Summary

MuscleBlaze High Protein Muesli delivered on the high protein claim. With a fairly decent carbohydrate and fat content, this has a pretty clean ingredient list except one. Thumbs up on how fresh and flavorful it was.

Nutrition for well-being is quite simple. Never skip breakfast and always add a portion of protein for satiety.

MuscleBlaze, primarily a protein supplement brand, combined both these fundamentals and launched its muesli. We received the sampler pack in our Mojo Box. In our MuscleBlaze High Protein Muesli review, we talk about the protein content per serve, the quality of ingredients used, and whether or not this is ideal for regular consumption.

Does the brand specify its prime protein sources?

Our Review Factors

While reviewing MuscleBlaze High Protein Muesli, we had the following factors in mind, 

The ingredients used, the source of protein, calories per serve, the flavors, crunch, and freshness.

1. Nutrition Quotient

Main Ingredients 

What are the key sources of protein, sugar, and fats? Are these nutritious? What is the bioavailability of the protein source? 

Macronutrients

Sustained levels of energy and appetite regulation are results of a well-balanced meal/snack. Does this high-protein muesli offer carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in balanced portions?

2. Taste

Dark chocolate and cranberry sound like a heavenly combination, without a doubt. But how do the ingredients taste individually? Fresh or stale? Is the dark chocolate too bitter or do the sweetened cranberries balance it out?

3. Texture

Crunchy and chewy or soggy? How did this muesli with and without milk?

4. Other Parameters

MuscleBlaze High Protein Muesli – Detailed Review

Price & Packaging

We received a single-serving pack as a part of our Mojo Box. A chocolate brown-colored pack with an attractive graphic of the muesli holds 50 grams with claims like whole grains, source of fiber, antioxidant-rich ingredients, and power of nuts and seeds.

A 100-gram pouch is priced at Rs 99 and has a shelf life of nine months.

Main Ingredients

Rolled oats (18%), fruits, nuts & seeds (16%), {cranberry (5%), (cranberry, sugar, sunflower oil), almonds, raisins, flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, texturized soy protein (15.5%), rolled barley (12.5%), dark chocolate (11.5%), brown rice flakes (11%)(sugar, hydrogenated palm kernel oil, cocoa solids, emulsifier (INS 322 (iii), salt, date, syrup, quinoa puffs, jaggery. This also contains artificial chocolate flavoring. 

Nutrition Quotient

A 50-gram serve offers approximately 217 Kcal with 27 grams of carbohydrates, 13.5 grams of protein, and 6.2 grams of fat.

When compared to other brands of muesli, MuscleBlaze High Protein Muesli offers more or less the same calories per serve, with marginally lower carbohydrates, similar fat, and MORE protein. (almost twice as much)

The brand mentions quantities of almost all ingredients, thumbs up for this. While sunflower oil is a relatively better source of fat, a nutrient-dense alternative to palm kernel oil could have been used. 

muscleblaze high protein muesli without milk
Fresh and crunchy, this muesli had a nice balance of flavors.

Taste & Texture

The boldest crunch was coming from the quinoa puff and chia seeds. The nuts and seeds had retained their crunchy bite as well and had not turned soggy. Despite the flavor of flax seeds feeling unroasted, they had quite a bite. The crunch of oats was not as intense, but they had a bite, nonetheless.

Taste-wise, this did justice to the ‘dark chocolate’ claim. It was only mildly sweet and featured the perfect bitterness of the ingredient, which was not overpowering. While the nuts and seeds brought their unique flavors, the whole grains (oats, barley, and quinoa puffs) had taken on the chocolate flavor.

Without milk

At this stage, the muesli felt quite dry but it was still appetizing. The bitter (dark chocolate) + tangy and sweet (cranberries) combination was liked by our Team.

With milk

All-in-all, this bowl of muesli was relished. The subtle sweetness and overall flavor profile tasted fairly good with cold milk.
