Texas Superfood has three categories of superfoods listed on the label. These categories are Fruits, Vegetables and Algae & Grasses.
There are approximately 60 different superfood ingredients in these three categories and also included are a handful of herbs.
There’s nothing terribly remarkable about the list of superfoods. They are good ingredients, loaded with health benefits. However, there are a couple of significant red flags.
One of the major concerns with the superfoods is that there’s no way of knowing how much of each ingredient you are ingesting. They are simply broken down by either “fruits”, “vegetables” or “algae or grasses”.
The second concern we have is that the label does not provide the source of the ingredients. Are they vegetable powders? Juice extracts? Juice extracts, though rare, provide the highest density of phytonutrients.
Lastly, the total amount of superfoods you are getting in each serving is far lower than most superfood green drinks we’ve reviewed. One serving is 2 teaspoons or 10 grams. This formula also has digestive enzymes listed on the label but again, we have no way of knowing what percentage of the 10 grams is digestive enzymes and therefore, we don’t know how many grams of superfoods you are getting per serving. Frustrating.
SUPERFOODS SCORE: 6.1
Outside of the superfoods, there really is not much more to this formula. Texas Superfood has a digestive enzyme panel, but as stated above, we don’t know the potencies of the enzymes. There are no probiotics in the formula, which is disappointing. The vast majority of superfood green drinks have probiotics. There is very little protein and very little nutrient-dense calories per serving.
NUTRITIONAL PANEL SCORE: 4.2
Texas Superfood tastes pretty decent. It’s somewhat neutral with a slight algae taste. There’s not a lot of green chlorophyll and apparently no vegetable juice extracts in this product. Typically, the healthier a green drink is the stronger it tastes.
Texas Superfood should not alienate customers based purely on taste. For people who struggle with the taste of green drink powders, try making a green drink smoothie by mixing the powder with fresh fruit, organic juices, and other all-natural ingredients. By doing this, you won’t even taste the powder and you will have an excellent meal replacement smoothie!
TASTE SCORE: 7.6
Value is determined by taking the total amount of nutrition per serving and dividing that by the total cost of the product. This is not an exact science but when you get more comfortable examining and understanding labels, it becomes second nature to quickly derive a value.
Texas Superfood suffers in terms of value. The total amount of nutrition you are ingesting per serving is 10 grams. As stated earlier, there’s no way of knowing how much of this is pure superfoods. There’s no way of knowing how much of each superfood you are getting.
Let’s assume that the digestive enzymes represent a small amount of the 10 grams and that each serving provides almost 10 grams of superfoods. The total cost for the 180-gram canister of Texas Superfood is $79.95. If each serving is approximately 10 grams then there’s roughly 18 servings per canister. That breaks down to $4.44 per serving!
Read all the reviews on this site and you will discover that Texas Superfood holds the distinction of being the most expensive superfood supplement we’ve reviewed. It’s even more expensive than Shakeology and that’s saying something!
Texas Superfood is not really a good value when compared to other green drink powders.
VALUE SCORE: 3.0
PROS & CONS
- Tastes decent for a green drink
- Has approximately 60 different superfood ingredients
- Extremely low potencies
- Does not disclose any of the amounts-per-ingredient
- At over $4 per serving is the most expensive superfood drink we’ve reviewed
TEXAS SUPERFOOD REVIEW – SUMMARY
Texas Superfood Powder seems to be a market-driven product that holds very little overall value when compared to the many other quality green drinks in the marketplace.
No matter what a company claims, the proof is always in the label… what’s genuinely in the bottle. Texas Superfood Powder is over $4 per serving. More expensive than Living Fuel Super Greens and more expensive than Shakoelogy.
That’s like a Chevy Cobalt having a higher sticker price than a Mercedes AMG.
Hopefully, this Texas Superfood Powder Review has been helpful.

I’m Tyler Rose. I’ll be doing most of the writing on this site. I’ve been researching supplements and been involved in the “alternative health world” for almost a decade and a half.
My favorite supplements are undoubtedly superfood green drink powders. Why? Because if you find a good one -and one that you can tolerate the taste – superfood drinks are the most comprehensive supplement you can take. They are loaded with healthy phytonutrients from real, dark green, leafy vegetables and algae.
This site is devoted to green drink powder supplements and the ingredients that are often found in them. I’ve been taking these type of supplements since 2001 and they have become a staple of my diet. They should become a staple of yours as well.
