Eggs offer a unique mix of protein, antioxidants, choline and other vitamins and minerals. Eggs can be part of a satisfying, balanced meal at breakfast or any time of day.
Did you know?
- The high-quality protein in an egg is essential for building and maintaining lean body mass.
- One egg has varying amounts of 13 essential vitamins and minerals plus 6 grams of highquality protein.
- Look for shells that are clean and whole. Don’t use an egg if it’s cracked or leaking.
- A “Sell By” or “Expiration Date” ensures eggs aren’t kept on shelves past a certain date. However, eggs can be safely eaten 2-3 weeks beyond the expiration date or sell by date.
- The color of the egg shell or yolk has nothing to do with the egg’s nutritional value, quality or flavor. Hens with white feathers and white ear lobes lay white eggs; hens with red feathers and red ear lobes lay brown eggs.
- Why do boiled eggs turn green? The harmless color change is from a reaction between the egg white and yolk. It happens when eggs have been cooked for too long or at too high a temperature.
- Eggs are not just for breakfast! Eggs can be enjoyed at any meal as a source of protein and other important nutrients.
- Compass Group is committed to serving cage-free eggs.
