What is the egg’s white substance in Raw Eggs?

Let’s debunk a few myths about the string in your egg yolk. No, that is not a vein or the umbilical chord of a chick. Although it appears to be an odd portion of the egg, it is actually perfectly normal and required for an egg to mature safely. It is known as a chalaza. In an egg, there are two chalazae: one hangs from the top of the shell and the other from the bottom. In essence, these protein-based rope-like structures bind to the yolk to shield it from pushing against the eggshell’s walls.

Is it okay to consume it?

Absolutely. The chalaza is once again a completely typical component of an egg, but if seeing it makes you queasy, don’t worry—they usually vanish after cooking. Even though you could be confused by a white thread adjacent to a golden yolk, the presence of the chalaza in a Raw Eggs is a sign of freshness. Your eggs may have been sitting in the fridge for too long if the white string is not visible.
