Let's Get Egg-ducated about Eggology Egg Whites!

Eggology egg whites have a simple, pure look. A beautiful snow white, fluffy piece of food that tastes delicious and is ever-so naturally sweet. Not to mention a lean source of protein, with no cholesterol or fat. When I think about egg whites, I think they are a great choice for any meal (I could eat an egg white omelet or scramble any time of day), and also prefer to bake with them instead of whole eggs, rendering my sweet creations just a little more savory and healthy.

Interested in egg-ducating myself about egg whites, I stumbled upon the wikipedia entry egg whites. In doing so, I discovered some impressive things about egg whites. More than just as a great food, did you know that these are some uses listed for egg whites:
  • In schools it is often used to teach pupils how to test for protein using Biuret reagent.
  • It is used to remove sediments from champagne and beer and to clarify broths.
  • It was used in the emulsion of traditional photographic paper.
  • It was used in medieval medicine to treat wounds and broken bones.
  • It can be used as a base for waterproof glues.
  • It can be combined with gasoline to make a gelled incendiary compound similar to napalm.

Impressed? Me too! You can order Eggology egg whites from the convenience of your home or find them at a store near you!
