Ok first that plush little egg would so be kidnapped by my little girl. Now what I learned. 25% less saturated fat than in an ordinary egg and Eggland’s Best producers submit samples each month of their Eggland’s Best hen feed to be evaluated in our laboratory for consistency, quality, and nutritional value as well as Eggland's Best eggs were also the 2002 - 2008 Winner of the “America's Best Tasting Egg” award. Every interesting facts indeed!

It is what it is said...

I learned 2 things by visiting their site (well two that I'm going to post about. First, who knew that EB had a blog?!

Second, I learned that their hen feed is tested monthly, in their lab, for consistency, quality, and nutritional value.

Heather B said...

I learned that according to the American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetic Association, one Eggland's Best egg can be exchanged for one medium-fat meat.

Pretty cool! I never realized how healthy they were. I'm going to have to give them a try!

emilybites said...

Honestly, I had no idea that one egg could be healthier than another egg...I always just figured an egg was an egg! I love that these have less cholesterol than normal eggs - that's a huge win! I love that they have a recipes section on their site too, i already bookmarked several things I want to make! This is a great find, thanks for sharing!

KathleenB said...

Wow! I always thought they just cost more....I didn't realize there is less saturated fat in them and that they are from cage free birds. I really like that!

LilyFox said...

I LOVE eggs and Eggland's truly are BETTER EGGS!LOVE THEM!!!

Kate said...

I'm blown away by the nutritional info! less calories and more of sooo many vitamins compared to regular eggs!

SolaMommy said...

Eggland's Best Organic and Cage Free eggs are laid by Rhode Island Red hens rather than Single-Comb White Leghorns. There are no nutritional differences between the white and brown eggs!

Jennifer said...

I learned that EB eggs are really beneficial to my exercise routine.

kimberphi said...

Never knew that a cloudy egg white (raw)indicates the presence of carbon dioxide and egg FRESHNESS!

Zuzu said...

It seems Eggland's Best Large, Cage Free and Organic Eggs was awarded the gold medal based on superior taste, appearance and freshness in a triple blind judging by the professional chefs of The American Masters of Taste. They also retain an independent auditing firm to randomly visit supermarkets around the country to evaluate the quality of Eggland’s Best eggs. They are higher in Vitamin E, D, B12, A, B2, and Folate.

Nice!

Manda said...

I learned a lot! The first thing that sticks out to me is that they have less cholesterol than a regular egg not to mention all the added vitamins! Good stuff!

ajmelheim said...

"An EB egg has less saturated fat and three times the amount of Omega 3 than what is found in an ordinary egg." Now that's great information!

Cindyn9178@yahoo.com said...

I learned that Eggland's Best does Hen Feed testing each month for consistency, quality and nutritional value. I also learned that many of their producers deliver the eggs to the stores within 24 to 48 hours of laying!

Marni G said...

I learned how to make hard cooked eggs! For some reason I have to google it every single time because I can't remember. Who knew 12 mintues...everything I found always said 3-5 minutes. And they have recipes on their site! I love finding new recipes. I'm definitely going to have to try the Asparagus Sformato...yum...and so low in calories...Love it

mermaidprincesa said...

I had no idea that a cloudy raw egg white indicates the presence of carbon dioxide. Interesting.

Amy said...

I had no idea how much more omega 3 are in egglands best eggs, and how to make a cake in a mug in 5 minutes on their recipes, lol.

Marji said...

Over the last few months I've switched to Eggland's Best. You can immediately tell the difference in the quality of the eggs and I won't go back to anything else! I'm trying to include more Omega 3's in my diet so my excerpt is: Eggland’s Best Eggs offer a great source of essential fatty acids that contain three times more Omega-3 essential fats than ordinary eggs.

Cynthia G said...

I learned they are higher in Vitamin E, at least 10 times more than in an ordinary egg and one Eggland's Best egg provides 25% of a person's recommended daily allowance of Vitamin E (wow).

Kelly said...

I enjoyed the tutorials on how to make the perfect eggs--and a recipe for meatloaf with hard-boiled eggs in the middle?! How novel! I also learned about the health benefits of Iodine...who knew?

Jenna J said...

I haven't ever tried Eggland's Best because, along with another commenter, I thought all eggs were made equal - not so apparently! I love the fact that Eggland's Best has an onsite USDA representative to make sure all is going as required! Most companies I am sure spend weeks preparing for infrequent visits from the USDA - but to always be at your best!? Way to go Eggland's Best!

sweetkttn said...

