CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- After reviewing hundreds and hundreds of submissions, Clean Eating magazine has selected Eggland's Best (EB) Organic Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs as one of its 'Top One-Hundred Healthiest Foods in Stores' as part of the 7th annual Clean Choice Awards. The Clean Choice Awards were created to help shoppers choose the cleanest, healthiest and best packaged foods at the supermarket. Winners were chosen based on several factors including convenience, trendiness, taste, and clean & wholesome ingredients.
Clean Eating magazine selected Eggland's Best Organic Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs due to their superior nutritional benefits and great taste, in addition to being the ultimate protein-rich snack. Eggland's Best met strict requirements when it came to having clean, wholesome ingredients with no added hormones or antibiotics. The convenience of Eggland's Best Organic Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs was a key factor, since they are the perfect snack for on-the-go, after a workout, or for adding to salads.
"We are very excited that our Organic Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs will join our other Eggland's Best products in receiving the stamp of approval from Clean Eating magazine as one of the top healthiest foods found in stores," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "We are also proud to offer our customers innovative products that easily fit within their busy lifestyles while at the same time providing superior nutritional benefits and taste."
Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs are convenient, tasty, and have all the same great nutrition as other Eggland's Best products. Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12. EB eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin B5. EB's superior nutritional profile 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.
"It's no surprise that a better egg with six times more vitamin D and 25% less saturated fat continues to win awards," said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. "Not only do Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs offer the convenience of being ready-to-eat right out of the package, but they also are delicious and have higher levels of essential vitamins and nutrients when compared to ordinary eggs, which is why they are the only hard-cooked eggs I recommend to my clients and serve to my family."
