Plenny Shake V3 - removed maltodextrin

You managed to remove all of the maltodextrin?
That means people who had a hard time dealing with the artificial sweetener taste will be able to drink Plenny now?
I take it there are no other artificial sweeteners in the new formula?

Yes we did remove it :smiley:

But we still use sucralose as sweetener.

I tried the new V3 formula this week, and I must honestly say, that it tastes a LOT less sweet than before, and a lot more consistent with a drink you expect from a low sugar content.

It still is sweet by all means, but it feels healthier and more “full” of stuff, big thumbs up here from my side =)

So happy to hear that! :smiley: Glad we changed the formula for the better <3

Does anyone know how much sucralose is in a plenny shake?

The EU safe level of sucralose is 15mg per kg body weight per day. This safe level has been made up with caution in mind and no effects have been reported in levels as much as 1,500mg/kg/day.

Is it below the 15mg if I have a shake for breakfast and lunch?

Thank you!

The approximate amount of sucralose per pouch (5 plenny shake meals) goes around .07g depending on the flavor. This is far away from amounts that can even be considered high/risky/toxic, so we are more than okay :slight_smile:


Wow. Thank you Tim. Not even worth thinking about at such low levels.

EDIT! The amount of sucralose per bag is actually 0.14 g because we now sell 10-meal bags instead of 5! So 0.14g of sucralose per 1kg of product :slight_smile:

Don’t worry about the sucralose - it is a standard addition used by basically every meal replacement company. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, the taste is good and it leaves the body almost without being metabolized.

Maltodextrine was a problem, though, and the main reason why I was not interested in JJ - until I learned that you removed it. And I am glad that you removed it, because your products are really great - cheap and superior quality now. I would say currently the best meal replacement on the market.

For Plenny shake v4.0 I definitely recommend removing the caffeine from all flavours.

There are people who love the flavour but can’t have it in the evening because of the caffeine.
I would consume a lot more of the shakes if they were caffeine free.

Hey @marba , only our Coffee and Chai Latte flavours contain caffeine, all others are caffeine-free!

I know. But why do you add caffeine to those? Food is supposed to be caffeine-free after all. Otherwise we would have to do dinner cancelling everyday.
