24 Apr Why Get YOLKED® Instead of Taking Creatine?
The short answer is that YOLKED® is a natural food, while creatine is not a food.
Why YOLKED® ?
Of course, we think of YOLKED® as much more than just a food, we think of it as “Egg Yolk Powder of the Gods.”
Sunny side up, poached and scrambled are delicious ways to enjoy eggs… but heat from the cooking process degrades many of the nutrients within egg yolk that are good for you. Drinking raw eggs is not appetizing to most people and is very much frowned upon by the fine folks at The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) due to the risk of contamination by very nasty microbes such as Salmonella, Listeria and Staphylococcus and others. An alternative is enjoying eggs that have been processed with non-thermal pasteurization. However, if you walk into your local diner and tell the server that you would like your eggs non-thermal pasteurized, you may receive a few strange looks.
Fortunately, all you need to do is get YOLKED® at yolked.com to experience an amazing new way to enjoy eggs.
About Our Process: High-Pressure Pasteurization (HPP)
Among the many remarkable scientific discoveries that French Microbiologist, Louis Pasteur is credited with, he is most well known for pasteurization, a process developed in 1864 that involves heating a liquid such as milk to destroy dangerous microbes. This simple process had a revolutionary impact on public health in the United States and throughout the world. About a century later, Food Scientists and Engineers began to actively pursue new methods of pasteurization that better retain the nutrients found within the food that we eat while effectively destroying harmful pathogens. One non-thermal pasteurization method known as pulsed-electric field or PEF pasteurization utilizes short pulses of electricity to destroy harmful pathogens in food.
Another non-thermal pasteurization method known as high-pressure pasteurization or HPP utilizes pressures that are greater than what one would experience if they were standing at the bottom of the deepest section of the Pacific Ocean to destroy microbial pathogens. Harnessing the power of non-thermal pasteurization technologies is just one of the many steps in the manufacturing process of YOLKED®.
Why Not Creatine?
Creatine is a chemical that is found within the body that plays an important role in metabolism and muscle function. Creatine is found at low levels in some natural sources but the creatine that is purchased as a sports supplement is manufactured in a chemical factory. Although creatine is relatively safe when consumed at low levels, it can be dangerous if abused and it is also not intended to be consumed by people under 18 years of age according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
As with any chemical that is produced through a complex manufacturing process, there is always the risk that impurities may be introduced during the process. Consuming excessive creatine has been reported to impair kidney and liver function.
