    Drinking Egg Beaters Raw

    Hey, i tried searching through the forum and on google, and couldnt find any solid facts. So im here to ask.

    Does anyone know if drinking egg beaters raw, out of the carton is fine. I dont really like eggs, but i want the protein, and its cheap.

    Thanks

    Some say it's okay to consume them raw because they're pasteurized, but I wouldn't go by that....ALWAYS cook your eggs.

    It should be a whole lot safer to drink than raw eggs because the egg beaters are pasteurized. I would reccomend to cook them just to be on the safe side.

    This has been covered before. Salmonella is outside the egg, on the eggshell, so if you simply run hot water over it, it should be safe. You get poisoning if what you eat comes into contact with the eggshell (if the bacteria are there).

    Also, I've read several times that egg protein is more bioavailable when it's cooked. Something like 70% bioavailability when raw, 97% when cooked. Of course, you lose some nutrients when you cook anything, but if you're going for protein, cook it.

    Of course pasturized egg whites are safe to drink. I drink 8 oz of them per day- been doing it for years.

    In my opinion, you should be eating whole eggs. There's nothing dangerous about egg yolks, and plenty that's beneficial. Of course, that's been covered a bunch of times too.

    I'd go on the safe side and just cook then eat them.

    I would cook them to be safe but drinking them raw should be ok because they are pasturized
