The Nutrition Myths To Ignore About Raw Eggs

There are two big misconceptions about raw eggs. First, raw eggs contain more protein than cooked eggs, and second, consuming eggs raw offers more advantages overall.

In both cases, the opposite may actually be true. The difference in protein is marginal, but eggs ultimately offer around the same amount of protein, whether raw or cooked.

You may actually get more protein from cooked eggs because raw eggs can diminish protein absorption. Cooking animal products changes the structure of the protein.

It’s also not necessarily any more advantageous to consume eggs raw than cooked. Cooked eggs generally are safer as they pose less risk of getting you sick.

In addition to these nutritional concerns, consuming raw eggs can cause salmonella contamination.
