    ill repost this from what i wrote in the other thread......

    Albumen in the urine is a general sign, as studies show that a significantly higher amount of malabsorbed protein (egg) was found in the urine of healthy individuals (1). Stable isotope techniques are used to determine the digestibility of raw eggs vs. cooked eggs. In another study, using this method, it was demonstrated that the assimilation of cooked egg protein is efficient, albeit incomplete, and that the true ileal digestibility of egg protein is significantly enhanced by heat-pretreatment (2). Heat-pretreatment of course being cooked.
    Not to mention you have a 1 in 30,000 chance to get salmonella from a raw egg. Also, if you blend raw eggs or whatever, you can break up the chemical bonds of amino acids where as cooking them can hook the bonds together, which inevitably is the objective.

    is it just me or does the guy on that site not make any sense? he says you need to cook egg whites because of the avidin in them...but then he says dont cook the egg whites because you lose a lot of protein. and i quote....

    "Earlier this summer, I posted an article that suggested that one should not eat raw egg whites. This is the traditional nutritional dogma as raw egg whites contain a glycoprotein called avidin that is very effective at binding biotin, one of the B vitamins. The concern is that this can lead to a biotin deficiency. The simple solution is to cook the egg whites as this completely deactivates the avidin.

    The problem is that it also completely deactivates nearly every other protein in the egg white. While you will still obtain nutritional benefits from consuming cooked egg whites, from a nutritional perspective it would seem far better to consume them uncooked."
    End Quote...

    Correct me if I am just dead wrong but isnt avidin in a raw egg white what makes the protein less digestible?

    no worries? how bout salmonella...i mean whats the big deal...im not talking about you when i say this but it seems like some people want to be as lazy as they possibly can while bodybuilding...just cook the eggs it only takes like 5 minutes maximum...bodybuilding and dieting correctly is certainly not for the lazy/undedicated people IMO.
