Egg White Protein
What Is Egg White Protein?
Egg white protein is derived from the albumin of the egg, so it is also called albumin powder for that reason, it is the transparent portion of an uncooked egg. The albumin contains the highest concentration of protein inside the egg. Many find albumin powder unflavored in nature but some feel there is a creamy taste. It is a great addition to cooking, smoothies, meat and veggie dishes alike!
