Men’s Health commissioned a team of food and nutrition experts to select foods based on a strict set of criteria, focusing on products with the most protein, fiber and healthy fats for the fewest calories and added sugars. The standards also favored healthy, unprocessed foods, and of course, foods with great taste. Eggland’s Best is excited to announce that EB Organic Eggs were a winner of this prestigious honor for the 2018 Best Foods for Men Awards.
In addition to choosing winners with superior nutrition and taste, Men’s Health hopes to help the growing number of males who are becoming the primary household food shoppers by curating a trusted selection of items. The 2018 Best Foods for Men awards will help shoppers break away from dull meals and still feel great about the food they put on the table for their family and friends.
“Our goal at Eggland’s Best is to only provide our customers with a 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 Men’s Health continues to recognize Eggland’s Best as one of the best and healthiest grocery items available that consumers can feel good about purchasing for their families.”
Eggland’s Best Organic eggs are produced by cage-free hens that are fed a wholesome, certified organic and all-vegetarian hen feed. This special feed contains no added hormones, antibiotics, steroids, animal by-products or recycled or processed foods. Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain 6x more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, 10x more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12. EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B5. In addition, independent testing has confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
“It’s no surprise that Eggland’s Best eggs continue to win prestigious health and nutrition awards,” said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. “I always feel confident recommending Eggland’s Best eggs over ordinary eggs to my clients since they will benefit from more nutrients like vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids – which are crucial for both men and women.
