Default Egg white powder

If you drink raw egg whites, only about 50% of the protein is absorbed.

If you cook it, you get 90%-100%.

But what about egg white protein powder?

They are dessicated egg whites,so I'm guessing 50%

Not interested in guesses.

Lots of claims from manufacturers that their egg whites are pasteurized at 134 degrees for 3.5 minutes, which causes them to be "100% bioavailable". Not sure whether to trust the marketers.

Is it just me or does it sound as BS?

I think it's BS too.

I so want it to be true.

My solution. I pour one of these cartons in a dish, microwave it until solid, and blend it with water (with chocolate casein powder for taste).



Why not just drink casein by itself? Too much calcium. I would need to drink 8 scoops per day for the next 6 months or so. Each scoop contains 44% RDA. I'm not trying to get hypercalcemia. I only got interested in egg whites to reduce calcium content.

Why not just eat your protein? I've been on RFL for a long time and I'm tired of protein options. (But not tired enough to switch to another, slower diet!)

I'm not sure, but solution to what exactly?

Are you currently running RFL and do not like all lean protein products except for egg whites?

Why not just use the egg white powder and not worry about it so much? It's not going to make or break your diet if it isn't cooked egg white. If using the powder allows you to stay sane and maintain your diet, then it seems the choice is clear.

I got tired of all lean protein products. Unless it's the occasional filet mignon or grilled chicken, I am not interested in eating it. Unappetizing and not worth the food prep.

I just want to drink my protein and not think about it. A couple times a week, I'll cook a steak or pick up a grilled chicken, that's it.

So I could take double the amount of egg white protein powder in order to get the proper amount of protein.

That would be fine, but will I still get calories from the the other half of the protein that is not used as protein? Does it just pass through my digestive system without adding any other calories?
