label to label comparison.

Any idea what rakuten % these health products fall under?

4g carbs in a scoop (8g) kills it for low carb/keto. Thanks for posting though.

You should be fine since net carbs is 2g carbs per scoop.

Its is a great deal OP, Thanks
But the first review makes me wonder and the manufacturer did not even bother to answer.

Liked it so much until I found it has maltodextrin ...

Liked it so much until I found it has maltodextrin and silicon dioxide! I saw the benefits but I also know I am drinking these two bad ingredients every day. Please just get rid of these ingredients!!!

Just eat some damn real food. That's more "natural" and "organic" than this garbage.

Silicon dioxide is both completely unstudied in greens as well as not that well researched. We don't know what it does yet, but it remains approved by the FDA. It could be added in to reduce clumping. As far as we know, it's safe.
The non-GMO maltodextrin is just a highly purified corn starch. Neither looks like problems to me.

As a side note, this is probably what redflagdealers are going to be consuming in the next 10 years. Sign me up for some soylent green so I can finally buy that OLED monitor

What's there to answer? There's nothing wrong with either of those ingredients.
