What’s New with Vega One?

“The closest you can get to perfection is constant improvement.” –Brendan Brazier
Guided by the wisdom of these words and our continual mission to make Vega products even better through new ingredients and innovation, while remaining true to the principles on which Vega was built, Vega One is the result of extensive research on what passionate, informed, health-minded Vega fans wanted most in the next generation of Health Optimizer:

  • Superior nutritional profile
  • A one-scoop complete serving
  • Better digestibility
  • Improved taste and texture

Superior Nutritional Profile:

  • 1000 ORAC Antioxidant Blend: we created an all-new super-fruit blend featuring maqui, acai, goji and other berries to give you a broader range of phytonutrients with over 2 times more antioxidants per scoop.
  • Green Blend: we broadened the spectrum of greens by adding chlorophyll-rich, nutrient-dense superfoods such as kale, broccoli, spinach and alfalfa, along with chlorella, to boost the nutritional profile of Vega One with 20% more greens per scoop (for a total of three full servings of veggies per scoop!)
  • Protein: we boosted our complete protein blend with SaviSeed protein, greatly increasing the tryptophan content (an essential amino acid). Vega One now boasts 15% more protein per scoop.
  • Omega-3 (and Fiber!): we added white chia—renowned for its Omega-3 content—to bump our Omega-3s per scoop up by 20%. Chia is also one of the best-quality sources of fiber, rounding out the fiber profile of Vega One nicely.

A One-Scoop Complete Serving:

  • We did surveys, focus groups and collected ongoing consumer feedback; an overwhelming majority of you told us you only took half a serving of Health Optimizer—one scoop—a day. We formulated Vega One’s single-scoop serving to maximize the nutritional density of your one-a-day scoop, so it delivers all the antioxidants, probiotics and digestive enzymes you got from the full two scoop serving of Health Optimizer, plus more protein, greens and Omega-3 than the old single scoop.

Better Digestibility:

  • Higher Net-Gain Nutrition in Every Scoop: we doubled the amounts of digestive enzymes per scoop to help facilitate the breakdown of nutrients during digestion. This allows for better absorption which means higher net-gain nutrition—and we doubled the number of probiotics per scoop, too.

Improved Taste and Texture:

With all these changes, it not only resulted in a great nutritional boost, it tastes better too!

  • Good-for-You Can Taste Good, Too: Beloved as it was for its nutritional profile, the number one complaint about Health Optimizer we heard loud and clear over the years was how (not so delicious) it tasted. Our research was resounding proof that the next generation of Health Optimizer needed a taste overhaul. Even some of our most loyal Vega fans admit to blending Health Optimizer into smoothies—just to make it palatable. Vega One offers premium nutrition AND great taste in the same scoop, but it can also be blended for those adventurous consumers
  • Ingredients Impact Flavor: After tasting every ingredient in Health Optimizer individually, we discovered a few elements that stood out in all the worst (tasting) ways. We replaced some vitamins and minerals in our blend with more expensive, neutral-tasting sources.
  • On-the-go Portability: Delivering exceptional nutritional value on-the-go has been one of the cornerstones of Vega formulation. Our research told us the taste of Health Optimizer was a barrier to the very portability it was designed for—Vega One is so delicious mixed with water alone, you’ll never have to sacrifice taste for travel again.

We love Vega One—and we hope you’ll love and continue to enjoy health and wellness with the new Vega One, too!

What Makes Vega One Awesome?

15 g Protein

Vega One features our signature, broad-spectrum, plant-based protein blend, with all essential amino acids in ideal balance. Vega One’s Complete Protein Blend includes:

  • Pea protein
  • SaviSeed™ (sacha inchi) protein
  • Hemp seed protein
  • Sprouted whole grain brown rice protein

6 g Fiber

Boasting 24% of your recommended daily intake of fiber per serving, Vega One is a delicious way to work both soluble and insoluble fiber into your day. Fiber intake has been shown to help:

  • Maintain normal blood sugar levels1
  • Normalize elimination and maintain bowel health1
  • Promote a feeling of fullness, reduce feelings of hunger and thereby support healthy weight management when combined with exercise and a reduced calorie diet.1

Fiber in Vega One is primarily sourced from flax, inulin (fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS)), and pea.

