    Okay, so I'm seeing that egg protein supplements are becoming more prominent. I have a very practical question: Have any of you tried them, and (to be frank) are they as/less/more likely to cause gas that wilts plants and kills small children?

    I have used JayRobb's egg white and whey protein interchangeably and have not detected a noticeable difference in, er, output.

    It may be the yolk that causes it... are there whole-egg powders out there?

    I've tried and haven't a difference... at least not in that respect.

    Given that I've no allergies or sensitivities to egg or whey based proteins, I've not noticed any measurable differences in the area of gas. However, it does seem to have more to do with the quantity of protein ingested at one time than the type. Regardless of which you use, if you don't chug the entire glass at once, you reduce the incidence of toxic fumes.

    As to other differences, egg (white) protein is more balanced in the amino acids it provides as well as being more effectively and quickly absorbed into your system than whey protein. I can't remember the advantage that whey has (though I know it does have some.)

    Personally, I mix both proteins so that one gets absorbed fast and the other more slowly. I just make the shake last an hour rather than 2 minutes and that seems to have a positive effect on the atmospheric environment around me.

    I haven't tried them. I think it depends on the individual. Some people have a hard time digesting egg proteins, and it results in gas. Same with whey protein. I suggest trying the smallest tub of egg protein they sell, and see how your body reacts.

    i am thinking of trying egg protein considering whey always bloats me up in a very unpleasant way.

    Isn't egg protein slower acting casein protein, so you should take whey protein during the day and egg at bedtime?

    Or to really complicate matters, egg (casein) at bedtime, beef protein powder (Carnivore brand, for example) post workout and whey protein the rest of the time?

    I use egg protein now because I'm lactose intolerant. The gas that I get from it is ridiculous (yes it's worse than whey), but at least I don't have diarrhea anymore icon_confused.gif
