Egg Yolk vs Egg White? [Are Eggs bad for cholesterol?]

🦶Should you eat the egg yolk? How many calories are in the egg yolk? How much protein is in the egg whites? We review whether you should get rid of the egg yolk!🦶

Egg yolks and egg whites have different nutrient profiles. The yolk contains most of the egg’s vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin K, B vitamins, iron, selenium, and phosphorus. It also contains healthy fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, including omega-3 fatty acids.

On the other hand, the egg white is primarily composed of water and protein, specifically albumin.

For many years, eggs were believed to be detrimental to cholesterol levels due to their high cholesterol content. However, more recent research has shown that dietary cholesterol minimally impacts blood cholesterol levels for most individuals. The main determinant of blood cholesterol levels is the saturated and trans fats in your diet, rather than the cholesterol found in food.

For most people, consuming eggs in moderation as part of a balanced diet is not associated with an increased risk of heart disease or adverse effects on cholesterol levels. However, individuals with specific health conditions, such as familial hypercholesterolemia or diabetes, may need to limit their dietary cholesterol intake more strictly.
