"The creativity shown within the finalist dish photos was extremely impressive and also shows how a simple ingredient swaps can turn an ordinary dish into something delicious and nourishing," says Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner. "Using a better egg like EB makes for a tasty and more nutritious dish, which is why they are the only eggs I recommend to my clients and family. I truly can't wait to see who America picks as the Grand Prize winner of the EB Foodtography Contest."
Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent 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. 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.
