In response to the negative reviews and complaints about the taste etc: This is not a "protein powder" product. It's dried egg whites and nothing else. Unfortunately, the product description fails to explicitly state this. No flavoring. No sweetener. Adding this alone to liquid will *not* make a tasty drink. It doesn't mix so well using anything less than a blender. I use it as a supplement in smoothies and it works perfectly for that.

Love this product. I tried it because Dr Perricone says egg white protein is the best. Mixes well - I use it in smoothies, yogurt and oatmeal, and have baked pizza crust with it. There's no strong flavor so smoothies taste great. Easy way to get a protein boost if you want to eat less meat. Low fat too!

As stated...

- this product smells very much like eggs
- it doesn't blend well with a spoon or fork. A mixer is definitely needed
- it has super high salt content, so much so that if drank straight you can taste the salt if added to water alone

After my initial test with water (not recommended) I decided to use this in shakes with berries and almond milk or half/half+water and/or a little vanilla extract. And maybe a little honey or agave. Most other protein powders I just add water. This though is not flavored protein powder. It is straight egg protein. If you don't know the difference you will probably freak out on this product.

This is egg protein, not a flavored protein powder. There is a difference. That difference is the reason I ordered in the first place -- no unhealthy additives and near 100% protein assimilation. Whey proteins max out at 40%, or less. Means you excrete most whey protein into the toilet, not used by the body. Egg protein is a better buy for actual protein usage. Whey protein absorbs into the muscles faster though. Whey may be more suited for post-workout recovery. Which type of protein you go with is a trade off between fast uptake and least waste. Some studies show for max muscle gains you need to replace protein in muscles w/i an hour of training. No clue how fast egg protein is used when added to a carb source. Hopefully meets the one hour requirement. Whey does, especially when mixed with a carb source like maltodextrin (available via Amazon too). I've not found any studies yet that show egg protein works as quickly as whey for post-workout recovery. I hope so.

As far as mixing goes, I've also used this as an omelette mix - makes nice fluffy whipped omelettes if whipped with a hand mixer.

My mother has increasingly less ability to consume/swallow liquids. Adding this pure egg white product to her nutritional supplements helps provide better nutrition for her. There are absolutely no additives or preservatives listed in the contents.

I use this product for cooking my gluten free bread. This is so handy because now I don't have to buy extra eggs, get them to room temperature, separate them, and then try to figure out what to use the yolks for. Now, I can scoop out the exact amount I need at room temp and my recipe comes out great. Sure I could buy the dehydrated egg whites marketed for cooking, but they are much more expensive and come in smaller amounts. So, this works out very economically and convenient for baking.

I just got this and just made my first smoothie this morning so I can't provide a lot of feedback but I will tell you my initial impression. I'm trying to stay away from dairy and that includes the whey protein I normally use in my smoothie so I'm trying this as a replacement for that. I was a little concerned about the eggwhite protein powder due to the mentions of a bad taste. I just made a smoothie with mixed fruit (peaches, strawberries, grapes, mango, pineapple), spinach, water, and the eggwhite protein. The smoothie tastes good and I don't detect any bad aftertaste and the taste itself tastes just like I would expect a smoothie like that to taste like. I guess that means that the powder doesn't add to the taste and doesn't take away from the taste. That's exactly what I wanted. I can't speak for how this protein powder tastes when mixed with just water but I'll probably never do that. I usually make a smoothie after a workout or a couple hours before I play soccer so I'll be interested to see how this makes me feel for soccer but as far as taste goes I give this product a thumbs up.

Hope this helps,
Kevin

I wanted a source of protein that would be easy to cook and with the essential amino acids. Egg White Powder fits the requirement. I also use
powdered milk to make milk for coffee and use at home. I read about some
products of egg white powder that did not have a good taste. I tried a few
of them and this is the best. Trick is to take the amount of powder, I use
1/4 of a cup and put it through a sieve into some bottled water into which
I added some salt or salt substitute, some pepper, and soy sauce. Use a beater to dissolve it into the liquid, let it sit about 2 minutes, and fry it in some safflower oil. A 1/4 of a cup of this powder is equivalent to
6 eggs. There is no mess, clean up is quick. The company suggests adding 1/4 cup of the powder to 12 oz. of milk and drinking it. Cooking it is no
problem for me. I figured one pound of this Egg White is the same as
144 eggs, so the price is very good for that protein.
