Why should I eat free range eggs?

(information courtesy of Mother Earth News research project 2007)

Most eggs produced in 'battery cages' or 'barns' that are currently sold in shops and supermarkets contain far less nutritional goodness than eggs produced by hens raised on pasture or woodland. That's the conclusion reached following the completion of the Mother Earth News project in 2007. Testing found that compared to official nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from free range hens may contain:

* 1/3 less cholesterol * 1/4 less saturated fat
* 2/3 more vitamin A * 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
* 3 times more vitamin E * 7 times more beta carotene

Food for thought!
