    Raw Egg vs Cooked Egg Nutritional Value

    I couldnt find the exact thread but i remember seeing someone was saying that....

    one cup of egg whites cooked = 25 grams of protein
    one cup of egg whites raw = 12grams of protein

    i dont understand how uncooked egg whites would have half the protein???
    or is what this person was saying incorrect??

    They both have the same amount of protein. You body's ability to digest raw egg whites is not a good.

    no i would say he is incorrect, enzymes digest the same when the egg is raw than when the egg is cooked and there is the same amount of protein in both, protein doesnt get destroyed with heat

    in10city is correct as usual. don't think you can drink raw eggs and get the same benefit as eating the same eggs cooked.

    tell him that egg whites straight out of the shell have like half the protein but if he buys egg whites in the carton those are good to go as long as they have been pasturised (sp)

    They found that 90 per cent of the cooked egg was digested compared to just 51 per cent of the raw egg (The Journal of Nutrition, vol 128, p 1716).

    Pasteurization at 130 degrees and change for a few minutes is not going to produce the same denaturing effect as cooking would. If it did, it would start to curdle.

    Raw eggs versus cooked eggs

    I have been looking for the nutritional value of raw eggs versus cooked and have found nothing. Unadulterated amino acids which we find in raw eggs have to contain more protein than cooked eggs in my opinion. Cooking destroys the nutritional value of most food or at least diminishes it. I like to drink raw eggs in a small glass of OJ and swallow them whole after a strenuous work out. The last taste in your mouth is the OJ. Make sure the eggs are fresh, range fed being best, salmonella is usually carried in the feces of the eggs and would be on the shell. If anybody has more info it would be appreciated! I've been a clinical nutritionist and chiropractor for the last 30 years.

    I think you shouldn't worry about this and that you should eat cooked eggs.

    Boiled eggs are the least caloric way to eat eggs, I believe.

    I'm lucky enough to have in-laws who have a farm with chickens. They give me a massive amounts of free-range organic eggs every month or so. I boil them up and pickle them in one part white vinegar, one part water. Great snack!

    It isn't the nutritional value that comes into question. Read the study in the link, the title is pretty clear:

    "Digestibility of Cooked and Raw Egg Protein in Humans as Assessed by Stable Isotope Techniques"
    Truth hurts, but ignorance hurts more.

    There's a link in this very thread. Look harder.


    Unadulterated amino acids which we find in raw eggs have to contain more protein than cooked eggs in my opinion.
    Stating incorrect facts and saying it's an opinion makes no sense. Dusseldorf is the capital of Kentucky in my opinion. See how that means nothing?


    Cooking destroys the nutritional value of most food or at least diminishes it.
    Were talking about eggs here.

    I would shy away from raw eggs. Much much higher chance of food poisoning.

I like to drink raw eggs in a small glass of OJ and swallow them whole after a strenuous work out. The last taste in your mouth is the OJ. Make sure the eggs are fresh, range fed being best, salmonella is usually carried in the feces of the eggs and would be on the shell. If anybody has more info it would be appreciated! I've been a clinical nutritionist and chiropractor for the last 30 years.
    Cooking denatures the protein, making it easier for enzymes to digest them. This is most likely why we digest more protein from cooked egg whites than raw.

    i dont understand how uncooked egg whites would have half the protein???
    or is what this person was saying incorrect??

    actually the protein in cooked eggs was actually 40% more bio-available to the body than when uncooked. In practical terms, this means that you’d have to eat seven raw eggs to absorb the amount of protein available in five cooked eggs. So cooking actually ehances the biological value (BV) of eggs, versus degrading it.

    Eating raw eggs can also interfere with the absorption of a key vitamin: biotin (also known as “Vitamin H.”) Raw egg whites contain a protein called avidin, which binds with biotin in the gut and prevents it from being absorbed by the body. However, cooking the eggs deactivates the avidin. So long-term and regular consumption of raw egg whites may contribute to biotin deficiencies.
