Hormones in Egg Whites - vrob - 03-12-2015 12:49 PM

Are there any hormones in egg whites or all the hormones in the egg yolk? I am trying to avoid hormones that are found in meats, dairy and eggs.

Both would contain hormones. But a higher level in the yolks due to a higher fat content. Hormones have a high affinity for fats.

Would eggs have more hormones than some lean chicken/turkey?

I have never seen any tests on the differences but I would suspect more in the chicken and turkey. Same with antibiotic residue.

Would a glass of whole milk kefir have more hormones in it than an egg?

Would the fermentation of the milk to make kefir decrease the amount of hormones, antibiotics, and heavy metals in milk?

I'd love to find the answer to these questions.

I also wonder if fermentation in milk kefir would eliminate or at least decrease xanthine oxidase from the milk.
