Eggland’s Best eggs have been recognized as one of the 26 best, healthiest foods by Prevention Magazine in the “2012 Healthy Food Awards”. This is the second year in a row EB has received this prestigious award from Prevention.
The 2012 Healthy Food Awards evaluated over 500 foods based on strict criteria, including whether the food provided a significant amount of fiber, protein, and essential vitamins. Aside from high-quality nutrition, selections were also based on delicious taste. Eggland’s Best was the only egg appearing on the list, with their organic variety being highlighted as the winner.
“Eggs are a great source of protein and hard-to-get nutrients like choline and lutein, but some eggs are better than others,” says Prevention.
All varieties of Eggland’s Best large eggs have 35% more lutein than ordinary eggs, and have 125 mg of choline. EB eggs are also an excellent source of Vitamins D, E, and B12 and are a good source of Vitamins B2 & B5.
