Product Questions

  • Can Vega One™ help me lose weight?

    We love this question because we get to talk about nutrient-density (a.k.a. high nutrient-to-low calorie ratio). Vega One is a nutrient dense food, so you can use it any way that you would use a food. You can enjoy it on its own or as a part of your favorite smoothie. You can even cook with it, making pancakes or muffins. We love Vega One because it tastes great, is satisfying and offers 20 grams plant-based protein, greens, fiber, and more in 170 calories or less (150 for Natural flavor).
  • I lost my scoop. How much should I eat?

    Between 3-4 Tbsp. For the exact amount, check out this full list of serving sizes by Tablespoon
  • Do you have any stevia-free products?

    We choose stevia because we think it’s the best available no calorie sweetener. But we know it’s not for everyone so based on feedback from Vega fans like you we’re happy to announce that we now offer Unsweetened Natural Vega One™, and Plain Unsweetened Vega® Protein & Greens and Vega® Protein Smoothie, which are all stevia-free. For a full list of stevia-free Vega products, click here.
    • How much caffeine in Vega products?

      Vega’s plant-based protein powders Chocolate and Mocha flavors all have less than 25mg of caffeine from cocoa powder. For . Vega Sport® Pre-Workout Energizer, and Vega Sport® Sugar-Free Energizer both have 100mg of caffeine, from green tea and yerba maté, per serving.
    • Can Vega One be used as a meal replacement?

      Vega One™ is a food—so you can enjoy it anytime you would eat other foods you love—meals, snacks or anywhere in between. Check the Nutrition Facts Panel to ensure that it has the amounts of macro and micronutrients that you are looking for.
    • Can I use expired product?

      We have a robust Quality Assurance program that methodically tests our products up to the expiry date. We do not recommend using expired products.
      • Can I use Vega® with a nut allergy?

        Vega® plant-based protein powders do not use nuts as ingredients, however they are not produced in a certified nut-free facility. For that reason we cannot make the claim that our nutritional shakes are nut free. Speak to your health care practitioner if you have a nut (or other) allergy before using Vega products. If you’re concerned about an allergen that isn’t listed on the ingredient list, check out this to learn more.

      • Why do the instructions say mix with a non-dairy beverage? Can I mix it with milk?

        Being a plant-based company, we recommend non-dairy beverages such as almond, hemp, coconut, or rice milk (to name a few) with all of our products, but by no means is this the end all, be all. If you like dairy, go for it! If you’re looking for a new recipe, start at the Vega Recipe Center.
      • What happens if I blend my silica pack?

        If you are concerned about a blended silica pack, please call your doctor. While we're sure this made your smoothie extra thick, there’s nothing to be concerned about. The silica-based desiccant packet in Vega® products is non-toxic. While not recommended to eat, no adverse reactions are expected if the desiccant is accidentally swallowed. Silica is a naturally-occurring mineral that is processed into a silica packet. Since it is a moisture-absorbing substance, if you drank most of your smoothie before you discovered you blended the silica pack into it, drink an additional amount of water throughout the day to help you stay hydrated.
      • Can I take Vega® products if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

        We always recommend you check with your healthcare practitioner on whether or not you personally should use Vega® products while pregnant or breastfeeding. To learn more about why, check out this blog post


        • Are Vega® products organic?

          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 sacha inchi protein. Vega One is made with a variety of certified organic ingredients including gelatinized maca root, acacia gum, broccoli, kale, spirulina, marine algae, pomegranate, goji and macqui.

        • Is my product expired?

          If you’re wondering – is my product expired? Is this date March or May? We’re here to help with all you need to decode your product expiration (best by) date.

          Vega® product expiration dates are listed in the following format:
          DD/MM/YYYY (date/month/year)

          And each month is given the following 2 letter abbreviation:

          • JA: January
          • FE: February
          • MR: March
          • AL: April
          • MA: May

          • NO: November
          • DE: December

          For example, your box of Vega® Protein Snack Bars has a BB (best by) date of 03/NO/2019 that means you can enjoy these bars up to their expiry of Nov 3 2019

        • Can I give Vega® plant-based protein shakes to my children?

          We recommend speaking to your pediatrician first to determine if a particular Vega® product is right for your child. To learn more about why, check out this article.

          • Why can’t I checkout?

            What’s the catch? It’s actually the cache! The cache is your browser’s history stored by the Internet. This is stored to help your web experience run smooth(ie). So, if you’ve visited a site more than once your computer can save time by not having to download the same files twice. How does this affect my visit on myvega.com?
