I hear of a lot of people how great protein from whole food such as eggs are so decided to mix 6 whites 2 yolks in yoghurt oats banaana and whey glutamine with flax oil for the ultimate meal in a drink.
Got told the other by the guy working in the supplement shop that when he trained in california he was told you cant absorb raw eggs as you have to heat kill the bacteria first. Is this true? if not can you prevent samonella by mixing raw eggs in ice?
Thanks

They are NOT good.

first of all it is dangerous. You can get very sick from it. Many eggs have salmonella or other harmful bacteria in it.

then it is completely useless, because you can not digest raw egg very well. a lot of the protein will simply go lost.

then for a third, it tastes like crap.

altogether, eating raw eggs is lame

If you need to have eggwhites to mix in your shakes for instance, any grocery store sells ultra pastrueized eggwhite liquid that you can use directly with no fear of salmonella. 3 tbsp.=5gr protein, 25 cal.

eat the whole egg.
I eat raw eggs. I am not saying I recommended it. I eat them as within minutes of cracking. I read its the temp that makes a big deal. Don't have the article and don't know the validity of it.
The eggs I got now were in and out of a cooler last weekend so I won't eat them raw.
I like milk, 2 -3 eggs, oats, pb, maybe a banna sometimes chocolate.

Only 1 in 30 000 eggs have salmonella.

I believe its far more than that. and even if it is really that little, that doesn`t change the digestion or the taste argument.

As was mentioned above the salmonella is not that big of a concern, but the digestability of the egg would be a concern. ~50% of the protein is digestable from a raw egg as compared to ~90% for a cooked egg.

Hello, my first post here. I eat organic raw eggs often and always have all the yolks. I can't digest cooked eggs very well at all, in fact I stopped having eggs until I found out that I might digest them better raw.

One more reason not to listen to Mercola.

Here's one more. He's got an article up on sucralose. A reader sent an email with this completely moronic statement:


Well, I am allergic to chlorine

Wow, she's actually allergic to 0.15% of her own body! :rolleyes: He actually put that reader's email in his article. Complete moronage.

From Mercola's own website:


Salmonella is a serious infection, and it is believed that in the US over two-thirds of a million cases of human illnesses a year result from eating contaminated eggs.

there is not one benefit to eating raw eggs.

by eating raw eggs you are:

increasing the odds of contracting salmonella, lowering the levels of biotin and short changing yourself on protein.

I don't see what's wrong with cooking eggs. Won't change the nutritional value in them.

why can't you digest raw eggs? Sorry if I missed it. Haven't had alot of time lately. I don't eat raw eggs cause I think there is a bennefit its that its quick. If you mix it in with milk and pb in a blender never taste it.

Raw eggs taste ok. It just feels odd the way it all slides down your throat in one go, I think that is the problem people have with them. I should think there is more natural goodness in eggs than in these protein powders so many people live on.

Having sensitivity to swimming pool chlorine products is one thing. Irritation does not necessarily equal allergy. And if an allergy to the products is involved, it's not to the chlorine- there's something else in the product causing it. Allergies are caused by proteins and carbohydrates for the most part. They are recognized by the body's immune system and elicit a histamine response. Chlorine is an element. It's found in every cell in the body. If somebody was allergic to chlorine, they'd be dead.

When you heat the egg you deactivate the protein avidin. When eating uncooked egg whites the protein avidin will bind to biotin which will hinder the absorption of the protein, and could also lead to a biotin deficiency.

Anyone know how egg protein powder is made? Is is just dehydrated raw egg whites? I use egg protein powder, and now I'm wondering, if this is made from raw eggs, am I getting poor protein quality compared to cooked egg whites?
