As a long-term buyer of Form’s vegan supplements and vegan protein powders, I have decided to share my thoughts on their products here in my Form Nutrition review. Read on to find out more about the company and what my own thoughts are on its products.
There is no denying that a plant-based diet is healthy, but if you are quite an active person or someone who is too busy to cook properly, or you are simply looking to find ways to ‘hack’ your brain, then you may want to find a supplement company to help.
The problem is, many supplement companies rely quite heavily on animal-based ingredients. Be it whey for protein powders, or fish oil for omega-3 tablets.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t supplement your diet effectively as a vegan. Companies like Form are making it super easy to achieve your nutrition goals.
Who are Form Nutrition?
Form Nutrition is a fully plant-based nutrition company selling vegan protein powders, nootropics, and meal replacement powder. They are a certified B Corp with some pretty awesome eco credentials.
Alongside their product offering, they also publish regular blogs on their website and print select pieces onto a magazine which they send within their orders. As part of this, they work with professionals in the area to bring you informative and trustworthy content.
It is time to supercharge your nutrition with Form Nutrition and their vegan protein powders and nootropics. Read on to find out what I really love about the brand!
They use eco-friendly packaging
This is a biggy for me. I detest protein powders and supplements that come packaged in loads of plastic. It doesn’t matter whether it is recyclable or not, I really want to see less of it being used! So when I first discovered Form some years back I was really happy to see that their protein powders come packaged in compostable bags.
They also don’t sneak in any plastic spoons into their bags of protein powder. Instead, they give you tablespoon measurements. When so many protein powder companies deliver a new plastic spoon inside every pack of their powder, this was a bit of a revelation. It is super simple, leaving out the spoon, but it was something that no other brands were doing at the time. Hopefully now others are catching on.
In addition to this, their supplements come packaged inside glass jars. And you can also buy their multivitamin inside a larger jar so you don’t have to order as regularly. I think they are really pretty jars and try to reuse them as much as possible, otherwise, you can recycle them quite easily.
They use high-quality ingredients that work
I am very careful when it comes to buying supplements and protein powders. So when I first checked out Form I made sure to look at their ingredients lists. I was really impressed by the number of organic ingredients they source as well as the high-quality sources of vitamins they use.
They avoid using acids and other nasty ingredients to extra their proteins, like their pea protein which goes inside all their vegan protein powders. They go directly to the source for their supplement ingredients, like the DHA used in the multivitamin which comes from algae.
In addition to this, they make sure to include ingredients that help you to absorb these amazing vitamins and nutrients. For example, their vegan multivitamin includes BioPerine®, a black pepper extract which has been proven to increase bioavailability. This helps you to absorb the vitamins they have included in their multivitamin, including vitamin B12, vitamin D, iodine and iron. And their protein powder blends include digestive enzymes to help your body break down and absorb the protein.
I personally take their daily multivitamin and feel energised and healthy. My bloods have come back fine after a recent trip to the doctor. And whenever I use their protein powders, I feel my muscle recovery post-gym is excellent.
Their protein powders taste great!
To top all of it off, Form’s vegan protein powders actually taste really nice. I have tried many and they are often grainy and overly sweetened (using sweeteners). Whilst Form also use sweeteners, they use the better kinds and they use them well. So you end up with well-flavoured powders that you can add to your vegan baking recipes, like these vegan pancakes, and into your daily shakes.
I personally like to blend mine into a shake with a banana, oat milk, cacao powder, and a scoop of peanut butter. This works really well with the toffee flavour, as well as their vanilla, chocolate hazelnut, and chocolate peanut flavours.
I also like that they have an unflavoured option, their pureblend powder, which you can mix into savoury dishes like soups and stews.
My thoughts on Form Nutrition
I am a big fan of all of Form Nutrition’s products. I fully believe that they can do no wrong. I have been buying their vegan protein powders for years and find them to really help with my muscle recovery after gym days. The supplements keep me energised and focused. And to top it all off, they are committed to being an eco-friendly company that is also 100% vegan. It doesn’t get better than that!
Areas of improvement
Form focuses a lot on creating nootropics to suit specific health areas, like sleep and energy. Whilst this is perfect for anyone looking to cover these specific areas, this does mean they don’t have any standalone vegan vitamins, like some of the other vegan supplement brands. So you will need to go elsewhere if you want to supplement with individual vitamins.
That being said, I do take their vegan multivitamin and love that I don’t have to do any real thinking about what I need to take each month as it is all catered for in this one pill.
If you are looking to supplement your diet with really high-quality vegan protein powders, or you are looking for some vegan vitamins to top up your vitamin intake, or you want to hack your brain with some awesome nootropics, then Form is the company for you! They really understand plant-based nutrition and have enabled me to become the healthiest version of myself.

Here are some frequently asked questions regarding Form Nutrition.
Is Form protein powder a complete protein?
All of Form’s vegan protein powders are formulated with organic pea, brown rice, and pumpkin seed proteins. Together these help to form a complete range of amino acids.
Can you take all of Form’s nootropics together?
You can definitely mix and match with Form’s nootropics as they have all been designed to work together. For instance, you may want to take their daily multivitamin alongside their ZZZZs to help you sleep. This is completely fine!
Just keep in mind that if you use their superblend powder, this does contain many of the vitamins that are included in their multivitamin. So you may want to swap to their performance protein instead, or stop taking the multivitamins at the same time.
