    When in the egg section of wholefoods I often look at the containers of egg whites and think - what did they do with all those yolks? Why can't they put them in cartons and put them up there next to the EggBeaters for us Primal folks? Probably go into animal feed or protein powder or the garbage ... and we probably wouldn't want the yolks from eggs processed on a large scale like that anyway.

      They extract lecithin from yolks. Wouldn't surprise me if that's where they end up!

        Thanks for all the responses. I think you are right. If the yolk gets cooked every once in a while no biggie. I am taking much more significant steps to IMPROVE my health elsewhere and this is an area that could become a bit nit-picky. I WILL start frying my eggs so they are still runny though just to avoid cooking them hard like I usually do. I also need to try the soft boiled method...never tried it, but my sister loves them that way.

          If Sally Fallon has any credibility:

          Hi Sally, I have a question for you about oxidized cholesterol. I know from the WAPF site that one of the many reasons low-fat milk is so unhealthy is due to the fact that powdered milk is added, which contains oxidized cholesterol (which can cause heart disease, not saturated fats as we’ve been led to believe). But I’ve also heard we shouldn’t cook our egg yolks, or they will oxidize as well – is this true? Also, I know raw milk is best, and it’s what my family drinks, however I’ve been suggesting to my readers that if they don’t drink raw milk, to at least drink whole milk. But if heating/pasteurizing the milk oxidizes the cholesterol, should I then be suggesting they drink raw milk or NO milk?

          Sally’s reply:

          The confusion comes about by what causes cholesterol in food to oxidize–it is not pasteurization or cooking (scrambled eggs are fine), but the spray drying of milk or egg yolks when they are forced through a very tiny hole at high temperature and pressure to make powdered milk and eggs. Powdered milk is added to 1% and 2% milk to give it body.

          Regarding milk, the more I learn about pasteurization, the more I realize how harmful it is (for other reasons than the oxidation of cholesterol). And now most milk is ultra-pasteurized, especially most organic milk.

          I think if people can’t get raw milk, the next best thing is pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized) cream diluted with water. The fats are much less prone to damage by pasteurization than the water portion of the milk, and at least the fats in cream have not been homogenized. This is what I did for my family when we could not get raw milk. We used diluted cream on porridge and in cooking.

          Hope this helps! Sally

                I know about salmonella and eggs. I have heard about cooking yolks. The word was/is cooking yolks is fine as long as you don't break the yolk. Where does that originate? Been so long since I heard that that I don't remember who said it.

                I like eggs. I usually have two (quantity) gallon sized jars filled with pickled eggs--different recipes. I eat eggs hard boiled, shirred, and fried over-easy. I make an egg salad with bard boiled eggs and sour cream. Oops---dairy. The shirred and sunny side up go against the cautions I heard long ago and some of the things preached at us today. Sorry. I like eggs.

                I stay healthy just about every way I can, but I am strictly hedonistic when it comes to eggs and tea. (Not a combination).

                  I forgot to mention that a low estimate of my weekly egg consumption would be three dozen. I have seen a lot of decades and I feel fine and do well. Just some structural damage caused by being involved in governmental clashes and forcing my body to do dangerous things for fun. Other problems were caused by allopaths---eg. deafness being the main one.
