Default egg whites

In the 4 week express book, it says "8" for the amt of egg white to eaqual 1 protein. Does anyone know what measured amt that is. On the carton, it says 3 tablespoons for a serving.

I'm in Canada and we work in millilitres instead of ounces . . . but . . . my carton of egg whites says it contains 500 ml and is equivalent to 16 egg whites. Since 500 ml = 2 cups = 16 whites; simple mathematics would say that 1 cup of whites is equal to 8 egg whites.

Hope that helps.

Thats what I figured too. Sure is a lot of food. I really like to fry some frozen spinach, add the egg whites, then 1 oz cheese. It is a lot of food 1v/1p/.5d

I make omelettes with a cup of whites all the time . . . after all, the whites are just straight protein . . . the fat is in the yolk. Enjoy.
