What is your returns policy?

We always look to provide a high standard of customer service, however, we understand that we can’t get it right all of the time.

In accordance with the provisions of Article L.121-21 of the Consumer Code, you have a withdrawal period of 14 days from receipt of your products to exercise your right of withdrawal without having to justify the reasons behind your decision nor pay any financial penalty.

Unfortunately we are unable to refund the cost of returning any items to us except in circumstances where the product(s) has/have been delivered in error or damaged.

We do not accept products already open, for reasons surrounding food safety.

Once you have posted your package, and in order to receive your refund, you must provide us with the tracking number attributed to the returned items.

In order to exercise your right of withdrawal within the 14 day period, we recommend that you contact our customer service team either by phone on +44 (0)2033184955 or by email – customerservice@feed.co.

What is the shelf life of Feed. products? Do I need to store it in a fridge?

Our normal range can be left for up to a year when stored in the correct conditions.

 

Once opened and mixed with water, you have to consume your drink within 12 hours. So you can start a bottle in the morning and finish it in the evening 🙂

 

Our Ready-to-Drink range has a 9 month shelf life. Once opened you have up to 12 hours to consume your Feed. meal.

 

Does Feed. respect European laws?

Feed. was developed in close collaboration with the DGCCRF (Fraud Repression Office) and the EFSA, and strictly follows the many European applicable standards concerning food substitutes.

 

Feed. perfectly complies with the current standards, and even anticipated regulatory changes applicable to food intended for particular nutritional uses (DDAP) or “dietary” products, which changed significantly on the 20th of July 2016.

 

Indeed, the (EU) law n°609/2013 that came into effect on this date repealed, amongst other laws, the 2009/39/CE directive concerning food intended for particular nutritional uses, as well as the 96/8/CE. directive.

I would like to claim a refund. How do I do this?

It can happen that someone doesn’t like Feed. products, but we hope that you understand that it’s not possible for us to refund a product once it has been opened. It is also not possible for us to take back products, for health and safety reasons (this is due to rules that look to prevent the risk of contamination and poisonings…)

 

This is not a rule that is exclusive to Feed. – indeed all food producers have the same policy. In accordance with the provisions of article L.121-21 of the Code of Consumption. You do benefit from a refund period of 14 days from the delivery of the products to exercise your right of refund without justification. You would not be liable to any financial penalties in this case.

 

However, the parcel must not have been opened, and the tape wrapping the parcel must be intact. In this situation, should you wish to claim a refund you can send the item(s) back to us and send a “refund application” to:

 

Feed.

231 rue Saint Honoré

75001 Paris

The parcel should be sent to the following address:

FEED chez ALPHA DIRECT SERVICES

PAE du Haut Villé

Rue Hippolyte Bayard

60000 BEAUVAIS

Are Feed. bottles recyclable?

Feed. is an environmentally conscious brand and as a result all bottles are PETE recyclable.

 

Are the raw materials checked?

All of our raw materials are checked and we work with reliable suppliers who remain independent from industrial groups. To ensure the highest possible quality 3 laboratories collect samples from every line of production to ensure that the product specifications are all met: vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free and GM-free…

I opened my package. Can I still be refunded?

We recommend that you contact our customer service team either by phone on +44 (0)2033184955 or by email – customerservice@feed.co. Our working hours are from Monday to Friday between 9AM and 6PM.

Can I bring Feed. products with me on a plane?

We advise you to put the bottles in your check-in luggage. Should you be quizzed by customs officials we recommend you to tell them that you are carrying food. You can bring unopened and empty bottles with you in the passenger cabin and fill them during the flight. This was tested on a flight by a member of our team.

Is Feed. Kosher/Halal?

Our products are vegan and cereal-based. Consequently there won’t be any traces of animal products in our meals. However, we aren’t Kosher or Halal verified. We suggest that you consult the ingredients in each of our products prior to consumption.

Is Feed. a medical product?

Feed. is a food product and not a medical product. It hasn’t had to pass clinical trials and doesn’t have to be certified as a health product. Nevertheless, for every line of production, three third-party laboratories process random samples to check that product specifications are met accordingly.

