Egg White Protein Powder NZ

Egg White Powder is high biological value protein that's lactose and dairy free.

The whites contain most of the protein in the egg, with no fat or cholesterol. They also typically contain less calories than other protein sources.

Egg white powder is made by separating whites from yolks and drying them into a powder. The powder is then pasteurised so it's safe to drink from salmonella and the avidin protein. This process is done at a high heat which is beneficial also as it has been shown to increase digestibility of egg protein.

With the water removed 1kg of egg white powder contains the whites from about 260 medium sized eggs, meaning this product is very economical.

It's from free range chickens too.

Benefits

Egg white protein is highly digestible. It digests slower than whey but faster than casein. It sits somewhere in the middle and provides a time released protein supply, so could be a good shake to have after a workout or during the day.

Egg white powder has a protein level of around 80%, which is similar to whey, casein and pea - but not all proteins are created equal.

Egg white protein contains all 21 amino acids required to support essential metabolic function, making it a good source of protein to assist muscle repair and development. It contains all nine essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids that the body cannot produce and must be supplied from the foods we consume.

Egg white is high in branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), containing more than 19 grams per 100 grams.

It's high in L-Leucine too, containing over 9 grams per 100 grams which is higher than whey. Leucine is one of three BCAAs and is primarily involved in muscle protein synthesis for muscle growth and recovery. It also contributes to the regulation of blood-sugar levels, growth hormone production and wound healing.

  • Pasteurised so it’s safe to drink
  • Economical – 1kg contains the whites from about 260 medium sized eggs
  • Complete source of protein & contains all essential amino acids
  • High in BCAAs and L-Leucine for muscle development
  • Slower digesting (provides a time released protein supply)
  • Lactose & dairy free
  • Low in fat & carbohydrates so typically has less calories per gram than other protein powders
  • From free range chickens

High Biological Value

Biological value is a measure of how much ingested protein is actually used by the body. Egg protein scores 100 on this scale. In fact, egg protein is so bioavailable that it represents the BV against which all other foods are compared.

The Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) measures the ‘completeness’ a protein, where a value of 1.00 on the scale is the highest measure. Not surprisingly egg protein scores the highest 1.00 which is the same as milk based proteins and higher than beef and non-animal protein sources.

Protein digestibility is a measure of the proportion of protein that is absorbed by the body. Egg white protein scores 97% on this scale.

Egg White Protein Shake

Flavoured egg white mixes better in a protein shake than natural but it is recommended to add liquid before the powder in a shaker. Vanilla mixes with virtually no foam/lumps if shaken well and left to settle for a minute.

We have samples of our flavoured egg white here.

Unflavoured tastes like natural egg whites but it is easy to overcome this when made into a smoothie with fruit etc.

Egg White Protein Pancakes

Egg white is often used to make protein pancakes and there are a heap of recipes that can be found online for these.

You could make some yourself, or you could try our pancake mix - which is already mixed and just needs water.

Our pancake mix has egg white protein it and also casein, oats, coconut flour, and other key ingredients designed to make the best pancakes.

Egg White Protein Side Effects

Eggs are generally well tolerated and allergies seem to mostly affect children under five years old, who grow out of them. However, those with allergies to eggs should avoid this product.

Raw egg whites contain the protein avidin, which can bind to biotin and stop its absorption when consumed in large quantities. Egg white powder is pasteurised, rendering avidin inactivate.

Our Verdict

Egg white protein is a very good source of digestible protein and is virtually fat free. It has a powerful amino acid profile that's suited to muscle development.

Egg white is the best replacement to have if avoiding whey or as a shake during the day to provide a slower release of amino acids.

This is great product! I am so happy to find out this tasty and versatile product, especially for the people have Lactose problems. The chocolate chip cookie recipe goes well with Egg White Protein and GF is a bonus!!

Quite sweet, which I like. Great alternatively to dairy.

good product
Review by: karen on Tue, Aug 17, 2021 9:06 AM
Mixes easily enough with almond/coconut milk/water.
I purchased unflavored for the lower sugar content, while it is palatable I add a chocolate stevia drinking chocolate mix to it and I barely taste the protein. I have tried the vanilla and would recommend that if you want a powder you don't want to add anything too.
Review by: Nico on Thu, Aug 5, 2021 1:10 PM
Vanilla . Good quality and taste mixes easily . Very fast delivery. Good to see an outfit with their act together.Thanks.
Review by: Steve on Mon, Aug 2, 2021 2:12 PM
Great clean protein product, recommend mixing in blender as not so good in shaker (tends to lump) through in some frozen fruit and nuts/seeds and you're pumped.
Review by: Peter on Fri, Jul 30, 2021 8:16 AM
Excellent product. Love using it in my afternoon smoothie.💞🌸💞

This is excellent for making Maria Emmerich's protein sparing modified fast bread. A 1kg bag makes many loaves so is great value for money.
Review by: Jo on Tue, Jun 15, 2021 12:59 PM
Quite eggy but thats what it is, so go figure :)

Needs a decent blender/mixer, and foams up a lot. I use it in baking and it works great.
Review by: Micah on Mon, Jun 14, 2021 8:21 PM
I haven't used Egg Protein before and bought it to use primarily in baked goods. It didn't mix as well as I had hoped but this might be the norm for this type of protein but I'd still buy it again - the taste and texture were good.