Would love, love, love, to win some of these eggs. They are the best! Thanks!

char104@sbcglobal.net

Amanda said...

They take a lot of care at Egglands Best to produce quality eggs! I would love to win a months supply! We love eggs!

Lacey said...

I thought all eggs were the same! In fact I've never really bought in to the healthy growing trend with foods (organic, etc.) but looks like i was wrong. My cholesterol is good, but not so much for my fiancé and he loves breakfast burritos! I'll definitely switch to Egglands Best for that.

Susan Lawson said...

What great website! I can tell they have put a lot of work into it! It is very user friendly! So in looking through the site I learned Eggland's Best is very green! They chose to package their eggs using packaging that is made from 100% recyclable packaging!
I also learned how they are higher in Omega 3! Love it!
"Eggland’s Best eggs contain 19% less cholesterol and 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs, and 115 mg of Omega 3, as compared to 37 mg in ordinary eggs. "

Lori said...

I usually buy Egglands Best because they really are a better egg. Love that they offer organic and cage free options.

Brooke said...

The Eggland’s Best polystyrene carton is recyclable.

Confessions From A Housewife said...

Eggland's Best large white egg contains just 175mg of Cholesterol compared to 215mg in an ordinary egg. Love it!

Sarah said...

I've noticed these eggs are more expensive so I usually don't buy them but after checking out the website, I think I will! They have so many benefits and they are higher in vitamins then the other competitors. I did not know that eggs were good for you eyes, and this egg has 25% more lutein than other eggs! I also learned that they are 25% less saturated fat. To me, that is reason enough to buy these eggs!

Can't wait to start cooking with them!!!

JAMIE said...

Wow, I am really moving towards organic and cage free meats and foods.

I visited the Eggland's best site and found out that Eggland's best eggs have LESS Cholesterol that normal eggs, which is fantastic, because I eat a lot of eggs and enjoy them thoroughly.

They also have less saturated fat and 3 times the Omega 3 than a typical egg. This is huge!

I'm always looking for better food options, and I think Eggland's best might just be the way to go. I grew up with farm fresh eggs, and I look forward to tasting and trying the difference.

Ryan Lawson said...

In looking through Eggland's Best Site I found they have 10X's more vitamin E than ordinary eggs. They also have lower choelesterol than ordinary eggs!
I am currently eating eggs as a source of protien in my daily diet. I found the site very informative!

Mary-Stewart said...

25% daily Vitamin E in one EB egg!? Sign me up! I love eggs and I need all the Vitamin E I can get. Also, did I mention I love eggs? 25% less saturated fat is a great bonus! :)

Misty Bradley said...

Wow! Thank you for sharing this. Higher in vitamins, 3x the Omega 3, and lower in cholesterol...I'm sold. I'll never buy anything but Eggland's Best if I can help it.

Aviva Goel said...

I love how their eggs are higherin vitamins! And cage free! How amazing!

US Sis said...

Cage free? Extra vitamins? Lower in cholesterol? More Omega3? Can it get any better? I am so changing over to EB eggs!

steffy said...

I learned a lot from their site and blog, so I wanted to share something that has also helped me lose 60 pounds so far!
People who eat eggs for breakfast not only consume an average of 400 less calories throughout the day but also lose 65% more weight than those who don't eat eggs! Plus, eggland's best eggs are lower in cholesterol than your average egg! Also, french toast is delicious! :D

Jeanne said...

EB have less cholesterol and more Omega 3s.

shabbylisaw said...

I used to choose eggs at the store that came packaged in that brown/gray chipboard type carton. I figured that would be better for the environment. But EB come in foam cartons and they are actually better for the environment (if recycled). They take less energy to produce, they protect the egg better during transporting, and they can be recycled into other items. If you can't recycle this foam in your area, EB lists and address where you can return them to. Cool!

Erin M. said...

I learned the difference between free range and cage free. I also learned that the green ring from a hard boiled egg is often due to cooking and cooling too fast... very interesting!
Looking forward to some great tasting eggs!

Anonymous said...

I knew EBs were healthier but didn't realize how much better for you they are than regular eggs. I use them all the time because the hens are cage free. I like that. Love the recipe section of the website.

I thought an egg was an egg. Although I buy Eggland's Best for taste and environmental reasons, I had no idea EB eggs had more vitamins and less cholesterol and saturated fat.

Jamie said...

I love eggs! Since being pregnant, its how I get most of my protein. Yum!

Trudie said...

