Plant-based RTD from Myprotein comes with more sugar than protein

Last week we shared details on an all-new, on-the-go protein shake from the international brand Myprotein with Impact Protein Shake, packed with 25g of protein, mostly coming from skimmed milk. The company actually has two protein RTDs this month, with the other one not being too surprising considering Myprotein has put a lot of focus on plant-based products these past couple of years.

Myprotein’s other protein RTD for October is ‘Vegan Protein Shake’, an on-the-go beverage, although it isn’t as high in protein as the Impact Protein Shake, and of course, gets all of its protein from plant-based ingredients. The nutrition profile on Myprotein’s Vegan Protein Shake starts with a moderate 11g of protein, followed by 17g of carbohydrates, all of which is sugar, 6.3g of fat, and 175 calories.

It is quite surprising to see that much sugar in a high-protein RTD, in fact, as you can see, it has just over 50% more sugar than it does protein. While that should make it quite delicious, it may steer away those after something more protein-focused and lean. Myprotein’s Vegan Protein Shake comes in Chocolate and Strawberry flavors, and at will cost you £32.99 (43.09 USD).
