    [FONT=&quot]Compared to a chickens egg, the average duck egg is approximately 30% bigger. Its nutritional value is therefore a bit higher too. Duck eggs contain all eight of the amino acids essential for a healthy body and loads of vitamins and minerals. Eat an egg a day and keep the doctor away![/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Vitamins B1, B2, A, D, E [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Phosphorous [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Sulphur [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Potassium [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Calcium (more if you eat the shell although this is not recommended) [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Zinc [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Tryglyerides [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Phospholipids [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Lecithin [/FONT]
    ·[FONT=&quot] Choline [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]You may have spotted that Vitamin C is missing from this list so you should drink a glass of orange juice with your boiled egg to make sure you don't get scurvy. Duck eggs don't contain carbohydrates but they do have:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Energy:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] 108kcal
    Protein: 9.5g (about 15% of an adults recommended daily allowance)
    Fat: 7.3g[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]In case you were wondering, the egg white contains about 20 calories and the yolk contains about 78 calories. The yolk contains some cholesterol so if you need to keep an eye on levels you shouldn\'t eat more than one egg a day.[/FONT]
