Via Pharmadaddy, an occasional contributor to SBP, comes a detailed analysis of the MLM-marketed protein supplement called Shakeology. His wife is buying it, so he decided to check out the ingredients:
If you have not come across Shakeology, it is a powdered protein supplement, replete with myriad “superfoods” (aside: there is no such thing as a superfood. Get over it.) You make a smoothie from it, either straight up or mixed with other foods, and use it as a meal replacement. Aside from the fact that processed desiccated “food” is not even close to the same thing as the real deal, taste is always of utmost concern to me. And I find it repulsive. But others, including her, find it delicious.
