Eggs are a very important part of an American diet. People eat them for breakfast, in cakes or even raw.
Even though you use eggs often, you probably don’t know what the white, ropey part found in a raw egg is.
Chalazae are found on the two sides of the yolk. Their purpose is to hold the yolk in the center of the egg.
Chalazae are a form of protein. They are connected both the yolk and the eggshell’s lining. You can easily notice them when you are trying to separate the egg whites.
Chalazae are edible and they even show that the egg is fresh as they disappear as the egg becomes older.
