23 Apr EGG YOLK
Yolk constitutes 30 percent of the egg’s liquid mass. Egg yolk has an energy value of 59 calories. The color depends on the feed the chickens are on. If they eat a lot of yellow-orange plant pigment from calendula or yellow corn, the yolks will be dark yellow, and if they eat more white corn – they will be paler. Yolk contains total fat and cholesterol in the egg and just under half the total protein. With the exception of riboflavin and niacin, yolk contains more vitamins, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron from egg whites. All the vitamins A, D and E are in the yolk.
