    About Quail Eggs and their benefits - Discussion

    Hello everyone!

    Hope to get your attention a little bit on this particular topic - Quail Eggs & their benefits
    Seems really interesting....
    Just asking about whether you've heard of quail eggs and their benefits....

    Began to be pretty popular here in my country with many "cures" being attributed to them. Just wondering if they help to our body-sculpting / power-training process at all or are just plain healthy and therefore recommended

    Thanks a lot - any insight or discussion is welcome!

    Some links for the start

    Benefit: they are delicious.

    Asian supermarkets often carry them. Yes, they are delicious. Probably not anything more magical than other kinds of eggs nutrition wise, but definitely tasty.

    It would be interesting to know if in the comparison data in the article above if the quail eggs were being compared to battery eggs or free range. I think that would make the difference not so dramatic.

    I think you should really read the links i gave you, it's not just about their taste & little-ness
    They are really considered a Super-Food in terms of their nutritional facts.
    They began to be easily available in my country and that's why i opened this thread, to find more about them

    It's very interesting you mention them and how they delicious they are, cori.

    When I was younger, I loved going back to China and eating quail eggs. They tasted SOOOO much better than regular eggs. But now that I go back there and try them, they taste like regular chicken eggs that I can buy at my local grocery store in the US. And whenever I buy the ones at Asian stores here in America, it's the same. The only time I've tasted a truly delicious quail egg was when I was buying chicken eggs off a guy who was raising them in his backyard, along with some quails and pheasants, and he gave me a quail egg to try. I think it really matters what the quails are fed in order for them to be truly tasty. But that is my n=1.

    Re: their nutritional information,

    In China, it's understood that one tiny quail egg amounts to as much nutrition as a chicken egg. But looking at the micronutrient breakdown, I feel that it is not any more nutritious per egg. Unless you start going into the grams and ounces.

    I did read them. My question was this: Was the comparison done between quail eggs and battery chicken eggs or free range? The nutritional profiles are very different. Battery chicken eggs are much less nutrient rich.

    I'm not saying that quail eggs aren't awesome. I eat them often.

    They are so darn teeny. Can you do anything with them besides foo foo little appetizers?

    The farmers market vendor where I get my grass fed dairy and pastured eggs often has quail eggs. DH and I have discussed them, but always decide they look too fussy for every day food.
