cooked eggs, raw eggs are dangerous to take, at least 1 out of every 10 contains salmanilla. at least according to my genral nutrition professor said.but cooked is better bc cooked eggs are easier to break down for the body than raw eggs

ya, thats y i said according to my genral nutrtion professor. she could have just been saying 1 out of 10 to keep us from eating them raw, she could have been completely exaggerating.

This is one of those topics for the ages. Most everyone will tell you to fully cook your eggs. I personally drink liquid egg whites each day, albeit they are pasteurized, they are far from cooked. It works for me. As far as eating whole eggs/yolks, I either hard boil eggs or scramble and pan fry them.
According to eggwhitesint.com:
The human body cannot completely and safely digest a raw egg white. So, if you like to do the "Rocky Routine" with a raw egg or raw egg white in your drink, you are wasting your time, not to mention the threat of Salmonella. Avidin, which is found in raw egg whites, blocks the uptake of Vitamin B6 (Biotin) causing a vitamin deficiency. You must cook the egg white to neutralize the Avidin and allow your body to safely digest the protein and utilize all its Amino acids. Unfortunately, cooking also starts to destory the protein.
Our 100% pure liquid egg whites from Egg Whites International are heat pasteurized and salmonella tested. The pasteurization process heats the egg white to 134 degrees for 3½ minutes. This heat kills the salmonella and neutralizes the Avidin to allow the egg whites to be digested safely by the human body. When you cook an egg white to the point of scrambled eggs, you are overcooking the protein and denaturing the true value of the protein. Therefore, 100% Pure Liquid Egg Whites are liquid but not raw, making them the purest form of protein In The Entire World! They will stay good in your refrigerator for 90 to 120 days and can be safely kept frozen indefinitely.
This is the same process for the liquid eggs that I drink.

That denaturing effect is what you want, it won't detract from the nutrition of the egg, it just makes digestion easier.

I'm all about convenience in this regard.

The chances of picking up salmonella from eggs is fairly low since the egg has to be harboring the bacteria for you to get it in the first place, but still, it's all about the efficiency of digestion in this case. BUT you do eliminate the risk to 0% if you cook them, so... Yeah, cook 'em!

I used to make homemade protein bars but they were more like meal replacement bars and it was like eating a brick! lol
Shakes are the way to go! Get an electronic coffee grinder and grind up your oats into a powder. Very, very easy way to get in good carbs. Eating oatmeal feels like a chore, but I can chug oat powder in just a few seconds. Yay

i read somewhere that although raw eggs contain something like 6 more grams of protein than cooked eggs the bio availability of protein in a raw egg is 35% where the bio availability in a cooked egg is 90%

Digestibility of Cooked and Raw Egg Protein in Humans as Assessed by Stable Isotope Techniques1,2,3

Egg proteins contribute substantially to the daily nitrogen allowances in Western countries and are generally considered to be highly digestible. However, information is lacking on the true ileal digestibility of either raw or cooked egg protein. The recent availability of stable isotope-labeled egg protein allowed determination of the true ileal digestibility of egg protein by means of noninvasive tracer techniques. Five ileostomy patients were studied, once after ingestion of a test meal consisting of 25 g of cooked 13C- and 15N-labeled egg protein, and once after ingestion of the same test meal in raw form. Ileal effluents and breath samples were collected at regular intervals after consumption of the test meal and analyzed for 15N- and 13C-content, respectively. The true ileal digestibility of cooked and raw egg protein amounted to 90.9 ± 0.8 and 51.3 ± 9.8%, respectively. A significant negative correlation (r = -0.92, P < 0.001) was found between the 13C-recovery in breath and the recovery of exogenous N in the ileal effluents. In summary, using the 15N-dilution technique we demonstrated that the assimilation of cooked egg protein is efficient, albeit incomplete, and that the true ileal digestibility of egg protein is significantly enhanced by heat-pretreatment. A simple 13C-breath test technique furthermore proved to be a suitable alternative for the evaluation of the true ileal digestibility of egg protein.

Since a lot of bird poop is still, theoretically, usable, chicken farmers mix bird poop with bird food to increase profit margins.
This practice increases salmonella contamination in any raw poultry product.

I don't know if any brands DON'T do it. I just cook mine all the way. Eating raw eggs is like Russian roulette, and if someone relies THAT heavily on egg protein, then they should probably get their diet in check.
each to their own- just risky for negligible difference IMO and seems like missing training for even possible salmonella poisoning isn't a good idea.
If it works for you and you're happy, more power to you
