310 Salted Caramel Shake Vs. Quest Salted Caramel Shake
Calorie, Fat, & Sugar Content Per Serving
310 Shake: 1 serving of the 310 salted caramel shake powder contains an average of 90 calories and 1.5 grams of fat and zero grams of sugar.
Quest: 1 serving of Quest salted caramel shake powder contains around 100 calories and zero grams of fat and zero grams of sugar.
Winner: Both of the meal replacement shakes are very similar in nutritional content. Neither contain sugar and both are 100 calories or less with 310 shakes being lower in calories. 310 shakes also contain 1.5 grams of fat which is vital for fat-soluble vitamins and minerals to be absorbed by the body correctly. The small amount of fat also helps keep you satiated for slightly longer than zero fat shakes.
310 Shake: 1 scoop of the 310 shake powder contains 15 grams of protein per serving.
Quest: 1 scoop of Quest powder contains 22 grams of protein per serving.
Winner: It would be easy to think that Quest meal replacement shakes are superior due to their 22 grams of protein per shake, however, this is a classic case of quantity over quality. 310’s tri-plex plant-based proteins are suitable for vegetarians, contain zero lactose or dairy, and offer a high quality, nutrient-rich source of protein. If mixed with milk or yogurt you are left with a superior protein blend which will contain all you need to keep your muscles strong.
310 Shake: 1 scoop of the 310 meal replacement shake powder has 5 grams of fiber.
Quest: 1 scoop of Quest meal replacement shake powder contains less than 1 gram of fiber.
Winner: 310 Shake for having more fiber, since fiber is an important part of any meal replacement shake and helps with stabilizing the body’s blood glucose levels. When blood sugar is kept stable, cravings and hunger pangs are drastically reduced. Fiber is also important in maintaining regular bowel movements.
Shakes from 310 Nutrition: The overall nutritional composition of the 310 shake contains all you need plus more for a healthy meal replacement shake. High-grade vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients are specially blended with a mix of 11 superfoods, probiotics, pea powder protein, hemp protein, brown rice protein, zero sugar and just the right amount of fat.
Quest: The ingredients of the Quest salted caramel meal replacement shake are limited. You will receive a good dose of protein, calcium, phosphorous, and iron. However, it is lacking any other vitamins or minerals vital for maintaining a healthy and balanced body. There are zero probiotics, zero antioxidants, and very little fiber.
Winner: The 310 meal replacement shake is the clear winner when compared to the quest salted caramel shake due to its high quality and high quantity of added beneficial extras.
Cost of the Shake
310 Shake: The 310 shake costs $68 for a pouch which contains an average of 28 servings. Each serving equates to just $2.43 per shake. Well worth it for the ingredients it contains.
Quest: The Quest pouch costs $39.99 and contains roughly 32 servings. This equates to roughly $1.25 per serving.
Winner: While the Quest meal replacement shakes cost $28.01 less, the lack of quality ingredients is reflected in this as it contains nothing beneficial other than the protein powder. The 310 shake costs slightly more, but contains a true meal replacement that is well balanced nutritionally.
The 310 shake provides you with a complete meal replacement in each serving and satisfies your body’s daily requirements. While the Quest meal replacement shakes are much more budget-friendly, they lack many of the important body healthy nutrients, especially when on a calorie controlled diet. If you are on a tight budget, then the Quest shakes will suffice for the intended purpose. If you are more flexible with your budget then the 310 shakes will fulfill all of your requirements.
Both shakes are equal in flavor and provide a true salted caramel experience while sacrificing the sugar and high amounts of calories usually found in real salted caramel.
