WAY watered down!
Don't buy this. DeSouza's is probably 4 times more potent. They both say 100 mg per tablespoon on the label, but there is no way this can be true. DeSouza's is thick and dark - this stuff is barely green!

On Second Thought...
When I received my order, I immediately noticed how it was not as thick as another brand I had tried. The previous brand had the consistency of blood but this was far more watered down. If I add 1 tbsp to a bottle of water, it is still clear with an unnoticeable, slight green tint.
I went out of town and forgot my chlorophyll so I went to a popular vitamin shop and purchased their "high potency" chlorophyll in a dropper. 1 dropper or 30 drops had the same amount of chlorophyll as 1 tbsp of this Vitacost brand. When I added 30 drops to my bottled water, it went COMPLETELY green, almost black, but it tasted EXACTLY THE SAME, not stronger...and it stained my entire mouth!
When I compared the labels, I am STILL getting the same amount of chlorophyll with this Vitacost brand,...however I don't have to deal with looking like I just ate an alien. Despite my initial disappointment, I actually prefer the Vitacost brand over the dropper chlorophyll and the previous brand I used because it's far more convenient in the same dosage.
Also, if you poke a small hole in the foil cap with a toothpick, it's much easier and cleaner to dispense. :-)

Green is good!
I add a splash of this to my morning cup of warm lemon water for added green goodness. It barely has any taste at all (something I was worried about). Works for me!

I used to take Nature's Sunshine Liquid Cholorphyll and then they changed their formula to add Spearmint oil, so now I am not so fond of it. But theirs was 1 tsp = 40 mg of same "Sodium Copper Chlorophyllin" - theirs was much thicker, darker green. If I compare 1 T to Vitacost's 1 T serving - Vitacost has 20 less mg of Chlorophyll (the rest being water/glycerin)
Vitacost's Liquid Chlorophyll is much more watery. So I am thinking that for the price, Nature's Sunshine/Vitacost are probably about the same when it comes to actual amount of chlorophyll you are getting into your body. I prefer to take LESS amount and get more potency, but Nature's Sunshine does not have a plain version anymore. :( I will go with Vitacost's Chlorophyll then.
