Eggs are not just for breakfast anymore. Athletes around the world
who are looking for an excellent protein source have used egg white
protein in their diets since it can be immensely useful for lean muscle
gains. Before supplements were created, bodybuilders had to cook dozens
of eggs at a time or were forced to drink egg whites (Yuk), which can be
unsafe. The high cholesterol and fat made this a rather unhealthy way
of getting your protein.
Now, great egg products have fixed these problems and made it easier
than ever to take in as much as you want in a single, delicious shake.
Many athletes and bodybuilders use egg supplements in shakes to gain
muscle mass. This is because eggs are nature’s most perfect form of body
soluble protein. In fact, the egg is the standard to which all other
forms of proteins are measured.
Dried egg white powders are an ideal product for bodybuilders because
they include just the white of the egg in the product. Thus, you will
have a perfect form of protein in a dried powder form that is perfect to
mix with. Egg white protein powder is pasteurized after drying in heat
chambers for a specified period of time and at a minimum required
temperature, which eliminates any chance of salmonella. A scoop of ON’s
100% Egg Protein contains the nutritional equivalent of seven egg whites
(22 grams) and takes very little time to prepare. It provides a
complete profile of essential Amino Acids, Branched Chain Amino Acids,
and Glutamic Acid.
Another way to consume egg white protein is with 100% Pure Liquid Egg
Whites and I don’t mean cracking open a raw egg and separating the
liquid egg whites from the yolk. Like the powdered form, 100% Pure
Liquid Egg Whites comes pasteurized so there is no threat of salmonella.
With no fat, no cholesterol, and less than 2 grams of carbs, it makes
it one of the best bio available protein sources available to body
builders, and because liquid egg whites are unprocessed, in my opinion
that makes them the better option. The liquid egg whites from Egg Whites
International are odorless and tasteless so you don’t get the “eggy”
taste that you may get from other egg white products.

You should know that many protein products contain a mix of different
types of protein all in one product. These products do have some egg
protein in them, usually mixed with whey protein. To prevent confusion,
