  • Raw Eggs (Pasteurized)

    Anyone here drink the raw egg beaters (or egg whites) right out of the carton? I saw on TV that they pasteurize them because they know bodybuilders (who don't have the time to cook\eat 32oz of eggs) will chug them down.

    I bought 8 32oz cartons of Egg Whites Beaters (currently doing 1000 calories, 80% from protein for 2 weeks, as a Protein Sparing Modified Fast, recommended by Lyle McDonald, who wrote The Ketogenic Diet) and plan on downing 1 of them a day (about 500 calories) for 2 weeks before going back to normal Primal (60% fat, 25% protein, 15% carbs)

        I eat raw yolks all the time.

        I typically don't eat raw whites because of the avidin (which Mark mentions in the post that Hugo linked to).

          I eat raw eggs and never had a problem. I don't buy mine at a store though, but from my neighbour. They're claimed salmonella free, though.

          I eat them raw on top of nattou. I rarely eat cooked yolks, actually, but I do prefer cooked whites.

            I rarely just eat a raw egg, but I make mayo with raw eggs, mousse, meringue... (cookie dough);the key thing is to wash the shells before you crack them. I have never been afraid of raw egs and I have never gotten ill from them.

              If I was going to do raw eggs, I'd just have some of my organic eggs. I'm not a fan of processed foods... But in all reality, I always cook my eggs. It makes the nutrients more bioavailable, from what I read at least.

                Oh wow. I never knew about this. I need to step up my nutrient-article-forum-etc reading game. Did that make you squeamish when you first tried it?

                  I eat real eggs (usually mixed with something else like coconut milk). No fear of raw. Definite fear of frankenfood egg beaters :P
