Dear MEL Topic Readers,
The health benefits of eggs
There are all kinds of cooking methods for eggs, boiled, fried, poached, scrambled, and coddled, just to name a few. Also, the number of egg dishes is uncountable, such as eggs benedict, omelet, French toast, egg salad, and deviled eggs. Furthermore, eggs are a key ingredient used in many cooking applications, including baking, dressings, mayonnaise, sauces such as hollandaise and béarnaise. Yes, eggs are one of the most popular foods in the world.
An egg consists of three main parts: the white, yolk, and shell. While the white is primarily protein, the yolk has fat, protein, vitamins, and minerals. Indeed, eggs are rich in nutrients. Some people worry about the cholesterol that is mainly contained in the yolk. However, cholesterol in food is found to affect our blood cholesterol much less than the saturated fat, such as meat fat, butter, and cheese.
Eggs are also economically and environmentally friendly. Eggs are produced only by feeding hens. They lay an egg every day if they are fed with grain and calcium. Eggs can be produced almost anywhere, transported and stored at normal temperature for weeks. They are an ideal source of energy and nutrition even in under-developed, remote, and poor places.
