Review: MET-Rx Protein Plus

My husband and I have tried several brands of real food protein powders and share what we thought of all of them here.

Our Control? MET-Rx Protein Plus
  • Tastes Good?
  • Texture
  • Price Point
  • Clean Ingredients


met RXI wasn’t sure whether I should title this one “control” or “oops.” We ordered it from a “natural” online shop and I guess I didn’t scour ingredients like I usually do! It’s totally a conventional protein powder but made for a good comparison since it happened to be in the house.

Details: Chocolate or Vanilla, 22 g. protein/serving ($.02/gram of protein as of 1/31/20)

Taste: Great – likely due to all the dangerous artificial sweeteners such as Acesulfame Potassium and sucralose. 🙁 This is a conventional product that many people grab.

Texture: Of course, perfect and smooth.

Dissolvability: Mixes really well.

But we wouldn’t – couldn’t! – recommend it because of artificial sweeteners and unnatural protein sources.
