How to properly conserve and whether they are fresh?
Eggs should always be stored refrigerated, and its duration is about 28 days after laying. They are considered extra fresh when term limits its consumption to 9 days.

It is advisable to consume only those who are in the shell very clean (sin fecal matter) and unbroken, because if this protective barrier is damaged, the entry of germs is assured.
This is very important to consider, since the egg can be a carrier of pathogens such as salmonella (enteritidis), Escherichia coli y estafilococos, whose main symptoms in our body are those affecting the gastrointestinal tract.

already cooked and cut vertically, the more focused the yolk fresher the egg, the more of this less cool side will.

when immersed in water and oil (whole) if the egg is to the bottom of the container, is that this fresh. If you become intermediately, may have been a week, but if fleet is kinda cool. This happens because the air chamber (space between the shell and the clear, formed by protective membranes) increases as the days pass, more air chamber, the egg floats and older is.

when the raw egg part, is considered old when his clear is very fluid, very liquid and yolk is flattened and inconsistent.

What is the egg-cholesterol ratio?
For many years the consumption of eggs was restricted, in those diets to treat and prevent high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
Intake was limited to 2 the 3 maximum units per week.

Now, after several scientific studies, these recommendations have been modified and have been banished.
It has been found that if a negative effect on blood cholesterol is the relationship between consumption of saturated fat and unsaturated on the dietary cholesterol, as erroneously believed.
Saturated fats are the ones to determine the increase of blood cholesterol. Recent research has shown that eating one egg per day, has no effect on blood cholesterol, always within the context of healthy and balanced diet, plus the addition of daily exercise.

Therefore professionals should clarify that updated unit can be consumed daily egg, if it has a good health.
