John tells us that eggs (albumen maybe) is to be avoided in a flare.
This protein is what gives eggs it's binding and rising abilities - just like gluten...
My friend tells me that she hates getting eggs home from shopping and finding them older than first thought - the white - albumen - always runs across the pan more and a nice compact poached egg is unattainable unless eggs are really fresh...
Seems to me that the protein is starting to break down shorter and has lost it's entangle factor.
So, is it now a better food for us?
Even though it's older?
I wonder

I don't know about that.. but the older ones are apparently easier to shell after boiling them :-)

Perhaps John was thinking about the whole omega 6 thing. Honestly when I'm in a flare it won't matter how much omega 3 I take it makes bug'r all difference. And likewise omega 6.. my body has enough of its own omega 6, and if it wants to go nuts it will use that I reckon.

what I can eat on the diet (click here) -- my blog -- contact me (PM is broken)

Hey, la_monty--

Good to see You again. The problem with eggs is yolk that contains arachidonic acid and 'precursors.' I don't know about the albumen except that after cooking it is difficult to digest and that is probably rather inert for our purposes. At least it is not Kleb food!

So, during a flare, our bodies use available AA for the familiar cascade inflammatory response. It has been suggested by others (there might be a blurb about this on the Mercola site) that eggs to this extent are pro-inflammatory. I have never had problems with them, but perhaps responding to reasons another spondy might have trouble with eggs. After a fast, they are the best thing to get me going again...but of course after fasting I am relatively symptom-free.

Great to see You--
Continued HEALTH,
