Eggs are a highly nutritional and easy food to cook, which makes them popular all over the globe.
Eggs are rich in proteins and a lot of experts agree that proteins are a better choice for breakfast than processed cereals full of sugars.

But many articles have sprung up online recently about the weird, white string next to the yolk. People have confused it for a worm or a parasite. The truth is, that white string is called the “chalaza” (pronounced: cuh-lay-zuh).

The chalaza keeps the egg yolk in place and can be found on both sides of the yolk. The more visible the chalazae are, the fresher the eggs are.
