Since ancient times,

has always been a regular customer on the table, almost every day can not do without it. However, although eating for many years, many people do not know enough about eggs, and the misunderstanding about it has been widely spread. Misunderstanding of

and

: red shell egg is more nutritious than white shell egg. In the past, people always thought that red shell eggs were more nutritious, and the price of red shell eggs on the market was more expensive. The results showed that the color of eggshell was related to chicken breeds, but not to nutrition. The second mistake of

and

is that farmhouse eggs are more nutritious. Real farm eggs (native eggs) may be better to eat. However, the detection showed that the nutrient content of farm eggs was not higher than that of ordinary eggs. In addition, it is difficult to control the environmental sanitation of laying eggs of native chickens, and eggs are more likely to be contaminated by feces. The third mistake of

and

is that the “new egg” and “functional egg” are more nutritious. Generally speaking, the eggs laid in the growing period of 130-160 days are called primary eggs. There is no test evidence to show that the nutrient content of primary eggs is higher than that of ordinary eggs. In fact, the size of new eggs is small, about 40 grams each. Because of the weight is not standard, it is not allowed to be sold abroad. Egg is rich in zinc and iodine. This sounds good, but in fact, because there are no standards and it is not easy to test, many products have the suspicion of over publicity. The fourth misunderstanding of

and

: the more yellow the egg yolk, the better the nutrition. The color of egg yolk is related to the pigments it contains, some of which, such as carotene, do have nutritional value. However, the existing technology can easily deepen the color of egg yolk, not only has nothing to do with nutrition, but also brings security risks. The fifth mistake of

and

: Woolen egg is a tonic. Hairy eggs, namely “dead eggs”, are embryos that are hatched to the middle of the egg, and are often used as tonic in many areas. In fact, the nutritional value of woolen eggs is not high, and often contains a lot of pathogenic bacteria. Misunderstanding 6 of

and

: the longer the egg is boiled, the better. The best way to eat an egg is that the egg white has solidified, while the yolk is in a semi solidified or flowing state. This can not only ensure the digestibility and absorption rate, but also avoid the loss of nutrients. Seven misunderstandings of

and

: raw eggs are more nutritious. Eating raw eggs will interfere with the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin). Although occasionally eating raw eggs will not lead to biotin deficiency, raw eggs are susceptible to bacterial infection. Misunderstanding 8 of

and

: lying in women should eat more eggs. It is a custom for parturient to eat a lot of eggs when they are in confinement. In addition to eating one or two eggs a day, pregnant women should also eat meat, milk, beans, grains and fruits and vegetables to achieve a balanced diet. Misunderstanding 9 of

and

: eggs should not be eaten with soybean milk. Proponents believe that soy contains trypsin inhibitor, which affects the digestion and absorption of protein in the body. However, after soybean milk is made, trypsin inhibitor is destroyed during heating, and there is no problem eating with eggs. Misunderstanding of

and

: do not eat eggs when you have a cold. When you have a cold and a fever, the body’s energy consumption is large, and the body’s resistance will decrease. You can’t eat anything. You lack nutrition. It’s good for the recovery of the body to supplement the food with high protein such as eggs properly. Fried egg soup or egg soup is preferred, but not easy to digest. ▲
