View Full Version : Fitday...egg white question
07-08-2006, 11:10 PM
Hi, I was wondering on fitday...it says egg white raw and egg white cooked. If I measure 1 cup of egg white raw its: 121.5 cal and 25.56 protein, and cooked its: 81.18 cal, 17.08 protein...So does this mean once I cook the egg white it loses nutrients?

I guess so. It's the same on there with 1 cup of whole eggs as well. That's strange because there's considerably less protein after it's cooked.

Are you sure? Where do you see that? I just looked and the raw, boiled, scrambled for the whole egg are all different.
I was also wondering if you or anyone has any idea if I heat up a protein bar so it would be like a hot brownie, if doing this, would it take away any protein?

Oh, and I mean by microwave...idk if that matters or not.

I'm looking at other sites and the difference between raw and cooked egg protein varies VERY little...as opposed to FitDay's ridiculous differences.
