The literal meaning of the term “come huevos” is “eat eggs”. In Costa Rica and Latin America, the term is a derogatory one. However, its literal meaning is applicable here and without the derogatory connotation because, in Costa Rica people do in fact eat a lot of eggs.

[two_third]According to findings of the Cámara Nacional de Avicultores de Costa Rica (National Poultry Chamber), in 2012 the number of eggs consumed per capita in Costa Rica is 16 eggs a month, that is to say, 200 a year. Ana González, an adviser of Avicultores, explains that the average Latin American consumption is about 100 eggs a year, however, Mexico leads with one egg per day per capita.

The Food and Agriculature Organizaion of the United Nations (FAO) considers the egg the most nutritious in nature.

However, many still restrict including an egg in their diet because it is thought that it can cause cholesterol problems and leads to fatness.

Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline, and are widely used in cookery. Due to their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) categorizes eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid. Despite the nutritional value of eggs, there are some potential health issues arising from egg quality, storage, and individual allergies.[/two_third]


To Fridge of Not to Fridge?

Go buy eggs in Costa Rica and you’ll find them sitting on an unrefrigerated shelf.