What's the difference between the new ready-to-drink recipe and the old one?

We have modified all three recipes in order to improve the vitamin and mineral mix and to enhance the overall taste of the recipes. We put a lot of care into reselecting our ingredients so that we could offer the highest quality products.

What is amaranth?

Amaranth is a plant that originates from the tropics. It is known for its high nutritional quality. It is rich in lysine, protein, iron, magnesium, potassium and even zinc.

What is the texture of the Apple & Cranberries and Lemon & Amaranth bars?

Our bars are soft and slightly crunchy with rice and crisped amaranth.

Where does the cocoa in the Feed. spread come from?

The Feed. spread is made in France, but the cocoa used comes from Mexico, Venezuela and Ecuador.

How many meals are there in a jar of the Feed. spread?

Each jar contains the equivalent of six 400kcal meals. However, you can choose to adapt your portion size to your own taste.

Is the Feed. spread suitable for diabetics?

The Feed. spread is a complete meal that is low in hyperglycemic sugars and contains most fructose. It is also low in saturated fatty acids, containing on 2g per meal.

We decided to use fructose because it has a higher sweetening power than sucrose or hyperglycaemic glucose syrup that is usually used in this type of product.

However, we would always recommend consulting your doctor before trying the product.

What are the nutritional benefits of the spread?

A portion is made up of 33g of spread on 80g of bread. That is equivalent to 400kcal. This represents 20% of daily recommended intake of carbohydrates, fats, proteins and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals.

You can find out more by visiting the product page and looking at the product “Specifications”.

Does the Feed. spread contain palm oil?

We at Feed. are always trying to provide ever healthier recipes, and that is why our spread contains no palm oil. We use rapeseed oil for fatty acids in order to ensure high nutritional quality.

There's no Bisphenol A in our bottles!

There’s no Bisphenol A in our bottles or shakers!!!

Why is the presence of sugar proof of quality?

Unlike isomaltulose, maltodextrin is not legally considered to be a sugar.

 

Thus, to “manipulate” consumers, often frightened by a high sugar content, most industrial food manufacturers use maltodextrin. It has very little value from a nutritional point of view.

 

At Feed., we use isomaltulose, to ensure a low glycemic index, and better satiety. Don’t be concerned by the high level of sugar as many studies have shown that there are many benefits associated with isomaltulose!

 

The law concerning the labelling of sugar on food products has had to evolve to take this into account. For further information, the definition of “sugar” needs specific precisions when maltodextrin or isomaltulose are concerned. Simple sugars are monosaccharides or disaccharides. A saccharide is only a carbohydrate component, common to all carbohydrates. Monosaccharides contains one unit of sugar, disaccharides two. When there is one unit, the law considers it as a “sugar”.

 

The issue is that the lawmaker doesn’t take the glycemic index into account. Isomaltulose is a simple sugar, because it is a disaccharide made of glucose and fructose with an alpha-1,6-glycosidic bond – and has to be declared as a sugar, although our organism takes a lot of time to break it down. The glycemic index of isomaltulose is 30, which is excellent.

 

Regarding maltodextrin, it’s a complex carbohydrate – it’s a polysaccharide, composed of multiple glucose units linked with chains of different lengths. Like all complex carbohydrates, it shouldn’t be labelled as a sugar. However, maltodextrin has a glycemic index that can reach as high as 120, and therefore our body breaks it down quickly. Consequently, your appetite will not be satisfied for very long.

 

Isomaltulose, despite its high nutritional value, affects the nutrition listing. This leads to people incorrectly presuming that it has a negative effect. Rest assured, all Feed. products have been developed by nutritionists. There are no non-essential ingredients within the recipes.

Is Feed. organic?

Our original range is not organic, however, our smart food products are developed and manufactured with very strict product specifications: vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, GM-free… We use organic products as much as possible, but organic pea protein cannot be found in France. Our products are high quality, and we wish to offer top range products to our consumers.

 

Having said this, our organic range is now available and can be bought from our website!

Is soy dangerous?

Rest assured, soy is absolutely not dangerous.

