CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J., Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As the leading advocate for female consumers, the Women's Choice Award® has honored Eggland's Best with the 2017 America's Most Recommended™ Eggs award, for the second consecutive year. The Women's Choice Award® seal helps women make smart choices for themselves and their families based on the experiences and recommendations of women across the nation.
Brands are selected for a Women's Choice Award® based on a national survey that was distributed to over 100,000 women across America who were asked to select the brands they most highly recommend to their family and friends. The award seal represents the extraordinary power and significance of today's female consumer in determining the most recommended brands, products and services.
"With women accounting for 93 percent of all food purchases, being voted the most recommended egg brand by women across America two years in a row is quite an honor for Eggland's Best," said Delia Passi, CEO and Founder of the Women's Choice Award®. "The Women's Choice Award® provides a unique opportunity for women to identify brands they know and love. We salute Eggland's Best for their focus on excellence, a commitment that is recognized by female consumers nationwide."
Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland's Best eggs contain five times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E and three times more vitamin B12. Eggland's Best's elevated 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.
"We are honored to once again be recognized with the Women's Choice Award® as America's Most Recommended™ Eggs," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "We truly value the opinions of our consumers, and are thrilled that women nationwide have put their trust in our brand to provide a superior egg with better taste, better nutrition and better freshness."
