Neutral - v2.5
The wide variety of opinion on taste of a certain shake, has steered us in the direction of a more neutral tasting mix. One that is easy to drink, is not too sweet or too salt, not too bitter or too savory, does not have any powerful flavors or smells.
Actually something that quite resembles milk, without the lactose of course.
The Neutral formula is developed by gathering information from customers that have been consuming meal replacements for a larger part of their diet the last few years.
Because of the bland taste, it can be consumed with little effort, which ensures the intake of adequate and optimal nutrition causing a satiety for many hours.
Occasionally adding a favourite fruit, a spoon of cocoa powder or a can of (nut) milk will ensure some variety.
While developing this formula we kept to the following basic principles we maintain:
- Every meal is within the dietary advises of the EFSA for a healthy and optimal diet.
- The mix contains no added sugars, only complex carbohydrates
- The protein levels are high, come from a variety of sources providing a complete amino-acid profile and high bio-availability.
- Omega 3 fats and fiber levels are as recommended by the EFSA.
One bag contains 12 meals of 400 kcal and weighs 1200 gram per bag.