 

For legal reasons we have to mention the risks associated with soybean consumption, particularly those with pregnant women.

 

However, many studies show that there is no risk, and even prove that phytoestrogens during pregnancy could protect the baby against cardiac hypertrophy in adult life.

 

Concerning men who regularly partake in sporting activities, risks linked with soybean are very much an urban myth.

 

In the past, some studies showed that the consumption of 50g of soybean protein a day (which is huge) made the testosterone production of men decrease by up to 10%. It is through this misinformation that the idea that soybean protein was bad for men has manifested.

 

However, studies have shown that unless we’re talking about a substantial amount (at least 50g of protein), soybean protein doesn’t reduce testosterone production in men. To sum up: don’t worry, there are no risks. All Feed. products were developed by dieticians and nutritionists and as a result are designed to benefit the body.

What's the difference with Soylent?

Although the concept is the same, there are actually many differences between the products produced by Soylent and Feed.

 

Feed. uses high quality ingredients that have been around for generations.

 

Soylent are proud of using GMOs and boast of it on their blog. They have a very “result-oriented” and “chemical” approach towards nutrition. It has caused them trouble in the past, with consumers who fell sick because they were not used to some of the chemical ingredients present in their products.

 

All Feed. smart food is vegan, without GMOs, gluten and lactose-free, and is made and produced in France (except the Ready-to-Drink range).

 

Soylent doesn’t necessarily correspond with European habits. French people eat 3 times a day, when Americans have perhaps 4 or 5 smaller meals. You would need two bottles of Soylent to replace a French meal, while a bottle of Feed. brings you the equivalent of a complete and nutritionally balanced meal.

 

Finally, there is the question of taste. As Soylent products have a lot of additives present, their “meals” can taste fairly artificial. At Feed. we only use natural ingredients which results in a much more natural tasting meal! 🙂

Are the almonds cooked?

In order to dehull them, the almonds have to be subjected to humid temperature. Despite this process taking place, the almonds aren’t actually “cooked”.

 

Their nutritional qualities are therefore preserved. They are then cold pressed.

 

With regards to the hazelnuts, they are lightly roasted (which is considered as cooking), before being cold pressed.

Are modified/processed starches GMOs?

Modified starches are obtained from native starches that have been processed by either chemical or physical means to give them particular properties.

 

They have nothing to do with GMOs (genetically modified organisms). To avoid any confusion they are also called “processed starches”.

 

Consumption of modified starches poses no risk to human health, they are present in the appendix of the authorised additives in the European guideline 95/2/CE.

What is the omega 3 / omega 6 ratio?

The omega 3 /omega 6 ratio is 3/1.

Are oats really gluten-free?

Pure oats are gluten-free and safe for people with a gluten intolerance.

 

However, oats are often contaminated with gluten, because they are processed in the same facilities as wheat, rye and barley. Cross contamination can happen during either transport or storage.

What about avenin?

Some studies show that most people with celiac disease or with a wheat allergy can eat 50 to 100g of pure oats a day, without having any adverse effects.

 

An eight year study which monitored over 100 patients affected with celiac disease revealed that more than half of the participants ate oats every day without ever suffering from adverse effects.

 

The issue with avenin remains:

 

Even excluding contamination, a small number of patients affected with celiac disease (and possibly other conditions) are not able to tolerate pure oats.

 

Pure oats contain avenin, a protein that can cause issues because it has an amino acid structure similar to that of gluten.

 

It is important to know that the majority of people that are sensitive to gluten do not respond to avenin. They can safely eat pure oats.

 

However, a small number of the people with celiac disease can react to avenin. For these people, gluten-free oats, even certified, can generate a reaction.

 

A study of celiac disease and oats consumption showed that the majority of people had a risk of reacting to avenin. However, only 8% of the participants noticed a reaction after having consumed large amounts of oats.

 

In these cases, the response was weak and didn’t cause either clinical symptoms nor a relapse. Thus, researchers concluded that it was safe for the patients to eat as much as 100g of pure oats a day.

What is the dextrose equivalent (D.E.)?

