Eggs taste good.
They can be boiled, fried, scrambled, made into an omlet
and are a necessary basic ingredient in a great many recipes.
On the issue of nutrition, eggs are an excellent source of protein.
According to food nutrition facts, eggs are grouped under meats,
considering the fact that they contain a high percentage of protein
and choline (a B complex vitamin). Thus, eggs are included in a
high protein diet for muscle building and losing weight.
Containing all essential amino acids,
the protein present in egg is termed as perfect protein.
It is used as a standard for comparing other protein sources.
As far as the actual amount of egg protein is concerned,
the percentage in egg white (albumin) is higher than that of the yolk part.
The egg white extracted from a large egg contains approximately 4 g of protein.
In comparison to this, the total protein content in a whole egg accounts to
6 g (or slightly more). In a hard boiled egg, protein amount remains the same,
about 6 g. Eggs provide essential amino acids, vitamins and trace minerals.
A large whole egg has about 80 calories,
while one egg-white has about 15 calories.
Except for protein, the egg-white (albumin part) is devoid of nutrients,
Therefore...aside from the calorie issue....
consuming a whole egg is a better way to get all the healthy nutrients.
