Vegetable 'powders'

Just wondering what people think about these 'greens' and 'reds' powders? I've noticed an influx of them on Amazon and in grocery stores. They're quite pricey. I eat a lot of whole vegetables already, but wondering how much of a health benefit these would provide? So far the main benefit I see could possibly some antioxidants - definitely not fibre.

Considering getting these - cheapest ones I could find:

I like coupons and turtles.

Maybe they’re good for someone who can’t eat a lot of produce? For example, someone on a low residue diet or perhaps someone that lives in a food desert and doesn’t have regular access to or can’t afford to buy fruits and vegetables often.

Will it enhance your state of health if you already follow a balanced and varied diet? Nah.

Might be good if your strict on meeting daily nutrition targets.
Could be useful for picky eating kids, people on long journeys, people off the grid.
As for for the avg normal person, I can't see it being super beneficial.

I'm also not a real doctor or a RFD doctor.

Most of the 'supplement' space is non-regulated. The amount per scoop in these 'veg powders' is negligible. You would get more nutrition out of 1-2 cups of spinach in a smoothie.
