A question about protein 2 !
« on: April 26, 2007, 10:31:15 PM »
The question is  " If an egg is cooked carefully, the white portion may solidify while the yolk remains fluid. Both egg white and the egg yolk contains proteins. Why might there be this difference in terms of protein denaturation? "

what you mean in "cooked carefully"?
whenever people agree with me, I always feel I must be wrong

I would assume that he means that the egg isnt cooked fully. The egg yolk has alot of fat, about 75x as much as the yolk. The fat helps protect the protein from denaturing.
