What is Almased?

Almased is the original low-glycemic high-protein (LGHP) meal-replacement shake for weight loss and nutrition support that’s backed by over 15 published studies.

Almased’s core ingredients — non-GMO soy, yogurt, and enzyme-rich honey — are combined in a unique fermentation process with an ideal 2:1 protein-to-carb in a power-packed formula brimming with high-quality protein and amino acids, in addition to vitamins, minerals, and trace elements.

What Makes Almased different?

  • Supported by hard science
  • Accelerates fat burn
  • Conquers annoying cravings
  • Powers up the metabolism

Almased is grounded in science, not hype.

In fact, in a landmark 2020 study with 19 healthy women who received either an Almased-supplemented diet or a standard diet, when supplemented with Almased the participants were able to significantly burn more fat by turning more nutrients into energy than they were able to with a regular diet(1).

This confirmed the results of a 2018 study, which showed that an Almased-supplemented diet can help burn more fat with less effort(2).

Together, these studies show that Almased can improve the burning of fat and carbs, in addition to improving the body's use of protein, leading researchers to believe that the Almased diet provides a "metabolic advantage" compared to a conventional diet.

The Benefits of Almased

Highly Bioavailable Plant-Based Protein

Soy is a complete protein with a high concentration of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids), and it’s also high quality. In fact, soy protein has the highest possible rating on a major protein-quality index, called the PDCAAS.†

Every serving is packed with 27 grams of high-quality protein. Compare this to those pound-watching and fast-slimming products, most of which max out at 10–12 grams of protein per serving.

Slow Carb Absorption

Almased is truly a unique low-glycemic diet formula that provides amino acids needed for optimal health, all in a natural formula with a low glycemic index of 27 and an extremely low glycemic load of 4. The low glycemic index of Almased helps people maintain healthy blood sugar levels after a meal.

Free of The Bad Stuff

And consumers can feel good about choosing Almased because it contains NO artificial fillers, flavors, added sugars, preservatives or stimulants. It’s diabetic-friendly, gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.

Satisfying Low-Calorie Energy-Dense Shakes

At only 180 calories per serving, our satisfied customers use Almased to replace 1 or 2 meals daily with quality nutrition in one simple shake.

Almased shakes are a convenient and no-fuss way to satisfy hunger, lose weight and stay healthy.