The lower the dextrose equivalent, the lower the glycemic index and vice versa!

 

A D.E. of zero would represent pure starch, and a D.E. of 100 would represent pure dextrose, which is a product of the complete processing of starch.

 

In summary, the higher the D.E. and I.G., the more the hydrolysis is increased, and therefore the proportion of simple sugars is high. Basically, above 100, there are only simple sugars, yet it does not show any in the nutrition information. This is a legal void operated by manufacturers within the industry.

 

Maltodextrin is always used as it is both cheap and has a high glycemic index. Consequently, there are only ever simple sugars present.

 

This is why we prefer using isomaltulose, which has a much lower glycemic index, and ensures a slow release of nutrients.

Is Feed. suitable for diabetics?

A lot of diabetic people use Feed. products. Our nutritionists worked hard to develop recipes with a low glycemic index, in order to avoid and prevent insulin peaks.

 

Consequently, our recipes have a good distribution of nutrients and a sugar content in check. In our smart food, the carbohydrates come from isomaltulose which is a high quality carbohydrate allowing a slow release of nutrients. However we cannot, for legal reasons, advise you to eat our smart food if you’re diabetic, because we are not a medical or paramedical organisation. Every person is different and we would rather recommend you see a doctor and sought their professional opinion.

Why are your products gluten-free?

Gluten, per se, is not an issue… unless for people who are sensitive or intolerant.

 

However, gluten has no nutritional interest, and many studies show that a lack of gluten makes digestion easier.

 

Therefore, we decided to create products that would benefit the highest number of people.

 

Gluten-free ingredients are more expensive, and it is not designed in any way to prejudice the consumer.

Where does the vitamin B12 come from?

Nutrients which are not already present in the raw ingredients are added to the recipes as supplements. With the vitamin B12, depending on the recipe, we use cyanocobalamin, methylcobalamin or adenosylcobalamin. Don’t worry – you will not suffer from any deficiencies!

What is the digestibility coefficient?

The digestibility coefficient is excellent and is as high as 95%! The glycemic index is rated at 22, which allows a slow release of nutrients, without triggering any insulin peak.

How is the pea protein extracted?

With regards to the pea protein, the production process is simple. After cleaning, the peas are squashed and the shell is removed. The next is the flocculation, a process adapted from potato processing. This coagulates the proteins.

I can see that agave syrup is listed among the ingredients. It has a low glycemic index but is high in fructose, given what is said about this type of sugar, where do you stand on this point?

We use agave syrup which is a natural binder with a low glycemic index, much healthier than other binders used within the food industry. We could choose between agave syrup or glycerine or poly-dextrose which are also laxatives.

Is there any added sugar in Feed. meals?

In the Feed. SPORT and BIO product ranges, there is no added sugar. In the standard line, carbohydrates come from isomaltulose which is a high quality carbohydrate that ensures a slow release of nutrients.

Do Feed. bars provide the same recommended nutritional and daily calorie intake requirements as more traditional meals?

Bars also provide the recommended nutritional values and recommended daily intake of a complete meal. They are less calorific than the drinks, but you still won’t feel hungry until your next meal. All Feed. products are designed and developed to satisfy your appetite.

Is there milk in any Feed. products?

Feed. has strict product specifications. Consequently, Feed. doesn’t contain any lactose in any of its recipes.

Is Feed. vegan?

All recipes are vegan and contain no animal parts.

Where does the salt in the drinks come from?

Salt comes from the raw materials most of the time. Should you prefer to avoid salt then you could always look to try our natural or sweet recipes.

Are the added vitamins natural?

In the standard line of products, about 80% of the nutrients come from natural ingredients. We add a vitamin mix in order to prevent any deficiencies. In our organic range, Feed. BIO, all the ingredients come from natural sources.

Can you tell me more about maltodextrin?

Maltodextrin is a lipophilic raw material. It contains encapsulating oils and trace elements that are released when they come into contact with water.

Can diabetics use Feed. products?

