Organic Freeze Dried Aloe Vera Powder
It's probably good for you, but I was disappointed
First of all, I was surprised at how small the container was, the picture makes it look much bigger. I was also disappointed at the taste. I expected it to have more flavor and it was difficult to dissolve. I don't want to put it in hot water, because I'm sure it would alter the product.
I'm sure it has all the benefits of aloe and it is a convenient form and easy to carry around because of its' size, but it is unpleasant when the powder tends to clump, which makes it taste even worse.
I probably wouldn't get it again as it was a little expensive as well (but not out of line with the cost of aloe generally).

This is the best aloe I have found. It is very hard to find good pure quality aloe at a reasonable price, but here it is. And very convent. Their is no taste and it only requires a little, so this last me aprox 1 month, using it daily. I highly recommend trying it.

I find this product to be very helpful and much more convenient than ordering large gallon bottles.0ne scoop is equal to one glass, and a small jar lasts a long time. Highly recommended.

Bought instead of Aloeride
After learning about an expensive capsuled freeze-dried aloe supplement (aloe ride), I sought a more affordable option, and found no similar product in a capsule. But I found this much more affordable powder. I have added it to juice, smoothies, or yogurt, and I cannot tell the difference in taste.

The best quality aloe powder hands down. I would say much better than the juices you can buy since they are pasteurized to the point they do not require refrigeration. I did the math and since this is a 200:1 concentrate it takes 22 pounds of fresh aloe to get the 1.76 oz of powder. You get what you pay for big time with this product. Thank you Mr. Swanson!

Great Product. Good Value.
As other reviews say, this product does clump a bit over time and I hope Swanson finds a solution, but it seems to be high quality and I can still use it clumps and all (just chop at it with the scooper or a spoon to break up clumps). Thanks!

Tends to clump after a while
I bought this product because of the calcium in aloe but it was somewhat disappointing with the tendency to clump up after a while. But overall for aloe it was convenient but somewhat expensive.

doesn't keep well
You need to use this product quickly as it hardens up in less than a month. Maybe a little packet of silica gel would help

Big Product in a Thimble!
I was blown away when I received this aloe product. Where was it? The container seemed so small! At first I was disappointed, until I saw how convenient it was to use! I like to use aloe sometimes after a meal, to enhance digestion.
My secret to loving this product was to find a "good seasons glass shaker bottle" and fill it to the cup line with water. One tiny jigger of this highly concentrated aloe goes into the shaker bottle, which gives an immediate, and full "mix" of the powder with the water. Then in a jiffy, you drink the valuable juice, knowing this aloe has come from a highly legitimized source of manufacturer. Now I love the small, space-saving container with the mighty "knock out" power of many glasses of aloe! This is a great discovery for me! It's a wonderful soother for digestion, as well as its many other healing, healthful qualities! You've got to try some!
