Pasteurization and “raw” eggs!
I will try to be thorough, take notes if necessary so you may pass this info on to others young body builders, who will undoubtedly ask this question every week from now until the end of time. This is just a summary of about 10,000 egg articles I’ve read, and about the 30th time I’ve posted the info .
Yes you can eat raw eggs/whites, but the whole eggs or carton eggs must be pasteurized (it will say so on the carton). Pasteurization is when they heat the egg/egg product enough to kill all the bacteria (including salmonella) and the protein digestion inhibitors (usually126-140 degrees). If you eat non-pasteurized eggs/egg products your body cannot utilize the protein in them due to the presence of a protein inhibitor. And while you may get salmonella from raw eggs/egg product the chances are 1 in 10,000 for regular eggs and 1 in 30,000 for free range eggs.
Avidin is a glycoprotein, which is found in raw egg whites, and blocks the uptake of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin H (Biotin) causing a vitamin deficiency (it binds to Biotin and iron making them unavailable). You must cook/pasteurize the egg white to neutralize the Avidin and allow your body to safely digest the protein and utilize all its amino acids. Cooking egg whites at high temperatures denatures some of the amino acids which makes the proteins slightly less effective (slower digesting). A soft boiled or poached egg (at 70% albumin coagulation) is digested much easier as opposed to a fried or hard boiled egg. 2 soft boiled/poached eggs spend less than 2 hours in the stomach being digested, where 2 fried/hard boiled eggs spend over 3 hours in the stomach. Although fried/hard cooked eggs are digested just as completely as soft cooked eggs, it just takes longer for them to be completely digested and assimilated.
An egg white is about 10% protein and 90% water. It’s the proteins that cause the egg white to solidify when you cook it. Egg white proteins are long chains of amino acids. In a raw egg, these proteins are curled and folded to form a compact ball. Weak bonds between amino acids hold the proteins in this shape—until you turn up the heat. When heated, the weak bonds break and the protein unfolds. Then its amino acids form weak bonds with the amino acids of other proteins, a process called coagulation. The resulting network of proteins captures water, making a soft, digestible gel.
If you keep the heat turned up too high or too long when you cook an egg, the proteins in the egg white form more and more bonds, squeezing some of the water out of the protein network and making the egg white rubbery and increasing their digestion time.
So, basically the most bioavailable and readily assimilated egg proteins are either pasteurized raw eggs/egg products or soft cooked/poached eggs that have not reached 160 degrees at which point the proteins become coagulated/denatured and take longer to be completely digested and assimilated. I hope this helps clear up some questions .
If you want to save some money you can do this at home.It is possible to pasteurize eggs at home – and easily, too! Pasteurization is simply a process of heating a food to a specific temperature for a specific amount of time – designed to kill specific bacteria. It is known that salmonella bacteria are killed at temperatures of 140 degrees in about 3 1/2 minutes (or a higher temperature in less time). If a room temperature egg is held in a bowl of warm water – say, 142 degrees to be safe – for 3 1/2 minutes, the bacteria will be killed and the protein inhibitor neutralized. It takes 5 minutes for extra large or jumbo eggs.
Place the room temperature eggs in a colander, and lower them into a pan or bowl of 142-degree water. Use an instant-read thermometer to be sure of the water temperature, and leave the thermometer in the water, to be sure that the temoerature is maintained. For medium or large eggs, leave them in the water for 3 1/2 minutes; for extra large or jumbo eggs, allow 5 minutes. Then remove the eggs, dry them, and refrigerate them, in a tightly-covered container.
Eggs begin to cook at about 160 degrees, and will be “scrambled eggs” at 180 – but if the 142 degree temperature is maintained, the result is a safe egg that will act like a raw egg in recipes and will provide a fully usable protein source.
Muscle Egg – I tried the Chocolate Egg Whites… yes chocolate!! Let me tell you, you will not know it is egg whites! The consistency is not slimy and goopy as you assume it to be. Its just like a thick shake. I pour 8oz in the morning and just pound the whole thing! I don’t even taste it going down until I stop. Once I’m finished I taste the Chocolate taste and its amazing! Sometimes I’ll sip it just to taste the chocolate more than once. Each gallon is 14 dozen egg whites thats 168 egg whites! At a little over $30 a gallon that’s a steal!
All Whites is $2.50 a pint and 10 servings, so thats $.25 an egg That’s $42 for 168 egg whites and You have to cook them, plus they are unflavored and that takes time!
With Muscle Egg you save $10 and about 10-15 minutes. Pour it in a measuring cup, drink out of the measuring cup, wash cup and walk away.
Instead, you have to spray pan with no stick spray, heat pan, pour in eggs, flavor, cook, eat, wash plate, utensil, spatula, pan and then walk away.
With eating 6 small meals a day, I rather have 2 free meals and then cook the other 4. Instead of cooking all 6!
Thanks Muscle Egg!
This stuff is amazing! Super fast 2 meals a day! My first and last! Who wants to cook eggs when you first wake up? I don’t! Who wants to cook eggs last thing before bed? I don’t!
Thanks Muscle Egg!
I have noticed a difference in my body in the last 2 weeks I have been drinking Muscle Egg, I’m leaning out more in the midsection and I’m packing on more muscle!
Buy this stuff! Make it a staple in your diet! Just like grilled Chicken! I promise you won’t go wrong! Unless you are allergic to egg and you drop dead! (Don’t drop dead)
Stay tuned for a Mint Brownie Muscle Egg review coming in December! I can’t wait!

Just had Mint Brownie and it’s my favorite by far! It tastes like a melted Girl Scout thin mint cookie!
Muscle Egg has helped me drop over 30lbs since I started using it in conjunction with my diet and supplement regimen! More importantly it has helped me out on muscle while dieting! Which is almost impossible to do! I am coming back from a slap repair of my rt shoulder and while dieting for a year, my shoulder has doubled in size in one years time! While dropping my waist (at the illiac crest which for me is an inch above the belly button right at the point where my lats start to flare out.) before my Injury: I measured 36-37″, and after I went to 50″ and now down to 38″; so I have 15-18 more lbs to go to reach my goal!
Together with muscle egg, a healthy diet and my supplement regimen I will hit my goal!
For those of you that don’t like Sucralose (Splenda) Muscle Egg is researching alternative sweeteners and constantly evolving!
I brought up Erythritol, I also suggested a few new flavors! Keep your eye Muscle Egg and keep it in your belly! Let’s keep this company in business forever! I can’t imagine my life without it! I love Muscle Egg!
