14.5     Where does the water present in the egg go after boiling the egg?

Due to denaturation of proteins, globules unfold and helix gets uncoiled which changes its biological activity. In denaturation, secondary and tertiary structures are destroyed whereas primary structure remains the same.

Due to this process (denaturation of proteins) coagulation of egg take place while boiling. In egg, the globular protein changes into a rubber-like structure which is responsible for absorption of water.
