Scientists Discover That Electrocuting Eggs Gets Rid Of The Fart Stench
Eggs are one of the most commonly consumed foods on the planet. A week doesn’t go by where I don’t eat eggs. I f’n love them. I’m down with omelets, deviled eggs, souffles, soft-boiled ramen eggs soaked in soy sauce. Heck, I even had some pickled eggs in Dublin a few weeks ago that I really enjoyed.
You know what I don’t love? The noxious fart smell of eggs. You know the one I’m talking about. We’ve all whiffed it. If you could do away with the fart smell of eggs forever you would, wouldn’t you? You’re damn right you would. Thankfully, that’s now possible to research from some Japanese scientists.
Vice’s Munchies reports that Japanese scientists have discovered that electrocuting eggs gets rid of the fart smell:
In an article entitled “Anodic Oxidative Modification of Egg White for Heat Treatment,” Japanese researchers found that treating an egg with an electric current will rid it of any noxious odor. “With sufficient application of electricity, almost no hydrogen sulfide was produced,” the researchers wrote, adding that their method of egg prep “exhibited unique properties, such as a lower gelation temperature and a softened texture.”
In other words, the benefits of this “cooking” method go beyond smell, and we may one day see a celebrity chef zapping eggs with electricity for a heady segment on Mind of a Chef about the zealous pursuit of the perfectly soft egg white. (via)
So, now all you need is a way to send an electrical current through your eggs and you’ll be able to get rid of that fart smell forever.
