I know some of you do this, some of you may not, but I think it is a great way to knock out 50grams of great protein in 2 minutes.
I buy the costco brand eggwhites (6 cartons for $7). I take either crystal light or powerade zero and pour just a little inside the eggwhites. Shake real good and drink away. Taste a little like the powerade and really is pretty good.
*****Raw egg whites are undigestable, but the pasteruization process neutralizes the Avidin and kills salmonella so they are an awesome, 100% readily available source of protein for your body.
****Liquid egg whites, that are low heat pasteurized, cooks the egg whites at 134 degrees. This temperature kills any salmonella and neutralizes the Avidin enzyme without damaging the protein which allows the egg whites to be digested optimally.
Liquid Egg Whites are liquid but not raw
When you cook an egg white to the point of scrambled eggs (over 134 degrees), you begin to destroy the true value of the protein.
Drinking pasteurized egg whites is better than cooking them....but the same is not true for raw eggs
Just make sure they are pasteurized/homogenized eggwhites.

Do you feel a difference? You know, a better after-breakfast pump? Ive been considering doing this, but I mix 1 cup of whites usually with 2-3 eggs and cook. But if there is a difference in how they feel once absorbed I woldnt mind drinking them suckas

I dont feel much of a difference. I mean, sometimes for lunch, if i cant get anything, ill grab a carton of eggwhites and knock them down. I just couldnt imagine trying to scramble all those eggwhites and eat them.....especially when i can drink the whole carton in t-minus 5minutes....

Only reason neutralizing the Avadin is important is it otherwise can cause biotin deficiency. With whole eggs you get all the biotin in the yolk which counter acts this. Nothing to do with bio availability.
This whole denatured protein thing really needs to stop. Your stomach acid denatures protein, not just heating.
I have eaten raw whole eggs almost everyday my entire adult life and have never been sick. Higher risk of getting sick from raw spinach.

plus show me anywhere in the literature where they compare cooked egg whites vs pasteurized. all the data i've seen shows cooked vs raw, and pasteurized is not raw.

I know that eating 4 eggs at 1 time is hard for me to do. I used to drink them raw.but ide do 3 at the most at one time.Then ide do it again. i couldnt do a whole glass like rocky did makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck thinking about it,
It is quick and easier and you can deffinitly swollow more then you can eat ( thats sounds a little strange there lol but true..

Well I guess I'm about to dump a packet of raspberry benefiber into a carton of egg whites and chug it... yay or nay?

this is actually a pretty good idea. i used to add liquid egg whites to shakes just for fun before (wasn't even exercising at the time). i imagine it would be more cost effective long-term to purchase liquid egg whites on-line.
definitely not a bad idea though, msucurt. rather chug some egg protein than a "muscle milk'. if i want some flavor i'll throw in some flavored protein powder and shake it up!
in conclusion, are we throwing away our money by doing this (referring to bioavailability)?

Whats the cost breakdown for the 6 cartons of costco eggs for $7 bucks. How many eggs does that equal out to?
Im definitely willing to try this as a way to add some quick and easy protein, as was already said, cooking and eating 8 eggs would be more time consuming that just guzzling a carton of kirkland "real" eggs.
Also, it seems these "liquid carton" eggs have a very very long shelf life compared to actual eggs(the ones Ive seen have a few months of shelf life before expiration versus about a month with actual eggs.

each 1/4 cup is equiv to 1 egg. so I think those are 16oz each for 8 eggs each, or 48 eggs (4 doz) for the $7

If you guys are looking for liquid protein, wouldn't a protein blend be cheaper in the long run? Now I could understand if your were eating actual egg yolks along with it, but 12 scrambled egg whites is absolutely nothing in terms of eating volume. I usually keep a couple cartons of soft boiled eggs in my fridge and eat 6-8 eggs if Im on the run. I know most of you won't want that much fat in a meal, but if it fits in your diet they are awesome. I completely understand the convenience of the liquid eggs too, I buy them for omelets when ever I can get them on sale but if your just drinking them it seems like there are some better options out there.
Now if you see them at a gas station or something and your looking for a quick fix I could understand that. Im not trying to start up any arguments or anything, it just seems like there are better options out there.
Edit: I just reread the first post and 6 cartons for $7.00 bucks is a good deal on these, but Im still sticking to my story...

haha i'm glad that i'm not the only person that routinely chugs cartons of egg whites. i ran a bit of an experiment about half a year ago where i got allll of my protein from liquid egg whites for two weeks.... actually made quite a huge difference as far as vascularity goes. now i do it routinely. theres nothing like "packing a lunch", bringing it to work, then watching the looks of horror as i slam 15 oz of egg whites. yummmm
my training partner/roommate refuses to touch the stuff and won't even really eat eggs... i'd like to think that's the sole reason i'm 215lbs and he's 190lbs even though we're both the exact same height and bodyfat %. EGG WHITES FTW
