#EggChat Recap Nutrition Facts and Egg Myths “Cracked”

Posted on October 31, 2012 by rebeccascritchfield

I was so excited to work with Egg Nutrition Center and Incredible Eggs on a Twitter chat to discuss egg nutrition, the latest research, and some myths or misinformation about eggs.

We had a fabulous turn out and a ton of fun! In case you missed it, I thought I would share some of our chatter and the useful links I provided.

Questions:

  1. What are some of the most common things, true or untrue, you hear when it comes to dietary cholesterol?
  2. Do you eat/recommend “whites only” or do you eat the whole egg?
  3. What questions do you get about egg nutrition and what do you tell people?
  4. What are some of your favorite recipes and ways of making eggs?

Most people commented on egg myths like:

  • Don’t eat the yolk.
  • Only eat eggs once or twice a week.
  • Avoid eggs due to cholesterol.

I “cracked” these myths by sharing some links to the research and nutrition science of eggs.

Here are some of my favorite tips, recipes, and resources from the chat:

What do you think of eggs? How do you help people bust “myths” and what are your favorite ways of eating them. Share your thoughts and recipes in the comments.
