Egg Protien

Can anyone tell me the protien content of an grade A large egg WHITE? I have heard as high as 5 grams and as low as 2. According to the package they have six grams total. How much of that is in the yolk/white?

The yolk contains half of the protein of a whole egg - the white contains the other half.

It’s about half and half.

The white has 5 gms, the yolk 1.

An extra large GradeAA egg white yields 2.2 to 2.5 grams of the most bioavailable protein you can ingest, with no fat whatsoever.


First off its about 1/2 and 1/2. Big Red is WAY OFF. Why dont you get off your ass and do the research.

Ed, I needed your verbal slap; during a cursory search, I found between 2.5 and 4 gms. So, I guess I have egg on my face. A PER of 3.9 too…
