    Is anyone on the juice plus plan? I'm trying to figure out the nutritional content of one of there shakes made with water instead of milk? Any reviews on the capsules?

    Yep, I found a little info on the shakes, bars & a soup. If this is the same product? The "of which are sugars" is hot on the heels of the carb per portion content..
    I've bookmarked it. Just don't feel it's appropriate to put up a link to the site.. :banghead:

    I found a nutritional content for one of their Vanilla shakes, prepared as directed with 250ml of skimmed milk
    To find the content without the milk, you could just subtract the milk from these totals:
    Calories: 223
    Fat: 2.6g
    Carbs: 28.2g
    of which sugars: 26.6g
    Fructose is the second largest ingredient
    And it is interesting to see that they add more flavourings than the 'vitamin mix' and the 'fruit powder blend' is near the bottom of the list.

    We had several threads on Juice Plus 2-3 years ago, and I remember a lot of dismayed reactions at the high sugar content,

    This is the ingredients list of the vanilla shake
    Ingredients: Vegetable protein mix (from soya, soya tofu, rice, chickpeas), fructose, fibre mix (oat bran, cellulose, rice bran, pectin, apple fibre), soya lecithin, thickeners (guar gum, carrageenan), sunflower oil, flavourings, vitamin mix (vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, folic acid, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin C), mineral mix (copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, selenium, zinc, iodine), rice maltodextrin, anticaking agents: silicon dioxide, calcium silicate; fruit powder blend (apple, orange, pineapple, cranberry, peach, acerola cherry, papaya), inulin, colouring (beta-carotene), vegetable powder blend (carrot, parsley, beet, broccoli, kale, cabbage, spinach, tomato), pineapple powder, papaya powder, pumpkin seed flour, Norwegian kelp.
