Review: Perfect Food
Like many of the green drinks, Perfect Food is heavy on the grasses, which I’ve often mentioned are good ingredients, but not necessarily the best. Thankfully, this product also contains a significant amount of spirulina and sea veggies to make it a bit more robust than some of the other grass-heavy green products. The veggie juices included (beet, carrot, broccoli, etc.) are not in huge quantities, but it’s nice that they are included. The filler in this product is the rice bran solubles, which is not a super nutritious choice, but better than some products, like guar gum. At $4.24 per ounce, it’s not a bad value, but compare with Delicious Greens, which is in the same price range, but a different formula, or Green Vibrance, which has a similar (but more robust) formula and a better price tag.
The whole foods found in Perfect Food provide vitamins and minerals as nature intended, but it goes beyond just that. Perfect Food also delivers naturally occurring cofactors and synergistic compounds by utilizing concentrates and juices instead of extracts and isolates. Other formulas often load their products with non-greens and fillers. While many of these non-greens are important and have a definite nutritional benefit, no other type of food source provides the nutritional benefit of green foods. That is why Perfect Food Super Green Formula Powder contains over 8000mg of greens per serving.
Grassy. Slightly Earthy.
