In the inaugural episode of our new podcast series, we will be cracking open a topic that's as nutritious as it is controversial: EGGS. Eggs are "superfoods" since they are an excellent source of high quality protein, lipids, and 13 micronutrients essential for health and development. They still remain, however, one of the most under-consumed foods in many Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) where the need for such energy-dense, long shelf-life foods is highest.
In the second part of this episode, we scramble the fascinating potential of eggs to come up with solutions on tackling malnutrition in LMICs.
