Anyone use egg white protein? What brand do you use?

Thinking about getting some egg white protein for occasional PWO use. I'm looking around on Amazon and am not seeing any ingredient lists, but NOW Foods is probably a good bet. Any brands recommended or recommended to avoid?

I can't imagine someone from the Maori tribe for example, after working all day and coming in for dinner, taking a chicken egg and dropping out the yolk. A lot of this is conjecturing and theory about the postwork out stuff and will be replaced by something else. I just thinking eating "whole" foods is the best way to go. Taking out the yolk is processing it.

@Jules, your feelings are right as far as everything I've ever read. Fat slows the digestion time for everything else eaten around the same time. In the PWO period (lets just say 30min to 1 hour) you want those protein and carbs shuttled directly where they are needed as fast as possible. So, any fat (or fiber coincidentally) will slow it down more so than not. I go coconut water and whey immediately PWO. then one hour after drinking that i go lean chicken breast and sweet potatoe. No fat. Bit of fiber but not much.

and i mean, raw eggs still freak me out a little. Just because I grew up eating CAFO eggs and the thought of those raw is purdy gross. I'm sure Jules of course would rock the pasturedsuperfarmereggs

I think that would be worth a try- there's concern about biotin deficiency, but would prob be ok to do just sometimes.

May be a stupid question but what about adding the raw egg whites to almond milk? Haven't tried it but will :)

Usually I'm all about the whole eggs- been reading that's better to go easy on fat post-workout

Well, if youre open to the option, ON has a good whey powder, as far as wonky ingredients goes.

Sorry but while your intent to eat whole eggs is laudable you can indeed eat onlynwhites and completely get the benefits.

Cool, thanks! Saw that one on Amazon, and was thinking it looked like it might be too tasty to be allowed, haha.

I bought optimum nutrition egg white protein but haven't opened it yet. They make good stuff in my opinion though.

I don't usually use protein powder, but if I do get a hankerin' for a smoothie, I'll use Jay Robb's egg protein powder because it's usually the only egg protein powder I can find. It's tasty tho, and it doesn't have any ingredients that scare the bejeezus out of me.

Tony Sfeir's "100% Naturel" is 100% egg white protein, gluten free, no additives, no preservatives.

It is purely for function because it doesn't taste fantastic, I generally add a teaspoon of pure glucose powder to it...I hadn't thought to add almond milk or coconut milk, will have to give that a try :)

I have been using Jay Robb's Vanilla egg white protein powder it tastes good (I mix it with almond milk or coconut milk). It does have Soy Lecithin in it though. One of my grocery stores sells powdered egg whites which are just dried egg whites. I just add my own flavoring to make it taste like something. Sorry I can't remember the brand right now.

The only protein powder that I have found that doesn't have soy or dairy mixed in is Olympian Labs Beef Protein powder. I have the chocolate version and I like it. It doesn't quite taste like chocolate but I don't think it is bad tasting.

I use Now Sports 100% Egg White Protein powder (unflavored) occasionally...but I don't rely on it constantly for protein. It's good, and that is the only ingredient. I think it is one of the healthiest and safest on the market.

Don't you need the egg yolk for proper assimilation. From what I have read, eggs are a superfood but it needs to digested in it's whole form.
