Common Questions

I don’t like the taste of stevia. Will I like Vega Essentials?

We’ve added stevia to Vega® Essentials because it is our favorite sweetener. Stevia is plant-based and contains no calories, and we think it adds a delightfully sweet flavor to Vega Essentials and other Vega plant-based protein powders. If you can taste the stevia, try adding a squirt of lemon juice or a handful of dark leafy greens to your Vega Essentials smoothie. If you're particularly sensitive to the taste of stevia, some flavors of our smoothie products have less stevia than others. We recommend trying Vanilla Vega® Essentials.

The amino acids in Vega Essentials aren’t added but rather are naturally occurring from the ingredients in the blend.

When is the best time to eat Vega Essentials? Is Vega Essentials a meal replacement or a protein shake?

Vega® Essentials is a food—so you can enjoy it anytime you would eat other foods you love—at meals, snacks or anywhere in between. Check the Nutrition Facts Panel to ensure that it has the amounts of macro and micronutrients that you are looking for. Vega® Essentials is also a great way to eat more protein—it has 20 grams protein, as well as veggie and greens ingredients, 25% DV 13 vitamins and minerals, fiber, and Omega-3 ALA. Of course, even good things should be enjoyed in moderation and we suggest you enjoy Vega® Essentials as part of a balanced diet.

Can I take Vega Essentials while pregnant?

Great question! We get asked this fairly often by many new moms and parents who want to make sure they’re doing what is best for their babies. Our recommendation is to always check with your doctor or healthcare practitioner on whether or not you personally should use Vega® products while pregnant or breastfeeding. Your doctor has the full scope of your overall health and wellness goals so they will be a better judge in determining whether this is a time when you should be introducing a new food or supplement into your routine or continuing with your current intake.
