if you add some dextrose to a protein shake isnt this just the same as a meal replacement?

(Good) MRPs generally use casein as the primary protein source, due to the fact is is digested much more slowly than whey, and use maltodextrin--which is technically a complex-carb--as their carb source. They also have vitamins and minerals added.
