Optimum Nutrition 100% Egg Protein Powder Review

If you missed our article talking about the benefits of egg protein, then take a look here, and you'll see that egg protein scores 100 on biological value (contains all essential amino acids), and 1.0 on the PDCAA score. One large egg has about 6.3g protein and 5g of fat. While egg whites contain 3.6g protein, 0 fat, egg yolks contain 2.7g protein and all the fat. Because of this many athletes who eat eggs as a staple for protein source eat only the eggs whites.

Eggs and egg protein has long been a key protein source for bodybuilders. Some get all their egg protein from egg whites, some use a egg protein powder, and some (like myself), use both egg whites and egg protein powders. I actually enjoy eating egg whites - sprinkle a little salt and pepper to give a little taste, and it tastes quite good. The only thing is that egg white takes a little time too cook, peel, while with egg protein powder, you simply add water, shake it up in a shaker cup, and it's good to go.

Optimum Nutrition Egg Protein Review

I eat eggs almost daily as a snack - usually 6 egg whites and 1 egg yolk, which gives me approximately 23.8g of protein, and 4.5g of fat. You must be thinking "Wow, a yolk a day! Are ya trying to get a heart attack or something?"

Actually, no. The fat in egg yolk contains just 1.6g of saturates (the bad kind), and the rest are poly and mono saturates (the good fats). Studies have also shown that reducing saturated fat intake and increasing the ratio of poly, mono saturates will contribute more to reducing the risk of coronary heart disease as compared to reducing dietary cholesterol intake. At the same time, eating 1 whole egg a day does not contribute to increased risk of heart problems or strokes.

Aside from eating egg whites, I also take a scoop of 100% egg protein by Optimum Nutrition. So on an average day, I get about 45g of egg protein.

Optimum Nutrition Egg Protein Taste Test

The 100% egg protein from optimum is an above average tasting egg protein powder. Not as good as their 100% whey protein or pro complex, but its still quite good. Both chocolate and vanilla flavors are quite good, and easily mixed.

Like all the other protein supplements they carry, the 100% egg protein is instantized as well. With a shaker bottle, it mixes completely, and effortlessly. However I did try mixing it in a glass with a spoon - after all, it's supposed to be instantized. Well, I would strongly advise against using that method. ;-) I had a real tough time trying to get all the powder to dissolve with mix with my milk, and ended up giving up after about 5 minutes of stirring and just drank it with the left over clumps. So, just stick with the shaker bottle method (or blender), and you'll be fine.

You can get a 2lb tub of Optimum Nutrition Egg Protein online for under $35, and save some money over retail prices.
