  1. Raw eggs


    I drink about a dozen a day...Some people say im crazy but I say otherwise..

    Raw Eggs Are Good


  2. You are crazy but that's not related to the fact that eggs are good.

    If you worry about salmonella or cholesterol much you can always add Egg Beaters to your shakes instead. Yolk free and pasturized but you'll pay more.

    So you just break them into a glass and drink them? How many at a time?

  9. I eat raw eggs all the time. I don't consider it to be a big deal at all, especially once you realize that most of the health concerns people have (salmonella, etc.) are not nearly as prevalent as some believe.

    I thought I had read somewhere many moons ago that not much was utilized from raw eggs? That they need to be cooked at least somewhat before giving any nutritional benefit?

    It is true Completley useless to drink raw eggs.

  12. I think you can still absorb protein from the yolk, just not the albumen.

  13. i at one time read ONE claim (might have been an abstract) that there were issues absorbing protein from the raw albumin (whites). i haven't seen this confirmed, or any strong scientific basis for this claim.

    so, i'm skeptical

    in regards to salmonella, i read a stat once that showed the chance of catching salmonella from a given raw egg. it was somewhere around 1/15,000 iirc.

    and my understanding is that washing reduces that risk

    however, if you ever GEt salmonella, from what i understand, you probably won't even look at an egg for the rest of your life. it's pretty terrible

  14. A dozen raw eggs a day would have me ****tin like a goose!

  15. Seems to be a lot of contradictory information on this topic. The guy in the article madman posted said that egg protein is useless if cooked. You guys are saying it's useless uncooked. I'm willing to eat them either way just want to know which way is best.

  16. i am saying i heard A REPORT the protein in the albumin (and the albumin is PURE protein btw. 3 grams per egg) is undigestable. that's ONE report, and i have seen no studies or confirmation of that. iow, BIG grain of salt. the yolk has 4 gms, and i have never heard that to be undigestable.

    i would take the undigestable albumin thing with skepticism. i also recall something realted to it about biotin, but maybe a google or medline search would turn it up. i don't eat enough raw eggs (maybe a dozen raw a week) to really care ThAT much

    anybody who says egg protein is useless if COOKED, does not know what they are talking about

  17. Raw egg protein digests just fine. Its denatured in the stomach like any other protein. Cooked eggs are also fine unless you cook them for a prolonged peroid of time (ie burning them).

    The denaturing of proteins within food due to heat is extremely minimal.

  18. that's good. because i just made some cheesecake, and i used a scoop of chocolate whey in one of them. i made 3.

    got the recipe from the latest edition of the online mag at avantlabs.com

    but i need to wait another 3 hours for it to cool before i eat it.

  19. I just can't get myself to swallow a huge booger...I'll keep cooking my eggs..

  20. I've been eating raw eggs for a little over 5 years now. Haven't had any problems as of yet. I usually throw em in a blender with some protein powder.

  21. not to hijack the thread. but the cheesecake tastes good!

    breakfast of champions!

    I've done the same. I think it gives the shake a smoother texture.

  23. i heard that salmonila comes from the egg shell, not from the egg itself. so i guess thats why washing it makes it safer
  24. yea!


    like beelzebub said, in a protein shake, you dont taste em at all. try this

    12 to 16oz milk
    1 banana
    2 to 3 raw eggs
    1/2 cup crushed ice (optional)
    1 tbsp olive oil (optional)
    1 to 2 scoops favorite protein-chocolate is my fav.
    1 to 2 tbsp peanut butter

    Tastes good as hell, and packs in the calories and protein!

    do you use the whole egg or just the whites?

  26. I use the whole egg-a lot of people think that its better, for cholesterol reasons, exc, to just use the white, but there is a lot to be gained from the yolk, too- I say use it all.

  27. Would the cage-free eggs be safer? The ones you find in the organic section...

  29. I've seen on cases of eggs that they're pasteurized. Wouldn't that kill any chance of salmonella?

  30. Hey I thought that this site might help out a little bit.
    www.eggwhitesint.com
    here is a quote from the site.
    What's the difference between LIQUID and RAW egg whites? The human body cannot digest a raw egg white. So, if you like to do the ‚€œRocky Routine‚€? with a raw egg or raw egg white in your drink, you are wasting your time. Because of the Avidin found in a raw egg white, your body cannot digest a raw egg white. Not to mention the threat of Salmonella. You must cook the egg white to neutralize the Avidin and allow your body to digest the protein. Too much Avidin in your system can cause a Biotin deficiency.

    Plus this makes it easier than cracking open 12 eggs everymorning!
    here is a little more

    n. A protein, found in uncooked egg white, that binds to and inactivates biotin and which, when present in abundance, can result in a deficiency of biotin.

    So I guess if you are going to suck down raw eggs anyway you may want to supplement with a couple B-vitamins.
