SPRINGVILLE, Calif., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Tropical Traditions announced today that it has started shipping organic soy-free eggs high in Omega 3 fatty acids to its consumers nationwide. These new eggs come from chickens that are raised by family farmers and eat a coconut-based soy-free feed mixture that is certified organic, with no genetically modified grains. Tropical Traditions developed the feed the chickens eat: Cocofeed.
Why No Soy?
Soy has become a big part of the human diet post-World War II, with the result that there are many people with soy allergies today. Soy is the cheapest protein available, and it is a major component of most animal feeds. Cheap soy protein allows chickens to grow the fastest, and produce the maximum amount of eggs during their peak laying cycles. If one believes they are allergic to eggs, it could be that they are in fact allergic to soy protein that researchers have now found to be present in egg yolks. Almost all commercial eggs, including those that are organic or marketed as "Omega 3" eggs, are from chickens fed high concentrations of soy beans. Many people are consuming soy protein in their eggs without probably realizing it. Tropical Traditions' soy-free organic eggs have been tested to be soy-free.
Highest Omega 3 Content
Tropical Traditions doesn't simply add flaxseed or flax meal to their chicken feed to make it "high Omega 3." In addition to eliminating soy and using organic coconut pulp, the chickens eat a high-quality fish meal and crab meal. The fish meal is from deep ocean water small fish, and the crab meal comes from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest or Nova Scotia. Laboratory testing has shown that these eggs contain almost twice as much of the Omega 3 fatty acids as other organic "Omega 3" eggs that derive their Omega 3 fatty acids from flax seeds. Not only are high-quality Omega 3 sources added to the chicken's diet, but the high amount of Omega 6 fatty acids that are contained in soy is completely eliminated. Most nutritionists agree that our diet is unbalanced in its ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids because of the abundance of soy and corn in our diets today. Tropical Traditions' organic soy-free high Omega 3 eggs supply a much better Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio because of the absence of soy.
The Eggs Are Shipped to the Consumer's Door
Tropical Traditions developed a special box for delivering its eggs to the homes and businesses of its customers. The box and dividers are 100% recyclable, and no plastic, Styrofoam, or bubble wrap is used. The boxes have been tested with no egg breakage, and Tropical Traditions offers a 100% delivery guarantee.
