So far I have managed to try several different products from The Protein Works. Some of them that I bought myself, some of them that I was good at. They certainly don’t disappoint on the flavor. So if you are looking for delicious tasting protein powders and shakes, this brand is for you. Here are more details on the products I have tried:
Protein Works Diet Meal Replacement Review
Personally, I am not a fan of shakes instead of a healthy meal because it is better for your body to eat properly. However, I know that this type of product is really handy, especially if you are really busy and don’t have time for healthy meals. I actually find myself in this situation sometimes as a busy mom and always want to lose weight, I was happy to try Diet Meal Replacement Extreme which is one of The Protein Works best sellers.
I tried the millionaire shortbread flavor and can say it’s really delicious, totally delicious! I couldn’t ask for a better flavor for my shake.
To prepare the shake, you need to add 60 g (1.5 scoops) of powder to 400 ml of water or milk. Ideally you would use a shaker bottle as it makes things a lot easier, but I couldn’t find my shaker bottle anywhere so I just used a tall glass instead and a whisk. This way I managed to get rid of most of the lumps and make a delicious “drink” with little foam on top.
1.5 scoops sounded like a lot to me, but it’s actually only 200 kcal, which isn’t much for a meal.
The shake is not as thick as I expected but it is quite satisfactory.
I still have the desire to bite into something after drinking it but I’m no longer hungry and hungry for at least 2.5 hours after taking it.
From the recommended serving size, you will get the following nutrients and vitamins:
- 24 g of protein
- 6 g of fiber
- 2.7 g fat
- 0.7g sugar
- Mixture of vitamins and minerals: Potassium citrate, sodium chloride, potassium dihydrogen phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, heavy magnesium oxide, vitamin C, zinc gluconate, ferric pyrophosphate, vitamin E acetate, potassium iodide, vitamin B3, sodium selenite, vitamin A acetate , vitamin B5, copper gluconate, manganese sulfate monohydrate, D-biotin, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Folic acid
From the above, you can quickly see that Diet Meal Replacement Extreme is really high in protein and low in fat and sugar.
The protein comes from different sources: soy, whey protein isolate and micellar casein. None of these ingredients appear to be organic, which I would prefer.
To make it sweet, a sucralose sweetener is used and in my opinion the sweetness is just perfect – not too sweet or bitter. However, I would prefer a more natural sweetener such as stevia to be used.
The blend also contains green tea extract extract which helps speed up metabolism and burn fat.
The final verdict
I think as a meal replacement for people who want to lose weight, this product works great. The high protein and fiber content in this shake will occupy your stomach for a while. Not only that, it will boost your metabolism, helping you shed those pounds faster.
The taste is also great and if you want you can also try other flavors like Caramel Latte and Cookies ‘n’ Cream (there are 16 flavors to choose from).
I’m actually not surprised that this product has so many positive reviews online – what customers are saying is exactly what I’ve experienced.
Overall this is a great product, the only thing that could be improved is to use organic ingredients and natural sweeteners instead of artificial ones.
Ridiculous review of vegan protein bars
Over the years, I have tried many types of protein bars so I get a feel for their taste and texture you can expect. But The Protein Works vegan protein bars are totally different. I have never tried anything like this before. They are absolutely delicious and they are not sweet or with an odd texture.
I tried two flavors that are new for this year: Triple Chocolate Brownie and Crunchy Chocolate Cookie. At first I preferred the flavor of the cookies but then I was able to like them both. There is a bit of crunch in the cookie which is lovely. The flavor of chocolate is sweet and so rich and satisfying.
Both flavors weigh in at just under 200 kcal, which is quite standard for protein bars.
In terms of ingredients, they both contain a blend of protein (soy and pea protein) and soy protein nuggets. There is 15g of protein in one bar, which is plenty and will help you meet your protein needs on days when your body needs more protein.
I really like that these vegan bars are naturally sweetened with xylitol and stevia although maltitol (artificial sweetener) is also used for a layer of caramel. Because sweeteners are used, these bars are low in sugar.
These bars also contain green tea extract which has several health benefits and can help with weight loss.
Another good thing about these bars is their high fiber content (7.2g per bar). Considering that we should all be eating at least 30g of fiber per day, this is definitely a significant amount (important for healthy digestion!).
The final verdict
These are really tasty vegan protein bars that I’m happy to recommend if taste is important to you.
As with other Protein Works products, I would prefer if at least some of the ingredients were organic (soy), but at least natural sweeteners are used to sweeten things up although you will also find maltitol (artificial sweetener) there.
Overall, there are still a lot of good things about these vegan protein bars – low in sugar, high in fiber, high in protein, and containing metabolism-boosting green tea extract. Plus, they’re palm oil free and contain no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. I would say, give them a try and I think you will definitely like them.
Vegan Wondershake Review
The Protein Works Vegan Wondershake Protein Powder was created to taste like a dairy shake and is a relatively new product.
I received the Double Chocolate flavor and cannot complain about the taste. It’s rich and perfectly sweet and oh, so satisfying. It is totally delicious.
One scoop (25g) provides 21g of protein, which is pretty typical for a shake like this.
But I was surprised to see that there are only 89 calories per serving. It’s really good for people who are trying to lose weight by reducing their calorie intake and exercising.
Despite the low calorie count, this shake is really filling and if all you have is that you won’t go hungry for hours.
In terms of ingredients, a special blend of four protein sources is used (peas, brown rice, hemp and soybeans). This is a premium blend with the perfect balance of vegan protein. The shake is low in fat, low in sugar, and sweetened with sucrose (artificial sweetener).
Vegan Wondershake is nothing like any vegan protein powder I’ve tried. It’s really really good, the only thing that disappoints is the use of sucralose to sweeten it. I would prefer the sweetener to be natural, not artificial.
Other products from The Protein Works that I have tried:
- Vegan Protein Powder (Silk Chocolate) – Loved this one, very good flavor and way better than some other vegan protein powders. What sets it apart from other similar products is the addition of digestive enzymes and what’s even more important – it contains five different protein sources to help you get all the amino acids your body needs.
- Pea and brown rice protein powders – I tried these two different protein powders when looking for ways to add more protein to my diet. These are of good quality and perfect in smoothies. I used to add brown rice protein to my porridge, which helped me feel fuller for longer, but now I know it doesn’t contain all the amino acids so I prefer to mix them up. things or buy ready-made mixtures.
- Superfood Bites – they are a tasty and nutritious snack made with nuts, dried fruits and oats. Perfect for on the go. They are 100% vegan and I am happy to recommend them.
The Protein Works – Final Verdict
After testing several products from The Protein Works, I can easily tell that they still deliver flavor. When it comes to flavor, they’re better than any other protein brand I’ve tried (and I’ve tried several).
You can only expect to find top quality ingredients in their products, carefully selected and tested to make sure they are the best.
Although their products are not the cheapest, keep in mind that you will get a discount once you have accumulated enough reward points (also by referring your friends and family).
And let’s not forget their lifetime guarantee that no one offers!
A negative point is that while The Protein Works continues to bring innovative products to the market, they are a bit behind when it comes to the use of organic ingredients and natural sweeteners.
Ideally, they would come up with more naturally sweet products, but as they are always reviewing their formulas, I’m sure that’s something to look forward to in the future.
