What is in an egg?
Packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins, eggs are a great source of protein. And with just 74 calories each, they are also one of the healthiest foods you can eat.
As a source of protein, eggs are perfect since they contain nine essential amino acids which the human body needs. They are also a natural source of key nutrients, like omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamins A, D, E, and B12, antioxidants, and choline. (according to Australian eggs)
