Simply the best vanilla protein powder.
3 reasons to try our vanilla protein powder:
1. Our vanilla protein powder is additive-free.
We make the best vanilla protein powder for a number of reasons, one being our complete avoidance of food additives. Conversely, most protein powders are laden with emulsifiers, stabilizers, thickeners, sweeteners, and flavors. These additives may enhance attributes such as flavor, texture, and shelf life, but they can also trigger uncomfortable side effects and inflict long-term harm to the digestive system.
Essentially, due to their stark dissimilarity to real food, food additives prove challenging for digestion. Consequently, they linger in the digestive tract for longer than food should, granting ample time for gut bacteria to eat. As these bacteria eat, they produce gas, which leads to bloating and abdominal discomfort. Moreover, gas hampers the transit of food through the colon, resulting in slower colonic transit. This can culminate in constipation.
Over time, the accumulation of food additives, especially if consumed daily through protein shakes, can disrupt regulatory pathways in the gut. Eventually, this may contribute to the emergence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and systemic inflammatory disorders.
When purchasing protein powder, one additive to avoid at all costs is artificial sweeteners. In the long run, artificial sweeteners rank among the most detrimental food additives due to their profound influence on the composition of your gut microbiota. This, in turn, can trigger severe and chronic gastrointestinal problems, provoke widespread inflammation, and inflict lasting harm to the gut microbiome.
Certain sweeteners, particularly sugar alcohols like xylitol, undergo poor absorption within the gut, thus serving as a food for your hungry gut bacteria. Furthermore, they have the potential to cause diarrhea by drawing water into the intestines. Finally, you may now have a culprit 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
our vanilla protein powder ingredients:
egg whites, coconut, vanilla, monk fruit
Protein Matrix Comprised of (Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Isolate, Calcium Caseinate, Micellar Casein, Milk Protein Isolate, Egg Albumen, Glutamine Peptides), Polydextrose, Sunflower Creamer (Sunflower Oil, Corn Syrup Solids, Sodium Caseinate, Mono- and Diglycerides, Dipotassium Phosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Soy Lecithin, Tocopherols), Natural and Artificial Flavor, MCT Powder (Medium Chain Triglycerides, Nonfat Dry Milk, Disodium Phosphate, Silicon Dioxide), Lecithin, Cellulose Gum, Salt, Yellow 5, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Papain, Bromelain
*This is the actual ingredient list of one of the best-selling protein powders in the United States.
2. Our vanilla protein powder is dairy-free.
A second reason why we make the best vanilla protein powder is that we steer clear of dairy-based proteins. Many protein powders, on the contrary, contain whey or casein protein. Whey and casein are byproducts of cheese and yogurt production, and notorious for triggering digestive side effects. This is especially true for individuals with lactose intolerance and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Many individuals, particularly those affected by lactose intolerance and IBS, have difficulty completely breaking down lactose, the sugar in dairy. As you just learned, when food is only partially digested, it feeds the bacteria residing in your gastrointestinal tract, resulting in various adverse effects. If whey or casein protein powder gives you stomach pain, consider exploring dairy-free substitutes.
3. Our vanilla protein powder is made with real foods.
One final compelling reason why we make the best vanilla protein powder is our use of real food protein sources as opposed to protein concentrates and isolates. Unlike the majority of protein powders, which use stripped-down dietary proteins, our protein powders contain the real thing. Protein concentrates and isolates appear on the ingredient list as “pea protein” and “whey protein” rather than “peas” and “whey.”
It is not worth diving into the details, but it is worth noting that protein concentrates and isolates undergo extensive mechanical and chemical processing. Occasionally, manufacturers resort to the usage of carcinogenic solvents like hexane to isolate (separate) the protein from the food source. Consequently, the substance you ingest bears no resemblance to real food.
Your digestive system has evolved to process naturally occurring foods, not artificially formulated imitations. Introducing anything other than real food may therefore result in discomfort. While the long-term consequences of consuming processed foods such as protein isolates is not fully understood, a growing body of research indicates that it can disrupt the composition of your gut microbiota and inflict lasting harm on your gut microbiome.
Your gut serves a more significant purpose than merely facilitating food digestion; it serves as a protective barrier against pathogens, plays a role in educating your immune system, and has a direct or indirect impact on most of your physiological functions. Consequently, disruptions to the gut microbiome have been closely associated with the development of numerous chronic diseases. For that reason, it is in your best interest to steer clear of protein powders made with protein concentrates and isolates.
