To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We first bought KOS wheatgrass juice powder in April 2022. Previously, we used NOW wheatgrass juice powder but their supply was interrupted so we needed an alternative.
Turns out, we actually preferred the KOS product because it provided nutritional benefits, it tasted less grassy and it was a better value. So, we decided to re-order it in May 2022. However, I was surprised to see the Amazon's dread "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." message and contacted KOS directly. They told me this product is discontinued, will not be replaced and does not have any direct equivalent in their product line.
So, it's back to the NOW product: https://www.amazon.com/NOW-Supplements-Certified-Organic-Superfood/dp/B0014M1WA0/ And *their* offerings can be a bit confusing. This one (ASIN: B0014M1WA0, if Amazon blocks the link I provided) is the only one that is 'juice powder'.
My wife and I have been using this product for almost two years after trying out several brands before that. The reason we used KOS brand was not because it was any better nutritionally, which it may or may not be, but rather for its taste. It WAS the most mild, smoothest, and had the least aftertaste of the several brands we tried, which we didn't think was possible. After all, it's grass juice powder, it should taste like grass, uhh, because it is grass! But KOS was different, and we were fans.
That all changed after our last purchase May 7, 2021. We still had a little of our old left, so we didn't actually bust this new out til last week around May 14th. Woe was it different! The same dose we always took, one scoop with one cup water that I chase with an ACV/Lemon Juice cocktail. The WGJ shot was approximately 3 times more green, or dark green, and the taste was so strong I wretched the first time I had the new, until I got my ACV cocktail chaser downed. The taste and color were completely different! And it wasn't good different. This was not the same product as the last time I bought it. They majorly changed the way they mixed it, grew it, and/or what kind of substrate it was grown in. It looks and tastes like it is more than double the concentration, but the label was the same and so was the printed nutritional info on the label. No mention of any change whatsoever.
So bottom line, if you were using KOS Wheat Grass Juice Powder over other brands for its more smooth and milder taste, don't count on that being the case any more. Maybe it actually is more concentrated than before, and therefore you are getting a stronger more effective product, but we have no way of knowing that because the label doesn't reflect that, and it is not FDA regulated. We are going to start trying other brands again.
I like this wheatgrass juice powder - got no complaints about the actual powder itself, seems good quality. The reason why I'm only giving it 3 stars instead of 5 is that for the second time, I have received a tub with a broken seal and powder leaked out inside the lid. As you can see from the photo, there are a line of pinhole punctures in the seal. Under the lid, there is a line of these dots that are quite sharp for some bizarre, unexplainable reason, and these have obviously punctured the lid during storage/transit. This is exactly the same problem I had with the previous defective tub I received. They really need to address this problem with whomever they pay to package the product. Seals are very important and the slightest puncture renders the product useless (it says not to consume if the seal is broken on the tub, so I'm not exactly being unreasonable). Fair enough I was able to get a refund without having to send the faulty tub back, but it's such a pain having to order stuff again and wait when you really need it.
EDIT: The replacement they sent me had exactly the same issue, a broken seal. You can see it in the 2nd photo with the lid next to it. Same issue - sharp nodules on the inside of the lid puncture the seal, and the powder leaks out. I am definitely not consuming anything with a broken seal, especially not this day and age. This is the third tub I've had to be refunded for now so I think I'll just reduce the rating to one star and seek out another brand. Clearly serious quality control issues here.
...any longer. However I've been using the KOS dried product for nearly a year (OFF/ON) as needed and I'm getting the results which, I'm looking for, but slower than actually fresh juicing. I believe that to be a fair and expected result. The flavor is milder than fresh and mixes well whether a smoothie, juice or just a glass of cold water. I find that to be of great use and ease as allot of powder products don't. I've been please with delivery times, quality and overall consistency. KOS will continue to be my go-to until I can juice fresh again.
I first love the KOS Protein so I decided to give the wheatgrass powder a try when I saw it online. This mixes us well and doesn't clump, there is no nasty after taste either which is a bonus. I add it to things or I sometimes have it in just a cup of water if I haven't taken my dose for the day.
I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to boost their immune system and complete the micronutrients they intake daily. The kicker is that this is organic and made in the USA, doesn't get any better than that. Give this a try and keep the products coming guys!
I was amazed by how easily this powder dissolves into a liquid. I expected the wheatgrass flavor to be stronger, but it's extremely mild. I take it on an empty stomach in the morning as suggested, and I do notice a small increase in alertness/energy awhile afterwards. It might be placebo, but after about two weeks, I began to notice that my face has been looking more 'refreshed' each morning rather than dull/tired.
I've been putting the recommended amount in a small portion of tomato or cranberry juice, which makes it very palatable. I've been remiss in taking it every day, so can't speak honestly to the health benefits. However, the taste and smell is mild and it's an easy way to get extra antioxidants and vitamins. I plan to continue to use and my goal is to establish a daily routine. This seems like a very high quality product and I will purchase again.
I had a shot of wheatgrass once and the taste was just way too bad to justify drinking it everyday. However, since I really like Kos' vegan protein powder, I decided to give this a try. The taste isn't like lawn grass you would expect, but its an interesting flavor that resembles a little bit of matcha green tea. It tastes amazing with my protein smoothies, oatmeal, and other even just drinking it by itself. Great product and I already feel healthier after tryign it for a couple days.
