Does that make sense? Here's the kicker - I've been off sugar for over a year, so anything sweeter than a grape or a banana is too sweet for me. The worst is Tropeaka. Everyday,Every Morning "I take the mocha flavored nutritional shake, every morning. By Mario on Saturday, January 10, Convenient and good for you.
Micellar casein actually forms large curds in the stomach that take a fairly long time to be digested. When mixed with the other types of proteins here, this is a good thing, as it allows for a slower and more gradual release of protein as the other proteins are consumed more quickly for immediate muscle recovery needs. This also has a range of other benefits, such as appetite suppression and improved mineral absorption.
Micellar casein is also the only type of protein to have anticatabolic properties, putting the body in the state where muscle tissue is being repaired and grown rather than broken down.
Milk protein isolate is actually a mixture of both casein and whey, with a significantly higher amount of casein content. Like whey protein isolate, however, it has been highly purified so that almost nothing but the protein remains.
This provides a mix of the faster-digesting whey and the slower-digesting casein to space out protein intake over time. Egg albumen is just a fancy name for the white part of the egg.
Of course, in a supplement it has been dried and converted to a powder form. Egg whites are a strong source of protein and also contain a small amount of potassium and magnesium. They are naturally free of carbohydrates and are almost completely devoid of fat. This makes them a natural choice for a protein supplement, though they are actually relatively rarely used in these products as they are more expensive than standard whey.
All of the casein protein content in this blend actually provides a natural creamy mouthfeel. But some non-dairy creamer ingredients have also been added to further improve texture and to thicken the mixture when it is dissolved in water. The non-dairy creamer mix here is composed of sunflower oil, sodium caseinate, dipotassium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, soy lecithin and tocopherols. The label of the vanilla flavor shows a picture of an ice cream cone as this is the general texture and mouthfeel that all of these thickening agents plus the casein are intended to replicate when the powder is mixed with an ideal amount of water!
These are added to select flavors to further sweeten the mixture and add an even more appealing texture. These may provide a bit of controversy, as some people want their protein powders to be flavored only with zero-calorie sweeteners. Depending on the flavor, Pro Jym only has two to three grams of sugar per serving, however.
So it is very unlikely to be a diet buster for those who are working out regularly, and it provides a unique flavor that can make the daily protein shake less of a chore to get down. These are the two primary sweeteners used in this product. Neither adds any carbohydrates or calories to the mix. Sucralose is an artificial sweetener that is created from sucrose, or natural sugar, but is different in that it passes through the body without being broken down.
Acesulfame potassium is also artificial and is often blended with sucralose as they mask each other's aftertaste. Sucralose is perhaps better known by the trade name Splenda, while acesulfame potassium is sold as Ace-K or Sweet One. Certain flavors may also contain cocoa powder.
While cocoa powder itself does not contain any sugar, it is very palatable when mixed with a sweetener, as any fan of chocolate can tell you!
In addition to flavor, however, cocoa powder also has a wide range of beneficial compounds. Among these are antioxidants and natural energy stimulants. Anyone who is looking to put on significant amounts of muscle will find it virtually necessary to take a protein supplement like this one. Bodybuilders generally need about double the daily protein intake of the average sedentary person, and it's very difficult to get that amount from diet alone without also taking in an excess of carbohydrates and fat.
A protein powder provides the quality protein without any excess calories, is very simple to prepare and use, and is generally more affordable and less time-consuming than obtaining and cooking an equivalent protein amount that is equally rich in all the necessary amino acids. The timing of protein ingestion is also key, with best muscle support coming when it is gradually ingested throughout the workout, and a protein liquid is by far the most suitable form for this purpose.
The blend of different protein types also helps to keep the system supplied with protein over a period of up to eight hours. This keeps the protein available throughout the entire process of tearing the muscles with exercise and then recovering and rebuilding them afterward. Slow-releasing casein continues to digest and be released overnight, when the bulk of the muscle repair work and growth is accomplished.
The other major advantage of the protein blend used here is that the lactose content is extremely small, so those that have an intolerance will very likely be able to use this product without any issues. One of the truly unique advantages of Pro Jym is that you know exactly what you're getting, and that's nothing but high-quality protein.
Protein spiking, or the adding of nitrogen to fool tests into recording the presence of more protein than is actually there, has been an ongoing issue in the supplement world. With a completely open label, we not only know that each dose contains absolutely nothing but dietary protein and flavoring, but we know the specific macros for each type of protein that is in the blend.
