When it comes to the best and cheapest food on earth, nothing is better than eggs.

Whether boiled eggs, tea eggs, fried rice with eggs, scrambled eggs with tomatoes Eggs have conquered almost all Chinese stomachs.

Eggs, which are favored by thousands of people, contain a variety of amino acids and proteins, which are very beneficial to the human body.

The data show that every 100g of eggs contain 12.58g protein, which is very similar to human protein, so it is easy to be absorbed by the human body.

In addition, eggs are also rich in lecithin, steroids, yolk, calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamins and other nutrients, which greatly meet the daily needs of the human body.

Of course, the key point is that eggs are cheap!

However, this kind of egg is too "perfect", people also have a lot of doubts about eggs, and it can't stop a lot of gossip.

Eggs, really can't eat more?

Some people think that because egg yolk contains high cholesterol, eating egg yolk will lead to high cholesterol, so it is not suitable to eat more.

But usually healthy people don't need to pay attention to their dietary cholesterol intake, and there is no more evidence that eating more cholesterol can lead to hyperlipidemia or heart disease.

In addition, dietary restrictions on cholesterol have been abolished as early as in the dietary guidelines for Chinese residents 2016.

So how much is appropriate?

According to the latest guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in a healthy lifestyle in China, the following suggestions are given for eating eggs:

1. For healthy adults without dyslipidemia, it is recommended to eat 3-6 eggs a week.

2. For hypercholesterolemia and cardiovascular high-risk groups, it is recommended that the daily intake of cholesterol is less than 300mg, about 1 egg yolk.

Of course, these are just suggestions. If you prefer foods with high cholesterol such as animal offal, seafood and red meat, it is also recommended to reduce the number of eggs you eat a week.

However, if you don't eat enough milk, meat, fish and shrimp for dinner, or you need to supplement protein, you might as well eat more eggs.

Although eggs are nutritious and delicious, it is not recommended to eat more of these two kinds of eggs:

First, raw eggs

Some people have the habit of eating eggs raw and feel that it can nourish yin, moisten dryness and nourish blood, but there are many potential safety hazards.

Raw eggs that have not been sterilized at high temperature may also contain parasites. Regular consumption will greatly increase the risk of infection with parasites.

In addition, raw eggs contain a lot of bacteria, such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella, which are likely to be infected by bacteria after eating, resulting in digestive diseases such as food poisoning, diarrhea and abdominal distension.

Especially children and those with weak spleen and stomach are prone to this problem.

Second, do not eat dead eggs

In the folk, stillborn eggs, also known as wool eggs, are a local delicacy in Jiangsu and Zhejiang. Some chickens in wool eggs have even grown chicken feathers.

Stillborn eggs are very controversial. Some people think that wool eggs are not only a rare delicacy, but also rich in nutrition. Especially the eggs boiled with boy's urine, the nutrition is amazing. Some people think the smell is bad and the eggs are difficult to swallow.

However, the wool egg is not as magical as expected. In fact, there is not much nutrition in it.

This is because in the process of egg hatching, the nutrition inside has been almost absorbed by the fetus, and a large number of bacteria, fungi and even parasites are gathered.

If you eat it regularly, you will not only not get the nutrition that eggs should have, but also may have bacterial infection.

Native eggs, higher nutritional value?

Some people think that since eggs are so healthy and high, wouldn't it be better to choose some high-quality eggs?

The native eggs on the market were born to meet these consumer needs. The so-called native chicken refers to those chickens raised in free range and fed on insects, vegetables and weeds.

Many people think that the native eggs produced by these native chickens will be better than those "foreign eggs" raised in captivity and eating feed.

But in fact, the nutritional value of these two kinds of eggs is not big, just slightly more than protein, carbohydrate and cholesterol.

Of course, maybe native eggs may contain some flavor substances, and the taste will be slightly better than ordinary eggs.
