GH Tested: Eggland's Best Shell Eggs

GH Tested: Eggland's Best Shell Eggs

This kitchen staple just got upgraded.

Whether you're whipping them up scrambled or transforming them into homemade custard, eggs are undoubtedly a staple in practically every home. In 2019 alone, consumption of eggs in the United States was estimated at 289.5 per person. Eggland's Best, known for their signature red EB stamp, has completely transformed this kitchen staple with their proprietary all-vegetarian feed that produces more nutritious eggs that taste great to boot.

WHAT GH LIKES

  • SUPERIOR NUTRITION: In our evaluation, we found that by swapping out traditional generic eggs for Eggland's Best eggs, you're getting substantially more micronutrients and antioxidants. Just one large EB egg is an excellent source of Vitamins B2, B5, B12, D and E. They have more than double the vitamin B12 and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than ordinary eggs, plus six times more Vitamin D and ten times more Vitamin E to support a healthy immune system.
  • HIGH-QUALITY FEED: Eggland's Best hens are fed a wholesome, all-vegetarian diet that consists of a proprietary blend of grains, canola oil, rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp, and Vitamin E. Utilizing canola oil instead of animal fat in their feed reduces saturated fat levels of the eggs by 25% compared to traditional eggs and also provides an improved texture and taste.
  • STAY FRESH LONGER: Did you know that generic eggs don't have to be packed for up to 21 days after being laid? This can significantly reduce the freshness and quality of the eggs you end up purchasing at the supermarket. Eggland's Best sets strict standards for their eggs, requiring that they are packed within seven days of being laid and most are packed within 24 hours.
  • AWARD-WINNING TASTE: This versatile kitchen staple is not just a great protein-packed breakfast go-to, but also a vegetarian-friendly addition to just about any meal. The farm fresh flavor has consistently received superior taste awards for the past two decades and is a favorite among experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute.
