When it comes to buying eggs hopefully, you can contribute to eggs coming from happy chickens. The best eggs too buy come from organic free range and cage free eggs. What this means is that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires that egg producers be able to demonstrate that free range chickens that lay eggs have access to the outdoors. There is no government oversight as to the quality of the outdoor environment, or the amount of time the hen has access to the outdoors. There are many producers who label their eggs as cage-free in addition to, or instead of free-range. If anything purchasing organic free range and cage free eggs help to support chickens that are treated better than conventional eggs. Conventional eggs are your standard eggs that you find at the grocery store. The chickens are usually raised in an overcrowded hen house or a cage and never get outside. Typically conventional eggs are fed grain-based food that is supplemented with vitamins and minerals. Conventional eggs also may be treated with antibiotics and hormones. Organic eggs are not treated with antibiotics or hormones and also receive the organic feed. Organic eggs may have had limited access to the outdoors. While cage free eggs are better than conventional eggs, it doesn't mean they will have access to outdoor, but it is still a bit better for the chickens.
The nutritional value of an egg is an excellent source of protein, iron, Vitamin A, and calcium. Eggs can be used in all sorts of recipes and are especially popular in a wide variety of breakfast recipes. Because of their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) categorizes eggs as Meats in the Food Guide Pyramid. You can prepare eggs in a variety of breakfast recipes and main dish recipes from sunny side up eggs, scrambled egg recipes, the best egg sandwich recipe, boiled egg recipes, poached egg recipes, omelet recipes and more. Eggs can also be used in quiche recipes, stir fry recipes, souffle recipes, and more. It is very important to store eggs carefully as edible eggs need to be handled properly because they may contain levels of Salmonella bacteria that may cause severe food poisoning. It is important and highly recommended that eggs are refrigerated to prevent the growth of Salmonella. Refrigeration also helps to preserve the taste and the texture of the egg. In Europe, eggs are not typically washed, and the shells are dirtier. However, the cuticle is undamaged, and they do not require refrigeration. Whereas in the United States, eggs are washed thus damaging the cuticle of the egg, and, therefore, needing to be refrigerated.
