Egg Cyclopedia

Time to learn some trivia about eggs.

The fresh egg brand that we frequently buy in the supermarket bore this interesting information about eggs under its tray label, which is appropriately titled “Egg Cyclopedia.”

1. Eggs are considered to be healthy and balanced food for all age groups.
2. Most of an egg’s vitamins are in the yolk (yellow).
3. Most of an egg’s proteins and minerals are in albumen (egg white).
4. The only difference in a white and a brown egg is the colour of shell. Nutritionally both are same.
5. First eggs layed by young hens often have double yolks. Some older hens lay jumbo size eggs which sometimes have double yolks.
6. The best sign of freshness of an egg is that when broken into a pot it would stay firm and would not spread out fast like water.
7. To boil eggs choose 3 to 4 days old eggs. They are easier to peel.
8. Egg shells are porous, hence, they should not be stored with products like garlic, apples, etc. which have strong odor.
9. It is always advisable to eat thoroughly cooked eggs.

Now I know my eggs very well. What a nutritious treat!
