Egg Yolk

Effects of Egg Yolk Proteins on the Longitudinal Bone Growth of Adolescent Male Rats

"The bone growth rate was significantly increased by yolk water-soluble protein (YSP, 100 mg/kg) administration for 5 d. The bone morphogenetic protein-2 immunostaining of growth plate was also increased. Considering the results, YSP can be used as a growth-promoting factor."

Egg yolk contains protein, lipid, ash, and carbohydrate.  It has a cholesterol content of 0.1%.  Mice were 3 weeks old.  Yolk water soluble protein promoted growth the most.
