Ever wonder why we chose stevia as our sweetener of choice or how to effectively fuel your workout with the Vega Sport Performance System? They’ve got you covered...sometimes in chocolate (...kidding, just a little bit of Vega Bar humor).

Q: “Given enough caffeine I feel like I could run the world.  Can you tell me which Vega nutritional shakes have caffeine and how much is in them?”

A: I sure can! Talking about caffeine makes me feel jazzed so I’m happy you wrote in. All of our chocolate and mocha flavored nutritional shakes have some caffeine from cocoa powder (and espresso beans for mocha) and here’s the approximate breakdown for you!

Vega One® Chocolate contains 11mg* caffeine from cocoa powder per serving.
Vega One® Mocha contains <25 mg* caffeine from ground espresso beans and cocoa powder per serving.
Vega® Protein Smoothie Chocolate contains <10 mg* caffeine from cocoa powder per serving.
Vega® Protein & Greens Chocolate contains <10 mg* caffeine per serving from cocoa powder per serving.
Vega Sport® Protein Chocolate contains 6 mg* caffeine from, you guessed it, cocoa powder per serving.
Vega Sport® Protein Mocha contains <20 mg* from cocoa powder and ground espresso beans, per serving.
Vega® Clean* Protein Chocolate contains 6 mg* caffeine from cocoa powder, per serving.

Vega® Essentials Chocolate contains 6 mg* caffeine from cocoa powder, per serving.

Vega® Essentials Mocha contains <15 mg* caffeine, per serving.

 *The caffeine content provided for all of our nutritional shakes is an approximate value based on information from our suppliers, and may change based on natural variations in the plant-based ingredients.
