    question about eggs .. bobo some help


    i've read (although seen no studies to support this) that drinking eggs is pointless as the protein in eggs will pass right through the body unless the eggs are heated first

    is this true? and if so is it still true for pastuerized egg whites?

    I never heard this before, but upon review I found this:
    "While egg whites are not particularly important to consume, they are relatively harmless when cooked. However, raw egg whites should NOT be consumed.
    Egg whites contain anti-nutrients. Avidin is a glycoprotein in egg whites that binds to the B vitamin biotin, and can lead to a deficiency of this vitamin.

    Additionally, egg whites contain trypsin inhibitors, which could possibly inhibit proper digestion of protein, and growth. Heat destroys both of these compounds.
    Please read Dr. Mercola's article on this particular point here. Again, egg whites are safe to eat cooked, but contain anti-nutrients that could hurt your nurtritional status if consumed raw."

    ""It has been suggested that the reduced digestibility of raw egg white is at least partially related to the presence of trypsin inhibitors in raw egg white (Matthews 1990). Ovomucoid is quantitatively the most important trypsin inhibitor (Gilbert 1971, Kassell 1970). Ovomucoid, however, does not react with human trypsin and, moreover, is relatively heat stable (Kasell 1970)."

    They are fine.

    Thanks bobo. This has been a concern of mine as well for a while. Heard the same thing Glen did and was kind off upset because I like a couple of raw eggs in my shakes.

    IMO your will loose a very tiny bit (overall absortion) when raw but nothing significant.

    It's been my experience that boiled eggs are the best way to go.

    Dr. D suggest taking some biotin and a digestive enzyme (forgot the name) to make sure you fully digest the eggs.

    I take 12 raw a day

    Basing on purely personal experience: Back in the day, early '80's, I would consume 6-8 raw eggs simultaneously; they would pass right out the other end within a short time. Never had that problem with boiled eggs, just my personal opinion.

    This is what Anthony Ricciuto has to say about it. He doesn't cite any studies though :

    "Now some people have asked me can they drink the pasteurized whites since this would neutralize the salmonella. The answer is yes but what you have to watch out for here is that when you consume raw eggs, they will actually leach out one very important vitamin and this is Biotin. This vitamin plays an important role in many functions in the body so drinking raw eggs can lead to a deficiency. The next thing is that drinking your eggs instead of cooking them actually prevents the body from fully absorbing all the protein from the egg.

    Only about half of the protein actually gets absorbed. So this is another thing that you have to look out for when drinking them. The last thing you have to watch out for is the foul disgusting stench that will follow you around like you were concealing a New York sewer in your back pocket.

    The gas that you will get from doing raw eggs will keep you lonely many a nights, that is a guarantee. Your wives will be kicking you out of bed and you will be spending the night with your dog but even he won't be able to stay with you for long. Believe me it will be so bad you won't know what happened.

    To make things worse because of the sulfur content in the eggs the gas you have will not only be among the foulest things you have ever smelled, but it will linger forever. You will lay one on and twenty minutes later you will go back in the room and it will still be there." (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/anthony29.htm)

    And also, Lyle McDonald said : "I can't find it the study right now but uncooked egg whites have a truly ****ty (har har) digestibility. Which is why so many hit the large intestine and make you fart and poop"

    I thought that eggs had a good amount of biotin so you didn't need to do this.

    It doens't really matter if your overall protein intake is mod-high. As for the gas, this could happen with any protein especially those very dense in a liquified state. People complain of this happening with whey shakes all the time. Some people can handle it, some can't. Its not some special characteristic of egg whites.

    The study showing egg white weren't digested well was done on ileostomy patients. The rest of the problems I already addressed.

    "It has been suggested that the reduced digestibility of raw egg white is at least partially related to the presence of trypsin inhibitors in raw egg white (Matthews 1990). Ovomucoid is quantitatively the most important trypsin inhibitor (Gilbert 1971, Kassell 1970).

    I've been drinking egg-white protein shakes for 3 years now, I don't use any whey anymore. But my question is, are teh egg whites used for protein powder first cooked or even if they are, since they are not warm, does it counteract it anyway? Nonetheless though, I;'ve had descent results with the egg powder, so I guess it doesn't really matter, but was just curious...

    I use around 2 packs of splenda per 6-8 eggs. Makes it taste like a vanilla shake.

    i have egg whites and whey shakes quite a bit and just microwave the egg whites for 15-20 seconds first.

    add Whey, water & a splash or 2 of Olive Oil and you have a tasty bunch-o-calories.
