What’s the difference between a Protein Shake and a Formula 1 Shake?

Formula 1 shakes and a protein shake have significant differences in nutritional profile and benefits. Some think they are the same, but a Formula 1 shake has just so much more benefits. So what is the difference between the 2 types of shakes? A Protein shake are typically very high in protein and have less than 5 g of carbohydrates, as they are not intended to be full meals. Formula 1 shakes, have a good balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat and fibre and have been designed to replace one to two meals per day in conjunction with an energy restricted diet to help with weight management. Formula 1 has the added benefits of up to 22 essential vitamins and minerals per serving, as well as being rich in high quality protein from dairy and soy. It doesn’t get much better than that.

What’s in a Formula 1 Shake?

It’s important to eat balanced nutritious meals every day. When busy lives make this hard to achieve, a Formula 1 shake is one way to help you reach your recommended daily intake of essential nutrients including protein. The comparisons below highlight specific nutrients found in common foods, not all the valuable nutrients these foods provide.

What is protein and why is it such an important part of our diet?

Protein is an important building block of bones, muscle, skin, nails and hair. Protein is also used to make enzymes, hormones or to support digestion of food.

Foods high in protein include eggs, beef, lean meats, soya beans and milk which are great, but the amount and more importantly the quality of proteins can vary widely. Proteins from beef and pork come with additional fat and cholesterols which should be eaten in moderation. Proteins that are plant based come with the added benefit of fibre, so this is an ideal protein source. Soy protein has the highest quality of amino acids among vegetable sources, which classifies it as a complete protein.

What makes soy such a great protein choice?

Soy protein comes from the soy bean, a legume that contains no cholesterol and is low in saturated fat. Soybeans are a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids – amino acids that our bodies cannot make and must be obtained from food. There are different types of soy protein. The type we use in our products is soy protein isolate, which is the most pure and refined soy available. Soy isolates are made from the de-fatted beans, with most of the other ingredients removed, leaving almost a pure protein source.

Health Fact

Protein rich foods can help build lean muscle mass along with exercise. By increasing your percentage of lean muscle mass your metabolism is also increased meaning you’ll burn more kilojoules even while you are sleeping.

What is Fructose?

Fructose is also know as fruit sugars and shouldn’t be confused with regular table sugar. It is the sweetest of all naturally occurring carbohydrates. It is a simple sugar found in many plants, honey, and root vegetables, and is one of the most basic units of carbohydrates. Natural fructose, like other simple sugars, supplies your body with energy.

A serving of Formula 1 has a similar amount of fructose as a small apple

Which is also half the amount of Fructose you would get from a large pear. A good rule of thumb for most healthy people is 10% of total kilojoules from added sugars which is about 50g per day for an average 8368 kilojoules intake for an adult. The fructose used in our Formula 1 shakes along with the natural sugar (lactose) from cows milk, contribute to the amount of carbohydrates they provide, which supplies your body with energy. These carbohydrates are infused with protein from dairy and soy, along with fibre and up to 22 vitamins and minerals.
