Different Types Of Eggs

1Regular eggs

These are the eggs you find in your supermarket. The hens are raised in cages and provided grain-based feed. The feed is often supplemented with vitamins and minerals. The hens are sometimes even given antibiotics and hormones.

2Organic eggs:

These hens are raised on organic feed and are not given any hormones or antibiotics. However, they are often kept in cages.

3Cage-free eggs

As the term denotes, these hens are not kept in cages and are allowed to roam about freely. But, this does not mean that they are kept in hygienic conditions. Many companies put the hens in packed hen houses or aviary systems, where the hens hardly have any space to perch or scratch in the dirt.

4Free-range eggs

Here, the hens are raised in a natural environment, where they have the option of going outside. They are fed natural feed like plants and insects.

4Enriched eggs

Here, the hens are provided feed rich in Omega-3 fatty acids(mostly flax seeds), as the normal human diet often lacks this important nutrient.

Egg Contains Nutrients That Are Important For Health

EYE

Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants found in egg yolks that can promote eye health as you age.

MUSCLE

Eating 20-30 grams of protein, from food like eggs, promotes muscle recovery following exercise.

BONE

Eggs are one of the only foods that naturally contain vitamin D(41 1U), a nutrient critical for bone health.

BRAIN

Egg is an excellent source of choline- an essential nutrient critical for fetal brain development and brain function.

STOMACH & HEART

Research suggests eggs can be part of a heart-healthy diet and can keep one energized until lunch without the annoying hunger pangs.

BLOOD

Research studies have shown dietary cholesterol (say, from eggs) does not negatively impact blood cholesterol.

Micronutrients in Eggs

Eggs provide important vitamins and minerals. They contain vitamin D (important for the absorption of calcium), phosphorus, vitamin A (for healthy vision, skin, and cell growth), and two B-complex vitamins that your body needs to convert food into energy.

They are a very good source of riboflavin, selenium, and choline. Choline helps boost brain development in utero and may also protect us from age-related memory loss.

Eggs are also high in carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin) that help protect our eyes from macular degeneration.

Top 10 Health Benefits of Eating Eggs

The Structure Of Egg

An egg from a hen consists of approximately 2/3 egg white and 1/3 egg yolk

Nutritive value of eggs

Egg is a wholesome, nutritious food with high nutrient density because vitamins, essential amino acids and minerals Selenium, Choline and zinc etc. alongwith various other important ingredients so crucial for growth and good health.

Yolk Colour

The diet of the hen determines the colour of the egg yolk. If the hen is mainly fed by yellow and orange-pigmented food like Maize and soyabean, this is the colour that is more prominent in the egg yolk. A relatively colourless feed, gives almost colourless yolks.

Size

Not all hens lay eggs of the same size. The size of an egg depends on several factors, for example the breed, the weight, the age, the feed of the hen and the environment in which the hen was brought up.

The Eggshell

The shell is built of 8-10,000 pores, which ensures that oxygen can penetrate and CO2 and other gases can escape. The shell represents about 10 % of the weight of the egg and consists mainly of calcium carbonate and calcium phosphate. The shell thickness and thus the strength depends on egg size, breed, the age of the hen, and feed composition.
Only the outer layer of the shell is coloured. The colour of the shell can be white or brown – depending on the breed. A white hen lays white eggs and brown hens lay brown eggs.

The Egg White

The egg white represents approx. 60 % of the weight of the egg and consists of 88 % water and 12 % dry matter, primarily protein. The white is divided into three parts: an inner and an outer liquid layer, and in between those a liquid layer with a thicker consistency. The white prevents external bacteria from penetrating the yolk.

The Egg Yolk

The yolk has a much lower water content than the egg white, just under 50 %. The yolk represents about 28 % of the weight of the egg and consists of approx. 2/3 fat and 1/3 protein. The fat content consists primarily of triglycerides, cholesterol, and the phospholipid lecithin. The amount of fat and cholesterol and the composition of the fat is influenced by the diet of the hen. The yolk is held in place by two screw-shaped egg white strands – the chalazae.
