NZProtein Egg White Protein
Egg White Powder is high biological value protein that's lactose and dairy free plus it's from free range chickens too.
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.
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.
