Add Only The Best Eggs

Gone are the days when the only decision you had to make was white or brown. Today there are a half a dozen other things to consider when selecting the perfect egg! Understanding the differences between labels will help you to choose from the many options of high quality eggs we have at Haggen.

Organic

Eggs labeled “organic” by the USDA come from chickens that are kept cage-free with outdoor access. These chickens can’t be given antibiotics and their food must be organic and free of animal by-products.

Free-Range

Hens that are “free-range” are not only cage-free but are also given access to the outdoors. However, free-range does not necessarily mean that the hens were pastured; it simply means that the hens had the option to go outside.

Omega-3

These specialty eggs come from hens that were fed a diet rich in omega-3 sources, like flaxseed or algae. These eggs are richer in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3’s are thought to promote a healthier nervous system as well as a healthier cardiovascular system.

Pasture-Raised

Pastured hens often eat diets that include greens, seeds, worms and bugs, which are more akin to a natural chicken’s diet. Studies have shown that eggs from pastured hens may have more omega-3 fatty acids, more vitamins and less fat and cholesterol.
