Smell and Taste? Meiji Amino Collagen Powder Review
What is the best way to take Meiji Amino Collagen?Here’s the question everyone who considers taking collagen powder has once – What is the best way to take it? I mixed Meiji Amino Collagen Powder with both cold and hot coffee to compare the taste and smell.
Mixing into cold drinks...I wondered if the collagen powder can easily dissolve into cold drinks. But the result: the fine collagen powder dissolves well in cold drinks!I wouldn't have realized that there was a slight smell unless I tried to smell it over the cup.
Mixing with hot drinks...Then, next is hot coffee. As I expected, it was easy to mix it with hot coffee.I felt the smell was a little bit stronger with hot coffee.
What about the taste? Does Meiji Amino Collagen affect it?But there was no difference between the tastes of cold and hot coffee. If you compare the taste between non-collagen coffee and collagen-coffee, you won’t notice the difference of the taste too.Personally, I noticed the smell when I added the collagen powder to coffee and I felt coffee tasted a little bit oily with collagen powder. I have read that collagen powder can have the smell especially when hot water or drink is added.In my opinion, I noticed the smell but I don’t mind when I mix it something like protein shake or smoothie because those beverage already has creamy smell or tastes. In fact in some reviews from Japanese long-term consumers, it is recommended to use collagen for cooking such as soup.The good points is it can be used with different types of food or beverage, so you can continue it for long term. By the way, the refill pack is available in 214g, which is about for 30 days. The can type comes with a spoon which can major 7g of the powder, the exact amount to intake.Since the refill pack doesn't include the spoon, we recommend you to get the can type for the first purchase!
