Looking for the best vegan vanilla protein powder?

Drink Wholesome makes the ONLY plant-based vanilla protein powder with 100% real food ingredients. Other protein powders are NOT made with real foods; they are made with protein concentrates or isolates and food additives. 

Other protein powders contain food additives. Although food additives 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 nasty side effects. 

For instance, because highly processed food additives look nothing like real food, we have trouble digesting them. As a result, the trillions of bacteria in our guts have more time to eat and more time to release gas. This gas can cause bloating and stomach pain. Accumulating evidence suggests that food additives also disrupt regulatory pathways in the intestine and can result in the development of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and systemic inflammatory disorders. 

As a rule of thumb, if you cannot pronounce it, it is a food additive. Not sure what to look for? Here are some 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

You may have noticed that this list includes several artificial sweeteners. Recent research suggests that artificial sweeteners are particularly bad for the stomach because they alter the composition of our gut microbiota. 

Other protein powders also contain protein concentrates or isolates, foods chemically and/or mechanically stripped of everything but the protein. Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients (healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, etc.) that make food taste good. If your protein shake has a chalky aftertaste, you know what I am talking about. 

Protein isolates are listed on the ingredient list as “whey protein” and “soy protein” as opposed to “whey” and “soybeans.” 

Sick of protein powders that upset your stomach? Sick of protein powders that taste like chalk? Switch to Drink Wholesome. Our happy customers include athletes of all ages, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, people with lactose intolerance, and people with sensitive stomachs.

Why chickpeas? We use chickpeas as the main source of protein in our vegan protein powders. We have found that they can compete with animal proteins in terms of taste, mouthfeel, and even functionality. When it comes to other plant proteins, chickpeas are a frontrunner too. 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.

Product Information – 12 servings, 20 grams of plant-based protein per serving. Made by hand in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Refund Policy – Drink Wholesome does not issue refunds or accept returns, but if a product arrives damaged or spoiled we will send a replacement at no cost to you.

  1. Katharine

    This new vegan flavor is unreal. I really liked the old peanut butter chocolate flavor, but this one is even better. By far the best vegan protein powder I’ve had. It’s has the perfect amount of sweetness if you mix it with dairy free milk. The vanilla is subtle and the maple sugar is a nice touch. The best part is that it makes me feel good. No bloating at all! Yay for good ingredients.

  2. Naomi

    I was desperate for a safe protein powder. I found this one and really like it! It doesn’t cause stomach pain (has been an issue for me in the past). It’s definitely sweet with more maple than vanilla flavor in my option.

  3. Samantha

    This protein powder has been a godsend. I really need to get more protein in my diet but I couldn’t not find one that didn’t upset my stomach. I found Drink Wholesome online and tried some samples. I liked the this one so I ordered two bags and I’m so happy. It tastes good and I have had ZERO stomach pain. Thank you.

  4. David

    This doesn’t taste chalky or gritty, at all. Smooth consistency, sweet but not too sweet. I’d never tried a chickpea protein powder before and I like it much more than pea protein. It doesn’t have that plant aftertaste. Definitely recommend.

  5. Dianne

    This is the only protein powder I’ve tried that doesn’t cause bloating. Mixes surprisingly well and tastes very good for plant-based. I only wish it came in bigger bags.

  6. Gail

    I love this protein drink! I’ve tried so many different ones and they all upset my stomach, not this one! Blends beautifully, tastes great and no bloating and no horrible tummy sounds at work! Thank you for making an simple and safe drink!
