How can pbnutrition meal replacement shakes reduce hunger?

pb nutrition meal replacement shakes contain protein at levels which can help reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness for up to three hours when consumed as part of a balanced diet.

There are several ways in which protein can play role in hunger management- one being its effect on hunger hormones. Of course, there is not a one-size-fits all approach to nutrition and individual effects can vary. Factors that come into play with hunger levels include age, level of physical activity, intake of other foods and/or hormonal shifts.


Can the powder be mixed with anything other than water? 

Yes, it's definitely possible! You can mix it with your preferred plain plant-based milk or blend it into your favourite smoothie. 

My pb shake seemed a bit gritty, what can I do about that?

A little grittiness may be present when you shake up your pb shake and start sipping straight away. For an extra smooth texture, simply wait about 3 to 5 minutes!

Are pb nutrition meal replacement shakes intended for weight loss? 

pb nutrition shakes can be used to help you meet your weight loss goals if used correctly. They can be your new go-to for quick and delicious weight loss support in the context of a wellness journey that includes a calorie-controlled diet and regular physical activity.

Losing weight requires you to consume less energy (fewer kilojoules/calories) than you burn. We recommend a reduced serving of 2.5 scoops* (or less depending on your personal needs) with and add 440ml water for a great tasting 500ml serving. At this serve size recommended by our fabulous dietitians, each serve delivers less than 1200kJ (287kCal) and is a good source of protein, high in fibre and low in sugar!

Can I give pb nutrition™ meal replacement shakes to my child?  

We recommend pb nutrition shakes for people 18 years and older due to the energy and protein content per serve. 

If you are wanting to provide pb nutrition shakes to your younger ones it’s ok to give them a smaller serve size as a snack amongst other great options like fruit, yoghurt, nuts, or veggie sticks with hummus! More info healthy eating for children can be found here, but for specific advice, we recommend speaking with a dietitian.

How should I store my pb nutrition meal replacement shakes?  

To keep the powder fresh, make sure that pouch is sealed and stored it in a cool, dry place such as your pantry. 

How long will my mixed shake last?

You can mix up the shake and keep in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Give it a good shake again before you drink it.

Can I replace all of my meals with pb nutrition shakes?

We are glad you love them so much! However, our pb nutrition shakes are not intended as a total diet replacement. At pb nutrition, we celebrate the importance of a healthy and balanced lifestyle, and this means incorporating a wide variety of core foods such as wholegrains, legumes, fruit, veg, nuts and seeds. Thus, have pb nutrition up to 2 times per day and, if you can, tuck into some other foods, too!

Can I drink pb nutrition meal replacement shakes when I am pregnant/breastfeeding?  

Hello mamas and mamas to be! Yes, our shakes are safe to consume during pregnancy and breastfeeding. We recommend having one pb nutrition shake per day, to ensure you're getting a balance of whole foods in your diet as nutritional needs differ during pregnancy and breastfeeding. For more info on healthy eating during pregnancy, we recommend checking out this resource. 

Why may I be experiencing gastrointestinal discomfort/symptoms while having pb nutrition™ meal replacement shakes? 

Our pb nutrition shakes are an excellent source of fibre. If you transition from your standard food (or maybe you used to skip meals!) your digestive system needs a little time to adjust. Don’t worry, symptoms should ease within a few days as your gut flourishes and learns to handle the extra fibre efficiently. Note that it’s also important to drink plenty of water throughout the day when increasing fibre intake. For more information reach out to our pb nutrition Dietitian.

I don’t have the pb scoop. How can I prepare my pb shake without it? 

No scoop? No problem! If you don't have a pb nutrition scoop, you can either weigh out the powder or use metric measuring cups to measure out your serve! See the below table for weights and measurements.

If your scoop has grown legs and has gone missing, you can also opt to buy a replacement scoop at check-out when you place your next order.

The ‘slim serve’ is our recommended serve for those on a weight loss journey. For more information, read on here: Slimming down with pb nutrition | pb nutrition

Is the pb packaging recyclable? 

Recyclability and sustainability of our products and being custodians of our environment is important to the pb team and has been considered in the choice of packaging. We have a broad team of food scientists, corporate regulatory and packaging specialists to review and determine the packaging materials used. Sustainability is a key criterion. The current packaging was chosen in order to maintain the integrity, safety and freshness of our pb nutrition shakes.

You may notice the Redcycle logo on the bottom of the pack. Unfortunately, this scheme has become unavailable in Australia for the time being, so we are on the lookout for another initiative to recycle soft plastics.

We are also paying attention to the satchels, scoops, and packaging material that keeps pb nutrition shakes safe and cosy during shipment. Currently, our satchels are made from 100% recycled materials. We are on the lookout for a more sustainable option for our scoops. In the meantime, we recommend you hold on to the scoop you receive with your first order and reuse this. We are planning to make the scoops an optional add-on in the future, to reduce the amount of plastic sent.

Sanitarium has recently launched a new webpage which has the most up-to-date information on our products’ packaging, along with information on our ambitious targets set for product sustainability, our new Australasian product labelling initiative and more: Sustainable packaging | Sanitarium Health Food Company

Once again, we would like to assure you that your comments and feedback have been shared with our packaging team. We really appreciate your interest in the sustainability of our products and your dedication to the care of our environment.
