Eggs are a Protein House
Protein is essential for building and repairing tissue. Muscles, organs, skin, hair as well as antibodies, enzymes, and hormones are all made from protein. Eggs contain all nine essential amino acids making them an excellent source of high-quality protein. One egg provides 13% of the daily protein that our bodies need. It's simply the perfect "protein food".
Eggs Have Healthy Fats (Energy)
A serving of two large eggs contains 11 grams of fat, of which around 2/3 of the fat is unsaturated. This is an excellent energy form and a great way at any point in the day to get you going.
With a slight change to the feeding program of the hen you can make the egg even better! By adding an all-natural land-based ingredient called linPRO-24 you can have an Omega-3 enriched egg program. Consumers are looking for nutritionally better foods that are produced naturally, and Omega-3 eggs are perfect! Omega-3 are classified as the essential fats because they cannot be synthesized by humans, only consumed through your diet. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory fats that support a positive immunity response promoting a heathier heart.
Did you know that Omega-3 eggs have greater than double or even triple the amount of Omega-3 compared to ordinary eggs? Want to know more about Omega-3 eggs? O&T Farms has the simple feeding program for your hens!
