Eggland’s Best Now Even More Nutritious

NEW YORK — The Best nutrition. Just got better.(TM) Eggland’s Best, Inc. (EB),
America’s No. 1 branded egg, announced additional improvements to its already
nutritionally superior egg. All EB egg varieties – large, extra large, jumbo,
cage-free and organic – now contain four times more Vitamin D and over three
times more Omega-3 compared to ordinary eggs. EB eggs also contain high levels
of Vitamin B12 and Vitamin E, and are a good source of Vitamin A and Vitamin B2.
Additionally, they contain 25 percent less saturated fat and 19 percent less
cholesterol than regular eggs.

As part of a healthy diet, recent studies indicate increased Vitamin D
consumption can help prevent diabetes.(1) Additionally, a low level of Vitamin D
has also been linked to obesity in study participants and individuals
experiencing chronic pain.(2) Ongoing research also shows a diet rich in Omega-3
can help reduce one’s risk of high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.(3)

“After extensive testing and development, we have successfully increased the
nutritional value of Eggland’s Best eggs without sacrificing EB’S great taste or
increasing the price,” said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland’s Best. “EB eggs
have always been the better eggs and now they are even more nutritious.”

When incorporated into a healthy diet, EB eggs can provide a simple way to
increase the nutrient intake of several nutrients most Americans lack in their
diet. “One of the major barriers to healthy eating is lack of convenience,” said
registered dietitian Julie Upton, MS, RD, co-author of Energy to Burn: The
Ultimate Food and Nutrition Guide to Fuel Your Active Life. “With increased
amounts of Vitamin A, B2, B12, D and Omega-3 plus several other vitamins and
minerals, Eggland’s Best eggs are a convenient nutrient booster. As a healthy
breakfast or snack, EB eggs provide the nutrition and energy to help you stay
nourished and active all day long.”
