Health benefits of Egg Beaters
Simple Swap, Big Impact
While the traditional whole egg delivers a variety of important nutrients, it also contains fat, calories, and cholesterol—mostly found in its yolk. But Egg Beaters are all egg whites—with no yolks—so when you choose to substitute Egg Beaters for shell eggs, you’re making a smart choice for better health.

Protein Packs a Punch
There's a lot of buzz around protein-rich foods these days—and for good reason. High-protein foods are great for weight management because they help you feel more full compared to eating the same amount of starch, sugar, or fat. Also, protein is an essential building block for muscles, blood, skin, hair, and nails.
Eggs are the highest quality protein you can eat. Because all Egg Beaters products are made from egg whites, they contain the same quality protein in shell eggs, but with less calories and zero fat or cholesterol.
Cholesterol: How Low Can You Go?
If you're working to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, Egg Beaters can help.* The cholesterol in eggs is found in the yolk. Since Egg Beaters are made from all-natural egg whites, our products have little or zero cholesterol. Our Original and Southwestern varieties are a great choice if you are looking for a taste and experience similar to shell eggs. Our 100% Egg Whites have a milder flavor.
A Healthier Diet for Diabetics
As a diabetic, you know it's important to keep your blood sugar levels under control and keep your weight at a healthy level. Egg Beaters have the same amount of carbohydrates, fewer calories, and less fat than shell eggs, so they can help you maintain a healthier diet without needing to dramatically change your eating habits.
* While many factors affect heart disease, a healthful diet low in saturated fat, total fat, and cholesterol, as part of a healthy lifestyle, may lower blood cholesterol levels and may reduce the risk of heart disease.
