Special K Protein Water is a dietary supplement that is manufactured by Kelloggs. While this diet beverage is primarily marketed toward women that wish to lose weight, it is also suitable for men. Special K Protein Water is stated to “help you stay on track,” presumably referring to the user’s chosen diet program. It is sold in four different flavors, which are lemon twist, mixed berry, strawberry kiwi and tropical blend. Although Special K Protein Water is not sold via the official Kelloggs website, it can be purchased in most common grocery stores.

The primary ingredients offered in Special K Protein Water are Protein (builds lean muscle mass), Calcium (helps strengthen bones), Niacin, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6 and dietary fiber (assists with bowel movements).

    I have looked in every store in elko no ne carries the water. I have checked walmart in elko nv, winnamucca, reno no one carries the water and most employees never heard of it. The say look in pharmacy then koolaid isle. I have never had more problems tying to find a product. I will be buying it online I give up on the stores.



    I was buying it via Amazon for the last few years but the cost has gone up astronomically that I can’t afford it any longer. I can not find it in stores either. I buy the powder in little packs and add it to water. It flavors my water to help with intake.



    Hi Tami, I started using the Special K Protein Water mixes about 7 years ago and love them. Unfortunately it seems they have been discontinued by Kelloggs as I have been looking for the little packs for several years now. Where are you buying yours?

    I use this product after having gastric bypass. You have to get 60 grams of protein a day and it is hard to do with my stomach being so much smaller. This is a great way to get fiber and your protein without adding calories…..You also are supposed to drink about 60 oz of water per day, so this way I get my water and my protein. Great tasting product, just hard to find in my area, so i guess I will order online.

    Does anyone know if the protein water would qualify as part of the liquid diet required for the 24 hour preparation for a colonoscopy? I thought so, until I read the ingredients that include fiber. The liquids required can’t have and solids, for example orange juice. But I need protein to keep my blood sugar from dropping dramatically. Thanks for any help.

    I am preparing for a colonoscopy which requires a liquid diet for 24 hours. I also need something that has protein, or my blood sugar drops dramatically. I thought the protein water would work until I read that it has fiber. Can anyone tell me if it is acceptable? The doctor’s office just says the liquids cannot contain solids, for example like fruit juices. Thanks for any help.

    I use the Special K drink mix I found it in the Walmart Pharmacy area. I love it! I sip on it all day and it helps me not only met my daily water needs but also stops my snacking between meals. It is a awesome product!

    I started drinking 4 bottles of water a day mixed with special k drink mix. It really helps stops the craving to eat between meals. In addition to using Special K, I have limited my carbs intake and have lost 15lbs the first 3 weeks without doing any exercises.

    Is Special K Protein Water a good vitamin and protein supplement I don’t need it for weight loss.

    I have the Pink Lemonade powder. It very convenient. It doesn’t suggest to burn calories or be a weight loss aid except for that with the protein and fiber, it makes it a lot easier to not snack between meals and curbs my appetite a bit before meals.
