The Best Lactose Free Protein Powder

The Best Lactose Free Protein Powder

Drink Wholesome is the best lactose free protein powder. 

Lactose free protein powder is a great option for those who are looking to boost their protein intake and who have trouble digesting lactose. That said, lactose free protein powder that actually tastes good is really hard to find. In fact, we have only ever found one, our own. It is important to clarify that lactose free is not the same as dairy free. These two terms are used synonymously, but there are important differences. Although lactose free products do not contain lactose, they are not necessary dairy free. This is important to understand for people with a dairy allergy. Lactose free products are often made for people with lactose intolerance, and are not suitable for those with dairy allergies. Dairy free products, on the other hand, do not contain dairy, and are therefore lactose free. Our protein powders, for example, are dairy free, which means that they are lactose free as well.

Whey and casein – the two most popular types of protein powder – come from cow milk. They are not dairy-free, and most of them are not lactose free either. If you are looking for a lactose free protein powder, steer clear of these options. Instead, reach for a plant or egg white based protein powder. If you like your taste buds, however, you may not want to subject them to the grittiness and chalkiness of plant based protein powder – most plant based protein powders taste like dirt! Now to be fair, some plant based protein powders are palatable – we actually make one – but they are few and far between. Instead, I recommend that you go for egg whites. Egg whites are an amazing source of lactose free protein and they taste great. In fact, they taste like nothing, which makes them an excellent vehicle for other flavors. That said, not all egg white protein powders are the same. Unfortunately, many are loaded with highly processed additives that add little to no nutritional value to your diet. Ingredients like these have also been associated with a host of health problems, so you should think twice before eating them.

This means that you have to read the ingredient label. As a rule of thumb, if you cannot pronounce it, or find it in your kitchen, it is probably an additive. Drink Wholesome, unlike the competition, makes a delicious egg white protein powder with only real food ingredients, and we list these ingredients in a big, bold font on the front of the package. Our chocolate protein powder, for example, is made with just four real foods: egg whites, coconut, cocoa, and monk fruit. You will not find better ingredients in any other lactose free protein powder. If you would like to try Drink Wholesome, order samples. You will not be disappointed!


You are reading an article written by Drink Wholesome, a small, local company from New Hampshire. Drink Wholesome has taken a fundamentally different approach to protein powder. We use 100% real food ingredients. Research suggests that these ingredients are better for you than the highly processed additives and protein isolates found in most protein powders. They are also far better tasting as they contain the complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and other nutrients that make food taste good. Order samples to see for yourself.
