Like many people around the world are likely to enjoy eating eggs for breakfast. They are an excellent food for breakfast, nutritious, healthy and delicious. In addition, they are very easy to prepare and can make a variety of meals with them. However, if you like this food like most Americans, you need to know the correct way of storage.
Where do you keep your eggs after you buy at the local store? Do you keep them in the fridge is? If you are in North America, Australia, Japan or Scandinavia it is probably yes, but, surprisingly, not everyone does. People from other countries tend to keep the eggs at room temperature, although in some cases may be harmless, can sometimes be harmful to health.
We all know that the most common risk of egg consumption is the bacteria known as Salmonella.
“in vitro insertion of salmonella in eggs is more successful with non – refrigerated eggs with eggs refrigerated.” – Is published in the Journal of Food Protection
No But National Public Radio says it is not necessary to cool the eggs, because there are several protections against Salmonella in the United States as washing, inspections and monitoring of eggs from the supplier to the store. In Europe most chickens are vaccinated against salmonella, so this means that we have to be concerned or keep eggs in the fridge.
According to the FDA, vaccines are a very efficient component of a prevention program Salmonella enteritidis. Marianne Gravely, an expert in technical information in the USDA and Inspection Service Food Safety advises people who do not keep eggs at room temperature for more than two hours. Especially since it is not possible to see if an egg shell is free of pathogens. In addition, one of the bad things of these bacteria that cause food poisoning do not affect the taste, smell or appearance of food. There is no way to know if a chicken is infected with salmonella or not, so it is possible that eggs, whether they come from a grocery store, a farmers’ market, or the backyard of his neighbor contain salmonella. It is still up to you to decide how you want to store the eggs, but you should be aware of the risks they are taking. Prevention is the best cure, and that prevention is better than cure.
