Please offer a non sweetened, non flavored and vegan option
I bought this product after having a freak accident and sustaining 5 fractures in my ankle and leg. I knew I needed the nutritional support to heal after such trauma. I didn’t pay particular attention to the label as I normally do (hello pain meds) and I was disappointed that it was flavored (gross-I do not want a fake citrus flavor in all my smoothies) and was sweetened (why do we Americans think we need to add sweeteners to everything? Even supplements to heal! No!) and I’m vegetarian so not keen on the whey protein (a vegan pea/flax protein complex would be AMAZING!). So because of the price point and the other nutrients included, I’ll finish my container (even if it’s a struggle to choke it down) but would LOVE if Mend made a slightly different version of this. I also found the powder actually difficult to blend and very chalky (had to use my vitamix blender). I typically blended in almond milk + frozen banana and other fruit and could STILL taste the sweeteners added (😝). Real health conscious people do not need stevia or any other sweeteners!
