Raw Eggs Are Good

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.

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?

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

like beelzebub said, in a protein shake, you dont taste em at all. try this
12 to 16oz milk
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!
