🔹Eggs are one of the best sources of high-quality protein.
🔹Compared to all whole foods, eggs have the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS)
🔹This score measures a protein’s quality and digestibility.
🔹Eggs also decrease appetite and helps you stay full for longer.
🔹The protein quality remains excellent but you might experience less fullness because egg protein powders are typically made from egg whites rather than whole eggs.
🔹Eggs are a complete protein source, which means they have all nine essential amino acids that your body can’t make itself.
🔹Egg protein is ranked second to whey as the highest source of leucine, which is the BCAA that plays the biggest role in muscle health.
🔹The only downfall is that egg-white protein hasn’t been studied as much as whey or casein.
🔹Egg-white protein is definitely a good choice for people that have dairy allergies who prefer a supplement based on animal protein.