Low GI Carbohydrates

Low glycemic—with an impressively low GI of 19.22—one serving of Vega One is comprised of 26% naturally-occurring complex carbohydrates. Sweetened only with stevia extract, Vega One has no sugar, maltodextrin or sugar-derivatives added.

1.5 g Omega-3

Giving you as much Omega-3 per scoop as 6 oz. of wild chum salmon, Vega One sources its plant-based Omega profile from white chia, whole flax seed (not flax meal) and hemp.

Antioxidants

Blueberries are jealous—that’s because a serving of Vega One has as many antioxidants3 as 2.7 cups of them. Plus, each scoop of Vega One showcases 200mg of Vega’s custom 1000 ORAC4 Antioxidant Blend, sourced from some of the most antioxidant-rich fruit in the world, including:

  • Maqui, goji and Açaí berries
  • Pomegranate seed
  • Mangosteen
  • Grape seed extract

Greens

A single, one-scoop serving of Vega One delivers the equivalent of 3 servings of vegetables—mainly from our Green Blend, which features:

  • Chlorella (cracked cell, high CGF)
  • Alfalfa grass
  • Spinach leaf
  • Broccoli
  • Kale

Vitamins & Minerals

Helping you cover your key nutrient bases, a serving of Vega One give you 50% of your daily intake of vitamins and minerals. Premium vitamin and mineral forms such as mineral citrates were chosen to help you get more out of Vega One through better absorption.

Probiotics

With 1 billion CFU dairy-free probiotics (lactobacillus acidopholus and Bifidobacterium bifidum), Vega One helps maintain healthy intestinal flora—without a visit to the yogurt aisle.

Digestive Enzymes

We want you to get everything you can from a serving of Vega One. That’s why Vega’s Digestive Enzyme blend is added to facilitate the breakdown of nutrients in Vega One during digestion, so more nutrients are available to be absorbed by your body for higher net-gain nutrition.

Maca

Rich in amino acids, alkaloids, sterols, vitamins and minerals, 1000 mg of pure, organic, gelatinized maca are included in every serving of Vega One, to help you balance, invigorate, energize and maintain good health.

Chlorella

Part of the Green Blend in Vega One, chlorella is a nutritious, green micro-algae that delivers Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), chlorophyll, protein, vitamins and minerals to help support immune function5.

Vega One FAQs

Who can use Vega One?

Most adults can benefit from taking Vega One, from busy students, to active professionals, to on-the-go Moms to seniors. Basically anyone looking to add more plant-based nutrients to their diet in an all-in-one, just-add-water format will enjoy the convenience of Vega One nutritional shake.

Can I give Vega One to my child?

Consult your pediatrician before giving Vega One—or any dietary supplement/natural health product—to your child. The percent of Daily Values for the vitamins and minerals expressed on the labels for Vega One are based on adult dosages/serving sizes. Children’s nutritional requirements vary by age and weight; your pediatrician can recommend the appropriate serving/dosage for your child.

Can I take Vega One while pregnant or nursing?

Consult your doctor, obstetrician or midwife prior to taking Vega One—or any dietary supplement/natural health product—while you are pregnant or nursing.

Can Vega One interfere with prescription drugs, medications or supplements?

Consult your doctor and/or natural healthcare practitioner prior to taking Vega One—or any dietary supplement/natural health product—while you are taking prescription medications or other dietary supplement/natural health products.
Vega One contains Vitamin K, which can interact with blood thinning medications. Vega One also contains niacin, which may cause flushing of the skin in people sensitive to niacin.

Do I have to be vegetarian or vegan to take Vega One?

While all ingredients in Vega One—and all Vega products—are 100% plant-based, you don’t have to be vegetarian or vegan to enjoy the benefits of Vega One. It’s an ideal supplement for convenience-seeking omnivores wanting to increase the percentage of plant-based nutrients in their diet, too.

Can I mix Vega One with something other than water?

Absolutely! Although Vega One was formulated to taste good and provide all-in-one nutrition when mixed only with water, you can mix Vega One with juice, rice/hemp milk or blend it with your favorite smoothie or healthy shake.

Can I add Vega One to my blended shake/smoothie?

