What's the difference between Egg Whites International and Raw egg whites?
The human body cannot completely and safely digest a raw egg white. So, if you like to do the "Rocky Routine" with a raw egg or raw egg white in your drink, you are wasting your time, not to mention the threat of Salmonella. Avidin, a substance found in raw egg whites, blocks the uptake of the Biotin vitamin, causing a vitamin deficiency. You must cook the egg white to neutralize the Avidin and allow your body to safely digest the protein and utilize all of its Amino Acids. Egg Whites International is cooked through low heat pasteurization, allowing them to be kept in a liquid state, but not raw. The low heat pasteurization process kills salmonella and neutralizes the Avidin to allow the egg white to be completely digested safely by the human body.
How much protein should you consume in a day?
The average "Active" person requires approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of "Lean" body weight per day. Bodybuilders can take in 2 to 3 time that amount a day, while a non-active elderly person might only need half that amount. Protein is the building block for muscle growth, as well as the battle against body fat. Egg Whites International is the perfect source of protein, from Gastric bypass and Chemotherapy patients, kids to world class athletes, bodybuilders, and everyone in between.
What is the best way to use Egg Whites International?
In a drink! No matter what you mix them with, you can't taste the egg whites. They have been filtered to have a deliciously smooth texture. Basically, we removed the slimy part. They will make a fluffy omelet, but cooking them burns off part of the protein. Can't get enough protein in your kids? Mix 1/2 cup liquid egg whites with 1/2 cup of milk over your kids cereal, or add it to chocolate milk. They have No Clue. Add it to Iced coffee for a Protein Packed On-The-Go breakfast. Use as the liquid when making salad dressing. You now have a high protein salad with No Meat. Use your imagination, or see our website recipe page.
How often do you use Egg Whites International?
Twice a day! First thing in the morning, and right before bedtime. You can use more, but this is when you are closest to your refrigerator. Most people only eat 2 to 3 times a day. Athletes eat 6 to 8 times a day. The trick to losing weight and having more energy, is keeping your metabolism up with protein working in your body all day. Sure, you can lose weight by eating one meal a day a starving the rest of the day. But the weight you are losing is muscle. The more protein you take in,the more muscle you rebuild. The more muscle your build, the morefat you burn. You won't look like a bodybuilder unless you workout like one. But, you will look toned, healthy, and have more energy.
Why take Egg Whites International before bedtime?
Fitness enthusiasts have known for decades that if you don't put protein into your body before you go to bed, your body will run out of protein in the middle of the night. Once your body digests all of its available protein, your body thinks it is starving itself. To protect you, your body shuts down and starts storing your fat cells. Your blood sugar still needs protein to keep you going, so it starts consuming the only protein source available, your own muscle mass. Basically, you are storing fat and eating muscle. By drinking a high protein drink with our liquid egg whites just before you go to bed, they will support muscle growth for up to 4 to 5 hours. NOW, the process is reversed for most of the sleep time. Rather than storing fat and eating muscle, the protein from the liquid egg whites, is allowing your body to burn the fat at its normal rate while building the muscle. You will get a better nights sleep, and wake up more refreshed in the morning. This has also helped people with sleeping disorders and children with night terrors, to get a good nights sleep. See website testimonial page.
Want to save money on your Protein Powders?
Just use half as much protein powder mixed with one cup of our liquid egg whites in place of water or milk. It will taste the same. Egg Whites International is 100% Bio-available for up to 4 to 5 hours of muscle support. Protein Powders are NOT 100% Bio-available, and most only support muscle for 2 to 3 hours. So, by mixing an 8oz cup of our liquid egg whites with only half the recommended serving of powder, you are getting about 30% more protein to help muscle, for up to 2 hours longer muscle support. Twice as many servings out of your powder, saving you money!
What Are Egg Whites?
