Why is it easy to digest?

Our gut-friendly protein powders and meal replacements are additive-free, dairy-free, and made with real foods, not protein isolates – 99% of supplements fail to meet at least one of these criteria. They are perfect for people with gut issues and sensitive stomachs, as well as for people just looking to boost their protein intake without the processing and added junk.

Why does it taste better?

Our protein powders and gut-friendly meal replacements are not chalky or gritty because they are made with real foods, not protein isolates (foods stripped of everything but the protein).

Where is it made?

Our easy to digest protein powders and meal replacements are handmade in Plymouth, Massachusetts in a GMP-Certified facility inspected by the US Food and Drug Administration and Massachusetts Board of Health.

How do I use it?

We recommend blending our protein powders and easy to digest meal replacements with cold milk or water. They can also be added to smoothies, oatmeal, and other recipes.

Egg whites vs almonds?

Our protein powders are made with either pasteurized egg whites or roasted almonds. Unless you have a sensitivity or allergy to eggs, egg whites are the easiest to digest. They are low in fiber, low-FODMAP, and naturally alkaline. If you cannot eat eggs, almonds are also a gut-friendly source of protein. They possess prebiotic properties and can improve the diversity and composition of the gut microbiome.

Protein vs meal replacement?

The difference between protein powders and meal replacements is the nutrition content. Protein powders tend to be high in protein, and low in everything else. Meal replacements have more fats, carbs, and other nutrients because they are intended to replace the nutritional value of a meal.

Why drink wholesome?

It is estimated that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from a digestive disease. It is also estimated that 1 in 5 Americans use protein supplements regularly. Some quick math reveals that over 10 million Americans with gut issues use protein supplements, which is a huge problem because the average supplement is not gut-friendly. Most protein powders and shakes are made with dairy-based proteins, food additives, and heavily-processed protein isolates, none of which are easy to digest. For this reason, many people experience bloating, constipation, diarrhea, gas, nausea, and stomach pain after using protein supplements.

My name is Jack. I am a high school teacher, coach, and the founder of drink wholesome. In 2020, I was so sick of protein powders that upset my stomach, that I decided to make my own with simple, easy to digest ingredients. I quickly realized that I was not the only person who had trouble digesting protein supplements, so I brought my gut-friendly recipes to market. Today, my egg white protein powders, vegan almond protein powders, and meal replacement powders, which are all proudly handmade in New England, have helped thousands of people with gut issues and sensitive stomachs boost their protein intake without uncomfortable side effects.