A lot of diabetic people use Feed. products. Our nutritionists worked hard to develop recipes with a low glycemic index in order to avoid and prevent insulin peaks. Consequently, our recipes have a good distribution of nutrients and a well regulated sugar content. In our smart food, the carbohydrates come from isomaltulose which is a high quality carbohydrate allowing a slow release of nutrients.

 

However, as we are not a medical or paramedical organisation we cannot, for legal reasons, recommend that you use our smart food. Every person is different and we recommend you see a doctor and receive their professional opinion.

How many calories are in your smart food?

There are 650 kcals in a bottle and about 400 kcals (depending on the recipe) in a bar. The formula powder+shaker comes with a spoon that allows you to prepare your own portions. Four spoons will provide you with the equivalent of a complete meal.

 

How are your products freeze-dried?

Cereals are very finely grounded. For freeze-dried products like fruits or vegetables, they are frozen before extracting water in order to maintain their nutritional value.

 

We have a produced a short video where an independent nutritionist discusses why Feed. products are complete and nutritionally balanced meals.

Processing ingredients reduces their effectiveness. Where do Feed. stand on this?

Science, and not rumours, should be trusted here. Studies show that “the processing of fibers into fine particles doesn’t impact their performance.” One of the most interesting articles on this comes from the world-famous journal ‘Gut’. The journal is produced for health professionals and researchers in gastroenterology and hepatology. Researchers compared wheat bran fibers from 0.7mm to 2mm.

 

They established that very fine fibers as well as thicker fibers only had a 2% difference in their (nutritional) performance. Moreover, the researchers stated that “small particles resulted in fewer gastric problems than thicker particles” and added that they helped increase nutrient absorption and decrease bloating, headaches and constipation.

 

How should I have the Feed. spread?

In order to receive all of the nutritional benefits of the Feed. spread, we recommend spreading 33g (roughly a teaspoon) onto 80g of bread.

How should I store the spread?

The Feed. spread lasts up to 12 months after opening. A thin layer of fat may appear on the surface of the product. This is perfectly normal and does not indicate that the product has gone off. We recommend giving the spread a quick stir before use.

 

 

Can I have the Feed. spread at any point throughout the day?

You can have the Feed. spread whenever you like! Breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as a snack! It’s as flexible as you want it to be.

What can I have the Feed. spread with?

We recommend using wholemeal bread to accompany your Feed. spread. This is because the better quality bread you use ultimately affects the nutritional value of the meal. Of course that is just our own personal preference, and you can choose to have your Feed. spread whichever way you see fit!

Is it possible to consume just Feed. products?

Although 3 smart food meals provide you with all of your nutritional requirements for one day, Feed. does not intend to entirely replace traditional food. Rather Feed. looks to provide an occasional alternative to people who don’t have the time or the opportunity to have a more traditional meal.

 

Feed. agree with nutritionists that consumers should not look to replace all their traditional meals with our products.

 

Feed. is a French brand and as most people are aware, there is a great culinary history in the country. It therefore seemed natural to look to find a way to incorporate smart food into the daily diets of our consumers.

 

Feed. will adapt to you, depending on your needs and tastes. 😁

How to use Feed.?

Feed. can replace any meal. You can consume Feed at any time.

 

Just one bar provides you with everything that you need.

 

Drinks contain the pre-measured ingredients so all you have to do is add water! 😁

 

You can also adjust the portion size if you wish, (more water for a more liquid drink, less water for a thicker one).

 

A handy tip: tilt the bottle on its side when you’re adding water. This way, the powder doesn’t get compressed at the bottom. For the “powder and shaker” format, 5 or 20 meal packs are available in our normal Feed. range, and 4 meal packs are available in our Feed. SPORT range.

 

For a complete meal, add 400ml of ambient water to your shaker and then add 4 cups of powder (a cup comes with the pack).

 

You can of course choose to portion according to your taste. 😁

Is it possible to have Feed. for breakfast?

Of course it is possible! You will start your day in the best possible way. Too many people skip breakfast, but by having a Feed. bar or drink you are providing your body with all of the nutrients it requires in order to attack the day! 😁

Why should I have a Feed. meal instead of my usual lunchtime sandwich?

