Nutritional Value

Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods money can buy. They are a natural source of many nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins and minerals. Even better, an average egg contains only 80 calories.

Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12 and vitamin D. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, biotin, pantothenic acid and choline. Eggs also contain essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus, iodine and selenium.

With the guidelines on consumption because of their cholesterol content now removed, eggs are a healthy, convenient fast food for all the family.
