NZ Lifestyle Block - - Feature -

QUAIL EGGS are pop­u­lar in Chi­nese medicine where heal­ers claim they help with an ar­ray of ill­nesses in­clud­ing asthma and hayfever, in­crease sex­ual ap­petite and stim­u­late brain func­tion. In com­par­i­son to a chicken egg, quail eggs have: • 2% more pro­tein • three times as much Vi­ta­min B1 • five times more iron and potas­sium • dou­ble the amount of vi­ta­min A and B2 • higher lev­els of phos­pho­rous and cal­cium

Quail eggs are also a valu­able source of vi­ta­min D, mag­ne­sium, zinc, cop­per, and other es­sen­tial mi­cro-nu­tri­ents, min­er­als and amino acids.
