“Our testing has found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:
• 1/3 less cholesterol
• 1/4 less saturated fat
• 2/3 more vitamin A
• 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
• 3 times more vitamin E
• 7 times more beta carotene
Look at the specific numbers here (this links to a PDF file download; the link is safe, at least of today).
We are currently looking into getting our own eggs (which are not only free-range, but also are organic) tested for their nutritional content. If you have any comments or suggestions or questions, please leave a comment!
