CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Women's Health has continued its annual tradition of identifying the top foods for women, and has awarded Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs a coveted spot on their prestigious 2015 "Supermarket Stars" list.
"Being chosen as one of the healthiest and best tasting foods that you can put in your supermarket cart by Women's Health is a huge honor for Eggland's Best," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "We have received this award a number of times in the past several years and it is an achievement we strive for every year."
Along with being nutritionally superior, an independent study by the Journal of Applied Poultry Research has shown that Eggland's Best eggs also stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs.
"As a nutritionist and personal trainer, my clients are always asking for foods that are not only the most nutritious, but are also convenient," said Registered Dietitian and Personal Trainer Lyssie Lakatos. "I always recommend Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs because they are what I eat every day! They are a staple in my refrigerator because they are a quick, portable option that is a powerhouse of nutrition."
Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, four times more vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and three times more vitamin B12. This is due to EB's 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 to their Hard-Cooked Peeled Egg variety, Eggland's Best eggs are available in their Classic Large, Extra Large, Jumbo, Organic and Cage-Free shell varieties, as well as Liquid Egg Whites.
