Amazon Therapeutics, Camu Camu Mega-C, Camu Camu Juice Powder, 3 oz6 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I believe this product has a high potency over the other brands. The powder is very fine and it does clump so the best way to use pour some powder with water and let it sit for a few minutes. The taste did not bother me. It tastes like a very weak lime or citrus juice. Also, it is cold pressed which means there is no chemicals involved during the extraction process. The label says: &quot;Only organic cultivated or sustainable wild harvested plants collected&quot;, which means a lot for those (&quot;like me&quot;) who like to buy sustainable products. Good product! You body will thank you even though you may not feel the difference right away.
The price is right, but beware that the powder is clumpy, so don't attempt to pour it out of the jar. Use a measuring spoon. If the clumps bother you and you're willing to spend more, the Whole World Botanicals version is better.
