duck egg Vs chicken egg? Which is better from health point of view?
Today I bought some duck eggs (Cooked salted) from farmers market. I am not sure how good it is for health and just thought of giving it a try.
The taste of york was awful. York was semi-solid orange colored (seemed uncooked)

Congrats to you for getting a duck egg down! I tried one once and I vowed never again to eat those!
Well - here is what the USDA says about Duck and Chicken eggs. The duck egg is a bit larger than the extra-large chicken egg used for comparison:
Duck: 9.64 grams
Chicken: 5.57 grams
Duck: 619 mg (OMG!)
Chicken 237 mg
Duck: 8.9 grams
Chicken: 7.4 grams
Well - I just listed a few of the nutrients that we usually use to compare food. But man - look at the cholesterol in one of those! That is more than twice the RDA value for cholesterol (RDA is 300 mg a day)
OK - the chicken egg wins in both taste and nutrition!

Yolk itself is high in cholesterol period. However the egg white was probably o.k.(I don't like hard boiled eggs at all)
