Which is superior - boiled egg or raw egg?

Boiled egg is superior.

Raw egg contains a substance called avidin, which interferes with absorption of Vitamin B12. Boiling destroys Avidin. Thus the Vitamin B12 available in boiled egg is available for absorption.

So, if you want to take maximum advantage of Vitamin B12 present in eggs, boil them before you eat them.
