What is the alkaline diet?
The alkaline diet involves replacing acid-forming foods with alkaline-forming ones. The idea is that by eating certain foods, you can change the body’s pH level. pH is a measurement of how acidic or basic something is, and ranges from 0-14, with 7 being neutral. Foods with a pHs of less than 7 indicate are acidic, whereas a food with a pH of greater than 7 are basic (alkaline).
Proponents of the alkaline diet believe that changing the body’s pH level can improve overall health and help with weight loss. Although there is limited evidence to support these claims, the alkaline diet does have a good reputation because it encourages healthy eating. People on the alkaline diet eat more fruits and vegetables and less sugar, alcohol, meat, and processed food. Changes like these improve overall health and help with weight loss.
Is protein powder alkaline?
Most protein powders are NOT alkaline. There are several reasons why this is so. First of all, most protein powders contain either whey or casein, which are acid-forming byproducts of cheese and yogurt production. Second, most protein powders contain food additives and artificial sweeteners. Although all food additives and artificial sweeteners are not acid-forming, many are.

Why drink wholesome?
Although a few of our ingredients (like vanilla bean) may be acid-forming, remember the 80/20 rule; a diet that consists of 80% alkaline-forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods is perfectly healthy. With this rule of thumb in mind, our protein powders are a great fit for the alkaline diet.
It is important to note that many people adopt the alkaline diet because they have a sensitive stomach. People with stomach conditions like acid reflux (GERD), for instance, use this diet to manage their stomach’s acidity. This is relevant because our protein powders are not only alkaline, but also stomach-friendly.
