The Best Low Calorie Protein Powder

The Best Low Calorie Protein Powder

Drink Wholesome is the best low calorie protein powder. 

With only 90 calories per serving, our unflavored protein powder ranks as one of the lowest calorie protein powders on the market; and low calorie does not mean low protein. Each serving of Drink Wholesome contains 20 grams of protein from just one real food ingredient: egg whites. Egg whites are among the best sources of protein for a number of reasons. First of all, they have a complete amino acid profile, which means that they contain all of the amino acids that the body needs, but cannot produce on its own. They also have a high bioavailability, second only to that of whey and casein. Refer to this study for more information. Bioavailability is a measurement of how efficiently your body uses a specific type of dietary protein. In essence, the higher its bioavailability, the more efficiently a protein source is used by the body, and the more bang you get for your nutritional buck!

Egg whites are also dairy free, making them a great option for the millions of people suffering from a dairy allergy or lactose intolerance. If your whey or casein protein powder upsets your stomach, switch to an egg white protein powder. You will love how much better it makes you feel! Finally, egg whites have a subtle flavor. You can add them to your smoothie or baking and not even notice that they are there! Most other protein powders, especially plant based protein powders, are either chalky or gritty. Drink Wholesome, I promise you, is not. Order samples to see for yourself. 

It is worth mentioning that unlike most protein powders, Drink Wholesome is not made from isolates stipped of everything but the protein. Instead, it is made from a single, minimally processed ingredient. That is why we call it “real food” protein powder. Egg whites just happen to be high in protein, and low in everything else – including calories. This allows us to make a low calorie high protein powder that is remarkably close to nature. 

For those of you on a low carbohydrate diet, you will be happy to learn that Drink Wholesome contains 1 gram of carbohydrate and 0 grams of sugar per serving. This makes it the perfect way to boost your protein without compromising your nutritional goals! For what it is worth, egg whites are also absorbed into the body at a slow rate, considerably slower than most other sources of protein. This makes our unflavored protein powder very filling, which in turn can help keep you from snacking! Depending on who you are, this can be a game changer. For this reason, and those outlined above, Drink Wholesome unflavored protein powder is the best high protein low calorie protein powder.
