    I love this stuff!
    By Maria from Japan on 10/05/2012
    Pros: The best flakes I've had, promptly delivered.
    Cons: Expensive overseas postage,
    Recommended: Yes
    I originally found PRL products on another site, but then that stopped, so I wanted to find another provider. I have ordered from Natural Healthy Concepts a couple of times - they are extremely efficient, and my orders have always been shipped quickly, and packaged safely.
    I think this is a top-quality product and I appreciate the plastic container. I have tried other flakes, and I simply prefer the taste of PRL's Nutritional flakes taste - it's got no bitterness.
    The latest batch seems to have finer flakes than previously - I liked the flakes, but never mind. I shall reorder.
