A couple of weeks ago we celebrated World Egg day in Kaiseraugst, Switzerland (DSM headquarters), and I was happy to take the opportunity to talk about eggs with my colleagues. It was a great experience with Charlie chicken running around the building and people talking about and eating eggs. One of the questions that I always get at these kind of events is about the relationship between eggs and cholesterol. And I spoke my mind, eggs are an excellent source of cholesterol and we need cholesterol for multiple roles in the body. Besides, dietary cholesterol has little or no influence on total cholesterol. So, go ahead, get your eggs and enjoy all the benefits.
