drink wholesome is delicious because…

drink wholesome is made with real foods.

Most protein powders have a chalky aftertaste because they are made with protein concentrates and/or isolates, which are foods stripped of everything (fats, carbs. etc.) but the protein. Eating a protein concentrate or isolate is like eating a multivitamin instead of fruits and veggies. It is not the same, not even close.

Instead of using protein concentrates or isolates, we make our protein powders egg whites or almonds. Minimally processed ingredients like these are a delicious alternative to chalky protein concentrates and isolates because they taste like real food! 

The egg whites we use in our egg white protein powder are particularly delicious because they are pasteurized and dried less than twenty four hours from when they were laid. Other eggs sit for days before being processed, causing them to release a chemical called hydrogen sulfide, which has a potent sulfur “eggy” flavor. Moreover, the almonds we use in our vegan almond protein powder taste far better than any other plant-based protein source because they contain more fats and less insoluble fiber. Fats give a rich flavor, and less insoluble fiber means less grit. Insoluble fiber, which can be found in all plants, does not dissolve in water and is the reason why many plant-based protein powders are gritty.

drink wholesome is flavored with real foods.

We are the only protein powder company using 100% real foods to flavor our protein powders. Our vanilla protein powders, for example, are flavored with real Madagascar vanilla beans. Every other vanilla protein powder is made with “natural” and/or artificial vanilla flavor. Natural vanilla flavor rarely contains real vanilla, and if it does, it contains an added carrier like propylene glycol. Under current regulations, natural flavor manufacturers are not required to declare carriers, solvents, and preservatives on their ingredient lists, even if they are synthetic.

Basically, unless you choose drink wholesome, you are most likely consuming a cocktail of added chemicals when you drink a protein shake. This is not only bad news for your health, but also for your taste buds. Real vanilla has a mild, but delicious flavor, whereas vanilla flavoring tastes like chemicals.

drink wholesome is sweetened with real foods.

Many protein powders have bitter aftertaste because they are sweetened with artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols, or stevia. Unlike sugar, all three types of sweeteners activate bitter taste receptors in addition to sweet taste receptors, and can ruin your smoothie.

Instead of artificial sweeteners or stevia, we use either pure maple sugar or pure monk fruit. Monk fruit – also known as luo han guo – is a melon-like fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is dried into a concentrated powder. Thanks to non-caloric compounds called mogrosides, it is sweet like sugar.


“It has ingredients you can actually pronounce and is freaking delicious.” – Kallie

A diet is not a six-week affair, it is for life, so if drinking a protein shake is a chore, it is not sustainable in the long term. This defeats the purpose of using it in the first place.

Do your taste buds a favor, and switch to drink wholesome. We make the best tasting protein powders for people with sensitive stomachs and gut issues like IBS using a short list of simple, gut-friendly ingredients. Order samples to see for yourself.
