Can We Eat Boiled Egg and Milk Together? (Expert Answer)

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat boiled eggs and milk together or one after another. Because there is no scientific proof that they are harmful when combined, and they may even enhance the protein quality and digestibility of each other.

Boiled eggs and milk both are healthy foods.

Boiled eggs contain protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12, while milk has protein, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D.

According to Ayurveda, boiled eggs and milk are incompatible foods that should not be eaten together.

Ayurveda believes that each food has its own taste, energy, and post-digestive effect, and combining foods with different qualities can disturb the digestive fire and cause toxins, allergies, and infections.

But according to science, there is no evidence that boiled eggs and milk are harmful when consumed together.

Some studies have even suggested that combining eggs and milk may increase the protein quality and digestibility of both foods.

However, some people may have allergies or intolerances to either eggs or milk, and they should avoid them regardless of the combination.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating boiled eggs and milk together you experience any side effects, such as nausea, bloating, gas, or diarrhea, then stop combining them.

And if you can tolerate them, then continue. However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of boiled eggs and milk you consume.

Because too much of either food can cause excess calories, cholesterol, or saturated fat intake, which may increase the risk of obesity, heart disease, or diabetes.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose fresh, organic, and hormone-free eggs and milk.

Because these are less likely to contain harmful bacteria, pesticides, or antibiotics that can affect your health.

You can store boiled eggs in the refrigerator for up to a week, and milk for up to five days after opening, as long as they are kept in airtight containers and away from strong-smelling foods.

Do not store boiled eggs or milk at room temperature, in direct sunlight, or near heat sources, as these can spoil them faster and make them unsafe to eat.

Finally, remember, boiled eggs and milk are nutritious foods that can provide many health benefits when consumed in moderation and as part of a balanced diet.

They can help you meet your protein, calcium, and vitamin needs, support your bone health, muscle growth, and immune system, and prevent anemia and osteoporosis.
