Question eggs

Nov 26, 2019
why does an egg have air pocket?
The blunt end of an egg has an air pocket between the inner and outer shell membranes. This enlarges as the egg loses moisture during storage. Keeping the air pocket at the top helps to keep the yolk centred within the egg. It also prevents the air pocket from rupturing, which reduces the risk of the egg spoiling.

PS: Interesting question but didn't know the answer either. Had looked this up myself to answer the question. Thank you for asking as well as learning something new :)
