Nutritional values

Chicken protein supplies all essential amino acids and has the highest biological value. This means that our body converts it 100 percent into its own protein. The lecithin contained in egg yolk strengthens the nerves and promotes attention and concentration. And the latest studies show: eggs have little effect on cholesterol levels.

Absolute freshness is the secret of perfectly poached eggs: the egg white is then still nice and compact and adheres better to the yolk. So it does not flow too much apart in the vinegar stock.
