What is liquid nutrition?

Liquid food is any food that is consumed in liquid form. This includes soups, smoothies, drinks and shakes.

As long as it contains important ingredients for the body, it can be described as "food". How healthy or unhealthy it is for your body will be explained shortly.

However, when we talk about liquid food in this article, we are referring to complete drinkable meals that can replace a solid meal. These are offered either as a ready-to-drink shake or in powder form for self-mixing. However, if you have to replace all meals due to illness, you should use medical drinkable meals, but only after consulting your doctor. This includes Saturo explicitly not.

Liquid food usually consists of all the important nutrients (proteins, healthy fats and carbohydrates) and vitamins that the human body needs. The ingredients of the food must always be indicated on the packaging.

Of course, every manufacturer of liquid meals has its own secret recipe, so the exact distribution of ingredients remains a mystery. With Saturo for example, we use soy as a source of protein and isomaltulose instead of conventional sugar.

By the way: not every liquid meal is vegan, gluten-free or lactose-free.

It all depends on the manufacturer's recipe - although most already have several products in their range so that there is the right one for every requirement. If a purely plant-based diet is important to you, you should take a close look at the ingredients table.

Liquid food and the daily diet

How well does liquid nutrition actually fit into everyday life?

Perhaps this sounds familiar to you: In the morning, you'd rather stay in bed a few minutes longer than have a hearty breakfast. During your lunch break at work, you don't have enough time to eat something "sensible". In the evening, you want to go to the gym, but your hunger prevents you from doing so.

In situations like this, a liquid diet comes in handy. It takes no time and still fills you up.

But a few questions remain.

Can you only eat a liquid diet?

However, nutritionists point out that liquid food is best consumed as part of a balanced diet[1]. We do not recommend eating liquid food alone.

The advantage of eating liquid food is that you get all the essential nutrients and feel full. If you eat a liquid diet, you won't be tempted to eat too much unhealthy food. At the same time, a balanced diet with vegetables, nuts and olive oil and little animal fat is recommended.

Advantages and disadvantages of liquid food

We have created the following table so that you have the most relevant advantages and disadvantages of liquid nutrition at a glance:

Vorteil der Flüssignahrung Nachteil der Flüssignahrung
Hohe Zeitersparnis Kann schlecht für die Zähne sein
Niedrige Kosten pro Mahlzeit Nicht immer natürlich
Vitamine und Mineralstoffe enthalten Bestimmte Pflanzenstoffe fehlen
Weniger Müdigkeit nach dem Essen Geschmack ist gewöhnungsbedürftig

In addition to the advantages already mentioned above, the low cost of liquid food stands out.

Because if you mix your own shake with powder, you can get by with costs of sometimes less than 2 euros per meal - with powder from Saturo 1.49 per meal.

And you'll still be full! Not even the unhealthy fast food chains can keep up. So much for the advantages.

One point of criticism that is repeatedly mentioned in connection with liquid food is the possible damage to teeth if the liquid food contains too much sugar[3].

In addition, it must be said that - although it is often advertised as containing all the vitamins - a few plant substances are still missing. To be more precise, these are so-called "secondary plant substances" such as flavonoids and phenolic acids. [4]

Although these phytochemicals are not essential for survival, they are certainly beneficial for our digestion and immune system. The German Nutrition Society recommends 5 portions of fruit and/or vegetables per day[5].

At this stage, liquid food cannot yet fully replace these, but it certainly offers a healthier alternative to junk food. If the liquid diet contains too little fiber (less than 30 g per day), this increases the risk of constipation[6].

The last disadvantage of liquid food, which should not be neglected, is that the social factor of "eating together" is lost. Logically, this only applies if you only eat a liquid diet, which we do not recommend, or if you eat your main meals as drinkable food.

Where you can buy liquid food

Not every supermarket offers this modern form of nutrition for sale. We at Saturo are lucky enough to cooperate with large retailers so that our liquid nutrition can already be bought in stationary stores.

You can find out exactly where to find us with our store finder.

Otherwise there are only 2 ways to order your own ration of drinking food:

Saturo: our own liquid food

Admittedly, we are not entirely unbiased here, as this is our own product.

In the test Saturo offers the drinkable meal as a powder as well as in 330 and 500 ml bottles. With the large bottles, you can choose between three flavors (original, chocolate and coffee), with the small portions there are four flavors.

You can order the 500 ml bottles in packs of six, at a price of 3.49 euros per bottle. The ready-made shakes from Saturo are 100 percent vegan and use soy protein.

Liquid food as a real alternative

Drinking food, whether from Saturo or another provider, has established itself as a real alternative. Not because this form of nutrition can completely replace solid meals. But because the products offer a change from the typical "in-between meals", which usually consist of junk food.

After all, who wants to stand at the stove every evening after work and cook something or prepare for the next working day?

This is exactly where liquid food products come into play and solve this problem for you - at least from time to time. Fortunately, the various companies offer trial packs so that unsure customers can test their way through the range.
