Eggs: High Quality Protein, Low-Cost Nutrition

Family Cooking with Eggs

When it comes to good nutrition, eggs are hard to surpass. Eggs provide the most bioavailable protein and nutrients per ounce of any food on the market. Conventional table eggs are a low-cost way to give your family more protein, as well as vitamins and nutrients like Vitamin E, Vitamin D, Lutein and Choline. Specialty eggs available today contain enhanced nutritional benefits including Omega 3.  Whether you purchase table eggs or specialty eggs, it’s hard to go wrong with this nutritional powerhouse!

You can use eggs in all sorts of ways—this versatile food does more than scramble. Visit our Egg Recipes page for lots of great egg recipe ideas.

Have you ever wondered how to tell if an egg is still good, why your hard-boiled eggs didn’t turn out, or what that white ropey part in the egg white is? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page for answers to those questions and more.

Are you looking for a high-quality, low-cost, safe, and shelf-stable protein powder for use in low-calorie, muscle-building protein shakes and recipes? Try our Sport Protein dried egg white powder—it’s a higher-quality, lower-cost alternative to whey and soy protein powders.
