Sweetened with Xylitol.
Function: Egg protein is the best option for those who can't handle the lactose in whey protein. It's still an animal product-based protein, so it provides all nine essential amino acids at once. But the fact that it's from egg whites means it's lower in fat and calories than whey protein powder.
Nutritional Value: With this protein powder, you get a whopping 24 grams of protein per serving, along with 4 grams of carbs. It's made with non-GMO ingredients, and is 100% free of sugar, fillers, artificial ingredients, dairy, lactose, hormones, and chemicals. It's as natural as it gets for egg protein!
Features: This protein is easily digested (egg whites always are), so it's ideal for both pre- and post-workout protein shakes. It can deliver the energy you need to get through your workout or provide the amino acids needed for recovery.
Some users dislike the "artificial" sweetness of the protein, but that comes from Xylitol and Stevia rather than chemical sweeteners. The protein is filling, tasty, and mixes easily with any liquid--even water!
Price: At $43 for just 21 servings (24 ounces), this is one of the priciest protein powders on our list. However, its delicious flavor and excellent nutritional profile makes it a good option if you don't mind spending a bit more.
