In the scientific literature, data on duck egg is not as extensive as that on hen egg. Besides, duck egg is popular in some parts of India on its own merits while in other parts it is not much in demand due to its characteristic pungent flavour and taste. A substantial quantity of duck eggs is available in parts of Bengal, Orissa, Andhra and Kerala and is not finding appropriate use due to some prejudice. Therefore, systematic analysis of duck egg, proximate and in terms of characteristic fractions, is reported in this paper.
