At the same time, eggs are rich in nutrients, the proportion of protein type and amino acid composition is perfect, and the price is still very close to the people. It can be said to be the most affordable food.
If humans didn’t have eggs, there would be a lot less food in the world.
I have eaten eggs for decades, but I didn’t expect that there are so many misunderstandings about eggs! ! !
Now they sell foreign eggs that are fed from feed, how can there be no native eggs that are nutritious!
Eggs are nutritious only if they are eaten raw. I can’t eat them raw. I’m all boiled eggs!
I also like to eat eggs, but the cholesterol is a bit high and I dare not eat them!
Various legends about eggs
Native eggs are more nutritious than foreign eggs
Many people believe that the nutritional value of eggs is directly related to the way chickens are raised. Compared with the kind of feed chickens, the chickens that usually rely on eating insects, wild vegetables or vegetables for food have better nutritional value than conventional eggs.
How is the truth?
The expert advisory committee of the Chinese Nutrition Society once conducted a special analysis on the local eggs and foreign eggs. The result is that the protein, carbohydrates, calcium and other contents of the local eggs are higher, while the vitamin A, vitamin B2, niacin, etc. are lower, but Overall, there is not much difference between the two.
Therefore, in the world of eggs, the nutritional value of native eggs and ordinary eggs is actually almost the same. How to choose, just eat happily!
Raw eggs are more nutritious
Some bodybuilders and health-loving people believe that eating raw is a way to directly absorb all nutrients, which can ensure that the nutrients contained in eggs are not destroyed and wasted.
But from the perspective of health, undercooked eggs not only affect the absorption of nutrients, but also have certain risks.
First, raw eggs are difficult to digest. The chemical structure of eggs changes during the heating process. Unheated eggs are difficult to digest and nutrients are difficult to absorb.
Raw eggs also contain germs, such as salmonella, mold, etc., and some also contain parasite eggs.
This means that in the process of eating raw eggs, not only will you not be able to obtain nutrients, but you may also eat parasite eggs and germs into your stomach, which will cause harm to your body.
The same is true for soft-hearted eggs. Don’t eat these undercooked eggs!
Can’t eat eggs when you have a cold
Colds are respiratory symptoms caused by various viruses, and the most common common cold is caused by rhinovirus infection.
In general, repeated colds are mostly related to the lack of the body’s immune system. If you want your immune system to be strong enough to fight off viruses, you should pay attention to nutritional enhancements, and eggs belong to this kind of food .
It contains a large amount of protein, lecithin, fat, vitamins and other nutrients, especially high protein content, and is a high-quality protein that is easily absorbed and utilized by the human body, easy to digest and absorb, and will not affect the gastrointestinal tract.
However, if the cold is accompanied by high fever, the metabolism in the body is faster than usual, and the loss of nutrients will be more. What you need to do at this time is to add water to prevent your own dehydration. You can choose liquid and semi-liquid foods, such as egg soup and egg custard.
Eggs cannot be eaten with soy milk
This statement is the most widely spread. It is said that soy milk contains trypsin inhibitor, which will inhibit the digestion of protein, thereby affecting the absorption of nutrients in eggs.
Soy does contain some trypsin inhibitors, which can inhibit the digestion of trypsin, thereby reducing the absorption of protein. Therefore, soy milk must be cooked, and one of the functions of cooking is to destroy the activity of protease inhibitors.
It has nothing to do with eggs.
If its activity is destroyed, it will not affect the digestion of any protein; if it is not destroyed, not only the egg, but also the digestion and absorption of soy protein itself will be affected.
People with high cholesterol should not eat eggs
Many people think that egg yolks will lead to high cholesterol intake, and they are afraid to eat eggs at ordinary times. In fact, although the cholesterol content of egg yolk is high, it is also an essential nutrient for the human body, and egg yolk is rich in a large amount of essential nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D, etc., which is an uncompromising treasure house of nutrition.
Healthy people do not need to pay attention to their dietary cholesterol intake. For hyperlipidemia patients, the daily intake of cholesterol is less than 300 mg, and the cholesterol content of an egg yolk is about 200 mg. It is OK to eat one egg a day! Compared with eggs, high-fat foods are the culprit in raising serum cholesterol. Saturated fats in meat products, and trans fats in fried and processed foods all cause our bodies to synthesize more cholesterol.
