Life Extension Buffered Vitamin C Powder -- 1 lb
Not the taste I was expecting
I previously used Nutricology's brand before this but thought I would save some money. I found the taste of this product to be much different and didn't like it. Plus, I had to adjust my daily intake all over again.

GOOD QUALITY, GREAT PRICING
This is a great way to have your vitamin C supplement, especially if you can not stand the acidity of ascorbic acid. Stir well in a big glass of water and drink after it is completely dissolved for optimum results

This is very good product if you want a highly concentrated buffered vitamin C powder without sugar or artificial sweeteners/flavorings. Although not delicious-tasting, it has a fairly neutral taste - I drink it in plain water.

Effective way to get vitamin C
The "Pleasant taste" is a relative statement. If you try other buffered vitamin C products, you will find that they taste so bad they make you gag. I have tried several buffered C products, and this is by far the most palatable though I admit it doesn't taste "good". It is quite acceptable mixed with fruit juice. It is true that if you do not use the product up within about a year, evidently the moisture in the air will make the buffering agents cake and turn yellow brown. For those of us who like the benefits of high doses of vitamin C, this is the best way to take it without the potential stomach irritation from acidic vitamin C powder. If you use buffered C on a daily basis you will run out far before it turns color.

The Life Extension website states that this product contains corn, contrary to the Vitacost website.
