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.
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:
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:
|Size||Cost (USD)||Cost per 100 gram|
|840 g / 1.85 lb||23.74||2.83|
That was the price when I was writing this review.
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:
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:
Amazing, would drink for enjoyment alone.
Drinkable, not really good or bad.
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.
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.
