drink wholesome is delicious. 

No chalky isolates

No bitter sweeteners. 

No gritty plant proteins.

No chalky isolates. 

Many protein powders and meal replacements have a terrible chalky aftertaste because they are made with protein isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein. Protein isolates are listed on the ingredient list as “pea protein” and “whey protein” for example, as opposed to “peas” and “whey.” Unlike real foods, they are missing the fats and carbohydrates that make food taste good. 

Instead of protein isolates, we use egg whites and almonds. Egg whites are simply pasteurized and dried before becoming protein powder. Almonds are just roasted, pressed, and ground. Minimally-processed ingredients like these are a delicious alternative to chalky protein isolates.

The egg whites that we use are particularly delicious because they are pasteurized and dried less than twenty four hours from when they were laid. Other eggs sit for days, sometimes weeks before being processed. As a result, they release a chemical called hydrogen sulfide, which has a potent sulfur “eggy” flavor.

No bitter sweeteners. 

Many protein powders and meal replacements have a bitter aftertaste because they are sweetened with artificial sweeteners or stevia, which activate bitter taste receptors in addition to sweet taste receptors. The bitterness can linger in your mouth for hours and ruin your smoothie. 

Instead of artificial sweeteners or stevia, we use monk fruit sweetener. 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, monk fruit is sweet like sugar.

No gritty plant proteins.

Many protein powders and meal replacements, especially plant-based ones, have a gritty texture due to their insoluble fiber content. Plants contain insoluble fiber, and the more insoluble fiber a plant contains, the grittier it is. Some plant proteins are also less processed (refined) than other types of protein, and therefore have a coarse consistency.

The main ingredient in our vegan protein powders is California almonds. Thanks to special a milling process, they have a delicious roasted flavor and smooth texture that far surpasses the chalky, gritty nature of most plant proteins. Our almond protein powder be mixed with cold milk or water, added to smoothies, and heaped onto oatmeal for a delicious protein boost.

Try drink wholesome.

A diet is not a six-week affair, it is for life. If drinking a protein or meal replacement shake is a chore, it is not sustainable in the long term, which 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 and meal replacements with simple ingredients – no more chalky protein isolates, bitter sweeteners, or gritty plant proteins.
