Understanding Egg Selection

Understanding Egg Selection
Shopping for eggs use to be simple – extra -large, large or medium, brown or white.  There is a wider selection of eggs in the supermarket.  Here is a guide to help you with labels on eggs.
·         Caged hens. Most eggs sold in the super market come from caged hens.  These cages house a number of chickens.  
·         Cage-free hens. These hens live in large barns and are free to walk and move around.
·         Free-range chickens. These chickens live in barns with access to the outdoors.
·         USDA Organic.  These chickens are not caged and have outdoor access. They are fed an organic, vegetarian diet free from antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides.
·         Natural. Products labeled natural are minimally processed and have no artificial ingredients.
·         Omega-3. Hens are fed fish or flaxseed.
