The egg is the standard bearer for other forms of protein and the percentage of the essential nutrients contained in other forms of protein is based on a comparative assesment compared to the egg. Is the nutritional content of the eggs protein, not how many grams of protein but rather the required essential nutrients, based on the inclusiveness of the yoke and the egg white, or does the egg white and the egg yolk, if ingested seperately, both individually contain these essential ( I believe there are 9) nutrients that provide a complete protein?
Re: Is the 'perfect' protein in an egg found sepearately in yoke and egg white?
