CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Sept. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After rigorous taste-testing of hundreds and hundreds of products to find the best packaged foods, Eggland's Best Cage-Free Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs have been named a winner in the 2017 SELF Healthy Food Awards. The SELF Healthy Food Awards reinforce several core values: Healthy eating should be simple, affordable and accessible — and the products should taste great as well. The great taste and superior nutrition of Eggland's Best eggs were determining factors in the product being selected.
"Eggland's Best is extremely proud to be recognized as a winner of the 2017 SELF Healthy Food Awards," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "At Eggland's Best, our goal is to provide the best tasting, most nutritious, and freshest egg possible to our consumers and their families."
"I absolutely love Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs, and they are the only ones I feed my family," said Dawn Jackson Blatner, Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. "They provide the same superior nutrition as all Eggland's Best products, plus I get the convenience of not having to hard boil eggs myself. They are economical, and ideal for making egg salad, deviled eggs or as a quick on-the-go snack!"
Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best 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 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.