This is an unusually detailed amount of information for a protein supplement label. JYM Supplement Science sells its products on the strength of Jim Stoppani's personal involvement and expertise in the sports nutrition field. Jim claims that he takes his own supplements and that he will personally answer any questions anyone may have about them.
However, no specific independent testing is mentioned on the bottle or in any of the marketing materials for Pro Jym. The product rated very high in nutritional content and product purity, and had higher than average ratings in label accuracy and projected efficacy, but got a low rating in the product safety category.
The low safety rating was based on the inclusion of acesulfame potassium and sucralose as sweeteners, which Labdoor has listed as a potential cancer risk though the FDA regards them as safe for consumption. On the positive side, Labdoor found that the product exactly met its label claims of having 24 grams per serving of pure dietary protein. JYM Supplement Science is a bit unique in this area in that their founder acts as his own testimonial, both directly participating in the creation of and taking his own supplements.
Jim Stoppani has certainly earned considerable regard for his many accomplishments in the fitness world. Unlike other supplement companies, JYM Supplement Science does not have sponsored athletes that use their product. The company won Bodybuilding. Pro Jym was named to Bodybuilding. Many user testimonials and positive reviews can also be found sprinkled around the Web.

This can vary with temporary sales and coupons, however. JYM Supplement Science's Pro Jym is a protein supplement that is intended to support muscle development and to deliver essential dietary amino acids in a highly bioavailable form. A blend of four different protein types is employed to extend the release of protein over a period of seven to eight hours after ingestion. The product does not have any amino acid filler content, it consists only of dietary protein and flavorings.

I was thinking about taking a separate supplement for my hair and nails but with this particular protein powder I don't have to!!
I take it along in my Blender Bottle Prostack to work every morning for breakfast because I don't like eating too early.
Its got 6 servings of veggies and also has probiotics! If you're thinking this powder is more expensive than regular powders, it has so many things others don't, even fibre! For me it's totally worth it! I love how it turns green when you mix it! My hands down favourite???? My energy levels have noticeable improved and my nails have never been this healthy and strong.
Likely due to the large amount of Biotin in this product. I find that the shake goes very well with almond milk and a banana or blueberries. Overall, I would highly recommend this product as a great and easy meal replacement that is packed with nutritious value. Vitamart's quick delivery time - always with a personalized note - is also fabulous. I have not found this product anywhere else for a better value.
How did you use it?: I have 2 shakes a day and have lost a lot of weight and feel much better. I also add kale, berries, ground flaxseed and chia seeds for additional nutrition etc I am now addicted to my shakes and will keep taking it.
I usually have it before or after a workout and it keeps me energized. I have tried a few flavors: After Exercise,Everyday "Was very disappointed with the taste and the quality of the powder. It did not mix well at all and it had that grainy feel to it" Would you buy this product again? And I have tried many. The worst is Tropeaka. It is gritty and tastes awful! Everyday "Chocolate flavor tastes good on its own, but I add a scoop of my chocolate whey protein powder for improving the taste and boosting my protein, so my smoothie becomes a meal replacement.
I drink 2 per day for convenience and health; I wouldn't get my essential greens if I didn't drink this smoothie. I recommend it if you would like a very quick nutritious meal replacement or snack. Mixes easily with a shaker bottle. Between Meals "My teenaged daughter makes a smoothie with the Coconut Almond Vega One almost daily to satisfy in-between meal hunger.
It tastes great yes, I've tried it too and mixes well with the fruits and nut milks she incorporates. The only downside for me is the stevia that is used as a sweetener. I don't like the aftertaste but I can live with it because the overall flavour is great.
The only other negative is that My daughter finds that the Smoothie only temporarily satisfies her hunger and she is often hungry again an hour later. We thought that a protein powder with so much protein would stave off hunger for longer. Maybe it's because the protein is veggie based and thus, metabolizes more quickly than a whey based protein powder. Every Morning "Part of my morning routine. Add a frozen banana, or frozen strawberries, and you're good to go.
By Dawn Gardy on Friday, February 3, Every Morning " times a week, I enjoy a serving of Chocolate Vega One as a meal replacement for breakfast. Tried shakeology and didn't like it. I prefer vega one over shakeology for both taste and cost.
I've only tried to chocolate so far, vanilla is up next. Every Morning "it's fine with me. Everyday,Every Morning "I take the mocha flavored nutritional shake, every morning. I usually mix it with wheat grass powder, and the taste is awesome - if you like coffee flavor. Quick, tasty and healthy. Great way to start the morning.
By Michelle on Friday, November 4, Everyday,Every Morning "I use Vega meal replacement powders at least 5 mornings a week.
