Egg Yolks: Raw vs. Cooked
« on: November 11, 2010, 12:25:45 pm »
Is there any reason that raw egg yolks (not talking about whites in this thread) is superior to cooked yolks other than heat-created toxins? Is there any nutritional difference? Does anyone have any studies supporting the toxin or nutrition angles? Someone at another forum is asking me about this.

I don't know but when you hard boil an egg the yolk is not very pleasant to eat its so dehyrated I dont wana eat it without drinking some juice or water with it.
our body has to rehydrate it with our water and enzymes to make it just as it was before cooking lol so I think raw is more easy to digest.
about nutrients some minerals are just destroyed by cooking.

Correct me if im wrong  :)
