Eggs, a food ingredient strongly associated with chickens, are also laid by poultry like ducks and turkeys. A fundamental and versatile foodstuff, a single chicken egg is an ideal source of protein with high biological values (BV) reaching up to 100. Eggs appeal to everyone, and anyone from novice home cooks to professional chefs enjoy boiling, frying, whisking, and even incorporating the raw ingredient into endless culinary creations.
