Is protein powder savory? 

Protein plays an important role in muscle repair, immune function, and overall health. Incorporating savory protein powder into your meals is an easy way to ensure that you are meeting your daily protein needs. It can be especially helpful for people who struggle to get enough protein from dietary protein sources like meat and fish. 

If you are familiar with protein shakes and powders, you will know that most of them are sweet, as opposed to savory. Unlike most protein powders, which come in flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, savory protein powders are designed to complement savory dishes and recipes. They are usually plain or unflavored, and can be made with a variety of protein sources.

If you have a savory tooth, or are simply looking for a protein powder to soups, sauces, and other savory dishes, you have come to the right place. This article will explain how to choose a savory protein powder that not only tastes good, but is also good for you. 

What is the best savory protein powder? 

First of all, as long as you are eating a balanced diet, any type of protein can help you achieve your wellness goals. In other words, no one type of protein is better than another. That does not mean that all savory protein powders are created equal, however. 

Savory protein powders are meant to be added to savory recipes, so you want to find a protein powder that will not change the flavor or texture of your dish. This is easier said than done because most protein powders have a chalky aftertaste.

The reason why most protein powders taste like chalk is that they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein. Unlike whole foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the fats, carbs, and other nutrients that make food taste good.

If you do not want your soups, sauces, and baked goods to taste like a hockey puck, you need to use a savory protein powder made with whole foods. This is where drink wholesome can help.

Instead of using protein concentrates or isolates, we make savory protein powders with whole foods like egg whites and almonds. They are the least chalky protein powders on the market, making them a great addition to your favorite savory dishes.

For soups, sauces, and dressings, we recommend using our unflavored egg white protein powder. It has such a neutral flavor that you will not even notice the difference. For baked goods, we recommend our unflavored vegan almond protein powder. It has a rich, nutty flavor that pairs extremely well with muffins, bread, and the like. 

Why drink wholesome

drink wholesome is additive-free.

The reason why we make the best savory protein powder is that we do not use any food additives whatsoever. Most other companies add thickeners, emulsifiers, and other additives to their protein powders to help improve characteristics like texture and mix-ability. The downside is that ingredients like these are terrible for your health, even in small amounts. 

Food additives resist digestion because they look nothing like real food. It follows that they sit around in your gut, which can cause a number of painful side effects. On the one hand, partially digested food additives can cause your colon to absorb extra water, resulting in diarrhea. On the other hand, they can feed your gut bacteria, which release gas as they eat. Excessive gas can give rise to symptoms such as bloating, stomach pain, even constipation.

Here is a list of the most common food additives in protein powder:

acacia gum, acesulfame potassium, artificial flavors, aspartame, carrageenan, cellulose gum, dextrin, dextrose, erythritol, gellan gum, guar gum, gum arabic, inulin, locust bean gum, “natural” flavors, maltodextrin, rice syrup solids, soy lecithin, silica, sucralose, sunflower lecithin, xanthan gum, xylitol

What is more, in the long term, regularly eating food additives can disrupt regulatory mechanisms in your intestines. This can increase your risk of developing inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and other inflammatory conditions.

Food additives can also disrupt your gut microbiome – the collection of microorganisms living in your gut. An imbalanced gut microbiome is a leading driver of inflammation and linked to the development of several chronic diseases.

In summary, because it is additive-free and made with whole foods, drink wholesome is hands down the best savory protein powder. You will not find a more natural or delicious way to give your favorite savory dishes a protein boost.
