Good information, Big O!

I've always been leery of leaving any white attached thinking it might cause issues, but will need to rethink this and relax a little given your experience. Thank you for input on this interesting topic!

Take care,

I was thinking about grinding some egg shell to a powder and adding it to my next batch of food that I make. Is there a better calcium product to use in this situation?

I feed Raw food to my dog. I believe an egg shell has about 800mg of Cal. I used to just toss them in true food processor but, they weren't small enough to be completely digested.

Now, I rinse them, dry with a paper towel, then put them on a coffee bean grinder. That might be a good way to process them for shrimp.
