"I received my order on 1/8/03. I decided to try the Absorb Plus that day because every-time I eat solid foods I end up in excruciating pain. My doctor has decided that I should stay on an elemental diet for now until I see a GI specialist on the 21st of January. The shake mixed up easily with no clumps, I used a blender because I added flax oil to it. I was very surprised that it tasted good. I have tried other elemental products only to decide that I couldn't stay on an elemental diet because I couldn't drink the stuff. I am very pleased with the ease of preparation of your product and the taste. My favorite flavor is the French Vanilla."
