Best egg protein powder I have used, hands down!

Like many others that have turned to egg protein powder, I have digestion issues with whey protein so I've had to experiment with alternatives. I have tried 3 egg protein powders and this Vitol option has been the best of the bunch by far! That fact was reinforced this week when I ran out and the local store I usually buy from was out of stock. So I went online to research other options available in stores and came across the Healthy N Fit brand, which is extremely close in ingredients to the Vitol powder. Both use only natural ingredients and have digestive enzymes to aid digestion. The Vitol brand happens to has bee pollen, though, which HnF didn't have. Unfortunately the similarities ended there for me. While the Vitol powder mixes easily in a shaker & tastes truly amazing both in water & milk (with no weird flavor notes or aftertaste), the HnF wouldn't shake smooth for me at all and in fact would glob up, adhere to the shaker grate, and just generally make a mess. I could deal with that I guess, but the taste is miserable to me and I dread drinking it even when I blend it with bananas & peanut butter. Yuck! And on top of that Vitol costs less per serving. I will note that I have also tried Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard egg protein powder and I would rate that above HnF but below Vitol. It tastes good and mixes well, but has artificial ingredients.

BAD taste AND mixability!

Posted on Mar 12, 2012

I also don't know how anyone can stand the taste of this product...in a word - YUCK! It also doesn't mix very wel. There are other, much better options out there imho. I have digestion issues with whey protein so I've had to experiment with alternatives. I have tried 3 egg protein powders and this HnF option has been the worst of the bunch by far! I actually am extremely happy with the one I have been using recently (Vitol 100% egg protein), but I ran out and the local store was out of stock. So I went online to research other options and came across the HnF brand, which is extremely close in ingredients to the Vitol powder. Both use only natural ingredients and have digestive enzymes to aid digestion. The Vitol brand happens to have bee pollen as well, though, which is supposed to be a great natural super food. Unfortunately the similarities ended there for me. While the Vitol powder mixes easily in a shaker & tastes truly amazing both in water & milk (with no weird flavor notes or aftertaste), the HnF wouldn't shake smooth for me at all and in fact would glob up, adhere to the shaker grate, and just generally make a mess. I could deal with that I guess, but the taste is miserable to me and I dread drinking it even when I blend it with bananas & peanut butter. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Oh, and Vitol costs less per serving as well. I have also tried Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard egg protein powder and I would rate that above HnF too. It tastes good and mixes well, but has artificial ingredients.
