    Kirkland Egg Starts


    When it comes to egg substitutes, I've tried everything under the sun. Egg replacer, egg beaters, easy-eggs, etc. Nothing compares to these.

    I know a huge number of you guys already know about these and eat these on a regular basis. This is for the people who may not know about Kirkland egg starts; if you do, feel free to comment here about them as well.



    Kirkland Signature Egg Starts are a healthy non-yolk alternative to plain eggs. Extremely high in protein, with no cholesterol or fat, it's a great food that you can eat a lot of and not feel guilty.

    There are 8 servings in a carton, which means if you down a carton a day you're looking at:

    48 grams of protein
    240 calories
    8 grams of carbs

    BUT- How does it taste?


    I gotta be honest, I can't tell the difference. Best tasting egg product available. I could eat them plain and not wince like many other egg products make me do.

    Normal Egg Behavior?

    These things act exactly like real eggs do. They fluff up really well. The only thing is if you want to make a killer omelette then you should put a cover on your pan so that the center wont be liquidy when you flip. EASILY microwaveable and freezeable.

    Available at all Costco and Sam's Club stores nationwide!

    Never tried those. However, I have tried 100% Egg Whites by International. Pretty much the same nutrition read out as the one you posted. They are essentially tasteless. I used to add them to protein drinks. Plus they are 100% Bio-Available.

    The downside to them was they came in a big tub. It was pretty messy measuring them. However, now they have a pump you can get and it works MUCH better.

    Approximately $7 for a carton of six. Each carton is 8 servings. I have everyone every night before I go to bed. Good stuff.

    There's no fat in these, e.g. there are no yolks. Egg yolks are a source of Arachidonic Acid.

    Kirkland
    1.30/carton for ~48g protein.

    EggwhitesIntl
    132(shipped) for 4 gallons = 33 gallon
    1 gallon = 128oz = 8 Cartons.
    $33 / 8 cartons = 4.13/Carton

    As to the value versus other sources of protein you are not exactly comparing apples-to-apples if you try comparing it to the value you get by buying bulk powder.

    ATW isolate is ~8.50/lb (shipped with discount) when bought at a similar size.
    16 servings @25g protein/serving means we get about 8 servings/lb.
    8.50/8 = 1.07 for the equivalent amount of protein. So it is about a quarter more per carton, or 12 cents per normal 8oz serving.

    I don't think I want my omelette made with powder so I will probably continue to pay the extra 12 cents/day

    Gordon foods has the best deal on egg whites hands down. God ,I miss the midwest! 30lbs for $18 or something awesome like that. That was a couple years back though, might be more expensive now.

    Eat regular eggs, or the ones that have extra omega 3's. Regular Eggs are yummy. Just don't eat them everyday.

    Those costco egg white cartons are great. They make life easy because 1 carton gives you 48 grams. I tried drinking it and it's not that bad either as long as you don't chug it.

    Yeah, I used to have them special order things for me, such as the egg whites. 30lbs of egg whites last a long time, and they used to be really cheap. I would give them a call and see what they can do. I actually prefer their egg whites to kirklands because kirklands have added spices and a bit of an odd smell. GFS is nice as it is open to the general public as well, so no membership overhead. I haven't really tried anything else from there.

    Worth 30 minutes round trip? Depends if you can pick up anything else there. Perhaps they have a good deal on bulk oats or pre-cooked chicken as well, not sure. I would give it a shot.

    Don't buy EggWhitesInternational or Lana's Egg whites. Its a rip off. I did the math they are way overpriced compared to your local eggwhite cartons which are the same thing.
    Costco's Kirkland EggStarts are much cheaper than the store versions. I believe they are half as cheap as the store, and 1/4 of the LAna's & EWI
