  • Off topic pero parang on topic pa rin:

    Can anyone point an online source that says quail eggs have more cholesterol than ordinary chicken eggs?

    This urban legend / myth is actually keeping me from enjoying this delicious orange-y treat.

    Here are some references I've read that prove otherwise:



    Quail eggs are small speckled pearls that nature gives us. Since ancient times, this delicacy has been prized as a dietary and healing food. While quail eggs are so small (10-12 g), they are packed with many biologically active substances we need to be healthy. They are an abundant source of useful trace elements and vitamins. Their nutritional value is 3-4 times higher than that of chicken eggs. They contain 13% proteins while chicken eggs provide a bit more than 11%. Quail eggs contain 140 μg vitamin B1 compared to 50 μg in chicken eggs, and they contain twice as much vitamins A and B2. And quail eggs provide five times as much iron and potassium as chicken eggs. They also are richer in phosphorus and calcium.

    Due to their amazing content, quail eggs are considered as a dietary food. The thing is quail eggs do not have “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and are very rich in “good” (HDL) cholesterol, so even seniors can eat them. Unlike chicken eggs, they do not cause allergy and diathesis. What’s more, they can help fight allergy symptoms due to the ovomucoid protein that is even used in the production of some antiallergic drugs. Regular consumption of quail eggs can help against many diseases.

    Health Benefits of Quail EggsQuail eggs:
    • are a remedy against digestive tract disorders such as gastritis, stomach ulcer and duodenal ulcer.
    • can help cure anemia increasing hemoglobin level and remove toxins and heavy metals from blood.

    If kids eat at least 2 quail eggs daily, they grow better and are less likely to suffer from infectious diseases.

  • @Cookie mobster, i think you're right about the psychological effect ng pagka-orange nya. cuz i remember my uncle making some without the food coloring and it didn't taste as good as my neighbor's (who was selling the orange ones)
