Prevention Magazine Names Eggland’s Best Eggs  Winner of 2016 Cleanest Packaged Food Award

Cedar Knolls, NJ, March 8, 2016 –Prevention magazine has revealed their annual “Cleanest Packaged Food Awards” and for the third time, Eggland’s Best has made their list of clean products for consumers to pick up at the grocery store. Prevention’s list consists of food products that are nutritious, clean and of course, taste absolutely delicious. This year, Eggland’s Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs were awarded a coveted spot on the list due to their superior nutritional profile, great taste, and convenience.

“I am always searching for the most nutritious foods that I feel confident recommending to my patients,” said Registered Dietitian Lyssie Lakatos. “Eggs are a staple in many diets and I always recommend Eggland’s Best eggs. By choosing EB eggs, my clients are benefiting from a great tasting product with more nutrients like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids.”

Eggland’s Best eggs are nutritionally superior to ordinary eggs and have 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3 fatty acids, ten times more vitamin E, and five times more vitamin D. EB eggs are nutritionally superior due to their proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil, and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E.

“Providing consumers with an egg that is not only better in taste, but also better in nutrition and freshness, is the top priority here at Eggland’s Best,” said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland’s Best. “It is an honor for us to be chosen by Prevention because it reinforces our mission to provide consumers with a fresher, better tasting, and nutritionally superior product that can be part of a healthy diet.”

In addition to their Hard-Cooked Peeled Egg variety, Eggland’s Best eggs are available in large, extra-large, jumbo, cage free, organic, liquid egg whites, and are certified Kosher.
