  • What is whey isolate?

    Protein molecules are generally extracted, for the purpose of use in protein fortified foods, from a few main food sources: Dairy or cow milk (e.g. Whey and Casein), and Plants (e.g. Pea, Soy, Hemp). The isolated molecules are not identical in their structure- therefore, protein isolates derived from different food products come with varying benefits (4, 6) Whey protein molecules are found in cow milk. The protein molecules are extracted from the dairy through a series of filtration methods. These filtration methods separate the protein molecules from most of the other dairy compounds like lactose (7). Following the initial filtration, what is left is called “whey concentrate”. Whey concentrate is then continually filtered until the contents of the filtered material are almost solely whey protein molecules- creating “whey isolate”.

  • What is a Meal Replacement?

    Meal replacement products are beginning to make a name for themselves in the nutrition world. With the abundance of quick and easy meal options increasing, provided by fast food/chain restaurants and premade “budget meals”, we have started to realize how many of us are simply filling rather than fueling ourselves. There is a well documented correlation between the increased availability of processed ingredients, and the American obesity epidemic. Our digestive systems have become inflamed, due to a lack of microbial gut health, and our endocrine systems have become overwhelmed by an onslaught of indigestible, or unusable, processed sugars and unhealthy oils.

Packages busting but Great Customer Service

I have received 3 of these orders now. (one Vanilla, one chocolate, and one cappuccino). I loved them all, but the most recent one, cappuccino, had like half of the films busted. It is a little annoying since I mainly wanted these was to "easy proportion" my protein. I still like them a lot, the flavor and all, but I wish it was still intact.

Update: After posting this, I got contacted the next day by the Customer Service Department, and they did a great job trying to make it right. A+ Company.

Finally…A protein powder that doesn’t make me sick!!!

I Have bought numerous different brands of protein powders and they all gave me the same reaction nausea and an upset stomach. I was hesitant to try Vade but I said I’ll give it a go! And let me tell you this is the best protein powder I have ever had I don’t get any nausea or upset stomach after drinking and the flavor is actually nice and light not heavy I will definitely be buying my protein powders from here from now on! Thank you so much for such a great product!

Pre workout

love the protein packs and easy to use on the go! However the pre workout packs were super disappointing and don’t taste good at all. Leaves a weird aftertaste and has a bad smell when drinking it. I love energy/pre workout drinks on the way or while working out. But not in this case.

Love my protein shakes!!

I truly enjoy the protein shakes. They do not taste chalky, but taste great and filling. I enjoy the strawberry flavor and of course my favorite chocolate. Yummy.
I do not feel bloated and the best part of is only 90calories, 20g of protein, gluten free, portable, mess free. Love it 😍.

Great flavor and convenient packaging

The chocolate is my favorite it taste great slightly chalky in my opinion but still so good!!! I love how easy it is no scooping especially for me when I'm running late to work. Have only tried samples with water and helped the hunger until I had time to have a snack and I'm sure turning it into a smoothie would be delicious l. I recommend to give it a try, I know I'll be getting more.

My favorite meal of the day!