I was really surprised to learn that Eggland's Eggs can be part of a cholesterol REDUCING diet! Eggs got such a bad rap for such a long time, I was thrilled to find that research shows the contrary! Everyone eat your Eggland's Eggs!!

Cheryl said...

snow day today and had TIME to make eggs! :)

Elizabeth Olive said...

When incorporated into a healthy diet, EB eggs can provide a simple way to increase the nutrient intake of several nutrients most Americans lack in their diet.  “One of the major barriers to healthy eating is lack of convenience,” said registered dietitian Julie Upton, MS, RD, co-author of Energy to Burn: The Ultimate Food and Nutrition Guide to Fuel Your Active Life.  “With increased amounts of Vitamin A, B2, B12, D and Omega-3 plus several other vitamins and minerals, Eggland’s Best eggs are a convenient nutrient booster.  As a healthy breakfast or snack, EB eggs provide the nutrition and energy to help you stay nourished and active all day long.”

Ree Donnelly said...

I learned the difference between cage-free hens and free-range hens...and a ton of other stuff!
I also had no idea that EB's eggs were that much more nutricious than regular eggs!!

Jessica Wright said...

Eggland's best provides 2 times more B-12, the vitamin that helps you feel more energetic, than other eggs. Almost 20% of your daily allowance of B-12. I also found a yummy recipe for Baked Eggs, with Tomatoes and Peppers I am going to try this weekend!

SoCalKal said...

Egglands best ARE the best! Totally better for us. Support breast cancer research. Have more omega 3. Fewer calories. No caged chickens. AMAZING eggs!

Stephanie said...

I learned that Egglands Best eggs provide an additional amount of Vitamin D which is really important to me!! I work in an office all day, and I need all the Vitamin D I can get!

I actually had no idea about Egglands Best eggs, but after learning about all the additional health benefits, I would be crazy not to start buying them! I eat an egg for breakfast most mornings!

Connie said...

Eggland’s Best Cage-Free and Eggland’s Best Organic are brown-shelled eggs that come from special breeds of hens, such as the Rhode Island Reds, which produce a brown egg, and are well adapted to the cage-free environment. I buy egglands best eggs and they truly taste better than other brands!

Maria said...

I love EB Eggs! I learned..."Eggland’s Best hen feed is a patented all-natural, all-vegetarian feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil, and an all-natural supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E."

Marknwdc said...

Eggland's Best has always been the first choice on my grocery list. From start to finish, they are a great addition to eating healthy.

They taste better than other eggs, in my humble opinion. I knew their hens were special, but I didn't realize they were fed a unique, healthy diet. Now it makes sense why the eggs are so delish...

Another thing I didn't know was Eggland's commitment to recycling. Its just the topper in the long list of reasons to buy them!

Lisa said...

Ten times more vitamin E than other eggs and twice as much vitamin D. Very important here in grey Seattle!

The Poteet Team said...

Part of maintaining that healthy lifestyle is to eat a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat, and high in whole grains, fruits & vegetables and healthy proteins. LOVE these eggs!

Mama Bear said...

Our family loves Eggland's Best and feel lucky we can get them easily here. Being raised on a farm gives me a different perspective on food. I'm glad they go the extra mile to ensure healthy chickens, a healthy diet, lots of Omega3 and lower saturated fat than the average egg. Count me as a fan!

Leigh said...

less cholesterol, more vitamins, less fat... very nice!!!

Debbie said...

They are much higher in nutrients now, and I love the idea of cage free chickens. Thanks, Eggland!

Anonymous said...

>vitamins, <cholesterol, cage free, not animal by-products in their feed, high quality plant/grains. I can just see the reds smile and they cluck around in their yard! Announcing the arrival f their eggs! Better than ever! Look look look! Fluff out their feathers, strut with pride

Lori said...

I never knew cholesterol and saturated fat could vary. I figured it was the same for every egg.

Marikay said...

Three times the Omega 3's?! Dr.Oz was just talking about getting more Omega 3's the other day!

Colleen C. said...

I learned that eggland's best eggs have less saturated fat and more vitamins than regular eggs. I did not realize that they were more nutritious. I thought all eggs were the same.

Angela said...

I didn't know that Eggland's Best eggs have less fat - that's one of my main concerns with eating egg yolks. I also didn't realize they have additional Vitamin E and other vitamins - I'm definitely interested in them after reading more about them.

Paula - bell'alimento said...

I LOVE EB eggs. They're incredible. And hello 25% less saturated fat ; )

momof2girls said...

