About This Food

Description

Once shunned by dietitians and cardiologists for their high cholesterol content, research now shows that the egg has some pretty incredible benefits ranging from bossting weight loss efforts to protecting your vision.  

In addition to providing an inexpensive source of high-quality protein, eggs are also an excellent source of the antioxidant mineral selenium and the best source of vision-protecting nutrient lutein

While the yolk contains about two-thirds of the total suggested daily maximum intake of cholesterol, research shows cholesterol in foods has little impact on cholesterol in your blood.

When choosing eggs opt for pastured eggs from chickens foraging to boost your intake of vitamins A and E as well as omega-3 fatty acids.

Selecting & Storing

Inspect eggs carefully before purchasing-look for cracks, breaks, or excessive dirt. Store eggs in their original carton in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Fresh eggs will keep for four to five weeks and hard-cooked eggs can be refrigerated for up to one week.