Yes. Vega One tastes great on its own just mixed with water or in a blended fruit smoothie. Natural flavor Vega One is excellent if you’re blending it with fruit, as it has a neutral flavor that goes well with just about any smoothie ingredient. That being said, the chocolate flavor blended with a banana, berries, rice milk and nut/seed butter is pretty tough to beat!

Is it possible to take too much Vega One?

Each serving of Vega One provides 50% of the daily value of vitamins and minerals. It is advisable to talk to your health care practitioner if you want to take more than 2 servings of Vega One a day.

I am taking a multivitamin. Will I get too high of a dose of vitamins and minerals (like Iron or Vitamin A) if I take Vega One as well?

As each serving of Vega One provides 50% of the daily value of vitamins and minerals, it may not be necessary to take another multivitamin in conjunction with taking Vega One. Consult your doctor or health care practitioner to determine a diet and supplement routine that best support your individual health circumstances and lifestyle.

Do I need to take a multivitamin or any other supplements while taking Vega One?

Vega One contains 50% of your daily intake of vitamins and minerals, 15 g protein, 6 g fiber, 1.5 g Omega-3, antioxidants, probiotics, greens, plus 500 mg of chlorella and 1000 mg of maca in every serving.
Consult your doctor or natural healthcare practitioner to determine a diet and supplement routine that best supports your individual health circumstances and lifestyle.

Do I have to take the full recommended serving size of Vega One each time?

Vega One is formulated to have a one-scoop complete-serving. However, many people start out with less than a full serving to let their bodies adjust to increased levels of some nutrients, including fiber, and slowly work their way up to a full, one-scoop serving. You should take whatever portion of a serving that works best for your needs, body and activity level.

What benefits does Vega One provide?

The nutrients in Vega One provide the complete daily essentials to help you thrive:

  • Cover your key nutrient bases for optimal health
  • Provide energy to sustain an active life 1
  • Help metabolize fats, proteins and carbohydrates 2
  • Support normal glucose metabolism 3
  • Develop strong bones and teeth 4 , and maintain healthy skin and eyes 5
  • Facilitate proper muscle function 6 and repair of connective tissue 7
  • Promote natural, healthy intestinal flora 8
  • Help support a healthy immune system 9

Is Vega One helpful for weight loss?

In combination with healthy eating and regular exercise, Vega One can contribute to a healthy weight management program. With 123 calories and 11 g of carbs per serving (Natural flavor, prepared with water), Vega One can be an excellent choice for those on a calorie-reduced diet. With 6 g of fiber, 15 g of protein and 1.5 g Omega-3, Vega One is naturally filling and satisfying. Vega One is 100% plant-based, contains no trans fats or cholesterol, and because it includes digestive enzymes to facilitate the breakdown of nutrients during digestion, Vega One offers effective nutritional absorption and higher net gain nutrition.

Can I use Vega One as a meal replacement?

Vega One is a dietary supplement that includes 50% of your daily intake of vitamins and minerals, 15 g protein, 6 g fiber, 1.5 g Omega-3, antioxidants, probiotics and greens. The plant-based ingredients that make up the Green and Protein Blend in a serving of Vega One provide the equivalent of 3 servings of vegetables. Depending on the flavor, a serving of Vega One contains between 123 and 141 calories. When mixed with fruit, juice, rice/hemp milk, or blended with your favorite smoothie or healthy shake, Vega One can provide an effective nutrient boost to start your day.

Why do you use stevia extract in the formula for Vega One?

We have yet to find another no-calorie, natural sweetener that does not add sugars to the nutritional profile and is not a sugar alcohol or chemical derivative. We believe stevia is the best choice in line with the Guiding Principles of Vega. Customers sensitive to stevia can continue to choose Natural and Chocolate for lower stevia content.

Why do you use inulin in the formula for Vega One?

Inulin is an effective prebiotic fibre source that ensures probiotics flourish. Inulin also increases the absorption of calcium and magnesium.

Are the ingredients in Vega One non-GMO?

