Food  is any substance consumed to  provide  nutritional support  for an organism.  Food is usually of plants, animals, fungal origin and contains essential  nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins or minerals. Combination of  certain foods is very important in one’s life. Wrong combination of foods leads to various illness and health hazards. In this article we see about the incompatibility of egg and curd.


Eggs are a nutrient goldmine. One large egg has varying amount of 13 essential vitamins and minerals; high quality proteins all for 70 calories. Eating 2 eggs a day can improve red blood cells in your blood. “An egg a day keep you healthy always”.


Curd  is obtained by coagulating milk in a process called curdling. Preparation of curd requires a lactobacillus bacteria. Curd makes your teeth and bones strong, improves immunity, improves vaginal health. Curd consumption is not good at night as it leads to mucus development. Curd is a great probiotic which improves gut activity.


Egg is a heat providing food while curd is a cooling food. Heat and cold foods should not interact with each other.  This combination  leads to higher chance of skin infections like white spots on your body. They will make your stomach work a lot harder and leads to diarrhea. Since egg and curd both have protein and curd have lactic acid and milk proteins so multiple protease need to function at a time. Due to this you may feel slight uncomfortable and nausea sometime. Protein is the most difficult to digest. So it is advised to eat one protein at a time for good health.


The concept of food combining is the idea that some foods digest well together while others do not. It is an essential part of understanding how to eat properly, just as discovering one’s constitution and state of imbalance is important for one’s health. Careful food combining an improves the quality of digestion and positively impact our overall health.