I love the fact that I feel good about all the ingredients in these powders. Chocolate is my favourite, but honestly I have tried French Vanilla, Vanilla Chai, and Coconut Almond as well, and they were all good too!! To me, it's totally worth it!! Every Morning "I have to admit, that it took a couple of times before I actually started to like this product.
The first time I used it it was just with almond milk and I did not care for it. I generally use it with a blender and add some frozen fruit.
Cherries taste great with the chocolate as do bananas. I've always used either a magic bullet or a blender, or if I'm on the go a shaker cup and only ever with almond milk or coconut milk. I have a feeling it would not taste as smooth with water. Vitamart has the best prices on vega. Every Morning "I've used this product for years. It blends well with my Kefir and fruit in the morning. I'm not a breakfast person so this allows me to get going in the morning with a delish smoothie! After Exercise "I will never buy the coconut almond one.
Please do not buy it. It doesn't taste like coconut almond. I tried mixing it with other things to make it taste a bit better but it did not work lol. I will try the chooclate one next time. Everyday,Before Bed "I go to the gym every morning and I drink these smoothies every day as my dinner: My recipe is 1 scoop Vega One, 1 tbsp chia seeds, cups spinach. I would recommend Vega One to everyone.
It is so convenient and full of everything I need, and it tastes awesome. Every Morning "I would not buy this Vega product again. I find it highly overrated and not worth the money. I ended up mixing maca and collagen powder in it, as on it's own it gave me, aside from a filling aspect, no noticeable benefits. Normally I use fresh veggies and fruits and get e better boost and a real tasting product.
I found the Vega taste artificial and the texture of the shake pulpy rather than what I get with fresh produce. Everyday "I like that Vega is plant based and you don't get that powdery taste in your mouth like many additives of this sort. Everyday,Every Morning "This product is amazing in every possible way. My energy level is higher, I experience less muscles soreness than before, faster recovery time.
Taste is great and it is GMO free.. Every Morning "I mixed this with my vitamins, some frozen fruit and yogurt in my magic bullet in the morning before work and it kept me full until lunch.
It is low calorie and doesn't taste too bad. Everyday,Between Meals,Every Morning " We rarely have any issues with what flavors we pick although we do have favorites like: Berry, Vanilla Chai, French Vanilla and Natural The other flavors are okay but with what we add in our smoothies we find the taste is not as appealing. Because we are vegan and have health issues.
It is VERY important that we get an excellent product that fills our nutritional needs. Thus Vega All-In-One comes to the rescue. By Jonathan on Tuesday, January 12, Between Meals "Natural flavor tastes bad. After Exercise,Everyday "It tastes great and is very effective.
Every Morning "They changed the formula.. Now it is watery and the taste isn't there. Every Morning "taste great" Would you buy this product again?
By Doodles on Friday, October 23, Every Morning "I like the Vega brand and have used other products of theirs in the past. My biggest complaint with this product and other flavours in the Vega One Nutritional Shake line is the taste.
Almost all that I have tried with the exception of chocolate have a bad flavour with a chemically aftertaste. I bought 8 containers and I am not looking forward to finishing them. Next time I will stick with regular protein powder. After Exercise,Everyday "The gas and bloating is probably due to me being Lactose Intolerant and very sensitive to gassy foods like broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and carrots.
The price is pretty steep normally buy it when it goes on sale. Have used a lot of other products but this one seems to work and taste the best. Between Meals "I take this when I'm hungry but don't want to eat a full meal-which would make me tired.
I first tried mixing with only cold tap water and it came out tasting terrible, with chickpea as the strongest scent and a slight aftertaste of french vanilla I did BUY the vanilla one but it's barely present since the other ingredients aren't scentless. The biggest problem with my vega one is the horrible texture and mouthfeel that apparently they've improved. I don't think so! It leaves this grainy horribly scratchy feeling in the back of my throat as if I haven't chewed my food properly before swallowing.
I mixed this again with milk and strawberry Yop as well as Daily Cleanse that I also got from Vitamart and it tasted much better. I used less vega one when mixing with other stuff since I didn't want to make my shake too high in calories, but the strawberry Yop really did a GREAT job of improving the flavor.
I'm going to do that with the Natural flavor next time. Every Morning "It's a sad day in our house. We've used VO Berry in our smoothies every morning for the past 5 years. This morning I made smoothies from a new container and holy smokes, is it ever disgusting. I can understand "tweaking" a product but this new addition bears no resemblance to the old one.
It's a sad day Tastes great and you can feel the benefits of the drink within minutes of taking. I even use Vega One as a hangover cure on those fuzzy saturday mornings and it works great!
