Eggland’s Best Awarded “Best Egg” On Men’s Health Magazine’s Annual List of 125 Best Foods For Men
America’s No. 1 Branded Egg Takes Home Award For Eight Year In A Row
Cedar Knolls, NJ, October 12, 2012 – Men’s Health magazine has released their annual list of “125 Best Foods for Men,” and awarded Eggland’s Best (EB) as the “best egg” in the dairy and deli category. After tasting, testing and analyzing over 1,000 supermarket products and awarding points to products that contain the fewest calories and deliver the most protein and fiber, Men’s Health magazine selected Eggland’s Best, citing their superior nutrition, taste and “rich, buttery yolks”.
“Eggland’s Best is honored to be awarded as one of Men’s Health magazine’s ‘125 Best Foods for Men’ for the eighth consecutive year,” said Charles Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “It is a privilege to take home this award for so many years in a row, and we are thrilled that Men’s Health continues to recognize Eggland’s Best for our superior taste, nutrition and quality.”
Eggland’s Best received this year’s Men’s Health “125 Best Foods for Men” award for their Organic egg variety. Eggland’s Best eggs are also available in large, extra large, jumbo, cage free, hard-cooked and liquid egg whites varieties. What sets Eggland’s Best apart from ordinary eggs is their wholesome, vegetarian hen feed, strict quality assurance program and localized production, enabling delivery of the freshest possible and best tasting Eggland’s Best eggs to supermarkets.
As a result of the specialized feed, Eggland’s Best eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, 10 times the vitamin E, twice the amount of vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids than ordinary eggs, and are a good source of vitamins B2 (riboflavin), B5 and B12. In addition, Eggland’s Best eggs have a harder shell, plumper yolk and are creamier in consistency compared to ordinary eggs. These benefits all contribute to Eggland’s Best winning the Gold Medal for Superior Taste for the last 10 years.
