the average masses of eggs, whites, yolks

for general purposes, the egg consists of shell, whites, and yolk (by mass, approximately 10%, 59%, and 31% respectively). the average mass of an intact USDA-graded extra-large egg is 63g, of an intact USDA-graded large egg is 56g (sources disagree).

the approximate masses of whites and yolks for extra-large and large eggs: 37g/19.5g and 33g/17.5g.

this information is surprisingly difficult to discover on the internet. i know that you stay up at night wondering about these things.
