I have never used pure chlorella before, so I do not have anything to compare this product with. Having said that, here are my observations. 1) The powder has a dark, beautiful green (emerald green) color. 2) It mixes with water easily. A blender is not required. When i use water, I mix manually. When i make smoothies, i use a blender in order to make sure that the other ingredients mix well. 3) In plain water, it is almost tasteless and, therefore, palatable. In apple juice or soy-protein smoothies, it can even be called tasty. 4) I have not used it long enough to make a judgement on effectiveness. (Some reviewers claim magical overnight cures experienced by taking supplements. I have never been that lucky.) I feel that it has improved elimination, energy level, sleep, and skin. 5) Sometimes, intriguingly not all the time, I sense a faint fishy aftertaste in my mouth that lingers. Overall, I think this a product worth taking regularly.

I bought this product as part of my heavy metal detox regime. I’m known for having an iron stomach, but I could not keep this chorella down. It made me sick and nauseous.

Awful taste that is impossible to hide in a smoothie. After i got really ill the second time and vomited for hours I stopped taking it. I've never tried chlorella before so I can't really have an opinion of how it should taste or how you you're supposed to feel. It might be that I'm sensitive to chlorella in general for all I know. On the upside I lost some weight really quick;-) /Mike

I couldnt stand the taste of the powder form, capsules or pills are way better! Nothing wrong with the product though.

I would never recomend this, it tastes and smell like a farm. I have tried many brands, and non of them is even close to this awful taste. The texture of the powder is also completely different from other brands. Very dissapointing.

When I received the product, the bottle was partially unscrewed and some of the powder had spilled out. Following standard precautions about not to consume a product from an unsealed container, I wrote Now Foods for an explanation and to let them know about my concern. Their reply was reasonably fast. They assured me that the spillage was normal due to perforations that they make in the internal seal but that, due to the partially opened bottle, the quality could have been affected. They recommended that I notify Iherb about the problem for and to request a replacement. I sent the Now Foods letter to Iherb without results. So, I was unable to use the Now Foods chlorella, for safety reasons. In conclusion, I don't know how good or bad Now Foods organic chlorella is, but I do know that their packaging for this product is defective. I lost my money. This does not preclude me from ordering again from Iherb, since my net experience with the company has been favorable, notwithstanding the risks.

Found out this Chlorella is from China and after doing research it is the most contaminated source of Chlorella with arsenic, lead and aluminium.
