What is NOW Egg White Protein?

When it comes to choosing protein, egg whites can’t be beat. Also referred to as albumen, egg white is comprised of approximately 90% water and 10% protein, Unlike the yolk, it contains no fat making it an ideal source of quality protein. Egg Protein has the highest biological value because of its combination of essential amino acids and sulfur containing proteins, all of which can be used by the body for natural, healthy muscle maintenance. NOW Egg White Protein enhances the results of hard workouts.

Egg Protein for Weight Control

How Much Is Usually Taken by Dieters?

People who use a high-protein diet for weight loss typically aim to get 25–30% of their daily calories from protein; in other words, a 1,500–1,800 calorie per day diet would include 95–135 grams of protein. Most people who use egg protein to reach this goal use one or two 30-gram servings, with each serving providing about 20 grams of protein, but no one knows for sure how much is ideal. Some people who are trying to lose weight say that morning is the best time to take egg protein for appetite control during the day.

Side Effects

Eggs cause allergic reactions in some people. The symptoms of an egg allergy range from digestive upset or a mild skin rash to a life-threatening constriction of the airways. People with egg allergies should avoid all forms of egg protein.

Because raw egg protein can cause biotin deficiency, people taking egg protein supplements long term should consider supplementing with biotin. Symptoms of biotin deficiency can include skin, hair, and nail changes; loss of muscle function; and seizures.

Interactions with Supplements, Foods, & Other Compounds

Egg protein contains a compound called avidin, which interacts with biotin, a B-complex vitamin and prevents its absorption. Avidin is neutralized with heat. Unprocessed egg protein supplements may contain significant amounts of avidin and long-term use could cause a biotin deficiency.
