INGREDIENTS:
  • Pea protein

    Pea Protein is a relatively new form of protein powder which is valued for its high digestibility (90-95%), low potential for allergic responses and ability to supress the appetite.

    Pea protein has a light, flurry texture and slightly sweet taste which mixes well in solution.

  • Cranberry & rice protein

    Manufacturers can use other plant proteins in food in drink to add protein to their products without turning to traditional dairy or soy sources.

    These plant protein sources have a lower Biological Value (BV) than milk or soy proteins but can be wonderful sources of allergen free proteins.

  • Corn Sugar

    A few years ago the Corn Refiners Association petitioned the FDA to allow manufacturers to use the term “corn sugar” instead of “high fructose corn syrup” on food labels.  This renaming was a clever ploy to hide HFCS on labels, which is precisely what CRA wanted since so many people are now aware of the risks of consuming HFCS, and are trying to avoid it.

    Marketeers would have you believe that when it comes to corn sugar or cane sugar, your body doesn’t know the difference  – sugar is sugar.  This certainly is not so with HFCS, a highly processed sweetener that is linked to obesity and a host of other health problems.

  • Sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil is becoming a popular alternative to many types of oil because it is associated with health benefits including its healthy unsaturated fats and vitamin E.

  • Natural flavors

    The definition of natural flavor under the Code of Federal Regulations is: “the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional.”

  • Starch (corn)

    Corn starch, cornstarch, cornflour or maize starch is the starch derived from the corn (maize) grain. The starch is obtained from the endosperm of the corn kernel. Corn starch is a popular food ingredient used in thickening sauces or soups, and is used in making corn syrup and other sugars.

  • Inulin

    Inulin is a carbohydrate belonging to a class of compounds known as fructans and is closely related to fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS).

    Although they aren’t the same, you will often find them used interchangeably.

    These are all starches (carbohydrates), just varying in structure.

    Since inulin is not absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, it is considered to be a fiber.

    It is a soluble fiber as opposed to cellulose, which is insoluble.

  • Xanthan gum

    Xanthan gum is a sugar-like compound made by mixing aged, or fermented, sugars with a certain kind of bacteria.

    In manufacturing, xanthan gum is used as a thickening and stabilizing agent in foods.

    It has significantly more thickening ability than cornstarch, at a fraction of the cost.

  • Salt

    The average person in the U.S. consumes 3,500 milligrams of sodium a day. That’s equivalent to almost 9 grams of salt, or nearly 2 teaspoonfuls—way more than the 2,300 milligrams per day suggested by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  Although salt in moderation has not proven harmful an increasing body of evidence indicates that we should reduce the amount of salt in our diet. The American Medical Association (AMA), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Dietetic Association (ADA), and the National Institutes of Health have begun a campaign to cut the salt intake of Americans by one-half.

  • Potassium chloride

    Potassium is an essential nutrient we get from the food we eat. It typically comes in the form of potassium chloride.

    Along with sodium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium, potassium is an electrolyte, meaning that it helps to conduct electrical charges in the body. Like all the other electrolytes, our bodies have evolved elaborate systems to control blood levels in a narrow range.

    This is good news since normal levels of potassium are absolutely critical to life—if potassium levels get too high or too low, the heart and nervous system completely shut down.

  • Sodium citrate

    Sodium citrate is sometimes used as an acidity regulator in drinks, and also as an emulsifier for oils when making cheese.

    Im concerned of the high sugar content. Compare to other shake, it has 8 grams sugar. Others only has 1 – 3 sugar. Not a good weight loss shake.

    Arbonne was recommended to me by a friend who trains athletes. But I found out it’s the whole MLM thing which is kind of uncomfortable. One seems to need an arbonne ID which I think then kicks back money to the rep. I was surprised and happy to find it here on amazon. It tastes fine (I add frozen berries) and it does the trick – keep me from getting too hungry or droopy as I lose weight. Because this has no soy or dairy, you can easily find out what you are allergic to – my joints stopped hurting as soon as I got on this plan (it also includes meat fruit and veg) (but thats all). This time I am going to add back dairy and soy very deliberately to see when my joints hurts again, after what food addition.

    I love the fact that Arbonne’s soy lecithin used in the ingredients is non GMO. Also they took out the gluten. This is so wonderful to hear since I am really trying to stay away from Genetically modified foods.

    Yes, these shakes are a little pricey but vegan proteins are well worth it. I love the taste and they are very appealling. Instead of water I mix it with Almond breeze milk and/or strawberries. You can also mix it in a blender with spinach. I also purchased some other Arbonne products and like them

    It’s good but not great, mixes well, is vegan protein from high quality sources like pea, and cranberry, but with filler proteins like rice. The vanilla flavor tastes a little lemony.

    I use Arbonne vanilla and chocolate, and also GNC unflavored protein powder. We have smoothies everyday for breakfast and I use this to enhance the protein. Depending on what goes into the smoothie that day will depend on what kind of protein powder I’ll use. Both chocolate and vanilla are delicious, but not everything marries well with chocolate, so I got both. This keeps the price down for me.

    I’ve been on Arbonne for a while now and really l ike it. I replace it as a meal for breakfast and also have some when I work out, and it is delicious, especially if you add some strawberries and put it in a blender with ice.

Arbonne offers a blend of plant-based proteins that are top notch in terms of delivering the benefits of a meal replacement shake, without the fillers. The brand’s option utilizes a blend of pea, cranberry, and rice protein to make up 20 grams per serving.

With this blend, concern over taste was a factor, but there are no artificial sweeteners, flavors or anything that would cause harm. This blend is sweetened with natural sweeteners which is a great indicator of quality as sucralose and artificial cost much less.

Controversial Ingredients

Arbonne contains “cane sugar” very high on their ingredient list which is sucrose that has been extracted from sugarcane.  In the recent publication “The New Sugar Busters” the authors contend that sugar makes it difficult to lose weight, promotes  an increase in insulin, and encourages the storage of fat.  Our society’s love affair with sugar not only creates obesity,  it also is at least in part responsible for a whole host of infectious diseases.  For this reason, we classify sugars (most all types) as controversial.

Conclusion

Arbonne is a fine choice for vegans, and those that do not want to utilize dairy in their shakes.  It offers a balance of multiple proteins that have been proven effective for balanced nutrition. The taste is the only thing that may mire this option, but if not concerned with the flavor of plant based options, this may be a suitable choice for meal replacement and weight management.
