Liquid Egg White Nutrition And Uses
Typically when people discuss the egg white versus whole egg debate they usually don’t have very different opinions. In fact, both egg whites and whole eggs already have their stereotypes, as whole eggs are seen as the proper choice for someone who is impartial, while egg whites are the choice of the person that is making an effort to eat healthier. In fact, the nutritional value of egg whites is often misunderstood, as they are an extremely valuable addition to specifically tailored egg white diets.
There are many considerations that must be made when comparing the nutrition and benefits of both whole eggs and egg whites, most importantly being why an individual chooses to consume whole eggs or egg whites. Below, Egg Whites USA, your source of liquid egg whites, will discuss some of the nutritional information regarding our liquid egg whites, some of the best uses for our product, and how our liquid egg whites stack up in comparison to whole eggs.
First Off, What Is A Liquid Egg White?
As you are likely, at least hopefully, aware — an egg is made up of two parts, the egg white, and the egg yolk. Liquid egg whites are the product of removing the yolk and pasteurization. Once the egg white is separated from the yolk and pasteurized, only the fat-free and protein-rich part of the egg remains. Here at Egg Whites USA, we pasteurize and filter our egg whites to ensure that they are safe, healthy, and delicious.
Nutrition: How Different Are They?
Yes, whole eggs and egg whites are extremely different as far as nutritional capabilities even though they come from the same product. The reasoning behind the difference in nutritional availability of egg whites and whole eggs is that whole eggs contain the nutrient-rich yellow yolk that gives eggs their trademark look.
Now you probably noticed that while we are an egg white brand that we just said that yolks are the nutrient-rich part of the egg, and we are not afraid to admit it, because the egg white itself is nutritious in a different way. While most of the vitamins and fats are found in the yolk, the majority of the protein is found in the egg white, making egg whites incredibly valuable to the person looking for pure egg white protein with no added fats.
In addition to being an excellent source of protein, liquid egg whites are also a much faster method of protein delivery than that of their whole-egg counterparts. Our liquid egg whites are 100 percent bio-available, meaning that your body can quickly and fully utilize the proteins that the liquid egg whites provide to your body. Once you have ingested the tasteless and odorless liquid egg whites, your muscle function will increase for the next four to five hours as the protein is absorbed and energy is created. Can your average whole egg do that? Yes, but not nearly as efficiently.
Are Liquid Egg Whites Safe?
When people think of liquid egg whites they usually think of them as unsafe — after all, it is an uncooked egg isn’t it? Not quite, as our Egg Whites USA products are all pasteurized in a low heat to ensure the elimination of potentially damaging bacterias.
In a raw and unpasteurized egg, there is a chance that harmful bacteria like salmonella could be present, having the potential to make you incredibly sick, as well as blocking valuable nutrients from entering your body. In order to ensure that the egg white is safe to eat, it is essential that the liquid egg whites go through the pasteurization process. While pasteurization sounds like a super high tech procedure, it is rather simple and easy to complete the procedure. In fact, you can even do it in your own home. In order for an egg white to be edible without the risk of transmitting bacteria, the egg must be warmed to 139 degrees Fahrenheit. In doing so, the egg becomes warm enough to kill the bacteria while not becoming warm enough to start cooking the egg.
Luckily, when you purchase liquid egg whites from Egg Whites USA you don't have to worry about if your liquid egg white protein is safe to consume, as it has already been pasteurized and heat treated to ensure it’s quality.
In addition to being devoid of harmful bacteria, our liquid egg whites are preservative-free. Most products that have the potential to spoil quickly are chock full of preservatives to ensure the longevity of the products shelf life. Unlike most products, our liquid egg whites do not contain preservatives but are instead 100 percent pure liquid egg whites.
Lastly, our liquid egg whites are free of all of the major allergens. Laid by all naturally fed chickens, our liquid egg whites are both Kosher approved and approved by the United States Department of Agriculture.
At Egg Whites USA we have taken all of the precautions necessary to ensure that your product is safe, healthy, and efficient in delivering a high dose of protein without any of the fats or cholesterols that usually come with it. Unlike raw egg whites, our liquid egg whites come ready to use and can be drunk or cooked without any preparation.

You Want Help Bulking At The Gym
While there are many reasons that adding egg whites to your diet can prove to be beneficial, one of the most common reasons that people do it is to help them gain muscle mass in the gym. By consuming proteins, which are made up of amino acids, you are essentially providing your muscles with the building blocks of growth. One of the most common ways that people supply their body with proteins before or after a workout is with protein powders. While protein powders are extremely affecting in supplying your muscles with ample amounts of protein, they are not as effective at delivering protein than liquid egg whites.
