A fresh egg when splitting, the unflattened, yellow-colored, bulging bud is seen with a central position. The clear, transparent slightly yellow, firm and dense (thick, viscous) and remains collected. Its smell should be soft and pleasant, to “egg”. When it is not fresh the yolk is flattened and the clear, thin and fluid (liquid) and extends into the container. Another way to know the freshness of an egg is by placing it in a container with salt water, if you go to the bottom is fresh and the more it floats is less fresh, and if it reaches the surface is damaged.