Today the sandwich/soft drink meal deal costs roughly €8 if you live in Paris. Perhaps as much as €12 or more if you fancy something a little fancier.

 

Not only do you have to rush out of the office but you have to face the elements and the queues. Once you’ve made it back to base you barely have enough time to eat your meal. Stressed, sweaty, tired, even perhaps irritable. The lunch you have just gone to collect is no longer enjoyable!

 

After all this is done, you then have to face the arduous task of cleaning up. Maybe you wouldn’t mind so much if you had just had a particularly satisfying lunch, but as we all know, this isn’t always the case! The average sandwich/soft drink meal deal doesn’t even provide 25% of the benefits of one Feed. meal (vitamins, fibers, minerals…).

 

Feed. makes life easier. Try our smart food and you will almost certainly enjoy it! Your appetite will be satisfied and you will not suffer from any nutritional deficiencies. A win-win situation 😁

 

Enjoy the time you have saved to call your friends, rest, or just to be more productive and leave work earlier.

Why should I have Feed. instead of a more conventional meal?

Too lazy to do your food shop, to peel vegetables, to cook food, to clear the table, to wash the dishes or to take the rubbish out?

By consuming Feed. products you no longer have to deal with these arduous every day chores. Consuming Feed. products enables you to maximize your time and be as productive as possible.

Furthermore, a Feed. meal provides you with 100% of the vitamins, minerals, and fibers that you require. 😁

 

Does a Feed. bar really replace a meal?

A Feed. bar comfortably replaces a meal. Feed. bars are made in France, 100% vegan, allergen-free, and composed of natural ingredients (fruits, linseed, buckwheat seed, oat flakes …).

 

If you have a really big appetite, you may be more interested in our bottles which are more calorific, (20% RDA vs 33% RDA) (RDA = recommended dietary allowance per day).

 

But you should not just take note of the calories which merely act as an energy indicator.

 

In addition to the 33% of RDA of all vitamins, minerals, trace elements, 20% RDA of carbohydrates and 20% RDA of lipids, a Feed. bar provides 40% of the RDA of proteins and 30% of the RDA of fibers. These last two elements contribute to satisfying the consumers appetite.

 

Since smart food first appeared on the market, we tend to observe everything to the nearest milligram.  However, a Feed. bar will always be more balanced and nutritionally beneficial than 95% of the meals that active people consume (e.g. sandwiches, salads, fast foods, etc…)

 

To get the perfect RDA percentage, as with Feed. drinks, there is fractional lack of carbohydrates and fats. They will be largely offset by the two other daily meals, since they are the most common nutrients in a “traditional” diet.

Hot or cold water?

We recommend ambient water be used in both the bottles and shakes. Warm water can damage the folic acid, or some sensitive enzymes and vitamins. But if you are particularly keen then you’re obviously more than welcome to give it a go! 😁

Can I use milk instead of water?

The products are designed to be mixed with ambient water in order to maximize the efficiency of the mixing process. However, some of our consumers choose to use milk instead. Particularly those who are looking to have more protein in their diets. 😁

Is Feed. suitable for children and pregnant women?

Pregnant women and children don’t have exactly the same nutritional needs.

Feed. products are healthy and natural, but for precautionary measures, pregnant women should avoid some vitamins and minerals excess. Vitamin A for example, could present a risk to the foetus. Soybean also contains phytoestrogens, that could interfere with the mother and baby’s hormonal system.

 

Our products being a source a of Vitamin A, we strongly recommend that you watch your consumption of this vitamin and seek advice from your doctor.

 

Finally, our products do not present any risk for the health of children, however, Feed. can not be considered as an alternative to balanced meals for young growing chilren.

What is the sell by date for Feed. products?

All our normal and organic smart food ranges last up to year if stored correctly at room temperature.

 

However, the Ready-to-Drink range has a shelf life of 9 months.

 

It’s worth noting that there’s no need to put any of our products in the fridge.

 

However, once you open a drink you must consume it within 12 hours. For bars, they must be consumed within a 48 hour period.

You say your products cover the recommended daily intake. However, men and women have different needs! How do you address this?

