Eggs are considered one of the most versatile ingredients in the kitchen. They are usually combined with other ingredients, and they serve to add flavor, color, emulsify/thicken, bind, foam, and many others that improves the dish. Eggs are often used in processed meats, bread- and pasta-making, salad dressings, and desserts!
Not only are eggs multifunctional, it’s also one of the most nutrient-dense foods. One large egg consists of 7g complete protein and 5g fat. Eggs contain all the fat-soluble Vitamins (A, D, E, K), some B-Vitamins (B2, B6, B5, B7, B9, and B12), and some minerals like Selenium, Iodine, Zinc, and Iron which are all essential in maintaining optimal health. Eggs also contain Choline which is beneficial in keeping the nerves healthy; and Lutein, and Zeaxanthin which helps boost our immune system and fight against free radicals to prevent certain diseases such as cancer.
Knowing the benefits of eggs and their functions, no wonder a typical Filipino breakfast always has a piece of egg! We’re not even EGGS-aggerating here. Plus, it’s in-EGGS-pensive compared to other protein sources.
