Try 'liquid eggs' in protein drinks

Question: I'd like to add eggs to my smoothies like bodybuilders do, but I'm worried about whether it's safe.

Answer: A fear of salmonella and other food-borne illnesses keep most people from cracking raw eggs into their protein drinks. But it's possible to get the protein-packed punch of eggs these days without any of the worry.

There are a number of liquid egg products on the market that have been screened for bacteria and are considered safe to consume without cooking.
Eggology, Papetti All White and Better n' Eggs all have been tested for both salmonella and listeria, the two most common bacteria found in eggs.

Eggology products, available online at
eggology.com, also have the advantage of keeping in the fridge for up to four months after opening, and they come in both regular and organic varieties. Powdered egg whites that mix well in smoothies are available at health-food stores.

Good news about egg whites: They're very low in calories - about 15 calories per egg - contain no cholesterol and are loaded with protein.
