Raw duck egg yolks in kale smoothie?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 06, 2013 at 4:16 AM

I've been drinking a kale smoothie every morning for a few weeks and it's been great so far! They contain plenty of vitamins/minerals/fats, but I'm almost completely lacking protein. For the past few days, I've been scrambling up 3 duck eggs from a local farm to eat alongside the smoothie which provides about 30g of complete protein.

However, I'm a college student with early classes so it would be tremendously easier if I could add the raw eggs to the smoothie instead. I've read that it's best to avoid raw egg whites, but would I be fine if I start adding three raw duck egg yolks to the smoothie from now on?

Thanks!

If you were to do it though, like the poster below said, wash the outside of the egg before you crack it open. That will at least minimize the chance of FP.

No, all raw poultry and poultry products have a risk of salmonella. Ive seen people get sick from it, it is not pretty and can be life threatening. Its not like a 'stomach bug', it is 10x worse.

I'm definitely considering it. Would it be safer to instead use raw hen egg yolks?

I would definitely consider it. I take way bigger risks than that every day.

I put two or three raw chicken egg yolks in my kale smoothie every morning and have for years. I get the eggs from a neighbor and have never had a problem. Just make sure the shells are clean before you crack them.

If even .01% of duck eggs contain salmonella.... do you really want to take the chance?
