The Best Protein Powder For Sensitive Stomachs

Drink Wholesome is the best protein powder for sensitive stomach.

Does your protein powder upset your stomach? Protein powders are notorious for causing digestive distress, and whey protein is the most notorious of them all. Most of whey protein’s side effects are related to lactose intolerance, which is the inability to digest lactose, the main carbohydrate in dairy products. Lactose intolerance is incredibly common, and if your whey protein causes digestive distress, you should switch to a dairy-free protein powder.

Among the best dairy-free alternatives are plant-based protein powders, like pea protein, and egg white protein powder. It is important to note, however, that the fiber in plant-based options, especially in large doses, causes bloating, gas and either constipation or diarrhea for many people. It is also worth noting that many plant based protein powders are full of additives that can upset your stomach. Some of the top offenders are xanthan gum, guar gum, inulin, carrageenan, and erythritol. Unfortunately, the only way to determine whether or not a particular plant-based protein powder is right for you is to try it, which can get expensive. For what it is worth, Drink Wholesome makes the best vegan protein powder for sensitive stomach. Our customers love our vegan protein makes them feel, and it has a whopping eight grams of fiber!
