muscle egg - who's tried it?
How is it? How's it cook?
I've tried samples. Tastes amazing
I've only drank the shit never cooked w it. Delicious and easy to get down, just pricey.
$30 for 16 servings at 25g protein a serving I think. I guess it's cheaper than store bought egg whites. Things are $4-5 for 20ish servings of 3 grams protein.
Egg whites at Costco come in a 6 pk of the smaller 50g protein ones for $7-8. That's my shit, I see Wunderpus gets the same pack.
Sams might have the same thing. Not a Costco up in this place.
I've had the mint chocolate. Never cooked it, just drank it with mint chocolate protein powder. Taste was damn good. Price sucks ass, definitely not cheaper than egg whites in a carton from Sam's. I got mine from Complete Nutrition. I believe if you order from Muscle Egg the shipping is insane.
My favorite mom and pop supplement shop gave me a freebie to try of muscle egg. I liked it! Not worth the price tho
Sams sells a six pack of egg whites for under $10. Now thats a deal. No it wont taste like chocolate but hey...
Yeah I got a free half gallon. But it's pumpkin spice. Fuck it. I'll try it.
probably still bomb
Get the six pack of egg whites at Sam's add in a splash of your favorite flavor sugar free creamer and booom ! Taste just like muscle eggs with out the huge mark up ! Its pretty good actually!
Never thought of that
I get a 1kg carton of egg whites from the grocery store for 4 bucks. Not so bad. Add it to my oats and whey shake and I don't even need to blend the shake, just shake it up and it doesn't taste eggy at all.
Never heard of muscle eggs till today though. looks interesting. But yeah, a bit pricey.
I buy the costco 6 pack too, each carton is 50g protein. Past few days been mixing ~8-9oz egg whites with a scoop of bcaas and add ice + water and just drink it. So much easier than cooking them and save having to wash dishes. Could also add some flavored stevia drops.
Is there any new info on the whole bioavailability of the egg protein if not cooked thing that was around like 5 years ago?
The only thing is was able to dig up was a study conducted in 1998 by the American society for nutritional services the basically stated that when consuming raw eggs more than 50% isn't absorbed efficiently over a 24 hour period , as opposed to around a 91% absorption rate of cooked eggs , also don't quote me on this but I believe the study was on egg whites and not whole eggs . Do you know what the study was that was only a few years ago id be interested to look it up and give it a read ? But in general everything I find on the subject suggest cooked eggs absorb at a much higher rate than raw , it interesting though !
Egg whites bought in the carton are typically pasteurized, not raw so they behave as if they are cooked. True raw egg whites you crack out of a shell yourself would not be good to just drink.
Yeah i kinda shit the bed on that one , and posted before taking a little more time to look into a little better ! Your right though pasteurization kills off bacteria and protein digestive inhibitors. .. Avidin(glycoprotein) is found in raw egg whites , and blocks uptake of b6 and biotin causing vitamin deficiency ( it binds to the biotin and iron making them unavailable )... when you cook or pasteurize egg whites it neutralizes the Avidin allowing the body to digest the protien and use the amino acids. But just a side note to that as well cooking eggs at high temps also denatures some of the amino acids making them slightly less effective . So something like poached or soft boiled is probably better than say , scrambled or hard boiled ... but im just assuming with the amount of egg whites most of us are eating the difference is probably negligible. So after all that being said what is the most effective way to eat your eggs , who fucking knows , drink em (pasteurized ) poach em , fry em your basically gonna get the same result lol !
