One of the most common questions I get from people when checking out the various Shakeology flavors is… “What is difference between regular and vegan Shakeology?”
So let’s start with “What is Vegan?” Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products.
That being said…
Chocolate and Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology are both:
- dairy free
- lactose free
- soy free
Instead of animal proteins, they contain a proprietary blend of plant-based proteins that are ideal for those who wish to avoid whey or animal proteins or have soy or dairy intolerances. Vegan proteins are more easily digested than animal proteins.
Shakeology’s vegan formulas are not fortified with mineral isolates and additional vitamins, so it is ideal for those who want whole foods. The company recently introduced their new and improved formulas to make them tastier than ever, and more importantly, to make them pack an even bigger nutritional punch. As such, more cocoa has been added to the Chocolate Vegan Shakeology to make it ever more chocolatey, and the Tropical Strawberry is now even more tropical-tasting than ever with tangy-sweet guava that was added to the mix.
Smooth & Creamy on the Taste Buds
Vegan Shakeology now contains more GMO-free oat protein to the original rice and pea blend, which lends a more smooth and creamy consistency. Oat protein is rich in amino acids such as lysine, isoleucine, and leucine.
Better for Your Health
Shakeology tastes good, but it also does good for your body. The Vegan shakes contain organic agave fruit powder, a wholesome, non-GMO ingredient that adds just the right amount of sweetness. This agave is naturally extracted, which means that it uses no chemical additives of enzymes.
Shakeology has always been low in sugar, and adding agave helped lower the total sugar content and carbs. Agave contains fructose and is naturally high in inulin, a potent prebiotic fiber that supports digestive health. Together with yacon root, the new formulas support your digestive system even better.
Do you need to be a vegan to enjoy Chocolate and Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology? No! It’s good for anyone to take a break from animal proteins now and then, because plant proteins helps you:
- feel light and energetic
- reduce digestive problems
- maintain healthy weight
You don’t even have to follow a 100% vegan diet to enjoy the benefits of plant proteins either – every little bit helps. Simply replacing a single meal a day with Chocolate or Tropical Strawberry Vegan Shakeology can already deliver significant health results.
