Good News for Good Food

For many years, eggs were considered a cholesterol-packed villain in the story of you versus heart disease, and many people erroneously limited – or altogether avoided – eggs as a part of their regular heart healthy diet.

Now a report from a panel of U.S. nutrition and medical experts is debunking that myth for good. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, a federal publication that has far-reaching impact on our food choices, announced “cholesterol is not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.” Meaning, eggs can shake off the bad reputation and be recognized as a nutritious and convenient part of your healthy, well-balanced diet.

And there’s more! According to CNN, the report also identifies under-consumed “shortfall nutrients,” including vitamins A, D, and E, as well as folate, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. You can find all of these nutrients and a slew of others in – you guessed it – EGGS!  To read the complete article from CNN, click here: “Cholesterol in food not a concern, new report says

So go ahead. Crack in to our eggs for breakfast, for dinner, or anytime. They’re good for you!

    Your eggs used to be good when they had a higher omega 3 content. Your current level of omega 3 is too low to be considered nutritious. You should go back to the flax feed and omega 3 levels of over 200 mg/egg. The whole idea that any customer can say the eggs taste fishy is ridiculous. It is impossible for flax feed to change the egg taste to be fishy.
    I never buy eggs less than 200mg/egg which means I don’t buy yours anymore.
    I hope you will consider your position. Any knowledgeable nutrition oriented person should know that eating eggs lass than 200mg is not considered wise because of the high omega 6 content of the egg. As you know Christopher eggs have a 1:1 ratio of omega 3/6 while yours is closer to 1:9 omega 3/6. Anything less than 1:3 (200mg) is bad, considering all the process foods eat and omega 6 oils we consume.

      Hi Bob,

      Thanks for your comment. We try to balance input from our consumers, so we’ll keep your thoughts in mind if we receive more questions on the issue. I can personally attest to the fishy smell/taste, but some people are more sensitive to it than others. Thanks!

Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs not affected by egg recall!

Over 200 million eggs have been recalled recently by another company due to a concern over Salmonella stemming from a single Rose Acre Farms location in North Carolina.

None of our eggs are part of this recall as we would never produce eggs on a factory farm of that size or style. If you’re concerned about eggs you purchased recently, see what brands have been recalled.

Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs are produced responsibly and safely on small family farms. Learn more about why our eggs are different.
