Nature's Multivitamin There was this commercial on TV when I was growing up that had this silly little jingle: "the incredible, edible egg". It was the kind of jingle that gets stuck in your head for hours. The commercial wasn't lying, the egg really is incredible. It's sometimes referred to as Nature's Multivitamin which is a pretty powerful title to hold. The nutritional information related to the egg is vast.
