🛍 Product Information (Main) (English):

Binomial Name:

Chinese Name:有硒雞蛋

Other Names:Selenium Eggs

Product Description:Selenium is found in the soil, and soils around the world have different levels of selenium, and therefore plants contain different levels of selenium. Generally speaking, lean meat, persimmons, garlic, seafood, green onions, pumpkins, etc. in food contain a lot of selenium. The selenium content of animal products (about 0.4-1.5μg/g) is higher than that of plants; the selenium content of general plant cereals can range from <0.1μg/g─>0.8μg/g; in marine organisms, the selenium content is also More than plants, but because fish (especially fish containing mercury in the body) will form mercury-selenium complex, resulting in extremely low bioavailability of selenium, so although the content of selenium in fish is high, the utilization of selenium for fish itself is extremely low Low; as for meat, it will provide 0.1-0.4μg/g; for dairy products, the selenium content is <0.3μg/g.

Also, whole grains and stone fruit seeds are good sources. Selenium intake provided in drinking water is very limited unless water flows through areas of high selenium soil where higher levels are likely.

Selenium in plants enters plants because selenium replaces sulfur. The forms of selenium include methylselenoline, selenine and its metabolites. Selenium is required for animal growth and metoselenine is obtained when eating plants. The form of selenium in the diet depends on the combination of animal and plant foods.

An egg contains about 6-8 grams of high-quality protein, amino acids, a small amount of cholesterol, vitamin E and D and other micronutrients. In terms of nutrient absorption and digestibility: 100% for boiled eggs; 97% for scrambled eggs, 98% for fried poached eggs, and 30% to 50% for raw food (with bacteria, easy to diarrhea). In terms of vitamin retention rate: ①The method of lower heating temperature: boiled eggs, the nutrition is fully retained; steamed eggs, riboflavin, lutein and other water-soluble vitamins lose less; ②the method of high heating temperature: fried poached eggs Vitamins A, D, E, K and other fat-soluble vitamins and water-soluble vitamins are all lost. As far as the heart is good: boiled eggs, the cooking temperature is not high, and the cholesterol in the yolk is not exposed to oxygen, so it is the most beneficial way of eating for the heart. However, for children, steamed custard and egg drop soup are the most suitable, because these two methods can loosen the protein, which is easily digested and absorbed by children.

Several human clinical trials and epidemiological studies have investigated the effect of selenium intake on cancer. Selenium as an antioxidant may have a chemopreventive role in cancer risk and may trigger an immune response. At low levels, it is used in the body to produce antioxidant selenoproteins. So it is called "anti-cancer egg" in the market.

Selenium (closely related to iodine, which eggs are rich in) plays an important role in thyroid health. Selenium is a cofactor for three thyroid hormone deiodinases that help activate and deactivate various thyroid hormones and their metabolites. The role of isolated selenium deficiency in Hashimoto's disease thyroid-induced autoimmune response is now being investigated. However, in the case of combined iodine and selenium deficiencies, selenium deficiency was shown to be thyroid protective.

Health effects

The effects of selenium intake on cancer have been studied in several clinical trials and epidemiologic studies in humans. Selenium may have a chemo-preventive role in cancer risk as an anti-oxidant, and it might trigger the immune response. At low levels, it is used in the body to create anti-oxidant selenoproteins.

Selenium (in close interrelation with iodine, and eggs are rich in iodine) plays a role in thyroid health. Selenium is a cofactor for the three thyroid hormone deiodinases, helping activate and then deactivate various thyroid hormones and their metabolites. Isolated selenium deficiency is now being investigated for its role in induction autoimmune reactions in thyroid gland in Hashimoto's disease. However, in a case of combined iodine and selenium deficiency, selenium deficiency was shown to play a thyroid-protecting role.

#Should Be / Avoided:
Eggs contain avidin, which will affect the absorption of biotin in food, causing symptoms such as loss of appetite, general weakness, and muscle pain. Eggs will carry bacteria during the formation process. Uncooked eggs cannot kill bacteria and easily cause diarrhea. The protein structure of raw eggs is dense, and a large part cannot be absorbed by the human body. Only after the eggs are cooked, the protein becomes soft and can be digested and absorbed by the human gastrointestinal tract.

*Edible Compatibility:
There is a saying in the market that eating eggs should not be eaten with sugar or soy milk. When sugar and eggs are boiled together, the high temperature will produce a kind of glycosyl lysine, which is said to have blood coagulation effect, and it will be harmful after entering the human body. In fact, this chemical effect will definitely occur during the cooking process of many foods, and the human body will also produce it by itself, so there is no need to worry too much.

As for the saying that you should not drink soy milk at the same time, it means that soy milk contains trypsin, which will prevent the body from absorbing egg protein after combining with egg protein. However, soy milk is also cooked at high temperature during the production process, and high temperature will destroy trypsin, so there is no need to worry too much.


Cooking Skills:Do not overcook or fry. Generally, after the water is boiled, the eggs can be boiled on low heat for 5-6 minutes. If the cooking time is too long, the protein will coagulate too much, which will affect digestion and absorption. When frying eggs, the fire should not be too high, and the time should not be too long, otherwise the eggs will harden, the taste will be bad, and it will affect digestion and absorption.

Boiled eggs; steamed eggs; fried poached eggs; boiled eggs. The steamed egg puts the egg and the gravy together. There are many egg-to-water ratios in the market, such as 1:1 or 1:1.2, but he believes that 1:1.5 is the best, that is, 1 part of egg and 1.5 parts of water. Beat the eggs into a medium bowl and stir gently while adding the gravy to mix well. Boil water 2.5 cm high in a steamer. When it is just boiling, turn off the heat and heat. The secret is to cover it with tin foil or plastic wrap. You can use tin foil or plastic wrap to cover the water egg for steaming, or cover it with a large plate. This will prevent the sweat from falling down and affect the appearance. The whole process takes 10-12 minutes to steam. If you want to add deliciousness, you can sprinkle onion and soy sauce after steaming.

Notes:Ordinary raw eggs usually contain salmonella, so it is best to cook and sterilize before eating. There are also some pasteurized eggs on the market. If you want to eat raw eggs, you can choose this kind. It is not recommended to eat plain eggs raw.

Raw eggs are less likely to cause stomach bloating than hard-boiled eggs.

Some people may find hard-boiled eggs difficult to digest. The yolk in them may make some people feel stagnant and may take longer to digest. Food stays in the stomach longer, which can also make you prone to feeling bloated. Compared with boiled eggs, raw eggs may have less chance of bloating, but it still depends on the individual's digestion ability.
