Not to be confused with "pastured".
I am interested in drinking raw eggs and I read this Mark's Daily Apple about it: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/drinking-raw-eggs/#axzz1ivCovjR4
Does pasteurization neutralize Avidin, thus making the Biotin more nutritionally available?

Let me Wikipedia that for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avidin#Inactivation_of_biotin_binding_activity
No, pasturization does not inactivate avidin.

If you are comfortable with the source of your eggs they should be safe raw. In the good old days we always made eggnog with raw unpasteurized eggs and never had any problems. Or maybe the rum neutralized the bugs!
I occasionally add raw "wild" eggs to my smoothies and I am fine.
