Post Are Boost meal replacement drinks any good?

Hello everyone,

I wanted to know if these meal replacement drinks are safe. Sometimes I drink one only if I missed a meal.
do they contain any aspartame?

Thank you!

I don't think any of the Boost brand contains aspartame, but you may want to carefully check the label to be safe.

Obviously, it's healthier to have a real meal in most cases, but the ocassional meal replacement is safe in my opinion. I would consider other brands such as:

or [url="http://mafgroup.securedata.net/catalog/phils/philsshakes_can.shtml"]http://mafgroup.securedata.net/catalog/phils/philsshakes_can.shtml[/url] -- + a multivitamin/mineral supplement

There are quite a few brands of meal replacements out there that are free of artificial flavors/additives/sweeteners/colorings, etc.
