Kindy's Musings....

Food of the Week . . . Lutein

Does hard-boiling, scrambling, poaching, or frying eggs reduce or destroy their lutein content?

Lutein is a carotenoid that is definitely susceptible to heat and oxygen like all carotenoids. Some manufacturers have added lutein to processed foods with good results. Lutein added to ready-to-eat cereals, for example, has been exposed to 350F (177C) heat for 15 minutes and then 200F (93C) heat for 90 minutes and remained essentially stable. It's also been added to the fruit filling of cereal bars with good results under similar conditions. Lutein in aged cheeses has also been show to be fairly stable.

Lutein-enriched eggs are currently available in the marketplace and offer up to 2 milligrams of lutein per 60 grams (about 1 jumbo egg).
