~50% of the protein is digestable from a raw egg whites as compared to ~90% for a cooked egg. When you cook an egg you deactivate the protein avidin. If you eat 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.

If only Rocky would have known that. :)

Anyways, I never buy those egg whites in a carton things. It makes no sense. One carton is like $3, while a dozen eggs is like $1.50. It's not hard to remove the egg whites, either.

Bradly why do you allways have to spoil a good thing man? :D
J/K brad good info as always.

I agree w/ NDBeast. And to add to his list of cons... They taste nasty and leave a strange "egg skin" when you cookem.

Bradley:

what if you put the raw egg in a glass in the microwave on high for 25 seconds ?

it gets hot somewhat and sometimes white and puffy

I originally got the idea as a means of sterilization

Yes I recommend cooking the eggs for reasons mentioned above.

Well that is one way, but the method of cooking is not that important.

I agree with you in that hard boiling the eggs is convenient, but sometimes an egg white omelette is might tasty.:)

I really don't know exactly how long you would have to cook the egg whites to deactivate avidin, but if the egg whites are turning white then that is probably enough. Might want to just heat them for a little longer, just to make sure.:)

This makes great fluffy eggs pretty quickly. I would recommend a ceramic coffee mug (they're thicker and less chance of breaking). Also spray some Pam or olive oil in there so it doesn't stick.

After separating egg whites for a week or so, it now takes no time, costs 25% of egg substitutes and tastes better. I do 5 egg whites, 1 whole egg in an omelette every morning. I mix in whatever's in the fridge (usually onions, green or red pepper, scraps of leftover meat, mushrooms, etc.). It's awesome topped with salsa. Lots of fiber, veggies, protein!

For some reason I cant eat much of an egg as if its too rich for me to digest.

Anyone know about this or have any suggestions?

Speaking of Rocky..Stallone's diet looked way to crazy. I read he would eat about 300-500 calories per day. And that most of them were from eggs.

Whole eggs or egg whites?
