Summary: Yoli is a Multi Level Marketing product and because of this may potentially have higher mark-ups. This extra money is usually used to pay distributors instead of going back into the quality of the product.
In Yoli’s case however, we were surprised to find such high quality ingredients at this price point. Yoli’s whey protein, called Purawhey™, is biologically active and minimally processed. With this foundation, Yoli adds extra natural ingredients for increased nutrient density and uses no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors. We love seeing stevia in the mix as it’s a natural herb with no known side effects that really does the job.
The problem for companies is that stevia costs substantially more than artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose, or maltodextrin (think Splenda, Equal, etc). Hormone-free whey, natural sweeteners, etc. are always a great indicator of the quality of the product. You need to ask yourself on each shake you evaluate — Did the company dilute the proteins with soy or other inexpensive proteins just to save a buck? Or did they go the full mile and use more expensive proteins like whey and more pricey sweeteners like stevia?
It is hard to find any problems at all with the quality of this product. It is up there with the best. The price point is a bit higher than some other quality shakes, but it is not all that significant.
