Rich Piana’s Egg White Crystals: 5% Nutrition’s “Protein Powder”

5% Real Food Egg White Crystal

Real Food Egg White Crystals are Rich Piana and 5% Nutrition’s unique real food version of a protein powder.

If you’ve been following Rich Piana and his supplement 5% Nutrition for any length of time, you know the both Rich and 5% are incredibly passionate about consuming whole foods each and every day. You’ve also probably picked up on the fact that old Rich isn’t exactly the biggest proponent of protein powders.

This puts some Rich Piana followers in a bit of a quandary… you need to eat enough protein, but there’s just not enough time in the day to always eat a whole food meal, and you don’t want to consume any protein powder.

Rich and Co. have solved this dilemma with the release of Real Food Egg White Crystals – Rich Piana’s alternative to a Protein “Powder”.

We’ve written about his carb supplements – Rich Piana’s REAL FOOD and REAL FOOD Rice, so what can he do on the protein front?

Real Food Egg White Crystals

5% Real Food Egg White Crystal Ingredients

Real Food Egg White Crystals are made from nothing but pure “gently” evaporated egg whites.

You read that right, each tub of Real Food Egg White Crystals are made of REAL, actual eggs whites. The only thing missing is the water which has been “gently evaporated” from the egg whites as part of the manufacturing process.

When you’re ready to mix up your egg whites to cook up a delicious scramble or for a quick protein shake, simply add water and the crystals turn into light and fluffy eggs in a pan on the stove or in a bowl in the microwave!

To further show his commitment to quality of food, Rich and 5% Nutrition have sourced these egg whites from chickens that are Vegetarian-fed and free of any and all hormones or antibiotics.

Better than Protein Powder?

5% Nutrition Egg White Chart

Eggs are often termed “nature’s perfect protein” due to its high bioavailability and utilization by the body.

You may be wondering how this is any different from a whey protein powder in terms of quality. Well, the big difference here is that these egg white crystals haven’t been subjected to the high heat during manufacturing that whey protein powders are. The egg crystals have simply been “gently” evaporated to remove the water.

Therefore, the egg white crystals should not be denatured or potentially damaged by ultra-high heat like whey and casein proteins typically are.

Is this really a big deal?

Well, probably not considering the fact that you’ll eventually heat the egg whites to cook them, and that in and of itself will denature some of the peptide bonds holding the proteins together. But, Real Food Egg White Crystals start off in a more “wholesome, natural” form compared to whey protein for what it’s worth.

Mike’s Review

Mike had a chance to try out the new egg white crystal powder from Rich and 5%. Long story short, they perform incredibly well, so much so, that, in Mike’s opinion, they actually taste better than the pasteurized egg whites you get in a carton in the store!

Flavors Available

As you would expect Real Food Egg White Crystals come in regular egg white “flavor” but 5% Nutrition has also released a chocolate flavor of the egg white crystals for those that just want a quick hit of protein without having to cook a pan of egg whites.

5% Real Food Egg White Crystal Available

Real Food Egg White Crystals are available NOW in two flavors: plain and chocolate

Side note, we don’t really recommend cooking the chocolate egg whites, unless you like chocolate tasting eggs…

Which one to choose?

The one to get really depends on how you want to use them. If you plan on cooking or baking with them, then get the unflavored variety. But if you want to make egg protein shakes, then get the chocolate!


Each serving of Real Food Egg White Crystals consists of 5 scoops of egg white crystals that totals 27g and contains:

  • Calories: 90 (95 for chocolate)
  • Protein: 20g
  • Carbs: 0g (0g for chocolate)
  • Fats: 0g (0g for chocolate)


Rich and Co. have outdone themselves yet again with their newest supplement. They keep bringing unique stuff to the industry, and we’ll always take something new and different.

Real Food Egg White Crystals are incredibly versatile, as they can be enjoyed in a shake or as cooked eggs. Plus, they don’t require refrigeration which makes them an excellent option to take along when traveling around the country.

The only prohibitive thing to consider is the cost, but you pay for what you get, so if you want the best the industry has to offer in terms of egg whites, you can’t do much better than 5% Nutrition’s Real Food Egg White Crystals.
