Why are my eggs turning green?


Depending on the circumstances, there are two possible answers to your question.

Depending on the circumstances, there are two possible answers to your question.

If an egg has a high level of Vitamin B12 or riboflavin, the white can have a green colour. This is a good sign, not at all bad for you.

Alternatively, sometimes a large batch of scrambled eggs can turn green. Again, the color change is harmless. It is usually due to a chemical change caused by heat if the eggs are cooked at too high a temperature. It can also be a problem if the eggs are not served right away and are kept at too hot a temperature.

To make a large amount of scrambled eggs and prevent them from turning green, use stainless steel equipment and cook in small batches at a low cooking temperature. Serve as soon as possible after cooking.

If you cannot serve the scrambled eggs right away, avoid direct heat. Place a pan of hot water between the pan of eggs and the heat source.
