Answer:
There's a 1 star review from this year (2019) of their Sport version that said it tested high in heavy metals:

I don't trust Garden of Life brand anymore after Nestle bought it. Not only are the ingredients suspect, there's a lot less volume of powder in the canister than there used to be - total ripoff, and shows no respect for the customer. Read the critical reviews. Nestle destroyed what was once a great brand. see less

It is not clear where their ingredients are sourced from but according to their website, they set a great standard for testing all products for pathogens, microbes, metals, etc. http://www.gardenoflife.com/Our-Company/Good-Manufacturing-Practices.aspx If this link doesn't show up, you can find this information on thei… see more It is not clear where their ingredients are sourced from but according to their website, they set a great standard for testing all products for pathogens, microbes, metals, etc. http://www.gardenoflife.com/Our-Company/Good-Manufacturing-Practices.aspx If this link doesn't show up, you can find this information on their website about all the things they test for. I would not be concerned if anything came from China with the extensive testing they do. They once recalled a multivitaming because it came in contact with a soy protein and those sensitive to soy could have had a reaction. I would say that was a pretty good concern and they tackled it. Compared to other companies out there, I wouldn't hesitate to use GOL. Why don't you call them and ask? see less It is not clear where their ingredients are sourced from but according to their website, they set a great standard for testing all products for pathogens, microbes, metals, etc. http://www.gardenoflife.com/Our-Company/Good-Manufacturing-Practices.aspx If this link doesn't show up, you can find this information on their website about all the things they test for.

Answer:
No, that's normal. Mine also smells like Play-Doh to me. I suspect that's just the bean-y proteins in it. It doesn't bother me. Then again, I was one of those kids who used to eat Play-Doh. LOL I usually mix it half-and-half with chocolate powder of another brand and add stuff like banana, yogurt, whatever I happen to … see more No, that's normal. Mine also smells like Play-Doh to me. I suspect that's just the bean-y proteins in it. It doesn't bother me. Then again, I was one of those kids who used to eat Play-Doh. LOL I usually mix it half-and-half with chocolate powder of another brand and add stuff like banana, yogurt, whatever I happen to feel like. By the time I'm done fixing it up, it tastes fine to me. There's really no protein powder that isn't going to have some taste issue or another, whether it's too sweet or too grainy or leaves an aftertaste or whatever. It would be nice if everything nutritious tasted like cake and cookies and ice cream, but that ain't the way it works, unfortunately. As a vegetarian, I'm just glad I have options like this at all. see less No, that's normal. Mine also smells like Play-Doh to me. I suspect that's just the bean-y proteins in it.

Answer:
Yes you can use a blender bottle to mix this up with liquid. Although, it is MUCH better when you use a blender because this powder can get pretty thick. Add some frozen berries, maybe a banana as well, and some almond milk and its sooooo goood and really quick to make.
