Eggs are a staple food as they are loved by millions of people all over the world. And although cooking eggs may seem simple, there are some skills involved especially when you want to eat easy poached eggs. The microwave egg poachers make cooking eggs simple and a lot easier. With these appliances, you can have perfectly cooked eggs without heating the pan. And to use microwavable egg poachers, you just need to fill the poacher with water, put in the egg, and cover the poacher before inserting it in your microwave. In about two to five minutes, you will have a perfectly poached egg.  In this article therefore, we are going to look at why microwavable egg poachers are worth buying.

Prevents bursting

Although scrambled eggs are easy to cook with a microwave, poached eggs have proved a challenge to most people. This is because, cooking poached eggs in the microwave has mostly ended in an explosive affair. This usually happens not only because of the level of water, but also the inconsistencies between the egg white and the yolk. Luckily, microwavable egg poachers have come to solve this problem as they are fitted with a cover that prevents the egg from bursting out of the poaching container.  

Effectiveness

Today, there are some good egg poachers in the market that are very effective in boiling eggs using a microwave. With these appliances, you can either have a hard or soft boiled egg within 3 to five minutes – all this without boiling a pot of water. You just need to put your egg in a boiler, fill it with water before covering and putting it in the microwave. And after about three to five minutes, your egg will be ready. This process is not only effective, but also saves a lot of time and energy.  

Saves time and energy

Another reason why you should get a microwavable egg poacher is because it saves a lot of time and energy. It only takes about two minutes to poach an egg in a microwave. This saves you a lot of time as it takes longer to boil an egg in a pan. The good thing is that, there are egg poachers that come with a transparent lid and you can watch the eggs as they cook. On the other hand, there are some egg poachers that can be turned over in order to cook some bacon.

Cheaper than using an egg poaching pan

You should also consider buying a microwavable egg poacher because it is cheaper than either getting an egg poaching pan or a saucepan for boiling the eggs.  That way, you get to save money in the long term.

Peanuts and Eggs Can Help Prevent Allergies in High-risk Babies: Study

Peanuts, eggs may prevent food allergies in high risk infants

Researchers have found that introducing peanuts and eggs to high-risk babies as early as three months could prevent them from developing allergies to those foods in later life.

According to UK current guidelines, babies should be fed nothing but breastmilk until six months – and only then should solid foods be introduced.

Published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, the study found that despite low adherence, early introduction to allergenic foods (those that may cause an allergic reaction), including egg and peanut, was found to be effective in preventing the development of food allergies in specific groups of infants.

“These results have significant implications and are informative when it comes to infant feeding recommendations concerning allergies and the development of new guidelines,” said study researcher Gideon Lack, Professor at King’s College London.

“If early introduction to certain allergenic foods became a part of these recommendations, we also have data that tells us what populations may need extra support when it comes to implementing the recommendations,” Lack added.

The research is a continuation from The Enquiring About Tolerance (EAT) study where over 1300 three-month old infants were recruited in England and Wales and placed into one of two groups.

One group was introduced to six allergenic foods (including peanut and egg) from three months of age alongside breastfeeding and was called the Early Introduction Group (EIG).

The other group was exclusively breastfed for six months and was termed the Standard Introduction Group (SIG).

The results showed that 34.2 per cent of children in the SIG developed food allergy in comparison to 19.2 per cent, of children in the EIG.

Among babies sensitised to peanuts at enrolment, 33.3 per cent of those in the SIG went on to develop a peanut allergy compared with 14.3 per cent of the infants in the EIG.

And among those sensitised to egg at the beginning of the study, 48.7 per cent of the infants in the SIG developed an egg allergy compared with 20 per cent in the EIG.

The early introduction of allergenic foods to infants who were not at a high risk of developing food allergies was not associated with an increased risk of developing food allergy, the study said.

There were no significant differences in food allergy rates between the two groups of infants with no sensitisation to any food at the time of enrollment.

The results were still evident despite only 42 per cent of the EIG group achieving the per-protocol adherence of sustained, high dose consumption of five or more early introduction foods.

Low adherence to the protocol, appeared to be most prominent among populations of increased maternal age, non-white ethnicity and lower maternal quality of life.

“We have shown that the early introduction of foods that causes allergies can significantly reduce the chances of high-risk infants developing peanut and egg allergy,” said study researcher Michael Perkin, from University of London.
