    Als een ei te gaar gekookt wordt, verschijnt er soms een groenachtige ring rond de eidooier. Dit is het resultaat van ijzer- en zwavelsamenstellingen in het ei. Het kan ook vóórkomen wanneer er veel ijzer in het kokende water zit. De groene ring beïnvloedt noch smaak noch de samenstelling.[1] — If an egg is cooked too well, there sometimes appears a greenish ring around the egg yolk. This is the result of compositions of iron and sulfur in the egg. It can also occur whenever there is much iron in the cooking water. The green ring influences neither the taste nor the composition.
