What is healthier whole egg or egg white?

There are always some doubts and controversies about egg consumption, some say that they are healthy, others claim that they are healthy only if consumed in moderation, and today we answer some of the most common questions when it comes to eggs.

One of the biggest doubts when it comes to egg consumption is certainly whether it is healthier to eat a whole egg or just a yolk. Yolks have been notorious for decades and have been linked to weight gain and heart disease, but that is far from the truth. Experts claim that eggs are a very nutritious food and you deprive your body of a lot of nutrients if you give up yolks. Here are some reasons why you should eat only whole eggs.


Proteins do not have sufficient nutritional value. Consuming only egg whites can lead to a lack of biotin. Egg whites contain avidin, a substance that binds to biotin. Due to the lack of biotin in the yolks, avidin from egg whites binds to biotin in the body, which can lead to a lack of the same.

Egg yolks store nutrients. Not only are they rich in B vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D and proteins, egg yolks are rich in amino acids that the body needs for normal hormonal balance.

Egg yolks do not affect elevated cholesterol. This myth is completely incorrect, although we are sure that many of you who read these lines still believe in it. It has been scientifically proven that one or two egg yolks in no way affect the level of cholesterol in the blood, and the British Medical Journal concluded that the consumption of egg yolks is not associated with an increased risk of stroke or heart disease.


Whole eggs do not affect obesity. You should think about eggs towards the perfect natural food in which all healthy nutrients are stored and there is no need to be afraid of consuming eggs. The only important thing is to buy pasteurized, organic eggs that have been proven to have 1/3 less cholesterol, 2/3 more vitamin A, ¼ less saturated fat, and are rich in beta carotene, omega 3 fatty acids and are an excellent nutritional choice. . On the other hand, if you have high cholesterol, consult your doctor before re-including eggs in your diet.
