warning : some may be contaminated by Black Scorch disease

I LOVED this dates. This was my second purchase, because I'd been very satisfied with the first one. But a horrible thing happened this morning, while I was driving to my office chewing some dates from this bag. Without seeing, I picked up my second date from the bag, And after the first chew, I smelled this weird stench. I thought it must have been from the outside odor. But on my second chew, it suddenly popped and fumed out a little black cloud of powder – it was a powder of black fungus. I threw the date out of my car window and checked myself on the mirror. There were grains of black powder (fungus) all over me. Around my lips, on my face, neck and my white shirt. I wiped them out with wet tissue, so now they are seemingly gone now, but I’ll be forever disgusted. I googled what it was; it was called black scorch disease. They say it can be identified easily because it contaminates stems, leaves – not only the fruit itself. For me, collecting & putting these infected date palms into the bags and selling them, even they saw the disease all over the date palm trees, it is totally unacceptable. I’m really disappointed with this product and their quality control. If you want to buy these date palms, carefully watch what you’re eating, before you put them into your mouth unless you want to taste the powder of fungus.

Good, but avoid this if you are allergic to yeast.

I tried to use this after reading Ultramind Solution by Mark Hyman MD. But I stopped, since I felt this itching all over my body and my face swollen / dark circles darkend in the morning. It may be the die-off of candida albicans, but I was worried after I googled & found warnings that you should not try this if you have yeast allergy. I'm allergic to beer & wine. I feel tired & have bad hangover over them. This is good yeast, not a bad fungus, but still a yeast. I'm giving this to my husband instead, and it seems to work for him.

Zinc in Zinc Picolinate form is recommended when you have pancreatic problem.

Since I have weak pancreas, this works great. Zinc is essential in metabolization, especially of protein. I'm following Dr Hyman's ultramind solution, and my health is getting better with this. Plus, it works for my husband. Especially for his libido & strength.

Like the taste, but yeast allergy warning!

Despite a lot of complaints about the taste, it was not bad - nearly good. Just don't mix it with juice. Apple cider didn't work for me. For me, just milk worked great. I really like their enthusiasm for perfectly balanced,raw meal. But there's one ouch, itch issue. I understand that they put brewer's yeast as an amino acid source. But it's one of those allergens with which many would suffer - including me. My face swelled and my ear felt itchy as soon as I ate this. I love this powder, but sadly I have to find alternative:-( But I only see alternatives with fake taste... Please, Garden of Life, make one without yeast for those yeast allergy sufferers!

Best coconut oil

Posted on Mar 29, 2012

I've tried a few other brands, but I always keep coming back to this. This oil is great for eating on its own. Smell & taste is so good to encourage me to eat this again & again...
