Eggs any style:
"I like to use a variety of top quality protein sources, because of the different amino acid profile each individual protein source possesses. I want to cover my amino acid needs thoroughly. Therefore, I add a scoop of this high quality Eggwhite Protein from NOW Foods to my Swanson Ultra Grass-Fed Whey Protein cocktail to broaden its amino acid spectrum. The Eggwhite Protein powder has very little taste to speak of, and it mixes into my drink just fine. . . . Nice and user-friendly. Down the hatch, and it's over easy.
I get outstanding results from my Whey and Eggwhite combo High Protein Super Cocktail. - - - - Really excellent, noticeable results in the form of feeling satisfied, having unbounded energy that lasts throughout the entire day, being strong with plenty of stamina, and improvements in muscularity.
Personally, I believe in having variety in the top quality protein foods in my diet, as well as having variety in the top quality sources of my protein supplements. For example, I like to include Natural, Organic Fertile Eggs from uncaged chickens in my diet, and I like to include this NOW Foods Eggwhite Protein Powder in my daily High Protein cocktail. It fits in very nicely whether I use pure water or Almond Milk as a base."
I give NOW Foods' Eggwhite Protein Powder a very strong recommendation. Works for me!!

Now eggwhite protein is pasteurized, and is not a complete protein. It lacks the essential amino acid tryptophan. Apparently, tryptophan is destroyed during pasteurization. At any rate, tryptophan is not listed in the amino acid profile on the container. A person relying on this as a main source of protein could develop a tryptophan deficiency, affecting mood and sleep. Other types of protein powder do list tryptophan in their amino acid profiles. I used this product for years before I realized my mistake. I had assumed this product was of course a complete protein, being eggwhite, which is recommended by the World Health Organization, and is a complete protein when raw or moderately cooked. Maybe that explains the lower price. Please check out what I say by reading product labels and searching on the Internet. I wish NOW Foods would make a statement about this. I use a lot of their products.

I want something, no artifcial sweetners, all natural, low carb and high protein and no Whey and I found it. not much flavor but once I add my fruit no big deal, it mixes well. I will continue to buy this product

This product is perfect for the morning protein smoothie -- I'm allergic to dairy and soy, so this egg white protein makes my day. Just be sure to blend it on the smoothie setting for a few minutes.

better options available
Very disappointing. Wish I had read the other reviews that panned it's mix-ability. I've had others that mixed well via spoon alone; this does not: clumps and sticks to cup or water bottle (even if shaken vigorously). I'd steer clear of this product

This stuff does not mix well.
It just sits in the liquid.
I will not buy it again.
I bought it since it was low carb.
The taste isn't great but I put stevia in to

Love this product!
This is a great ingredient to add to a shake if you use a blender. I have a bullet blender and there are no lumps. I especially like it because there are no other added ingredients, just egg whites.
I've reordered this product a number of times because you can used it in shakes or baking - there is no added flavors, which can be offensive.

I use this protein all the time for my breakfast shakes. It's simple no other additives, and a geeat value. You can use as eggwhites for recipes, too.

The problem may be with me, rather than the product. I bought it to help supplement a slightly lower protein shake for a weight loss regimen. Unfortunately, I can't tell if it works because I can't get it mixed. I've drunk a couple of lumpy shakes, but it wasn't easy! There is no good way to sprinkle a 1/4 cup of powered egg white in a shaker bottle and get it to dissolve. A blender would probably work all right, but I really wouldn't want to drag one of those to work.
It'll probably work much better used for cooking than as a protein supplement.

Good, but not as expected
These work great to blend into something with a blending device; however, they do not blend well with a spoon or even a shaker. I had bought them hoping to be able to use them as a shake while traveling, but they do not blend well at all in that fashion. Just fyi. :)

great substitute for raw egg
Since I afraid to use raw egg whites in no-cooking recipes I substitute them with this egg protein powder. Using it in muffins and cookies recipes increases the amount of protein without sacrificing a flavor.

Great shake mix!
I needed to switch from a soy based protien mix and tried some rice mixes that were nasty (gave them away). This mix completly dissolves so there is no grit. There isn't much flavor at all so you can fix berries or any thing else you like. All this and a good price. Wish I would have tried this before!

I Am Excited about this Product!
I am pleased that you have added this product. I use it daily for smoothies, my dessert and cookies that I make. I even put it in my cooked cereal for more protein. I will be placing a special order to obtain more of it.
