    Just to put my couple cents in the conversation, I take orange triad pills and I have a tub of the powdered version. I wasn't going to use the powder till later but this thread made me crack it open to try. It's actually not bad at all. It's not too sweet and taste like it should, orange. Pills are more convenient most of the time but I actually think I'll still order the powder on and off because I like it.

    I was interested in moving to a powdered multi but I have to consider that I already use many powders (pwo, sometimes a intra and 2 or 3 shakes a day) so maybe pill (not tabs) are the best option for me altough powder should have a very strong motif: price

    The presumption that powder multi's are being made because of the Australian market may not be the exact reason. True that powders are classified as 'food supplements' so go through the australian food agency for compliance as opposed to the government puppets the TGA that require a full analysis of pill/tablet supplement ingredients + labels before providing a listed number. Then a tab/pill product would require very large sales as a minimum run could be 5000/10000 of 1 pill product.

    So, the only products certified in pills are normally weight loss. As sales in that area are normally very large.

    From the 3 companies listed from the OP only 1 brand is imported to Australia and that's Gaspari Anavite which has been a flop in sales since it's change over from tablets.

    No other multi vitamin in powder is imported to Australia (that i'm aware of) from a wholesaler.

    Is it possible it's much cheaper for brands to run powder supplements and not pay for the extra costs of making pills or tablets?

    What about sales in America? are powders leading the way over pills?

    All of the products are literally brand new in the past couple of months, so I couldn't tell you how sales have been.

    I completely agree, I have greens voluntarily out of sheer taste. But that may just be because of how my parents raised me and the palette I developed.
    Not me. I grew up on hot pockets, pizza bites, chef boyardee, etc. My parents house never had veggies in it besides corn and lettuce. Never was forced to eat veggies or even exposed to them. As an adult now trying to increase my intake of greens I find it difficult. I guess it is an aquired taste that I havent really aquired yet. Any veggies I eat I have to consciously force myself to eat

    not an acquired taste, rather an acquired mindset
    your story/lack of dietary intake is the same as half of this country..serious epidemic of ppl not consuming any veggies, let alone enough of them
    don't wait around to start "liking" and enjoying green veggies/veggies in general; simply make a habit to place in your meals every day
    do it long enough, it becomes habit you don't have to consciously remember..then that is how you build "acquired taste" if it is gonna happen -- no guarantee that you will ever LIKE it, some ppl simply never will

    I'm not a huge vege fan, but I eat alot of them. Baby peas i love, salads and a few other things but to make ones i dont like bareable, i have to get create.

    I find all in one meals help a lot. Instead of having 3 components on a dish,mix them up and have 1 combined meal.

    I fry my veges as well in a little bit of salt and herbs and mix in chicken and a sauce.

    Add veges to omeletes or shakes; add spinach to shakes via ice cubes.

    Make pea puree or pimpkin puree to foods.

    I have a salad (lettuce usually romaine or kale, tomato, cucumber, capsaicum, grated whole carrot, avacado, olive oil, watercress) most days in a wrap and then other veges for dinner in a stirfry.

    Same here. I don't always fry my vegetables, but mix them with meat, spices, and sauce (rice as well for higher carb meals).

    Hmm... perhaps we should start a non veggie lovers recipe thread? Get tips on how to increase veggie intake by sneaking them into meals

    jasmine or basmati rice (or hell any kind of rice for that matter) is excellent with some lightly cooked green peppers chopped & added in

    Agreed fully.

    All coloured peppers go down well with rice. Basmati rice + peppers + lemon chicken is a great, cheap meal.

    Yeah like slice up some chicken, add juice and zest from a lemon and cook. Often i'll wrap sliced chicken in tinfoil with those and bake then fry it off with ginger and more lemon lol.

    Or make a sauce with a lemon base and add to a stirfry

    ^^ that's the best way to do lemon chicken for sure
    the generic version would be to use lemon pepper and maybe a squirt of lemon juice

    Lemon is not a favorite ingredient of mine. I think all restaurants put too much lemon on too many dishes.
    When I eat seafood, I like to taste the seafood, not lemon. My wife is tired of hearing about it too. I've tried to conform to the lemon love, but I guess I am a minority on that front.

    Oh with seafood definitely, lots of places cover up their bland, non-fresh seafood with extreme amounts of lemon and butter.

    I have a theory the phenomenon some refer to as "adrenal fatigue" is overtraining and nutrient deficiencies.

    Our society is severely malnourished in a caloric positive state with exercise at an all time high...what a paradox

    Just another route. Some people hate swallowing big tablets...such as myself. I use the Now ADAM capsules over tablets. I can handle the Opti-Men tablets and thats my limit

    Also, once one company puts out a product, companies who bank of others ideas quickly copy just in case its a good idea

    Alphamine was the first marketed powdered fat burner, now everyone sells one, and its considered a new category at major supplement retailers

    Well you see PES released powder and it was so good that Australia changed their regulations.

    Next everyone started doing powders and vitamins were just the next logical progression in this trendy industry.

    Additionally, ANIMAL has had 30 years of the top vitamin pak. It's a training pak for the record not your run of the gun multivitamin.

    So back to the story, CL said well different' strokes' for different' folks' and put out powder.

    Animal Pak is just Newbie bait. Newbs get excited over the pictures of the roided up guys in the animal advertisements. Animal Pak is a joke.

    Animal Pak is a joke? Mmmm, don't know if I can agree with that statement/opinion. It may not be super stellar, but it's certainly not a joke either. Holding a grudge maybe?
