Egg is ranked at 100% bioavalibilty (best absorbing), so egg whites are great.

Just wondering why you want to stay away from milk protein?

I've read 98%.

I'm sure its somewhere in there, do you mind sharing your source?

Here's mine:

Eggs - In terms of its biological value (a measure of protein quality, assessed by determining how well a given food or food mixture supports nitrogen retention), eggs are the best source for which you could ask. On a scale of 100%, egg whites have a BV value of 100%. Yay for the egg! And no, you don’t need to be like Rocky and down a raw egg shake in the morning (although it would be totally sweet if you could help bring an end to the Cold War by beating up a giant Soviet heavyweight). Actually, doing so will interfere with biotin absorption from the egg yolk due to the high traces of avidin found in raw egg whites. Besides, cooking your eggs denatures the protein, which increases its bioavailabilit

EDIT: Didn't mean to sound like a ****, just figured you'd have a good source.
