Redcon1 bring you a product like no other in the form of their Real Whole Food powder called MRE which completely dairy free too!
Meal replacements and mass gainers will never be the same again now that MRE has arrived. Redcon1 have taken it to a whole new level and no longer will you have to chose a meal replacement or mass gainer that has been crammed with cheap fillers and needless nutrients just to bulk out the calorie content.
The nutrient profile of MRE boasts one of the most impressive and diverse profiles you will ever see and furthermore the taste has been perfected too! Now we must reiterate that MRE is made from Whole Foods which is the first of its kind and contains zero whey protein so you down have to worry yourself about any potential dairy allergies.
So lets jump straight it and see what whole foods are used in the MRE meal replacement. First off lets take a look at the protein content;
Protein - Delivering 47g per serving
Now like most you thinking how is this even possible? Chicken and Salmon protein in a shake?! Well its happened thanks to the guys at Glanbia who provide Redcon1 with the powder and the taste and mixability is fantastic. The salmon in particular has the fats removed from the source which avoids poor taste and mixing. Obviously we know the fats in salmon are great but don't worry MRE has that base covered so keep reading! The amino acids content and quality is off the chart with the protein in MRE and per serving you are consuming an incredible 47g!
Carbohydrates - Delivering 75g per serving
> Rolled Oats
> Sweet Potato
> Goji Berry
MRE contains no cheap filling sugars that can often be found in many 'Meal Replacement' and 'Mass Gainer' shakes on the market. Redcon1 have used high quality sources of carbohydrates and even delivers 8g of dietary fibre per serving too, increasing absorption and utilisation of the ingredients. So a predominantly complex carbohydrate blend although you will still get 5g of natural sugars which will come from the blueberry's and goji berry which also offer antioxidant benefits too! A nutrient dense formula that really is in a class of its own.
Healthy Fats - Delivering 4g per serving
> MCT Oil
So with the removal of fats from the salmon it was important to introduce a healthy source of fats to ensure it really does cover the Whole Food basis. What better source than MCT oil which can provide a steady flow of energy and improve insulin sensitivity.
Last but not least the final component to the blend is Coconut water which is a great source of electrolytes to assist in hydration
Now when you consider what you are now getting from each serving with the quality of nutrients involved you can really see that there is nothing currently like this and MRE can a great addition to anyones training regime / lifestyle. Not only can it make life easier in hitting your macros, boosting nutrient content and improving satiety levels but it is also hugely cost effective in the grand scheme of things. 25 servings per container delivering 47g of top quality protein, 75g of complex carbohydrates and 525 calories. It even has the versatility to reduce the serving size where needed and can you can still be in the knowing that protein and carbohydrate levels are still high.
With 2 fantastic flavours to choose from you have the option to switch it up every other tub too! Both flavours, Sweet Potato Pie and Blueberry Cobbler have been nailed which comes as an even bigger surprise when you consider the nutrients involved!

As a company we do not sell many 'mass gainers' as too often we see neglect for quality with focus being on cheap carbohydrate sources and fillers. The ingredients in the MRE are insanely impressive and and offer the perfect balance and ratio for most of us when it comes to the macros. What we also like is that the MRE also offers versatility and even reducing the serving to 2 or 3 scoops can still deliver 23.5g- 35g of protein per serving meaning it can break up the day for most of us. Whether we need a small snack to keep us ticking or something more substantial the MRE can help you out. The satiety is also great which is a result of the rolled oats content and the 8g of fibre it delivers. Both flavours offer something a little different but both mix and taste extremely good! For convenience and busy individuals or anyone struggling to consume enough calories in the day, we highly recommend the MRE by Redcon1
