Celiac.com Sponsor: Review posted an article in Gluten-Free Food & Product ReviewsCeliac.com 01/18/2019 - I recently had the opportunity to try a high-protein dietary supplement made by Life's Abundance. It's called Life's Abundance Plant Protein Dietary Supplement, and it comes in vanilla or chocolate flavors. The supplement makes it very easy to add extra protein and fiber to your diet. There are several ways to use this plan protein supplement, and besides just mixing one scoop of it into 8 ounces of cold water to make a shake, it can also be added to smoothies, pancakes, baked goods and oatmeal. I tested it out by making shakes. As advertised, this supplement is packed with protein, at 14 grams per serving, and each serving also contains 3 grams of fiber. The main ingredients are pea protein, hemp protein, pumpkin protein, quinoa, chia seeds, coconut oil, and oat fiber. It was especially nice to see such a small, wholesome ingredient list, as many similar products contain far too many ingredients, and both are also soy-free and non-GMO. Making a protein shake couldn't be easier—I added one scoop of plant protein powder to 8 ounces of cold water and stirred thoroughly, and it was ready to drink. The texture and taste of both shakes were very good, and the vanilla flavor reminded me of vanilla ice cream. The chocolate flavor was similar to a not-too-sweet hot cocoa, and it had a slight dark chocolate taste. Clearly this product is perfect for a hearty snack, as I felt full after a single shake, but I also felt full of energy! Each serving contains only 100 calories. The shakes were also easy to digest, unlike others I've tried. Overall I think that anyone who wants to increase their dietary protein and fiber intake, and stick to a healthy regimen in the process, would really like Life's Abundance Plant Protein Dietary Supplements.

I ordered the Naurade Vegan Smart All-in-one Nutritional Shake, Vanilla, 22.8 oz on Jan 5th, 2017 through Amazon. It was through the 3rd party vendor Nutrition Depot. This product was recommended on this forum and I though I'd give it a try. The label on Amazon didn't have any mention of gluten ingredients, not processed in a facility with wheat, and was listed as gluten free. I received the product on Jan 16th, read the label, and saw that it was manufactured in a facility that also processes wheat. I contacted Amazon today (1/17/17) and they are putting through a return request through the vendor since the product wasn't what was listed on the website. Amazon grocery items show up as non-refundable, but Amazon was great about this. If you have an issue with an Amazon non-refundable item, I suggest you contact their customer service department. The woman I spoke with was great. She is putting through a refund request to the vendor. I also asked her to contact the vendor about the labeling issue, and she said that the label should have been the same as what's listed on the website per Amazon policy and she would contact them to get it changed.
