Eggs and egg protein has long been a staple of bodybuilding nutrition and supplementation. Egg protein is commonly referred to as the "perfect protein" - egg proteins are the common reference to which other proteins are compared to.

Two values are commonly used to measure protein quality: Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAA) and biological value. Biological value measures the amount of protein retained from the absorbed protein. Egg protein scores 100 on the biological value, meaning all ingested egg protein is retained (used) by the body (egg protein contains all the essential amino acids needed by the body). Another protein which scores 100 on the biological value score is whey protein.

The PDCAA score measures the "completeness" of a protein, where a score of 1.0 is the highest measure. Egg whites, along with soy protein isolates, whey protein, and casein protein all score 1.0 on this. Whey protein actually scores 1.14 on this, but is reported at the highest 1.0.
