Eggs!

mystaranise

Lately I've been asked about the consumption of raw eggs and in particular whether its ok to eat raw egg whites.  Egg yolks are fine to eat raw but egg whites should not be consumed raw on a regular basis. The reason is that raw egg whites contain a substance called avidin which interferes with the absorption of biotin, a B vitamin.They also contain trypsin inhibitors which interfere with protein digestion. You might experience stomach cramps if you consume raw whites on a regular basis for this reason. These anti-nutrients are neutralized by cooking. Rare / occasional (not daily) consumption is fine.

So bottom line: eat as many raw egg YOLKS as you want but save the whites in a small pyrex and COOK them as omelletes & scrambled eggs.
