Eggland's Best Foodtography Contest," said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist

nutrition and taste to any dish, which is why they are the only eggs I recommend

Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent
less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and
more than double the vitamin B12. EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2
(Riboflavin) and vitamin B5. EB's superior nutritional profile is due to its proprietary
all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome
supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent
testing has revealed that Eggland's Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs,
which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
