User reviews

As a neuroscientist, I read widely beyond my specialty areas, especially research on nutrition and health. I also read labels. I liked the formulation of the original Orgain nutritional shake, especially its having more protein than sugar (the reverse of most "nutritional" drinks), so I tried it. I liked it and drank 1 or 2 containers every day -- until Orgain produced its Vegan nutritional shake. It cuts sugar even further, and does not sweeten it with any other sweetener. Recent research suggests that sweet taste ("natural" or artificial) itself can cause problems. Vegan Orgain tastes just right to me. I drink at least two per day, and sometimes pour a little into my coffee -- the Vanilla works very nicely as a creamer. Another benefit, usually overlooked by nutritionists, is that vegetable protein has more arginine relative to lysine, making it more available for producing NO (nitric oxide), which is essential for relaxing arterial muscles.
Bought this for son with Crohn's in the middle of a flare to give his gut a rest. It helped. We ended up needing to expand his liquid diet intake (and that ultimately led to its remission), but this product tasted good to him and he could carry it easily to school for lunch/snacks.
It tastes horrible. I can't drink it just because of its taste. I use the powder protein shake, the chocolate one, and it's fine, but this one's taste is unbearable for me. I bought a 12 pack and now I am mixing it up with my powder shake to use it. I like the content of it - it's plant based and organic. However, I expected less sugar and more protein, It has 16g of protein and 9g of sugar, which is a ratio of 1:1.7, while the powder shake has 21g of protein, zero sugar and 5g of sugar alcohol, which is ratio of 4:1 (sugar alcohol does not affect diabetics blood sugar but has the same end metabolic effect as sugar, i.e. it is converted to fat).A drink for daily use should be have at least an OK taste, right? I understand that if they try to keep it healthy, the taste will suffer, because we can't compare a drink's taste without sugar with one with plenty of sugar but please work on it, find a way to improve the taste with as fewer compromises as possible.
ProsDelicious -- is best very coldDairy freeSoy freeGluten freeNon-GMORefrigeration not needed for storageLots of proteinCheaper here than in the storesGreat for a snack or meal replacement (think quick breakfast to get your protein on the go) ConContains sugarHIGHLY RECOMMEND
Love it! Doesn't give any stomach ache like other similar products, great for healthy weight gaining and maintaining! Mix it with dark coffee! Trust me!
This stuff is delicious. Closest thing to whey protein that I've tasted since becoming vegan. Awesome ingredient and nutrition list as well.
Good product, very convenient, a bit pricey, but I keep buying more of them. And as a vegan it's nice to have this option
