All About Eggs!
Eggs had some tough years as health experts fretted about the high cholesterol content. But after a revision of the American Heart Association’s guidelines in 2000, the health benefits of eggs seemed to outweigh the concerns. The AHA says healthy adults can enjoy an egg per day and easily remain within the daily cholesterol limit.
Eggs provide a good source of protein and the vitamins Biotin and Vitamin A. The cholesterol found within eggs can affect cholesterol levels in the blood. But, cholesterol in eggs doesn’t affect cholesterol levels as much as other saturated and trans fats in a diet. On top of that, eggs are also inexpensive, accessible, and palatable for many people.