I lived off these when I was pregnant! I learned that Eggland’s Best eggs are an excellent source of Vitamin B-12, with at least 20% of your daily B-12 needs found in just one large EB egg! That is more than twice the amount of B-12 found in ordinary eggs. That’s a good egg!

Egglands Best are a much healthier alternative to other eggs. It's nice to know we can do something healthy for our bodies.

Meghan said...

I'm excited to learn the have more Vitamin D. They've been talking a lot about how most of us are lacking in Vitamin D from working indoors so much. And I love they don't use any hormones in their hen feed. Thanks!

Ellie said...

Hens need animal protein to have a normal healthy diet. They are not vegetarian and how you can stop them eating the bugs and insects that they find when walking around outside I can't imagine. Therefore they are not actually vegetarian fed hens. Sorry, but this is very misleading.

Sherry M said...

I use these eggs all the time. It might be just me but I think they have a better taste....
shezzo89@yahoo.com

Melissa Spositi said...

I have learned that Eggland's Best eggs are so much better for you than others, they offer more omega3s and less saturated fat. Also the hens are not injected with any type of hormone like others are. These eggs are simply just the best for everyone!

emily said...

My mom has always told me to spend more money to buy better eggs, but I've never listened. After checking the out EB website, I found out just how much better & more nutritious they are! I would love to win this giveaway!

Sharon said...

I love eggland's best. However, I didn't know that they were lower in cholesterol than other eggs until I visited their website.

Bree said...

Love Egglands! I visited their site and found out they are one of the Top Ten Fitness foods! That's awesome!

Awesome Weight Watchers Points Plus Power Food. You go Egglands Best !!!

Denise said...

Less fat, higher in Omega 3, recyclable packaging and they taste the 'best'!
I haven't tasted them, but I'm intrigued, I'll be looking for these in my supermarket, I honestly don't think they stock em,... perhaps Target does. Or even better, I might win a supply of them :)

JaNelle @ mylifeasnickijay.com said...

I didn't realize Eggland’s Best hen feed is a patented all-natural, all-vegetarian feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil, and an all-natural supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. It's patented people!! Good Stuff!

beida-fish said...

I love Eggland's Best but I didn't realize that the polystyrene cartons are recyclable! That's awesome! I can be healthy and green!

Egglands Best eggs has less saturated fat and three times the amount of Omega 3 than what is found in an ordinary eggs! WOW! Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway! Love your blogs!

I learned that they use Patented Hen Feed that lets them claim that their eggs are compatible with Cholesterol Reducing Diet and Method of Producing the Same.

Hope said...

I learned that Eggland's Best eggs are very good for my body by helping me get my healthy Omega-3's! I LOVE Eggland's best and would LOVE to win this giveaway!! How awesome!!

Tena said...

I've always wondered why some of the eggs are slightly different in size. At the website I learned that "A dozen Large eggs must have a total minimum weight of 24 ounces". Pretty cool!

lazyperfection said...

What a great giveaway!! As someone who has to watch their cholesterol, it was great to see that their eggs were lower than normal eggs.

Sonia B. said...

I actually enjoyed learning about their polystyrene packing and how its recyclable!

ajscd said...

I never realized that EB eggs had more vitamins/minerals than regular eggs. And a few less calories, too. :) As an expecting momma, I love that these have additional DHA.

Marrisa said...

If you truly think that "cage free" hens are able to freely "roam around in the sun and grass" and live a humane and leisurely life while laying eggs for your consumption, I implore you to realize otherwise. It is a gross misconception.

Even the Eggland's Best website ITSELF admits that this is not the case: "The Eggland's Best Cage-Free and Organic eggs are from cage-free hens. Cage-free means the hens can roam around in a very large building, but do not have outdoor access like free-range hens. " http://www.egglandsbest.com/egglands-eggs/faq/hen-treatment.aspx


Here is more information about the misconceptions associated with terms such as cage free and free range: http://www.farmsanctuary.org/issues/factoryfarming/humane_labeling/truth_behind_labeling.html

Please realize that the labels "cage free" "free range" and even "organic" have little bearing on whether the animals receive humane treatment. If this is your concern, the "best egg" is one which you purchase from a small, independent organic farmer who you can personally speak to about these matters. Check out your local Farmer's market.

Anonymous said...

"The term "Free Range" conjures up images of birds roaming freely, but in fact this is often far from reality. The only requirement the USDA has for birds or livestock labeled free-range is that they are not kept in pens. There are no requirements pertaining to the size of the area, the number of birds per square foot, or the type of feed."
