CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Taste of Home, the leading food, cooking and entertaining media brand, has revealed their first-ever "Best Loved Brands," celebrating the most frequent, go-to ingredients and appliances used in their test kitchen. Eggland's Best is honored to be named an inaugural winner as a star of the kitchen, in the "Best Eggs" category.
The 25-category list was created by the Taste of Home editorial team and Test Kitchen experts, who test and cook thousands of recipes each year. Products were evaluated based on performance, taste, availability, reliability and price.
"We are thrilled that Eggland's Best was selected as a Best Loved Brand by the kitchen experts at Taste of Home," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "We work to provide consumers the best egg possible, and this honor proves that we are providing them with a fresher, better tasting, and nutritionally superior egg that can make any recipe better."
Compared to regular eggs, Eggland's Best eggs contain 25 percent less saturated fat, five times more vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and three times more vitamin B12. In addition, a recent independent study showed that Eggland's Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs. Eggland's Best'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.
"Who better to weigh in on the very best products than our editors and Test Kitchen experts, who are in the kitchen every day to evaluate, edit and select the perfect recipes," said Catherine Cassidy, Taste of Home Editor-in-Chief. "Every home cook has his or her favorite brand or go-to appliance, and we hope Eggland's Best and all of the winning brands inspire our readers and fans to keep cooking great food that they can enjoy with their families."
