egg yolks and oxidized cholesterol
« on: August 12, 2011, 06:08:39 am »
Hi all. Just wondering under what conditions raw egg yolk cholesterol would become oxidized. If I take a dozen and put them in a bowl while I cook up the whites(10 minutes) and, for sake of argument, all the yolks break, would the cholesterol oxidize in this time or am I off track re: conditions/causes of O2 cholesterol? Feedback appreciated.

Cooking oxidises  food. But raw foods seem to take far, ar longer to get oxidised. In theory, "high-meat" would be oxidised to some extent, but the benefits obviously outweigh any disadvantages.
