CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After reviewing thousands of packaged food and drink products, Men's Health has once again awarded Eggland's Best Eggs with the title of "Best Eggs" in the 2017 Men's Health Best Foods for Men Awards. The Men's Health Best Foods for Men list includes healthy, flavorful and easy-to-prepare products that were taste-tested by the team at Men's Health with the goal of helping consumers select the most nutritious products. This year Eggland's Best eggs have been honored by Men's Health for their superior quality, freshness, nutrition and taste.
"Our goal at Eggland's Best is to consistently provide our customers with a nutritionally superior egg that has the best quality, taste, and freshness," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "We are again honored to be named to Men's Health's prestigious list of Best Foods for Men."
Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best eggs contain five times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and three times more vitamin B12. Eggland's Best's superior nutrition is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland's Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
"It's no surprise Eggland's Best eggs once again made the Best Foods for Men list since they provide a nutritionally superior product," said Registered Dietitian Lyssie Lakatos. "I always feel confident recommending Eggland's Best Eggs over ordinary eggs to my clients since they will benefit from more nutrients like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids – which are crucial for both men and women."
