Amazing Grass is one of the most well-established greens powders on the market: it’s the most reviewed on Amazon, it’s got over 150,000 Facebook likes, and it’s extraordinarily cheap to boot.
Organifi Green Juice is in a different league. The company has over two million Facebook likes and is focused around founder Drew Canole and the media empire he’s created around his brand, which includes the online video channel and recipe site Fitlife.tv.
Both products are full of greens like wheat grass and spirulina, but there are some notable differences. If you’re trying to decide which one is the best green superfood drink, we’ve found the answer below.
It’s bland, but that can be a pretty positive thing when we’re talking about greens powders. While a lot of them are overwhelmingly earthy, Amazing Grass goes down pretty easily. You can still tell it’s made from grasses, but it’s not hard to drink and can mix pretty easily into shakes.
For a green superfood drink, Organifi has an outstanding taste. The ingredients list strongly emphasizes the fact that it contains coconut, but it actually tastes like a refreshing mint tea.
On Amazon, you can usually buy a hundred servings for $51.50, which is 51.5 cents a serving. The price sometimes rises to 55 cents per serving, but in any case it’s one of the cheapest greens supplement on the market if not the cheapest. That’s a big draw.
At about $60 for 30 servings ($2/serving), Organifi Green Juice is on the more expensive side for a greens powder and it’s several times more expensive than Amazing Grass.
Winner: Amazing Grass
No bells and whistles here, Amazing Grass has zeroed in on the the core ingredients most people want from a green superfood drink.
The ingredients list isn’t long, but it’s got all the greatest hits: wheat grass, barley grass, spirulina, chlorella, green tea, rose hips, prebiotic fiber, and probiotic bacteria.
It’s a proprietary blend, so we don’t know exactly how much of each ingredient it contains, which could be frustrating for some buyers — particularly if you’re concerned with how many probiotic bacteria it contains. But since it only contains one strain of probiotics, it’s not a particularly effective means of improving your gut diversity anyway. Diversity of bacteria should be a core component of a probiotic supplement.
Nonetheless, it’s a solid product that’s likely a good source of antioxidants and digestive benefits.
The main ingredients are wheat grass, wheat grass juice powder, moringa oleifera, spirulina, chlorella, green tea leaf, ashwagandha, red beet, and turmeric.
All the ingredients are organic, as is the case with Amazing Grass, but a big difference is that Organifi contains a lot of…
