@LAURA - I would encourage you to check directly with Orgain to find your answer. I did not see that the products were listed as lactose-free. You can find their contact info online at http://www.drinkorgain.com/.

Was so so so happy when i found this a couple years back. I've always been into healthy eating, but just recently i have been able to buy more groceries for myself, so i have been buying more Orgain! And for the last year I've been working out a lot. Now, i love it even more (and i didn't think that was possible). I use it for breakfast, post workout, and a snack when I can't find anything that will suffice. I recommend it to everyone I know! It's completely perfect other than one rather important aspect...I really wish it was more affordable, because then I know alot more people (including myself) would buy it much more frequently.

After losing my husband and mother-in-law to cancer in the same year, I was not eating properly - either not eating at all or eating comfort food. I was feeling the effects of that and a colleague told me about Orgain. I now drink it for breakfast every day, eat a decent lunch and sometimes drink another Orgain for dinner. I realize now that I was not getting the level of protein that my body needed and I can feel confident now that I am. I feel so much better and buy Orgain 6 to 10 cases at a time whereever I find it on sale.

I like Orgain especially the chocolate flavor because it organically combines Whey and brown rice ( two high quality protein sources), real chocolate, plus fruits and veggies. Add a spoon full of flax seed oil and it would be perfect. They should make a version with flax oil for omega 3 fatty acids. I would drink it all day if i could afford to, tastes great.

Do you carry Orgain Kids yet in Marlton NJ store

@MICHELLE - I called and spoke to the Grocery team at the Marlton store. They currently carry the 4pks of the Orgain drinks but they do not have the kids version yet. Definitely let them know you are interested next time you are in the store and they can check to see if they are available for ordering yet!

I am never hungry for breakfast in the morning... I used to just drink coffee and not eat for hours. Now that I am in my forties, just coffee was making my stomach feel a bit queasy. Since discovering Orgain, I still drink my coffee, but when I get to work, I drink an Orgain. It soothes my stomach without making me too full. It's the best--so tasty it's hard to believe it's really good for me.

Your product was the absolute best after my jaw surgery in Dec. 2012. I could not eat or talk--just on liquids for 2 months! Drinking Orgain allowed me to continue my school studies and start a spring internship. Now 4 months out, although I can eat and talk again, I could not give up Orgain so I have have included an 11oz Orgain into my daily diet at tea time when I need the energy boost the most. When Dr. Abraham solved his problem, he solved others as well. Thank you.

What is the difference between Orgain organic nutritional shake and Orgain meal replacement shake??????I am confused about this.

@RICHARD - I looked on their website and did not see a difference in shake options. I was only able to find the organic nutritional shake for adults and a kids version. For specific answers you can reach out to Orgain at http://www.drinkorgain.com/ and I'm sure they will be happy to clarify this for you!

I am in tears that I have finally found what I'm looking for! My under 2-year-old daughter has Cystic Fibrosis, and the greatest indicator of lung function over her lifetime is her weight to height ratio in her first five years. Hers is suffering right now, but she is in otherwise good health. The doctors have recommended Ensure-like products, but I have told them I will not give them to her because of their horrible ingredients. I am beyond thrilled to find this product! Patients with CF need 2/3 more calories than the rest of us, so that means over 1700 cal/day for my daughter and between 5000-6000 for an adult with CF because of the body's inability to process nutrients properly. I am going to order some Orgain right now! Thank you, Andrew Abraham and Whole Foods Market!!!

We have a little 6 pound chihuahua who survived distemper when he was puppy. Unfortunately though the disptempter has caused him to have many chronic medical problems--including diabetes and chronic pancreatitis. Whenever he has a flare-up, it has been difficult to find him an easily digestable, high protein, low fat nutritional supplement that is not loaded with sugar, corn syrup, aspartame, or other ingrediants that may be potentially harmful for him. This product has been wonderful for him as it provides him with a palatable meal that does not throw his blood glucose out of control, and helps him to maintain his weight, his hydration and energy when he is not able to eat his regular diet. I know that this product is not intended for our canine friends, but let me tell you-- Webster is very grateful, as am I :)

I think this product is excellent. However, it is too expensive which isn't helpful to the masses and certainly will not serve the majority's health.. A truly great product not only needs to be effective but also needs to be affordable.

I discovered Orgain quite by accident while rushing to a massage appointment one day. I was hungry but did not want to load up on a meal right before a massage. I stopped at the co-op and saw it in the cooler and grabbed it. It was SO GOOD I was hooked. Frequently have one for breakfast, but they saved my life when I had my most recent hip replacement. Had a rough time with the painkillers and Orgain was the only "food" I could face for a few days. When I had my pre-op the hospital of course was pushing Ensure, but I said "no thanks, I have something better on tap" and took a few to the hospital with me. When compared, the SMALLER serving of Ensure has MORE CALORIES and LESS PROTEIN than the larger serving of Orgain. Thank you Dr. Abraham!

I went to your Cambie whole foods today & they said whole foods USED TO carry Orgain. I couldn't find any on the shelves. Asked 2 sales personnel but both said they don't carry it anymore. Is this true? If so, why? Any medical recall or something I should know? I am in a hurry to buy some to bring abroad. A dear friend has acute leukemia & needed liquid nutrition after chemotherapy. I fly out in 5 days. HELP!!

@FLORENCE - Our buys is done at the store and regional level so it's possible that the store or region decided not to carry this any longer. You can buy this on their website at http://shop.orgain.com/.

My sister is 65 she is in a nursing home and recently was told that she has SILENT ASPIRATION and doctor inserted a tube in her stomach due to she cannot eat by mouth because particles of food would go into her lungs. The problem is they are feeding her horrible GLUCERNA SHAKES AND i read that such product IS NOT A MEAL REPLACEMENT NOR IS FOR TUBE FEEDING. I LOVE YOUR PRODUCT & WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF IT IS SUITABLE FOR TUBE FEEDING FOR MY SISTER. If you would reply as soon as possible i would appreciate it. I'm concert that my sister may suffer a heart attack with the Glucerna can shake they're giving her. Also if you would give me a price to give to the CONVALESCENT HOME WHERE MY SISTER IS SO THEY CAN ORDER IT IF IT IS SUITABLE FOR TUBE FEEDING. Thanks very much and God Bless you for creating such an extraordinary product.

@JOSEPHINE - My thoughts go out to your sister during this time. I would suggest that you reach out to Orgain directly to answer your questions. You can find their contact info at http://www.drinkorgain.com/. You can also purchase through their website.

Will you/can you make a dairy-free (without whey) option, please???

@DEBBIE - Since we don't make this product I would suggest getting in touch with Orgain to find out!

But I am left wondering if this product is good for people with cancer! Why? Because it has sugar, and we all know that Cancer cells thrive on sugar.
