INGREDIENTS:
  • Whey protein concentrate

    Whey protein concentrates are created by pushing the protein source (milk, whey, etc.) through a very small filter that allows water, minerals and other organic materials to pass though.

    Meanwhile, the proteins, which are too big to pass through the filter, are collected, resulting in protein powder.

  • Whey protein isolate

    This is the purified form of whey protein concentrate.

    Basically, the protein that is collected as protein concentrate is purified again to reduce the levels of carbohydrates and fats.

    Additionally it  absorbs more quickly than any other protein.

  • Milk protein isolate

    Protein isolate is the purest form of protein, according to the American Dietetic Association.

    It contains very little fat, carbohydrates or lactose and can be used as a daily supplement for those who do not consume the recommended amount of protein in their diet.

  • Glutamine peptide

    Glutamine peptides are glutamine molecules that are bonded to other amino acids to increase the stability of glutamine in your body once it is ingested.

    Glutamine peptides are sold as a nutritional supplement to improve muscle and soft tissue repair following exercise, injury or surgery.

  • 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.

  • High oleic sunflower oil

    High oleic sunflower is a trans free oil.

    High oleic sunflower oil is very high in oleic (monounsaturated) acid.

    Monounsaturated fats have been linked to an increase in good cholesterol and beneficial health effects.

  • Corn syrup solids

    Although this could fall into the yellow category we feel it important to point out a few things.

    For starters corn syrup solids are manufactured from corn syrup liquid through a process that removes 97% of the water from the liquid.

    The Center for Science in the Public Interest puts corn syrup and corn syrup solids on its “Cut Back” list.

    The CSPI says these corn syrup products are not toxic, but large amounts may be unsafe or promote bad nutrition.

    Corn syrup is a sweet, thick liquid that’s made by treating cornstarch with acids or enzymes.

  • Mono- and diglycerides

    The public apparently caught on that partially hydrogenated oils were unhealthy; so now the FDA requires labeling for trans fat content, BUT only if it contains more than .49 g per serving, AND only if it comes from triglycerides! Not too difficult to get around that rule…simply decrease the serving size, or disguise the trans fats somehow…

    Of course, big industry doesn’t want us to know that they’re poisoning us…so, they exploited the loophole. They started using monoglycerides and diglycerides so they aren’t required to label the food as containing trans fats.

    Monoglycerides and Diglycerides are still manufactured, just like partially hydrogenated oils, and they still contain dangerous trans fats. Trans fats that aren’t required to be reported on the labels. Trans fats that are still dangerous to your health. Trans fats that are causing our children to develop diabetes and heart attacks.

  • Disodium phosphates 

    Disodium phosphate is used primarily as a food additive for stabilization, emulsification and phosphate fortification.  It’s considered safe in the form in which it’s added to food products, although in its pure form it can sometimes be toxic.

     

  • Calcium phosphate

    Milk naturally contains calcium phosphate.

    Foods such as breads, cereals and drink mixes also commonly contain calcium phosphate.

    Manufacturers also frequently fortify packaged foods and drinks with calcium phosphate.

  • Soy lecithin

    Soy lecithin is not soy protein, but instead a component of the soybean plant that is used an emulsifier in a variety of foods.

  • Tocopherols

    Natural mixed tocopherols (forms of vitamin E) can help maintain the freshness and shelf life of products.

  • MCT (Medium chain triglycerides)

    MCT occurs naturally in coconut oil and other foods.  Coconut oil is an incredible health food that is proven to improve health and help you lose weight.  People take MCT oil supplements to fight diseases such as mal-absorption and obesity. Even bodybuilders have started taking these supplements in order to burn fat and increase energy levels.

  • Flaxseed oil

    Flaxseed oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are needed for health. Flaxseed oil contains the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which the body converts into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil.

  • Borage oil

    Borage seed oil contains a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA seems to have anti-inflammatory effects. Borage flower might have an antioxidant effect.

  • Cocoa powder

    Cocoa powder is made when chocolate liquor is pressed to remove three quarters of its cocoa butter.

    The remaining cocoa solids are processed to make fine unsweetened cocoa powder.

  • Polydextrose

    Polydextrose is an indigestible synthetic glucose.

    It is a food ingredient classified as soluble fiber by the U.S.Food and Drug Administration.

  • Fibersol-2

    Fibersol-2 is a soluable fiber supplement that was designed to enhance digestive health.

  • Cellulose/cellulose gum

    One of an array of factory-made additives, cellulose is increasingly used by the processed-food industry to thicken or stabilize foods, replace fat and boost fiber content, and cut the need for ingredients like oil or flour, which are getting more expensive.

