Egg is a high protein food which putrefies in the intestines if it is not properly digested. Very few people need to be reminded of the unbearable smell of an egg which has gone off – now think of that inside your body. This is exactly what happens when you eat eggs if you are intolerant to them. Next to dairy products, I regard egg as the second most toxic food to the human body when intolerant to it.
In the vast majority of cases, the small amount of egg powder substitute which many manufacturers use in cakes and biscuits does not cause a problem. It does not have the same potential to trigger egg intolerance reactions. Homemade cakes containing one, two or more whole eggs should be avoided, however. Apart from the obvious exposure to egg, there are a number of preparations where it may not be so obvious, for example:
• Meringue • Mayonnaise • Salad Cream
