Egg Matching Foods:
Almost all nutrients required for human well-being is inside the egg, with the exception of vitamin C. Chickens, like most mammals ranging from dogs to polar bears, have an endogenous ability to make their own vitamin C. Human beings, on the other hand, cannot, and need external supplementation from fruits and vegetables.
The egg is a highly nutritious and functional food. It contains one of the highest quality proteins you can buy. It is also low in sodium, and contains a large variety of vitamins and minerals. Egg protein has just the right mixture of essential amino acids needed by humans to build a strong body.
Eggs and Allergies:
Egg protein is a leading cause of food allergies, along with cow's milk. The majority of the protein is found in the egg whites. Eliminating eggs from the diet is a good screening test in cases of suspected allergies. It is important that any such trial period be at least 21 days long to allow ample time for the allergen to be washed out of the body. Reappearance of the allergy when egg consumption is resumed will serve as confirmatory test of such allergy.
