About Kenko Meals

What is KENKO Meals and when should I use it?

KENKO Meals are complete and healthy drinkable meals. They contain enough calories to replace a meal, as well as the protein, carbohydrates, good fats, fibers and all the vitamins and minerals you need. You can use KENKO Meals to replace one, several or all meals in a day. Our healthy meal replacement shakes can be convenient to use for many people:

  • People who do not have time to have breakfast in the morning.

  • People overwhelmed at work, who do not have time to stop to eat.

  • Workers on the road or outdoors and who do not have easy access to a refrigerator or microwave.

  • Athletes who want to have the energy they need for their activity.

  • Outdoor expedition fans, in search of healthy foods that are light to carry.

  • New parents who are short on time.

How to prepare the healthy meal to drink?

1) Put the Kenko blend in the shake bottle. You can use the measuring lines on the shake botte OR the small compostable cup inside the bag.

Snack/Breakfast : 200 ml (75g) (1 cup and a half of our small compostable cup inside the bag)
Regular : 300 ml (125g) (2 cup and a half of our small compostable cup inside the bag)
Active : 400 ml (175g)  (3 cup and a half of our small compostable cup inside the bag)

2) Add water : 

Snack/Breakfast : 175 ml 
Regular : 275 ml

3) Turn the bottle upside down and tap on the bottom until the powder falls in the water 

4) Shake Well

Tips :

* It is best to let the mixture sit for 5 minutes before eating for a better texture.

* You can change the amount of water slightly according to your taste and the consistency you prefer. If you prepare the meal hours in advance, you might prefer to add a little bit more water.

* The meal can be done with any temperature water, but will be even better with cold water.

* Once prepared, the meal can be kept for 2 hours at room temperature or up to 48 hours in the refrigerator.

* Putting the meal for 1 hour or more in the refrigerator will give it a consistency of a delicious smoothie.

Is KENKO Meals enough for my nutritional needs?

An adult's calorie needs are estimated at around 2,000 calories a day, but varies greatly depending on your age, gender and level of physical activity.

Kenko Meals is available in three different formats, so you can choose the one that fits best your needs. You can also use different formats depending on the time of the meal or your activity level of the day. 

Regular Size: The classic format contains 520 calories and is great for replacing any meal of the day. 

Snack Size: The snack format contains 310 calories and is ideal if you do not need a full meal. 

Active Size: The active format contains 730 calories and is perfect if you are an active person.

How is KENKO Meals different from other meal replacement shakes?

Most meal replacements on the market are ultra-processed products. Each macronutrient is isolated in the laboratory and synthetic vitamins are then added, making the list of ingredients filled with words difficult to understand. While we can create a lab product that seems to provide optimal nutrition on paper, the science of nutrition is much more complex. Real ingredients interact with each other in a way that can not be replicated in the laboratory and provide many other benefits, like antioxidants.

The science of nutrition is relatively young and other discoveries are yet to come. By using real foods from different food groups, we ensure that KENKO Meals replicate a healthy diet that is as natural as possible and that contains all the elements necessary for good health, even those that are not yet discovered. This will not be the case for products created in laboratory.

For how long can KENKO Meals keep me full?

Our healthy meal replacement shake will support you as long as a real meal containing a similar number of calories could do, in average between 4 to 6 hours. It depends on your individual needs, appetite and your level of activity.

If you drink your meal replacement too quickly, it is possible that you are still hungry immediately after, as it takes a while for the body to send satiety signals. Wait a few minutes and you will be more than satisfied.

How do I store KENKO Meals and how long does it last?

Dehydrating food is a food preservation method older than the invention of refrigerators. The healthy meal replacement shake can be stored for about 6 months in its pouch, and that, without any preservatives! The compostable pouch should ideally be stored at a temperature between 10 and 25°C (50°-77°F). You can keep the pouch temporarily at higher or cooler temperatures, but if storage conditions are not met, the product may not be stored for as long as the expiration date written on the packaging. Once the meal replacement shake is prepared with water, it will keep its freshness for about 2 hours at room temperature and up to 48 hours in the refrigerator.

Can I buy KENKO Meals already prepared with water?

No. For the moment, the healthy meal replacement shakes are only sold in dehydrated form. The fact that the meal replacement is not mixed with water allows it to be stored much longer without preservatives and without the need for refrigeration. This allows you to easily keep it at home for several months and carry it everywhere with you, even when you want to travel light or you do not have access to a refrigerator.

Do KENKO Meals contain allergens?

Our healthy meal replacement shake is made with oat flour that is not gluten free. The product also contains almonds, walnuts, cashews and Brazil nuts that may not be suitable for people with nut allergies. Some ingredients are packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy and sesame seeds. Lactose intolerant people should also refrain from consuming this product since it contains milk. A lactose-free version will be available soon. Contact us if you want to be informed when this product will be available.

Are KENKO Meals vegan?

Although our healthy meal replacement shake does not contain meat, it contains milk and milk proteins that come from the cow. 

Milk and its proteins contain several nutrients and it is much more difficult to obtain a product providing all the important nutritional elements for health by not using any animal product. Most 100% vegan products contain far more synthetic ingredients and vitamins or are considered more of a food supplement than a real meal replacement. In addition, sometimes the taste of vegan proteins may not be very good. 

For people that are not vegan, KENKO Meals therefore offers a healthy and delicious solution to save time. 

For those who have chosen not to consume any animal product, we have not forgotten you and we are working hard to offer you a 100% vegan and lactose-free version that will be just as nutritious and delicious. Contact us if you want to be informed when this new product will be available.

Is KENKO eco-friendly?

Yes, every pouch is compostable and every box you receive (including the tape) is recyclable so we can minimize our impact on the planet.

Can KENKO Meals help me lose weight?

Of course! To lose weight, you must consume fewer calories than you burn. Here's how our healthy meal replacement shakes can help you lose weight: 

  • A controlled portion: you are certain not to overeat.

  • No added sugar.

  • Real, quality ingredients: not all calories are equal and eating real foods is much more effective for weight loss than products that call themselves '' diet '' or '' slimming ''.

  • An ideal blend of protein, complex carbohydrates, good fats and fiber to support you until the next meal without being hungry.

  • A healthy and nutritious meal: When you want to lose weight, you must eat less, but the body still needs nutrients. Each calorie ingested must therefore be the most nutritious possible

Does KENKO Meals contain caffeine?
No, none of the KENKO products contain caffeine.
Is KENKO certified organic?
No, KENKO Meals do not currently have the organic certification. However, some of the ingredients are organic and all the suppliers of our ingredients are chosen with care. For a start-up company like ours, the costs and the constraints of organic certification are not currently worth it and we prefer to offer you an equally healthy product, at a better price.
