Eggs, educate me.
Are the organic free range eggs any better for you? Are they more nutritious? Or is this all only about the way the eggs are produced?
What do you buy and why?

You are wasting your money on range free . All that means is that there is an open door on the hatchery . But most chickens will not leave the heard and to go outside . Out off thousands of chickens maybe 10 to 15 will venture out . It's not like they are outside like on a farm .bunmin wrote: ↑Mar 18th, 2019 6:43 amI buy organic free range as a moral and ethical decision and accept paying extra. As far as taste or nutrition..... I've been eating them long enough now that I can usually taste the difference between free range and standard. Nutritionally, there's no difference.

I'm not even sure why to be honest.
I do like the yolk size and color.
Eggs in general are cheaper at the supermarket on sales, but I can't be assed to visit a certain JUST for eggs.
If you count the regular vs regular price, the Born 3s are close enough for me.

I know that and am fine with it. If it's a choice between eggs from chickens stuffed into cages barely big enough for them or eggs from chickens that can at least wander around I'll choose the latter. I get the majority of my eggs from my in-laws who have a hobby farm so for the few extra cartons I need a year I can spare the extra dollars for my own personal peace of mind, however misplaced you may think it is.pfbmgd wrote: ↑Mar 18th, 2019 7:54 amYou are wasting your money on range free .

Go watch a few investigative reports on subject . I bet it will change your mind . The amount of omega you get from eggs minimal at best . But it's great marketing .lecale wrote: ↑Mar 18th, 2019 12:21 pmWith the Burnbrae free range eggs for instance the hens are loose in a barn and also have access to a grassed pen. This makes a difference because the carotenoids in grass, dandelion flowers, etc. colour the yolks deeply. Battery hen egg yolks are naturally quite pale but producers use feed with carotenoids in them to make a market-suitable coloured yolk, but they don't have the added nutrition of all the other things in natural greens. Omega eggs are made by feeding relatively expensive flax seed to the chickens. Better diet, better eggs.
