Drink Wholesome has taken a fundamentally different approach to vegan protein powder. We use 100% real food ingredients, not food additives or isolates stripped of everything but the protein. Our chocolate peanut butter protein powder is made with just 6 real foods: chickpeas, peanuts, coconut, cocoa, monk fruit, and sea salt. These real foods are better tasting and better for you.

What are real foods? Real foods are single ingredient, minimally processed foods. Research shows that they are good for you. Most protein powders are not made with real foods. Instead, they are made with protein isolates. Protein isolates are ingredients stripped of everything but the protein. Eating protein in an isolated form is like taking a multivitamin instead of eating vegetables. It is missing the healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, and other nutrients that make food taste good. This is why most protein powders taste like chalk. In case you were wondering, protein isolates are easy to identify on the ingredients list. They are listed as “whey protein,” “pea protein,” and “soy protein,” as opposed to “milk,” “peas,” and “soybeans.”
Unlike Drink Wholesome, most protein powders are also made with of food additives. Thickeners like xanthan gum and sunflower lecithin and artificial sweeteners like acesulfame potassium and sucralose are some of the most common offenders. Highly processed ingredients like these are a far cry from real foods. At best they add little to no nutrition to your diet, and at worst they cause side effects. As a rule of thumb, if you cannot pronounce it, it is added junk. Drink Wholesome is additive-free.
Boosting your protein intake should not be a chore. That is why Drink Wholesome is both better for you and better tasting. At the end of the day, protein powder is just food, and food should taste good. If you are tired of choking down your protein shake, reach for Drink Wholesome.

It is worth mentioning that we use chickpeas as the main source of protein in our vegan protein powders. We have found that they can compete with whey and casein protein in terms of taste, mouthfeel, and even functionality. Chickpeas are also far more sustainable than dairy based proteins, making them an easy winner in our book. When it comes to other plant based proteins, chickpeas are also a frontrunner. Although they have a similar nutritional profile to green and yellow split peas, they taste far better. Chickpea protein powder is also non-allergenic, non-GMO (unlike soy), and has an excellent amino acid profile.
