A fourth of this is sugars.

Posted on Sep 27, 2014

Unfortunately I have a real measurable problem towards a range of food substances, so unlike many people who have jumped on the trendy gluten free diet by choice, I can't suddenly choose to eat gluten again. For more than twenty years I have had problems finding nice tasting products for my diet. Often the fabricated products for people on a gluten- and dairy free diet are bland, at least in Scandinavia. Therefore I use iHerb and other sources to find alternatives to my diet. So I received this cereal without really knowing what to expect. But after testing it I must say that I really like the taste of this particular cereal. The declared nutrients for many cereals are typically hiding behind 'serving size' instead of using a standard volume for measuring the nutrients. This fools many people to believe that it is less sugars in a cereal than it really is. This cereal is no exception. Because it must be said that it is used more than enough sugars in it. (Btw: "natural maple flavor", does it mean that it is not real maple syrup in this?) In fact, even when it is not refined (white) sugar in this, it nevertheless might be too much sugars in this for some people: More than a fourth (28%) of the carbohydrates are sugars. And since more than 80% of the cereal consists of carbohydrates, it means that approximately a fourth of what you ingest of this cereal is sugars. Although my body has no problems with food rich on glycemics, I still think the content of sugars in this cereal could be less without threatening the good taste. I remove one star because of it.

Good and fresh taste. A little strange aftertaste.

Posted on Jul 11, 2013

I really like the taste of this chocolate. It has a typical average dark chocolate taste (a little strong and bitter), but instantly the rather sour taste of raspberries kick in. And it is a really fresh taste! We don't always just want a supersweet chocolate taste. However, the aftertaste on my tongue isn't equally pleasant. Almost like having eaten sour yoghurt or sour milk. So the clue is either to eat the chocolate without stop (joking), or to eat something else, or brush the teeth to get rid of that aftertaste. I remove one star because of it. Four stars.

Rhodiola, great for generally boosting energy - and it's also an aphrodisiac.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Many people experience an instant increase on their energy level while using this. And those I know that have used this, find it gentle on the stomach. Also Rhodiola (the herb, and not only this brand) is among some natural products that reportedly increase the libido. I have only sporadically been using Rhoidola, so I haven't much experience about this particular brand myself. But I have tried it a for a few days, and unfortunately I didn't notice anything really. But since people I know report a lot better effect, I will only remove one star, giving it four stars. Now Foods generally obtain good quality raw material for their products.

I like this!

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

Super rich on lycopene. Some tomatoe varieties have more of it than other varieties.The more red the more lycopene it says. I haven't much else to say, else than that I like the thought of an abundance of antioxidants in a pill. I wished the producers hadn't put so many help substances in it. And the artificlal colours they could have avoided. Coating on the outside is ok so that people get the tablet down the throat. (I always chew on pills whatsoever, and do I it with this as well. Easily chewable.) Anyway, all the help substances in a tablet makes me feel that one has to balance something healthy with something unhealthy, or unnecessary. It shouldn't be that way. Yes, I am hypersensible toward a lot of substances, and I can notice the many help substances make my stomach act up a little sometimes when eating this pill of lycopene. But it is not severe. Hadn't it been for all the help substances (additives), I would have given this product five stars. But four stars it is.

Good quality, a little disagreeable taste.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

I tasted this brand almost twenty years ago, and I really mean to remember that it had a little better taste than this. Decided to try it again, and the taste was worse than I remember. But not as disagreeable that I would feel sick because of it or avoid talking it. Since it is supposed to be a nice superfood, I give it four stars. After some more time where I may experience some longtime effect, I may edit this review.

Iodine for the thyroid gland, how can I know this product works?

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

I thought it woud be fine to cleanse the thyroid gland, so I wanted to ingest some iodine daily. Since I don't have any obvious health issues related to the thyroid gland, I wouldn't know whether this product is a quality product. So how can I know if this is a quality product? Of course I don't know. But iodine is a very simple mineral, and hopefully the purified water isn't just some homeopathic stuff, but that it has actual iodine in it. I have tried professional homeopathy for two years and it has never done anything to me; it doesn't even give me a placebo effect. So assuming that this product has real iodine in it and is not some 'energy fairy water', I will give it four stars.

Sweet and good smell.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

I just bought this by impulse as it was on sale. I have it by the kitchen and when I think it's too much smell of food after dinner I use some of this smell. I could probably use it on other areas as well, but honestly I am not that addicted to lots of perfume or floral smells, so I guess I will continue using it as random as I do. The smell is good. But it lasts only a really short time before the scent is gone, (but this is necessairly not a bad thing), so I give it four stars.

This tastes good!

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

...but not delicious. But it does what it shall for me. I am hypersensible toward lots of food substances and I need something to add to my very calorie restricted diet. And these energy bars give me easy accessible calories. I don't tolerate dairies and gluten, soy and egg whites, and almost no fruits. Considering not tolerating fruits very well I find it a surprise thatt I tolerate most of the Larabar enegy bars. So these Larabar products are great for me. I have tried most of them in a matter of a short timespan, bought almost all in different Larabar enegy bars in two months. This one isn't my favourite, but I still rank it high. Four stars.

Not the best taste - but then taste is very personal

This one is definitely not my favourite. It tastes very little. I taste the cashews, but then I don't like cashews if they are not salted. But my taste is not the universal taste, so this product will do well for those who like unsalted cashew nuts. Three stars.

Smell of old ladies and WW2 homes. In a nice way really.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

I gave this to my mother so that she could have it in her bedroom. Lavender has a tranquil effect, and it is good for sleep, helps relieve anxiety and (supposedly) it promotes good dreams. Now, after spraying this in the air, the smell diminishes far too fast, so I doubt that it has much effect of the desribed above. But perhaps if my mother uses it as a nose spray it will work better. (Joking of course.) I have to add that it was never said that this lavender spray was to be used the way I described above. It is just meant for the scent itself. It has a good smell though, but since the scent fades away so quickly I give it three stars.

Good - but apparently not for me.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

After taking the pills, it builds up on the upper part of the stomach and it becomes this reflux situation. Without even burping I get this sensation of the taste of the collagen up my throat and I experience fur on my tongue. And I feel slightly nauseous for hours. Not only I tolerated it poorly, but so did my mother. And she doesn't even have the same troubles with food substances like I do. Strange. Even though I personally had bad experiences with the collagen, this product is apparently derivated from healthy sources, so I rate it neutrally and give it three stars.

Good for oily skin - not really good on other skin types.

Posted on Jul 10, 2013

An adult person with normal skin tried this one, and well, the peppermint is quite too much for skin that isn't very oily. I would say that this product is generally good for teens or for a small number of adults with a problematic oily skin. And of course even more if pimples are a problem. The rather narrow use for this masque, has made me decide to give it three stars.
