It's possible, or it may be a coincidence. Wait a few days and try it again to see if you get the same reaction. Usually, if there's an egg allergy, it's to the protein in the whites - specifically avidin (which is disabled when cooked), not... (more)

I eat raw eggs on occasion -- usually 3-8 cracked into a glass, and chugged. Avidin will definitely bind to biotin - it's extremely "biotin hungry". Biotin is water-soluble and actual DRI is extremely low. Basically, everyone gets enough biotin... (more)

I think it's blood (fertilized egg perhaps?). Just toss the red part if you can, otherwise toss all of it and start over. You might want to crack each egg individually into a glass before adding it to your bowl.

Considering the egg whites are mostly water and a little bit of protein, and I only needed to use the white (for instance, a recipe) does it matter if it comes from a conventional egg? They are much cheaper, and they make slushies nice and foamy. (more)
