Subject: Toss eggs onto salads to increase Vitamin E absorption, study says
A new study from the Journal of Nutrition has encouraged salad eaters to eat a few eggs with their leafy greens. Eating eggs with salad has been evidenced to increase the absorption of essential vitamins, like A and E, as well as other antioxidants. The study was funded by the Egg Council.
- "Now consumers can easily improve their diets by adding eggs to a salad that boasts a variety of colorful vegetables."
- Vitamin E, which is absorbed along with dietary fats, is often found in oils, seeds and nuts
- Eggs, a nutrient-rich food containing essential amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids and B vitamins, also contain a small amount of Vitamin E.
"Vitamin E is the second-most under-consumed nutrient in the average American diet, which is problematic because this fat-soluble nutrient has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties"
