Another health food product review this week and up this time we have the Cacao & Orange Protein + Vitamin Balls by The Protein Ball Co.
The Protein Ball Co produce delicious all-natural high protein snacks packed with a range of organic proteins such as their Protein Ball range.
The Protein Ball Co describe their Cacao & Orange Protein + Vitamin Balls as:
A delicious triple-chocolate sensation! We’ve blended zesty orange oil into each rich, dark chocolatey ball to create the perfect indulgence. And they’re packed with crunchy cacao nibs, cocoa butter, creamy whey protein and juicy dates, all richly dusted with cacao powder.
In fact, they look and taste just like a truffle but are much healthier with 10g of high protein, high in fibre, no added sugar and we’ve added Vitamin B12, Vitamin C and Vitamin D3.

Evidence-Based Health Review
It had been a while since I had purchased any of The Protein Ball Co products, so whilst I was browsing the healthy food product section in my local Morrisons supermarket, I thought I would purchase a pack of the Cacao & Orange to review on the blog.
I was looking for a high quality protein rich snack, that was under £1.00 in price, based on natural ingredients but also something indulgent as a treat at the same time.
The Cacao & Orange Protein Balls from The Protein Ball Co ticked all these boxes.
The Cacao & Orange Protein Balls were very tasty as expected and you get six good decent sized balls per pack.
Lightly dusted with cacao powder on the outside, it really gives them an indulgent truffle like texture, but made from all natural healthy ingredients.
Great flavour and taste all round for a healthy snack.
The Cacao & Orange Protein + Vitamin Balls as you would expect from the name are a high protein snack providing 10 grams of quality protein per pack mostly from Whey Protein Isolate.
I really like that they have gone with Whey Protein Isolate here when so many other companies often go with Soya Isolate instead.
The Cacao & Orange Protein Balls are also high in fiber, which is another benefit.
The ingredients are all really healthy and natural, so I will definitely be picking these up again as a healthy snack and at £1.00 per bag, they are well priced compared to other protein snacks on the market.
Another bonus to the Cacao & Orange Protein balls is that they are also infused with Vitamins such as Vitamin B12(as cyanocobalamin), Vitamin D3 and Acerola Cherry Extract.
I really like that they have added Vitamin D3 to the protein balls, its a tasty easy way to get a nice boost of Vitamin D in the active D3 form.
The addition of Acerola Cherry Extract is another plus, I am a huge fan of Acerola Cherry as a natural source of Vitamin C and other phyto-chemicals.
Overall really enjoyed the Cacao & Orange Protein + Vitamin Balls from The Protein Ball Co and will be reviewing more of their product range on our website in the future.
Great tasty, all natural healthy ingredients, 10 grams of quality protein from whey protein isolate and a bunch of extra bonus vitamins such as B12, D3 and acerola cherry extract.