Every Morning "I first bought these shakes about a year ago and I enjoyed the French vanilla and vanilla chai flavours.
I ran out of the French vanilla and unfortunately had to buy the new flavour, which was horrible and I had to mix with my older vanilla chai to make it palatable. I am disappointed that the flavour was changed so significantly and now I will choose to find another product as all of the ratings show the flavour has gone downhill.
Everyday "I have always loved the taste of all the Vega One Nutritional Shakes and I have been taking them for a couple of years now twice a day. I tried the "new formula" Vanilla Chai and at first I was convinced there was something wrong with the tub I opened, so I opened another tub and it was the same awful taste! I have returned the two tubs I bought and am waiting for a refund.
I purchased 7 tubs of the old formula and I'm not sure what I will do when they are gone because I am afraid to try any of the other new formula tubs.
I asked Vita Mart if they had samples of the other new flavours but they never sent me any Everyday "Could barely swallow it, tastes horrible. I have not tried any flavour other than Chocolate so I can't say how it compares. Every Morning "I have been using Vega One in lieu of breakfast five days a week for approximately four years.
I had suffered from IBS like symptoms for many years with bloating and discomfort as well as acid reflux. Using Vega One as my breakfast choice mixed with water, as well as a diet of mostly fruits, vegetables, protein and grains as well as regular exercise has changed my health to the best in my life.
I credit Vega One with balancing my bacteria in my tummy and I recommend it to anyone that will listen. It just makes me feel so much better and healthier. It also assists in the maintenance of a healthy diet. However, I cannot drink it mixed with water alone, which means that I am adding additional calories to my shake routine when I use Vanilla Chai. In short, the chocolate is tolerable with water, but Vanilla Chai is just too sweet, grainy, and chalky mixed with water.
Love it blended with a spoon of peanut butter and half a banana. Everyday "I have a shake for lunch along with an apple, and a small green salad. It is very convenient, and keeps me feeling full and satisfied until dinner. After Exercise "Vega is the best vegetable based protein powder I have tried.
But I didnt really like Coconut Amlond flavour. Every Morning "Love Vega One. Always seem to feel healthier when it's part of my regular breakfast routine. My favorite flavors are Vanilla Chai and Chocolate. The Berry isn't great and the new Coconut Almond is absolutely terrible tastes medical and nothing like coconuts or almonds. Does not mix great. Recommend blending with fruit and almond milk in a Magic Bullet for a great start to the day.
Every Morning "Vega is the best vegetable based protein powder I have tried to date both in terms of flavor and cost - especially at the great price offered by Vitamart" Would you buy this product again? Everyday,Every Morning "Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a dietary supplement that you can take everyday and feel good about it.
Great with mixed frozen fruit, coconut water and almond milk. Every Morning "Vega One is the real deal. Vega One streamlined my life. Vanilla Chai is great. Chocolate and Vanilla are nice standbys. Berry is weird solo but delicious with choco protein and almond milk. Every Morning "Great value from vitamart, especially when you have a discount code.
Product itself is great, and is a well balanced shake, but we have tried 4 flavours now of the new formula and they are all a bit grainy and tough to get down Vanilla has been the best so far. I don't really expect great taste, though, from something that actually has lots of nutrients and greens, so have no problem mixing with water and chugging down.
We will keep buying as it's probably the best all in one nutritional shake if looking for plant based products. Shipping time is amazing from Vitamart, and ordering is really convenient. Typically on our doorstep in BC within days. Everyday "My problem wasn't with the product, but rather the delivery time. When I first began ordering from Vitamart, I received the product I ordered within a couple of days- literally, oftentimes in two days!
Now it takes about a week. Half the reason why I purchase from Vitamart is this unbelievable shipping time, as the same products are available down the street. Regarding the product, I don't notice any difference at all physically, but it tastes good and I assume by the ingredients that it's healthy. By Mario on Saturday, January 10, By Stephen Forbes on Tuesday, January 6, Every Morning "I've been using Vega products for probably close to 3 years now.
I use this particular product every morning, mixed with frozen fruits, and almond milk, and it tastes great. Its something I look forward too every morning! After Exercise "I really liked how this product tasted however I feel like the amount of nutrients and protein per serving is way too low.
Also it caused my acne to flare up which was definitely not expected. Everyday "Although the taste was bearable,it was not pleasant. I have found that regardless of which flavour I have tried, I suffer immense gas and bloating afterwards. Not sure what causes it, if it is the proteins or enzymes or who knows. I have used other vegan based all-in-one supplements and not had this experience. Everyday "Started with the sample-pak size just to see how I am with it.
