Sweet Carrot Juice Powder with Probiotics
I was looking for a more affordable probiotic product than what I was previously using and decided to try this powder form. I just finished the first container and I must say the Swanson Sweet Carrot Juice Powder with Probiotics is a great value. The effects were easily noticeable and the powder form helps increase my daily fluid intake. The taste for me was a bit bland when taken with water so I prefered it with juice and cereal. Also the free radical protection form the carrots is a great bonus!!

Get your veggies!
Add to smoothies. Put in bottled water. It's a great way to get veggies in on a busy day! When using in a smoothie add fresh or frozen fruit and veggies for vitamin packed liquids your body can easily absorb!
Add organic coconut oil for a bonus!

Making this review after I've used the whole thing. I was looking for something to up my vitamin A game and also as a probiotic. Both for skin health reasons. This item was perfect.
Taste-wise it was not too sweet as others have said. It's a lightly sweet carrot flavor that was not too overwhelming (I dislike actual carrots). Just filled a small glass with water and that's it! I actually looked forward to it in the morning and felt it gave a small boost. One thing to note that it is NOT SMOOTH. The top will be nice, but when you get to the bottom, it may be hard to swallow because it remains rather grainy. Not a big problem for me since I'm more interested in the benefits.
Skin benefits: while I could not say it dramatically improved complexion, it did not break me out. With that, I was already happy. On that note, my skin has been a little more obedient, but that could be from a lot of different factors since I've been changing a lot in my lifestyle.
Overall, I am happy and will gladly repurchase and cycle in with other probiotics.

I love the Carrot Juice Powder mixed in orange juice. It's a great way in the morning to add nutrition and help the immune system.

Nothing beats fresh, but powders are convenient and I've been unable thus far to find any comparable carrot juice product to Swanson's. When the price sometimes goes too high for me, I generally find that it goes back into the zone that keeps me buying it.

The product has decent taste (although my kids, who are not real picky eaters, don't like it.) I've tried mixing it with juice or yogurt or milk. The milk is the best of the three, but it's a bit gritty. I plan to go back to buying probiotic capsules, which are a better value and which the kids like better.

Sweet Carrot Juice Powder
I have been using sweet carrot juice powder for the past 6 months. I use a blender to mix it with juice each day, and it has a pleasant taste. Since using this product, I have been well even in the winter time and I have had extra energy to keep up with all my work as well as enjoying my travels. I recommend this product for great health and energy.

If you have ever tasted Hallelujah Acres carrot juice powder, then this will be a disappointment. However this is not pure juice. It contains dehydrated carrot, so it won't dissolve in your mouth and it is not as sweet. However, it is much more affordable than pure juice powder. Right now I don't have time to juice, so I'm using this. It tastes good in my morning smoothie.

Carrot juice IS carrot juice
I have been using this product about a week. I enjoy it with water and fruit juices like the V-8 brand fusion. I don't get enough of a variety of vegetables and love carrot juice. This product tastes good. It is fiberous(well, there are carrots in there). The only issue I have had is getting it to mix well. The powder forms small air bubbles of carrot powder and it takes alot of stirring. I have not tried this in a blender. I got this vegetable in powder form for the ease of use. I didn't want to purchase a juicer or alot of costly vegetables that may not be used in a timely manner.
My daughter loves this as well. She drinks it with water or other juice blends. I have yet to try it mixed in with yogurt.
Another benefit I have had to me is the extra energy. I can feel the 'surge' and it stays with me for a while. I purchased the S. Green Foods Formula Greens powder mix. It has been great too. I am almost ready to give up coffee in the morning and go with just these eye opening products....they have been great for me!

A good product
This product has a slight carrot taste. I didn't find it as sweet as some other reviewers did. I only tried it for a week and I added it to my smoothie with other green super foods so it's hard for me to tell what the individual results are with this product.
Based on the nutritional data on the container it has a noteworthy amount of vitamin A.
I would like to know if this product retains other phyto-nutrients that carrots have other than just vitamins, such as various carotenoids, antioxidants and such. Knowing that would influence my decision on the product.
I would probably buy the product again.

good with juice
I like this product. I mix with different kinds of citris juices. Not very good with just water, will order again.

Useful to have on hand
This carrot powder has really been great for lots of uses. I agree with some reviews that the taste is quite sweet, so it's preferable to mix it with the right solute -- actually I use it on tofu, and it turns into a kind of sauce. With a little experimenting you can come up with some delicious ideas, but I agree, it's a little sweet for just mixing with water, maybe fine for kids. But really what I like about this product is that it is really handy as a portable, dehydrated source of carbohydrates, energy, probiotics, and Vitamin A. Great for camping, and for me it's handy to keep at work. I will definitely buy this again, it's very practical and nutritious food, which is important to me.

Good buy, good product.
I have been using this as part of a break fast protein smoothie for some time now and have been very satisfied with the product,

I have always enjoyed fresh carrot juice and usually make my own, but I cannot contain or carry the juice to work or anywhere really. So, until now, carrot juice was an at-home item.
With this carrot juice powder, I can now take my carrot juice everywhere with me. I am so pleased with this find. And, the fact that it contains probiotics makes it all the more efficient.
The flavor is good, and the texture is nice.

just wasn't what I would've wanted...
Now, I'm not going to debate whether or not this is a good product. It appears from the label to be, in fact, a very good product. But I sincerely did not care for the nasty tropical "artificial Tang" taste and the grittiness. yuck. No thank you. Perhaps they should make this same powder, but non-flavored so that people can put it in juices and liquids that taste they way they would prefer!

Great Carrot Juice Powder!
Here's a great product if you want all the benefits of carrots without having to actually chew them.
I used to put 2 to 4 carrots in a juicer machine and drink them (with a few other ingrediants) but that takes time, work and alot of clean up.
When I saw that Swansans Vitamins was selling a "sweet carrot juice powder" I thought I give it a try.
I was pleasantly surprised. It really is sweet tasting. And, with this being a 14.2oz container it will last a long time.
Ive added this item to my favorites list and will purchase it again.

carrot juice without the hassle
this product tastes almost as good as raw carrot juice with much more convenience of preparation and a fraction of the cost

I have purchased this to mix with my daily Vitamin shake and it ads alittle bulk to the product. This is something I suggest mixing with another product or juice as I dont find my taste is in agreement with this one with water alone. Am not sure if I would buy again but it was originally for my wife anyways who has a hard time seeing as it is. So I guess for her sake I will have her take regualary but not for me.
