Eggs Allergy

Laid by various bird species eggs are a common food item consisting of a protective eggshell, albumen (egg white), and vitellus (egg yolk). Chicken/hen eggs, duck and quail are the most commonly consumed eggs.

Whole eggs and egg yolks and contain large amounts of protein and choline and are used in various recipes. While eggs do contain a high nutritional value, a few health issues linked to eggs include egg intolerance and allergies to egg proteins, cholesterol and salmonella contamination.

Used in baking, mayonnaise, sauces, mousses, margarine, meringues, ice cream and as a binder to many processed foods they’re a versatile ingredient. Eggs can be easily separated into the white and yolk with sometimes only part of the egg being used.

Egg sensitivity

An egg intolerance or sensitivity is where the body presents digestive symptoms after consuming egg products. Despite being less severe than egg allergy, the condition can still be uncomfortable and embarrassing for those suffering. An individual can sometimes be sensitive to the egg white or egg yolk, but not affected by the other.
