Egg whites: all brands are not the same, read the labels

All egg white are not the same. A store brand I bought has lots of additional ingredients. Another brand I found lists only egg whites as the ingredient in the carton.

One of the three nutritionists I saw after my angioplasty in 2012 recommended I eat only egg whites rather than whole eggs to avoid cholesterol in eggs. Other nutritionists disagree about this. Indeed, eggs seem to be making a comeback and I’m sure the Egg Board, which promotes their consumption, is happy that it’s PR work over the years is bearing fruit.

But I prefer to avoid eggs these days and stick to egg whites only. I’ve been buying whatever brand of packaged egg whites is on sale. But then I realized that all egg white are not the same. A store brand I bought, shown here, has lots of additional ingredients, as you can see on my photos here. Another brand I found lists only egg whites as the ingredient in the carton. So that’s the one I’m sticking with these days.It doesn’t scramble yellow like the other does, but now I know that comes from added coloring which I’d rather not have.

Check the ingredients before buying packaged egg whites. All brands are not the same.

Egg whites are its only ingredient.

This store brand has a lot in it besides egg whites.
