All Types of Eggs Have the Same Nutrition

Did you know that no matter what type of eggs you buy, you’re getting the same nutrition? It’s true! Organic, free range, free run and regular eggs all provide the same great nutrition. The exceptions to the rule are Vitamin D or Omega 3 enhanced eggs. With these eggs, the hens have been fed a diet rich in these nutrients and that benefit is passed through to their eggs, for us to enjoy!
