The have added:
So what’s in them?
None of the shakes have artificial ingredients.
The vanilla plant protein ingredients are:
Pea Protein Isolate, Xylitol, Hemp Protein, Natural Flavouring,
Golden Flaxseed, Potassium Gluconate, Calcium Carbonate, Thickener: Guar Gum,
Magnesium Bisglycinate, B Vitamin Complex (See Table), Vitamin D3 (as Cholecalceferol),
Iron (as Ferrous Fumerate), Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid), Sweetener (from Natural Sources): Steviol Glycosides,
Emulsifier: Sunflower Lecithin, Zinc Gluconate.
The cocoa version simply has added cocoa powder.
The whey versions are pretty much the same, but with whey isolate instead of pea and hemp protein.
It was a discovery box of plant protein sachets I tried though – 7 single serving sachets of vanilla and chocolate plant based protein all packaed in recylable, biodegradable or compostable packaging.
I don’t often actually have ‘shakes’, to be honest – I prefer to eat my protein powder – it’s more filling for a personal as small as me who has the calorie needs of a mouse.
But I do when reviewing shakes – with water, in a blender, no added anything, so it’s a fair trial.
Whey shakes tend to turn out great, but vegan ones are a real mixed back in my experience, with some absolutely inedibly gross, and some moorishly delicious.
These definitely fared on the latter end of the spectrum, and came out really well in a protein pancake, and protein porridge I made as a lazy ‘missed supper’ evening sustencance after getting home too late for a big meal after driving back from visiting my Dad during the kids’ half term holiday.
What about cost?
At £36.97 for a 700g bag they’re definitely on the more expensive end when it comes to protein shakes but you do tend to get what you pay for. That’s why teh discovery box is a great option first – 7 sachets for £12.97 you can try them without committing so much.
