Bulk Powders Complete Greens Review | The Most Affordable

Complete Greens Review

Bulk Powders is the UK’s fastest growing nutritional company. In this Complete Greens review, I will have an in-depth look to their superfood powders. In fact, Complete Greens is one of their oldest products, a staple since 2012 and a customer favourite. It has evolved a lot throughout the years, and recently they have reduce the amount of greens from 25 to only 10. In contrast with many of the other best green powders, Bulk believes that less is more. Let’s find out in this Complete Greens review.

Often, green powders tend to pack countless vegetables, mushrooms and other greens in order to provide you with the widest array of phytonutrients. However, the effectiveness of such small dosages can be negligible. In turn, that’s what Bulk Powders believes, since they offer one of the most simple green powders with only 10 ingredients (not counting flavouring and sweeteners).

Ingredients

Core Greens Blend

Complete Greens is composed of 10 main greens: spirulina, chlorella (broken cell wall), broccoli, wheatgrass, pumpkin protein, barley grass, alfalfa, spinach, moringa and kale.

Most of these greens are commonly present in all Complete Greens alternatives. Spinach, for instance, is a very well-known superfood loaded with nutrients (such as, insoluble fibre, iron) and antioxidants. These among other things might reduce the risk of prostate cancer (also broccoli).

However, there is an odd addition to this mix: pumpkin protein. As a protein source, Complete Greens has a negligible amount of protein (only 3g). Thus, it seems slightly out of place.

Adaptogens

Interestingly, Complete Greens has no adaptogens.

Enzymes/Probiotics

There are no digestive enzymes or probiotics in Complete Greens.

Sweeteners

The flavoured versions contain stevia extract. Arguably, this is “greener” than sucralose or other artificial sweeteners.

Other Interesting Ingredients

None.

When it comes to Complete Green’s taste there not much to complain. All versions mix very well, although, you might find some sediments in the end; and there don’t from any major clumps (even when mixed with a spoon).

Bulk Powders Complete Greens Mixed Berry taste
Mixed Berry was my favourite out of all flavours.

In regards to the flavoured versions, it must be said that they are certainly sweet. My favourite was Mixed Berry, but I the Apple & Lime was very nice, too. The latter was more punchy and acidic, which certainly goes well with green drinks.

Complete Green Taste Review

On the opposite hand, I thought that the Unflavoured version was not as tasty. In my opinion, the pumpkin protein gives it a strong seed (pumpkin seed) taste that doesn’t blend very well with the rest. Unfortunately, there are better unflavoured options out there.

Price & Shipping

Besides the taste, the pricing of the green powders is usually one of the most important factors. In that regards, Bulk Powders has always been a very affordable option.

Nonetheless, the exact price per serving will depend on the size of the bag you opt for:

  • 100g bag (11 servings): £0.82/serving – £8.99/bag
  • 500g bag (55 servings): £0.58/serving – £31.99/bag
  • 1kg bag (110 servings: £0.58/serving – £54.99/bag
Complete Greens bags sizes
There are 3 different sizes: 100g, 500g and 1kg. These are the old bags (before rebranding), but the same product as the current one.

Pro-tip: There are usually good discounts on their site, above 40% most of the time. Search for Bulk Powder deals before buying!

As far as shipping is concerned, Bulk Powders only ships to Europe and the UK. In the UK, you can get next day delivery if you order before 9pm!

Verdict

When taken everything learnt in this Complete Greens review into consideration, I must say that I end up with mix feelings. Despite the fact that Complete Greens are affordable and have good taste; I feel that it could benefit from having more greens.

In fact, even if I believe that simple is often best (even in green powders), the addition of bilberry, beet root or grapeseeed – to mention a few- would be welcome.

Furthermore, I believe that much of this powder is taken by pumpkin protein, instead of more beneficial vegetables or mushrooms (more nutritious).

Nonetheless, if you are in a budget, or just looking for a simple greens powder; Complete Greens will suit you perfectly. Make sure to avoid Unflavoured, though.
