Frequently Asked Questions
We have daily bags and practical ecological disposable bottles in the program.
With the daily sachets, you fill 3-5 scoops of the powder into our shaker, which we send free of charge for new customers, depending on the variant and hunger feeling. One scoop filled with BERTRAND will satisfy your hunger for about one hour. Put as many scoops in the shaker as you intend to stay full.
Then fill the shaker with water or (plant) milk. We recommend using 150ml of liquid per scoop.
The required amount of powder for 3-4h lasting satiety is also marked on the shaker.
Then throw the supplied spiral ball into the shaker and mix everything well. After that you can enjoy BERTRAND.
Our practical disposable bottles are filled with water and beaten upside down several times on the ball of your hand until the powder is completely dissolved. Then let it steep briefly so that the contained grain can swell a little. Enjoy it!
All new customers will receive our shaker automatically and free of charge with their first order of at least one of our daily bags. Please do not add additional shakers to your cart unless you wish to purchase additional shakers.
We have our shakers at a great price in the store. All shakers also include the handy spiral ball that whizzes through the mix when shaken for lump-free enjoyment.
We made changes in four points.
- We have a new packaging design with a new format of the bags.
- We have given up the pre-flavored bags in favor of optional flavor packs.
- We made small changes to the recipe.
- With “active vegan” we have launched a new and long-awaited variant.
The first thing you notice is that we have adjusted the design of the bags to the design of the bottles. This was planned for a long time and of course ensures a uniform appearance.
The biggest plus that speaks in favor of the new packaging, however, is that dosing with the measuring spoon is now easier. The new bags open much wider, making it much easier to take powder out of the bag.
Like the previous bag, the new bag is resealable, recyclable and very durable.
Please tell us your wishes for new flavors via chat.
As Bertrand already said, the reason that we are now using Flavor Packs is that they make us much more flexible.
We can now launch new flavors very quickly, with which you can always keep your drinkable meals varied. This was possible only with difficulty with the pre-flavored variants, as it requires a very high logistical effort for us to produce and store four variants (classic, vegan, active and vegan active). Now: no problem.
The more important reason, however, is that we can use the newly gained free space in the production and in the warehouse to offer completely new variants. We have already started with vegan active and will see from now on what we can offer that is new and exciting. We are thinking, for example, of variants with a higher proportion of vegetables with a spiced flavor as well as limited editions such as cocoa, banana or variants with a lot of real fruit from freeze-dried fruits.

Overall, we have improved the nutritional values primarily by reformulating the existing ingredients. We paid special attention to the fibers and proteins, which we have partly increased significantly. In return, the fats were reduced.
We were also able to remove certain ingredients from the classic version for allergy sufferers. So if you are looking for a version without walnuts, for example, you will now find it with our classic natural version.
