Egg Beaters Whites

454 grams for HK$55, City'super

Each three tablespoon serving (equivalent of one whole egg) has 25 calories and no fat or cholesterol, making it ideal for those on a diet. Murky and watery, this spread very quickly in the frying pan, like thin pancake batter. Verdict: this does not taste of egg whites. In fact, does not taste of much of anything.

Eggology 100% Egg Whites

454 grams for HK$89, City'super

Like Egg Beaters, this product has a similar nutrition value with 5 grams of protein per serving. Fitness buffs who are looking to build muscle or boost recovery will appreciate this. But anything with such a long shelf life is suspect. Verdict: slightly less watery and murky, and a good bit tastier than the Egg Beaters.

Natural Living eggs

Half-dozen for HK$39, City'super

I thought it's only fair to compare pre-packaged whites to natural ones (separated from the yolk). The package says these are from 'happy hens' who lay 'premium eggs while taking in the sunshine and exploring the great outdoors' on an Australian family-owned farm. Verdict: thick and viscous when raw, and fluffy and flavourful when cooked - as egg whites should be.
