I would have rated it 5 stars last year. Sometime this year (2012), the formula changed and the powder is no longer the strong bright green it used to be. It seems the barley grass component has either oxidized or reduced in proportion to brown rice and tapioca starch. I reordered and hope this was just a batch problem but unfortunately the new batch was just the same. I have since switched to NOW 100% Barley Grass Juice powder and true enough, the pure juice powder is rich bright green in color. Without filler starch and brown rice, NOW packaging size has to be kept small to prevent clumping. Price is inevitably higher. But it is well worth!

Very bad taste. Difficult to mix with water. Best method is to use a shaker, but that results in a lot of foam, which is hard to get down. A capsule would be far easier to take, but I will finish the container first. I believe it is effective in adding energy, but I have to remember to allow 20 minutes before breakfast.
