Annique Rooibos Lifestyle Shake – 300g

You might have heard some say that weightloss is 80% what you eat and 20% exercise, and there is a whole lot of truth in that. The amount of calories you burn during an hour of cardio kickboxing or a quick 5km does not equate to the amount you consume on a daily basis, which makes keeping an eye on what you eat and drink imperative if you’re working toward shedding a few kilos before bikini season.

Annique Lifestyle Shakes contain Rooibos extract and a comprehensive list of essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins and fats to give you lots of energy.

It also helps to curb unhealthy cravings between meals.

Using the shake as a meal replacement once or twice a day is a delicious and healthy way to lose weight. Instead of that weak feeling that often goes hand-in-hand with dieting, you will find that you feel stronger because each serving provides slow absorbing calcium and milk protein that ensures a sustained release of amino acids that is important for muscle growth and recovery.

This unique formula, with its distinct mix of complex carbohydrates and essential fats, ensures that energy levels are sustained without triggering a spike in blood sugar levels. This helps to keep your metabolism high and reduce fat storage.

Annique created the Lifestyle Shake over 40 years ago in association with the prestigious South African Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. The Shake is not just a slimming tool, but a healthy and versatile addition to any diet. The Lifestyle Shake can be a valuable addition to the diets of people with ADD or ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).

The product is in a powdered form and can be mixed with milk or yogurt to replace meals when you want to lose weight.

Here are some of the vital benefits of the Annique Shake:

  • Antioxidants to help remove ageing and disease-causing free radicals from the body (Vitamins A,C,E and nicotinamide)
  • Stress control with the perfect combination of B-vitamins to support your heart’s health
  • Calcium absorption is supported by vitamin D3 and magnesium and is therefore ide for the aged or people who are restricted to indoor activities
  • Increased metabolism with vitamin B-complex to increase energy levels and promote weightloss
  • Reduces PMS and swelling during menstruation
  • Gluten free

Available in four delicious flavours, namely strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, and café crème.

Just remember to AVOID all refined carbohydrates (e.g. sugar, pasta, potatoes, rice, breads, cakes, cookies, chocolate etc.) and do not eat more than two fruit portions per day but ensure you eat lots of green leafy and red vegetables. Herbs could also benefit your weightloss program.

Q: What is the difference between the new and previous Shake formulas?

A: The new Shake formula contains:

  • Palatinose™, a naturally sourced smart carbohydrate. It provides sustained energy and increases fat oxidation by providing a source of balanced carbohydrate energy in support of a healthy lifestyle.
  • The old Shake contained Acesulfame K and sorbitol as sweeteners. The new formula contains stevia. Stevia is one of the best low glycemic sweeteners around. It is derived from the leaves of the stevia plant and is 40 times sweeter than sugar. It is a highly effective alternative for a healthy lifestyle.
  • The new Shake contains apple fibre (before it was chicory). Apple fibre is easier to digest and acts as a prebiotic.

This makes for a new improved Shake, without compromising on one of the unique selling points of this incredible product, namely the taste. The new Shake formula provides the following benefits above the old:

  • More sustainable energy due to upgraded carb content
  • Healthier sweetener (stevia)
  • Better digestible apple fibre

Q: Why does the new Shake label and ingredient list differ from the old?

A: The previous Shake packaging information was not compliant to the Food Labelling Regulations and Guidelines of South Africa. It was outdated and, in some instances, even incorrect, like for instance the carb content and the ingredient listing. According to the regulations the nutritional information stipulation needs to comply to a specific format and needs to declare all the ingredients in the product. With the new improved formula, we have updated the label with the correct format and information. As the formula has been improved, the new label will not correspond with the old label and there will be more detail on the new label.

Q: Why is there iodine on the new label?

A: The source of the iodine source is the milk powder (skin and full cream) with which the Shake is made. It is not an added ingredient; it occurs naturally in milk in small quantities. The Shake has always contained iodine, but this was not reflected on the label. Remember this is a minute amount of iodine, which can be beneficial to many people, and a few individuals could have allergies to it. We are obliged by law to state in on the label.

Q: Why is there more carbs in the new Shake than in the old?

A: The carbs stated on the old Shake was incorrect. Hence the need to upgrade the formula and use the Palatinose™ smart carb as a carb for sustained energy.

Q: Why did we change the size of the Shake from 500g to 300g

A: The price point on the Shake is perceived to be high. For a new customer, paying R519 for a Shake is seen to be expensive, especially if you haven’t tried or tasted it. The 300g tub is offers a more accessible price point of R339 is much more attractive.  The factory that made our pouches burnt down in the July 2021 riots and looting, so we had to convert the Shakes to a smaller size faster than anticipated, but the plan was still to downsize the Shake in order to make it more accessible.

Why does the Shake sometimes have a gritty (sand-like) feel if you drink it immediately after mixing?

The new smart carbohydrate Palitinose has a slightly rougher texture compared to the old formula. This texture, however, does not last long before it dissolves. We suggest letting the Shake stand for 1 -2 minutes before consuming. Also, shake the Shake powder in the jar/container before scooping out, to help disperse the powder evenly in every serving.

Why does the Chocolate Shake sometimes have a bitter aftertaste?

The bitter aftertaste is caused by the real cocoa powder in the formulation, which gives it its delicious taste. We suggest shaking the tub before using to help disperse the powder evenly in every serving.
