    Has anyone tried pasteurized liquid egg whites? How do they taste? Are they worth the expense?

    I drink egg whites every morning. One and half cups equals eight egg whites. I mix it with a cup of orange juice and it tastes great.

    I like them, and they're convenient. I mix them with 2-3 whole eggs, so I don't know if they have a different taste on their own.

    They are alright but would be a huge disappointment if you're comparing them to fresh farm eggs.
    They are total equivalents for use in baking cakes, scramble well in the microwave, but I've never succeeded in making a real omelet with them.
    I'll continue using them for quickly available protein.

    I'm sure they are fine... But I'm kinda doubtful of non whole foods. I may b wrong, paranoid or both, but it seems like they are probably processed or fake to some degree. Eggs r supposed to come in shells and contain a yoke. It's the same reason y I avoid protein shakes and bars unless I'm low on real food and haven't gone shopping yet. Same thing with carrots over carrot sticks.

    Liquid egg whites have a strange texture to them... not really the same as an actual egg white. When using them to cook, they don't firm up with the same consistency. If, like me, you're someone who is picky about textures, you probably won't like how liquid egg whites perform.

    I think Larkin hit the nail on its head. Liquid eggs that come in a carton just don't look natural or have the same consistency as eggs that come in a shell. I've been to cheap ass restaurants where their eggs are made from a carton... some of the most disgusting shit I have ever seen or tasted. It looks like someone puked up a yellow-colored meal, for real.

    Buy some real eggs and an egg white separator. Put the yolks in a separate, sealable container. Maybe even put them in a food saver bag and seal that up air tight. Of course don't let them waste and rot -- I always use them within 48 hours anyways.

    I guess I'll never understand people's obsession with over-processed and highly unnatural egg products.
    I'll stick to "real" eggs (cage free and organic) thank you very much. icon_biggrin.gif

    I add liquid egg whites to my protein shakes. Can't taste them at all, I can't even tell they are there.

    I have a friend that was terrified of doing this due to the ick factor of raw egg. So I just spiked his shake a few times without telling him. He didn't even know they were there. Now he is hooked.

    You can get this at Whole Foods, egg whites only in a carton. Also most stores carry Horizon organic egg whites. So have your cake and eat it too icon_lol.gif

    Jumbo cage-free eggs from a local farm for me. ;)

    Yep, every morning at 5am, I eat 4 egg whites (carton) and 2 from the shell. It was a bitch storing all the eggs and cracking them all. Then all the egg yolk that I had to get rid of! This makes a great omelet or scramble. Lots of protein without the hassle. You can't tell the difference. There is no way I would drink either shelled or carton, eek.

    I like Nulaid brand better than Egg Beaters or the like and they use cage-free eggs but I have since read that -- unless you have a cholesterol problem -- you should not avoid egg yolks altogether. I sometimes combine Nulaid with whole eggs with veggies, mushrooms and cheese for an omelet or frittata.
