Abstract

Abstract

Egg protein has the highest nutritive quality as compared to any other dietary protein. An egg is said to be a complete food because of its nutritional benefits, such as vitamins, minerals, proteins, best quality of fat, etc.

Health Benefits from Eating Eggs

Who does not know the benefits of an egg? I think everyone is familiar with this nutritious white diamond of the food group. It is a rich source of all nutrients except vitamin C (ascorbic acid). An egg of 50 g weight contains the following:

  1. Calorie - 85.
  2. Protein - 6.5 g (13 % of RDA).
  3. Fat - 6.5 g.
  4. Calcium - 30 mg.
  5. Phosphorus - 110 mg.
  6. Iron - 1.05 mg.
  7. Carotene - 210 mcg.
  8. Thiamine - 0.05 mg.
  9. Riboflavin - 0.20 mg.
  10. Niacin - 0.05 mg.
  11. Folic acid - 39.15 mg.
  12. Amino acid - 1.06 g.
  13. Vitamin B12 (in egg white) - 0.1 mg, (in egg yolk) - 2.2 mg.

How Is It Beneficial for Us?

Nutrition experts agree that eggs are very healthy for our body, as they are a good source of high-quality proteins, which are essential for building and maintaining strong muscles.
