what are the risks of contracting salmonella by mixing raw egg whites into your shake ? been meaning to do that but i'm alittle skurred by it
read the article it talks about that
dont eslap me son. o and cliffs.
k that's reassuring bro.
mercola is a fucking worthless hack I cant believe anyone cites that bullshit like its a credible source for anything
I don't see any benefits being shown here apart from quoting the raw eaters, which isn't much.
he didn't really mention any benefits over cooked eggs...did he?

Egg proteins contribute substantially to the daily nitrogen allowances in Western countries and are generally considered to be highly digestible. However, information is lacking on the true ileal digestibility of either raw or cooked egg protein. The recent availability of stable isotope-labeled egg protein allowed determination of the true ileal digestibility of egg protein by means of noninvasive tracer techniques. Five ileostomy patients were studied, once after ingestion of a test meal consisting of 25 g of cooked 13C- and 15N-labeled egg protein, and once after ingestion of the same test meal in raw form. Ileal effluents and breath samples were collected at regular intervals after consumption of the test meal and analyzed for 15N- and 13C-content, respectively. The true ileal digestibility of cooked and raw egg protein amounted to 90.9% (cooked) and 51.3% (raw) respectively. A significant negative correlation (r = 0.92, P < 0.001) was found between the 13C-recovery in breath and the recovery of exogenous N in the ileal effluents. In summary, using the 15N-dilution technique we demonstrated that the assimilation of cooked egg protein is efficient, albeit incomplete, and that the true ileal digestibility of egg protein is significantly enhanced by heat-pretreatment. A simple 13C-breath test technique furthermore proved to be a suitable alternative for the evaluation of the true ileal digestibility of egg protein........
Egg white protein is generally considered to be less digestible than heat-pretreated egg white protein. In this study, it was shown that after ingestion of 25 g of raw egg protein, almost 50% is malabsorbed over 24 h. The higher digestibility of cooked egg protein presumably results from structural changes in the protein molecule induced by heating, thereby enabling the digestive enzymes to gain broader access to the peptide bonds. It has been suggested that the reduced digestibility of raw egg white is at least partially related to the presence of trypsin inhibitors in raw egg white.
slim to none. I think about 1 in 30,000 have it.
there are other reasons not to have raw eggs, like biotin deficiency it can cause and more importantly, protein isn't anywhere near as bioavailable in raw eggs as it is in cooked eggs, by like half
i thought eating raw eggs creates a biotin deficiency over time
edit, what drew said
I make egg nog every year for xmas with raw eggs, no salmonella yet.
I use raw eggs, but more for texture/taste rather than protein content
just buy the liquid egg white extract at walmart and sip on it throughout the day, tastes like milk. You get chunks every now and then which makes me gag though
I add a couple raw eggs to my shakes when I'm trying to gain weight.
I bet that extra 90 calories really helps you pack on the size
Yep. It's the sole difference between my bulk and cut diet
What I meant to say, was unless I'm dieting and don't need the cals, I add a few to my shakes.
