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 foods 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, 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. Avoid whey and casein if you want an alkaline protein powder. 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?
According to the 80/20 rule: a diet that consists of 80% alkaline-forming foods and 20% acid-forming foods is perfectly healthy. It follows that although a few of our ingredients (like vanilla bean) may be acid-forming, our protein powders are still a great fit for the alkaline diet. The main ingredient in our egg white protein powders is egg whites, which are naturally alkaline. The main ingredient in our almond protein powders is almonds, which are also naturally alkaline. As you can see from our ingredient list, drink wholesome is also made without dairy, food additives, and artificial sweeteners. This makes it a great addition to the alkaline diet.
drink wholesome is also safe for people with gut issues and sensitive stomachs, which is relevant because many people who adopt the alkaline diet have gastrointestinal (GI) disorders like acid reflux (GERD). If you are sick of protein powders that upset your stomach, you have thus come to the right place. We are in the business of making easy-to-digest protein powders, and would love to help you boost your protein intake. Learn more about why we make the best protein powder for GERD.
