  • Eggs are highly nutritious. They are considered an excellent source of high quality protein and provide significant amounts of several vitamins and minerals. Egg white is considered an ideal protein and is often a benchmark by which other proteins are measured, as it contains all the essential amino acids in the correct proportion for human nutrition.
  • Eggs contain powerful antioxidants such as selenium.
  • Eggs are a good source of niacin, folate, pantothenic acid and selenium and a source of riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin E, iron and phosphorus.
  • Eggs are an excellent source of Vitamin B12: eggs that are 59g mass and higher provide over 65% of the recommended dietary intake per serving (2 eggs).
  • Eggs are convenient, inexpensive, easy to prepare and easy to chew. They play an important role in a wide variety of recipes.
  • Through special feeding practices, it has been possible to produce eggs that contain substantially increased amounts of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, such as Pace Farm's Body Egg.
