Protein in cooked eggs are more bioavailable than raw, and wole eggs more than egg whites. But raw eggs are still a great source of protein just make sure they have been pasturized.

Here is the article about the biotin depletion

http://www.mercola.com/2002/nov/13/eggs.htm

I read this article earlier this spring and I just skimmed over it again and it seems like he changed his stance on the issue (he even admits to it in the article). So I'm not too sure how much credit I give this guy.

Sounds too much like a Rocky movie to me. Scambled with Quark, beans, tomato and chilli... Yum good idea, I'm off to the kitchen
