Albumen (Egg White, Egg Albumin)
Albumen is another word for cytoplasm
of an egg, commonly referred to as the white of an egg. Albumen
contains many nutrients. A large portion of albumen is water,
in which are dissolved proteins. Albumen is comprised of unique
proteins made from 18 biologically available amino acids,
which are absolutely essential to healthy growth and maintenance.
These protein found in albumen provide
extra nutrition to the embryo contained in the egg, and shelter
the yolk, providing added protection. The amino acids found
in albumen reveal an extraordinary ability to smooth and tighten
the skin, making wrinkles and expression lines less visible.
