Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins, minerals, and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin. These carotenoids may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in older adults. Eggs are also a good source of the vitamin-like compound choline, which enhances brain development and memory.

Organic eggs are laid by hens that eat only organic feed. Pasture-raised eggs are laid by hens that spend their days outside on fresh pastures instead of cooped up in small cages or huddled together in cage-free barns. Pasture-raised eggs are lower in cholesterol and higher in vitamins and omega-3 fats than conventional eggs. Choosing organic pasture-raised eggs is the healthiest choice for both you and our feathered friends!
