Simply the best peanut butter protein powder.
3 reasons to try our peanut butter protein powder:
1. Our peanut butter protein powder is additive-free.
We take pride in producing the best peanut butter protein powder for several reasons, and one which is our refusal to use food additives. Conversely, many other protein powders are laden with emulsifiers, stabilizers, thickeners, sweeteners, and flavors. Food additives have the potential to enhance attributes such as flavor, texture, and shelf life, but they also carry the risk of unpleasant side effects and long-term harm to the digestive system.
In essence, food additives are hard for the body to break down due to the fact that they look nothing like real food. Consequently, they tend to linger in the digestive tract for longer than food should, providing ample time for your gut bacteria to eat. As they eat, bacteria generate gas, leading to bloating and abdominal discomfort. The buildup of gas in the digestive system also hampers colonic transit, thereby resulting in constipation.
Over time, the cumulative effect of food additives, particularly if you consume a protein shake on a daily basis, can disrupt regulatory pathways in the gut. Ultimately, this disruption can pave the way for the development of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and systemic inflammatory disorders.
When purchasing protein powder, it is crucial to steer clear of one particular additive: artificial sweeteners. In the long run, artificial sweeteners prove to be among the most detrimental food additives, as they alter the composition of your gut microbiota. This can give rise to severe and chronic gastrointestinal problems, widespread inflammation, and permanent damage to the delicate balance of the gut microbiome.
Certain sweeteners, especially sugar alcohols like xylitol, are not fully absorbed by the gut. Consequently, they become a source of nourishment for your hungry gut bacteria. Additionally, they can cause diarrhea by drawing excess water into the intestines. Now, you may finally have an explanation for those post-protein shake trips to the bathroom!
Here is a list of the most common food additives in protein powder:
acacia gum, acesulfame potassium, artificial flavors, aspartame, carob bean gum, carrageenan, cellulose gum, dextrin, dextrose, erythritol, gellan gum, guar gum, gum arabic, inulin, locust bean gum, “natural” flavors, maltodextrin, rice syrup solids, soy lecithin, silica, sucralose, sunflower lecithin, xanthan gum, xylitol

2. Our peanut butter protein powder is dairy-free.
Another reason why we make the best peanut butter protein powder is that we avoid dairy-based proteins. Many protein powders, on the contrary, use whey or casein protein, which are byproducts of the production of cheese and yogurt. Both have been linked to digestive problems, particularly among individuals who suffer from lactose intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
A considerable number of people, including those afflicted by lactose intolerance and IBS, encounter difficulties breaking down lactose, the sugar in dairy products. As you just learned, incompletely digested food feeds the bacteria residing in your gastrointestinal tract, ultimately giving rise to side effects. If your stomach is upset by whey or casein protein powder, it is worth considering a dairy-free alternative.
3. Our peanut butter protein powder is made with real foods.
One reason why we make the best peanut butter protein powder is that we refrain from utilizing protein concentrates or isolates. In contrast, many protein powders are made using these ingredients, which are essentially stripped-down versions of dietary protein. Instead of being labeled as “peas” and “whey,” protein isolates and concentrates appear on the ingredient list as “pea protein” and “whey protein.”
The process of transforming protein concentrates and isolates into protein powder involves extensive mechanical and chemical processing. In some cases, manufacturers resort to carcinogenic solvents like hexane to separate the protein from the food. Consequently, the final product bears no resemblance to real food by the time it enters your body.
Consider this: your digestive system has evolved to process natural foods, not artificially engineered imitations. If you introduce anything other than real food to your gut, it may react negatively. Although the long-term effects of consuming processed foods like protein isolates are not yet fully comprehended, an increasing body of research indicates that they can disrupt the composition of your gut microbiota and inflict lasting damage on your gut microbiome.
Your gut does more than simply digest food; it also acts as a shield against pathogens, educates your immune system, and directly or indirectly influences most of your physiological functions. Consequently, disruptions in the gut microbiome have been associated with the development of several chronic diseases. It follows that steering clear of protein powders that use protein concentrates and isolates is in your best interest.
Rather than relying on protein concentrates or isolates, we make the best protein powders using real foods like egg whites and almonds. Egg whites undergo a simple process of pasteurization and dehydration before they become protein powder. Similarly, almonds are roasted, lightly pressed to remove some oil, and ground. These real foods present a digestible and gut-friendly alternative to protein concentrates and isolates.
Real foods contain a range of enzymes and other digestive aids that facilitate the breakdown of food, allowing the body to absorb nutrients more easily. In contrast, protein isolates and concentrates lack these digestive aids, making them more challenging for the body to digest and assimilate. Additionally, minimally-processed plant-based foods like almonds boast ample fiber content, which promotes healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
Unless you have an egg sensitivity or allergy, egg white protein stands as the optimal choice for gut health. Egg whites are low in fiber, low-FODMAP, naturally alkaline, and possess the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) among all whole foods. Our customers have reported fewer digestive issues with egg white protein powder compared to other types of protein powder.
For those unable to consume eggs, we offer a vegan alternative: almond protein powder. We favor almonds over other plant-based protein sources due to their gut-friendly properties. Research suggests that almonds exhibit prebiotic characteristics, which enhance the diversity and composition of the gut microbiome.

What is the best peanut butter protein powder?
Protein powder serves as a convenient, powdered alternative to high-protein foods. Although it does not possess a significant nutritional edge over other dietary protein sources, its unmatched convenience sets it apart. Our peanut butter protein powder is made using egg whites – the clear liquid around the yellow yolk of an egg. Egg whites are naturally high in protein, and through the simple processes of pasteurization and drying, they can be transformed into protein powder. When compared to the elaborate procedures involved in extracting protein from peas, milk, and various other sources, processing required for egg white protein powder is minimal. Consequently, we proudly assert that our peanut butter protein powder is the most natural powder available.

