Made in China or Taiwan
Posted by Reviewer2112317 on Dec 11, 2013
I purchased this product because it was labeled as being made in California. The package says that it is a product of China or Taiwan, likely just packaged in CA.
Take note: Made in CHINA/TAIWAN

They should mention this here, would have not bought this had I known. Misleading marketing by omission. As China is the world's most polluted country, organic & toxic-free spirulina from China does not sound very convincing.
Inferior Taste to Other Brands
Posted by Reviewer1534079 on Jul 10, 2015
This arrived while I was in the middle of my first bottle of Nutrex spirulina, and the difference in taste was very noticeable. It helped me understand that Nutrex really tastes fresh and pure, while this didn't have a natural taste for me. This works out at $30 per pound, while Nutrex is $35 per pound and Healthforce Nutritionals (also excellent) is $39 per pound. For just $5-9 more per pound, you can get MUCH better products than this. I am not so concerned about this one being made in China in itself - although most production there is not as we would want it, this is not true of all brands, and this one seems to have a very low level of contaminants and heavy metals according to what I have read, but the taste is just lifeless when compared to Nutrex on Healthforce Nutritionals.
Good product but package problems

A great nutritious product with good taste and smell. Good for mixing into food and smoothies. The only "con" is the package - it is quite difficult to open the bag without getting green hands...
Ok for smoothies, but made in China/ Tawian

Good product for smoothies. But it's product of China/Taiwan, so I don't think I'll re-order.
Made in China or Taiwan

Is this product made in China or Taiwan? Who knows? That's what the packaging says. I guess that's why it's cheap. Throwing it away, I'm not taking chance of consuming a product that comes from one of the most polluted counties in the world.

A must in the smoothie but great mixed in with fresh juices.

Smells incredibly bad
Posted by Flicka on Apr 24, 2014
I have previously used spirulina tablets and that seems to be the only way I can ingest spirulina.The smell is so horribly and I just cannot drink this stuff.

I was little afaid of the taste but taste is platable with yogurt or almond milk.
