I think we've all been thinking about which one is healthier, the egg whites or the yolk? Sometimes there are articles that tell the egg whites better, because less cholesterol than the yolk. But there is also an article that tells the yolk to be healthier, because it contains ingredients that are not in egg white. Hmm .. Let's see all the contents and properties of egg whites and yolk.
White Egg and Yellow Egg: Which Is Better?
The average egg yellow contains 210 mg of cholesterol, while the egg whites do not contain direct cholesterol. However, taking 210 mg of cholesterol for a day is still considered ok compared to the proper intake, ie 300mg a day.
Yellow eggs contain 1.6g saturated fat and 2.7g unsaturated fats. Egg white does not contain fat. Excessive saturated fats need to be controlled to reduce the risk of heart disease, but unsaturated fats are important. This is because it plays an important role in a healthy diet.
Both egg yolk and egg yolks contain protein, with 4g in egg whites and 2.7g in egg yolks. The protein content in an egg is considered complete and provides a complete amino acid for the body. Protein also helps to reduce hunger, preventing over eating habits.
Vitamins and Mineral Salts
Some good vitamins and minerals are contained in both parts of the egg. Egg whites contain 8% of the body's needed riboflavin. Egg yolks contain 5% body requirements for Vitamin A, 14% Vitamin B-12 required in daily necessities.
Once seen as an egg yolk has a more unhealthy ingredient, in fact the egg yolk also has other supplements that are better for health. For example the egg yolk also contains lecithin and healthy omega-3 fats.
