The FitMiss Delight products are a lineup produced specifically with the needs of women by its parent company MusclePharm. Today we look at the FitMiss Delight protein powder which incorporates greens and superfoods for a slightly more wholistic approach.
This product is mainly targeted towards weight loss, though also suits those also seeking to replace lost weight with lean muscle through working out. The "Delight" brand also includes a range of protein bars for treats and on-the-go cravings.

We tried the Vanilla Chai flavour and a scoop (23grams) contains 16 grams of protein from 20 grams of Whey Protein Concentrate. This is a relatively inefficient form and we would generally prefer to see an isolate. It's also a pretty small serving size which suits usage for weight loss. Unusually for such a protein source, it is quite low in fat which is just 1.5 grams and it has just 3 grams of carbs. This is good too when you consider this supplement is intended for weight loss.
The next ingredient listed is SolaThin which is a patented form of protein isolate derived from potatoes. SolaThin delivers a protease inhibitor (Pl-2) that signals both the brain and the GI tract that the stomach is full. This is a nice addition which helps make the product suitable for meal replacement or between meal use to avoid cravings.
The next addition is the "Greens & Superfoods" blend which includes an extensive list of ingredients to ensure you have a wide variety of micronutrients until your next meal. Having said that, it would have been nice to include some more information about the vitamin and mineral content this provides on the package.
Another useful addition are some digestive enzymes including Protease and Lactase which is especially helpful with the digestion of any Lactose content. Inulin has also been added which assists with bowel function as well as decreases the body's ability to make certain kinds of fats. This is another potentially useful addition for those looking for weight loss.
Cellulose Gum and Soy Lecithin has been added as stabilizers and should also make the product more easily mixable. Sucralose (Splenda) and Acesulfame Potassium have been added as sweeteners.
The manufacturers recommended retail price is $27.99 for 2lbs. This works out to be about $1.33 per 30 grams of protein content. Thats pretty cheap, but consider that the last price we checked on Amazon was only $23.91 which brings down the protein cost to just $1.13 per 30 grams. Thats really very cheap! Consider also that this product has greater value than just its protein component!
Mixability with this product is not great at all and it required some vigorous shaking to get it mixed in without clumps. We have found this also with similar products which contain superfood additions as they don't tend to mix well, especially with water.
We were pleasantly surprized by the taste of this product. The flavor was a mix of vanilla which was not too strong, along with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. While it took a bit to get this product to mix, its texture was smooth and worked well even with water which would probably be the preferred way to consume the product if you're counting your calories.
This is a more unique product, in that it provides a lot of benefits towards weight loss goals along with a nice addition of the greens & superfoods. This product is actually great value and will do well to help curb food cravings where weight loss is your goal. If that is your goal, this product is an ideal choice to achieve assistance towards that aim. If you are happy with your current weight and just want to develop and maintain lean muscle, we would probably suggest there are better products that are more suitable to that goal. This product is probably best used in combination with a good healthy diet and some daily exercise to achieve your desired weight loss. We would suggest using this as an alternative to snacking between meals or to replace one meal per day.
