6. Naked Egg Premium Egg White Protein Powder

This bad boy only contains two ingredients: egg white protein (from eggs) and sunflower lecithin. As you may know, egg whites are a great source of protein so this powder may be a no brainer. The egg yolk itself contains a ton of cholesterol, and when removed you're left with the white that's full of protein and no added fat.
