I would love to find a decent tasting cheap Egg white protein powder for use in smoothies etc.

I have triend "Optimum Nutritions" before and although it is cheap it tastes pretty bad even when mixed with a lot of fruit.

I recently picke up some of the "Jay Robb" Egg white protein and that stuff tastes awesome! But at nearly $20.00 for a 1lb tub it isn't something I want to be buying every week.

So, does anyone have any suggestions on a good tasting inexpensive egg white protein powder?

Well I do eat a lot of eggs....but I'm needing a decent powdered protein for those quick shakes I make from time to time when I'm in a hurry etc.

Try the egg white protein at
http://www.proteinfactory.com

You control what you want in it in terms of taste, extra things like carbs, aminos, and how much you want. Even with shipping its cheaper than Optimum or Robb's.

I'll let you know how it tastes.
This is the first time I've ever bought egg powder but I'll try the proteinfactory.com next time.

Good tasting, cheap, egg powder.

They're all mutually exclusive no matter which way you wire them unless you use your imagination.

This stuff is the bomb.

It's tasteless when you put it into shakes and when you use them as eggs for frying - it's the closest to real egg I've ever gotten.

hone is right on - egg protein sans sweeteners tastes like ***. optimum nutrition's (with splenda) rates pretty high on the taste scale in my opinion, so if you think that tastes bad, you're in for some serious disappointment with protein powders.

ON's egg protein that Greg mentioned is the best tasting stuff I've found. Not sure what else is out there that is any better at the price.
