  • Egg yolks.

    Which is correct: The yolk of eggs IS white, or the yolk of eggs ARE white?

    "The yolk of eggs is white" would be grammatically correct and factually incorrect. I will not be misdirected!

        The yolk is singular, so it is paired with the singular 3rd person verb “is”: The yolk of the egg is yellow. The egg’s yolk is yellow. You can say, “Egg yolks are yellow” Or “The yolkS of eggS are yellow.” on a generalised note. When you speak about a single egg a singular verb should be followed.
