"I like this product, esp. quantity for the price when its on sale! Other reviewers complaining about clumps..thats true! But, all you have to do is turn the container upside down occasionally and SHAKE it folks!! That practice is recommended for many supps., esp the pre workouts, or moisture works its way into the bottle and get a HORRIBLE clump!"

"The product was a mixture of smooth powder and very hard lumps (up to 1/2" in diameter). Very difficult to measure out a consistent quantity without trying to crush the lumps."

Very clumpy
 September 6, 2013
"I had used Vitacost d Ribose previously when it came in their blue an silver container and was very happy. I believe it was made by Bioenergy. It had a sugar consistency . When I no longer saw the 300gm available, I went with their Aro brand. The consistency is horrible, almost like moisture had affected the product. Its more like a powdery clump. Last time for this product. It's the first Vitacost product that I wasn't satisfied with."

"This may be a good product for the money, but it is very "clumpy" and does not mix as well as other companies' products."

"I realy like this product. Sometimes I take as a pre workout drink. Everytime I take D Ribose, my energy increases without getting jittery. The best way to describe the effects is a since of well being."
