What IS in it?
Drink Wholesome makes dairy-free, additive-free protein powders with 100% real foods like non-gmo chickpeas and antibiotic/hormone-free egg whites grown/raised on farms in the USA.
What is NOT in it?
There are no artificial sweeteners, artificial and “natural” flavors, colors, preservatives, anti-caking or gelling agents, emulsifiers, stabilizers, or thickeners in our protein powders.
No food additives.
Although food additives are not necessarily bad for you in small quantities, they can add up quickly, especially if you drink a protein shake every day. At higher quantities, food additives can cause side effects.
Essentially, because food additives look nothing like real foods, we can have trouble digesting them. As a result, they sit in our guts for longer and ferment. This can cause bloating, constipation, cramps, diarrhea, gas, and stomach pain.
No concentrates or isolates.
Most protein powders are made with protein concentrates and/or isolates, foods chemically and/or mechanically stripped of everything but the protein. They are listed on the ingredients list as “whey protein” and “soy protein” as opposed to “whey” and “soy.”
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients – complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, etc. – that make food taste good. This is why most protein powders have a chalky aftertaste.
Dairy-based proteins like casein and whey can cause side effects, especially for people with lactose intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). They can can also cause acne.
No artificial sweeteners or stevia.
Unlike sugar, artificial sweeteners and stevia have a bitter (metallic) aftertaste. This is because they activate bitter taste receptors as well as sweet taste receptors.
You feel better.
Our dairy, gluten, soy, and additive-free protein powder is easy to digest. It is perfect for pregnant and breastfeeding women and people with lactose intolerance or sensitive stomachs.
It tastes better.
We use 100% real food ingredients, not protein concentrates or isolates, which makes a huge difference in terms of taste. Order samples to see for yourself.