I’m pleased with this egg-white protein – it is delicious and doesn’t cause skin breakouts (like whey protein does).
I genuinely love this product. It’s the only protein powder I take. In todays day and age so many additives in ingredients mess with our endocrine system, mess with our stomachs, and aren’t good for us long term. This powder is awesome, clean, simple, and tasty.
Been on this god send product for like 6 months now, thank you for making this 🔥
I don’t write many reviews but I haven’t been this impressed with a product in a while. This is the only protein powder that you can distinctly taste each ingredient, no junk. As for the cost, I think it’s fair as egg white powder is not cheap. I will be trying other flavors!
The first time in a very long time I have had a sip of protein drink that didn’t trigger immediate reflux. No aftertaste. Definitely not super sweet but tastes like REAL ingredients. Can’t wait to try others.
This flavor is out of this world good!!! I am blown away by drink wholesome – everything from the mission to the product itself. Definitely gut-friendly. Definitely delicious. Definitely going to be back for more!
BEST PROTEIN POWDER ON THE MARKET!!! WISH THEY MADE GALLON JUGS OF THIS STUFF I RUN OUT TO QUICKLY!!!
You should buy this just for the ingredients. They’re much better than the crap in other protein supplements!!! The fact that it tastes half decent is just a bonus. FYI tastes way better in milk than water. Needs a good blender or shaker too. Don’t use a spoon, it will make a mess.
This is the best flavor. If you blend it with oat milk and a frozen banana, it tastes just like ice cream!!! I love the ingredients, the concept, the packaging, and most of all how it makes me feel. Lifetime customer here.
HOLY CRAP, I finally found a clean protein that taste amazing! Give this a shot if you are looking for something that is clean and does not taste like chalk.
I’m glad there are protein shake companies that have fewer ingredients and are mindful of acid reflux! I can’t drink other protein shakes now because my acid reflux got worse. My only criticism is that you really have to work at it to make it mix in a shaker bottle. I recommend using a blender.
My whole family uses drink wholesome! We love the clean feel of the product. There’s no funky or super sweet aftertaste. We also love the way the smoothie gives lasting energy throughout the morning. We make it with banana, almond milk, almond yogurt, and a little ice. My one criticism is that it is a bit hard to mix. You definitely need a good blender.
I can’t eat dairy/gluten and struggle with extreme bloating. drink wholesome protein powder doesn’t cause me any issues like other protein powders do! I genuinely love the taste and it helps me get my protein in without hurting my stomach! I’ve ordered from you guys 3 times now and love all the flavors!
I spent 9 months and wasted a couple hundred dollars looking for something like this. I have colitis and really need protein powder, but nothing agrees with my stomach…except for drink wholesome! I just mix it with plain soy milk. Zero stomach pain whatsoever.
This protein powder – unlike literally every other protein powder I’ve tried – does not make me run to the bathroom. I honestly don’t even care how it tastes. That alone does it for me.
This flavor is sooo good! It’s like a milkshake, but you don’t feel like crap after drinking it. Definitely good for anyone with IBS or Crohn’s.
I’ve been looking for an additive-free protein powder for years. As somebody with IBD that has always struggled with diet, this makes my life so much easier and I feel like I have more flexibility with my diet.
I was having trouble mixing it my blender bottle. Switched to a blender and had no problem. When I mix it with water, it foams a lot, so I recommend using milk. Otherwise, great product.
I like drink wholesome because of how filling it is. 1 serving is enough to keep me full until lunch. If you’re trying to cut back on snacking, I recommend adding some protein to your breakfast. It has made a huge difference for me.
I’m loving this flavor. Really good customer service too! A bag broke during shipping and they replaced it right away.
Finally a protein powder that isn’t full of junk. The flavor is really really good too. It actually tastes like peanuts. It’s a bit hard to mix if you don’t have a blender (which I don’t), but if you don’t mind little clumps, then go for it!
The zipper is hard to close which is annoying. Makes good protein bars.
This is the best protein powder in terms of taste. It has a natural and rich flavor. Love the clean ingredients too. I will say that the serving size is pretty large. This would make for a good meal replacement.
This is the better protein powder out there. After years of chalky shakes I almost gave up. Then I found this. It has an amazing peanut butter flavor.
I would recommend Drink Wholesome to anyone. Fast shipping, good customer service, and an exceptional product. It really does taste good and I love the simple ingredients. Thank you!!!
This protein powder has taken my oatmeal to the next level. I can’t say enough good things about how it tastes!!! A good option for people with acid reflux.
The serving size is bigger than the sample pack. Not an issue, just a heads up. Really good product. It makes me feel good.
I actually cannot get enough of this stuff!! My dietician recommend it to me and I’ve been having it every day. The flavor is so good and it makes me feel good too.
This flavor is CRAZY good if you like peanut butter. I add it to my morning smoothie with oat milk, banana, ice, protein powder.
I have gastritis and this is the only protein powder that doesn’t upset my stomach. I like the flavor too. I blend it with a frozen banana for a quick, on-the-go breakfast.
So glad I found this. The ingredients are simple and the flavor is perfect. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. Doesn’t give me gas either, which I can’t say about any other protein powder. Mixes well in a shaker bottle. My only complaint is that I wish the bag was bigger because I go through it too fast.
Drink Wholesome does not make bad flavors!!! I’m obsessed.
Great for sensitive stomachs. Flavor is really really good. I mix it with almond milk.
