So, with the introductions out of the way, let’s start taking a closer look at Form’s Superblend Protein from all angles.
Form Superblend Protein – The Basics
Protein powders are one of the most common types of food supplements around, and they are particularly popular amongst gym goers who are looking to top up their protein intake (as you probably already know, protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass).
Form are UK-based supplements company focused on plant-based products to support overall health and wellbeing.
Their Superblend Protein product is like an ‘upgraded’ protein powder, a shake which contains 20g of plant-based protein plus a collection of other ingredients such as essential vitamins and minerals, to support your intake from dietary sources.
It’s currently sold in four flavours – Chocolate Peanut, Chocolate Salted Caramel, Toffee and Vanilla – and each serving contains 20g of protein plus a number of other ingredients.
Form say that their Superblend Protein product ‘redefines’ the protein shake, offering a convenient way to top up your daily nutrient intake as part of a great-tasting and convenient drink.
Let’s cover some of the basics first. Each serving of Superblend Protein contains 20g of plant-based protein (organic pea protein, plus brown rice and pumpkin seed proteins). Depending on the flavour, each serving contains around 150 to 160 total calories, and less than two grams of sugar. Superblend Protein uses the sweeteners Stevia and Thaumatin to enhance taste.
As well as the protein, this supplement also contains a host of added extras. These include a blend of greens and fruit powders such as broccoli powder, beetroot powder and blueberry powder. Also included in this supplement is a blend of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamins B6 and B12, Vitamin D3 and Zinc.
These inclusions really do set this supplement apart from most regular protein shakes, which usually include the protein sources, sweeteners and not much else. Each serving of Superblend Protein delivers a range of vitamins and minerals to help support and top up your intake from food sources.
Form Superblend Protein is currently only available in a 520g pouch, or 40g sachets. That being said, you can buy six 520g pouches together for a 20 per cent discount off your order from the Form Nutrition website. One 520g pouch was priced at £26 on the Form website at the time of writing, which definitely does make it quite a premium-priced supplement.

Taste And Flavours
If you’ve read our review of the Form Performance Protein, you’ll know that we rate it as one of the best-tasting vegan protein shakes on the market at the moment.
You might be thinking that with all of the added ingredients in Form’s Superblend Protein the taste and ease of mixing of the powder could be affected, but we were pleasantly surprised to find out that this wasn’t the case.
We tried out the Chocolate Salted Caramel flavour. We one serving (two heaped tablespoons) into a glass of water after a workout and found that the mixture dissolved really easily. Most importantly, it tasted great, even just with water.
This protein shake is definitely a little bit on the sweeter side, so that may not be to everyone’s taste, but we loved it and were very impressed that it tasted so good even with just water alone.
As mentioned above, Superblend Protein is currently available in a range of flavours – Chocolate Peanut, Chocolate Salted Caramel (the one we tried), Toffee and Vanilla. Each of the flavours do have slightly different nutritionals when it comes to things like fibre, sugar and fat (see the Form website for more information) – but all of the flavours supply a total of 20g of protein per serving.
