|After my recent studies it became clear that the egg's design carefully compensated for this issue.
It put tons of biotin in the egg yolk. Egg yolks have one of the highest concentrations of biotin found in nature. So it is likely that you will not have a biotin deficiency if you consume the whole raw egg, yolk and white. It is also clear, however, that if you only consume raw egg whites, you are nearly guaranteed to develop a biotin deficiency unless you take a biotin supplement.
Feb2003, thank you for your elaborate post, above. I must have missed it earlier when it appears that we cross-posted!
Rachel J., that info is interesting. I'm confused now, however, because tboroson's post (I think it's post # 3 or 4, above) says that the enzymes in egg whites prevent the biotin absorption. :
