Fun Facts

  1. Eggs are the perfect fare for breakfast, lunch, or dinner (in moderation, and usually when paired with other foods).
  2. Most of egg’s bad reputation is due to the cholesterol in the yolk. According to the American Heart Association, one large egg yolk has about 186 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol, and it’s recommended that the average person limit dietary cholesterol intake to 300 mg per day.
  3. The reputation of eggs has largely been restored because study after study has found that dietary cholesterol has a much smaller impact on cholesterol levels than was once believed.
  4. Prized for their low-calorie protein punch, eggs are an excellent snack or meal for anyone who wants to lose or manage their weight.
  5. Egg whites have only 15 calories per egg, no cholesterol, and no saturated fat, which makes them an extremely diet-friendly food.
