Keeping Easter eggs for years and eating them later is dangerous. Such a warning on Tuesday, May 4, was made by the rector of the St. George Orthodox Church in Nakhabino near Moscow, Priest Pavel Ostrovsky.
“If someone thinks that the consecrated eggs are stored for years and do not deteriorate, they can check it, but they just need to make an appointment with a gastroenterologist in advance. On Easter, food is consecrated, but, of course, eggs deteriorate, like all other products, “RIA Novosti quotes him.
On May 1, nutritionist of the Moscow Department of Health, Antonina Starodubova, said that natural dyes for eggs are safe and do not affect their nutritional value. However, the expert warned that it is not worth using dyes that are not provided for products for painting, this can be harmful to health.
On April 28, the rector of the Moscow Church of the Intercession of the Most Holy Theotokos on Gorodnya, Archpriest Pavel Velikanov, said that all the products that are used for the festive meal can be consecrated on Easter.
