Is Eating Raw Eggs Safe?

Raw organic eggs are safe to eat if certain safeguards are taken and the dangers are known. Salmonella bacteria can quite often be found outside of an egg and to stop the bacteria to seep inside the egg, the egg needs to be cleaned well. There is no difference between free-range or caged commercial egg farms and domestic chook. It is a risk that occurs in all chicken products.

One of the most essential things to keep in mind is that raw eggs should be eaten as fresh as possible. Whenever an egg shell is cracked, there’s a chance of Salmonella germs contaminating the egg’s whites. Never eat an egg that has a crack in the shell.

Cooking egg yolks helps the body absorb protein more quickly, but it also reduces the amount of vitamin A, vitamin B, and vitamin D in your body by about 20-30%, according to a study. As a result, raw egg yolks are more nutrient-dense than cooked egg yolks. Raw Omega 3 eggs are popular among Japanese people for a variety of reasons.

Why Are Raw Japanese Eggs Safe To Eat?

Ise eggs, like any other Japanese food, are safe and very hygienic. Each egg is machine washed without human touch, checked for contamination, and then packed in a hygienic manner, and is then stored in a temperature-controlled room. 

The eggs are then transferred to store in temperature-controlled vehicles and sold in stores with cold, are properly decontaminated, and processed under strict controls. 

Salmonella can be killed through “pasteurization,” or sterilization at a low temperature. Salmonella bacteria can be discovered on the surface of egg shells. However, the germs can be killed without boiling the egg if it is washed with the right technique. 

Japanese quality assurance requirements follow strict steps to eliminate all contamination. Ise eggs are always salmonella free. At the Ise plant, it is a part of the procedure to machine wash eggs to eliminate any trace of Salmonella, and then confirm the sterilization results. The high quality eggs can be eaten uncooked after following these guidelines.

The maintenance of hygiene starts with the chick feed.

For newly hatched chicks, the Ise employs a highly sterile diet so that they grow up into healthy happy birds. Eggs are gathered, cleaned and graded (or sorted), and boxed after coming from chickens that have been raised in this manner.

Eggs are washed, examined, and sorted under strict quality control.

Human hands do not contact the eggs while they are cleaned. Before being sold in stores, all eggs must pass through a series of rigorously controlled processes.

All the workers must wear sterilized uniforms, have clean hands, and wear gloves at all times while handling the eggs.  Apart from that, the farm is technologically updated, and access is always restricted. Furthermore, extra efforts are made to keep  stray birds, and animals away from the farm.