It’s as if you were going to the restaurant, there isn’t a rib roast for bulky men and a rib roast for tiny ladies. We follow EFSA guidelines.

 

Meals are overloaded in nutrients, which brings the necessary satiety to every consumer. You won’t be hungry until your next meal.

 

Alternatively, you can choose to use a shaker and dose to your convenience. Should you wish, you could put 5 cups as opposed to 4, or 3 instead of 4…

Who has tasted Feed.?

Do I risk losing my teeth if I eat only liquid food?

Is Feed. suitable for athletes?

A large number of athletes use Feed. SPORT meals! These meals contain 50g of protein with 4 times less sugar than regular Feed. products. It really is the best meal for athletes of any level.

I don't have the time to have breakfast in the morning! Which product should I choose? A bar or a drink?

It really depends on what you prefer.

 

There isn’t one product that is better suited for specific meals.

 

1 bar = 1 meal and 1 drink = 1 meal.

 

Some of our consumers eat bars for breakfast, drinks for lunch, and others like to do the reverse 🙂

Can consumption of Feed. products cause weight gain?

There is absolutely no risk of weight gain as a Feed. meal contains everything that you require!

 

If you don’t indulge between meals, you will naturally reach your ideal weight, without any deficiency.

 

We have a great number of consumers who use Feed. products every day and we have never had any feedback from them regarding weight-gain issues! In many cases they tell us they lost up to 2 or 3 kg within a few weeks.

Can I consume exclusively Feed. products?

It is indeed possible from a medical/nutritional point of view as you will not suffer from any nutritional deficiencies.

 

But our goal is not to substitute all meals with Feed. products, but rather to offer a healthy alternative.

What about my appetite?

You won’t be hungry between meals. The very low glycemic index of our ingredients allows a slow release of nutrients, without any insulin peak.

 

There’s an overload of nutrients and you are guaranteed to feel full up until at least your next meal.

 

The drink isn’t liquid, but thick, with delicious bits to chew. You may also try the bars, which are much chewier. We have over 100,000 satisfied Feed. users. Give it a go and see what all the fuss is about… 🙂

What about chewing?

There is indeed chewing required with Feed. products. Be it in either the bottles or bars, there are always bits to chew; whether it be vegetables, fruits or even chocolate chips… 🙂

Where is the cup in the powder/shaker format?

Have a good look for it! It may be at the bottom of the bag! 🕵 🧐

Sometimes I have lumps in my bottle/shaker. How can this be prevented?

With regards to the bottles, the technique is to tilt it slightly whilst you’re adding the water. This way, the powder doesn’t become compressed at the bottom.

 

With the shakers, you have to put the water in first and then add the powder.

 

I have had digestion issues after having consumed a Feed. product. Is this normal?

You may require two or three meals for your organism to get used to Feed. products.

 

The reason is simple: 98% of people don’t eat enough fiber. So, when they start using Feed. they ingest more fibers than they’re normally used to.

 

It is a good sign if your organism reacts, it shows that you have had some nutrient deficiencies. After 2, 3 or even maybe 4 Feed. meals, you won’t have any more difficulties.

I have an issue with my shaker. What should I do?

We designed the seal to be removable to make it easy to clean. Consequently the shaker can be stored without the risk of mould.

 

A few other shaker brands use seals that cannot be removed and they often become mouldy. These seals cannot be easily removed due to health reasons – e.g. small children may swallow the parts.

 

However, there’s a disadvantage to this feature. After some time, the seal can move from its original position if the consumer doesn’t place it properly in place each time.

Can I use Feed. SPORT even if I don't exercise?

There is 50g of protein per portion in a Feed. SPORT meal. For example, if you weigh 70kg, you will need at least 70g of protein a day.

How do I prepare my Feed. SPORT shaker?

The simplest way is to order a 1l shaker. If you have a 750ml shaker you will have to mix on two separate occasions.

 

Add 600ml of water into your shaker. Add 3 cups of powder and shake vigorously. Add the 2 remaining cups and shake again to obtain a homogeneous mix.

 

Your Feed. SPORT meal is now ready! Enjoy…
