Albumen

The Albumen is the clear/white inside of the egg. It contains half the protein of an egg. As an egg gets older the egg white will slowly get more runny. Also when the weather is hot the egg white tends to run more also.

Chalaza

The Chalaza is a rope like structure that keeps the yoke centered in an egg They connect to both end of the egg and the yoke. This is sometimes mistaken for an embryo because of its white color.
