Chicken eggs are a very valuable and healthy product that is used in the preparation of baked goods, salads, as well as appetizers, pancakes, mayonnaise, pancakes, spreads, omelets, and scrambled eggs. It is worth noting that the protein is low in calories and fat, helps to lower blood pressure, is rich in B vitamins, and the yolk contains choline (its absence leads to fat deposition in the liver), many healthy fats and lecithin, the main building block for cell membranes.

How to cook eggs deliciously

FoodOboz editorial team shares 4 main ways to check raw eggs for freshness at home and in the store.

1. Shaking

Just shake the egg near your ear. The absence of sounds indicates freshness. And the presence of extra sounds is a sign of a spoiled product.

2. Inspection by light

Fresh chicken eggs

The product should be held up to a light source and inspected through the shell. A fresh egg will always be monochromatic, but speckled eggs indicate that the product is unsuitable.

3. Immersion in water

Pour water into a glass, add a teaspoon of salt, and carefully place the egg in the solution. A fresh product will sink to the bottom and lie on its side. Not quite fresh will rise with a blunt end. But if the product completely floats to the surface, then it is unusable.

4. Check the white and yolk with water

Break the egg and look at the white, it should be viscous, and the yolk should retain its volume. Also pay attention to the product's odor and structure. An unpleasant odor, cloudiness of the protein are signs of an old, unusable product that should not be eaten to avoid poisoning.
