As a runner and a busy mom, I have been known to rely on eggs -- in the form of frittatas or as hard-boiled additions to hearty salads -- for quick, protein-packed dinners. So, when I was contacted to try out Eggland's Best eggs, I said yes right away.
Then I separated, frothed, beat, baked and ate!
I found the Eggland's Best eggs to be quite fresh. They separated easily and none of the eggs stuck to the shell (it's happened!), which usually tells me an egg isn't very fresh. The egg whites frothed up quickly and the recipes I made with the eggs tasted good.
But, with eggs, one of the most important aspects is the nutritional value. Here's where Eggland's Best eggs really shine.
Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best eggs deliver higher levels of important nutrients like vitamin A, D, E, B2 and B12, along with lower levels of saturated fat and cholesterol. Each egg also contains 115mg of Omega-3, compared to 37mg in most regular eggs. I'm trying to increase the amount of Omega-3 that my family eats so this was good news. I've also been supplementing our vitamin D intake and each Eggland's Best egg contains 80IUs of D, compared to 18IUs in most regular eggs. The overall enhanced nutritional values of these eggs really appeals to me. It's one more way that I can improve my family's diet -- and an easy one at that!
