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.
