about 6 grams of very high quality protein and about 6 grams of fat per egg. Most of the protein is in the egg white and all of the fat is in the yolk. I really dislike the taste of cooked eggs, so I buy the egg beaters brand egg product. It's basically pasteurized egg whites. 24 grams of high quality protein in about 3 gulps. It tastes pretty good too. Edited to change fat content.

A hen's egg weighs about 55 to 60 gm and consists of 10% outer layer, 60% white and 30% yellow yolk. The outer shell consists of calcium carbonate; the white portion is made up of protein known as egg albumin which is of high biological value. The egg contains about 11% proteins. The egg white is also a good source of riboflavin. The yolk contains mainly fat. The egg supplies fat in an emulsified form, which can be very easily digested and assimilated in the body. The egg yolk contains 1.33gm of cholesterol per 100 gm. The egg yolk is a source of vitamin A, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorous, lecithin and iron. An average hen's egg of 60 gm consists of 7.9 gm of protein, 7.9 gm of fat, 103 kcl, 36 mg of calcium, 132 mg of phosphorous, and 1.26 mg of iron. Egg powder contains about 49% of proteins and 43% fat and it is also a good source of vitamin A and riboflavin. It is rich in cholesterol (3.9 gm per 100 gm) and is a good source of iron and phosphorous. 1 egg yolk has 75% of the daily recommended value of cholesterol(dump the yolk when you cook eggs). josam

Hello, Somewhere on the egg carton should be the nutrition content per egg. The above answer seems spot on, though. James