Instead of relying on protein concentrates or isolates, we make the best protein powders using real foods such as egg whites and almonds. Egg whites undergo a simple process of pasteurization and dehydration before they are transformed into protein powder. Almonds, on the other hand, are roasted, pressed to reduce some of the oil content, and finely ground. These real foods offer a convenient and easily digestible alternative to protein concentrates and isolates.
Real foods encompass a range of enzymes and other aids that assist in the breakdown of food, facilitating the body’s absorption of essential nutrients. In contrast, protein isolates and concentrates have been stripped of these digestive aids, making them more challenging for the body to process and assimilate. Additionally, minimally-processed plant-based foods like almonds are abundant in fiber, which promotes healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
Unless you have specific sensitivities or allergies to eggs, egg white protein proves to be the optimal choice for promoting gut health. Egg whites have low fiber content, are low in FODMAPs, possess a natural alkaline nature, and boast the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) among all whole foods. Our valued customers have reported fewer digestive issues when using egg white protein powder compared to other protein powder variants.
For those who cannot consume eggs, we offer our vegan almond protein powder as a viable alternative. We favor almonds over other plant protein sources due to their gut-friendly properties. Research suggests that almonds have prebiotic attributes capable of enhancing the diversity and composition of the gut microbiome.

What is the best vanilla protein powder?
Protein powder is a convenient, powdered alternative to high-protein foods. While it may not possess a nutritional edge over other dietary protein sources, its unparalleled convenience sets it apart. Our vanilla protein powder uses egg whites – the transparent liquid surrounding an egg’s yellow yolk – as the main source of protein. Egg whites naturally contain lots of protein, and a simple process of pasteurization and drying is all that is needed to transform them into protein powder. In comparison to the elaborate methods involved in extracting protein from peas, milk, and other protein sources, the level of processing required for egg white protein powder is minimal. As a result, we are proud to declare our vanilla protein powder as the most natural protein powder available today.
What to mix with vanilla protein powder?
We recommend mixing vanilla protein powder with 1-2 cups of cold milk. If protein shakes are not your thing, you can mix vanilla protein powder with oatmeal and yogurt, or add it to baked goods.
What to make with vanilla protein powder?
You can make smoothies, pancakes, and overnight oats with vanilla protein powder. Check out our vanilla protein powder recipes for more ideas.

I am so thankful that this egg white protein powder exists. The vanilla flavor is delicious. Previously, I had tried Whey protein, and it caused skin breakouts every time. Fortunately, my skin stays clear with Drink Wholesome protein powder!
I just want to tell you that the products have literally saved my life and I thank you for that! I have Lupus and recurrent SIBO and when my gut is healing from SIBO I cannot tolerate much food besides rice, fish and potatoes. I desperately needed something for breakfast and all the protein shakes out there I reacted negatively to and believe me I tried most of them on the market. Sugar is a huge trigger for me but I’m able to do the monk fruit and that gives me a sweet treat. I also love how they foam from the egg whites. You made a great product for people with severe gut issues that tastes great. I have to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for making something I can have for breakfast snack and dessert!
Recently I have had really bad stomach issues that I can’t seem to figure out, and drinking your product every morning in my smoothies helps me SO much throughout the day!! This is the first protein powder product I have tried that doesn’t make me feel so sick. It does not mix as well as other protein powders I’ve tried though, but that makes sense.
I ordered a sample and my first vanilla protein powder over the last couple of weeks. I was really impressed with how quickly they shipped and arrived at my house. I know you are a small business and I really appreciate the dedication to shipping efficiency. Keep up the great work!
This is by far the cleanest and most delicious protein powder I’ve ever had!!
I am an avid exerciser and enjoy taking protein drinks after my workouts. drink wholesome is the only protein powder that does not upset my stomach. I also love the clean and simple ingredients!!!
I was diagnosed with Lupus recently and your drinks are the only ones I can tolerate that don’t aggravate a flare up. The flavor is good, better with milk than with water.
Hard to mix without a blender. Good flavor though and no bloating or gas.
This protein is the only only only one I can tolerate! I love it.
