Eggs are usually laid by the female of different species, including birds, reptiles, a few mammals and even fish. Eggs have been consumed by humans for thousands of years, most commonly chicken eggs, though duck and quail eggs are also consumed. An egg usually consists of a protective eggshell, egg white (albumen), egg yolk (vitellus) and various thin membranes. Eggs can be found in many colours like white, speckled (red), and brown too, although this is just largely a cosmetic issue, and has no effect on egg quality or taste. Chicken eggs are widely used in many types of dishes, both sweet and savoury, due to their significant amount of protein content, including many baked goods. Some of the most common methods of preparing eggs are fried, scrambled, omelettes, poached, soft-boiled, hard-boiled and pickled. Some people consume eggs raw also, although this is not recommended for people who may be susceptible to salmonelloses, such as the elderly, pregnant women or the infirm. When it comes to cooking egg can be used in various forms. Egg yolks act as an emulsifier in kitchens and hence used as a thickener in dishes like custards. Egg whites contain protein, but little to no fat, and so can be used for cooking separately. Due to the protein in egg whites, they form foams when whipped and can be used in desserts such as meringues and mousse. Every part of the egg is considered edible, though eggshells are generally discarded, but can be used as a food additive to deliver calcium also. Eggs need to be carefully stored, as improperly handled egg may contain elevated levels of Salmonella bacteria and can cause severe food poisoning. Eggs can be refrigerated to preserve taste and texture. Unwashed and unbroken eggs can be left unrefrigerated for several months. Eggs can also be preserved by treating it with salt as salt draws water out of bacteria and moulds, preventing its growth. Pickled eggs also last longer. Pickled eggs are first boiled then immersed in a mixture of vinegar, salt, and spices, such as ginger or allspice. Buy eggs now in wholesale from WeMENA.
