Interesting facts about eggs

View interesting facts about eggs. 

First Egg shell is composed of calcium carbonate, which is also the main ingredient in antacids, stomach acid compounds. The shell consists of 9 to 12 percent of the total weight of the egg, and contains pores that allow oxygen and expulsion of carbon dioxide.

Second Egg white consists mainly of protein albumen, and also contains niacin (vitamin B3), riboflavin (vitamin B2), chlorine, magnesium, potassium, sodium and sulfur. The egg white contains about 57 percent of the total share of proteins in the egg.

3rd Yolk color is determined by the food consumed chicken. The more yellow and orange pigments in grains that feed the chickens, it will be clearer color egg yolks.

>> Free-range eggs are unhealthier than those from the cage?

4th Other colors in a pod vary depending on its age and other factors. Egg whites are an indicator of how the egg is fresh. Pink egg whites or colorful show that the egg broke, and such eggs should be avoided.

5th Blood that can sometimes be seen in the egg comes from a small puncture in blood vessels in the yolk.But that does not mean that such an egg is safe to eat.

6th Color sets the color of egg laying. White chickens are the most common type in the United States and white eggs hatch, and the hen brown feathers more often in Europe, and the dominance of such eggs. No significant differences in quality.

7th It takes 24 to 26 hours to hatch chicken eggs. Eggshell is created in the womb chickens. About 30 minutes after hatching, the process begins again.

8th The average hen hatches 250 to 270 eggs a year. Roughly 75 billion eggs produced in the U.S. each year, 10 percent of world production. China is the world's biggest producer of eggs, and they annually produce 390 billion, or half of the world production.

9th Roast turkey eggs hatch too, but harder to find in the market. Purice need more space to nest, so their behavior is not as cost-effective, and also have strong maternal instincts of chickens.

10th Dinosaur eggs are helping to solve the old zagnonetka which was the first. Canadian researchers have argued that the egg came before the chicken, because dinosaurs are formed nests and lay down eggs long before birds evolved.