Really enjoy this protein powder. I like that it doesn’t have a chalky artificial taste, and I like that it’s not overly sweet. I make it with lactose free milk and add coffee to it and it really gets me through the morning. I’ve tried the samples of vanilla and mocha also, and am looking forward to ordering the full size bags of those flavors as well.
As a college kid and athlete this protein is great. It doesn’t disturb my Ulcerative Colitis like many other protein brands that have additives, and it is very light. It is slightly pricey for 14 servings in comparison to other brands however the quality holds up making it worth it for me.
Cannot thank you enough for creating such an overall body friendly product! I’m super sensitive to processed foods, preservatives, and chemicals. I’m prone to migraines but with the beautiful simple ingredients in your drinks I have no issues! Love the vanilla! I’m hooked on your protein!!! ❤️
I have diverticulitis and this have been a lifesaver. It’s the only thing that I can stomach during a flare up, and it is tastes amazing. Highly recommend.
Over the years I’ve tried different powders and they all have tasted terrible. So I gave up, until I found DrinkWholesome. Minimal ingredients, awesome flavors and keeps me satisfied during my work day! So far I’ve tried vanilla & peanut butter – next chocolate! Order the sample pack, that’s what I did and I was sold.
Hi . I bought a couple samples . Honestly hands down the best protein powder I’ve ever had . I barely taste anything with the vanilla flavors it’s just like drinking a glass of water . It gives me exactly what I need . I’m ordering a full bag now . Thanks for making these products .
I also recommend this product to my nutritionist. She’s going to be recommend it to her gastric bypass patients now . She’s very impressed with how you’ve made these so healthy.
You can add a teaspoon of sugar free jello pudding powder for flavor its amazing . Recommend by my nutritionist.
Love this product. Getting over a severe flare up with diverticulitis and this was the only source of protein I could handle without having any pain afterwards.
It’s delicious!! Just tried it and I’m so happy. I’m on a strict alkaline diet and all the other proteins have at least one ingredient I can’t have. So happy…thank you!
I love this stuff!! I currently have vanilla, chocolate, and PB, and love all 3😍😍😍. Finally found a protein powder that doesn’t make me bloated.
Just wanted to say your protein powder is amazing. Have had Crohn’s for 30+ years. I do a lot of yogurt smoothies, but wanted to get more protein. Found you online and tried it. Well done! Anyone with Crohn’s should be aware of your product.
TALK ABOUT A GAME CHANGER! This protein changed my life and made my tummy even happier! Every vegan and whey protein I’ve tried has immediately hurt my stomach after drinking it, BUT THIS ONE is DIFFERENT! No bloating, cramps or gas!! I am so happy with this product, you won’t be disappointed!☺️ Now go get yours!
Thank you for creating this product ! I have gastroparesis and this is the only thing that has worked for me! I have tried every other protein powder and it all makes me throw up sick! I tried yours tonight and my stomach doesn’t hurt and I’m not sick!! Thank you again!!!
I ordered the samples before I committed to a large bag because I was skeptical. I’ve tried a lot of other protein powders and they messed up my gut health SO BAD. I’ve been taking digestive enzymes and leaky gut supplements so I was nervous to try a new protein powder as it took a long time to get back on track, but this stuff. THIS STUFF. I used the chobani lactose free milk with the vanilla tastes like the inside of an almond joy and I got 40 grams of protein in. Also for all my calorie counters/ gym rats in cutting season, the unflavored powder has 90 cals, plus 1/2 cup of the chobani milk is 80. 170 calories, 30 grams of protein and it’s just like you’re drinking regular milk. Add vanilla extract or fruits for extra flavor but needless to say this will be my new go to!
Taste great, I mix it with hazelnut milk, bananas and peanut butter!
Great meal supplement, I drink them for lunch and it keeps me full the whole day.
No upset stomach! I’ve tried other protein powders in the past including HUEL, that just messed me up internally. These simple ingredients agree much better with my stomach.
Really good product and the customer service is fantastic.
Tastes great blended with frozen fruit. It’s hard to describe, but this protein powder just makes me feel good! I used to use whey, and it always made with bloated and gassy. I’m so glad that I stumbled across drink wholesome. Definitely good if you’re lactose sensitive.
Love love love. I have gastritis and this is good for me. Thank you!! I finally feel like I can have a consistent diet.
Love it. Hope they come up with protein bars and expand more!
