Hi guys, was just wondering whether anyone knows whether cooking omega 3 eggs is actually okay… It’s all well and good to have them like 50% omega 3 but shouldnt the general theory of not heating poly oils (like flax, fish oil) hold? Or, is it more like the fat just in a piece of salmon. Either way if someone could clear it up it’d be good.
Cook the albumen and eat the yolks raw. It’s a bit of a hassle, but it’s definitely the optimal way.
How about assuming one doesn’t want to do that? Or one doesnt have time etc etc.

The Omega 3 in eggs are much less sensitive to heat than the ones in, say flax oil. You should therefore be on the safe side cooking the eggs. Yet, you lose some other interesting nutrients.
If you are really worried about it and pressed for time make them sunny side up with runny yolks. Best way to eat them anyway. Soft boiled is great too.
I’m a big fan of overeasy :<
Thanks for that though guys, I pretty much assumed that but wanted to clarify and make sure etc.
The important thing is you are consuming the healthy eggs,which you are. Everything else is details, but advice here is solid.
