(4 months ago)
CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J: It's no surprise that year after year, getting in shape and eating more healthily continue to be the most popular resolutions made by Americans nationwide. Consumers looking for easy to prepare, nutritious foods to help with their resolutions need look no further. Eggland's Best (EB) eggs have been providing better nutrition and better taste than ordinary eggs for more than 25 years.
"The New Year is a time to reflect on the past and look ahead to the future," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "At Eggland's Best, we continue to innovate to provide the best egg possible...the best nutrition, quality, taste, and freshness that consumers expect and deserve."
Recently, the country's leading weight loss service announced that eggs are now included on its zero-points food list. And since Eggland's Best eggs have significantly more nutrition than ordinary eggs, consumers can feel even better about including EB eggs as part of their New Year's resolutions.
"Many health and nutrition organizations are finally recognizing eggs for the nutrient powerhouse they are," said Dawn Jackson Blatner, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. "But not all eggs are created equal - Eggland's Best eggs have 25% less saturated fat, six times more vitamin D, more than double the omega-3s and more than double the vitamin B12 than ordinary eggs, making them the best egg option to maximize your nutritional intake."
The most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) states that eggs are an affordable, accessible, nutrient-rich source of high-quality protein that can help Americans build healthier lives. Eggs are also one of the few natural foods that are a good source of vitamin D, which according to the DGA is a nutrient of concern for under-consumption since it is extremely important for bone health.
"Vitamin D is a critical nutrient for optimal health and most of us don't get enough because it can be difficult to get the right amount through food," said Blatner. "With six times more vitamin D and other superior nutrients, Eggland's Best eggs are an easy and delicious choice for those looking to naturally get the very best nutrition available...and this is why they are the only eggs I recommend to my clients and serve my family."
In addition to six times more vitamin D than ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best eggs also contain 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double the amount of vitamin B12. EB's superior nutrition 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 shown 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.
EB eggs continues to win numerous awards year over year for its superior taste and nutrition from prestigious organizations including the SELF Healthy Food Awards, Men's Health Best Food for Men, Men's Health Protein Awards, Women's Choice Award and many more. EB eggs are available in large, extra-large, jumbo, cage free, organic, hard-cooked, cage free and organic hard-cooked, liquid egg whites, and are certified Kosher.
