About egg yolk
The egg yolk is the yellow inside an egg. Its primary purpose is to serve as a food reserve for the developing embryo. The clear part which surrounds the yolk is known as the egg white or albumen. They are a good source of protein, iron, vitamins A and D. Egg yolks are also high in cholesterol (about 213 milligrams per egg).
