wrong origin listed
When I bought the pomegranate juice powder, the description said the country of origin is the USA, but when it arrived at my home I was VERY upset and disappointed to find that the origin is from CHINA. I do my level best to avoid foods produced in China as they don't exactly have a clean record of their environment, and the waters and air are so polluted. I'd rather do without. I had planned on returning the item, and before I could communicate that to my family members the pkg was cut open. :( :( Such a waste of over $30 to have to throw it away. Staff did not have much to say when I brought it up when I happened to relate this in person when I was able to visit the warehouse store after that. I never really got an explanation. I do not know if the current product is actually from the USA, but I would advise others to confirm the origin of this product before letting it be shipped to you. Of the several times I have checked this page in the last 7 months the stated origin had never been changed.

I’m not sure if it’s me or the product
I have written amazing reviews for everything I have purchased except this one. I thought I could add it to water to give it a fruity flavour, but it resulting in two things, brownish coloured water and a flavour in my water that I would never describe as pomegranate or fruity. Maybe this is meant to go in smoothies, but without knowing the nutritional value of adding it into a smoothie, I think it’s safe to say I wouldn’t buy this again. But everything else I have bought from OM has been amazing!
From CHINA not USA
I ordered this pomegranate juice powder, doing so because the web site lists it as originating in the USA. A family member picked it up for me as part of a very large order, and would not have known to reject it and have it deleted. I was very disappointed to see it is actually from China once I unpacked all the items. Regardless of things being called organic from there avoid foods from there now as carefully as I can as with the dense pollution and industry the soils are likely as contaminated as the air and the rest of the environment there. Even if growing methods are 'organic' is anyone testing the soil and water? I had planned to return it and before I could prevent it, my husband cut open the package. :( :( What a waste of funds as it will probably get thrown in the garbage. :( We eliminate many things from our life and live frugally and simply to be able to buy good quality food, which is important to us. Need to check labels if picking up in person, or make a note on the order now stating, no foods from China so they can be deleted.
Additive impacts taste
The Tapioca additive clouded the flavour of the pomegranate and in my view spoilt the eating experience. I like to eat the powder raw with a spoon, and found that the Tapioca flavour comes through first and reduces the pomegranate flavour. Also, you advertised this product as made in USA, but the packet clearly says made in Chine.
