CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year, Men's Health tastes and tests hundreds of samples in various food categories to help consumers determine the most nutritious foods. 2015 marks the eleventh year in a row that Eggland's Best eggs have been recognized for their quality, freshness, nutrition and taste. This year, Eggland's Best Organic eggs have been awarded the title of "Best Eggs" in Men's Health's list of "Best Foods for Men."
"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."
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. This is due to Eggland's Best's proprietary all-vegetarian diet that contains healthy grains, canola oil, and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, and sea kelp.
"Eggland's Best eggs are an essential part of my daily routine and the only eggs I serve my family," said Registered Dietitian and Personal Trainer Tammy Lakatos Shames. "It's important to start the day with a satisfying meal filled with nutrients to help your body refuel, especially after a great morning workout, and EB eggs make it easy to pack in protein and extra vitamins and minerals."
Eggland's Best eggs are available in Classic, Cage Free, Organic, Hard-Cooked and Peeled and Liquid Egg White varieties.
