The quest for the eggless egg
What if there were an egg that wasn’t an egg? Scientists in the US are trying to create a plant-based “egg” for vegans. The current version contains half a dozen ingredients, mainly pea protein, but is not getting high grades from chefs:
TIME: Eggless Eggs Exist and This Is What They Taste Like
I myself don’t fancy industrially produced ersatz eggs with many secret ingredients, a taste of “grass” and a chef rating of 5/10. I see no health reasons either.
Those who are not vegans can safely eat regular, good old eggs, at least as long as the chickens have been treated well (egg production only aiming for cheap eggs quickly becomes unethical).
Eggs have developed to perfection over millions of years of evolution. There is no more nutritious food and the old 80’s fear of cholesterol has proven completely unfounded. Eggs provide a good cholesterol profile, good weight and a good blood sugar. Proper health and nutrition pills!
So how many eggs can you eat without risking that it turns harmful? I’ll say what I usually say: Preferably eat no more than 36 eggs per day.
How many do you eat?
