I got another batch of spirulina, the first one was not organic. This one is.

 

The difference in taste is HUGE! The non organic kinda tasted like the ocean (if that makes sense) and the organic one tastes (sorry for the blunt description, but) like... poop! Or, it tastes like how a dirty horse or dirty elephant smells or something. I can't get over it. Is it supposed to taste that bad? This batch is really deep, dark green. the other one was not this rich a green color. I ordered it from bulkherbstore.com, if that helps.

I wonder if the other one was heat processed and the new one you got isn't?
