      from Wisconsin on 4/16/2022
      Had GI problems, after the other medication stopped working, found this product. Took for 5 days, cleared up problems and felt great! It does take a bit to get used to the taste, but it is tolerable. Over all very happy with this product.

      Continues to be a good choice

      from Michigan, USA on 9/17/2021
      After a recent surgery, this was the only food I could tolerate for a couple of days. I took the formula with me to the hospital along with a mixing cup; it was easy to add water and shake up the drink.


      Taste is good; vanilla and mildly sweet. My kids like the smell of the powder - "Mom, are you making cupcakes??"


      Pricey!! Have to work it into my food budget. Discounts are much appreciated!

    • Would purchase here again.

      from USA on 8/04/2021
      Arrived fairly quickly. No problems. The product is as advertised. My research tells me that this is one of the best tasting of the elemental diets. Add a little bit of vanilla extract for extra flavor. And stevia to taste. Still, I find it a bit hard to get down., but am more used to it now. They say to sip slowly. It came in very handy as on top of GI issues I had oral surgery and could not eat solid food. I have been using as a nutritional supplement as it provides me with needed calories, free amino acids vitamins and minerals. I find that doing 4 scoops in a shake with 4 oz per scoop allows me to sip it over several hours. When I was doing 1 or 2 scoops it was taking me the same amount of time to drink it and I wasn’t drinking enough. I mix the dextrose free with the original with dextrose and that’s worked out fine. All in all a very good product and company.


      Best quality elemental shake on the market


      Taste takes some getting used to

      Miracle In A Bag

      from NYC on 6/19/2021
      I've suffered from severe digestive issues my entire life that have intensified with age and this was a last resort for me. I was hesitant based on internet anecdotes of the elemental diet but after a week I was feeling better than I can ever recall. I actually enjoy the taste and it somehow keeps you satiated. I'm having a bit of difficulty transitioning back to normal food so that is the next challenge but I would absolutely recommend this product for those struggling with severe digestive problems. Also, the Pure Formulas staff is so lovely and helpful. I've had to reach out to support a few times and everyone is incredibly kind.


      It tastes good (I add some cinnamon to it as well) and it works! Just don't drink it too fast or you can get a little queasy for a bit.


      It's pricey -- but so is food!
