Can you cook just the egg yolk to get all the biotin from it?

Can you cook just the egg yolk to get all the biotin from it?

Sure: All of the biotin found in an egg is stored in the yolk, so cooking and eating only the yolk would be an efficient way to increase biotin intake.

Is it healthy to eat egg yolk. Or should I only consume egg white.

Is it healthy to eat egg yolk. Or should I only consume egg white.

Increased TMAO: Dietary science shows many correlations, but we lack the means to demonstrate causation, which means we really don't know. The traditional bugaboo about egg yolk is that it is high in cholesterol.

That's baloney: Acne is unrelated to diet, lifestyle, or body temperature. You're a grown woman, Zuleika, and you owe it to yourself both to be discerning (as you are) and to manage your acne.

Is egg yolk healthy if everyday we consume one whole egg a day? Fry or boiled ?

Boiled doesn't add any extra fat (unless u add butter/margerine); if frying, use non-stick pan with minimal fat (canola oil works well). Eating oatmeal or bran cereal as well will help absorb some of the chol in egg. ...Read more
