Cedar Knolls, NJ – January 16, 2018 – After reviewing thousands and thousands of products, Eat This, Not That!, the most trusted publication and online source for nutrition information, has selected Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs as a top breakfast food winner in its 2018 Food Awards. The Eat This, Not That! Annual Food Awards list was created to help shoppers choose the cleanest, healthiest and best foods at the supermarket while avoiding the sugar and calorie catastrophes lurking on grocery store shelves. Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs were also recently named by Eat This, Not That! as a “Best Protein Snack at the Supermarket” in 2017 and won “Best Snack for Weight Loss” in 2016.
Ten thousand new food products were introduced into grocery stores last year, making it difficult for consumers to choose the cleanest and healthiest ones on the market. Luckily, Eat This, Not That! scoured the aisles for the best of the best of foodstuffs to be honored as the best packaged groceries in the supermarket. The award recognizes Eggland’s Best for being the ultimate healthy food swap packed with superior nutrition that will bring shoppers one step closer to achieving better overall health, especially in the new year.
“At Eggland’s Best we are committed to providing the only nutritionally superior egg that has the best quality, taste and freshness,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “We are honored that Eat This, Not That! continues to recognize Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled eggs as one of the best and healthiest grocery items available that consumers can feel good about purchasing for their families.”
Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled eggs are available in classic, cage free, and organic varieties in various package sizes. Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12. EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B5. EB’s superior nutritional profile 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.
“It’s no surprise that Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled eggs were once again honored by Eat This, Not That!,” said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. “They have the same superior nutrition as other Eggland’s Best products, plus the convenience of being ready-to-eat right out of the package, which is why they are the only hard-cooked eggs I recommend to my clients and serve to my family.”
