They say good things come in small packages! This could be true for eggs, because they are full of protein and minerals. Suffice to say a breakfast without an egg is simply not worth it, so here are some unknown facts about eggs that you might want to know about!
An Egg is a Complete Protein
The protein in an egg is never wasted. Your body tends to get used to every bit of protein as it is broken down into amino acids and absorbed in your body. Then you need atleast an egg a day which will help in protein utilization.
Source of Happiness why not?
This is no exaggeration. In fact an egg yolk contains the vitamin choline, which breaks down into bethane when consumed. Bethane is a substance used during methylation. Then Neurotransmitters such as norephinephrin, serotonin and dopamine which are released during the process. Thus it is collectively termed as, “happiness hormones.”
Rich Yellow Yolk
The yellow color found on an egg yolk does not necessarily mean more health for you. The intensity of color does actually vary according to what the chicken fed on. Fowls which are fed on a variety of grains and rich grasses tend to produce a deep yellow hued yolks but this doesn’t necessarly have any bearing on the quality of the egg.
Egg Whites If you choose an egg by the clarity of its white part is not too wise! Fact is, the color of an egg gets clearer with age. The fresh ones tend to have a milky, translucent white colour. This does not affect the nutrition quotient of an egg directly. So, you are advised to eat both the clear as well as the opaque ones because it won’t change anything.
The Age Of Chicken
You are advised to count the number of years on your chicken before they lay eggs. The very old chickens (97 weeks) and very young chickens (28 weeks) tend to produce eggs that are usually low in solids. Brown Or White farce The old debate of brown or white colour of an egg doesn’t have any relation to an egg’s nutritive value.The shell color always depicts the breed of the chicken but this again has nothing to do with the protein content of the egg. So next time you make your breakfast make sure to include eggs. Putting eggs in one basket is your prerogative now.
