Egg whites are one of the highest-quality proteins available. They have a protein content >80% (equivalent to whey concentrate), and contain zero sugar. One kilogram of egg white (albumin) protein requires 250 egg shells.
Egg white protein is easily digestible, making it an ideal alternative for people who cannot tolerate milk proteins.
Egg albumin contains all nine essential aminos and the branched-chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine, which are critical for muscle protein synthesis and therefore muscle growth. Research shows that egg white protein has similar effects on stimulating muscle development as whey.
Arginine is also present in high amounts in egg white protein. Arginine boosts nitric-oxide (NO) production in the body, which dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow to muscles. This helps deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, promoting muscle recovery and greater muscle growth. Arginine also increases levels of growth hormone.
Egg whites contain other beneficial components such as sulfur, which is vital for the body’s hormone-producing pathways.
Lifematrix Egg White Protein Powder is manufactured in France from free-range eggs using a simple and clean production process: after separating the egg white from the yolk, the liquid is spray dried and pasteurised without the use of any chemicals. The powder has a mild, neutral flavour and can be blended with water or dairy or cereal/nut milks, or added to smoothies.
As with all Lifematrix protein powders, our Egg White Protein Powder is unsweetened. It’s available in 200g and 350g pouches.
The Lifematrix protein range consists of: Raw Vegan Protein (from sprouted brown rice), Yellow Pea Protein, Pea & Hemp Protein, Colostrum, Purple Protein (hydrolyzed bovine collagen with blueberry extract), Whey Isolate and Free Range Egg White Protein.
