Four myths about eggs

2018-04-22 04:48:21

Eggs are closely related to people's lives, but many people have misunderstandings about eggs. Let me briefly point out four misconceptions people have about eggs.


Red eggs are better than white eggs. In fact, due to the influence of genetics, different breeds of hens can lay different colors of eggs, but most hens are laying white eggs, and the taste of eggs depends on the health of the hens and the quality and quality of the feed. It has nothing to do with color.


The egg can be identified by the color of the yolk. The color of the egg yolk depends on the carotenoids in the feed eaten by the hens, and the more carotenoids are contained, the color of the egg yolk is dark.


If eggs taste like fish, it's because there's fish meal in the chicken feed. The fishy taste of eggs is due to trimethylamine, the same substance produced during the breakdown of nitrogen-rich protein compounds.


Fresh eggs taste better. The study, based on the responses of 30,000 tasters, concluded that most people rated 14-day-old eggs as the best, followed by 3-day-old eggs and then 21-day-old eggs.
