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 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.
