I do it. They're pastuerized (sp?) though. It's those egg whites in a carton. Only sides I've ever gotten is gas.
Been doing it for 7 years now and I haven't sprouted a third arm out of my forehead or anything unusual...
I think the worry is salmonella poisoning. Eggs are pasteurized, it is bacteria on the shell that carries the salmonella, especially on eggs from the smaller farms where they do not clean them as thoroughly. I would wash the eggs carefully before cracking them into my shake.
Washing the egg doesn't really help. It turns out that salmonella can actually reside in the chickens reproductive tract, and strangely enough winds up inside the egg.
Still, the odds are something like 1 in 10,000 eggs are actually contaminated, so it depends on how lucky you feel. The best way to go is pasteurized, then you know its okay.
the odds are more like 1 in 100,000
i wouldnt be too concerned
more like 1 in 1.000.000, but wash shells anyway.
I hope it is 1 in 1,000,000 b/c if it is 1 in 10,000, anyone who uses them regularly would probably end up getting sick. If you use 6 per day, 7 days per week that would be 42 per week. Do that for a year and...I suck at math, someone else figure it out. The chances is much higher
Egg whites in a shake? Drink the egg whites by itself.
I put the whole egg in my shakes. and have for years.
Youd be surprised how many food items have raw eggs in them. A lot of desserts at restaraunts have raw egg in them. Ceaser dressing if its real has raw or coddled egg. If youve ever eaten a sunny side up egg youve eaten raw egg basically. Personally I think people are too paranoid about it. The only problem is eggs need to be cooked for your body to utilise all the protein in it.
i like to cook my eggs
I was dating a girl and one night she didn't have anything in the fridge, but carton of eggs, I sucked them right out of shells, I thought she's gonna throw up. LOL She said she'll never kiss me again.
I get the pasteurized egg whites in a carton (All Whites). I've put it in my shakes and even drank it straight from the carton when pushed for time.
See, you and I would get alone just fine. You wanna go out, do few shots of egg whites?
Egg white shooters...cool! looks like neither one of us would mind that post-egg white kiss.
LOL Ok, then. Be carefull what you wish for, you might get it. I just came back from Smithfield, NC, I'm a (dirty) truck driver. I'll be back! (in the best Arnold's voice)
That would mean that you use 2184 eggs a year and would run into atleast one containing the bacteria every 4 years and 58 days, +/- a couple of hours.Originally Posted by Beowulf
