Dr Oz: How To Scramble Eggs
Dr Oz spent the first segment of his show tackling some of the biggest food myths out there, before moving on to tackle three of the biggest egg myths you need to stop believing. Rhenotha was backstage in the egg lab and explained that when scrambling eggs, you can either scramble them in the pan or whisk them in a bowl with some milk then pour them into the pan.
Rhenotha had viewers tune in via Facebook live to vote on which technique they thought was better for scrambled eggs. However, in the meantime, Dr Oz wanted to tackle another popular myth: brown eggs are healthier than white eggs.
Dr Oz: Are Brown Eggs Healthier Than White Eggs?
It turns out that it’s a total myth that brown eggs are healthier than white eggs. Food journalist Ian Knauer lives on a farm and was happy to explain. Ian explained that the health of the egg actually depends on what the chickens eat, not the color of the shell. Different varieties of chickens will lay different color eggs. It turns out the chicken’s ear is actually the indicator of what color eggs the chicken will lay. Ian has chickens on his farm that lay brown eggs, some that lay white eggs, and even some that lay blue and green eggs.
Dr Oz: What Makes A Healthy Egg?
Ian also feeds his chickens a lot of kitchen scraps as well as organic chicken food to supplement that, while roaming around and eating worms and bugs. That means his chickens are healthy and the eggs they lay are healthy too. If you can find a small farm with organic chickens providing eggs, that would be the best eggs you could buy.
People automatically assume brown eggs are healthier and are willing to pay more for them. If you go through a dozen eggs a week, it could cost you almost $80 more a year.
Dr Oz: The Best Way To Scramble Eggs
In terms of Facebook live votes, scrambling right in the pan seemed to have just a slight edge. But when Rhenotha brought the eggs out for a taste test, Dr Oz wanted to bring in someone else to try the eggs to see if they could tell a difference. Rhenotha was absolutely floored when Dr Oz surprised her with a visit from Morris Chestnut.
Dr Oz then stated that he personally enjoys eggs scrambled in a bowl with a little milk, but it truly comes down to what you personally prefer.
