Why Eggland’s Best are AMERICA’S #1 EGGS
Eggland’s Best eggs are produced to the finest standards of taste, nutrition and quality
Many consumers tell us that Eggland’s Best eggs are the best tasting eggs they’ve ever eaten. Eggland’s Best eggs taste great because of the superior quality of our hens’ feed and because of Eggland’s Best’s strict quality and production standards.
Unique, Patented Hen Feed
It all starts with the special Eggland’s Best hen feed – a patented, all-vegetarian feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil, and an all-natural supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. The Eggland’s Best hen feed contains no animal fat, no animal by-products, and no recycled or processed food. Eggland’s Best never uses hormones, steroids, or antibiotics of any kind. Simply put, because the Eggland’s Best hen diet is superior, Eggland’s Best hens lay nutritionally superior eggs.
Eggland’s Best eggs and feed program are so special and unique that the United States Patent Office has granted the company a patent (US 5,246,717): “Eggs compatible with cholesterol reducing diet and method of producing the same.”
Rigorous Quality Assurance
