Did someone say egg white protein powder?
Few foods have provoked as much controversy as the egg. If you are older than 25, you probably remember being told to eat eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner one day, and to cut them out of your diet the next. The driving force behind this conflict of opinion was cholesterol. Doctors used to recommend that we consume no more than 300 milligrams (mg) of dietary cholesterol per day — 200 mg for those at risk of heart disease. In 2015, however, these guidelines changed. Today, there is no recommended limit to the amount of cholesterol we should consume, but because the literature is controversial and inconclusive, many doctors still recommend that we watch our cholesterol – and therefore egg – intake. That said, there is a sunny side up! This controversy has little to nothing to do with egg whites. Of the 180-190 mg of cholesterol found in a large egg, all of it comes from the yolk. In fact, egg whites are nearly fat free, containing only one percent of the egg’s fat. They also contain about 57 percent of the egg’s protein.
Egg white protein powder is the best type of protein powder. There I said it. The protein found in egg whites is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own. Its bioavailability, that is, the ability of the body to absorb and use it, is comparable to that of whey protein. In terms of their overall nutritional profile, egg white protein powder and whey protein powder are very similar. The only significant difference is that egg white protein powder is dairy free. Given that millions of Americans suffer from lactose intolerance, this makes egg white protein powder a clear winner in my opinion. To be fair, eggs are an allergen, as is dairy, but egg allergies are far less common than lactose intolerance.
When compared to plant based proteins, the most common being pea protein, egg whites have one clear advantage – they taste better. Egg whites have a neutral flavor and smooth mouthfeel, and I cannot say the same about most plant based proteins. Of all the plant based protein powders that I have tried, only one did not taste like wet socks. Despite being loaded with artificial sweeteners, most plant based protein powders are intolerable in my opinion. They also tend to be gritty. Egg white protein powder, on the other hand, tastes delightful and goes down easy.
If you are looking for the best egg white protein powder, you have come to the right place. Drink Wholesome makes egg based protein powder using real food ingredients. Our vanilla protein powder, for example is made with just six real foods – egg whites, coconut, chickpeas, vanilla, monk fruit, and sea salt. Each serving contains twenty grams of protein, most of which comes from the egg whites. If you are not sold by the ingredient list, wait until you taste Drink Wholesome. I guarantee that it will taste better than any protein supplement you have ever had. Most egg white protein powders are unflavored, which means that you either have to choke them down, or blend them with other ingredients. Drink Wholesome, on the contrary, was created to taste great on its own. This saves you time, and the headache of making a smoothie. Order samples online to see what all the hype is about.
