But, when you eat an Eggland’s Best egg, you’re getting a protein-packed food that has 25% less saturated fat, 10 times more vitamin E, 4 times more vitamin D, more than double the omega-3 and is just 60 calories. Plus, Eggland’s Best eggs are fresher, and stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
Protein is an essential nutrient for our bodies for many reasons: it is the major structural component of all cells in our bodies, especially our muscles; it is needed to grow body tissue and repair body cells as they wear out; and it is needed to form blood cells.
