Eggs add flavor, texture and nutrients to the diet, and may be scrambled, fried, poached, boiled, pickled or blended with other ingredients and cooked. They are produced by female birds, and consist of a yolk suspended in a thick, white, viscous liquid inside a protective shell. The yolk contains protein, fats and vitamins. The white contains protein and water.
