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)

I was allergic to eggs big time. Found out it was what the chickens were eating. Soy. Almost all chickens are fed a vegetarian diet of soy. Even the free-range chickens are given supplemental feed. Soy free egg = no egg allergy.

Do hard-boiled eggs leak a significant amount of nutrients into the water? I know normal boiling of food does. But i'm wondering if egg shell keeps everything intact.

Travis_Culp 0 · October 24, 2011 at 5:32 PM

Since most of the nutrients are in the yolk, they'd have to go through the white as well as the shell. I doubt that it's occurring since the white solidifies almost immediately. On the contrary, I think the cholesterol and fat soluble vitamins are... (more)
