Egg white protein powder

Does anyone have a recommendation for egg white protein powder? I don't do well with whey and am looking for an alternative protein powder for pre/post workout shakes, etc. Thanks!

Re: Egg white protein powder

Now egg white powder. Nothing except egg whites, no fillers......but unless your doing it to save time or money, I would recommend just sticking with normal food. your going to get more out of it.

Re: Egg white protein powder

Soy protein isolate would probably be your best alternative.

Check out the chart in this article:

Are you lactose intolerant? Is that the problem with whey powders you have tried?

Quite possibly, mostly dairy makes me bloat, but doesn't cause other symptoms. I have actually tried those Lactaid pills and they don't seem to help. It bums me out because I find whey protein powder to be so convenient and versatile for shakes, but it makes me bloat horribly. And if I have one a few days in a row I can get nauseous pretty bad. Although its been several years, I had a dr. tell me I might have an allergy to casein.

What's wrong with soy in moderate amounts?
