How is Egg White Powder made?
Our Egg White Powder is made by spray-drying egg whites. The spray-drying process works by feeding the egg whites into a big drum through what is called an atomizer. This atomizer pretty much does as the name suggests. It sprays the liquid as a fine mist into the drying chamber, where a hot gas quickly evaporates the moisture. The now dried egg white particles are pumped with the gas into a collection drum. The gas is then pumped out and the remaining egg white is collected into bags. For a more in-depth explanation, here is a helpful video from YouTube. Introduction to Spray Drying.

This logic can be extended to adults who want to lose weight as well. Protein-rich egg whites are thus a good fuel source to start your day. Feeling fuller for longer means less snacking on unhealthy foods. It also means you are on the right track for weight loss.

Muscle recovery time is a big deal for exercise enthusiasts. After all, the faster your body recovers from an intense workout, the faster you can get back to it. An amino acid called Leucine reduces muscle recovery time. Besides helping in muscle recovery, Leucine also helps with muscle building. Egg white powder contains the second highest amount of Leucine.
