What is Egg Protein?
Egg Protein 80 from The Protein Works™ is a high protein source made from 100% pure egg whites. Egg protein is inherently low in fat and carbohydrates and has an excellent amino acid profile. It’s often the preferred choice of protein for athletes wanting a protein source that’s absorbed at a steady rate during the day. This is because whilst Whey Protein 80 is rapidly absorbed and ideal post workout and Milk Protein 85 (casein based) is slowly absorbed and ideal before bed. Egg protein has a moderate absorption rate, is absorbed over 3-4 hours and so is perfect for during the day.
What Are The Benefits of Egg Protein?
Egg protein is also lactose free making it ideal for anyone with a lactose intolerance. Plus it has a great amino acid profile which is of huge importance for athletes that have a lactose intolerance, since often it’s hard to find protein source that has a amino acid profile similar to that of the more commonly used Whey Protein 80.
How Can You Use Egg Protein?
Egg protein is also used as a base ingredient to add to other single source proteins to make a blend. For example many experts recommend a whey protein and egg protein blend during the day to create a quick to moderate absorbing protein meal replacement shake. Others may recommend a casein protein and egg protein blend before bed to provide a moderate to slow absorbing protein shake before bed. Ultimately using Egg White Protein 80 like this ensures you not only create a shake with a tapered release of protein but it also supply’s the muscles with a more varied array of aminos which is excellent for muscle growth and repair.

The Expert's View of Egg Protein
"The International Olympic Committee Consensus on Sports Nutrition states to support a strength or speed based workout routine athletes require 1.7grams of protein per kg of bodyweight per day. Interestingly research conducted at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada later found that endurance athletes require a greater (or equal) intake of protein than strength athletes to prevent protein catabolism during exercise."

Q. What is Egg White Protein?

Q. What does Egg White Protein taste like?
A. It has a less appealing taste compared to that of whey protein so ideal to add to blends to boost protein levels.

A. It is recommended that you consume between 2-3 servings per day, dependent upon your own personal needs. A serving would be classed as 30g (one scoop) of Egg White Protein. It is recommended that you take 1g of protein per pound of body weight, so adjust your intake accordingly.
Q. Why do I need to take protein?
A. Consuming a protein shake can help promote muscle growth since it's been widely researched that as a nutrient it helps your muscles repair and regrow after intense exercise or a workout.
Q. Is all Egg White Protein the same, regardless of which brand it is?
A. As a customer, we believe it is not only your right to demand the best, but also that you know you're getting the best. It is very true to say that not all proteins are created equal! We are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide a Product Profile, Protein Insight and Product Testing for this product. If you don't buy from TPW™, we would urge you to demand this information from your current supplier. Simple as that!
Q. How can I tell if the Egg White Protein powder I use is a good quality?
A. Key signs to look for are the level of protein declared on the label, and what is declared on the Certificate of Analysis.
Q. Does your flavoured Egg White Protein contain artificial flavouring and colouring?
A. We like to keep things pure! You won't have to worry about finding any artificial colours or flavours in any TPW™ products. That's not just marketing talk, that's a promise!
Q. What does "dry basis" and "as-is" mean when talking about protein content?
A. When you see a protein powder that states on the label the protein "dry basis' values, it means that the moisture present in the powder is included in the total protein value. Moisture in dry protein powders are typically around 4%. As whey prices have seen significant price increases over recent years due to the large demand in the sports nutrition sector, some brands may not give you all the facts in regards to the true level of protein in your powders, in order to save themselves money, and mislead you in believing you are getting something you are not! Here at TPW™ we believe in the truth! So when choosing your Egg White Protein, look at the "AS IS" level of protein in the product, something we always declare. This will give the true accurate value of what you are actually getting per serving. TPW™ believe in giving you the full facts and total transparency on all our products, so you have 100% peace of mind and a guarantee that you are getting what you pay for!
