Pravrajya Suruchi

Protein Winner: Whole Eggs take the crown! A large whole egg boasts around 6 grams of protein, while a large egg white offers only 4 grams.

Egg White Advantage: Lower in calories and fat-free. Great for those watching calories or fat intake.

Whole Egg Advantage: More protein for the calorie compared to egg whites. Provides a more balanced nutrient profile.

Yolk Powerhouse:  The yolk, absent in egg whites, contains healthy fats, vitamins (A, D, E, K, B12), and minerals (selenium, phosphorus, iodine).

Dietary Needs: Choose whole eggs for a complete protein source and balanced nutrition if you're not restricting calories or fat.

Low-Fat Option: Egg whites are ideal for low-fat, low-calorie diets and those who prioritize protein intake from egg sources.

Combined Benefits: Include both whole eggs and egg whites in your diet for a well-rounded approach.
