Prevention Magazine Names Eggland's Best Eggs Winner of 2014 Cleanest Packaged Foods Award

For the second year in a row, Eggland's Best Organic eggs have been selected as a winner of Prevention's 100 Cleanest Packaged Foods Awards. Eggland's Best eggs come from hens fed a proprietary, all-vegetarian diet and are held to strict quality, freshness and nutritional standards.

This is the fourth consecutive year Prevention put packaged foods to the test to determine the best, healthiest, and for the second year, cleanest boxed and bagged products in their 100 Cleanest Packaged Food Awards. moreIn addition to tasting delicious, Eggland's Best eggs had to meet Prevention's strict dietary standards, to make the list.

Eggland's Best holds their eggs to the highest of standards and ensures its hen feed never contains added hormones, antibiotics or steroids of any kind and is free of any animal fat, animal byproducts, recycled or processed foods. In fact, a recent independent study from the Journal of Applied Poultry Research concluded that Eggland's Best's high-quality hen feed and superior production processes results in eggs that stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.

"At Eggland's Best we strive to provide consumers with eggs that have better taste, better nutrition and better freshness," said Charles T. Lanktree, President and CEO. "We are proud to see our efforts recognized by Prevention and are excited to receive the Cleanest Packaged Foods award for the second straight year!"

In addition to the organic variety, Eggland's Best eggs are also available in white and brown varieties, large, extra large, jumbo, cage free, hard-cooked and peeled, and liquid egg whites. Recently, Eggland's Best eggs were awarded "Product of the Year" in the eggs category by Product of the Year USA.

Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, four times the vitamin D, 10 times the vitamin E and more than double the omega-3 fatty acids than ordinary eggs.
