Ambronite and Queal both are suitable for replacing a meal. Ambronite has decided to not add any vitamins and therefore 3 (or 4) meals per day will not get you to 100% off all essential nutrients. Queal uses a custom vitamin and mineral mix, and you could eat 3 meals of Queal to get your nutrients. Both products are vegetarian, Ambronite is even vegan. Both contain soy (Queal more than Ambronite) and Ambronite also contains nuts. Queal also has lactose and gluten.
Although the profile of both drinkable meals looks similar, they are quite different. They are both full of nutrients, but they are made in different ways. Ambronite is made with more fresh (and dried) produce, whilst Queal is made only from dried ingredients.
The biggest ingredient in both products is oats. They are a great source of complex carbohydrates, and also contain a lot of fibre, a bit of protein and some omega fatty acids. The grain oats in Ambronite are organic and with 52.6% of ingredients, the whole product is also an organic product.
The proteins in Queal come from whey protein (from the milk making process) where the proteins from Ambronite come from organic almonds and brown rice protein. This is what makes Queal vegetarian, but not vegan. Almonds are a great source of fats and protein, but of course not for someone with a nut allergy.
The micronutrients in Queal are balanced so that each of them is at least 33% of your daily reference intake (DRV/RDA/DRI/RI) per meal. Where the oats, corn, whey and other ingredients take care of most vitamins and minerals in Queal, some are added via a custom vitamin and mineral mix.
Ambronite doesn’t add any vitamins next to the ones already in the natural ingredients. This means that not every meal (500 calories) has 25% of each vitamin and mineral. Minerals like magnesium and manganese are present in the natural ingredients at high amounts (90% per meal), and you should take care to not eat Ambronite for every meal to prevent negative health consequences (e.g. diarrhoea from too much magnesium).
Both Queal and Ambronite are made from real food. They use different ingredients, both make a complete meal. Both also use some flavouring to make the meals taste as good as possible.
