Kaeng Raeng Cleanse

I know, I know….  Another cleanse review?!!  As The Detox Diva we try a lot of packaged cleanses.  The fact is, there are some advantages to pre-packaged cleanses.  Some people really need the structure, knowing what to eat (or drink) and when.  Sometimes, due to time constraints, pre-packaged cleanses come in handy.  I have to be honest, normally I prefer whole foods on a cleanse (such as the 21-day reset, recharge, and renew program coming soon) but there are truly a few short-term cleanses I like for “jump starting” the detox process.

Kaeng Raeng-which means “be healthy, be strong” in Thai is an all-natural, vegan meal replacement “shake” that truly stands out from the “detox” crowd.  There are different levels Beginner, Veteran, and Master Cleanses with a choice of 3 or 6 days worth of meal replacements.   Each shake makes a delicious fruit smoothie and is packed with a full serving of fruit and fiber, 15g of non-gmo soy protein, 2 billion live probiotic cultures, and daily vitamins including B-12 and Vitamin C.

About now half of you are thinking “soy protein???”  and gasping at the thought of drinking that much soy based anything.  I have tried this cleanse myself and it is one of my favorite cleanses of all time.  If you are one of those people who believe the hype of the evils of soy you might want to check out our post Soy:: The Good, the Bad and The Truth.  Unless you have a hard and fast allergy, out of control estrogen dominance, or have breast, ovarian or prostate cancer, properly prepared and/or fermented soy within reason is perfectly fine to add to your diet.

I questioned Kaeng Raeng on their reasoning behind using soy in their cleanses and this is the very reasonable response I got back, totally in keeping with my views on soy.

Why soy?
We use soy protein from pure natural non-genetically modified soybeans, not a soy isolate. Although soy as a food additive has been at the center of controversy, most leading medical research indicates that natural soy (from the earth) is a safe, effective form of protein that has been used in Asian countries for 5000 years. Soy contains essential Omega 3 fatty acids, amino acids, and isoflavones that some physicians laud as cancer preventives, including colon cancer and breast cancer. Many dieticians debate the hormonal impact of soy on men and women, most of which has recently been debunked by the medical community for both men and women. Soybeans are also effective at lowering cholesterol and acting as an antioxidant.

When we were finishing the formula for Kaeng Raeng, we wanted to include the daily value of protein in a natural form that most people would like. Committed to veganism and a safe product, we wanted an animal free and a nut-free source of protein. Nuts (like peanuts, almonds, and cashews) are the most common and dangerous form of food allergy.

We tested soy, brown rice, and hemp proteins on customers all over the country. Soy was the winner. Brown rice and spirulina had an overwhelming taste. Hemp was not suitable for most mainstream consumers who confused it with marijuana. We’re also committed to providing an affordable product to our customers. Using nut, rice, pea, or hemp protein requires significantquantities to provide any substantial amount of protein, which would triple the cost of our product.

We are proud of our healthy, all natural formula and understand dietary restrictions. We are hoping to introduce a soy-free version in the future.

Doesn’t soy have estrogen?
NO! This is a common misconception about soybeans. Soy contains phytoestrogen. The phytoestrogens in soy are not the same as the estrogen you would find in humans and dairy products. In fact, phytoestrogens actually help us to stay hormonally balanced. There is also little evidence in the medical community that soy contributes to changes in thyroid levels.

Bear in mind you are not eating any animal protein during this cleanse and each packet contains one serving of fruits, fiber, and 15 grams of protein per serving which is imperative for the liver to be able to detox properly is just the right amount of protein for a cleanse.

These are the flavors you get with your cleanse:

What did I love about this cleanse?

