Egg-stremely Confusing

By Sean | In Nutrition | on May 16, 2012

Ever find yourself at the local grocery store or better yet local farmers’ market and you walk up the area where the eggs are kept and notice how many different options are available?  Egg cartons say things like “natural”, “omega-3”, “organic”, “cage-free”, “free-range”, “pastured”, “certified humane”, etc. so how do we make informed decisions about where our money goes and what is really the difference between all the jargon on the carton?  Stronger, Faster, Healthier recently posted a link to a Rodale News article entitled “The Truth About Your Eggs” that clarifies exactly what the labels mean and can we trust that the higher prices ensure better quality.  The article is a very short read and the clicking from page to page will take you longer than it will to actually read the information on the page itself, so please read more here or you can hit all the pages individually by clicking the links below on the various labels:

Become a more knowledgeable consumer and make informed decisions with your hard earned cash and weigh your options between cost and quality.

    Interesting. So what kind of eggs are best? I’m still a little confused. My best bet is to look for USDA Organic or Animal Welfare Approved?

    Has anyone found a brand of eggs, or a stand at the farmers market, that are best?

    Amy, your grocery budget will probably dictate what you’re willing to pay for, but from a nutritional standpoint pastured eggs are the best option with organic being the next best. Hope that helps.
