What’s in an Eggland’s Best Egg? The Importance of the Yolks!

An entire Eggland’s Best egg is a delicious and nutritious way to get so many important vitamins and minerals.  While the egg whites contain a majority of the egg’s protein, it’s the yolk that contains almost all of the essential nutrients in an EB egg!

The egg yolk contains the following nutrients:
 
All of the egg’s Vitamin A, D, and E
All of the egg’s Omega-3 fatty acids.
Almost all of the Vitamin B12, Vitamin B3, choline and folic acid
         100% of the lutein
         93% of the Vitamin B6
         90% of the Thiamin
         76% of the biotin
         73% of the inositol
         50% of the niacin
         44% of the protein  
         42% of the riboflavin
…and substantial portions of the egg’s mineral content

Whether it’s a hard-cooked EB egg for a midday snack, a tasty omelet for breakfast, or in your favorite quiche, it’s the rich, yellow yolk in an EB egg that will bring you the very best in taste and nutrition!
