Awesome vlog, Darla! Definitely learned quite a bit. Thanks for doing this, and keep your vlogs coming. I look forward to learning more from you!Maybe I should wash my eggs before I break them? That way I don't have to try to wash them after they've been used? Then, I'm guessing I should let them dry completely before putting them in the coffee grinder? And what do they taste like? I'm curious! Ha.
wow, impressive! I love learning more about how to use all the parts of the food that we consume. This is also much more environmentally friendly, rather than buying vitamin pills packed in plastic. Eating egg shells instead of buying supplements also saves money. Good questions, Raychelle, and looking forward to Darla's response.
I did not see you swallow it.Will the egg shell powder dissolve in drinks? You use brown egg shells. I use white. Is brown preferred or it will not matter? Thanks for a great tip. :D~BBF
Thanks for your replies! To answer your questions:-Wash after you break the eggs. You don't want any yolk residue. Don't forget to remove any dye stamps. I usually break off the piece with the stamp because I don't know what's in the ink and whether it's safe to ingest. -Dry eggs completely before putting them into the grinder.-It doesn't matter what color egg shells you use. The brand I bought happened to be brown. Aren't the better quality ones brown? -The powder doesn't dissolve in regular drinks so it will feel a little like sand :-( . They're tasteless, though. If that really bothers you, I find a (reuseable) straw really cuts down the grittiness. The straw also sucks out the powder settled at the bottom. Alternatively, adding the powder to a thick drink like a shake makes it somewhat less grainy. If you want to dissolve the eggshell powder, you can put them in acidic drinks like apple cider vinegar or Kombucha tea if you like drinking them. Approximately 12 eggshells per one liter. -Another tip: store the powder in a glass jar and keep in a dry place. I got a few other awesome natural food tips/recipes so I'll be sharing them soon. -Darla
Great!I'll have to try that. Thanks for the dye stamp removal reminder. Yikes. Yes, do share more tips. ~BBF
Thanks Darla for your helpful answers.... I googled egg dye stamps because I've never seen them. Are they unique to a state or certain store? Either I've never really noticed them (and will start noticing them from now and on) or I've always purchased unstamped eggs? I just checked my two egg cartons, none of them are stamped. Really odd!Looking forward to more from you!
I remember reading recently that the color of the eggs is just based on the kind of hen -- the breed -- that lays them. I believe there are no differences in the nutritional value of brown and white eggs. I've seen egg dye stamps but haven't recognized a pattern in where they're occurring. I'll be more watchful now!
I never hear about egg shell becomes natural calcium. I can check it out. I am major in health education and more specialist in organic stuff. For cleaning the shell, I recommend you to use Veggie Wash. It is really good. It can find at health store. I am not sure if other grocery store have one.
Interesting post! I will try eating egg shells. This reminded me of a story where this witch doctor used egg shells in treating a person that appeared to have vitamin deficiencies. I guess it wasn't all that fictional! I've seen dye stamps on eggs but I don't see that too much anymore too. Must be walking on eggshells when eating eggshells?
sometime i ate boiled egg. a question arise, when i boiled the egg w/ shell in water, will hot water either wash off or reduce the important nutriton or supplements on shell? thanks for sharing.
Wow...amazing...awesome..thanks for sharing! I'll be sure to share this w/my family & friends. Again, mucho thanks! :)
Eggs are bleached on eggs shells. Minerals and calcium are decreased after bleaching procedure in processing department of all eggs factories.
Read the article about the organic eggs! Website:http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/06/08/why-you-dont-want-to-buy-organic-eggs-at-the-grocery-store.aspx
I never knew and it's good to know the egg shells don't have to go waste or go to the compost and they do have nutritional value. Thanks!
Thanks, anonymous, for posting the link about organic eggs from grocery stores. That's something I didn't realize. All the more reason to buy locally where you can find out directly from the seller about how the eggs are processed. Eggshells shouldn't be consumed unless you are certain they are safe. The whole grind -n- eat your own eggshells probably is best if you raise your own chickens. Meanwhile, stick to store bought calcium supplements.
Eggs are not just about proteins as it has a lot of benefits to your health.
It has been discovered that eggshell is a good source of calcium. Even calcium supplements have been made from crushed eggshell to help people overcome calcium deficiency.herbal supplements online
They say that too much egg whites is bad to health. But I proved that it was wrong. The egg whites are actually where most of the nutrition the egg is.
