  • One large egg contains 70 calories and nine essential amino acids.
  • Eggs can help you maintain a heathy weight. With six grams of protein, they can help you feel fuller for longer.

Egg Safety

When cooking, handling and storing eggs, it’s important to take the necessary steps to ensure proper food safety is maintained and to help prevent the spread of bacteria. Follow these tips below for safe and nutritious eggs:

Storing Eggs

  • Use the egg carton’s Julian date or expiration date to determine if the eggs can still be consumed. The Julian date is a three-digit code that represents when the eggs were packaged.
  • Eggs should be placed on a shelf in the fridge rather than on the fridge door. The temperature on the door can fluctuate when it is opened and closed.
  • Eggs can remain in the fridge for three to five weeks.

Handling Eggs

  • Use clean utensils and cooking surfaces.
  • Wash hands, utensils and all surfaces with hot water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after cooking.
  • Paper towels and washcloths, which should be changed often, can be used to clean cooking surfaces.
  • Rewash hands after preparing each food item.

Cooking Eggs

  • Cooking eggs properly will ensure bacteria is destroyed.
  • Scrambled eggs, omelets and frittatas should be cooked until no visible liquid egg remains.
  • Fried eggs should be cooked until the egg whites are completely set and the yolk is thickened but not hard.
