What are the benefits of eating raw, organic eggs if any?

Asked by Aster (19949points) July 14th, 2016

When I was a kid my mother would put an egg in a blender for me but blenders back then weren’t good at all.
Do you blend raw, organic eggs to drink and why?

No. I don’t even blend regular eggs to drink raw. That’s gross! I think your Mom saw too much Rocky.

I’ve used blenders since the 60’s. They aren’t any better today than they were in the past, especially for something so simple as blending an egg.

Ick.
I don’t think there are any benefits to raw eggs, protein is protein raw or cooked and there sure aren’t any benefits to Salmonella. lol

Eating raw eggs carries the risk of salmonella food poisoning, the symptoms of which include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps, and which typically persist for 4 to 7 days.

I am not aware of the benefits of eating raw eggs, but I doubt they are worth this risk.

I have been told that raw egg whites destroy B vitamins, but it apparently is not a major problem for most people. Raw egg whites are still used as a topping for pies when combined with acid and with bubbles whipped in. The problem for me is that raw egg whites resemble snot.

Over well for the record

Are you referring to meringues @SmartAZ? There is no acid involved. You just add sugar, slowly, as you’re whipping up the egg whites until they become stiff and form peaks when you pull them up with the spatula. Then you put in on the pie and bake it. They aren’t eaten raw.

Whipped egg whites is also the secret to waffles.
