Conventional, Organic or Omega 3 enriched EGGS?
Eggs are a rich source of vitamins, including A, E and K and a range of B vitamins such as B12 (energy), riboflavin and folic acid.
• Eggs also contain all eight essential amino acids needed for optimal muscle recovery and building valuable minerals like calcium, zinc and iron.
• An average egg contains about 6-7 grams of protein.
However, the protein content does depend on the size of the egg;
• Small egg (38 grams): 4.9 grams of protein
• Medium egg (44 grams): 5.7 grams of protein
• Large egg (50 grams): 6.5 grams of protein
• Extra-large egg (56 grams): 7.3 grams of protein
• An egg yolk contains about 5 grams of fat BUT only a small proportion of this is saturated fat (Bad Fat) - about 1.6 grams.
A study compared the fatty acid composition of conventional, organic and omega 3 enriched eggs shown;
• Omega-3 eggs had 39% less Arachidonic Acid, an inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acid that most people eat too much of.
• Omega-3 eggs had 5 times as much Omega-3 as the conventional eggs.
• There was very little difference between organic and conventional eggs.
It is clear that hens fed an omega-3 enriched diets lay eggs that are much higher in Omega-3 than conventional eggs.
• Egg shell and yolk color may vary and has no relationship to egg quality, flavor or nutritive value.
• The color of an egg shell (brown or white) is determined entirely by the breed of chicken laying it.
