ive seen studies showing that you only get about 50% of the calories/nutrients from raw eggs because u need to heat it to denature the proteins which happens at 134 degrees
I thought that Protein being denatured was a bad thing. This was one of the reasons that I wanted to do this. Doesn’t an egg lose Protein value when it gets cooked? So, soft boiled eggs have more protein than hard boiled eggs and raw eggs have the most. That’s what I have heard.
Can anybody confirm that I am completely wrong and should keep eating soft boiled eggs?
sorry i cant find the study but basically it was saying that when cooked about 90% of the protein/nutrients were available for digestion. when its raw only about 50% is[/quote]
You people do realize that heat isn’t the only way to denature protein, correct? pH can also do it (hint: your stomach acid).
Is there a reason why you think raw eggs are resistant to denaturation by stomach acid?
edit: for what it’s worth, I drink a dozen raw eggs a day.
