Farm-Fresh Eggs vs. Supermarket Eggs

Aug 22, 2011 05:29PM ● Published by Anonymous

An egg is an egg is an egg—right? Maybe not!

The “incredible edible” offers more health benefits if you pick up a carton straight from a farmer versus purchasing conventional eggs in the supermarket. It turns out that eggs from chickens raised on a pasture, which are truly free-range, have one-third less cholesterol and onefourth less saturated fat.

The nutritional breakdown is different than commercially raised eggs due to the diet that free-range birds eat. Their super-eggs are also rife with nutritional benefits: two-thirds more vitamin A, two times more omega-3 fatty acids, three times more vitamin E, and seven times more beta carotene.

Considering that bad rap that this breakfast staple has gotten over recent years, this news is eggcellent.