Egg whites are exactly that, 100% pure liquid egg whites, just as if you cracked and separated them yourself at home. The only thing we did was to pasteurize them to avoid salmonella. There are no additives or preservatives, no artificial ingredients or food colorings. Egg whites have a naturally light yellow color to them. You will notice this more in the bottle than in the frying pan. The white substance floating on top of the bottles is the same white particle you see when you put an egg in the frying pan. This connects from the egg white to the egg yolk. We leave this in the egg whites because it has the highest concentration of protein in the egg. Just shake up the bottle before using. Egg whites are completely tasteless and odorless.
How Can Egg Whites Be Used?
They can be prepared and eaten the same way you eat eggs today. You can use them in baking and making pancakes or whatever you would normally use eggs for now. However, due to the heat pasteurization process, we do not recommend them for meringues or angel food cake. They do make great omelets and scrambled eggs. Because the yolk is gone, so is the fat and the cholesterol. Therefore, the eggs tend to be fluffier and healthier without the yolk. They also make great smoothies and protein shakes, thanks to the pasteurization process that has eliminated the salmonella threat from drinking raw egg whites. See our Recipes page for more great ideas.
How Do I Measure Egg Whites?
3 tbsp of Egg Whites = 1 whole egg
2 tbsp of Egg Whites = 1 Egg White
1/2 cup of Egg Whites = 4-5 Egg Whites
Is It Safe to Freeze Egg Whites?
Absolutely! You can even put a previously opened, partially used container of Egg Whites in the freezer. They will last indefinitely while frozen. To defrost, put the container on a paper plate and leave it overnight. Once defrosted, you must keep them in the refrigerator. When Egg Whites freeze, the water separates from the egg and settles on top. Therefore, it may be necessary to Shake the bottle well before using. If the eggs tend to cook up watery, simply blend in a blender for a few seconds, or pour back and forth into another container to assure that the water mixes back into the egg. For gallon containers, you nay need to pour back and forth into a larger pitcher. We do not recommend that you re-freeze the Egg Whites if it's not necessary.
What Is the "Shelf Life" of Egg Whites?
Laboratory tests have shown that our 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites, if maintained at 39 degrees or lower in the refrigerator, stay good for up to 3 to 4 months, even when opened. However, we recommend that you use them in 1 to 2 months to assure the best quality product. If you freeze them, they will last indefinitely. To determine if they are good or not, the best test is to smell them. If there is any sour odor, discard them. Egg Whites have no odor or taste.
What Is The Protein Benefit of Egg Whites?
Egg White protein is the purest form of protein known to man in the entire world. Each 8-ounce cup gives you 26 grams of pure protein, only 2 grams of carbohydrates, NO fat and NO cholesterol. They are 100% bio-available, which means NONE of it's amino acids are wasted. No artificial protein powder can make that claim. Other high protein sourced foods and supplements need to be broken down before the body absorbs the protein. All natural products have always been the recommended way to get the nutrients your body needs.
How Are Egg Whites Separated?
The eggs are washed and placed onto a conveyor. The conveyor then cracks the eggs, drops them into a tray with holes in it. The tray catches the yolks but allows the Egg Whites to fall through the holes to another tray below. A quality control person is there to clean out any broken yolks that might fall through with the whites. There is also a USDA Inspector that oversees the entire process to ensure consumer safety.
What Is Salmonella?
More than 90% of all eggs are free of contamination at the time they are laid. Contamination with Salmonella bacteria and with certain spoilage organisms occurs essentially afterward. Proper washing and sanitizing of eggs eliminates most Salmonella and spoilage organisms deposited on the shell. Furthermore, our egg whites are pasteurized and 100% safe.
How Do You Pasteurize Egg Whites?
The Egg Whites are run through a series of heated tubes, almost like a big still, just hot enough to kill bacteria but not enough to cook the eggs. They are then tested for any signs of Salmonella bacteria.
What Happens To The Rest Of The Egg?
The yolks are sold to various companies that produce salad dressings, ice cream, mayo, etc. The egg shells are sold to various companies that include them in pet food as a calcium supplement.
