Good news for all you egg lovers out there ….
The Heart Foundation has doubled its recommended limit on eggs!
An independent scientific report titled “Eggs and the Heart”, commissioned by the foundation last year, raised the advised number of eggs from three to six per week.
Heart Foundation national nutrition adviser Angela Berrill said most organisations around the world had relaxed their advice on eggs.
This is because recent research has shown that the cholesterol that’s found in eggs is not impacting on our blood cholesterol as much as perhaps we thought it might have been in the past.
However, Ms Berrill said care should still be taken with the company eggs keep.
“It is important to pay special attention to the foods you eat alongside your eggs. Many people like to pair their eggs with refined white bread, butter, salt, or processed meats like bacon or sausages, which are not so good for our hearts,” she said.
