Why You Should Eat Whole Egg With Yolk Instead of Egg White

“Don’t eat those eggs with the yolk, Have only whites instead. Yolks are full of cholesterol…” 

– A statement so often made that eating a whole egg almost feels criminal.

 

Just the combination of the words “yolk and cholesterol” are enough to paint a picture of an unhealthy heart in your mind.

 

What if we told you that egg whites are a low-cal, low-carb, low-fat source of high-protein but they are nowhere close to the nutrition that a whole egg can offer?

Egg White vs Whole Egg – Nutritional Facts

Nutritional Comparison Between Egg White And Whole Egg

Essential Nutrients in a Whole Egg

When the world became obsessed with high-protein foods that are low in calories and fat, they forgot about all the other nutrients that are absolutely essential for a fit, healthy body.

 

And when we say nutrients, we mean eggs provide the following essentials in terms of Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI):

 

8%  Vit A
12% Vit B2
35% Bit B5
52% Vit B12
21% Vit D
29% Folate
90%  Selenium

 

A whole egg is capable of delivering all of these, while egg whites can only deliver 9% of Selenium and 6% of Vit. B2 and 1% of B5.

 

And that’s just Part 1 of the conversation.

Are Whole Eggs Bad for Heart?

Part 2 is the whole egg’s long speculated role in heart diseases triggered by high-fat content. 

 

Well, that is BS (how subtle). 

 

No study co-relates consumption of eggs to heart diseases UNLESS you already have one. And one food cannot alone be the cause of a disease. It is always the lifestyle and your total cholesterol intake in the whole day in the long term that decides illnesses. And sometimes genetics of course. 

 

In fact, you can have up to 1 whole egg a day even with prior illnesses and it won’t affect your heart health considerably. Our habits and overconsumption of eggs is what are unhealthy and not the food itself. 

 

Disclaimer: Do not consider the statements made here as medical advice. If you are someone at risk of diabetes, or heart disease, consult a medical expert for the portion of eggs you can have in your meals.
