FAQ - meal replacement shakes

What is Vitaminfood?

Vitaminfood is a complete nutrition concept. Vitaminfood is a vegan, sugar-free vitamin meal with no hidden or added artificial sugars and colors. Vitaminfood is exclusively sweetened with stevia and natural aromas. Every vitamin meal contains a complete blend of 27 vitamins and proteins, healthy carbs, unsaturated fats and all of the essential nutrients you need to get through the day with plenty of energy. That’s why Vitaminfood qualifies as an official meal replacement.

How does Vitaminfood taste?
Vitaminfood tastes like a soft, natural, not too sweet milkshake.Since many products contain sugar, and Vitaminfood uses only natural stevia as a sweetener you’ll need a bit of time to ‘kick’ the sugar ;). The benefits of sugar-free foods are almost immediately noticeable.
How much scoops Vitaminfood do i have to take?
In the past we gave instructions for the use of 150g / 5,29 oz powder + 500ml / 16,9 fl oz water / coconut, oat, soy or almond milk (according to the guidelines of the WHO and NL consumer association). We dropped this recommendation because in practice it has turned out to be quite a lot for many of our customers. We believe that you can decide for yourself how many scoops you take. Take the amount of Vitaminfood that makes you feel good. Everybody is unique and therefore also the needs are different. Not everyone needs the same amount of energy every day. For example, depending on what your goals are, you can take less scoops to lose weight. But you can also take more scoops if you do a lot of sports and need more protein. Therefore, the advice is to listen to your body!

 

Each scoop contains 27 vitamins, minerals and necessary nutrients. 1 (heaped) scoop contains about 200 calories.

Am I required to consume 2.000 kcal a day?

Of course not. You are free to decide for yourself how many calories are a good fit for you. The World Health Organisation (WHO) advises healthy adults to consume an average of 2.000 kcal daily. But not everyone needs the same amount of energy every day. For instance, if you exercise, you consume more energy and therefore you need more calories. Our advice is: listen to your body!

Example of portions:

Depending on what your goals are, you can add fewer scoops to lose weight, but you can also add more scoops if you work out a lot for example. Half scoop = 100 kcal with 250ml (vegan) milk or water 1 scoop = 200 kcal with 300ml (vegan) milk or water 1.5 scoops = 300 kcal with 350ml (vegan) milk or water 2 scoops = 400 kcal with 400ml (vegan) milk or water 2.5 scoops = 500 kcal with 450ml (vegan) milk or water Of course you can vary and mix Vitaminfood completely to your own taste.
