I feel more energetic when I put this in my smoothies but it definitely has a fishy kind of smell, I haven't tasted any fishiness in my smoothies but try not to breath too deep when you open the bag. I'm sure it would dye things a cool green color as well, I haven't tried it in any baking or anything yet, only already green smoothies. Also its really hard to know how much a pound of each of these things is, it would be awesome if you posted a picture of each item packaged for reference.
After consuming this powder my conclusion is that I don't trust that the product is as pure, fresh and as clean of pollutants as it claims to be and as a consequence my body didn't respond well to it, I am disappointed with the quality, this is one item I will not purchase again, it was a waste off money, definitely not the high quality that I think organic matters strive to offer.
