Good Housekeeping Awards Eggland’s Best with 2021 Healthy Snack Award

CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J. – Each year, the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Nutrition Lab shines a spotlight on the tastiest snacks that combine innovation and nutrition. After a thorough review, Eggland’s Best (EB) is proud to announce Good Housekeeping magazine has named Eggland’s Best Organic Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs as a 2021 Healthy Snack Award recipient within the Protein All-Stars category. All winners met strict nutritional criteria and will be featured on the publication’s digital platforms this month. Compared to ordinary eggs, EB eggs contain superior nutrition such as 25% less saturated fat, six times more Vitamin D, more than double the Vitamin B12 and Omega-3s and 10 times more Vitamin E, making them the perfect nutrient-dense snack.

“Experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute Nutrition Lab aim to help consumers make sense of the labels at the grocery store and empower shoppers to make smarter choices by providing evidence-based nutrition recommendations,” said Good Housekeeping Institute’s Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Stefani Sassos MS, RDN, CSO, CDN. “Eggland’s Best Organic Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs are a convenient and nutritious on-the-go snack, making it easy to obtain essential vitamins and nutrients.”

With an abundance of new snacks and health claims arriving on shelves every day, figuring out what to add to your grocery cart can sometimes feel overwhelming. The in-house team of nutrition experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Nutrition Lab rigorously analyzed ingredient lists, nutrition fact labels, packaging claims and flavor profiles of hundreds of snacks to find the best options available at the grocery store. Consumer testers also weighed in on taste and provided additional real-life analysis.

“We’re honored to receive the Good Housekeeping 2021 Healthy Snack Award,” said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland’s Best. “At Eggland’s Best, we are dedicated to providing the only eggs that offer better taste, freshness and nutrition, and this award reinforces our commitment to quality nutrition for all.”

The superior nutrition of Eggland’s Best 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. Eggland’s Best’s patented method of production and verification ensures that every Eggland’s Best egg has these superior qualities.

“Awards and honors such as the Good Housekeeping Healthy Snack Award make it easier for consumers to identify the most nutritious options, which can be pretty overwhelming even for a nutrition professional,” said Marissa Meshulam, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and founder of MPM Nutrition. “I recommend Eggland’s Best eggs to my clients as a healthy snack, meal or ingredient in their recipes since they are the only eggs that contain superior nutrition like six times more Vitamin D and more than double the Vitamin B12 and Omega-3s. Plus, they contain a variety of micronutrients that can help support a healthy immune system.”

Eggland’s Best eggs have been the recipient of more than 100 awards and honors for the product’s superior taste, nutrition, freshness and variety. For more information on this award, see here. Learn more about Eggland’s Best eggs and delicious EB recipes at
