    According to most books I have read eggs have the highest rate of absortion when it comes to protein in the human body.

    What I want to know is in what form. Raw eggs? Hard boiled? Fried??

    Basically what is the most efficient way to get this protein in fast? I like to add a bit of egg whites to my shakes sometimes, however, I am not sure if I am reaping the benefits as they are uncooked.

    cooking denatures the protein a bit, but then again I have seen studies that say our bodies don't digest undenatured food very well....so :dunno:
