    Summary

    Special K has been trying to become synonymous with weight loss. They have been pushing it with all forms of media, and have even branched out of the cereal aisle and started to promote snacks, drinks, and shakes. As with any branded option, it’s important to take the claims to task, as they may not deliver on the promised results.

    Each shake has 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, which isn’t too bad, but less than optimal. The lost cost entry doesn’t tout itself too heavy with marketing, and that price point may be why it’s gaining in popularity with many people. The ingredients start to reveal a bigger picture, however, and that’s important to note.

    Ingredients

    Acesulfame-K This form of potassium salt contains methylene chloride, which is a known carcinogen. Other side effects that this ingredients causes includes nausea, headaches, mood alterations, liver and kidney dysfunction, ocular issues, and even free radical mutation (cancer).

    Sucralose – This form of sugar can be a potential health risk. Some companies promote this as a harmless derivative of real sugar. Some clinical reports have linked sucralose consumption with gastrointestinal problems, seizures, dizziness, migraines, blurred vision, blood sugar increases and weight gain.

    Soy – In our opinion, soy is not an ideal protein source, as there are a lot of alternatives out there. Recent studies have linked soy proteins to thyroid issues, food allergies, danger for pregnant or nursing women, immune system problems, and much more.

    Corn Syrup Solids – Although this could fall into the yellow category we feel it important to point out a few things.  For starters corn syrup solids are manufactured from corn syrup liquid through a process that removes 97% of the water from the liquid. The Center for Science in the Public Interest puts corn syrup and corn syrup solids on its “Cut Back” list. The CSPI says these corn syrup products are not toxic, but large amounts may be unsafe or promote bad nutrition. Corn syrup is a sweet, thick liquid that’s made by treating cornstarch with acids or enzymes.

    Artificial Flavors – The search for “natural” sources of chemicals often requires that a manufacturer go to great lengths and expenses to obtain a given chemical. For this reason, synthetically produced flavors are frequently used in foods and beverages. Artificial flavors have been known to cause an array of health problems such as chest pain, headaches, fatigue, nervous system depression, allergies, brain damage, seizures, nausea, dizziness and many more.

    Conclusion

    The aforementioned is just the beginning, the label states 18 grams of sugar per serving, which is detrimental to your improved health. Special K may advertise heavily, but the sum of the ingredients in their shake is less than optimal and very controversial in our opinion.
