Are white eggs different from brown eggs?

Eggshell colour depends on the breed of hen. As a general rule, white shell eggs are produced by white-feathered hens, while brown-shelled eggs come from hens with brown-feathered hens. There is no nutritional difference between brown and white eggs, unless the hen’s diet has been enriched to produce specialty eggs.

Is it true that eggs are high in cholesterol?

Decades of research have confirmed that dietary cholesterol (the cholesterol found in food) has no effect on blood cholesterol levels and does not increase the risk of heart disease. You can eat eggs daily as part of a varied and balanced diet.

Are there steroids and hormones in eggs?

What’s an egg’s nutritional value?

One large egg contains 6 grams of protein and 14 important nutrients such as vitamins A, D and E, folate, iron, and zinc. Because they contain all 9 essential amino acids, eggs are among the few foods considered to be a complete source of protein.

Is eating only the egg white better for you?

No, quite the opposite. The egg white is 90% water and contains part of the egg’s protein. By eating only the white, you’re depriving yourself of all the nutrients the yolk contains: the other portion of protein, unsaturated fats (including omega 3), vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients.