Awesome protein source

I'm very happy with the egg white protein. The bags seal very well too, which is so important for this product. Delivery time was exceptionally good too!
Review by: Merle on Tue, Mar 2, 2021 7:18 AM
The egg white protein is great if you have a super sensitive stomach like I do, it didn't upset it at all. It blends up nice and smooth, with no lumps. Taste is ok, can add fruit to make it better. Would be great if it came in a chocolate flavour. Will buy again.
Review by: Jenna on Sun, Feb 7, 2021 8:01 AM
Same day delivery and got just what I expected. Unflavoured is pretty unpleasant and a little clumpy just with water, but stomachable. Works brilliantly for smoothies and recipes with only a faint taste remaining. Good whey alternative.
Review by: Paul on Thu, Jan 21, 2021 9:22 PM
Great tasting protein powder. Easy on the stomach.

Great alternative to dairy. Mixed with fruit etc in a smoothie with blender or similar is the way to go.
Review by: Andrew on Mon, Dec 28, 2020 1:18 PM
Didn’t really come with any instructions as such as to how to substitute this for normal eggs in recipes as egg whites are meant to be better for you. I noted the carb content of these is extremely high for what it’s meant to be. Overall I probably won’t purchase again.
Review by: Billie on Wed, Dec 16, 2020 9:50 AM
Wow, don’t know if we got a bad batch but this protein powder smells horrendous and tastes even worse.

Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Nov 17, 2020 8:53 AM
Vanilla flavored proteins don't taste of egg. Overall they are a good replacement to whey, taste is a bit less good (but not at all bad as read in some comments) and they are only slightly harder to solubilize. I recommend them as an alternative.

Taste is quite good. Thanks
Review by: Nicky on Tue, Jul 28, 2020 9:19 AM
Delivery was too late received product in 5 days, however, egg protein taste is excellent in comparison with other egg proteins but mixability with water is not that good there were small granules left in the water. Pea protein, chocolate and berry flavors are okay not too hard to drink. overall a good product I have tried other egg proteins which i was unable to drink it.
Review by: Shaan on Sat, Jul 25, 2020 4:46 PM
Was kindly given a second batch because it was thought my product was the wrong ingredients. sadly the unflavoured egg white powder tastes the same as it did the first time - absolutely disgusting with water, difficult to mix (even if you add water first) and extremely foul taste.
Review by: Daniel on Sun, Jul 19, 2020 11:55 AM
It expands with water, sort of strange but I’ve never had egg white protein before so have nothing to compare it with. I’ll have to hide it in other foods.
Review by: Hazelle on Fri, Jul 17, 2020 5:58 PM
Amazing delivery- I ordered it last night and it arrived today. I use this mostly for making pancakes with banana and oats and it’s the best product for this, whey protein falls apart. It does have a bit of a funny smell but I don’t notice it once cooked up. Don’t expect this to be like a normal whey protein powder that you’d make up a shake with just on its own, but it’s great for adding to smoothies. The vanilla has an overly strong and artificially sweet taste- the unflavoured is much better.
Review by: Anita on Wed, Jul 15, 2020 3:37 PM
tastes ok mixes well
Review by: Karina on Sun, Jul 12, 2020 8:49 AM
Lovvve this protein. Haven’t found a good dairy free alternative as they’re usually really grainy. But this tastes amazing. Not far off from whey protein. Recommend
Review by: Katie on Mon, Jul 6, 2020 7:55 AM
Great product, tastes good in my smoothies but haven't had it as just a shake. I mix my smoothies with water only and it mixes well. If I use the full serving size there is a faint egg taste/smell but nothing that has put me off. Gentle on my tummy which is a must for me.
Postage is super quick.
Review by: Shona on Fri, Jun 19, 2020 7:21 AM
Don't know if I got a bad batch or something but the most disgusting tasting powder I've ever tried. Practically inedible! Gourmet vanilla flavour - no resemblance to vanilla here. Tastes like goldfish food, well like how fish food smells. Taste overpowers any other flavour I add to try and disguise it. Will not buy again. Very dissatisfied.
Review by: Nathan on Mon, Apr 20, 2020 1:43 PM
I find it totally satisfactory for my diet
Review by: Anonymous on Fri, Apr 17, 2020 8:42 PM
Agree with the below - clumps like chalk, doesn't blend like any of the other powders I've used. I've got the vanilla flavour and it does clump badly. Also as per the previous advice from NZ Protein, I do always add water first, and have tried shaking multiple times, leaving to sit and same result each time. SUPER ANNOYING because otherwise this protein would be ideal. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we have a new egg white since your purchase. This new egg mixes a bit better, is free range, and the price is slightly less!
Review by: Hannah on Fri, Apr 17, 2020 11:16 AM
Clumps like crazy. Trying every method I can but always ending up with massive clums. NZPROTEIN REPLY: add water to the shaker before the powder. Sometimes giving it a good shake then letting it sit for a minute before giving it another shake works well. But water before the powder will help - this can be the nature of egg white protein. The vanilla flavour is better at mixing.

Taste is ok, but it way to sweet for me, its like a mouth full of candy

This would be perfect if the egg whites could be sourced from free range chickens!
Review by: Cameron on Tue, Jan 12, 2016 12:47 PM
Tastes alright (vanilla) but its way too foamy. I know that just how eggs are but itd be nice if you could somehow minimize the foamyness.