You are allowed all the raw vegetables and fruit you like in between the shakes.  I did this cleanse in the late summer (right before I got pregnant) and the raw veggies were more than enough to keep me full.  I added in some blueberries, a few strawberries, an avocado, and sometimes a little coconut milk into the shakes to make smoothies.  At the end of the 6 day Master Cleanse, my skin glowed, I lost 7 lbs. and my next period was the absolute best I experienced in a long time (and a month later I was pregnant!).  I felt lighter and I had only one day when I had any sort of detox symptoms and, even then, it was only a slight headache.  I slept better than I had in a long time. I loved the fact that I could use the packets with plain water if I was out and about and needed to eat or I could make really delicious smoothies with them.   (Bear in mind I do very well with some soy in my diet and this offers just enough.) I had loads of energy throughout the entire cleanse and cannot wait to be able to do this cleanse again after my babies are born!  I actually keep a stock of these in my kitchen for smoothie bases even now and my favorite flavor is the “Reunn”.  They keep me energetic all morning long.

What I didn’t love about this cleanse?

The “Daybreak” flavor was not my favorite one.  I had to add a banana to it to get it to be flavorful but, oddly, it was really good after that.  I am not a huge fan of this much fruit for anyone.  It’s just too much fructose for anyone, especially since they tell you that you can have as much fruit as you want on this cleanse.  I would recommend sticking to the fruit in the package and even adding in some spinach, as I did a few days, and not eating any other during the cleanse.  Stick to raw veggies instead.  As a result of so much fructose I am not comfortable recommending this cleanse to anyone with diabetes or anyone with an inflammation related illness.  I also wish they had added in some green veggies into the mix, something I still hope they do at some point so it isn’t so fruit heavy.

I would consider this cleanse safe for Spring, Summer, and Fall cleanses but if you live in very cold climates, maybe not for the dead of winter as fruits are very cooling.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend this cleanse to just about anyone who wants a quick start to a deeper detox, wants to jump start weight loss, or just wants something they can do for a few days to feel lighter in their skin.

Again, they offer 3 and 6 day cleanses for Beginners, Veterans, and Master Cleansers.  Not sure which one to order?  Take this simple quiz to find out which is best for you.

    I’d love to try it! This is the year for me; I want to eat healthier, I’m trying all-natural or homemade beauty remedies (the OCM is THE BEST thing I’ve tried yet!), cutting out all fried foods, and learning what my body needs to be healthy and happy. I’m still a newbie at this though, so I’d love a kick-start. My biggest problem is my energy level. I have been sick since the new year and I’m tired of being tired and ill!

    I would love to win this cleanse because I have tried so many different cleanses and diets in the past that don’t work! I’m always good for 2/3 of the day then fail and give up because I have no energy, am starving, or my cravings for real food are too strong (or all of the above)! Please let me win this cleanse I really want to try something that works!!

    I would like to try your product as I have been trying a vegan diet for the past 8 months. My friend, who is also vegan, has tried this detox product and has recommended that I try it as well. I am a nurse and I would like to share this product with other people after getting the chance to try it myself!

    I love cleansing. I have been struggling with GI troubles for a ling time. I have been tested for gluten allergies, sugar allergies, and bacterial overgrowth. afrer various treatments i finally went vegan which has made a huge difference. Recently i tried a cleanse, and within the second day I began feeling light, more energetic, a d I actually worked the entire weekend on call at the hospital without a single cup of coffee, never feeling tired, and still was able to workout when I got home. This March I am going to NYC for a wedding and Chicago for my birthday. Both events I am sure will be filled with tons of food and I am convinced a cleanse will get my body set for these exciting events. Hopefully I’ll win!!!

    I would love to try this cleanse! I’ve been contemplating purchasing a package for awhile now but have always been skeptical since I make so many smoothies at home. I’ve only completed one cleanse before and didn’t really see the results I was looking for, but since everyone that has tried Kaeng Raeng seems to rave about it I’d love to give it a try!

    Hi, Detox Diva!!

    I would LOVE to try a Kaeng Raeng cleanse!! I’ve never had the experience of one before–perhaps I’ve been holding out for one that comes highly recommended and that looks interesting–but this one would be the perfect opportunity.