We believe everyone should have the right to know what they’re eating. That’s why Vega is committed to using non-GMO ingredients to make our products. Unlike organic certification, there is currently no universally-recognized North American certification standard for non-GMO status. Until there is, Vega is actively working with a third-party non-profit organization—the Non-GMO Project—for verification of our non-GMO products.
Vega Maca, Vega SaviSeed, and Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend have already been Non-GMO Project verified. Due to the large number of ingredients, Vega One (like our Vega Sport products) are more complex; they are in the latter stages of becoming verified. Vega has taken an active part in a Non-GMO Project working group helping to apply the Non-GMO Project’s food-focused verification standard to dietary supplements.

Are the ingredients in Vega One organic?

Whenever we can, we’ll choose organic ingredients for Vega products. As demand for organic ingredients grows, it’s getting easier every year to find reliable sources of organic ingredients, but the cost of certification remains prohibitive for smaller-scale farmers—especially cooperative farmers of crops like SaviSeed (Sacha inchi). Because of this, some of our ingredients are organically grown, but not certified organic—we think the right choice can include supporting the little guys.

How much of Vega One is certified organic?

The only certified organic ingredients in Vega One are maca and the kale in the green blend.

How much of Vega One is raw?

The only ingredients in Vega One that can be considered raw are the green blend, the hemp and the chlorella.

What’s in Vega One that makes it so expensive?

Like the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” We consider Vega One “valuable” rather than expensive. Vega One was made without compromises using the cleanest, least processed, whole-food-derived ingredients we can find. Ranging from $3 to $3.50 per serving (depending on flavor), Vega One may be one of the more expensive nutritional shakes on the market, but it’s still less expensive than many convenience alternatives—even a designer coffee and muffin costs more than a serving of Vega One. Far better for you—and the planet—than most alternatives, you get 50% of your daily intake of vitamins and minerals, 15 g protein, 6 g fiber, 1.5 g Omega-3, anitoxidants, probiotics, greens, plus 500 mg of chlorella and 1000 mg of maca in every serving of Vega One.
Additionally, if you purchased all of the supplements included in Vega One separately (including a multivitamin and mineral supplement, Omega-3 supplement, antioxidant supplement, probiotic supplement, digestive enzyme supplement, greens supplement, protein supplement and fiber supplement, plus chlorella and maca), you’d probably spend more than you would on the equivalent amounts in Vega One.

Are the probiotics in Vega One dairy-free?

Yes, the probiotics in Vega One are dairy-free. The Probiotic Blend in Vega One includes Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14 and Bifidobacterium bifidum Bb-02.

How do you keep the flax seed in Vega One from going bad?

Our flax seed goes through a proprietary flash pasteurization process that inactivates the enzymes that cause rancidity while preserving the nutrient content.

How does Vega One taste?

It tastes great! We use only the finest natural flavorings and highest quality stevia for minimal aftertaste and a nice round sweetness. Compared to Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer, Vega One has much improved taste and mouthfeel. With Vega One, you may not get as much flavor as non-plant-based whey protein shakes may offer, but you also won’t get any artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners either. Even our Natural flavor tastes good on its own, as it has a bit of vanilla flavor and stevia also.

Why are there 24 servings in the large tub of Natural flavor of Vega One and only 20 servings in the chocolate and berry flavors?

There are more servings in the Natural flavor because its serving size is smaller than the serving sizes of other flavors, therefore, more servings fit in the tub. You get the same nutritional value as the other flavors, without the volume added by the natural flavorings. The Natural flavor provides the best value as it is the same price as the other flavors but gives you 4 extra servings per container!

My naturopath had recommended it and now I'm addicted!! Yes it is pricey but compared to other proteins this has high quality products it's more of a nutritional supplement. I've even got my husband who only used to eat lucky charms eating this at breakfast. Great changes seen in him as well.

    I'm not taking it as part of an exercise program and i'm not a vegetarian. I find it difficult to eat first thing when i get up, but i know how important protein is to get your body revving, so this product works great for that for me.
    As a side benefit it also seems to control hunger and cravings. Someone told me pea protein can do that, don't know if its true or not but it works for me."

So far, I've just tried the berry flavor, which is pleasant and not too sweet. The best thing about this mix is that it keeps me satisfied for a surprisingly long time. I've even gone as long as 6 hours before feeling hungry again. I use a little smaller scoop so I spend around $2 a cup, which makes the price reasonable to me. I'd prefer if the product had more protein and less carbohydrates, but I'm still losing weight, so it's good enough. I love that it's easy, quick, no mess - and I'm moving on with my day."

