Egg shortage? Not at NZProtein. We stock egg white protein powder and it’s a great source of protein. For those who are wondering “why would you want a protein powder made from egg whites?”, keep reading! This product comes with a plethora of benefits and is perfect if you’re lactose intolerant, dairy free or just wanting to change things up.
How It’s Made
This product is made from egg albumen (derived from the Latin word albus meaning “white”). Unlike the yolk, albumen is very low in fat and cholesterol which makes it the perfect ingredient for a protein powder. The manufacturing process entails the separation, filtration and pasteurisation of eggs. These steps ensure the remaining powdered product is free from shells, impurities and any potential bacteria. You can trust that it’s safe to drink and of a very high quality. We also add sunflower lecithin, sucralose and flavouring to the powder to ensure it tastes great and mixes well. The ingredient list is relatively short because why include unnecessary additives if you can go without?
High Quality Protein
One of the primary benefits of egg white protein is the quality. It is a complete protein, containing all nine of the essential amino acids your body needs to function. Your body can’t produce every amino acid endogenously so it’s vital we consume some through diet. Egg white protein powder is incredibly bioavailable. This means it is easy for your body to absorb. If you’re keen to put on some muscle (which everyone should), this product is perfect. It will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to repair tissue and make gains. It’s not just about working hard in the gym. You have to give your body high quality fuel so that it can replenish itself.
Lactose & Dairy Free
Not everyone can digest whey or casein easily. One of the perks of egg white protein powder is that it is completely dairy free. Although there are a range of allergen free protein powders on the market, few are as nutrient dense and versatile as this one. As noted above, egg white protein contains all nine essential amino acids and is proven to be particularly beneficial for those wanting to put on muscle. The issue with many dairy free proteins is that they are missing some amino acids or are not easy to digest. You won’t have to worry about this if you get egg white. Unfortunately, this product won’t suit vegans or anyone with egg allergies. However for the general population or anyone who wants to swap out some dairy, this powder is a fantastic choice.
Goes Great In Baking
We recommend blending up your protein and drinking as a shake but why stop there? There are so many delicious recipes you can try instead. Egg albumen has incredible foaming properties which is why it gets used in desserts like meringue. Egg white protein powder can be used to make healthy treats like cookies, pancakes and even low carb burger buns. Dessert lovers will be stoked to read this. Reducing your calorie intake or improving your diet doesn’t mean you have to give up breads and desserts. Just find healthier alternatives instead! Take advantage of the egg white foaming properties and get creative in the kitchen. Once you try some NZProtein recipes, you won’t even miss the original high calorie versions.
In addition to its versatility and lack of lactose, egg white protein is also low in calories and cholesterol free. If you wish to lose body fat, you must reduce your caloric intake. Egg white protein powder is therefore a brilliant option for those on a fat loss diet. A single scoop will have you feeling full and it contains next to no carbohydrates or fats. Egg white protein is also ideal for diabetics and anyone following a ketogenic way of eating. It is incredibly economical and there is no reason why you can’t consume it on a daily basis. Try adding egg white protein powder to your current regime. We are certain it will become a staple in no time.
Egg whites aren’t just for meringues. They can be made into a high quality, bioavailable protein powder that tastes delicious and goes great in recipes. Don’t just take our word for it. Try it for yourself. NZProtein egg white powder comes in small sizes too. If you’re apprehensive about buying a big bag, grab a $3 sample instead. You don’t have to be lactose intolerant or dairy free to enjoy this product. Anyone can reap the benefits of egg whitey goodness. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
