Greatest source of pure protein you can get. I use this in my morning Blueberry, wheat bran, oat bran, almond butter and Hood Chocolate Milk smoothie. Try this for a great breakfast: 1 cup Hood (Brand) Chocolate Milk, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 scoop of Now Egg Protein Powder, 1 heaping table spoon of Almond butter, 1 scoop Wheat Bran, 1 Scoop Oat Bran, 1 Scoop Benefiber and 1/2 cup water to thin it out. Put in a blender for a great Breakfast Smoothie.
I've been using this product for almost a year. I use it in smoothies as well as added to my oatmeal for extra protein on days where I want something warm in the morning. It dissolves great and doesn't interfere with the flavor of my oatmeal at all, and I don't taste it in my smoothies either. It can get thick so you need extra hot water for oatmeal, but once mixed, the texture is almost the same. I love this protein powder, above all because it only has one ingredient - no extra flavorings, sweeteners, etc. Perfect for a clean eating nutrition plan.
I have used NOW Unflavored Egg White protein powder for several years now. I buy it from Netrition because they have the best price I have found. The reviews that say it does not blend well without some sort of blender are correct...I have tried blending it into a coffee drink with a frother, but that didn't turn out well on many levels, lol. What i do use it for is my daily protein shake. I mix a frozen banana, coconut milk (frozen but defrosted enough to scoop it out of the container), unsweetened cocoa powder, this powder and sometimes peanut butter and some icewater to blend in my nutriNinja. There is no grit, the frozen banana makes it thick and creamy, and it's almost like a chocolate milkshake.
This review is specific to Egg White Protein Powder, Unflavored
I have been using this powder every morning for 10 years in a smoothie for my breakfast. Its the best and purest protein powder i have found. You do need to use a blender or wand of some sort to mix it or it will clump. So don't plan on just mixing it in milk or some other liquid with a spoon or fork. I like the plain because you can add to it and make it any flavor you want.
NOW makes great products. I had been using the Calcium Caseinate Protein Powder before it was discontinued and needed to find an alternative for adding protein to my smoothies. The egg protein is very high quality and is completely tasteless when mixed into smoothies.
If you blend the smoothie too long however it will cause the egg to froth a little, but much less than you would experience with a whey protein.
Although the old calcium caseinate powder was ideal for smoothies, the NOW Egg Protein is a very good alternative. It is also probably a better quality protein as well.
This egg white powder is excellent. I use it in daily smoothies. It dissolves easily and tastes great. It is a great way to get a lot of protein in your diet without having to rely on soy products-which are not that great for you. The price on Netrition is excellent, too.
I've used Now Eggwhite Protein powder in my breakfast
shake for over 2 years now. It's a great source of protein
that complements the whey and soy protein powders I
use. I've never had a problem with this product and it
has a long shelf life.