    Thank you SO much for your thorough reviews, as well as your time & consideration!! They are all much-appreciated.

    i would love this because there are so many products out there that don’t work and I’ve only heard amazing things about these cleanses!

  22. Teniesha
    Teniesha says:

    I’ve heard loads of good things about Kaeng Raeng, but as a grad student with a tight budget, I don’t feel like I have the money right now to purchase a kit. My skin has been horrendous lately, despite the fact that I eat well and use gentle cleansing products. I therefore have a suspicion it’s something deeper, something only an effective cleanse could combat, which is why I’d love to try Kaeng Raeng. 🙂

    Beth says:

    I have been thinking about doing a cleanse for a while now and reading about several. I have lost 38 pounds in the last 2 years and at a plateau…thought this would get me rejuvenated and ready to go again. This company keeps appearing in my internet travels of cleanses and it looked the best to me:) Would love to try your product and be even healthier. I m in my mid 50’s and want to make it longer!!!

  24. Katie Susick
    Katie Susick says:

    I would like to try this because I just recently came off of the Mirena IUD. It had cause a 40 lbs weight gain in me after I had me daughter 2 years ago. You see I had lost all my preg weight just before having it placed and about 2 months after it was placed, I gained all the weight back. Two years and I couldn’t loose weight even following clean eating and exercise 6 days a week. Well, 48 hours after having it removed I have lost 5.5 lbs and the belly bloat has gone down significantly. My husband suggested I no longer take a hormonal bc so that my body could heal and get back to its natrual state. I’d live the cleanse to help me achieve this goal of getting rid of all the toxins in my body and becoming healthy again for myself and my family.

      Katie says:


      I read your comment and realized I could have written it myself. I just came off the Mirena last month and was looking for a detox as well. I’m planning on trying this one over the long weekend coming up, but I was curious as to whether it worked for you?

  25. Maryutz1
    Maryutz1 says:

    I have always be skeptical about detoxing and cleansing, so I have never tried it before. After researching different products for a while, I came across the Kaeng raeng Cleanse. I read many reviews and watched the informational videos on the Kaeng Raeng Cleanse, and I feel that this product would be a great way for me to jumpstart my road to healthy, clean living. I like how this product is more of a cleanse, rather than “detox”, and the fact that it tastes great doesn’t hurt, too!

  27. VictoriaDomite
    VictoriaDomite says:

    There are so many reasons I would love to try this cleanse! First off, I am at the heaviest I have ever been and that has given me motivation to start losing weight… I have a bad family health history, which is also another motivation for me to get healthy and fit. I feel that after eating healthy for about two weeks now, this would give me something new and exciting to keep me going. I have also never done a cleanse before so this would be my first time trying. I have done a lot of research on different cleanses and Kaeng Raeng just sticks out to me as the best; I really like the fact that it is all natural, vegan, gluten free, AND caffeine free! That’s amazing to me…

    I have been looking at Kaeng Raeng for a long time now, I even asked for it for Christmas but it was nowhere to be found 🙁 Being that I cannpt afford this cleanse anytime soon, I would be so happy and grateful to win it!

    I am a 26 year old mother of two, I take care of my husband who is suffering from a brain injury. I have more stress then I’m used to. I have tried tons of stuff to loose weight,gaining more now than ever I decided to join a gym. I’m going about 5 times a week. I don’t know but I can still feel the heaviness bloating or something. I wonder if it could be all the toxins in my body???

  29. Claudia C
    Claudia C says:

    I would love to try a ready to go cleanse system. I have never done one before and would be curious how I would feel/look after. There is no way I could do it on my own, but prepackaged with directions? Plus she said its heavy on fruit…..which I would be very happy with vs. more greens. Gotta start somewhere, right? Hope I get chosen! I would 100% do a review to document a newbie like me going through the process.

      thedetoxdiva says:

      This reply caught my eye. I am not sure which cancer meds you were on or which type of tumour you fought (bravo for getting through it!). Please find out though if it was an estrogen dependent tumor. You will want to avoid the soy in this for a time if it was.

