The Ultimate Meal Replacement List

What is a good Soylent alternative? What is the best Soylent alternative in Europe? What meal replacement is good for beginners? What are the best American meal replacements?…

Forums, Reddit and similar tend to be spammed with this questions in a weekly basis. I kept answering them in an individually, “Hey, here you have some good Keto shakes…”; “Hi, this brands offer vegan products”; or “this are some of the best Huel alternatives“.

I want to generate an easy access database. However, I do not currently have the time or the technical knowledge required for such a project. Therefore, I just want to share my personal meal replacement list.

I hope this list will help people to realize there are tons of brands out there creating different products (bars, ready -to-drinks, powders, nootropics…) and no unique brand or shake is right for everybody. I know it requires some self-research afterwards, but here you go: the ultimate meal replacement brands list.

Note: There will eventually be reviews for all of these, here in Latestfuels. For now only those with a link do.

DISCLAIMER: “Dude, why is X meal replacement not mentioned?”; “Why does this brand have Y rating?”; or “Z information is wrong”. All comments and corrections are welcome. I am a human after all, I make mistakes. Please let me know in the comments section below.

Comments:

It is interesting to see the amount of brands in Europe and how they are distributed. So interesting that I ended up writing an article about the importance of the variety in the European meal replacement market, and why your choices matter.

Even if there are more brands, thery are less specific brands; for example, keto focused brands or brands directed to an specific niche are more rare (than in the US). They tend to be more generic, have more products and flavours.

There is a strong keto meal replacement industry in the USA.

Unfortunately, there is not much choice in OCE.

Worldwide shipping is often not viable. Even if the companies do offer shipping to your country the expenses will be astronomical (likely higher than the cost of the product). Only USA-EU shipping seems to work better. Even CAN has many problems with importing products with huge duty taxes.

Find the best meal replacement shakes in your region.

Unfortunately, the list of options for Canadians has shrunk again. Biolent shipped out its last few bags in the past month.
