My Egg Yolks Are Freakishly White http://kunc.org/post/help-my-egg-yolks-are-freakishly-white Dear Salt,<p>I recently joined President Obama on his trip through Africa, and I brought a mystery home with me.

In Senegal and South Africa, everything seemed normal. Then we arrived at the final stop of the trip, in Tanzania. When I picked up my vegetable omelet from the breakfast buffet at my hotel in Dar es Salaam, one glance suggested they'd accidentally made an egg white omelet. No big deal.
