How is MuscleEgg made?
MuscleEgg is made right here in the MuscleEgg facilities. We harvest shell eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. We then add flavor to our flavored egg whites and bottle, freeze, store, and ship MuscleEgg fresh to your door. Obviously, no flavor is added to our original or organic egg whites. Get a glimpse of how MuscleEgg is made.
Wait...so you own a farm? Are the animals cared for properly?
We are insanely concerned about the life and health of our hens. They are free-range hens and their health and diet is constantly monitored to ensure that our care for them measures up to the highest standards.
What do you do with the egg yolks and shells?
The yolks are sent off for use in ice creams, dressings, etc… The shells are distributed locally and used in fertilizers.
Is MuscleEgg REAL eggs? What’s it made of?
100% real liquid egg whites. MuscleEgg is the same thing as if you cracked your own eggs and separated the whites from the yolks. No substitutes or powders here. The big differences are that we pasteurize the egg whites to kill any bacterium and, of course we add flavor to our flavored egg whites.
So, is it like a supplement or something?
MuscleEgg is a whole food product, not a supplement.
How much protein is in MuscleEgg?
Each serving of MuscleEgg contains 25-26 grams of protein. You can view more about our egg whites nutritional info here. Egg whites are the best natural source of protein out there!
How much MuscleEgg protein is actually absorbed in my body?
MuscleEgg egg whites are 100% bioavailability. Your body will absorb and use all of the protein contained in MuscleEgg egg whites so that none is wasted. Learn more about protein bioavailability in MuscleEgg.
How much fat is in MuscleEgg?
MuscleEgg egg whites are a fat free food. No need to worry about that here! You can view nutritional labels on each product page or view them all on our egg whites nutritionals page.
How much sugar is in MuscleEgg egg whites?
Our original and organic egg whites have no sugar at all. Our flavors are lightly sweetened with no more than 1 or 2 grams of sweeteners, such as dextrose, per serving. View exact nutritional data and labels for each product here.
Do MuscleEgg egg whites contain cholesterol?
No. MuscleEgg does not have any cholesterol.
How many calories are in MuscleEgg egg whites?
A single serving of MuscleEgg egg whites will have low calories, generally only 130-140.
What does bioavailability mean?
Bioavailability refers to how well your body can absorb and utilize nutrients you consume. Other sources of protein, such as powders, are great, but even the best of them are only 70% bioavailable. Head over to our page explaining protein bioavailability in egg whites for more information.
How much protein do I need daily?
That’s a loaded question that depends on how active you are, your size and what your goals are. According to various studies on this topic, your optimum intake may vary between 0.4 grams of protein (per pound of body weight) for inactive people who are otherwise healthy to 1.2+ grams of protein (per pound of body weight) for people actively building muscle. If you are trying to build muscle, you will need more protein to repair muscle tissue. If you’re trying to lose weight, protein helps you feel full longer because it digests more slowly than carbs and fat. It can also give a boost to your metabolism and is ideal to help you shed fat while maintaining lean muscle mass. Athletes and pregnant women also need more protein than the average person. Regardless of your goals, protein is important for everyone because "it has its hands in every critical function of the body," according to Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Get more information here if you’ve ever asked yourself, “How much protein do I need?”
Will egg whites help me lose weight?
Egg whites can definitely be an integral part in helping you lose weight and are popular in many weight loss programs. Protein from egg whites will help you feel full and satiated longer, increase metabolism, decrease appetite, and help you maintain lean muscle mass while shedding weight. Of course, you’ll want to check with your dietician/nutritionist to make sure you’re dieting properly.
Is MuscleEgg raw eggs?
No. There is a difference between raw egg whites and pasteurized egg whites. MuscleEgg egg whites are double pasteurized for safety and smoothness. Eggs you crack yourself tend to not have a great texture for drinking. Our egg whites are pasteurized and filtered to be as smooth as chocolate milk.
What’s the difference between raw and pasteurized liquid egg whites?
We're glad you asked! Our egg whites are double pasteurized to kill bacterium, such as e. coli and salmonella. This also helps to create a much smoother consistency that’s easy to drink. Raw egg whites are susceptible to these things that can make you sick.
Are MuscleEgg liquid egg whites USDA approved?
Yes! MuscleEgg egg whites are made in our very own state-of-the-art USDA regulated facility. Every process, all of our facilities and equipment, and each individual batch of liquid egg whites we make is inspected and certified by both the full-time on-site USDA inspectors AND also sent to an outside third party inspection company to ensure that you are receiving the best quality egg whites possible.
Is MuscleEgg safe to drink straight out of the jug?
Absolutely! In fact, that’s why we created our different flavors of egg whites! We want MuscleEgg to be easy, tasty and convenient.
I have an egg allergy. Will MuscleEgg be OK for me to consume?
No. MuscleEgg is 100% egg whites. If you have an egg allergy, you consume MuscleEgg at your own risk.
I'm allergic to gluten, dairy, and/or soy. Can I still have MuscleEgg?
Absolutely. MuscleEgg does not contain any dairy, gluten or soy.
Is MuscleEgg egg whites kosher?
How should I store MuscleEgg?Because MuscleEgg is perishable, you’ll want to always store it in the fridge or freezer. You can keep it frozen for up to a year until you’re ready to open a jug. Once it has been opened and/or unfrozen we recommend storing in a fridge below 38 degrees. It will stay good in the fridge for 3-4 weeks giving you plenty of time to use it. In order to ensure a smooth consistency, we recommend NOT to re-freeze MuscleEgg.
How long does MuscleEgg stay good?
MuscleEgg is made fresh every week and because it’s a whole food, it is perishable. You can keep it frozen for up to a year and it’ll still be good. Once thawed, you can keep it fresh in the fridge for another 20 days or so. Keep in mind that in order to maintain a smooth consistency and freshness we do not recommend to re-freeze MuscleEgg egg whites after it has already thawed.
What’s the best way to thaw MuscleEgg?
The best way to thaw it is in the fridge. This can take a few days depending on the temperature of your fridge. To quick thaw, you can leave it out on the counter in 4 hour increments till it’s thawed. Every four hours shake it up and put it in the fridge for an hour. Repeat as necessary. The quickest method is to put it in the sink with cold water and let it thaw completely there. We don’t recommend leaving it out for more than 4-6 hours at a time. After it has thawed completely, make sure you don’t leave it out for more than an hour.
Why does MuscleEgg come in those jugs?
We’ve had our jugs custom designed to make MuscleEgg easy to store in as small of space as possible. We paid attention to every detail from the imprinted MuscleEgg logo on the jug to the sealed off handles so you don’t get egg whites drying up in the handle.
What does it taste like?
MuscleEgg is smooth and easy to drink and/or cook. The original and organic don’t really taste like anything making them perfect to use in recipes for shakes, omelets, scrambles or anything you want to use egg whites in. We also carry 8 different flavors – chocolate, chocolate caramel, cake batter, vanilla, strawberry, mint brownie, key lime pie (seasonal)and pumpkin spice (seasonal). All flavors are amazing and can be used for drinking straight out of the jug or incorporating into recipes. If you didn’t know better, you wouldn’t even know you were drinking egg whites.
What’s the best way to use MuscleEgg egg whites?
That all depends on your personal preference! You can drink a glass of MuscleEgg egg whites in the morning as part of breakfast, any time you want a tasty snack, or right before bed to help you feel full throughout the night and curb late night snack cravings. You can also cook it and incorporate it into any recipe.
