Formulite Lupin Soup - anyone tried?



Recommended Posts

I will be undergoing a revision from ESG to gastric sleeve mid March, I have been looking at Protein products for the pureed/soft post op stages. I came across lupin Soup made by Formulite. Just wondering if any one has tried it? How did you find it?

I could also Water it down more and filter for use in the liquid stage if needed. My program has a short liquid phase. I'd only be using it for a short while for the pureed/soft stage.....I could probably do my own broth thing and add flavourless protein powder...but I know me I wouldn't bother making the broth so best to have something on hand other than Protein Shakes or protein water.

Thanks

I don't think we have this in the US, but the macros on this look good.

I purchase a small bag of lupin flour to try making alternative breads etc but haven't worked with it yet

Let us know how it taste!

Also it looks like most of the Protein is from collagen (hydrolyzed beef bone) so if you don't end up liking this particular Soup you *could* just potentially add any unflavored collagen Protein Powder you like to and soup/broth to get the same macros!

Yes! I have a bag of this. I liked it, it's quite chunky with bits of lupin in it, but your straining idea would work. The flavour was good. I hated the formulite shakes, but the Soup was a winner. I got the chicken one I think.

Of the three flavours - beef, chicken and vegetable, I bought the beef.

It looks and taste more like it should be vegetable Soup. I didn't mind the soup or the flavour. Definitely something for pre-op (as alternative to a shake) or post op as a convenience food once past liquid/pureed/soft food stages. It is quite 'gritty' with the lupin flakes which like to settle on the bottom.

It's not something I would Water down, as I mentioned above, it would be quite tasteless. If I buy the soup again, I will try the chicken flavour.

I bought some unflavoured collagen Protein Powder at the same time, I will try that with broth in the week.

Thanks

      This virus is starting to get to me.  I am still doing my exercise (running and walking the dog and strength training but I am finding that I am snacking more, I don't like this!!  
      Is this happening to anyone else? What are you doing to combat it?

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.
