I'll admit it. I like egg whites ... plain, scrambled egg whites. I got really into eating them a few years back when I discovered that one white only has 15 calories and is still a significant protein source. I don't, however, like cracking open egg after egg, separating the whites. I inevitably end up making a big mess, plus I feel guilty for wasting all those yolks. I have no idea why I haven't purchased Egg Beaters before, but I finally got with the program and decided to try Egg Beaters 100% Egg Whites.
I coated a small pan with non-stick spray and poured in ½ cup of the whites. Like eggs, the whites cooked up very quickly and actually came out fluffier then when I hand-separated them from whole eggs. I also noticed that the Egg Beaters didn't stick to the pan nearly as bad as whites normally do. As for taste, let's face it ... egg whites is a bit of an acquired taste. Still, they were good as far as egg whites go and had a nice firm texture to them. My favorite thing about these is there are none of those stringy white membranes thingies that you get in whole eggs.
The 32 ounce carton contains 20 servings which equals the volume of one whole egg with 5 grams of protein, 25 calories, no fat or cholesterol. I paid $5.99 at Wal-Mart for the carton which I think is pretty good considering you're getting about 4 cups of whites, besides avoiding the hassle, mess and waste of not dealing with whole eggs.
Other than the 5 grams of protein per serving, these don't have much else in the way of nutritional value but can be easily jazzed up with some veggies, salsa or maybe some cheese. Paired with a slice of whole grain bread and/or some fruit and these handy dandy egg whites are a quick, nutritious and low calorie start to any day.
