🍎 Today’s Health Question ~ Are Egg Whites a Healthier Choice than Egg Yokes?

Answer: Egg Whites are a Healthier Choice.

Reason: The research comparing egg whites to whole eggs, consistently shows that egg whites are the preferred option, as their consumption does not raise LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, which is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and is something we see with whole egg consumption. This is likely because the yolk is where the cholesterol and unhealthy fats are. You’ll often hear that egg yolks also contain a variety of “good” nutrients, such as vitamin D, choline, and a pigment called lutein, but this is quite misleading. These nutrients are present in egg yolks, but in extremely small amounts, so the cons of eating egg yolks far outweigh the exaggerated pros.
