Egg Myths Uncovered – #EggMyths Twitter Party

You’re trying to eat as healthy as possible, I know. I am too.

Yet are you, like myself, so tired of all those rumours and myths out there? It’s hard to stay on track when there’s so many distractions trying to lead you off your path, with huge signs that scream ‘x isn’t good for you anymore!’ or ‘eating y is better than z now!’. We all need help separating the truths from myths so that we can go on our way without sway, so that you can make choices based on facts and facts alone.

For example, eggs are one type of food that has been hit with rumours and myths. We know eggs are a fantastic protein source {each one has 6g!}; along with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants like lutein. Eggs also contain a good balance of all the essential amino acids and are low in sodium and carbohydrates.

Yet, I can’t help but to think of all the negative associations which have been mentioned in conjunction with eggs. I think of these whispers each time I’m enjoying my favourite ham and cheese omelette. Or, scarfing down a bacon and egg brunch. It’s that little voice in the back of your mind that questions it all, yet can I please just enjoy this delicious Breakfast Burrito?!

Burnbrae Farms is here to help uncover egg myths:

Have you ever heard someone say that you can tell the quality and freshness of an egg by the colour of it’s yolk? I have. Egg Myth Uncovered – yolk colour DOES NOT indicate egg quality or freshness. The colour is only influenced by what hens eat! 

What about the debate over expiry dates and eggs? My mother used to throw out eggs way before their expiry date, in fear. This is another example of a myth, my friends. Fact is, you can safely eat eggs up to three weeks past the code date – provided they have been stored in the refrigerator (at 0 to 8C) and not in the door where the temperature is less consistent. 

Eggs and cholesterol, we’ve all heard those stories. Verdict? MYTH! According to the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans issued last month, Eggs are recommended for healthy eating. The expert panel stated that cholesterol in diets is no longer a concern {for many years, Health Canada has recognized the evidence that dietary cholesterol has little impact on blood cholesterol}. Instead it’s emphasized to reduce saturated fats, and eggs contain cholesterol but not a large amount of saturated fat. 

You might have heard someone say that brown and white eggs have different nutritional values – yet this isn’t true. When comparing brown to white, there is no difference win nutrition, nor a difference in flavour or cooking. Shell colour is simply reflective of chicken breed!
