Who ya gonna call when you have questions about eggs?

Most people don't think too much about eggs. Sure, you probably have eggs in your refrigerator at home (the majority of people do), but seriously! When's the last time you really gave them a second thought?

Truth be told, eggs often get taken for granted by most of us. We might think about them a little when we crack a couple into a muffin or cake batter, or whisk a few to make scrambled eggs or an omelette, or drop one into simmering water to poach. But most of the time, we really don't give them much thought.

Until, that is, perhaps something like one of the following happens......

......a co-worker tells you that brown eggs taste better and are fresher than white eggs, but you're not so sure......

......your neighbour asks if you ever have trouble peeling hard-cooked eggs because she sometimes does, and it's so frustrating, and she wonders what's wrong with the eggs these days......

......your mom mentions she's read that omega-3 eggs are the best eggs you can buy, but you know they're more expensive and you wonder if they're really worth the extra money......

......you go out for breakfast with a friend and order a 3-egg omelette, and your friend wonders why you didn't ask to have the yolks removed because of all the cholesterol they contain, but you think you heard something recently about not needing to worry about the cholesterol in food anymore......

......your sister tells you she's heard that eggs are stored for a few months before they get put on grocery store shelves and you wonder if this could possibly be true......

......you eat toast or cereal for breakfast every day, but by mid-morning you're starving and you wonder if there's something else you could eat that would tide you over until lunch......

......you crack an egg open and notice a small red spot in the egg and you wonder if an egg with a blood spot is okay to eat......

If you've ever, for even just a fleeting moment, wondered about any of the above, or anything else about eggs, please check the Frequently Asked Questions About Eggs page. We've posted answers to some of the typical questions we get about eggs in Ontario. I'll continue to update this list as I think of or am asked other questions so check back occasionally.

Please let us know if you have an egg question that needs an answer.
