What You Should Know
Bariatrix Nutrition is a family owned business that has been around for three generations according to the official website. Bariatrix Nutrition researches and distributes weight loss food products, diet supplements, and offers weight loss programs in the US, Canada, and Europe. Like many other companies that offer diet products, Bariatrix offers a lot in the area of pre-packaged foods that are very high in protein.
Bariatrix tries to focus on the fact that people just don’t have the time to eat healthy, and the company offers convenient products such as snacks, bars, puddings, and drinks as well as full meals and soups. The official website claims that weight loss professionals highly recommend Bariatrix products, as opposed to the other kinds of pre-packaged diet foods. We don’t know if this is true or not as most companies will say similar things.
List of Ingredients
Only practitioners can log in to get the full ingredients for all Bariatrix products, but some digging turned up the following, which could offer a good sample of what goes into Bariatrix products:
Wildberry Passion drink ingredients: Hydrolyzed gelatin, whey protein isolate (derived from milk), citric acid. Contains less than 2% of: beet extract color, natural flavor, potassium citrate, aspartame (non-nutritive sweetener), malic acid, silicon dioxide, lemon juice solids, turmeric extract color, canthaxanthin color, soy lecithin. Contains less than 1% juice when reconstituted. Phenylketonurics: Contains phenylalanine.
Cinnamon Pecan Dream Bar ingredients: Protein blend (soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate, milk protein concentrate), maltitol syrup, sugar, fructooligosaccharides, water, glycerin, modified palm and palm kernel oil, pecan nuts, modified milk ingredient, tapioca starch, buttermilk, natural and artificial flavors, maltitol, butter, soy lecithin, yogurt powder, cream, color, salt, mono- and diglycerides, pectin, sucralose (non-nutritive sweetener), sodium phosphate, sodium citrate, gum gellan, carrageenan, tocopherol.

The Bariatrix line of products contains all of the products you are familiar with that are offered by companies such as Slim-Fast or Jenny Craig. There are nutrition bars, shakes, microwaveable soups and meals, and drinks. The biggest difference is that you can only get Bariatrix products from a practicing physician or a licensed nutritionist. This could be inconvenient for those looking for a diet product they can use immediately.
The official website is very informative and has a section with recipes, sample diets, meal plans, and many other resources that could be useful for those looking for a comprehensive weight loss program.
- Very large product line, with lots of choices.
- Thorough website with lots of resources.
- No appetite suppressants or fat burners for sale from Bariatrix.
- May not be the right weight loss plan for everyone.
- Prices are unavailable for Bariatrix products.
- Getting a hold of Bariatrix products involves more than just a trip to the supermarket or a simple web order.
Bariatrix products may be appealing to you if you are looking for a weight loss product and are interested in a line of meal replacements. The products are fairly high in protein which should help some people feel more full, as well as deal with basic nutrition. We can’t recommend using these products alone and suggest they be used in addition to a diet supplement that will help you lose weight and suppress your appetite.