    Cellulose is especially popular because it can be used in many ways in food and is relatively inexpensive.

  • Oat fiber

    Oat fiber a great source of fiber in shakes.

    Oats contain more soluble fiber than any other grain, resulting in that full and satisfied feeling longer.

  • Rice syrup or brown rice syrup

    We originally labeled this ingredient neutral but then got too many of you pointing us to article after article on some of the controversy surrounding brown rice or rice syrup.  The health benefits of brown rice syrup were called into question when Consumer Reports released an analysis of arsenic levels in rice products like white rice, brown rice, and rice breakfast cereals. Brown rice syrup is the chosen sweetener in a host of foods considered healthy. Their analysis however found arsenic, a potent carcinogen that’s harmful to a child’s developing brain, was present in high levels in foods that were marketed to kids.

  • 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.”

  • Artificial flavors

    The search for “natural” sources of chemicals often requires that a manufacturer go to great lengths and expenses to obtain a given chemical. For this reason, synthetically produced flavors are frequently used in foods and beverages.

    Artificial flavors have been known to cause an array of health problems such as chest pain, headaches, fatigue, nervous system depression, allergies, brain damage, seizures, nausea, dizziness and many more.

  • Dicalcium phosphate

    Dicalcium phosphate is commonly added to food as a dietary supplement for a source of calcium and phosphorus.

    Due to its fairly high concentration of calcium, it should be used with caution by breast feeding mothers and those suffering from lung disease and kidney stones.

  • Magnesium oxide

    Magnesium is an element your body needs to function normally.

    Magnesium oxide may be used for different reasons. Some people use it as an antacid to relieve heartburn, sour stomach, or acid indigestion.

    Magnesium oxide also may be used as a laxative for short-term, rapid emptying of the bowel (before surgery, for example).

    It should not be used repeatedly. Magnesium oxide also is used as a dietary supplement when the amount of magnesium in the diet is not enough.

  • Ascorbic acid

    Ascorbic acid is another word for Vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. Ascorbic acid works to preserve food.

  • Vitamin E acetate

    Vitamin E acetate, also called tocopherol acetate, is a dry form of vitamin E that is commonly referred to as tocopherols. The acetate form is an ester, which has a much greater stability than unesterified tocopherols. One of the principle differences between the dry and oil forms of this vitamin is that the former has no immediate antioxidant properties. An antioxidant is a substance present in many all natural foods that are rich in nutrients. They help to retard the aging of cells and play a vital role in protection against free radicals.

  • Niacinamide (niacin)

    Niacinamide and niacin are slightly varying forms of vitamin B3.

    Vitamin B3 is naturally in many foods like fish and green vegetables and is also found in many vitamin B complex supplements.

  • Electrolytic iron

    Electrolytic iron is a reduced iron that is used in many foods including infant dry cereal.

    Electrolytic refers to the process used to fractionate the iron into smaller pieces, making the iron easier to absorb into the body.

  • Zinc oxide

    Zinc oxide is added to many foods as a source of zinc.

  • Pyridoxine or pyrodioxine hydrochloride

    Pyridoxine is one of the compounds that can be called vitamin B6, along with pyridoxal and pyridoxamine.

  • Riboflavin

    Riboflavin also known as vitamin B12. This is naturally found in many foods and it is added to many protein shakes.

  • Vitamin A acetate

    Vitamin A acetate is a natural form of vitamin A that is commonly used to vitamin supplements.

  • Thiamine mononitrate

    Thiamine mononitrate is a form of vitamin B1.

  • Folic acid

    Folic acid is a B vitamin. It helps the body make healthy new cells.

    “Folic acid” and “folate” mean the same thing.

    Folate is found naturally in some foods and folic acid is a manmade form of folate.

    Since 1998, folic acid has been added to most enriched bread flours, cornmeal, pasta, rice, and other grain products in the U.S. and Canada.

    This was done to help prevent spina bifida and anencephaly, two birth defects that are caused in part by too little folate in a mother’s body around the time her baby is conceived.

  • Potassium iodine

    Potassium iodine is an organic compound that is commercial sold as white table salt.

  • Cynocobalamin

    Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to prevent and treat low blood levels of this vitamin. Most people get enough vitamin B12 from their diet. Vitamin B12 is important to maintain the health of your metabolism, blood cells, and nerves. Serious vitamin B12 deficiency may result in a low number of red blood cells (anemia, stomach problems, and permanent nerve damage.

  • 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.

  • Sucralose

    Several grocery and retail chains nationwide have banned any products containing sucralose, the latest being Whole Foods. Watchdog groups are up in arms over artificial sweeteners like sucralose suggesting research on its safety is flawed and doesn’t account for how long-term use of the additives may impact health.

