Bodylogix sells a line of workout supplements, including both whey and vegan protein powder.
I ordered a tub of the vegan Bodylogix protein powder and put it to the test – here is my detailed review.
I’ve scored the protein powder in 4 main areas, as I do with all the protein powders I review. They are based on objective measurements and calculations whenever possible.
As you can see from the overall score, you might want to take a look at some other plant based protein powders. Here is my summary page of the best tasting vegan protein powders.
To start with, I score each protein powder based on their nutritional content.
Since it is a protein powder, the most important thing is that it has as much protein as possible.
The formula I use is shown below, and reflects that:
Basically, it takes the number of calories from protein, divides that by the total number of calories, and then scales it relative to other protein powders with a score out of 25.
Using the data from the nutrition label, we can calculate the nutrition score for Bodylogix:
Plugging in 100 calories from 25 grams of protein, and 140 total calories, we get a nutrition score of 19.64.
To put this in context, understand that a score of 25 means that a protein powder has as high of a protein content as you’ll find in a plant based protein powder.
So a score of 20 means that Bodylogix has a very high protein content (more than most), just not quite as high as a few others.
Here’s the full ingredients list, it’s pretty short:
- Vegan protein blend (yellow pea protein isolate, organic sprouted whole grain brown rice protein concentrate, organic hemp protein concentrate, potato protein isolate, chia protein), erythritol, evaporated cane juice, natural flavors, cellulose gum, xanthan gum, carrageenan, potassium chloride and stevia leaf extract.
The only ingredient that really stands out is carrageenan, which there are some serious safety concerns about. Personally, I avoid it whenever possible, but you have to decide for yourself if you care either way.
Bodylogix only offers one size for their vegan protein powder (840 g / 1.85 lb).
To compare prices of protein powders fairly, I need to pick a specific size to look at. Since most companies offer one close to 1 kg (or 2.2 lb), I use the price per 100 grams of the closest one to that amount, and put it in this formula:
Doing this yields a price score of 19.5.
As with all the scores, this is out of a maximum of 25 points (where 25 is the cheapest you’ll get). So a score of 19.5 is very good, and puts Bodylogix on the less expensive end of protein powders, although there are some that are cheaper still.
An important part of a protein shake is how well it mixes.
Although it’s related to taste, I put it as its own section because it’s very important, and varies depending on how you mix your shake (blender, bottle, spoon, etc.).
The mixability score gives you a way to fairly compare protein powders because they’re all tested using the same procedure:
- 450 mL of unsweetened almond milk is added to a shaker bottle.
- 35 grams of protein is added.
- Shake for 45 seconds.
- Use a strainer to separate out the clumps.
- Weigh the clumps (“remnants”).
After that, the following formula transforms the weight of the clumps into a score out of 25, where a 25 means it mixed perfectly.
In this case, it completely clogged my typical strainer:
As you can see from the picture, it didn’t form typical clumps, instead it made thick chalky masses that couldn’t get through the holes.
So I redid the test using a larger strainer with slightly larger holes.
It still didn’t mix too well, but it at least all drained through:
There was a total of 7 grams of remnants. Plugging that into a formula yields a mixability score of 3.125.
In other words, it mixes worse than most other protein powders.
Up last is the taste score.
This is a subjective score, although I try to be as unbiased and consistent as possible.
The following table guides how I give each protein powder a score:
|25||Amazing, would drink for enjoyment alone.|
|15||Drinkable, not really good or bad.|
|10||A bit of a struggle to get down|
In this case, it was incredibly chalky as noted above. This is a big turn off for some people, while others don’t mind.
The taste aside from that is okay, but it’s not great compared to other powders.
Putting all that together, I believe that Bodylogix should score a 10-15 based on that chart, but ultimately I feel that it is closer to 15.
Therefore, I gave the protein powder a taste score of 15.
Other Vegan Protein Powders You Might Want to Consider
Bodylogix isn’t a bad supplement, but I’ve tried many others that are better overall, and have the same positive qualities that Bodylogix does.
Here are my top 3 recommended alternatives that are relatively cheap and high in protein like Bodylogix, but taste and mix better:
- PlantFusion (86/100 rating) – Only a fraction more expensive than Bodylogix, but is the best tasting protein powder I’ve reviewed (out of 20+) so far. It also mixes perfectly, and has an above average protein content. Feel free to see my PlantFusion review for more detail.
- NOW Sports Pea Protein (82/100 rating) – Not only is it cheaper than Bodylogix, it also has a higher protein content. On top of that, the taste is decent (not amazing, but not bad), and it mixes perfectly. My NOW Sports pea protein review breaks down the individual review scores.
- MRM Veggie Elite (77/100 rating) – MRM Veggie Elite tastes similar to Bodylogix, it’s drinkable, but not really enjoyable. However, it mixes perfectly, while also being a tiny bit cheaper than Bodylogix, and having a slightly higher protein score. Check out my full MRM Veggie Elite review for specific details.
Summary and Overall Review Impressions
Bodylogix vegan protein powder is above average in most areas. It mixes well enough, and it has solid protein content, and is available for a relatively cheap price.
The only big complaint is the taste. It’s very chalky and the taste itself isn’t good.
However, it’s still drinkable, and a good option if those other 3 factors are more important to you than taste.
