Free Range Eggs
Liberty, MO: Compared to conventional eggs, free-range hens lay nutritionally superior eggs. As compared to USDA data, free-range eggs 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.
In addition to the health benefits for humans, the chickens benefit, too. Many times commercially raised chickens are crowded into small spaces and never see the light of day and are fed a diet that consists of corn, soy or cottonseed with additives.
When you buy free-range eggs you can support more humane conditions for the chickens, comforted by the knowledge that they have foraged on real pasture, under real sunlight or rain and be assured that their natural diet, which includes green plants, insects and worms, has ensured their nutritional superiority for you and your family. So spending that little bit extra may be well worth it in the long run ? for those watching their cholesterol and fat intake and for the overall health and nutrition of everyone else, not to mention the fact that the animals are more humanely treated.
All great reasons for making the switch!So if you’re in the Kansas City area contact Full Sircle Farms for your grass fed beef and free range eggs.
