Usana Nutrimeal is a meal replacement product. For the purposes of this review, the focus will be on the chocolate flavored product. While all the replacement flavors in this line appear to have the same nutrient content, their ingredients differ in order to produce the flavor and texture appropriate to the individual selection. Therefore, while there are vanilla, French vanilla and wild strawberry options, ingredients mentioned in this review will refer to the chocolate product.

The flavor of the Usana Nutrimeal chocolate meal replacement is, more specifically, meant to replicate Dutch chocolate. The official manufacturer’s website does include a product page for this meal replacement.

It also provides a downloadable nutrition and product information sheet in which the ingredients are identified as: a protein blend (including: soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate, pea protein), crystalline fructose, high oleic sunflower oil, maltodextrin, cocoa, a fiber blend (including soy fiber, cane fiber, gum Arabic, oligofructose, cellulose gum, xanthan gum, organic agave inulin), natural flavors, potassium phosphate, prune powder (prune and calcium stearate), calcium carbonate, sodium caseinate (a derivative of milk), sea salt, magnesium oxide, soy lecithin, zinc gluconate, ascorbic acid, ferrus fumarate, D-alpha tocopheryl acetate, vitamin A palmitate, niacinamide, cholecalciferol, folic acid, cyanocobalamin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin, potassium iodide and thiamin hydrochloride.

Many of those chemical-sounding substances are actually vitamin supplements such as vitamin C, certain B vitamins and others. It is interesting to see that the chocolate flavor in the product does actually come from the use of cocoa, which is high on the ingredients list. That said, it also includes “natural flavors,” which have not been specifically identified.

Each of these meal replacements includes 15 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber. They are low in saturated fat, low on the glycemic index, and gluten-free. Their protein sources are non GMO.

This product contains quite a bit of sodium. At 420 mg, this could mean that someone who has high blood pressure would need to be very careful throughout the rest of the day with regards to what he or she eats. A healthy adult should be able to consume that much sodium in one meal without any problem.

It should be noted that meal replacements are successful for weight loss only in the very short term. They are notorious for leaving dieters hungry and prone to overeating at other times of the day. They also don’t help in the development of healthier eating habits and can therefore lead to rebounding of weight once the dieter starts eating whole foods again.
