Why will a turtle's egg not coagulate when cooked?
#82667. Asked by zbeckabee. (Jun 28 07 9:20 PM)
Turtles lay eggs, which are slightly soft and leathery. Their albumen is white and contains a different protein than do bird eggs, such that it will not coagulate when cooked. Turtle eggs prepared to eat consist mainly of yolk.
