Today I put together a list of 52 egg sources and alternate names.
Eggs didn’t agree with me for years until immediately after a round of Rifaximin for SIBO, when I was able to have them daily, no problem. Several weeks later, eggs landed me in the ER. For many months, I was afraid of eggs altogether, even though I still suspected that it was the yolk, not the white, that sent me to the ER (which completely contradicts most studies).
It was really sad because I loved making my gluten-free buns and pouring an egg-white omelet over them. I longed for the days when I can freely eat eggs again.
(Updated in 2018 to add: The day did come when eggs no longer sent me to the ER, but I still suspect that my body rejects them. I notice a correlation oftentimes with eggs and cystic acne and various other problems. That said, I do not completely avoid them as of today.)
All of this said, eggs are a top allergen and intolerance and many people are very sensitive to them (again, usually the egg white not the egg yolk, but that’s a topic for another day). People who do not tolerate eggs can stay sick for a very long time because they don’t understand all the alternative names for eggs and egg sources in general.
I have 8+ lists like this (for different foods) in The Gutsy Girl’s Bible: an approach to healing the gut, 3.0. For today, perhaps this is just the list you’ve been looking for!
p.s. Although it’s a controversial book, I recently purchased Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. His stance on eggs is very negative, and I’m looking forward to reading more about why.