    "I've been having Vega One for breakfast for 1.5 years now. Chocolate is my favorite flavor for straight drinking mixed with almond milk - I use vanilla or berry when making smoothies or mixing with yogurt for my kids.

    I think I have been healthier (getting sick less) since using this product. I also feel great and "guilt free" because it is Vegan.

    The taste is not GREAT, but I've gotten used to it and I don't mind it now."

  • 9.6/10  Love the product, hate the price

    By Michelle Garraway on Tuesday, September 3, 2013 15:07

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:6/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Tastes Great,Vegan, great nutritional profile

    How did you use it?:Everyday,Between Meals,Every Morning

    "I started using this as a meal replacement in the mornings when I was cutting weight. I LOVE it and cannot say enough about it. I actually look forward to drinking it in the mornings. The flavors are fantastic, I've tried Vanilla Chai and Chocolate, both are great. The Chocolate was actually a little too rich for me in the mornings, genuinely tasted like a chocolate milkshake. I mix with only water in my shaker cup.
    I 100% felt an energy boost every day after drinking it, the difference was immediate and noticeable. On top of that I stayed full for hours afterwards. The only downside is the price, it's about a quarter of my grocery budget for the month, so definitely not on the cost effective side. That being said, I have tried two other brands so far and haven't been as wowed, so I will continue to buy Vega unless/until something else comes along."

    By random555 on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 01:12

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Value:2/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,Mixes Well,So much good stuff in one serving
    (-) High cost per serving

    How did you use it?:Every Morning

    "I think there's a lot of"good stuff" in here, it's fairly complete, its vegan, and blended with a banana and some greek yogurt, it makes a perfect breakfast. But you get very little in one container, so I ran out of it pretty fast. The taste is ok, not so delicious that I always looked forward to it, but it was pleasant and went down easy. It's just a bit "gritty". Just wish it wasn't so expensive per serving! I can't afford to drink this every day. I just finished my first tub, and I would buy it again, someday."

    (-)  Gave Me An Upset Stomach

    How did you use it?:Every Morning

    "This is a great product, but be sure to start with a small dose and work your way up, as it is very potent with detoxing and affecting your stomach. This makes more sense anyways as it is too sweet to use a whole scoop at once and quite expensive. Amazing with almond milk, try half a scoop and fresh greens like kale blend well to tone down the sweetness. Very delicious Chai flavour."

    "Love this product! Can be pricey, but I buy from Vitamart or sometimes when on sale locally. The product is excellent value but I don't use every day because it can be costly. I use at different times of the day. Sometimes morning as a smoothy or sometimes late afternoon/evening when I'm working through supper. I find it mixes really well - one of the best in my mind with water, or a blender with other fruits will certainly do the job.

    Highly recommend this product"

Suggested Use

Mix one level scoop of Vega One Nutritional Shake in 1-1.5 cups (250-375ml) of ice-cold water, juice or non-dairy beverage. Shake well and enjoy.

Cleansing Symptoms- Notice to First Time Users

As with any positive dietary change, some people may experience temporary, cleansing-type symptoms, including headaches, constipation, diarrhea and nausea when first taking Vega One. To minimize symptoms, start with one-quarter (1/4) of a serving and gradually increase intake over the next few weeks. Be sure to drink plenty of water (at least 8 cups a day) with increased dietary fibre intake.

Possible Cleansing-type Symptoms:

Some people are sensitive and may experience some unpleasant cleansing-type symptoms when first consuming Vega One. Duration of symptoms vary but may last less than a week. The following are some of the more common ones:

Bloated stomach and gas: Your body may be unaccustomed to a higher fiber diet; the bacteria in your normal GI track will produce gas as they ferment the extra fiber. However, your body will learn to adjust and symptoms will decrease.

Diarrhea: Your body tries to quickly excrete undesirable substances. People with weak digestive systems or those who normally eat few fruits and vegetables and make a sudden change are most susceptible.

Constipation: Dehydration may lead to constipation. Foods high in fiber must be accompanied by plenty of water. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. To minimize cleansing-type symptoms, start by taking just a small amount of Vega One, perhaps one-quarter to one-half of the suggested serving size and increase consumption gradually as your body adapts to it.
