Low in fat, carbohydrates, and calories, this clear cushion for the yolk packs quite the protein punch. As a complete protein, egg whites naturally contain all nine essential amino acids. One of these amino acids, leucine is especially useful for both building skeletal muscle and preventing its breakdown. Virtually free of the controversial cholesterol and saturated fat found in egg yolk, this low-cal protein is free to moderate blood pressure, aid in weight loss or maintenance, and be eaten pre or post workout for increased muscle creation. Someone call Netflix. It looks like egg white is the new black.
