4 false myths about the egg

In this article we will help you to bring down once and for all some untruths about eggs. Here is what you have been told wrong so far:

People with high cholesterol should not eat eggs

Historically, individuals suffering from high cholesterol have been told not to consume eggs at all. In fact, the yellow part contains more fat and cholesterol than the white part, but not all fats are bad and the so-called good cholesterol does not always increase the level of bad cholesterol in the blood. Of course 3 eggs in the morning for each day is by no means a good choice, but one egg a day will not hurt you at all. Areas suffering from diabetes or cardiovascular disease should be more careful and eat no more than three eggs a week.

If you are going to lose weight do not eat yellow

Many people do not eat egg yolk for fear of gaining weight. In fact, jaundice contains proteins and other beneficial substances like vitamin D that contribute to calcium absorption. They also contain choline (choline) which ensures the proper functioning of the liver. These substances, along with lutein are very beneficial to our eyes; substances not found in egg white. The American Heart Association says 1 egg a day should be part of a healthy diet. Experiments show that a whole egg in the morning reduces the amount of food you will eat, and with it the calories.

Eating the egg as it is does you better than the boiled egg

It is thought that eating raw eggs helps to increase muscle mass, improve tone of voice, or reduce stomach acid. But here the live egg is overestimated more than it should be. The egg white in question is not absorbed by the body as well as that which is cooked, including the absorption of vitamin B7, the process of which risks being blocked when the egg is eaten as it is.

There are only white or brown eggs

The color of the egg shell depends on the breed, although we are generally accustomed to seeing two types: white and brown. What you do not know is that some breeds like Araucana or Ameraucabna lay blue or green eggs. Although the color depends on the pigment and the diet of the chicken, ie what the chicken eats, all this does not affect the quality of the egg.
