TIPS

FOR SELECTION AND STORAGE

Eggs

  • Buy only clean, uncracked eggs.
  • Store away from foods with strong odours (such as fish, apples, cabbage or onions).

Whole wheat Bread

  • While buying whole wheat bread from the grocery store, make sure you check the label as “whole wheat”. Because, unless the label indicates that a product is made from whole grain, your wheat bread may be made of refined flour and missing the key nutrients found in the bran and germ.

FOR PREPARING

Eggs

  • Many different types of spoilage bacteria will produce off-odours in eggs. These off odours may be sulphur-like, or they might simply just smell “bad.” Do not use these eggs for preparation.
  • To prevent any possible contamination to a recipe by a spoilt egg, break each egg separately into a small bowl before combining with the other ingredients.

 

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

  • Eggs are a good source of high-quality protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12, phosphorus and riboflavin, choline and selenium.
  • Whole wheat bread is a good source of dietary fibre and high in carbohydrates.

CAUTION

  • Overload of Proteins: Eating a high amount of protein can be dangerous if you suffer from kidney problems. People with low Glomerular filtration rate (GFR, which is the flow rate of fluid that the kidney filters), could be afflicted with acute kidney injury because of the high biological value of egg protein.

 

  • Bacteria: Raw eggs, including raw albumin, can be contaminated by bacteria. Salmonella is bacteria that is found in the intestines of chickens. As long as you do not eat raw eggs or albumin and make sure that your eggs are always well-cooked, the bacteria do not pose any real threat.

 

  • Allergies: Whole wheat bread contains gluten, therefore, for those you are insensitive or allergic to gluten must avoid eating such foods and can opt for gluten free products.