    What’s in it??   Sucralose is a synthetic additive created by chlorinating sugar. Manufacturers say the chlorine in sucralose is no different from that in table salt. But in fact, the chemical structure of the chlorine in sucralose is almost the same as that in the pesticide DDT.  Side effects may include head and muscle aches, stomach cramps and diarrhea, bladder issues, skin irritation, dizziness and inflammation.

    Further research has shown that sucralose can cause shrinking of the thymus gland, an important immune system regulator, and liver and kidney dysfunction.  A recent study by Duke University found sucralose reduces healthy intestinal bacteria, needed for proper digestion.

  • Acesulfame Potassium

    Just Google the “dangers of Acesulfame Potassium” and your screen will light up!   What is it? It is a calorie-free sugar substitute, also known as Acesulfame K or Ace K.  In the U.S., it is used in such products as candies, baked goods, frozen desserts, and beverages.    Here’s the problem it’s highly highly controversial, especially as of late.  Reported side effects: Long term exposure to methylene chloride can cause nausea, headaches, mood problems, impairment of the liver and kidneys, problems with eyesight and possibly cancer.   Because of such recent controversy towards it’s safety and side effects it’s been banned at leading retailers,  the most recent being Whole Foods.

Labrada Lean Body differentiates themselves from the rest of the marketplace by stating that they are not meant for weight loss. With that in mind, it’s important to note that this shake is designed to help build muscle and get lean body tone as the name implicates.

A quick glance at the label will tell you what’s inside, and the caloric number may catch you off guard. The calories are 330 per serving, and around triple the calories that others in the meal replacement market offer.

Controversial Ingredients

Soy – In our opinion, soy is not an ideal protein source, as there are a lot of alternatives out there. Recent studies have linked soy proteins to thyroid issues, food allergies, danger for pregnant or nursing women, immune system problems, and much more.

Sucralose – What’s in it: Sucralose is a synthetic additive created by chlorinating sugar. Manufacturers say the chlorine in sucralose is no different from that in table salt. Fact: the chemical structure of the chlorine in sucralose is almost the same as that in the now-banned pesticide DDT.  Several grocery and retail chains nationwide have taken note and have banned any products containing sucralose in them, the latest being Whole Foods.  Several watchdog groups are up in arms over artificial sweeteners like sucralose suggesting research on it’s safety is flawed and doesn’t account for how long-term use of the additives may impact health.  Reported side effects: Head and muscle aches, stomach cramps and diarrhea, bladder issues, skin irritation, dizziness and inflammation.   Concerns: Research has shown sucralose can cause shrinking of the thymus gland, an important immune system regulator, and liver and kidney dysfunction. A recent study by Duke University found sucralose reduces healthy intestinal bacteria, which are needed for proper digestion and can impact the effectiveness of prescription and other drugs.

Acesulfame potassium What’s in it: Acesulfame-K is a potassium salt containing methylene chloride, a known carcinogen. Reported side effects: Long term exposure to methylene chloride can cause nausea, headaches, mood problems, impairment of the liver and kidneys, problems with eyesight and possibly cancer. Acesulfame-K may contribute to hypoglycemia. Concerns: Of all artificial sweeteners, acesulfame-K has undergone the least scientific scrutiny. Early studies showed a potential link between the sweetener and development of multiple cancers in laboratory animals. Acesulfame potassium is a calorie-free sugar substitute, also known as Acesulfame K or Ace K. In the U.S., it is used in such products as candies, baked goods, frozen desserts, beverages, dessert mixes and tabletop sweeteners. The FDA, which is the governmental agency responsible for ensuring the safety of all foods, has approved acesulfame potassium for use in numerous food products.

Fructose – Fructose is a monosaccharide (simple sugar), which the body can use for energy. Because it does not cause blood sugar rise tremendously (has a low glycemic index), it was once thought that fructose was a good substitute for sucrose (table sugar). However, the American Diabetes Association and nutritional experts have changed their minds about this.  When too much fructose enters the liver, the liver can’t process it all fast enough for the body to use as sugar. Instead, it starts making fats from the fructose and sending them off into the bloodstream as triglycerides (you can actually gain weight).

Conclusion

Labrada Lean Body offers 40 grams of protein per shake, which is a hefty amount, however, the blend they are utilizing contains soy protein. Furthermore, this blend is riddled with controversial ingredients, fillers, and sweeteners. As such, this may not be optimal for weight loss, meal replacement, but may be for body builders that need calories and protein in one.
