Are all Meal Replacements created equally?

Are all Meal Replacements created equally?

Not even close!  Did you know that the United States FDA does not actually define or regulate the term Meal Replacement?

Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD says, “Buyer, beware.  Not all bars or drinks are created equally.” 

Other countries do regulate the term Meal Replacement, including Canada, the European Union, Chile, Brazil and Australia—to name a few .

The CODEX Alimentarius Commission, a body established by the United Nations, developed a standard for Meal Replacements that most of these countries follow. 

We are proud to say that in EVERY category, UNJURY® Protein-Centric Meal Replacements meet or exceed the standards set out by the United Nations/CODEX and the European Union.

CODEX and European Union Standards for Meal Replacements UNJURY – Protein Centric Meal Replacement
Total Energy/Calories – 200-400 Total Calories – 200
Protein - 25-50% of total energy Protein – 27grams/54%
Fat - <30% of total energy Fat – 22.5%
Vitamins – 25-33% of standard Vitamins – 50% daily value
Minerals – 25-33% of standard Minerals – 50% daily value

Why is this important to me?

“Meal Replacements” are everywhere, in every grocery store and on every health food aisle, but they are not all the same!  In fact, many products are made with low quality proteins that won’t protect your muscle during weight loss.  Experts agree that Whey Protein Isolate is very high-quality protein and provides all of the essential amino acids that you need to keep your muscles strong.  This is particularly important for maintaining weight loss for the long term.

If your protein shake doesn’t provide all of the essential nutrients that your body needs, and usually gets from food, it can cause deficiencies that lead to poor health - especially when you are reducing calories for weight loss!

You might experience side effects like:

  • Hair loss
  • Impaired immune function
  • Muscle loss

A Meal Replacement should supply your body with essential amino acids, fatty acids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to nourish your body.  Meal Replacements that follow the very highest standards are designed to provide ALL of the nutrients found in a balanced meal.

Protein-Centric Meal Replacements meet the highest quality standards, which you can always expect from UNJURY®!  Try them now, and for a limited time, receive 25% off a one-month supply (2+ containers, or 8+ boxes of single-serve packets).

You get more of the highest quality protein with UNJURY®. You also get far lower carb, fat, sugar and calories than in the heavily advertised flagship nutrition drinks you see on TV.
