CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- After extensive research, Eat This, Not That, the most trusted publication and online source for nutrition information, has named Eggland's Best as one of their "Best Snacks for Weight Loss."
In a recent study, researchers found participants lost significantly more body weight when they added low-sugar, high-protein snacks to their daily food routine. To help consumers in the snacking department, the Eat This, Not That team studied and sampled countless products that can help consumers feel full and help with weight loss. With just 60 calories and 5 grams of protein per egg, Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs were selected as one of their top guilt-free weight loss snacks.
"Snacking is a huge part of my everyday diet and making nutritionally smart choices is essential for those looking to achieve a healthy lifestyle," said Registered Dietitian and Personal Trainer Tammy Lakatos Shames. "Eggland's Best eggs are a go-to snack for me because they are higher in essential nutrients like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids and are packed with protein to keep me feeling fuller longer. I tell my clients, if you are someone that is constantly running short on time, grab Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs since they provide the same great taste and nutrition as the EB shell varieties!"
Eggland's Best eggs are nutritionally superior to ordinary eggs and have 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3 fatty acids, ten times more vitamin E, and four times more vitamin D. EB eggs are nutritionally superior due to their proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil, and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E.
"Being named one of the best snacks for weight loss is important to us because we want to encourage consumers to incorporate Eggland's Best eggs into their diet, not only for breakfast, but also as a healthy snacking option," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "It is an honor for us to be chosen by the Eat This, Not That team because it proves that we are providing consumers with a fresher, better tasting, and nutritionally superior egg that can be part of a healthy diet."
In addition to their Hard-Cooked Peeled Egg variety, Eggland's Best eggs are available in large, extra-large, jumbo, cage free, organic, liquid egg whites, and are certified Kosher.
