Almased shake is chalk-full of vitamins, minerals and protein, but that’s exactly how it’s going to taste – chalky.  Though there is a high level of protein, there is also a high level of powder, as one serving size is about two times as much as any other standard serving size.  Yes, you get 27 grams of protein, but the amount of powder you’re drinking makes it hard to disguise the taste.

Almased shake uses a soy protein base.  Ideally we like to see other forms of protein, like pea protein or whey based protein, as soy has been linked to a variety of health issues such as thyroid issues, food allergies, immune system problems, danger for pregnant or nursing women, and more.  Additionally, there are 12 grams of sugar per serving, which is higher than we’d like to see in a diet drink, as studies have shown sugar causes weight gain rather than weight loss.

Overall, this product is a great source of protein but as it contains both soy and high levels of sugar, there are better meal replacement shakes out there!
