100% Egg Protein Overview
We've all seen the serious body builders chug down a glass of raw eggs for a protein boost. If that doesn't sound appetizing to you, Optimum Nutrition has an alternative for you: 100% Egg Protein. One serving of this has the protein and nutrients of 7 egg whites. Aminogen, a patented enzyme, is included to maximize your protein absorption. While Aminogen is supporting lean body mass, strength and deep muscle recovery, it also reduces the side effects that protein sometimes causes, gas and bloating, etc.
The benefits aren't limited to a huge amount of easily digested protein. 100% Egg Protein provides Essential Amino Acids, the amino acids that your body needs but can't make on its own. It also has Branched Chain Amino Acids, BCAA's, which your body uses to build skeletal muscle and in protein synthesis. Finally, there's Glutamic acid to aid cellular metabolism and give you even more muscle building power. Additionally there is no lactose, sugar, or saturated fats. Now you can see why bodybuilders like raw eggs, and be grateful you don’t need to.
100% Egg Protein Description from Optimum Nutrition
The True Strength of Egg Protein
Nutritionists commonly refer to eggs as the "gold standard" for protein quality because they're very easily digested and contain generous amounts of all the essential amino acids. Eggs are much more "forgiving" to active adults who have trouble with dairy foods or milk based protein powders. Our Gold Standard 100% Egg takes the benefits a step further by significantly lowering the fat and cholesterol found in whole eggs. Each scoop of Gold Standard 100% Egg packs almost as much protein as 7 large egg whites with just 4 grams of carbs. By instantizing the powder for easy mixing, we may have elevated our egg to "platinum" status.

That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one scoop to a glass filled 6-8 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
