What You Should Know
Kroger Slim Rite is a meal replacement shake similar to Slim Fast. The meal replacement shake is manufactured by Kroger to be sold only in Kroger stores. No other third party retailer could be found with an inventory of Kroger Slim Rite. In addition, online sales are not supported by Kroger so dieters would have to visit a local Kroger store to purchase Kroger Slim Rite.

Kroger Slim Rite is available in a variety of flavors. All flavors will have the same general ingredients, aside from cocoa, which is only found in chocolate Kroger Slim Rite. Each shake contains about 180 calories, which is comparable to name brand diet meal replacement shakes. Unfortunately, there are no fat burners, stimulants, metabolism boosters or appetite suppressant ingredients to keep the dieter from getting hungry a short time after the shake is finished.
Each shake contains Sucralose or Splenda but also contains fructose and sugar. With 17 grams of sugar in all, about 1/3 of the total calories are from simple sugars which can cause a spike in blood glucose levels and a crash later that may stimulate hunger and more eating. Kroger Slim Rite is not a diabetic friendly meal replacement shake and is not the best meal replacement for someone trying to lose weight. Even the high protein levels of 10 grams per shake may not be enough to counteract the large amount of sugar in each shake.
