Rated 2 out of 5 by HappyTrooper Doesn't dissolve well in liquid/water
The good: no smell or aftertaste, reasonably priced, no fillers like stearates
The bad: doesn't dissolve well in water or any warm liquid even after giving it a good stir. So, I try to drink it while the powder grain is floating/swirling after a good stir. Beginning to wonder if it will dissolve in stomach acid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nutrabest Calcium Powder
I prefer Calcium Citrate powder and I think it is better than pills for the simple reason that has one less ingredient processes. Moreover I think digestion is better with whole food or whole ingredient. I gave a 4 star because it does not dissolve easily in the water.

Since it is a powder there are no fillers added like there are in pills.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hagelult Great Powdered Calcium
I use this to supplement my dogs' homemade raw diet with calcium on the days when there isn't bone included in their meal. Powdered supplements are so much easier for making dog food but it's hard to find human supplements in powder form. Also love that it's just pure calcium, a lot of products have other vitamins and/or minerals added which won't work for my purposes. Great value as well. Will continue to buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tanek I've been using this calcium powder for about three weeks now. The texture is grainy and it does not dissolve in liquid but it's also a small dose with no flavor so it's easy enough to take. I just swirl in water and drink while it's moving. I can't speak to its efficacy yet as I just started it recently, along with a few other supplements.
I think the cost is good from what I've seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ANWRootBeer Economical, but chalky!
It was just fine, but the powder does not dissolve, sinks to the bottom of a glass of water quickly, and has the taste and texture of chalk! But great for the price :)

No fillers...just Calcium Citrate so you are giving your body what it needs without extra chemicals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by youngasIfeel Easy, Absorbable, Lasts
I've tried many different calcium products: while it is not always easy to determine whether a given one is being absorbed fully, I am liking this powdered product a lot, using it daily, for nearly a year now. My body seems to like it --and I use Swanson magnesium supplemention, too, in a balanced fashion. This product is EASY to use, lasts a long time --good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaTeenieZ Swanson Premium 100% Pure and Dairy-Free Calcium C
100% Pure and Dairy-Free Calcium Citrate Powder has been a life-saver for me! I'm allergic to gelatin capsules and my body can't dissolve tablets. or many years I've opened calcium (and other) capsules to dump out the powder and mix it with juice so I could swallow it. This powder saves me a lot of time and trouble and works great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AL2724 Great product
I do not like to take large pills and often a good calcium supplement is either very large or I need to take multiple pills. This powder goes easily into a fruit smoothie and does not divert from the great taste of the fruit. An easy way to supplement the extra calcium I want and need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnF better absorbed
I have been using this product for several years. I like it very much because I feel that I absorb it better ( I mix it into a liquid and drink it). Also, this kind of calcium ( citrate) is one of best kinds to take-- also better absorbed.
And the price is very good.
I mix this calcium powder with the magnesium citrate powder and feel that they are great!
I have felt really good since using this product.

My son and I both need to add calcium to our diets and this powder formula is a great way to add it to breads, hot cereals...almost anything. The little measured scoop makes it very easy to use and no guessing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bird Something wrong?
WOW - this was horrible. Some other reviewers said the product was virtually tasteless, and my experience with all other calcium citrate brands is that they are also virtually tasteless, and they dissolve pretty well for the most part. But this Swanson Calcium Citrate powder tasted like fishy-smelling poison crystals to me. Very sharp-tasting and horrid. I had my husband taste it, and he immediately had to spit it out and grimaced excessively. He thought it smelled like paint but still tasted poisonous. I'm returning mine - did they have a bad batch, by chance? I'm in total agreement with most of the other reviewers that said this wouldn't dissolve and is very gritty. I like the "N.." brand of this powder.

This powder was very granular and did not dissolve well. Other similar products dissolve completely in water and are lighter in consistency .

Rated 4 out of 5 by M953 Mixed feelings on this one...
Pros - It is calcium citrate and very affordable for this form of calcium.
Cons - It does not dissolve well even in hot liquid.
I will be purchasing this product again because of the value and I don't have a problem dumping the serving directly into my mouth as it is relatively tasteless.
For customers expecting and needing the product to dissolve in warm liquid, you should probably look for another calcium supplement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ljimbo Great value...
This powder is tasteless, so I just drop a scoop on my tongue once or twice a day and wash it down with some juice. Because it's tasteless I don't see why it couldn't be put into a smoothie, a glass of juice etc.
