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 noting that egg whites, as a source of protein, have a lot going for them. First of all, the bioavailability of eggs is second only to that of whey and casein. Refer to this article for more information. Bioavailability is a measurement of how efficiently your body uses a specific type of dietary protein. In essence, the higher its bioavailability, the more efficiently a protein source is used by the body, and the more bang you get for your nutritional buck! Eggs are also a complete source of essential branched-chain amino acids, which means that they contain all of the amino acids that the body needs, but cannot produce on its own. This, paired with the fact that they are easily digested, make eggs one of the best ways to boost your protein intake.
