Meal Replacement NZ

NZ Protein's Meal Replacement Shake is a superfood blend and is a formulated meal or smoothie booster.

A formulated meal is a legal term for a product that contains not only protein but fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. This differs from a protein shake which just typically provides protein.

It can therefore be used at any time of the day to replace meals.

Ours is Better

Our Meal Replacement Shake (MRP) is of much higher quality than other MRPs available on the market because the ingredients used are better.

NZProtein's MRP contains quality protein from hemp, fats from cacao, nuts and seeds, and carbohydrates from green bananas.

Here's how it compares:

Legal Product Type

Meal Replacement Shake.

Protein Source, Typical

Organic hemp protein.

Hemp is a superfood. It's a rich source of protein, essential omega fatty acids, dietary fibre, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-nutrients that can benefit your health.

It's slower digesting to provide a sustained release of protein.

It's plant based and vegan too.

Whey protein.

Don't get us wrong - whey is amazing and we stock the grass fed type from NZ which is the best of the best.

For a meal replacement however - whey is fast digesting, not vegan, and natural lactose can cause some to experience feelings of bloat.

This is nit-picky though. The real clincher is in the fat and carbs below.

Fat Source, Typical

Hemp powder, cacao nibs, almonds, linseed and sunflower seeds.

All of the above are superfoods and each serve of our MRP has over 5 grams of essential fatty acids.

Vegetable oils.

You know, the kind that we get told to avoid. The kind that are high in omega 6 fatty acids and are polyunsaturated, meaning that they can break down easily to form harmful compounds.

Carbohydrate Source, Typical

Green banana flour.

Another superfood due to its resistant starch - a type of fermentable fibre, which means that it isn't broken down and converted to sugar.

It's good for blood sugar levels, is diabetic friendly, aids in digestion due to the prebiotic fibre, and is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Maltodextrin.

Maltodextrin is cheap to produce and is often used as a filler in processed foods.

It's higher on the glycemic index scale (GI) than regular sugar. It can spike blood sugar levels after consumption so may be useful after intensive exercise, but not during the day as a meal.

Usage

Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-2 servings daily as meals. MRPs aren't to totally replace your diet or be used as a sole source of nutrition.

Speed of Digestion

Slower digesting for a sustained energy release.

Slower may be more beneficial as this product is designed to be able to replace meals.

Fast digesting.

May not be as beneficial as slower digesting sources.

Taste

Typical for superfood sources. Whey and maltodextrin type MRPs will taste the best, but the banana chocolate nib flavour is pleasant.

Whey and maltodextrin taste the best.

Mix three heaped scoops (50g) in 500ml of chilled water, milk or into a smoothie.

I have struggled to find a protein that I can enjoy as well as consuming multiple healthy nutrients, in a protein shake! I struggle with IBS and am dairy intolerant, this protein only made me feel better, more active and alive ! Flavour is great ! Also works well as an ice cream with frozen bananas. Would highly recommend! Please bring out more flavours ! NZPROTEIN REPLY: thank you! We'll consider more flavours in future if demand grows. Note that due to the superfoods in this product the flavours don't all work and can be a bit limited.

I like the cacao in it and grain texture. I prefer a ripe tasting banana to the green banana. I found the green taste rather strong. Excellent communication and quick delivery! Especially to rural address.

I really like the taste, some may be put off by the texture (crunchy bits), but on the whole I was impressed.

Fantastic !
Tried out this new product for breakfast, it tastes wonderful.
I was never keen on breakfast, but now look forward to my next morning shake !
Also, I only felt like eating something 4 hours after my shake, really fueled me up.
Hope this gets popular and there may be more flavor to choose
