Organic, free-range eggs are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. The egg whites and egg yolks are rich in healthy cholesterol, vitamins A, B6, B12, D, E and K, lecithin, betaine, choline, and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. Organic eggs are a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids and high-quality protein. Organic eggs are an important component to baking, cooking and make an ideal breakfast that will keep you fuller for longer due to the healthy fat and protein content.
Organic eggs come from chicken that have been pasture-raised and allowed to roam freely. They have not been exposed to antibiotics, GMO grains, hormones or chemical pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
The Australian Organic Directory lists ethical companies that provide free-range, organic eggs from pasture-raised chickens.
