Well most have all the grasses, but I agree about the bee pollen, royal jelly, licorice, and soy sprouts, and in addition echanacia.
These are substances that you either do not want to consume on a daily basis (licorice) or have been known to cause allergies in people who take for too long (echanacia, bee pollen).
Emerald is a good product, but it has extras like ginseng and astragalus which again may not be great for everyone every day. It also has no vegetable blend or algae.
Unfortunately I don't get commission for garden of life products, but their greens super food is the best product I have used.
It has stevia in it so it does not taste bad.
