Protein from Eggs
If you are allergic to eggs or they are hard for you to digest .. read this page!!
If you are lactose intolerant … here is a protein for you
Many protein shakes get their protein from eggs, because they are cheap and provide a complete protein.
Eggs have two parts, the yolk and the white. Cholesterol is in the yolk and lecithin is in the white. The Lecithin in the white helps to breakdown the cholesterol in the yolk.
- The protein used in shakes comes from the white. The egg protein in the white is called albumen. First the sugar in the egg white is removed and what is left is air dried, flaked and sold as protein powder.
- This makes a very high quality protein that contains all the essential amino acids.
Eggs hard to digest?
If eggs give you indigestion or you are allergic to them, you should know that many protein powders have eggs in them.
- However, most powders do have enzymes to help you digest the eggs. Sometimes they help and sometimes they don't. ( Take it from the voice of experience! )
- One of the enzymes most often used comes from papaya. You will see it listed as papain on the labels of protein bottles using egg protein.
- You also can just buy bottles of papaya to keep around to help with indigestion. You chew them and they taste great! So don't get carried away and eat too many as if they were candy …. you will only need 2-3! Too many can cause diarrhea.
- Some add an enzyme called Bromelain that comes from Pineapple , which also helps with digestion.
- And some add Lecithin to help digest any remaining cholesterol that might be in the protein.
Allergic to Eggs?
If you are allergic to eggs you may want to avoid that protein completely, but if you still want to try it be very careful. Take it easy at first, maybe use less than the recommended serving until you know how your body will react!
Some Good Choices for Egg Proteins.
Some bodybuilders want only egg proteins ….so here are some good choices …several have enzymes, papya and/ or bromelain added for digestion .. One is a liquid protein! .
Remember you have to look at the bottom of the label to see what proteins are used …. all protein powders are this way!!!

Nutritionists commonly refer to eggs as the "golden standard" for protein quality. Eggs contain all eight essential amino acids (the type that your body cannot make from other substances) and very high levels of total amino acids – especially important sulfur-containing aminos. Eggs are also readily digested and absorbed. As a lactose-free protein source, eggs are often more tolerable to people who have trouble with dairy foods. For these and other reasons, eggs have been a staple of bodybuilder's diets since the beginning of the sport.
Each scoop of Gold Standard 100% Egg packs as contains the nutritional equivalent of seven egg whites with just 2-44 grams of carbs (depending on flavor). It provides a complete profile of essential Amino Acids, Branched Chain Amino Acids and Glutamic Acid.

The First, The Original, Best Selling. 100% Egg Protein. Advanced dietary supplement. Since we originated Healthy 'N Fit 100% Egg Protein, no one has introduced a higher quality, more effective muscle building protein.
The protein efficiency ratio (p.e.r.) is a renowned, proven scientific method which determines the quality of protein and how it affects growth. Healthy 'N Fit, 100% Egg Protein has a higher P.E.R. (3.9 or greater) than any other protein available anywhere.
Net protein utilization (n.p.u) is also a proven scientific method which determines what percentage of the protein we ingest can actually be used for growth. Healthy 'N Fit; 100% Egg Protein has a higher N.P.U. than any other protein available anywhere.
Egg Protein is considered the most nearly perfect source of protein because its amino acid pattern most nearly matches that needed for human growth. A protein's chemical score is based on amino acid composition. The mixture of proteins found in egg has proven to be the best quality for growth and, hence, received a rating of 100 for comparison with other proteins as compared below.