  33. dawnmarie
    dawnmarie says:

    I read about the cleansing on JWOW’s website and felt I would be a great candidate for the free daily supply, because I already take at least 20 vitamins and minerals per day. My diet consist of vegetables, yogurts and fruits, along with daily exercises. This would be a great supplement to my daily diet and would give my system a great cleansing. I would love to continue using this product regularly and have family and friends who would appreciate using the Kaeng Raeng Cleanser. Good Luck everyone, Peace & Grace everyone~

    • thedetoxdiva
      thedetoxdiva says:

      DawnMarie, you have to hear me on this….. If you are taking 20 Vitamins and minerals per day by supplement you are absorbing not even 20%! You do need the cleanse but to detox from all those supplements!! While I don’t know why you have restricted your diet as much as you have, I can’t help wondering if you are setting yourself up for failure somehow. Please, find a whole foods source of supplementation, watch the sugar consumption (spoiler alert:: too much yogurt is too much sugar) up the green veggies and introduce some green smoothies if you aren’t already and make sure you are getting a variety of protein.

      • dmtauriello
        dmtauriello says:

        Thank you so kindly for replying to my comment. I have been extremely careful more so than I was in the past with my diet in the last couple years, because of my digestive system has changed a lot in the last 5 years or after I hit 40. When I eat healthy small meals during the day and healthy snack at night, my digestive problems seem to be much better. If I don’t take my vitamins everyday, I feel very sluggish. I have been taken them since my early 20’s, I take Vitamins B-100, C, Multi, Magnesium, Selenium, fish oil, E, calcium, etc. I feel that it has kept my health, skin, and hair in good condition and great energy and stamina. This detox I agree would definetely cleanse the system from toxins and would be an excellent idea. I understand to up the green vegetables, but what is the green smothies and what do they consist of and what proteins are you suggesting? I am aware of the sugar in Chobani’s yogurt would a plain yogurt be better and adding blueberries or such better? Thank you very much, Peace & Grace~

        • thedetoxdiva
          thedetoxdiva says:

          A plain yogurt would be much better with added berries. Greek yogurt works well, just make sure it is bio-active. You are taking an awful lot of supplements that you don’t need (such as calcium, taking it for the wrong reasons). Green smoothies and juices with a variety of greens (rotate your greens), veggies like celery, carrots, turnips, pretty much the sky’s the limit, berries, there are many many recipes online and even a few on this site that are delicious. Proteins, either from wild, organic, and or free-range or grass fed sources such as beef, poultry, or fish, OR quinoa, small amounts of tofu, beans and lentils, even some high quality protein powder and a varied diet is going to ensure that you get enough protein. I am not suggesting that you subtract anything (other than some of the supplements that you are taking in favor of more foods and the amount of natural sugars you are getting) rather add in some high quality proteins, and lots of varied greens and veggies along with some nuts and seeds to keep your hair, skin, nails and health in tip top shape!

            Sorry to butt in, but you mentioned green smoothies & protein powders. What do you think of the green smoothie (vegetable) powders? I’ve been looking online to try one, but there are so many and I don’t know which are good and which are full of unneeded fillers. Do you have one you recommend?

          • thedetoxdiva
            thedetoxdiva says:

            I have TONS of recommendations Holly! I have like three I recommend because, let’s face it, sometimes vegetable lack real “oomph”. I am about to do a few posts on the ones I recommend but if you email me at jacqueline@thedetoxdiva.com then I will make sure you get a sneak peek of my recommendations! I usually don’t like relying on protein powders but to be honest I use a few. My favorites are Sun Warrior Protein Blend and Sun Warrior Protein Powder from brown rice. Both are awesome and I usually add to smoothies on the days that I am not eating meat or when I feel a little on the weak side. Optimally, if you are eating a whole foods diet, you wouldn’t need it, but in today’s society….. I think a FEW supplement powders are really useful.
