Looking for protein powder samples? vegan protein powder samples?
Drink Wholesome makes egg white and vegan chickpea protein powders with 100% real foods. Ingredients like these are not only better for you, but also better tasting. Why?
1. Many protein powders are full of heavily processed food additives. Although ingredients like these 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 like bloating. constipation, cramps, diarrhea, gas, and stomach pain.
Here is a list of the most common additives in protein powder:
acacia gum, acesulfame potassium, artificial flavors, aspartame, 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. Many protein powders have a chalky aftertaste because they are made with protein concentrates or isolates, foods chemically and/or mechanically stripped of everything but the protein. Protein concentrates and isolates are listed on the ingredient list as “whey protein” and “soy protein” as opposed to “whey” and “soybeans.” Unlike real foods, they are missing the nutrients (healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, etc.) that make food taste good.
3. Many protein powders have a bitter aftertaste because they are made with stevia or artificial sweeteners like sucralose and acesulfame potassium. Unlike sugar, sweeteners like these activate bitter taste receptors in addition to sweet taste receptors.
We use a natural sweetener called monk fruit. Monk fruit – also known as luo han guo – is a melon-like fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is created by removing the seeds and skin of the fruit, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a concentrated powder. Unlike artificial sweeteners and stevia, it tastes like sugar.
