Eggs… we all eat them. In fact, we eat a staggering number of them. Egg laying chickens in America produce around 75 billion eggs per year which is 10% of the world’s production. While many of those end up on our breakfast table or baked into our recipes, many more make their way to the prepared foods or the food service industry.
From a nutritional standpoint, these little wonders add an enormous amount of value to your daily diet. Chicken eggs supply all essential amino acids for humans. They also provide many other vitamins including vitamin A, many B vitamins, iron, and potassium.
From a culinary perspective, eggs are nothing short of magical. Apart from sugar, they might be the most versatile ingredient in your kitchen. Like sugar, preparing them in different ways and with varying temperature and amount of air can completely transform the finished product.
