I think that myth has been pretty much debunked. Both Mary Straus ( and Lew Olson ( are experts in the field of nutrition, esp. raw food and neither one thinks there is any problem with raw egg whites. My dogs get a raw egg every day, have done for years, and have never had a problem because of the whites not being cooked.

BTW - why on earth would you want to bake an eggshell?
