Ingredients of an All-Natural Egg

This is the last of three posters in the “ingredients” series. I think I’ve made my point.

I’ve exhausted it, in fact. Enjoy.

  1. I remember isolating (3β)-cholest-5-en-3-ol from an egg in my college biochemistry class. Why don’t I see it on your ingredients list? (This is brilliant, by the way.)

    1. (3β)-cholest-5-en-3-ol would be an interesting addition to the list. There are probably thousands of organic compounds in an egg and I wanted these designs to fit onto A4 paper, so I had to choose just a few major ingredients from high-resolution GC/MS results I found in academic journals.

      I have an online T-shirt store opening hopefully tomorrow. T-shirts have more space than A4 paper—so I’m sure I could squeeze in (3β)-cholest-5-en-3-ol! :)

      Where did you go to college?

      1. James, I attended a small college in SoCal for my undergraduate degree and then went to a Ivy League school for my PhD. I popped back in here to let you know that my husband showed me your posters yesterday on his Facebook feed. I do believe this means you’ve gone viral!

  2. Really puzzled about what your point actually is. The information (ignoring the dodgy addition – ’rounding error’? So large from so few roundings – I think not!) seems to aim to hide the nutritional value or otherwise of an egg and to create an association in the undiscerning reader’s mind between chemical representations and “nothing to worry about as every food can be viewed in terms of its chemistry”. This is so blatantly manipulative and unscientific in its goal of obfuscation that your motive and scientific clarity are brought into question.

  3. An egg contains Formaldehyde? These are amazing! I found this shared on FB, can I use it to share with friends? Thank you!
