Quail Eggs

Quail EggsQuail eggs are small speckled pearls that nature gives us. Since ancient times, this delicacy has been prized as a dietary and healing food. While quail eggs are so small (10-12 g), they are packed with many biologically active substances we need to be healthy.

They are an abundant source of useful trace elements and vitamins. Their nutritional value is 3-4 times higher than that of chicken eggs.

They contain 13% proteins while chicken eggs provide a bit more than 11%. Quail eggs contain 140 μg vitamin B1 compared to 50 μg in chicken eggs, and they contain twice as much vitamins A and B2. And quail eggs provide five times as much iron and potassium as chicken eggs. They also are richer in phosphorus and calcium.

Due to their amazing content, quail eggs are considered as a dietary food. The thing is quail eggs do not have “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and are very rich in “good” (HDL) cholesterol, so even seniors can eat them. Unlike chicken eggs, they do not cause allergy and diathesis. What’s more, they can help fight allergy symptoms due to the ovomucoid protein that is even used in the production of some antiallergic drugs. Regular consumption of quail eggs can help against many diseases.

    I don’t see what all the fuss about cholesterol is… Dietary cholesterol has never been shown to have an effect of blood cholesterol, and many studies show quite the opposite. Dietary cholesterol is absolutely essential for health and well being. Conventional medicine on the subject is based on highly flawed studies that do not hold true under scrutiny.

  • i am definitely fan of the quails and like so much your recipes with quails, and i did feature your site on my squidoo lens, if this is ok with you. Thanks for the info on the quails.

  • cholesterol is produced by the liver, (see Wiki) and can not be in eggs, not in any food, but your liver can make it if you eat high quantities of saturated fats. The quail eggs are having very low contain of saturated fats but high contain of unsaturated fats and omega 3 and omega 6. Some sites are really mixed up, somebody gave the Nutrition Facts site, which is having 2 kind of data, first telling that quail eggs contain cholesterol and only saturated fats, what is impossible, and later giving other data. So use your common sense, to find out the truth.
