The packaging is different on the Amazing Meal containers, did the formula change?
No, they have not changed their formula. They recently made a change to their packaging and labels however the product inside is still the same.
Why is the container of Amazing Meal bigger?
They received quite a bit of feedback from consumers that their older containers didn't have a wide enough opening and made it extremely difficult for people to get their hand into the container to scoop out the powder, especially as it got lower in the container. They had several people who had actually cut their hands trying to scoop powder from their old containers. The new bottles have an opening that makes it easy for anyone to get their hands in the container to scoop out the powder. The new containers are also in line with their competitors containers for similar powder weights.
The one challenge they have though, is they have a disparity in the amount of powder for each flavor. Since all 4 flavors have the same base blend so they can keep their supplement facts on all flavors aligned with the amount of protein, fiber and greens contained in one scoop. The chocolate Amazing Meal has the biggest serving size as 32 grams, while the original has a serving size of 22 grams..so the original blend that you purchased probably has a bit more head room in the container than would be necessary, but the chocolate has a nice fill level. Quite honestly, it would also look strange to have 4 different sized containers on the shelf for each flavor and by standardizing on one size container it allows them to purchase in bulk volume from one supplier and limit transportation and help us keep our carbon footprint lower.
Amazing Grass' powders also settle and compact during shipping and when filled, they are light and fluffy and need extra space in order to ensure that powder doesn't come up onto the lip and interfere with their nitrogen flushing and heat induction seals to ensure the contents are properly preserved for freshness.
Hemp protein used in the Amazing Meal product line?
Amazing Grass' organic hemp protein comes to them from their friends at Manitoba Harvest.
What test does Amazing Grass use to verify the gluten free status of their Amazing Meal products?
They use a R-Biopharm RIDASCREEN FAST Gliadin test to 10 parts per million. Their Amazing Meal products are tested BLQ (below the level of quotation).
Amazing Grass' Story
Amazing Grass cereal grasses are grown and harvested in the good ol' United States of America, on their family-run farm, in Kansas to be exact, where they're dedicated to creating the best Organic Green SuperFood, made from the finest ingredients on the face of the earth. They believe in the incredible power of nutrition, leaving this world better off than how we found it, and above all, sharing the happiness of Amazing Grass with people - because at the end of the day, making people happy makes Amazing Grass happy people.
Amazing Grass is from farms, not factories. The Amazing Grass Proprietary Process:
- Their grass is harvested just prior to the jointing stage. Their cereal grasses are harvested only ONCE a year during their nutritional peak.
- The grass is direct cut and move quickly (usually within an hour) to a specially designed low temperature dehydrator.
- Cell temperature remains below 107 degrees Fahrenheit, to retain maximum levels of heat sensitive nutrients.
- The dehydrated leaves are cooled and pressed into pellets. This decreases the surface area and reduces oxidation and loss of nutrients.
- The pellets are filled with pharmaceutical grade "super sacks" and nitrogen packed to limit oxidation and nutrient loss.
- Their pellets are stored frozen below zero degrees Fahrenheit and only bottled as they need them.
- Rigorous quality control methods and independent lab verifications ensures the safest and most nutritious wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, rye grass and alfalfa available anywhere.
- They use the highest quality pharmaceutical grade PETE (#1) and HDPE (#2) containers packed with nitrogen and an air tight heat induction seal.
- All these safeguards mean you receive Amazing Grass' bottled products nearly as fresh and nutritious as the day they were harvested on their farm in Kansas.
