They say you are what you eat. And while it may sound cliché, if you’re trying to eat well, it’s worth taking the phrase as smart advice. Think about it: If you strive to eat a wholesome diet, the food you eat should come from animals that eat wholesome diets, too.

Eggs are a staple when it comes to eating well. But it’s easy to forget about what the hens — who laid the eggs that are scrambled next to your toast or hard-boiled on top of your salad — have eaten. The better the hens’ diet is, the more nutritious the eggs they produce will be. Luckily, Eggland’s Best® knows all about this.

Healthy, Well-Fed Hens Produce Better Eggs

It’s simple: Eggland’s Best Eggs taste great because their hens are fed well. Generic feed can be, well, generic. It can be full of unidentifiable ingredients, processed food, and even animal byproducts. But the feed that Eggland’s Best uses is hardly that. Instead, it’s an all-vegetarian feed that consists of whole grains, canola oil, rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp, vitamin E, and more. That means it’s got a whole lot more vitamins and minerals than generic feed. It also doesn’t contain any recycled or processed food, or any animal byproducts. And Eggland’s Best never uses hormones, steroids, or antibiotics.

All of these things add up to eggs that have superior nutrition. The high-quality ingredients in Eggland’s Best feed result in eggs that contain six times the amount of vitamin D, 10 times more vitamin E, and 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs. They’re also a great source for omega-3 fatty acids and the B vitamins B2, B5, and B12.