Very good! No stomach issues anymore! I love the short list of ingredients. I ordered samples before I committed to a large bag, that’s a nice option that many other companies do not offer.
I am a new customer for sure!
First of all, I love that you can see the specs of vanilla. That’s now you know it’s real! Overall, I can’t say enough good things about this flavor and the company. I ordered samples a few weeks ago and had a bunch of questions. I called and left a voicemail. Someone call me right back and was so helpful. He even gave me two extra samples free of charge. I just ordered my first full bag a few days ago and couldn’t be happier. It’s the first time that a protein powder has given me zero stomach issues. Kudos for the great product and customer service.
So happy I found drink wholesome!! The vanilla is perfect for smoothies. I mix it with frozen strawberries, blueberries, and almond milk. Easy to digest and a great way to start my day.
Awesome shake. I’ve had Crohn’s disease for 2+0 years and it’s always been hard to find a protein powder my stomach could handle. I have no problem with digestion and it taste great. Highly recommend if you have any type of IBS or Crohn’s.
Great tasting, easy digesting protein powder at an affordable price.
I have long avoided protein powders because of all the additives and the lack of “real food”. I’ve been aiming to eat a more “real food” (less processed foods, less sugar, etc) diet for the past several years and finding Drink Wholesome is like a dream! I grew up drinking chocolate milk for breakfast every day and did until my late 20’s. Once starting my real food journey, I realized what I was drinking was not real food! I’ve also become sensitive to gluten and dairy over the last 5 years. Since it’s gluten and dairy free, I’m thrilled to have discovered this! Drink Wholesome allows me to enjoy drinking my breakfast once again but to feel great about it since it’s only real food and minimal sugar! The vanilla tastes like a less sugary-sweet vanilla milkshake (I drink mine with almond milk). When I use my immersion blender to quick blend it up, the consistency is like a melted milkshake and I love it! I add a cup of coffee to it and it tastes like the yummiest vanilla latte! Drink Wholesome is not chalky or too sweet. It doesn’t taste artificial. I’ve even gotten my husband to enjoy it which is big!
The ONLY protein powder I buy. Real ingredients that taste REAL good 🙂
This is one of the top proteins for those who tend to have trouble digesting protein supplements. Not to mention it also taste great and at a reasonable price.
I was so worried about the taste of this being just horrible but I was so wrong! It taste good and it doesn’t mess up my stomach. My ONLY complaint is the cost is a little high for me but other than that it is great!
I’ve tried a lot of brands but this is the best protein powder I’ve had. Limited and simple ingridients, no artificial sweeteners and great taste make this one my go to!
I have tried other powder protein drinks and they always upset my stomach. Frustrating 🙁 However, with wholesome drink it’s comfortably filling and sooo delicious! I am a very happy and thankful customer 😊
I love this protein powder…delicious and filling…first protein powder I have found that does NOT upset my stomach! Thank you for this wonderful, whole food product!
Having tried my fair share of protein blends. This one is definitely at the top of my preferences. Digest easily as well as taste and mixes great.
Thanks for including the scoop, it makes it much easier to measure a serving. I can’t wait to get my grandsons onto this. They may go for a different flavor but hey, all good. Thanks for being so accommodating to my needs. I love your service…and the product!
I can’t have most protein powders and this is the cleanest out there. Tastes great too.
So far great! Personally I have always been ok with eggs and I am tolerating the product without issue. I have a really sensitive stomach and have been bouncing between mostly vegan varieties of post workout protein supplements. Please fix the sample, it’s confusing. It’s a partial serving meant for tasting, but that’s not clear.
It takes like smooth vanilla milk! No after taste; no chalkiness; just pure milk. It mixes easily without clumping. I use it in smoothies and, my new favorite snack: I put a serving of the powder into Greek yogurt, add a little milk or water, and mix it up for a flavorful and super high protein treat.
The best vanilla protein powder I have ever had. It tastes like a vanilla milkshake. I love it and the ingredients! I wish it came in a bigger bag!
Delicious and easy to prepare. I sometimes add banana, molasses, or peanut butter. It gets me ready for the day!
Finally, a protein shake that actually tastes good! It mixes well and all the ingredients are good for you. I’m using the vanilla and I often add other ingredients: banana, peanut butter, cocoa, fruit jam, etc. You guys are doing a great job – thank you!!!
