All About Egg Facts:
How do you know whether an egg is fresh or not?
Did you know that you can tell whether an egg is fresh or stale by dropping it in water? A fresh egg will sink, but a stale one will float. Here are some more fun facts about eggs.
- Eggs contain all the essential protein, minerals and vitamins, and egg yolks are one of the few foods that naturally contain Vitamin D.
- Eggs contain zero carbs, no sugar, about 6 grams of protein and 70 calories.
- Eggs are good for your eyes because they contain lutein, which helps prevent age-related cataracts and muscle degeneration.
- The edible part of a chicken’s egg is approximately 74 percent water, 12 percent protein and 11 percent fat.
- A chef’s hat is said to have a pleat for each of the many ways you can cook eggs.
- Egg shell and yolk color can vary, and the color has no relation to egg quality, flavor, nutritive value, cooking characteristics or shell thickness.
- The breed of the hen determines the color of the egg shell, and it can range from white to deep brown. Among commercial breeds, hens with feathers and ear lobes lay white-shelled eggs and hens with red feathers and ear lobes lay brown-shelled eggs.
- Because breeds that lay brown eggs are typically slightly larger birds, they require more food, making brown eggs usually more expensive than white.
Today’s Food for Thought
Experience has taught me that eating great, losing weight, and keeping it off requires more than just the right low calories recipes, which is why I’m passionate about providing you with a “little something extra” when you visit. I call it “food for thought”…
